It’s World Goth Day on Friday!

Posted on May 20, 2015 by Fancy Dress Ball

World Goth Day

This Friday is World Goth Day… are you prepared? World Goth Day is a day when the goth scene celebrates all things goth. So how can you join in?

First of all, take this handy quiz to see if you are in fact a goth already!

Next, do your make up like The Crow, the ultimate goth movie.


Now, go and find all the black clothing you can. You may need to buy some. If it’s PVC or leather, all the better. Buckles are also good, as is black lace (no, not Agadoo!) If you’re really stuck, take a look at our site for some great goth fancy dress costumes.

Hair is a major part of the goth look. You might not want to go the whole hog and dye your hair jet black – so a wig could be a good idea! Goths do have a wide variety of styles for their black locks, but our favourite is that of Robert Smith from The Cure. Here’s why:


We’ve no idea just how much back-combing and hair spray is involved in this look, but we really love it!

Alternatively, if black is a bit… dark for you, you could bleach your hair so that it’s bright white and put some coloured stripes in.

The next, and possibly most important step, is the music. Although there’s a lot of fashion and style surrounding the goth scene, it originally started in England in the early 80s after the post-punk scene. Bands to look out for are Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division and Sisters of Mercy.

Finally, go to the World Goth Day website and download some music and posters and… other gothy stuff.


And there you have it: World Goth Day for beginners!
