Of course, the majority of Goths are unique in their style and music preferences. However, within the subculture there are certain "types" of Goth with particular characteristics. And it can be fun to classify them. Naturally, classifications for each "type" vary from person to person, so you may disagree with what I say here!

Perhaps there is no goth quite as elegant as this type. Victorian fashion is gorgeous.

Oh, I know someone who dresses like this. It's not really a dying breed, after all :D

Thank you for making these! As a Goth (not getting into my "stereotype"), It's hard to explain the different variations to my girlfriend's younger brother and even sometimes my girlfriend (don't get me wrong, she's completely understanding of my lifestyle, even if she gets confused about it). But with these fun visuals, I should have no problem and no longer be at a loss for words! So from the bottom of my bat-shaped heart, THANK YOU!

I love the victorian era in general. I don't dress like it more I like it because my mother had victorian deco in her room while I was growing up.

As author writes, classifications for each "type" vary from person to person.
I am pleased to see victorian goth type here. As an one of them I can say just that I have wider tastes in music (but Rasputina inclluded :) )
And you could also find some stuff suitable for steampunk and EGL in my wardrobe - how surprising for somebody who loves victorian era, lol :)

This type of fashion is so detailed that it's a work of art unto itself. <3

I would love to go to a party where people dressed up. A masqurede ball would be amazing! It's pretend play for adults!

Victorian men's fashion was epic. Men have boring fashion these days. Why, oh why, have we been deprived of the right to wear dashing and stylish hats for every occasion?

Not a fan of goths, per se, but the image is cute!
