Muse - Siouxie Sioux

She is a real goth icon! Simple, sexy and undisputedly goth. Her eye makeup makes her look very feline, and not a cute kitty, but a very sleek predator. Her clothes, her hair and her makeup all harmonize to create a look both edgy and timelessly beautiful!

On a side note I wonder if Neil Gaiman wasn´t inspired by Siouxi when he created the sexy gothic Death (character in The Sandman)...

Sometimes I really wish my hair was black, so I could pull of this kind of gothic look... At least I have an oversized bronze anch cross like the one Death allways has... That is some consolation at least... I enjoy the irony of Death wearing a hiroglyph meaning "life". I wear my anch with my more gothic style outfits in the hope that someone will realize that I´m mimicking Death... Sadly all teenage goths these days wear anch crosses... As a Sandman fan and an ex-egyptology student I still uphold my right to wear an anch cross without beeing cliché.

  1. I love Siouxsie Sioux and Robert Smith! I have tried many times to copy her style\make up as a teenager and as an adult. Some things hunt you forever!
