If you like Gothic music, fashion and culture then join one of us! Mwahaha! SparkPeople .:~Got Goth?~:. Team Messageboard Greetings from Massachusetts! Hi all! <BR> <BR> I'm Katie. I'm from Massachusetts, and am 27. I initially got into the goth thing in high school, and have been enamored with it sever since. I actually did a lot of work about subcultural identity for my degree project as an undergrad (with a heavy focus on goth, of course!) <BR> <BR> Due to my job, I have to tone it down most days. I still try to incorporate as much of my style as I can into my work wardrobe, to the point where a few of my students have questioned me ab... Wed, 26 Apr 2017 00:27:55 EST Anyone using MapMyRide? I am PoeDaughter7 on MapMyRide if anyone wants to add me to friends. Tue, 1 Sep 2015 17:32:44 EST Hi Sorry I haven't introduced myself yet. <BR> I'm returning to SP after a few years. I've gained a bit over 30 lbs, my blood pressure's super low, I fractured my wrist and am trying to graduate from/ transfer music schools. <BR> I've been living in L.A. the past decade, but considering moving back to Europe or somewhere completely different. Crossroads & indecisiveness... seems the best is to improve myself till I know what the "right" next step is :) <BR> Happy to add some friends to encoura...

Hi! My name is Emily, I'm 28 years old, and I'm a goth. =] I've been involved since I was an early teen, and thankfully I can still express my gothiness in my work (I teach at a community college). <BR> <BR> It's so nice to find some like minded people! ^^ <BR> <BR> Anyway, I have a ton of weight to lose, and I'm slowly making my way down that path. <BR> <BR> And, it's good to be here!

