Inspiration for WGT

I can’t believe WGT is in 2 1/2 weeks already! I’ve barely been able to think about what I will wear. Ideally I’d go for over the top gothic lolita and Victorian-ish looks, with some trad goth mixed in. Unfortunately my wardrobe and budget are not too accommodating, but a girl can dream.

Here is a somewhat random smattering of my personal style inspirations for WGT.

Marie Dauphine basically embodies all my gothic lolita goals.

Can never get enough of Penny Dreadful‘s Vanessa Ives and her fabulous wardrobe.

Black Friday is one of my continual inspirations.

As are traditional 80’s alternative styles. Trad goth outfits can be a lot more practical for clubbing too.

Hope you could find some inspiration in this post!

penny dreadful – vanessa ives inspiration

a couple of weeks ago i discovered the show penny dreadful. since then i’ve been slightly obsessed. there are so many wonderful things in that show, among which are the costumes. oh, the costumes. i would take screenshots of all of them, but netflix won’t allow me. they sparked a renewed interest in me in victorian fashion. victorian fashion was one of the goth clichés that i had moved away from, forgotten how fabulous it could be. anyway. of all the characters i think vanessa ives has the best wardrobe. here are some examples i plucked from google:

penny-dreadful-costumesagain, amazing detail on this dress. if only i could get my hands on lace like that… the contrast of the white also looks really nice.
