So yes, I joined the Color Brigade. Sounds ironic for a Goth girl, doesn’t it? It is, but I like a good challenge! Goths do traditionally wear mostly (if not all) black. I’m no exception; solid black always has been and always will be my favorite look. And while it’s not uncommon for Goths to add an accent color for the sake of variety, anything more than black + one accent is almost unheard of (at least in my Gothy Outfit Repertoire).
The rules of the Color Brigade dictate that at least one outfit a week must have a minimum of THREE colors. I sure hope black counts, because working with two accent colors will be strenuous enough on my dark little brain… I think I’ll be able to handle it, on work days, at least for a while…
So here is my first entry!
There are a couple of people around my office who will most likely hope that this new color experimentation is the beginning of a transformation toward normalcy for me… And I will giggle inside knowing that they are oh so wrong. My husband recently described me as “Goth at the core.” His meaning was that Goth is just the style that I am meant to be; it looks “right” on me and nothing else would fit (he’s truly perfect for me!). With that kind of support and acceptance from my soulmate, my best friend, the only person whose opinion really matters, there’s no way I’m changing a thing.
And truthfully, while playing with color is fun, it also makes me appreciate black even more.