I was adamant that I would never conform when I was young but I kinda did. Took some of my piercings out, no longer have purple or green or whatever hair but still think gothic is one of the sexiest things around ;) <BR> <BR> Anyway, not sure anyone will read this as there haven't been any recent posts - what's up? <BR> <BR> <em>424</em> Tue, 20 Jan 2015 19:16:13 EST Intro Hi, I'm Jen. I'm 40, I've always been a bit of a goth girl. Never grew up. My mom said I would outgrow this " phase " when I was a teen. Never did. I'm not a "costume" goth as I can't afford the clothes, but everything I wear is black, grey, or purple. I like aggrotech, industrial, especially German and Austrian stuff, odd stuff like EDC mixes with DJ's like Knife Party, and of course the classics. But mostly listen to newer stuff now. I've lost 100#, gained back over 60#, and now I'm losing ... Mon, 17 Nov 2014 09:52:27 EST Greetings! So happy to find this little cyber cave of spooky folks here! I can't believe no one is talking about best SPFs to wear in the sunshine? I was one of the first wave of darklings to hatch way back in the early 1980's. Much to my parents' chagrin it was not a phase....I don't get to the clubs as much as I would like as of late, and here on SP to keep on track to return to best health and shape. All the while retaining my pallor! Bless! Tue, 12 Aug 2014 00:01:55 EST Hi from Missouri Hey all. Just introducing myself since I'm new. <BR> <BR> I live in mid-Missouri. We've got a tiny scene here (once a month goth/industrial night, the occasional live show), and I've only been semi-active in it over the last few years, in part because of some life things. <BR> <BR> Part of the reason I'm working on wellness/diet/exercise is that I kind of don't want to be the fat, unfortunate-looking crustygoth any more than I have to. Something about being closer to 300 than 200 lbs a... Thu, 5 Sep 2013 12:37:47 EST Using the Emoticons Daily or whatever... Use emoticons to describe how you're feeling and what you're up to. That's all. Sun, 28 Apr 2013 09:20:37 EST New to this board Hi, <BR> <BR> I have been a goth since I as 16. I'm 47 now. I love the music, but don't really look goth. No tats, no piercings. I love the music to no end. I actually turned off the tv to use the treadmill and put on Pandora and it has helped tremendously! <BR> <BR> Christ, I just saw pics of Liz Hurley at 47. Jesus. I would love to fit back into some of my awesome dresses before I get much older. And the heath aspect, as my brother has heart failure now and my dad died of a heart attack.... Tue, 23 Apr 2013 14:25:26 EST Aftercare? I know this is more about weightloss but just curious. I got my septum pierced 2 days ago. Ive had many other piercings and the aftercare was to clean twice a day. <BR> <BR> I was told by this piercer to clean my septum 5 times a day! this seems so excessive. Anyone have any advice? I have been doing it 3 times a day instead but just curious should I do the 5? Tue, 23 Apr 2013 12:23:39 EST hello there Never really labelled myself but I tend to be into the dark realm of life. <BR> <BR> I am 26 years old and a mom of 2 boys. My life is very hectic and crazy and somewhere in between it all I try to find time for me. Currently trying to lose weight to reach my goals I tend to never achieve and feel my best. Mon, 18 Mar 2013 19:55:02 EST Bats Day at Disneyland I'm not sure if anyone knows this but there is a Bats Day Fun in the Park every year at Disneyland in Anaheim. It's not an official day in Disneyland's eyes but it is coordinated through some of Southern California's Gothic DJ's and promoters. They have other events that coincide with it like costume balls and stuff and all ages are welcome. It's pretty cool. They have a Facebook page and website if anyone is interested in checking it out. This year it is in May. Fri, 15 Mar 2013 13:02:16 EST Anyone lost hoping to be found again? I don't know if anyone feels this way but since I've gained a whole bunch of weight I don't feel like myself. One of the main things that drew me to Goth in the first place was that I felt so comfortable in the scene and I could express who I was. I used to love walking around in all my beautiful clothes and letting my dark side shine. Now I just walk around in plain T-Shirts and baggy pants because I am totally not comfortable in my skin. On an almost daily basis I ask myself "where did I go... Wed, 27 Feb 2013 19:46:39 EST New to the site. Heya fellow bats, I'm new here referred by my sister. I have virtually no support and am new to all of this, so I could use all the help I can get. Look forward to getting to know you guys. Going to start exploring now. Tue, 12 Feb 2013 14:05:11 EST Guilty Pleasures! Everyone has their guilty pleasures, and I think we can all help each other be accountable for them. We can comisserate together over them, and help each other find healthy, tasty alternatives to them! My guilty pleasure is cheesecake. I can never say no to it! Mon, 21 Jan 2013 17:33:24 EST A new start, again Hi all! So, this is about my third time starting again with SparkPeople. I've changed a few things this time around, so I'm hoping something new will stick. I've lost a bit of weight since starting with SparkPeople, but not nearly as much as I should have. I love all things goth, I sew my own corsets, and have a massive boot collection. Recently I have started to lean more to steampunk. It's fantastic because it can be as goth as I want it to be (corsets, buckles, black lace, etc.) as long as... Thu, 17 Jan 2013 14:10:44 EST Any suggestions to make this a more active team I'm seeing a slip in activity on this page. I was wondering if any of the members have any ideas to liven this page up. Please let me know any ideas you may have. Thu, 11 Oct 2012 08:50:55 EST Charlotte Sometimes Finding a Goth group on here, makes me one happy Elder Goth/Rivethead. I'm 36, and have been in the scene since I was 10 years old. Got my first cure album for my 10th birthday. I appreciate the romanti-goth Aesthetic, but I am a Rivet at heart. Favorite bands are: <BR> Chameleons UK <BR> The Mission <BR> Sisters of Mercy <BR> Siouxsie Sioux <BR> Bauhaus <BR> The Cure <BR> The Smiths <BR> Depeche Mode <BR> And One <BR> Wolfsheim <BR> Peter Heppner <BR> VNV Nation <BR> Aesthetic Perfection <BR... Sat, 7 Jul 2012 08:08:26 EST Returning to Spark Hi!!! I'm just returning to Spark after a couple of years. I joined originally in 2010 after my son was born. So glad to see this team. I've been interested in the goth seen since the early 90's. Need less to say I am now fat, out of shape, and drowning in a sea of mediocrity. <em>246</em> I'm hoping I can get motivated to get out of my rut so my son can be proud of his spooky mom. <em>419</em> Sun, 3 Jun 2012 16:52:29 EST Nevermore Leonor Howdy name is Leonor and I looooove gothic and industrial music, style, and such. For instance, I just bought Suicide Commando tickets for two seperate shows and I plan to see Dead Can Dance in a few months as well. I love wearing lace, velvet, satin in black, black on black, black on black and black. I am a mother of a teenager.Other goth moms out there?

I was a Active member of sparks, and Got Goth about a year and a half ago. But do to lazyness, sickness, and injury's I fell off big time.

