Goth Type 33: The Casual Goth by Trellia Goth Type 33: The Casual Goth by Trellia
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!

I've had loads of requests for this one for ages now, even though visually Casual Goths aren't so interesting. I suppose there must be a lot out there!

You think there'd be a Broke Goth? It's basically a goth who can't afford all the fancy outfits, so they just wear regular clothes that are black.

It's this and Corp Goth, I think is most common nowadays. Mostly cause of the times and stereotypes being toned down, than what they used to be.

I'm definitely a casual goth. Mostly for comfort reasons; I just don't feel like dressing fancy for daily activities, plus I live in a pretty hot environment, so I usually shorts and sandals. I do try to wear t-shirts that are kid of goth-ish, most of them being black and all of them having some sort of funny text (like "I'm Not Antisocial, I Just Don't Like You") or a character/characters (like my Redbubble shirt of some Ghost Pokemon that says "You're Scary."). Despite my casual look, though, I'm proud to be goth.

Ahhhh! Your icon features my all-time favorite MySim character!!!! That makes me so excited!!! I feel I'm either a casual goth, or not at all a goth, ahah. Cuz these days I'm into bright colors. I have a handful of skull things tho; a skull blanket, a couple tops with a skull or 2 of em, necklace and bracelets with skulls on em.
...Ah, just reread the stereo-type here, and methinks I'm just somebody who likes goth stuff but isn't actually. ^w^ ' Cuz I never wear things with band names on em, and I don't have any tattoos. And never did outright dye my hair, either.

I'm falling for some kind of stereotype goth. :) I usually dress in a typically black or otherwise darkly-colored t-shirt with no make-up or accessories. If I were a goth, I wear black, wear goth makeup and have accessories with skulls and bows on them. But don't worry, I draw OCs that are casual goths. :)

I think I most likely fall into this stereotype. I usually dress in a (typically black or otherwise darkly-colored) cartoon t-shirt with no make-up or accessories whatsoever. Heck, if I were to tell someone I was a Goth, they most likely wouldn't believe me.

The fact that I'm blonde and have a wide range of musical tastes doesn't help, but it's not like I care.

The casual goth could also be regarded as a Goth who focuses more on the mental side of goth than the fashion side, or one who has come to the stark reality of how expensive/time consuming a truly goth appearance can be

Clothing wise, this is my style, but I'm more perky. I can be pretty moody and morbid sometimes, but I still stick to being an anime nut and happy fan of Siouxsie, Bauhaus, and to a larger extent, any death metal group. I am, as you could tell, a death rocker, and I sometimes with dress rivethead-y, but on most days, I'll just wear a black t-shirt and jeans.

[I can identify with this type of goth too, as I don't have the Victorian clothing, dark makeup, or jewelry, either.  My clothes are basically more of a darker version of typical casual clothing, although I don't have any T-shirts of bands.]

I call 'em Casual Friday Goths:  jeans, t-shirts, Converse, and hoodies, all of the time.  Dressing up for them is putting on Docs or creepers.

this me when I go to school or am out and about with my girlfriend. We really only don our more eccentric clothing when going somewhere a tad more special. Usually also because we live in the valley in Nor Cal and it gets too hot to wear all those layers!

This is how I go about most of my time... purely for the fact all my nice stuff has to be dry-cleaned or hand-washed because of all the crushed velvet, satin and lace. Plus, the pretty stuff is expensive for a College Student in the UK with no student funds, no money entitlement, and your ex-stepfather is a dick and only gives you a fiver every month (yet my brothers get 30 each).

I will agree with many above, this best describes me nowadays. In my early 20s and teens I was a combo of others. But coming up on 30, my fiance and I have reverted to this.

This describes my usual outfit, as the things I really wish to wear are not sold in this small town. So this mixed with geek goth for my usual style. xD
