So where to start with goth grandma? Fist off neither of my grandmothers were goth, though my great-great grandmother on my mother's side was an apothecary and rumoured witch (she had the long pointy stereotypical witch noise to boot). But that's about as close as you'd get to gothy.
I however hope to be a goth grandma when I'm older. I sometimes wonder how many of my generation will keep the style and and what it may evolve into as we get older. Oddly at the ripe old age of 39 some would categorize me as an "elder goth" but I wonder what elder goth will look like when we really get to be elders at 60 or older. There are some older goths I look at as inspiration as I get older. Goth bloggers The Curious Professor Z And Victorian Kitty at Sophistique Noir Are women about my age I find inspiration from, as we as the 40 years old and plus gothic icons Adora Bat Brat and Jillian Venters. They are just a few examples of goth women who rock the style into the mature years.
I looked for pictures of women 50 and over that had a gothic style, and here's some inspiration I found.
I so would wear this.

It's not goth, but I could see it in black and maybe purple or red accents.
What about you? Do you plan to be a goth grandma/gramps when you reach your older years?
