Describe your personal look, style or distinctions in your appearance: I am African- Japanese American, so in a sea of pale faces I think that would count as a distinction. My look tends toward more of a romantic look versus the Hot Topic cheap bondage look. I make my own jewelery. Sometimes I mix things up and add ethnic fabrics. Weird thing about my hair is that depending on what area of it you're looking at its one of these colors; black, brown, red, or white. Yep,I'm 17 and I have white hair.

Do you consider yourself gothic? Why or why not? I don't consider myself fully goth. I'm still a young'un.
How/why/when did you become freaky/gothic? lol. In eighth grade there was a girl named Jamie who would get bullied by some real bitchy chicks. Basically, I told them off and Jamie and I became friends. She ended up moving across the street from me. She slowly introduced me to Goth music and I became interested in the subculture from there.
In your opinion, what is Goth? Goth is being able to live life as yourself fully and without any guilt or doubts. Goth to me is being able to face your fears, overcome them, and make fun of them (and yourself in the process.
