VorFemme - were you living in the back of my closet?

that is how I wanted to dress back then too.   (I graduated high school in 1977)

then lots of years later I joined the SCA and have my purple dress with the long, long sleeves and my green cloak with a hood (really - yes I do)


and I agree about going to the reunions - BAH - you don't want to talk to me in everyday life - why go to a party and pretend like we were the bestest buddies in high school.  (Yes, a lot of my classmates are still in my tiny town)
Reality is for people who lack Imagination

I sewed the dress and the cape (Make It Yourself With Wool in 1972) - due to preacher's and part time teachers not being  paid princely sums of money, I wore that cape for the rest of high school.

After graduating high school and then getting married my first semester in college (1975 was a busy year), DH found a clearance sale so that we could afford to buy a gray leather coat (still paid too much but I wore it until the 1990s when I could no longer belt it even after having the second baby - so I suppose the cost per wearing was much reduced even if it wasn't THAT cold that often in West Texas & Arizona).  Especially considering that while active duty, I had to wear my uniform coat when working, not the gray leather..........

Gray leather isn't THAT warm - but a trench coat style wraps nicely over a sweater or two and cut the wind - which was more of a problem than really low temperatures in West Texas and Phoenix, Arizona.

When I first met my ex-boyfriend's sister, I happened to be wearing all black.  I have dark hair and am naturally pale.  I was also wearing red lipstick because hey - I like it, and it looks good on me.  When his mother, whom I had yet to meet, inquired as to what I was like, his sister told her she thought I was a Goth (no, I am not, nor have I ever been).

Upon hearing that, his mother began referring to me as "that devil worshipper Goth."

Any wonder why he is now my ex?

HA! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who gets the Goth thing!

I've got another one, as this kind of thing happens to me a lot. This one happened in Spain, but the perpetrator was English. (Gibraltar... it happens.)

I was out with my boyfriend, who is slim and pale and blonde, and not even REMOTELY Goth looking. I was wearing a long black skirt, a black shirt, and a black leather jacket (so beat up it had no buttons) because it was nighttime and I was chilly. I think I was wearing black ballet flats. Again, like in my OP I was wearing my (then) waist-length blonde hair loose and beachy. My makeup was practically non-existent.

Guy is standing a few people away from me at the bar, and sees my boyfriend come over to me and give me a kiss. I disappear for a minute, and when I come back my boyfriend has a very funny look on his face and suggests we leave. As it turns out, Guy took it upon himself to ask my boyfriend why he'd brought a "mosher" to the pub, and was it a fetish thing? He went on to ask if I lead BF around on a leash.

 ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

Needless to say, its a very good thing that my BF got me out of there before I caught wind of this conversation.

In the spirit of interesting assumptions, I had a nice conversation with the BF of a lady who fits Guy's assumptions.


He was a banker.  >:D

I have nothing but respect for people who can manage to wear Goth stylishly.  I tried to wear Goth one time to go to a particular club with my friend...

And I looked about like this video at 30:48:

(Chosen in terms of awkwardness, even though it's not exactly Goth)
You looked like cute corseted not-Evil Willow? I have to tell you, most of the guys I know would be drooling on their keyboard at that sight.
