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."
