Trying to find who this person is from Sisters of Mercy clip, that looks like my mom!

I just found out about the The Sisters of Mercy – Lucretia My Reflection some months ago and I can't get it out of my mind.

I was shooked to notice how much this person (on the first pic attached) is similar looking to my mom (on the second pic attached). Even more so when you see my mom in real life.

That's an odd question but can anyone help me find out who is this person?

My Sister Is Trying to get into goth but…

Hi everyone, so I'm In a bit of a pickle with my relation to goth. My sister has been asking me for goth music recommendations and I've been pretty reluctant in helping her. For context we are both in our very early 30s and I have been into goth since I was 18 while my sister never cared for it, she'd even make fun of me for my personal goth appearance up until our early 20s when she finally stopped giving me backhanded comments.

Anyway she started asking me about the music last year and I kept shrugging it off. The main reason why I'm hesitant in giving her band recs is because I don't feel that she is truly interested and the reason why I think this is because ever since she started her own twitch gaming stream, she created this alt looking persona that is heavily a mix of e-girl/e-thot. In the profile from what I saw, she wears very overly sexualized clothing while trying to do darker makeup. And she posts these sexually suggestive pics on her Instagram while tagging herself as "goth" and "goththot"

I know that she's addicted to Tiktok and I feel like this is likely the reason why she started taking an interest to goth as a way to get more popularity/views since "goth" is trendy on that platform.

I've just been pretty reluctant because of the way she presents herself with this super overly sexualized aesthetic that has played a part in a certain annoying meme we're all aware of and I just feel like she's just trying to use the scene for shallow popularity and goth is something that is personally important to me and I'm tired of this gross sexualization that we goth women get and I just have a sneaking suspicion that my sister is gonna try to market herself as a "goth thot" and I don't want to help in perpetuating this stereotype Like I mentioned prior, she never once had interest in goth and would even remark on how ugly the style was (the trad style specifically) when we were younger though i know people's opinions can change but that's beside the point.

I guess I'm just wondering if I'm being unfair in not helping. I made a mental note to myself that if she can find some goth music on her own and sticks with it, I'd know if she's truly invested or if it's just for the trend and only then would I decide if I will help her or not because I'd rather not try to help someone who's interest is solely in just getting male attention which she admittedly has usually been like. I'm not saying that liking to be sexy is bad or anything but I feel like goth women deal with enough fetishization and I'd rather not encourage it. My sister isn't a bad person but goth is special to me and the music is what helped me get through my last year of high school and my college years and I hate seeing it being treated as a trend, it's the reason why I personally am not on TikTok because of that.

Trying to remember the name of a song.

Hello.
I have music in mind whose first notes make me think of gothic music, it was sung by a man, probably the one on the album cover, and I remember female moans right in the middle. But I don't remember the name anymore.
As I remember, the cover of the album was very red, and in the foreground there was a man facing the front, with black hair, in a suit, smoking a cigarette.
Anyone have any ideas ?

I (F22) am losing my mind trying to dress gothic around my parents

My parents have never been one to limit the media I intake, so from a very young age goth music (and adjacent music types) have been what I’ve listened to. Through this I made a lot of friends who fit under the alternative umbrella. I specifically remember the first time I ever came into contact with gothic fashion and that was when I was 12 on quotev (yes I was young but hey it was the 2010’s). I was immersed into creepypasta and Invader Zim when I met my first elder goth. Thankfully this person understood the boundaries between a youngster and them and they simply explained gothic fashion with an emphasis on demonias(haha). I felt as though they passed the torch to me, and I was bound to wait till I was old enough to start dressing that way and fit into the goth scene. I clung to a lot of gothic media, whether it was movies or music, and dressed the way my mom wanted me to. I was labeled a “good girl”, and that was what I was. Mind you, they thought I was weird and voiced out that my love for halloween movies and the weird whiney music I listened to was “hopefully just a phase”.

But then college came, and I had my own money and little to no parental supervision. I bought black clothing, black makeup, and started to feel like my clothes weren’t disgusting me. I didn’t realize how much I hated the way I dressed before until I had control over my wardrobe. I felt normal, relaxed, and okay. My parents were shocked when I told them, expected, but the shock has never worn off. They say “all this time I talked badly about Harley Quinn, your actually wanted to be her? Im horrified” (I wear all black so ofc that equates to Harley Quinn… somehow). It’s been a year and a half now and the comments continue. “Oh Elvira stop taking my beautiful daughter from me”

“I have to mourn the life I saw for you”

“You’ll never gain respect like this. We spent so long trying to not be like your fathers side of the family and you are just like them.” (My fathers side is just lower income and not the healthiest. Nothing to do with black clothing)

At the moment I’m unable to move out as I am taking a gap year from college due to mental and physical health problems. I am saving up for my own car, but until I can get one my parents have to drive me to work. I respect what they do for me, but their comments are draining. I feel like a monster living with two self-proclaimed “angels”. I wish to regain my sense of self confidence, but is the only way to ungoth myself again until I can go back to school? I just don’t want to go back to being under their shoe and doing only what pleases them. I’m almost 23 for christ sake. What should I do?

Goth band patches? This is my goth vest (front and back) and I’ve been searching everywhere for more black and white goth patches, including Bandcamp, websites, Etsy, eBay etc. Does anyone know of any bands that are currently selling patches that would go nicely on my vest? I’m trying to fill it up.
