Contributory Info: Cybergoth
Cybergoth is a subculture that derives from elements of cyberpunk, goth, raver, and rivethead fashion. Unlike traditional goths, Cybergoths follow electronic dance music more often than rock.
In her book, Gothic: Dark Glamour, Valerie Steele describes cybergoth fashion:
“Today cyber goths tend to wear primarily black clothing with hints of neon colors, as well as clothing made of reflective materials and PVC, and huge platform boots. Their hair extensions or falls often incorporate a bright color and multiple piercings are typical. Goggles are often worn. Some cyber goths also wear gas masks or (in what appears to be a kind of medical fetish) shiny PVC doctors’ masks.”
Elaborate hair-pieces are typically constructed out of plastic tubing, rubber, foam, or synthetic dread locks, and are often accented with goggles.
