Does you daughter have an edgy side yet still appreciate some frills and lace? Many girls Gothic costumes fit this bill. Styles include vampires, witches, and princesses of darkness. These costumes are often mysterious or exotic in style and nature and geared specifically for the young girl who isn't really into pink and purple. Long flowing dresses and dark lace in black or deep scarlet are often seen. Heavy velvet fabric in a dark or somber color, with a profusion of black lace is a mainstay in Gothic design.
A witch's cauldron that is smoking in the night and goblins afoot will lend credence to the Gothic darkness of these costume delights. The Gothic style of clothing is reminiscent of an era that was at home on a windswept English moor from long, long ago. It is full of romance and intrigue and calls to strange and scary events or dark and terrible places. Mystic secret societies that meet under the light of a full moon would likely be found wearing clothing of this sort. Accessories that go great with these costumes are black wigs or neon hair colors of purple, pink, or blue. Black lace gloves and Victorian style jewelry would also enhance the chosen outfit.
