Goth fashion at Wave Gotik Treffen 2011

I haven’t yet posted properly about WGT…and there’s so much to say! In all, it was fantastic to rub shoulders with so many other alternative people…and just see a whole city taken over by goths.

I was pleased to see many many different goth subcultures represented, from deathrock to Victorian to neon Cybergoth to Horrorpunk to Steampunk to fantasy to vampires and more…. There was just so much amazing fashion and make-up that floored me every single day, and often I was too reticent to ask awesome people to stop for a photo. However, here are a few fave pics from the ones I’ve uploaded so far, as I know you all want to see pretties to inspire you! (Click on any to see it full-size).

Cyber geisha and steampunk creations at left, and an amazing costume designer from Scotland, right:

 

I met a girl with the same Louise Black corset as me, but in black – who could resist a photo?

 

A stylish steampunk couple, and a horrorpunk skeleton guy:

  

Psychobilly and deathrock – on the right is a great couple from Mexico:

  Mexican goths 

I’m seen here with Rachael from Melbourne and Satine from Denmark. Right is a Vampire Lestat type.

 

Why not sneak a few more friends’ pics in? Left is me with Sisen and G-sus, right is with Brigitte Handley of the Dark Shadows, and a dutch friend.

 

More romantic goth looks, and cyber steampunk:

 

Of course, one of my favourite groups and looks is the Deathrock look, seen magnificently here:

 

How about some looks in white, just to be different? (And spot the Takuya Angel-clad Sisen lookalike next to her; one of many)

   

…and back to black….

   

I have a lot more crowd shots, photos of the architecture of Leipzig, as well as my own outfits and partying photos, but these can wait. I haven’t had internet since I got back (save through my phone), so when I move into my new house this weekend (squee!!) I will have a LOT more to share with you.

What is your fave make-up /outfit? Are you inspired to try something similar yourself? Have you adopted new looks through attending alternative festivals? Do tell :)

  1. Welcome back to the internet! ;D

    LOVE this post so much! I’ve been slowly getting my goth back this year, and this is just total goth fash eye-candy! Hurrah!

  2. Oh. My. Word. I couldn’t stop gasping as each new set of photos scrolled onto my screen. Everyone looks amazing! I especially love the geisha in the first set of pictures. Just breathtaking.

  3. WOW the lady in the photo on the top left’s outfit is fantastic!

    I love festivals for outfit inspiration, I go to Whitby Goth Weekend and Whitby Alt Fest a lot and there are some people who wear pretty amazing things there, and this year I shall be attending my second Mera Luna Festival, ML is a bit more toned down than WGT for outfits, but there’s still some pretty cool stuff :)
