Author’s Note: I do not own any of the items in the sets created on Polyvore. I did, however, create the sets.
With my love for the dark and spooky, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about the inspiration one can find from gothy characters.
Character #1: Morticia Addams
Morticia Inspired Outfit:
Morticia Addams, she has it all. She even says so in one of the movies. She isn’t normal by societies standards. She is, however, a kind, supporting mother; just like every mother should be. She spends time with their family and helps them when they need it. Even if you took out her “dark” side, she is left with this kind mother appearance. She and Gomez have a love that should be envied. They show their love for each other repeatedly. Sometimes Gomez over does it a bit, but Morticia loves him for just the way he is. She is an inspiration to the type of mother I hope to be if I ever become a mother, kind, loving, and supportive.
Character #2: Wednesday Addams
Wednesday Inspired Outfit:
Wednesday Addams, what is there this girl can’t do? She is independent and, like her mother, kind. Looking at the movies, one may ask why I say kind, but there is an episode from the TV show where she had to listen to a story of a dragon being killed. Granted, had this been a person, she may not have been so upset with with the story, but she has a love for these creatures that many may fear. Both she and her brother are creative. In one of the movies you see a gory skit they performed at their school. Most of the crowd did not enjoy this skit, but they didn’t care. Wednesday stands up for what she believes in. She leads rebellions, and who knows, maybe she’d lead something more. She is an inspiration to stand up for what I believe.
Character #3: Lydia Deetz
Lydia Inspired Outfit:
Lydia Deetz is the “strange and unusual” girl. She makes friends with ghosts, and cares for them as if they were still alive. This girl does anything and everything she can for them. On top of that, she has a passion for photography. This passion actually helps her to discover the ghosts in the first place. She inspires me to show a love toward different things and to keep an open mind.
Character #4: Abby Sciuto
Abby Inspired Outfit:
I saved the best for last, Abby Sciuto. Who couldn’t love her? She’s an animal lover, a woman scientist, sleeps in a coffin, and do I need to mention her wardrobe? She’s the best friend that everyone wants. She is there for everyone that needs her. Abby is the goth girl that shows we are not evil or Satan worshipers. That’s the exact opposite of Abby. Harmful? I’m not even sure she’d hurt a fly. She likes what she likes and isn’t afraid to show it. Abby is an inspiration to be myself, no matter who it is.
