Cyber Goths are a little more radical than some other types when it comes to fashion, and very different in music taste and general aesthetics. Unlike a Trad Goth or a Romantic Goth, these Goths love techno and industrial music )possibly bands like Rammstein, Asphyxia or Angelspit), love advanced technology (hence "Cyber" Goth), and are usually more energetic people due to their love of techno/dance music. Some believe this type evolved from Industrial music and fashion, adopting a darker theme that linked them to the Goth subculture, typical choices in music being a little too dark or morbid for the average dance fan. They're definitely unique, and a blow to the typical stereotypes that say all Goths have to be depressed and wearing only black.
A common sign of a Cyber Goth are the neon dreads, or gas masks and goggles. These Goths love to match neon colors with black, or with another color. Purple, green, pink, blue, orange, and red are typical colors that are seen in this type. A more extravagant makeup style is also common, many of these kinds of Goths like to draw patterns with eyeliner or do more detailed eyeliner on their eyes, but not always. A simpler makeup tutorial on youtube can be helpful for starters who want to get into the scene. Other parts of the fashion may include vests, corsets, fishnet, leg warmers, platform boots, leather jackets or pants, and leather chokers.
