Put me on a pedestal and I’ll only disappoint you
Tell me I’m exceptional, I promise to exploit you
Give me all your money, and I’ll make some origami, honey
I think you’re a joke, but I don’t find you very funny
~ “Pedestrian at Best” by Courtney Barnett
I love this new song from Courtney Barnett, all punk and funny with a sweet touch of girly. I thought it suited this look, a lot of which I got at Thrift Shop 8.0. First, Cruella Pennell has made this fabulous dress from two different mesh templates, but she has made so much of these templates, one can hardly even think of what may have been made before. She has finitely and exquisitely textured these pieces with a pattern and leather insets. Putting the two together seems an effortless decision and pulling them together with such great texture work is ingenious. Best part? They are discounted at Thrift Shop 8.0! With these fabulous little booties from Senzati0n Domenitzo also from Thrift Shop, it’s a look that falls together.
I wanted to up the gothiness of the look without going overboard so Inka Mexicola’s beautiful skin for OMGacha combined with deep dark lips from Constance Daehlie that she is featuring at AnyBody plus Constance’s dark eyes makes a beautiful face, pale and glowing with the contrasting darkness without being chalky or dead. Kavar Cleanslate’s beautiful new ‘do for Collabor88 with a side-pulled ponytail and his fabulous new textures completes this beautiful gothy look.
