Gothic Fashion Bonanza at Wave Gotik Leipzig

It's one of the biggest displays of Gothic fashion in the world.  2000 20000 fans converged on Leipzig, Germany for Europe's most popular Gothic music festivals.  The most impressive spectacle of course, was the fashion on display last week.


Almost every sub-style was represented at Wave Gotik Music and Art Festival.  You had your romantics, your Renaissance and Victorian groups.  Cyber punk Goths mingled with Steampunks.  Lolitas were on board, along with new styles like Camo-Goth.   While black and red are the classic Goth palette, there many who used bright colors in their ensembles.

Actually there were about 20.000 people there, not just 2.000 ;)

@Gothified I stand corrected!

If you have any photos of our own, I would love to see them!

Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures due to technical difficulties (read: my camera broke down) :( Well, next year I'll have my next chance...

Great pics. I was planning to go to WGT this year, but it didn't work out. Perhaps 2012 will be luckier for me and I'll manage to do both Leipzig and Castle Party...?
