In the DC comic series The Sandman, Death is both the end of life and the guider of souls. Unlike most personifications of death, like the Grim Reaper, she is a young goth woman dressed in casual clothes who also visits people as they are born.
Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette) is a forensic scientist at NCIS who specializes in ballistics, digital forensics, and DNA analysis. Despite her goth appearance and the fact that she sleeps in a coffin, she’s one of the perkiest and happiest people you’ll ever meet.
In Homestuck, Rose Lalonde is a friend of John Egbert and her role in Sburb is the Seer of Light. She wears this black Squiddle dress, which was made by Kanaya, on the Land of Light and Rain.

Lydia Deetz’s style is all but strange and unusual. She keeps it simple by dressing in all black and minimal make up. The hardest part to replicate may actually be her bangs. We can’t guarantee this look will attract a bio-exorcist but you can always try saying his name three times.
If you’re not into wearing color and you like to be the “weird girl” then Allison Reynolds’ look is the one for you.

We will leave it up to you whether or not you want to go all the way and include the dandruff.
In the web comic Homestuck, Terezi Pyrope is a member of a race of aliens from Alternia who troll the Internet. She is blind, loves dragons, and is curious about the blood color of people around her. Typical Libra.
Emily the Strange has a style that has inspired a new generation of little goth girls. She’s a mysterious character but her look is easy to achieve. It’s getting a colony of black cats to follow you around that might be the problem. Luckily you can purchase a few stuffed ones to complete your costume.
