Hello Kitty And Goth: The Sweet And The Scary In Wedding …


For all its apparent differences – one loves frilly pink, the other sully black, one is all sweet and spicy, the other all self-expression and self-awareness- Hello Kitty and Goth wedding dresses share deep similarities. For one, both are valid avenues for personal expressions of affiliation, of belonging, of character. For another, both have its own avid following in Japan and elsewhere, often combining them in one Goth ensemble. And both are sweetly scary and scarily sweet!

Hello Kitty Mania

Even you will concede that the Hello Kitty wedding dresses are both scary and sweet, sort of like marrying the styles of Baby Spice and Scary Spice to the frilliest degree imaginable. Why sweet and scary, you ask?

Well, think about this: Dresses ranging from the palest pastels to the brightest hues in all colors of the rainbow and everything else in between, primarily pinks and blues and reds. You will have the most sumptuous colors to choose from instead of the traditional white wedding dress, which is very good when you want color galore in your wedding.

The fashionably flip side is that you will be treated to rows upon rows of ruffles that looks like you are surrounded by waves of froth, ribbons and bows aplenty that feels like Christmas just landed on your dress, fabric rosettes that looks like the entire contents of the Rose Garden of the Montreal Botanical Garden in Quebec transferred, and images of that round face with button eyes and nose and no mouth staring from every available space. Too busy wedding dresses do not begin to cover it.

Still, if you are really into the whole Hello Kitty shebang, then you can always tone down the flip/frilly side and capitalize on the colorful/cute side. Apply the less is more fashion adage here!

Goth Subculture

Well, Goth is sort of sweet in many ways. Lace is sweet. Respect for individual aesthetics is sweet. Creativity is sweet. Self-dramatization is sweet. Tolerance for others is sweet. You get the sweet point.

Seriously speaking, you can have fun with Goth wedding dresses in a parallel way with Hello Kitty bridal dresses. You just swing in the opposite direction and you have Goth. Quite easy, really.

For example, where you have pastels in pinks and blues for Hello Kitty, you can have deep shades of blacks, blues and violets; where you have frilly materials like bows and ribbons, you can have hardcore materials like leather and metal studs; where you have perfectly-sewn hems and edges, you shred them to artfully Goth pieces.

But since both Hello Kitty and Goth wedding dresses go for tight-fitting bodices, the better to show off months of pre-wedding boot exercise camp, you can even combine the two elements. (One young individual with a fetish for Goth attire, tattoos and Hello Kitty has a big permanent tattoo of the Japanese cartoon character inked right smack in the middle of his forehead! No kidding)

Just buy a Hello Kitty wedding dress in the deepest blue you can find, deconstruct the whole thing to achieve a Goth look, add in Goth must-haves like leather trimmings and metal stud belts, throw in Goth makeup and you are all set to go down the aisle!

So, who says wedding dresses should be shades of white only? Definitely not the sweet and scary Hello Kitty and Goth types!