Tue, 15 May 2012 03:00:31 EST 2nd quarter is coming! Hey beautiful people <BR> <BR> Seeing as the first quarter of the year is almost at an end, I thought we should discuss how your lifestyle and health new years resolutions are coming on and what you will do differently in the second quarter of the year. Now is a good a time as any to reassess and evaluate, don't you think? <BR> <BR> For me personally, I got very lax in my training and I picked up those reigns this morning in the gym. I have committed to an hour workout, 6 days a week. No le... Tue, 27 Mar 2012 04:37:29 EST Just me. Hi, i'm Tara. I think goths are beautiful and creative people. I am brave enough to die my hair and I love Manic Panic. When it comes to the make up and the clothes...that's where I get self conscience. I just don't think i'm pretty enough to pull it off. But maybe I need better ideas. I'm looking for suggestion and maybe a coach or a few to help me with my goth make over. I'm getting tired of my old wardrobe so it's time to start buying new clothes anyway. <em>334</em> Sat, 24 Mar 2012 13:40:41 EST hi Hi im Sarah im from england i just joined the group im a closet goth i love the fashion x Wed, 22 Feb 2012 08:53:29 EST Hello I joined Sparkpeople about a week ago and figured it was time to finally say hello.

I'm at Spark mostly to learn how to eat healthy, deal with my allergies and health issues (hooray hypothyroid and endometriosis!) and hopefully lose weight before my rockabilly sister's wedding. <BR> I'm a pretty traditional goth, music wise - mostly Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie, Bauhaus, etc, but love stuff like Covenant and And One, too. :D <BR> Fashion wise, I'm a laid-ba... Mon, 6 Feb 2012 12:43:14 EST Hello My name is Pete. <BR> I'm really bad at introductions, but a few thing about me: <BR> I'm trying to stick to my plan and lose weight. <BR> I love listening to music, as well as making it when I have time. <BR> I'm into horror/occult type movies. <BR> I need more tattoos, no piercings, I miss my goatee. <BR> I'm very random at times. <BR> I don't know what else to say so good luck to you all hopefully we all reach our goals. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Sun, 5 Feb 2012 19:18:30 EST ::Greetings:: Greetings everyone, <BR> <BR> I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a "thirty-something" individual who recently joined this team. I've been a fan of Goth/Industrial/EBM since the early nineties. In fact, during the mid-to-late nineties, I was the vocalist/lyricist for an EBM group signed to Cleopatra/Hard records. I put my education on hold to pursue a career in electronic music. Unfortunately, the band has been broken up for many years now. I eventually changed career paths and now work as a...

Do You have one? *smiles brightly* I guess mine would be to get out and walk and take my camera along to start snapping pictures again. I let some issues with a stalker keep me from that last year and I really missed seeing so many beautiful flowers our town people has to offer. <BR> I am also going to enjoy my kids more. *LOL* If that is possible.

Sat, 20 Aug 2011 07:35:30 EST Help with a Tattoo COVERUP Alrighty, so back when I was 19, a whole whopping year and a half ago, I got a tattoo around my wrist. I rushed it because I had recently been dumped by my long-term boyfriend. I suppose I was thinking, "This will prove to him that I don't need him. I'm independent!" LOL In a way it worked, but in a much larger way it was a terrible idea. So, I'm trying to decide on a coverup on my wrist. <BR> <BR> The current tattoo is forest green script that says, "To thine own Self be true". It's fairly... Sun, 24 Jul 2011 07:51:50 EST Hi there!!

I call myself a closet goth. I love the clothing (though can't afford the pieces I really love) and art. Yet by looking at me and my home you wouldn't be able to tell. Mainly because every time I talk about buying anything goth my hubby looks at me like "are you serious." But I'm slowly taking over. <em>18</em> Fri, 13 May 2011 21:21:01 EST Allo Hi everyone!

Hiya! I'm not new to SparkPeople, I've been using the nutrition and weight trackers since late 2010, but I've just gotten involved with the message boards over the last few weeks, mostly because I can sense that my friends and family are getting a bit bored with hearing about my latest low cal tasty treat, or how many minutes I walked today and so on. That's not to say that they are not supportive, because they are some of the most supportive people a gal could ask for, I just think I shoul... Fri, 25 Feb 2011 09:16:55 EST new here! Hi!

I just joined SP a few days ago and have opted to join some teams. I'm not the most active of posters, truth be told, but have been inclined to be talkative with the right group of people. Hoping that somewhere on this site will be the motivation I need to continue my journey, and I wish everyone luck on their's as well. Mon, 24 Jan 2011 13:28:04 EST What are you currently reading?

I'm an Information Technology major at Youngstown State University and I also work full time at Denny's in Austintown, OH as a midnight waitress. <BR> <BR> As you can probably observe, being a waitress alone is enough to be surrounded by temptation. The smell of food sets your stomach to be ready to eat, so being surrounded by it for 8 hours is torture. Also, being on the late night shift, my sleeping schedule is a lot different for others,...

