Dress Me Up Challenge!

dressmeup

In the spirit of all the great challenges going around lately, I am posting a call to bloggers to move out of their comfort zone: the Dress me up challenge! I know that I get stuck wearing a certain set of designers for skins, shoes, jewelry, hair, and clothing, and I'd like to widen my knowledge of SL fashion. What better way to do this than ask the experts, the other people who enjoy SL fashion?

Rules:
1. Post a picture of yourself in your underpants.
2. In this post, invite your readers to suggest a particular outfit (or hair, jewelry, shoes, skin, etc.) from a designer for you to purchase and write about. (Designers, feel free to suggest items from your own line - why not, after all?) People who respond should explain why they like these items.
3. In the next few weeks, look back over the suggestion list and incorporate these ideas into your regular blogging, marking these entries with the tag "dress me up." Post in as many or few suggestions as you want. It's up to the blogger's discretion to pick which items to wear, so no complaining if they don't pick your idea, K? :D

Most of all, have fun with this! I hope it'll help me break out of my blogging routine, and I hope it'll be fun for you too. ♥

Okay guys, what should I wear? =)

Phire Zuhra said...

I think you should get something from Bijou.

Achariya Rezak said...

I look forward to seeing you guys do it!

Phire -- any outfit in particular ?

Winter Jefferson said...

All right, Achariya, lets see you bring it.

I want to see - tattoos from Psycho Kat. Shoes from Slade and Humby. Hair from the Stringer Mausoleum. And clothing from >>GothiCatz<<.

Let's see if you can make that melange into something beautiful as you usually do.

I would try the new Dark Matter skins from [42], Outfit from Ova Hauled or SN@TCH (they also have shoes), And try Detour for hair.

I can't wait to see what you try =^.^=

Belochka Shostakovich said...

BP* has some very cute gingham, button-front skirts, I'd love to see an outfit with one of those. And Ibizarre does some nice knit tops too. :)

Brandy Rasmuson said...

It's hard coming up with something for someone who wears such variety so well, but I have some general thoughts to add to your pick and choose list. :)

Some kind of glam rocker/biker look using a leather jacket from Armidi and leather pants (bonus points for silver!) from Launa Fauna. A punky outfit using the tarty party dress from Callie Cline as the base. A complete retro girly party outfit using the Talla dress from Axel. And of course some Exile hair would work lovely with all of those. ;)

Sakuradawn Lei said...

Dakota Lubitsch said...

I think you should try a skin from D-Skin or RockBerry, hair from MAU's & MeJ's and clothes from INDI Designs.

And I would really like to see Boy-Ach in eXceSs skin, hair and clothes. :)

Anonymous said...

Okay I would love to see your take on Visual Kei/JRock style either on boy ach or lovely female ach :D

Some stores to check out:
Hair: Electro Kitty, Deviant Kitties

Skins: Illuminati or [][]TRAP[][]

Outfits: Illuminati, Discord (Nightmare City)

Some bands to check out that may inspire a look: The Gazette, Malice Mizer, Buck Tick, D'espairs Ray, MUCC (umm I seem to only know of male jrocker bands lol)

I think you would love the Troika outfit at Prim & Pixel Paradise, but for this challenge, I would like to suggest

Nightshade Red from Rebel Xtravaganza
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Osaka/74/96/30

Dark Elf Skin from Fallen Gods
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Selidor/132/190/32

though - anything from Rebel Xtravaganza and Fallen Gods would be great in that I think you would like it; it would fit seamlessly into your wardrobe for mixing and matching.

I think the outfit I suggested comes with boots, but if not, I really like the boots at fiveminutesafter. It does not come with a hat, but styling a hat with horns, I think you are more likely to know what hat would work. I do think a hat would add to it and I have seen you wear some that would work just fine without buying anything extra.

If you don't go for the Fallen Gods skins, you might like the Demon skin from H&M - creator is hatchy mills

Mourna Biziou said...

