Forbidden fashion for me thx 2 my parents

This blog is going to be more of a rant. 

I have been passionate about fashion since I was 11. When I was 11 I wanted to be a full goth and wear black makeup, black clothes, huge chunky boots, you name it. But my parents said that the fashion was "ugly and inappropriate" I guess it was understandable because I was too young to wear those kind of clothes. 
Then when I was 16, I fell in love with kawaii fashion. It's funny because I wanted to wear the total opposite of what I would wear back as a kid. I thought my parents would approve of this fashion, since it's uhh, a bit less extreme (?), but again they said no and made up some lame excuses like "it's too childish" or "people will judge you in the streets, you're just gonna embarrass yourself" blah blah blah. Like, I don't care??? Let people talk and ignore them. 
I fell in love with goth, alternative and emo fashion again when I was 20. My parents think that emos are depressed 24/7 and goths worship the devil and stuff like that. I educated them more about that topic but they just don't wanna have an open mind. I  just wish I could express myself with fashion. I don't see any harm in that. 
My parents have forbidden me to wear the type of fashion I previously mentioned. Fishnets for example, is something that my parents think it's sexualizing. And won't let me have a pair in my wardrobe. Chunky boots and platform shoes are ridiculous and stupid in their eyes.

This is why I want to move out of my house as soon as I graduate uni. Maybe it's gonna take a bit longer than that. Life sucks for me. At least, I am able to enjoy drawing people dressed in the fashion and clothes I would like to wear.

I love my parents and all, I just wish they could be more open minded about it.

maybe you could try starting small? maybe combat boots, adding patches to pants/jackets/bags, subtle goth jewelry, things like that? at least until you move out and can properly express yourself. either way, good luck!
