20,000 Gathered For The World’s Biggest Wave – Gotik Treffen Festival
20,000 gathered for the world’s biggest Wave – Gotik Treffen Festival and this is how it looked like! The Wave-Gotik Treffen Festival first started in 1987, in Leipzig, Germany, and is now the biggest annual event for gotik, wave-gotik, goth and dark-goth enthusiasts all over the world.
Its origins date back to the German Democratic Republic, where the festival first started out as an illegal meeting where only an exclusive category of people were invited and it soon became popular and turned into the outstanding festival that it is today.
Although many of you may feel pretty creeped out right now, these people certainly enjoy themselves and this is the event where they can proudly show their costumes, tattoos, art, piercings and anomalies in public without feeling judged.
It is also a good privilege for cosplay fans to dress up as sexy goth girls, weird goth knights, vampires, and this is also the place for a lot of other fetish-themed costumes and role playing fanatics.
It’s their time to shine and let us take a look at how this year’s festival looked like!
This just gets weirder and weirder.
They seem like they’re having a good time.
Lovely, in a very weird kind of way.
Sometimes, princesses hide in the most peculiar places.
Everybody is entitled to a little harmless fun.
Somebody is really, really into horses.
People from all over the world gather for this unique festival.
Beauty is everywhere.
Originality is present everywhere.
It looks like a post-apocalyptic world.
