Our local Goth guide, Key, took us to Mystica in Alexanderplatz. This location is about to move, so check the website for the new address (there are two stores).
The store stocks cute and Western Goth goods. DJ SiSen got his PVC jumpsuit (worn in these photos) at Mystica.
A Steampunk jacket. The quality isn’t always tops, but prices are reasonable.
In any case, Berlin is not the place to buy Lolita dresses or Japanese Gothic/Visual wear. Here, you should go for old-school and deathrock clothing, such as these skeleton jackets.
Mystica had a good selection of alternative brand shoes, like TUK.
Next, we went to Savage Store. Love their cute cat logo.
I was impressed by the latex wear sold here — excellent craftsmanship and design. Clothing is also sold via their online store.
Probably the most famous Berlin Goth store is XtraX.
There’s a large selection of underground fashion, from tutu skirts to lace-up tops.
There’s something for the whole family: men, women and kids clothing, much of it casual.
XtrX has two floors and a giant section for stomper shoes, like New Rock.
Yukiro got colored contacts and a poster.
Now, let’s shop for J-pop. Hello Kitty lives near our Charlottenberg apartment in J-Store (10625 Charlottenburg, Berlin).
In addition to character goods, J-Store vends Japanese brand alt clothes, like HellCatPunks.
The store Neo Tokyo specializes in manga and anime, but also has a rack of J-clothes.
I laughed at this Yaoi.
Neo Tokyo has a rack of Japanese magazines, including Jrock and Visual Kei ones.
Look who’s in this issue of Gothic Lolita Bible!
Phew, that’s quite the tour. Remember to eat and hydrate when shopping — or you might commit harakiri!
