Step 1: Buy music Buy some gothic music. Goth rock bands include Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Cure, and Bauhaus. Step 2: Dye your hair Dye your hair. Black is traditional, but any unusual color will do. Create spikes with gel if you like. Step 3: Dress in black Dress all in black to express your belief in the meaninglessness of life, to make the statement that everything eventually decays and spirals into chaos, and to signify your contempt for "pretty" colors. Tip Goth girls wear a lot of black corsets and fishnet or mesh tops. Step 4: Accessorize Accessorize to taste with silver chains and jewelry, spiked collars, black leather glovelettes, skull belt buckles, studded bootstraps, and so on. Consider getting your lip, tongue, nose, and/or an eyebrow pierced. Step 5: Wear boots Put on black military boots. Step 6: Wear makeup Cover your face in white foundation and powder. Go heavy on the black eyeliner, and finish it off with black or blood-red lipstick. Paint your nails black. Tip To learn what goth looks like, check out album covers or stop by a goth nightclub. Step 7: Read up Go to the library. Most goths are well read in philosophy, classic literature, history, religion, history, and politics. In fact, psychologists have noted that goths tend to be more intelligent and creative than the average person. Did You Know? The term "goth" was coined by the manager of Joy Division, who described the band as "gothic compared with the pop mainstream."
