1.I got a perm and cut my hip-long hair just to look like Ville Valo.
2.My father wanted to talk to me seriously (I was raised very catholic ) because he thought the heartagram is a pentagram.
3.I was so proud when I purchased my first studded belt.It is still my favorite wardrobe item.
4.Although my goth friends were hanging out at my village's cemetery,I never joined them,because I felt it was wrong to hang around there.....a matter of respect.
5.I had 4 make up items back then : A light powder,eye pencil in black,mascara and black eyeshadow.
6.My first time in a Gothic club I was having a major wardrobe malfunction: The corset's zipper exploded,because I thought I would better purchase a smaller size,so the cleavage gets pushed up.I looked like a goth-sausage.....X_X
7.I was grounded for 3 weeks because my mother saw me in the city walking around in fish-nets,which I wasn't allowed to wear.She also forced me to hand her my secret fish-net stash.Yeah well,I learned my lesson and never wore a fish net until I finally moved out.
8.At school our religious education teacher used to mock me in front of the whole class.He used to call me black hole.....It wasn't in a very mean or hurtful way.He always made us laugh big times."Oh here we go,once again the black hole has absorbed her and all that is left is darkness" I clarified that I am not a Satanist at the first lesson we had with him.
9.My first black nail polish was from a thrift store and it left ugly yellow stains on the nails: One reason more to wear it 24/7 :D
10.I had to see an Orthopedist after my first WGT (Wave Gothic Treffen) The diagnose was quite funny: Whiplash from 3 day non stop headbanging.
