A smart person, but even a child of 2 years old can already understand the abyss of difference there is between goths and emos after reading the first part. But I'm definitely going to help you SEE it, if you still didn't get it. Let's start from the appearance. I'll pick two kids of the same age, of the same sex.
Now...how can you not see the difference??????????
First: The graciousness. Can't you see how gracious and solemn and not pretentious the pose of the goth is?
Secondly:The inspiration. The goth is clearly inspired by the music she listens to which talks about death and love, darkness, dark literature, art and history. All the emo is inspired by is how many "likes" she will get on Facebook or Netlog as soon as she posts the pic. Nothing else.
Third thing: the clothing. The emo wears the classical teenage clothing. T-shit with a skull (omg so hardcor3 <3!! -_-"), hot pink skinny jeans (like her idol Avril lavigne probably teached her), checkered belt and a Mana Sama like haircut! (too bad she has no idea of who Mana Sama is -_-"). The goth is wearing a long classy dress in black velvet, with a corset like bust, laces and webbed details, a chocker like in victorian era. Inspired by idol Morticia Addams. She looks mature.
Now let's get back to the music. Where it all starts. As I said in part 1 the music of theemos is mainly emo-core, screamo and pop-punk. Well here comes the BIG difference. Goth listen to gothic rock, gothic metal, darkwave, EBM, industrial. See?? If you listen to the genres and make a comparison you'll definitely hear the difference.
You might say: "but goths are or act depressed just like emos!! So they are alike!"
Once again. NO. Goths can be depressed, of course. But anybody can be depressed! Even your mother or your prep classmate! But one thing you'll know for sure. Goths would never lie on depression because it's not part of the "ritual" to be a goth. You don't have to be depressed to be a goth. A goth is someone who listens to the music genres listed above, that likes a kind of clothing inspired by the beauty of darkness, history and art and sex in some cases and that likes thing that are nomally considered creepy by "normal" people.That's it! Nothing more, nothing less.
And after this PLEASE!! STOP SAYING EMO AND GOTHS ARE THE SAME THING!! STOP MISTAKING US!
GothicDivine magazine was actually born on Stardoll..a web site where you can dress paperdolls, make your own clothes designs and make-up in your own style and create forums where you can meet other people. After almost 2 years of activity BallerinaDark and the most active members in GothicDivine club, decided to open up an official blog where they could gather all that has been written and share it with the world...and here it is!
