ClaustroClothic #42: Post Apocalyptic Fashion
What was this outfit inspired by?
Now before everyone starts giving me the spew about this outfit being ripped off of a Tank Girl look, let me say that it is in fact inspired by Tank Girl. If you don’t know who that is, take your butt to a local comic book near you and get inspired! (buy the movie) I thought the signature “My mom gave me this hat” and my cybergoth (non-matching) goggles would do the trick.
I’m also very big on make believe. This outfit really got me into some crazy creative vibes. My grand-paps was a war vet so I think part of me is kinda required to have this sense of fighter in me. Growing up on the south side of Chicago, you’ve gotta have that.
On a scale of 1-10 how hard was this outfit to create?
I think it was most difficult because of the simplicity in it. I’m so used to having to layer, wrap, and pasty that this was almost effortless. With it being a more simpler look, I definitely tried to get around it every way I could, but in the end… you just can’t deny perfection.
What was the best part about this outfit?
Definitely reviving my New Rock shoes. These babies are falling to pieces after 5+ years of wearing them everywhere but I love them so much. Climbing in them was absolutely crazy but I was with every moment of them because I’m not doing a damn thing without them on.
The dress is from H&M and while I couldn’t find it on the site, I did find it on Ebay for $78. It’s leather and it’s very insulated. In the forty degree weather, my chest was absolutely warm. I loved it. Behind that, is the goggles that I bought… At Ravens and Rockers to years ago. (If you’re ever in Tampa, give them a shout. Great people, good vibes, the whole nine)
Stockings were a no brainer. Stick to what you know. I went with the stick garter and thigh high combo.
and of course my New Rock boots.
