See 40 Years Of Goth In Under Four Minutes

In just under four minutes, the "40 Years of Goth Style" videop takes viewers through the evolution of the clothing, hair and make-up styles of those seductive children of the night from 1970s punk rockers up to today's Ouija-worshipping Nu Goths. The digital short was created by Liisa Ladouceur, author of the definitive Encycyclopedia Gothica.

"I was really quite bored of seeing the headline 'Celebrity X Goes Goth' every time a model or pop star shows up on a red carpet wearing all black," says Liisa. "That's not what Goth is about. And while I'm a fan of the many different 'fashion history in two minute' videos, they all seem to showcase conventional, very mainstream beauty standards. I wanted to create something that celebrated the wilder, weirder goth girls out there, and to really show how goth style has evolved over the decades."
