Saturday is goth caption day!

I’m still trawling through my priceless little album of photos from 1990. Really every single one of them would make a SatCap. It’s incredible how fashions have changed in that time.

And so I present to you two of my friends from back in the day. Yes, they were goths. Can you tell?

Hit me with your captions for the Sisters of Mercy here. (Note – they’re not the ACTUAL Sisters of Mercy, it’s just a fairly lame joke about a gothic band which only people as old as me will get.)

  1. These goths had perfected the art of using the night sky as part of their enormous hair styles and thus were the envy of goths everywhere.

    (haha that could come straight out of one of my albums! I keep thinking about going back to black for a bit!)

  3. I was a goth!! Though a few years later… And I listened to Sisters of Mercy, and Siouxie and the Banshees. (That’s not a caption, I’m quite poor at these satcaps so just thought I’d comment)

  4. Thanks very much, everyone 🙂 Love them. There’s so much comedy value in a pair of goths!
    I wasn’t a goth, Judith, I was more of a scruffy Levellers type, but with clean hair. And I’m rubbish at captions too. Some of these ladies are masters in the art.
