Trust me, I'm talking from experience here:
Appearance only matters if it matters to you.

If you have the confidence and charisma, it doesn't matter what you look like, you'll fit in.
When all the people I hung around with were 'gothing up', I was doing my thing in jeans and t-shirts. I still fitted in. I'm pretty confident that I can (and have) fit into any group without changing my appearance.

Just be open and confident, don't take yourself too seriously and if something doesn't work, move on.

In short, you don't have to look like a goth to be a goth.
You might want to work on your spelling though

I think it is one of the big problems in America (and other places in the world). I think we get hooked on so many things because of their flare and unique nature, but in the end model our life after the boring norm just to blend with the masses. What does it matter if someone wears black? If someone has an engineering degree, does it affect their performance if the man their cubicle dressed as an anime character? How about a member of the opposite sex? Abraham Lincoln? Maybe you shouldn't be covered in spiky metal objects if you are a sales rep because it may frighten customers... Really though, I think if more did things like this we could all lived alot happier. Excluding, of course, the military, and other professions where the use of a uniform is a good idea. When I was called to service and showed up to be deployed, I arrived in slacks, boots, and a red trenchcoat that was designed after the Trench Vash wears in Trigun. I don't always dress outlandishly... Only when I feel... People have made it plain and obvious that they think it rediculous and dislike it but there were also many times people have stopped and complimented either my clothing or the ability to wear such things and not care. As a soldier I understand there are certain time that we should use these freedoms, and times when it isn't plausible... My soul aches and reaches for the day when we can be what we want, whenever we want... I doubt society will awaken in my lifetime though.