Sun, 20 Dec 2009 23:28:31 EST new here Greetings, <BR> <BR> Stuff: I’m a 31 years old and male. I currently weigh 185 and am 5’10”. I don’t think that I am fat but I definitely am not in shape any more. My beer belly, aka buda belly is my current nemesis. Long ago, I was on the swim team and did track. Now I get winded when I play with my 5 year old boy. I like drinking beer and eating meat. I work with computers so I am sitting at my desk most of the day. I would say that I am pretty eclectic on what I wear and the music I like.... Thu, 17 Dec 2009 15:29:53 EST Short time member - first time commentor Hello. I've been sitting back and observing for a while. Kind of diddling around with the SparkPeople thing until the last little while. <BR> <BR> Basics: I'm female, 34, married with 1 child, 16. I love industrial, dark wave, goth, and electronica music. I call myself goth, but I'm probably more of a rivethead. <BR> <BR> Fave bands: Skinny Puppy, VNV Nation, Dead Can Dance, Wumpscut, Juno Reactor with some Chopin and Pavarotti thrown in. <BR> <BR> Fave movies: Hellraiser, The Dark Knig... Tue, 15 Dec 2009 08:29:41 EST Evil Goodie Demons <BR> Don't let the evil goodie demons talk you into being naughty. Hold your ground. They are clever - those little demons - they will put the sweet smell in your nostrils and plant the idea in your head "I must have some", it's all trickery ... they love having you under their spell. You need to tell them "NO, you have no power over me" and they will blow away, like dust in a storm. The Evil Goodie Demons will be no more. <BR> <BR> I hope the Evil Goodie Demons don't find YOU this ... Mon, 14 Dec 2009 19:46:56 EST New Team Member Hi, I'm Brandy.

Tue, 8 Dec 2009 11:00:55 EST hey hi just joined Fri, 20 Nov 2009 17:01:07 EST Weight scale Does anyone know of a good weight scale to use? The scale I've been using is only 1 year old. But it's digital, and says your body fat and water percentage. I doubt those are right calculations though. heh. The scales been working fine and now for my 1 week measure in, it says I've lost 19 pounds. lol Which of course is wrong. What's a good kind of scale to use, the old one that spins? Thanks guys.

My family thinks I'm crazy especially my kids. The say I'm to old for this. I like tattoos, motorcycle rides and anything that is goth. Wed, 23 Sep 2009 09:34:36 EST Whenever Weigh Ins Well this team isn't so active as some others so here is a general weigh in topic to be used whenever you weigh in. <BR> <BR> I'm currently at 143, which is no change this week. Considering it's that time of the month, I am happy not to have gained any weight after all the extra chocolate ice cream I ate this weekend. I am also hoping that some of the weight is water retention and I might see some progress later in the week. Mon, 21 Sep 2009 12:34:37 EST Hiyas!! brandigirl here. Hello. <BR> my name is brandigirl, and my Husband and i are BDSMers.

( af... Thu, 17 Sep 2009 14:48:02 EST Hippie-Goth? Hi there. I just joined the group. The title of my post is because "hippie-goth" or "gothic hippie" was the title I was pinned with as a teen. I guess no one understood my love for both black & bell sleeves. lol <BR> <BR> Anyhow, I thought I would join because at the very least, the music is my lure into the realm known as "goth." <BR> <BR> Is anyone else in the team into industrial/EBM/aggro/etc.? Or is it all just darkwave and modern "goth" like Lacuna Coil (no worries; I like that too)... Fri, 11 Sep 2009 02:05:07 EST Curious I was wondering if anyone here knew of any goth social networking sites or forums that were visited on a regular basis?

Just wanted to introduce myself. ;) Sat, 15 Aug 2009 10:44:20 EST Hello from Tucson Hi everyone, <BR> I'm 29, and live in Tucson, Arizona. I love that there's a team for this kind of thing. ;) I guess I've always been more of an "inner-Goth", never quite brave enough to fully embrace it...except on Halloween...then i have fun! :) But I have always had an appreciation if not a secret love and admiration for people who are brave enough to! I border on it though, and I fit the bill, since i'm pasty-white, couldn't get a tan to save my life, have jet black hair, and don't l...

