I am SO EXCITED to share this with you! I have added my very first pair of leggings to my store! I created this design for my own leggings for my Day of the Undead photoshoot coming up next month, but I've had such a positive response to them that I went searching for a way to make them available to you, too! Right now they are available in sizes XS - XL, but I have talked to the factory and they are looking into making plus sizes available, too! I will definitely make sure to let everyone know when that happens!! Are there other designs you'd love to see on leggings? Let me know in the comments and I just might make your dreams come true!
Pin-Up and Rockabilly styles have been rising in popularity. While you can certainly spend a lot of money to get the look, it isn't always necessary; chances are you've already got some pin-up worthy pieces in your closet now! Here's some helpful hints in getting them styled! And don't forget to wear cute undergarments, just in case you decide to go for that style of pictures!
I apologize for the slightly funky picture quality in the examples... I had used Polyvore when I put these together for my photoshoot group while my personal laptop was out of commission and it's not always up to my usual standards.
Are you ready to see some pin-up looks in action? These pics are some gals who sent me pics of their own easy pin-up looks! Put one of your own together and send it to me-- you just might get added here!
Here are some examples from the shoot I planned this summer for DuBois Area Fantasy Photoshoot! If you click on the big photos, it will take you to the photographer's page. If you liked this article and want to see more from me, join my mailing list and follow me on facebook!
Blade Runner is probably the quintessential cyberpunk film, but others of the mainstream sort include The Matrix Trilogy, Tron, and Dredd, as well as a plethora of anime, such as Akira, the Ghost in the Shell series, and the Appleseed films. There are tons more movies, but I simply cannot list them all, regardless of how much I have always loved them. Personally, my favorite cyberpunk author (well, one of my favorite authors period!) is Neal Stephenson. His cyberpunk works that he most renowned for are Snow Crash and The Diamond Age: or A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer. Other works of cyberpunk fiction include: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick (upon which Bladerunner is based), William Gibson's Neuromancer, and The Terminal Connection by Dan Needles.
Cyberpunk is different from Cybergoth. Cybergoth is rave and goth that has been influenced by the Cyberpunk movement. Honestly, until I started delving into this, I had no idea they were so different, however, once you take even a minute glance at them, the differences are apparent. The image on the left here is an example of Cybergoth. The right is Cyberpunk.
The clothing of Cyberpunk varies depending on the type of character you want to convey. You could belong to a very Asian-influenced culture and adopt some of their traditional modes of dress infused with tech. You could be a part of the upper class: shiny, polished, and couture. Just as people think that Steampunk has to be brown, if would seem that the thought is that Cyberpunk is black and neon. You don't need to be pigeonholed by that! Use whatever colors inspire you and fit your look. Skin-tight bodysuits are wonderful for multitudes of jobs and can incorporate electronics into their being as well. Think about the sort of character you'd like to portray in a Cyberpunk world. If you're looking for some cyberpunk apparel to include in your outfits, check out EchoDecay for some awesome ladies apparel, CyberDog for fashions for everyone, and Plastik Wrap for some amazing pieces. Artifice Clothing is wonderful for some fabulous latex pieces to include in your ensemble.
Below you can see some examples of Cyberpunk costuming. If you have your own outfit-- show me! I'd love to see your creations! It has been depressingly hard to find people in cyberpunk (although cybergoth is very popular)!
