Another tale that Goths are attracted by is Snow White. The reasons are multiple:
*The Character Of SnowWhite incarnating the stereotypical gothic look, black hair, very pale "snow white" skin, red lips.
*The Beauty of the Queen: beside being regally beautiful ,she has a raven as pet and she is also into dark magic and transforms herself into a witch.
*The fascination of the Red Apple: the queen's goal is to make Snow White suffer of Sleeping Death. She achieves this by tempting the girl to take a bite from a poisoned apple she created.
The Red Apple is a symbol of death and babylon, and we all know that goths are attracted and fascinated by death and esoterism. So this tale is ideal.
I have seen many pictures of Goth interpreting both Snow White and The Queen. In all the pictures there's the red apple. :)
Oh and some info for the make-up lovers: last year MAC released some cosmetics (eyeshadows, lipsticks, nail polish) inspired by Disney villains and of course the Queen of Snow White and the Sleeping Beauty witch could not be missing!
I saw them and tried them on and they were fantastic !! Too bad I was in a hurry and I eventually couldn't buy them T_T