Oh fun!

Lets see Ach in silks! ;D

TheDiva Rockin said...

Cute Undies!! :)

Lokum Shilova said...

I love Achariya's style but I think its kinda fun to see her in such a different look. I am thinking Cake long hair, Ce Cubic effect ensemble any , Maiterya boots, paper couture jewellery and the skin I keep seeing these Soda skins any of that. They look adorable.

Achariya Rezak said...

Wow, thank you for more comments, guys! It's going to be so much fun to dress up !

Candy Flanagan said...

I tried to think of something, but our styles are just too similiar. Not even the most exotic, random suggestions I could think of were acceptable - you've tried it all and rocked it! XD

Ana Lutetia said...

ok ok ok ok
I am doing it too
*feels the peer pressure*

Ana Lutetia said...

..thinks about Dutch Touch or MG fashion for clothes, AuMa or Truth for boots and ETD (still on sale) for hair.

And... a cute girlie dress from KA Designs by Kira Ahn.

Ashia Tomsen said...

I'm so late, but I'd like to see boy Ach in Black Canary, with a really androg skin and boy heels ala prince. Hmm, for girl Ach....what is there that hasn't been done with amazing flair by you? I'd like to see you in traditional japanese. Kimono, obi, full hair with ornaments and of course the skin. Tokyo Rose do the most amazing geisha skins I've ever seen, although very expensive. But you can get alot of geisha skins for free or cheap, AK does one for 150 and I think Teagan or Laynie have a dollarbie one. Failing that I can make you one myself!!

Tristan Micheline said...

how about
a skin from skinny dip...
some shoes from A&D..
some leggings from fishy strawberry..
philotic energy hair....
piercings from genesha..
ink from garden of nu...
flirt jewelry...
top/jacket from SLink..
pants/skirt from MALT
that should be a fun mix :-)
I'm sure you'll pull it off wonderfully

Arcadia Nightfire said...

How about some hair from Deviant Kitties and some clothes from GothiCatz? Maybe some accessories from Urban Dare as well.

Elora said...

Why not somethink ethnic? Little fish qipao or some afro hair from bp?

Felicity Blumenthal said...

Okay...here I come with my 2 cents! =) Sorry I am so late...

a great dress from hmmm Axel? That'd be fun! Hair from JE Republic?

Okay....can't think of anything else! Can't wait to see all the looks!

Anonymous said...

hehe I just joined up too. I hope I'm not too late! *^_^*

I would suggest clothes from Rebel Xtravaganza

Hair from C + C

Shoes from First Flower

Accessories from Schadenfreude

:-)

Liana Arai said...

I've loved seeing all the different looks you've come up with!

My suggestion is dress from Icing, hair from Ingenue and shoes from either Periquita or Kookie. Skin choice I will leave up to you :)

Charlemagne said...

One suggestion, if you get the chance: Ookami Ningen and Zero Style Hairs

fayne said...

Hi Achariya: would love to see you in some pieces from Lookr: we've got a good selection of casual wear, with jackets, shirts, tops and various accessories to deck out in. We'd love to see what you can come up with!

London Spengler said...

So many submissions and styles! But what about a gown?

If you have any strength left after so many challenges, I think I would like to see you in a very sober one, like Nicky Ree's Constelation Grace Gold. You may choose any other but the conditions are no frills, clear tones and long gloves.

Ah, yes, you can also get a little updo for it... See what happens? You teach me a word and I go and use it against you *smiles widely and waves*.

Candy Lemmon said...

So, you're on number 15 and I have yet to finish our first round, but I finally thought of a look I'd like to see on you!

Your post of Felicity's look reminded me how much I love to see you wear hats! Pick something from Chapeau Tres Mignon that is utterly whimsical, and marry it with dreamy, romantic gown. I see something white, with enough ruffles and lace for a Shoujo manga. Annnd, some super sexy boots like the ones from J's or Bax.
