As exemplified by day two of the Beach Goth Festival, goth isn't all about black. Attendees took the day as a chance to flash some of their most electric colors. Pink hair? Leopard-print shirts? Strawberry Shortcake dresses? The answer is yes, yes, yes. It was a Technicolor affair (with a dash of eye-liner thrown in).

Compared to day one, however, it seemed as if the festival-goers were a little bit more subdued. Perhaps it was because of the rain. Or maybe Grime's cancelation drained some of the fun from the color palette. Either way, day one was so off-the-charts that a slight reduction in amplitude wasn't a huge loss; we still saw our share of wonderfully eccentric attire.

Once again, there was a showing of extraneous accessories. Attendees brought head-dresses, inflatables and sombreros, among other things. Someone wore a skull mask to remind us that Halloween is around the corner, and another person had an alien in tow. We're not really sure what's going on here, but we hope the little guy isn't too far off from his own quasar.

As for the performers, on this day Hunny and La Femme took the time to strike a pose for us. Egyptian Lover showed us why he's the savviest man in the biz. And Reel Big Fish were being Reel Big Fish.