I'm SO NOT new to Goth, though I remember being highly insulted when I, as a DeathRock teen in the 80s, was called a Goth. Many lazy years later, the mohawk is now a sleek bob, the zombie make-up rare, and the torn fishnet trashed. Now my clothes are all elegant, tight-fitting, black, and expensive... I think I'm a goth now. Though, every once in a while, I shock my boyfriend with my latent punk-rawk ways. <BR> ... Mon, 20 Jul 2009 17:20:47 EST Sub-styles? As mentioned before, although I love many Goth clothes and general outfits, I was wondering if there are "sub-group" names. I was thinking of how many outfits are Victorian, a sort of neo-Victorian. Is that even a style? Does "Emo" fit into the Goth scene? What all is out there? Mon, 29 Jun 2009 10:26:17 EST What did you motivate today? I thought it is kind of motivating when I read why other people are motivated :) <BR> I hope you feel the same. <BR> <BR> I am motivated, because I gained since monday a pound and I want to lose it again! Wed, 24 Jun 2009 07:51:46 EST What is your favorite summer clothing outfit?? Hey Gothlings, What is your favorite summer time outfit to wear and still be cool. Right now mine is my black or grey shorts they have a floral scroll pattern on the leg and a black cami with black flip flops for casual wear. I still have to dress up for work. The temp here will be 98 today with a heat index of 105. Tue, 23 Jun 2009 11:07:13 EST June weight in Because there is no June weight in and I thought perhaps it is a little bit motivating :) for me it is allways motivating :) <BR> <BR> So my june till now XD <BR> 6/1 = 197 lb <BR> 6/8 = 196 lb <BR> 6/15 = 196.5 lb Sat, 20 Jun 2009 13:20:45 EST Yeah, I am new Hey, <BR> so I joined this team and so I thought I will introduce myself shortly.

Hi all! <BR> I'm a 19 year old girl from Germany... and... well, I'm trying to lose some weight again ^^" <BR> <BR> I've been in the goth scene ever since I turned 12, so... for quite some years now. <BR> <BR> hugs, Mi Mon, 8 Jun 2009 05:44:58 EST Hello. Nice to meet some others with an appreciation of the darker side of things... particularly art. That's what drew me to goth in the first place. <BR> <BR> Initially I got into gothic style because it was an exercise in confidence- something I've struggled with most of my life. I thought if I could work up the nerve to wear something that was as sure to turn heads as what most goths wear, I could shrug off a lot of negative attention. Does that make any kind of sense at all, or am I spouting ... Mon, 18 May 2009 19:18:25 EST Hi! I fell in love with Barnabas Collins on Dark Shadows when I was in High School, and Goth architecture and the clothing always attracted me. I go to the Noc Noc and have gargoyles all over my house. I'm on the older side of life and it was fun to do my overt Goth stage with my daughter.

Hi all! I don't know if I'm completely goth enough to be here, but I'm attracted to the style, for certain... <BR> <BR> I was in middle school in the early 80's, and had never heard or seen anything gothy. But, by the end of 6th grade I realized that, whatever popular was, I wasn't it. So, for 7th grade I decided that if they thought I was weird, they might at least leave me alone. I liked horror novels and movies anyway, so I focused on that and wrote dark poetry and song lyrics on my noteb... Sun, 3 May 2009 10:05:27 EST New to group, but over 1 year on site... Hello. <BR> Sorry, but I don't have much time to blog, chat, add things, etc. <BR> During the school year, I home school my son through an online public school curriculum (, and a little in the summer.

Tue, 11 Nov 2008 13:18:27 EST Pleased to make your Aquaintances I'm fairly new to SP but not to Goth - I've been into Gothic music and fashion since the 80's, I'm moving into Steampunk in philosophy and fashion lately, though at the moment I'm finding that nothing suits, I've outgrown my corsets and it all just looks wrong! I'm here in Spark for fitness as much as looks - after all, it's hard work clubbing all night, and I'm finding myself less and less up for that these days too. It's not just because I'm getting older, either - it's just too hard to d... Sun, 9 Nov 2008 20:49:34 EST What are you listen to right now?...

I'm 27 and not so much the goth on the outside anymore but then I don't think my job would be too impressed. <BR> I still have all my old clothes from when I was a teenager and wish I could fit back into it! But then that's why we're here right? to lose weight. <BR> Good to meet you all. Thu, 6 Nov 2008 13:58:02 EST Another Newbie Dark Greetings Everyone, <BR> I'm new to this team but not to SP.

I think thats pretty everything xD Sun, 2 Nov 2008 11:18:33 EST Tell your Halloween tales here! Nothing terribly exciting here, I walked for about a mile... unfortunately I don't have a pedometer, so I'm not sure how many steps I took or anything like that. Anyhow, I was dressed as a Dark Fairy and my kids were a Spider Princess and a Dead girl. We had lots of fun and I got to dress all goth and get smiles instead of the usual weird looks from passerby. The kids got a pretty good loot of candy, and I got a few treats for myself, as well. I'll post pictures soon. <BR> Sat, 1 Nov 2008 16:48:16 EST November Weigh- In!
