Goth Type 8: The Perky Goth

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!

Perky Goths are undoubtedly the most fun Goths to be around. I'd say that luckily, most of the Goths I've met could be classified as Perky - it's more about attitude than clothes or music tastes, after all.

As with all my work, please DON'T steal this! If you want to use it for whatever purposes, email me and ask me first.

Tv Tropes says Helena Bonham Carter's one of these. Not sure if I agree with that fashion-wise, but definitely personality-wise.

I'm a kind of low-key Perky Goth; I'm not hyper, and I'm not always 100% optimistic, but I'm usually in a decent mood. Plus I love Halloween, Voltaire, cute things (especially cute goth things), and cartoons. And I love characters who are Perky Goths, like Julian from RC9GN and the entire Ruby Gloom cast.

I'm a fan of being a perky goth, wearing all pink and black and making OCs involving goths wearing pink and black and wearing stripes and skulls and pretty pink bows. :heart: I remember the time I drew Drusilla Wednesday von Dirge-Klot, Felicity and Meghann Lynn! Not all goths are gloomy.

While not hyper, I am a pretty optimistic and sound person. This suits me pretty well, I must say.

In fact, it gets to the point where most people wouldn't think that I am a Goth...I mean, I just realized it recently, but my dad didn't believe me when I told him I was one.

(Also, the Voltaire part is definitely accurate.)

This like Abby (the Forensic Analyst in NCIS), she's bubbly, total sweetheart (like wanting to give everyone hugs), childish, and sees the team as her family (especially Gibbs who's like a father to her), sensitive and drinks lots of caffeine (Caf-Pow) She also wears lots of black, big boots, skulls and studded jewelry (including a dog collar), likes unusual music (often with strange or dark names and techno inspired), has lots of dark, creepy decorations and toys and even sleeps in a coffin. As Tony said, she's a conundrum and the happiest goth you'll ever meet. She's awesome.

OMG! I was calling myself a "Positive Goth" instead of a "Perky Goth" but that is SO me! I think of death, all things creepy with fun and exitment. I would make a joke about death and then crack up. I actually started calling myself insane because of this odd behavior. and the fact i'd be serious whle giggling the whole time...
