Nice. You do the mainstream marvel/DC stuff or more independent comics?

Some pet-peeves/misconceptions about your style: A LOT of people assume I have no understanding of what normal is or how to dress normal for things like job interviews. I've heard SO many times, "You know you have to dress nice to get a job? Like no weird clothes..." -____-

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Oh Lip Service, an old flame. I used to really love their old classic goth clothing, with the gowns and capes. Not sure what happened over the years.

 

Yeah, I feel yeah on those comments.

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

In general I am younger so I don't have years and years of experience. I stick with combining things that are considered punk,androgyny, and random Japanese street styles. It changes day to day. I also add in random cosplay items like my survey corps jacket coming in I plan to make a more steampunk like outfit with it. Hair dye is my favorite thing ever and I am currently trying to get white hair using a lot of toner.For stores I live about 2 hours away from the village in NY so I like to go to Search and Destroy as well as Trash and Vaudeville.  

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

I want silver hair, but I have more Asian type hair that is extremely hard to color or tone correctly. So, I opt for wigs when I want to get in touch with my inner Drow. I'd kill to have silver hair though...*sigh* 

 

Attack on Titan fan eh?

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

OH MY GOSH I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS ;_____;

 

I want to try silver hair so bad but I think my skin tone is way too warm. A wig is a great idea.

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Well, a great pretty realistic looking wig brand is cyperous wigs. It's the one I'm wearing in the picture. Awesome Japanese fibers and well sought after by cosplayers, a definite recommend.

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Kind of obsessed with it to be honest. Wigs are awesome I have tons and wear them often. 

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

My white half was kept that way with a full-bleach run, then a bleach-and-toner run (lavender-toned.) Maintained pretty well between six-week applications with a tinted shampoo for platinum blondes. Time consuming but so awesome. 

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

I am trying to get a teal color out and even with three bleach applications it is still there so I have to give my hair a break for now. But I will definitely keep all of this in mind. 

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

How long you've been into alternative fashion: I got into pinup fashion about 2 years ago. I have an hourglass figure and found it difficult to fit into many of today's trends. I love vintage silhouettes - they make me feel feminine Smiley Happy
Some pet-peeves/misconceptions about your style: Well, I mostly wear jeans and tshirts because I work in a lab. If I had a choice, I'd wear dresses every single day. I guess since I rarely get to, people don't know what my style actually is.

Favorite Designers: Dior, Versace, Marchesa, Alexander McQueen, and many more; I could never afford these, so I get most of my dresses from Pin Up Girl Clothing.

Favorite Makeup Brands: Dior, Urban Decay, YSL
Favorite Perfumes/Scents: Marc Jacobs - Daisy
Ink/Piercings: Just my ears pierced. I'd never get a tattoo, but I have no problem with them. I have a huge girl-crush on Micheline Pitt, in the pic above, and she's got tons.
Zodiac: Virgo

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

That dress is so gorgeous. 

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Pinup is very curvy girl friendly.

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Sorry, what do you mean by that?  I'm half asleep so I apologize if what you said was really obvious, but I don't really understand what you're saying and if you're saying it to anyone in particular?

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Pinup accentuates and plays up on the fact that women have curves. If you notice the cut and patterns of the clothing, like the high-waisted jeans and flared out dresses that pinch just beneath the bust or at the waist. If you're busty, this style works well too and its ultra feminine. (I was replying to Jellybean and agreeing with her)

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Same figure, same taste in dresses, same problem with work. How I wish I could wear dresses to the lab....

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Wow! You look amazing! Smiley Happy

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Style: Metal/glam/pinup.
How long you've been into alternative fashion: Over a decade.
Some pet-peeves/misconceptions about your style:It annoys me when people say that I listen to 'devil music.' I just love metal/folk metal.
Favorite Designers: Kat Von D.
Favorite Makeup Brands: Kat Von D, Urban Decay, Bare Minerals.
Favorite Perfumes/Scents: Depends on my mood. I love perfume.
Ink/Piercings: I have three piercings in each ear. I want to get wings on my back.
Zodiac: Gemini.

 

 

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

You know what I find that works pretty good when people say that I listen to Devil music. "Hail Satan!" ...then I start chanting in Latin. I know it doesn't help, but I sure get a kick out of it.

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Haha.

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Yeah, gottabe a rebel you know. Smiley Wink

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

I'm putting together a list of some shops. Please feel free to contribute and introduce some new stores.

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

I'd like to suggest Stop Staring for pinup style, Dita Von Teese's Von Follies line for vintage style lingerie. If I can think of more I'll share.

 

Independent designer Sharon Ehman's brand Toxic Vision for a metal style.

 

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!
