Creative Clothing Concoctions
« on: 16 Mar 2008, 21:50 »

As much as the Ridiculous Decadency thread, and its wavering off course, might have disgusted you, it inspired me! It made me want to see everyone in their finest thread couture (or threads Value Village) making imaginative oufits. I'm sure everyone's got an ensemble or two that they wear (or not) and think are pretty fucking neat. So, let's share and encourage vain creativity.

Here's one to get the ball rolling; I think Cyndi Lauper is to blame for this one:


DRESS

BOOTS

ACCESORIES

THE WHOLE, BLOODY SHA-BANG

I'd post a picture of me in my good shirt but for some scientifically inexplicable reason, it's covered with a great many little blood stains...

"Me In My Good Shirt" is not particularly creative anyways.
I enjoy dressing creatively but I have to wear all black six days and nights a week so it's pretty tough.
Here are some of my favourite outfits:

Also hard to be a big girl and be stylish (even more so if you're not into the whole typical big girl-style that most tv shows etc recommend). Working on it, though! One of my greatest motivations (aside from the whole feeling better-factor), is being able to buy niiice clothes.

This is about as stylish as my clothes get- jeans and a t-shirt. As you can probably tell, I don't try very hard with my clothes, I wear what's comfortable and cheap. This picture was for my roommate's web portfolio for a photo class he took; coincidentally, I wore the exact same outfit yesterday.

I am going to throw something together for this thread out of the ridiculous range of shit we have in our dress up cupboard. I expect the results to be appalling.

Okay, so maybe I was too nice before when I introduced this thread. If you're not doing something interesting, then don't post a picture. Don't be like "hey, this is me in jeans and an old tee" because the Photo Thread is for normalcy.

Mixing up 2 old pairs of jeans...
Need to sew them together, will also need to put in a gusset because they are very different size wise. Also it was the lrft leg ruined in both pairs (One from a broken sharpie the other from skateboarding) so the bigger pair is backwards.



Here they are with a belt, not full frontal or you can see my underwear  :oops:

I dig this thread, so I'm going to re-emerge from lurkage to try and break the tendency towards jeans displayed by my fellow men.

Here are some (bad) photos I've culled from friends' collections:

Me with with a green, flared, linen suit:



Shirtsleeves + purple cravat + suspenders:



Russian naval shirt + Russian army hat (my lovely girlfriend stole the hat for me from some russian band when she was well drunk):



And... me and my housie as Zombies. On a Zombie lurch:

Old picture of me, circa 2005 I think. This is what stems from $20, a handful of blotter, and a trip to goodwill.



It's unfortunate the rainbow suspenders are hidden by my jacket.

not incredibly creative, but this is what i wore yesterday:

a bit more creative take on the grey dress + black stocking combo:

Hello fashion forward QCers.

Was it as good for you as it was for me? 

Ok, pillow talk aside, I need some fashion advice.  These are some gloves that I like, but I don't know what to wear them with, which is weird, because they are rainbow and should go with everything right?

Match your clothes with a couple of colours on the gloves, yellow and green would probably be best because they're brightest.

I would say maybe a white shirt and jeans, then rainbow colored accessories, or a skirt, and if you have them, rainbow socks. But those aren't very creative ideas, I guess.  :|

Oh man guys, it is like a thread made just for me! <3

In honour of me discovering this thread I did a few little dress ups of outfits I like to wear on the odd occasion when I actually bother to leave my house.

This is pretty much what I wore when I went and saw nick cave.  I love that corset more than any other piece of clothing I own.

I am a skully princess!

I could only be bothered to do two, because you all know how I dress by now!

This one is not me (obviously) and I did not make the outfit.  but it's so cute!  A few years ago I forced the boy into modeling for a plant-themed fashion show our textiles class did at the Carnival of Flowers.  he was really unimpressed (as you can probably tell) but it's quite the awesome suit.


PS Lunchy, I want that tarten skirt.
