A Gothic accent comes to more 1950's styles with the Gothabilly type. This type was inspired by throwing Goth traits onto the Rockabilly and Psychobilly scenes, which were combinations of rock and country, or "hillbilly" music. Thus, Goth and Rockabilly/Psychobilly came together, in music and in fashion, to create the Gothabilly. The type also links to a Goth cousin, Deathrock, since there's heavy amounts of love for horror and dark humor. Goth rock is blended with the blues and country, a less aggressive form of one of its inspirations, psychobilly. There's that old retro rock n' roll feel in Gothabilly, along with the dark and morbid tendencies that draw many people in the subculture to this type.
The average fashion includes fringe bangs, or "betty bangs" for girls, along with long tresses that have victory curls or regular curls. Pencil skirts and dresses in a variety of colors besides black, heels, and garters or fishnet are also common. Men may like Gothabilly if they still want a more masculine feel to their outfits, since ripped shirts, leather jackets, tattoos and black denim make for a more bad-ass look than some other types might offer. Little tidbits in the fashion include cards, cherries, flames, leopard or other animal prints, zombies, and polka-dots.
