"Who am I?" That question has been pondered a lot in my past GE courses. Usually, I answer it in two-page essays. I find it easy because I already know who I am, my aesthetic and attitude in just one word: Goth. This time the question is answered through a fashion material board. No words, yet I also find it easy and very fun.
A black leather skull, with red rococo fabric eyes, chain tears, and my iconic spikes. How much Goth could it get? "It is very Kim", many would say. Who I am is indeed unique, and yet, I realize, my distinguishable style has become predictable. The spikes and skull have lost their shock factor. Or maybe my audience still expects them.
Must I verge away from Goth, or must I venture deeper into it?
