If you look in our Adult Costumes section, you’ll see a heading for “Gothic Women”. Ooooo….. The word “gothic” can describe a style of architecture, painting, sculpture, music or other arts produced between the 13th and 15th centuries or the Medieval or Middle Ages. According to Dictionary.com, Gothic can also mean, “noting or pertaining to a style of literature characterized by a gloomy setting, grotesque, mysterious, or violent events, and an atmosphere of degeneration and decay”. Creepy! For most of us, it just means “dark”.
You’ll see what we mean when you browse the Gothic Women costumes section . There are historical pieces, great for Renaissance Faires or LARPS, costumes that would rock any Gothic Lolita event, and outfits that would be great for Halloween.
Some favorites are:
Ghouldilocks – as you can see above, she’s the biggest, because she’s this blogger’s favorite! A ghoulish twist on a childhood tale—the wolf in grandma’s clothing better be scared!
Nightmare Black Widow – very scary and webby, she’s even got web-wings!
The Wicked Queen – click on her picture and we’ll suggest an even scarier crown.
Vampira Gothic – She could be one of the Wicked Queen’s ladies in waiting.
Bat Noir – for when you want to look more sexy than scary.
Edwardian Banshee – She’d only scream in a classy haunted house.
Goth Ann – Another dark turn of a childhood favorite.
We also have things like Asajj Ventress from Star Wars, Coventina the Club Vamp, Midnight Mistress French Vamp, some Gothic Brides, an assortment of spellcasters and vampiresses and of course, classics like Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and Morticia.
