Ten Alternative Youtubers I Adore

I've never been a video type of person. I've tried once or twice but writing is really my medium. That doesn't mean I don't love Youtubers, though! I get most of my makeup advice from fabulously talented Youtubers and love to connect with other Goths by watching their hauls, rants, tags, and other videos. So, here is my tribute to them! Ten alternative Youtubers I absolutely adore.


So, without further babbling on my part, let's get to my list!



Drew Disaster has one of the most infectiously likable personalities I've ever seen on Youtube, she's funny and informative and just plain sweet. She's also the person that introduced me to the Limecrime scandal (luckily before I had got around to placing an order) and has made lots of great useful fashion and makeup tutorials. Check her out for sure!



The Gothic Alice does my favorite videos for finding new stuff to watch, a lot of her recent videos have been director spotlights and movie recommendations and she has a unique and super interesting point of view.



Caligo Bastet is one of the few guys I know of who does regular Youtube videos and they're always great fun to watch. Not only are there great makeup tutorials (especially for my Goth guys out there) and Goth tags, but he's also a pretty talented musician. Check out his live cover of Haunted by Evanescence here.



Besides being a genuine and informative, Bianca (aka Drac Makens) does some of the most unique and enjoyable makeup tutorials I've ever seen on Youtube. Her Jack-O-Lantern tutorial is really fun and whenever I want inspiration for something new and colorful, but still Goth, I always look for her makeup tutorials.



If you like creepy cute, chances are you'll love Kat Loo of Hello Batty. Her style is definitely included by Fairy Kei and Lolita but nonetheless retains an element of fun spook about it and it's great to see someone who clearly has a lot of fun filming their videos. She's been pumping out a lot of videos for the Halloween season, too!




Her most famous video might be a clip of her rapping Eminem's Rap God but that's not all It's Black Friday does! She does incredible makeup tutorials, fun tags, great hauls, and offers advice about goth fashion and lifestyle. My favorite tutorial is the Trad Goth brown tutorial which is one of my favorite looks ever.



Kaz Loves Bats does a lot of hauls, tag videos, and tutorials and spices it up occasionally with fun follow-me-arounds and videos from her band Esoterik. I'm also mildly, just mildly, obsessed with the color of her hair. It looks fucking fantastic, always. If you're witchy inclined, she also does videos about her craft and some guides for newer witches.


Snowy Lowther is another cheerful and fun person who makes fantastic advice videos that drew me in and great makeup tutorials and hauls that kept me around. My favorite video she's done is probably her 80's Goth Makeup Tutorial which is the one I point everyone to who is interested in learning more about Trad Goth makeup and style.



Victoria P is definitely a new find for me as I was searching for more channels that do fun tags and the like. Her videos are down to earth, her advice (especially for other black Goth women) is great, and her style is amazing. Her hair is another color I'm completely envious of. Definitely check her out!



I'm sure she needs no introduction as she's quite famous but I didn't know ReeRee Phillips outside of her modeling for a long time, it's only recently that I found her channel but I've been absolutely hooked. She does a wide variety of makeup looks that are pretty and colorful and I loved her coffin hangers DIY video.

I'm always looking for new Youtubers to follow, who are your favorites?

Warning: kaya (toxic tears) is sweet and lovable but her bf even if he is sweet and lovable too...he's also very dirty minded (says ALOT of sex jokes)and swears ALOT so i thought i should warn you
