Let's play a little game, shall we? I am going to look up "gothic" in the dictionary and see what I find!
Primarily an architectural style that prevailed in western Europe from the twelfth through the fifteenth centuries, characterized by pointed arches, ribbed vaults, and flying buttresses, that made it possible to create stone buildings that reached great heights.
Whoops, guess that can't be it!
A style employed in Europe during the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth centuries; also called pointed. It is characterized by the use of pointed arches and ribbed vaults, piers, and buttresses in the support of its stone construction. The style is best exemplified by the Notre Dame in Paris and the cathedrals of Amiens and Bourges.
Characterized by gloom and mystery and the grotesque.
Well that's getting closer. Let's hit the Urban Dictionary, shall we?
A stereotype encompassing whiny, pissant teenagers craving attention. Usually identified by an immense use of black, vampires, blood, and anarchy symbols.
Well... leave it to the Urban Dictionary not to hold back! The second half, at least, seems to quite characterize the term "gothic" as used by most of our submitters. It's a shame the true meaning of the word seems lost to this generation. While there are no anarchy symbols or pentagrams on this skin (thank god) it does make use of black, and that seems to be the only feature here that could possibly satisfy any description of "gothic." Most of the color seems to have been replaced with black, leaving only the metallic portions remaining. In fact there has even been some black painted opaquely onto the face, whose purpose I have not quite determined. I would have suggested eyebrow, other than the fact that it reaches quite a ways down the side of the nose. Overall I think I've had my fill of gothic skins, as none of them are very original, nor do they provide anything that hasn't already been put out in a dozen different ways.
No extras have been included with this skin: no team skins, no bot support, no NPC support. Overall if you've been dying for a black reborn, give this skin a whirl. Otherwise I do believe that it needs a little bit more than black paint to really make it a worthwhile download.
Team Support: No Bot Support: No NPC Support: No New Sounds: No
