Gothic' costume in the first wave of Gothic novels were deployed in a highly selective and retrospective sense to evoke characters active in bygone ages but also to stress these figures' status and roles in the sexual drama of the texts. It is often supposed that modern Goth and Gothic jewellery is predominantly derived from rings, brooches and necklaces worn in eighteenth-century and Victorian masked balls, and also from mourning brooches, rings and related accessories. The present market for Goth and Gothic toys both for children and adults is prodigiously large, with the influence of the nineteenth-century texts of Frankenstein and Dracula still being felt in this market. Halloween customs that stimulated the annual creation of home-made masks and Hollywood cinema and cinematic productions led to a new mass market for horror masks.
