It’s important to energize with grody food court pizza. The cheese is cold, just like your soul.

Fast food is also good goth fuel, especially when followed by a post-meal clove cigarette.

Then it’s time to strike an ironic pose near a sunny window display. Mall goths actually hate daylight, which makes it hilarious!

Luckily, this girl is here to help! (And make sure that no one’s shoplifting wristbands.)

A cool band even makes an in-store appearance. They’ll totally pose for an ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT MIDDLE FINGER pic with you! Sick.

Afterward, you check some sweet DDR action at the arcade. STOMP ON THE GAME LIKE THE WORLD HAS STOMPED ON YOUR SPIRIT.

The thrill of a day at the mall can tire a goth out! You cope by playing dead at the mattress store. Wonder if Tempur-Pedic also does the insides of coffins?

What a day. The world may be a cold and dismal place, but at least you’ll always have the mall to turn that black-lipsticked frown upside down.
