If you are a fan of the Gothic fashion and i think you will have an interest in customersizing your own Gothic look. Customizing your Gothic look is a great way to stand out even in a crowd of other Goths. I will share some small tips on how to do this and you can have a reference if you are interested in this fashion topic.
About your shoelaces: Whether it be skull and crossbones or spiderwebs there are many shoelace choices to add a bit of Gothic flair to your footwear. Blood red shoelaces on a black boot are eye-catching from across a room.
About the lacing: Use a hole puncher to make room for laces down the arms of a blouse. You will need to make two holes a bit away from each other in order to cinch your top with ribbons, leather straps, or cord. Lace from top to bottom and lightly cinch and tie at the base. Give it a different look by ending the lacing at the elbow and letting the ribbons flow down to the wrist.
About your hats: Hats are extremely easy to customize by placing different items like feathers, flowers and tarot cards in the band. If your hat doesn't have much of a band you can create one by tying material around the hat base. I have beautiful scarves that I tie around the rim. I let the scarf flow down my back in some cases.
About your purse: Bags to carry your spooky items come in so many styles, shapes and colors that it will be hard to stop at just one type. Lunchboxes, Chinese food boxes, coffin boxes and velvet satchels all can add a bit of detail to your look.

A Gothic bedroom celebrates the richness of Gothic styled architecture and medieval times. Luxurious fabrics, rich wall colors and tons of accessories, a Gothic bedroom can be a stimulating escape from the stark brightness of some modern style decor.
About the walls, To achieve the popular Gothic look paint the walls a deep rich color. Black is a predominant color in Gothic clothing, but doesn't need to be reflected on the walls. Instead paint three of the walls with a deep violet or midnight blue to bring more depth to the walls. Create an accent wall by painting the fourth wall, where the bed might go, an even darker shade of blue or black.
If you're up for a little creative painting try a sponge technique with gray paint on your black or darkest wall to make a medieval stone wall look. Simply paint the wall a black or dark gray and allow to dry. With a lighter shade of stone gray build a faux stone wall by dipping a large rectangular sponge into the paint and applying in a straight line along the wall. Build the "wall" up as if you were laying bricks to the ceiling. Once dry go back into the individual bricks with another lighter shade of gray to add more dimension to the wall.
About the bedding, A Gothic bedroom should be rich and luxurious and the bed is no place to skimp. Purchase bedding in deep rich colors such as a deep midnight blue or violet. Choose a faux velvet comforter in a deep red or blue with gold trim if possible. Then add pillows and lots of them. Pile the pillows up in matching shades of the same color and with luxurious trim in gold and tassels. Heavily embroidered throw pillows and shams are great in a Gothic bedroom.
About the accessories, Gothic design means layers of accessories including richly tasseled bedside lamps, heavily draped windows and ornate picture frames. Place a few taxidermy birds on high bookshelves or on a bureau for extra interest. Candles are also a must in your Gothic bedroom, so purchase some wrought iron candle holders and a candelabra to house your white or cream colored candles. Always burn candles with supervision and safety

Do you want to be alternative and attractive when you appear in the public? If you are person who have an alternative personality and i think Alternative Gothic clothing style will be a good choice for you. I will simply introduce some methods on how to help you turn to be Gothic as the following and you can have a reference if you are interested in this clothing style.
First, applying "white" makeup. The goth look is often considered to be morbid. As a result, the pallid and deathly pale "white face" makeup look is common within the subculture. To get an unnaturally pale complexion, use theater makeup, as standard drugstores and department stores do not usually carry foundations and powders that are stark white. Apply sunblock with a high sun protection factor (SPF) when you go outdoors to avoid getting a tan, too.
Second, wearing black eyeliner. To achieve an authentic goth look, it is crucial to apply dark eyeliner, which is a staple of the style. Thick, jet black eyeliner generally does the trick. For ease of application and use, apply eye pencils as opposed to liquid eyeliners, which can get really messy and smear easily. Use liquid eyeliners only if you have a really steady hand and a lot of patience. For some additional flair, combine colors instead of just using black. One common combination is red and black. Finally, consider completing your eye makeup with a light sprinkling of glitter over your eyelids, which can provide a shimmery effect.
Third, dressing in goth style. One of the most important elements to remember with gothic fashion is to wear black. The style is heavily influenced by the decadent and dark tones of the 18th and 19th century, and as a result often has a period look. Look for clothing that has a romantic vibe. Consider emulating vintage pieces from Elizabethan, Victorian and Renaissance eras. Corsets are a key element in goth fashion, whether they are made of lace or leather. For men, pirate or poet shirts and tight pants are common options.
