Goth-musical Sountracks I Can’t Stop Singing

Also, I’ve posted the winner of the giveaway on my Facebook page: The Purity of Evil! 

Goth musicals aren’t quite as far and few between as one might think. Sure, the few I’ve chosen to take inspiration from are the obvious but you could take from inspiration from anything from Moulin Rouge to Cabaret. The great thing about Goth musicals is that they give inspiration from the music, the plot and the fashion all at once!

Repo! The Genetic Opera | Sweeney Todd; the Demon Barber of Fleet Street | The Rocky Horror Picture Show

When I was a younger Goth I tried to emulate Shilo’s outfits down to the smallest detail. This film was the starting influence for my own  short-lived Industrial phase. Now that I think about it why did I ever stop loving gas masks? They’re so cool! On that note Graverobber is my future husband, sorry Coen. What are your favourite Goth musicals? I probably need them in my life. How do you take inspiration from them (decor, outfits, general being)?

    I often have songs from all three of those in my head! Love, love love! When I was a kid I was a huuuuge fan of The Witch in Into The Woods, also by Sondheim!

    I can't NOT sing along to Zydrate Anatomy. I sing ALL the parts. 🙂

    I *love* Rocky Horror Show! I have always considered it as some sort of SciFi but yes sure it goes as goth stuff as well 🙂 Not sure if I take inspiration from any of my fave musicals / movies but I have a Rocky Horror Show tee ;D

    I made a blog link up, drop by and leave your link if you wish 🙂

    Little Shop of Horrors! Not so much for the goth style, but it is the most delightful black comedy about a plant that eats people. Sample quote from the sadistic dentist: "I thrill when I drill a bicuspid/ It's swell though they tell me I'm maladjusted" D: 😀

    Haha, I'm with you about style inspiration. I saw Graverobber's boots, and I just HAD to have them. My first pair of Demonias (Reaper-30). I'm not sure if they're the exact boots, but they're close enough to have made me extremely happy!

    Um I'm afraid I'm going to have to steal Graverobber from you. Sorry! 😉 Actually, he's so wonderful I'm planning on cosplaying him soon. Also, I've had Zydrate Anatomy stuck in my head for a week. A WEEK.
