This week we thought it would be interesting to talk about the style of Carnival Goth. While Carnival Goth is not a Goth Subculture in the sense that it does not have much history or music surrounding it, it is a fashion of Goth many still enjoy. The style plays on carnival and circus themes with a macabre and eerie twist. The fashion has a theatrical playfulness to it, often including props such as cotton candy, a long cane, or whips. Carnival goth uses elements of clown makeup, pinstripes, colorful accents such as bright buttons and neon hair, and classic black and white overall goth color scheme.
