Dress Me Up 8: Ach by Lola and L&S


Two challenges again today. First from Lola: Okay I would love to see your take on Visual Kei/JRock style either on boy ach or lovely female ach :D. Lola directed me to check out various bands, The Gazette, Malice Mizer, Buck Tick, D'espairs Ray, MUCC. I really like Mana's styles -- I follow his stuff every month in the Gothic Lolita Bible, so I thought I'd go for a Mana hair and a slightly more rocking and less Loli outfit.

Lola suggested Discord for the outfit and [][]Trap[][] for the skins -- I like both shops and don't wear their stuff enough, so it was a great excuse to dig stuff out of my inventory. The interesting thing about skins from [][]Trap[][] is that it's sometimes tough to see where the outfit ends and the skin begins! I think I look a bit like Slash from Guns 'n' Roses, and since I spent college in Jersey, this isn't an insult. :D

The bottom photo was a challenge from Hannah of L&S medieval designs. She sent me a pretty medieval dress to wear -- definitely not my usual style, but I could see people wearing it habitually on Renaissance Island. I put it on with a few of my favorite things from the past few challenges, the Love Song hair from Exile and skin from [42].
