A good Gothic gown is hard to find.
Actually, any fantasy or period-inspired gown is a tricksy subject. Be it Goth, Faerie or Camelot, the sad fact is that most of the dresses designed for these look like costumes. And this is tacky.
Azrael's accompice did a Gothic wedding dress, available in black or white.
But in real life... it just looked like a costume.
A costume made with cheap satin.
I thought maybe it was just the way black heavy satin looked in the light...
but it wasn't.
If you google Gothic wedding you will see time and time again a bride dressed in something that she dug out of the back of the Drama wardrobe.
I believe Gothic is a style rather than a colour. Black, red and purple gowns are all well and dandy, but where is the delicate elegance of church architecture, sunset through stained glass, moonlight on roses? That to me is what gothic is.
