Halloween is a 365-day celebration in our home so we’re always on the lookout for the best goth clothes for kids. You know the cliche, Everyday is Halloween. Finding quality goth, horror, and Halloween-themed boy and girl t-shirts are like trying to navigate an asteroid belt in a Star Destroyer. Performing simple Google searches could send you to a completely irrelevant retailer site like Target. Believe me, it is easy to get frustrated quickly. So how do you search for this niche? Have no fear, that’s what we’re here for and we’ve already done the hard work for you. We’ve compiled a list of some of our absolute favorite gender-neutral items.

Somehow, Nightmare Before Xmas has remained popular for over 25 years. It’s renowned as Disney’s, not a Disney movie. Kids today still love it after watching just once.

When we talk about the different philosophies of goth culture, this shirt sums up most of them. Don’t worry, if you child doesn’t like white (who does?) then they can select this shirt in a different color.

Hard to believe we’re going to feature two Disney shirts in our best goth clothes for kids’ article. However, this Peter Pan shirt is awesome. Pirates can certainly be considered goth.
Vampires are forever. They’re immortal, tough to kill, and of course deadly. Some are charming, some are mean, and others are just downright beasts stalking the night. Whether it’s Anne Rice or 30 Days of Night, vampires are here to stay in goth culture.
Kids don’t really seem to be into the whole gas mask thing anymore. The 2000s fascination with WW2 fashion has kind of lost its edge, but if your child is trying for a more retro look then look no further.
Possibly more popular within punk culture, the classic spike studded bracelet is still an option for goths.

This bracelet might be the best value for you as it is a set of 4. Your child will be able to mix and match every day giving them the freedom to be more expressive with their fashion choices.
