What makes a look alternative? Just ask yourself: do you see the day to day average person wearing this? No? Does it catch your eye for being different? Yes? Then it is likely alternative fashion! This category is massive.

Think you don't know what qualifies as alternative fashion? I'm here to tell you that you do! Every time you notice someone's outfit being unique and different, you have identified alternative fashion. As said in the title, this is a massive category with an infinite amount of subcategories.

You truly cannot go wrong with this. If you feel worried about posting, please know that it would take a pointed effort to be off-topic here, and unless you're posting outfits like this, you are doing it right!

BMO,

I'll say. Actually makes it a bit harder to contribute than back when I thought the theme was "goth, we're just not calling it that." Do "normal" clothes every loop back around and become rebellious again in any context? I remember punks experimenting with neckties about 15 years ago.

So Siouxsie Sioux videos aren't considered off topic now? Genuinely confused where the borders are.

In what contexts? I'm inclined to say no, but I'll need more info

Siouxsie Sioux videos

this mag is not for music, it is for fashion. the only alt things that belong here are showcases of alt fashion: clothes and makeup

Maybe a sidebar rule clarifying your stance on videos? Is this an image only magazine, or are videos allowed if the focus is fashion? Could someone post a music video while calling out "I really like the outfit X wears in the music video for Y"?

allowed if the focus is fashion.

i'm thinking no, because fashion isn't the focus, music is, it would be preferable to just screenshot the outfit in that case and reference where it is from
