There’s a time and a place for everything

And that includes goth makeup!

And the teenager who wrote this story on Reddit’s “Am I the *******?” page asked readers if she’s out of line for wanting to go full King Diamond at a wedding.

Let’s see what she had to say…

AITA for wanting to wear my Gothic makeup at my stepmother’s wedding?

“I F(15) am going to my parents F(36) M(35) wedding in a couple of months.

My father brought up to me that I can’t wear my full-face goth makeup.

She’s not down with this.

I understand that it’s her wedding day and she wants things a specific way, but I don’t understand why I can’t wear my makeup.

My dad says it how she wants it to be for the pictures and such, and that it’s a ‘respect’ thing.

I should mention that they are very accepting of how I dress/present.

Which is why I was confused when he said that she didn’t want me to wear my makeup.

I’m not trying to get attention – that’s not my intention.


I feel comfortable with how I dress and feel ‘at home’ with my makeup.

So I sort of feel like they’re restricting that for some pictures at the wedding.

But I could be wrong. AITA?”

Here’s how people reacted on Reddit.

One reader said she’s kind of an *******.
