Gothic Teen Costumes

Gothic Teen Costumes are popular…but when it comes to Teen Costumes, parents are usually at a loss for ideas. When they look at the popular trends, Many ask, “What is Gothic?”

The Gothic style in the current subculture usually features black or darkness, and when it comes to costumes it can be anything from vampires and witches to fallen angels and demons. Skulls are also common among Gothic fashion. You will see a skull purse as a teen costume accessory at many online costume sites.

The black rose bouquet goes beautifully with either bride outfit.

Of course, the Gothic Vampire and Vampira goes excellent together as well. The Duke of Darkness costume accompanied by the Fallen Angel also makes a great combination for couples.

That will perfectly complement this costume look, just put the stage blood on the girl’s face and the Executor’s weapon.

For any of these costume choices you will need some makeup. Goth makeup is usually a little exaggerated and dark. Light powder for your face, but very dark eye makeup, lipstick and even black nail polish. It’s quite a dark look, but it will look great with the costume you choose. Take a look at the costumes and check out the way the models are made up to see how to apply your costume make up.
