Sometimes I get the urge to actually try and have fashion. Or, well - not mainstream fashion, not being fashionable by conventional terms, but wearing outfits that I like, that express me and my aesthetic. I look longingly at a lot of Japanese street fashion - fruits, lolita, ega, mori. And then western goth and cybergoth/rivethead stuff. I know the amount of work I’d have to put into any type of lolita and most fruits stuff to get it to look good on me isn’t worth it, but it’s fun to flip through. Most of the others - I can work that with my bodytype (stocky and somewhat androgynous). I know I look damn good in a suit.
So it ends up being a melding of effort and money. I don’t wear the pieces I have often enough because it’s easier to just grab a t-shirt and a pair of cargo pants (yes, I dress like a teenage boy most of the time) than to figure out a nicely coordinated outfit, and wearing nice clothes means I have to be more careful to not get them dirty, and I am one of those people who wipes their hands on their shirt and manages to get food on the table and themselves no matter how careful they are. And then acquiring new things is definitely firmly on the time/money continuum. If I had the money I’d buy a pile of Cryoflesh pieces and wear them every day (because it’s not that far from ‘cargo pants and t-shirt), but I’m bad at saving. And I can sew so some things I could make myself but energy and inspiration are not strong with me.
Possibly I just need to hit up a bunch of thrift stores with amarantines and spend a weekend modding shit.
