New Year 2013 asos outfit

Well, I’ve certainly had  time off from the interwebz over Chrissy and New Year – but here are my photos from New Year’s Eve!

I went to a fave club Black Cherry, forgoing my usual fireworks watching. It was HOT, so I wore a sleeveless River Island black bodycon dress with an exotic tribal design in gold foil front and back, from asos. (It’s still available in some sizes, at only $42.50!)

To this I added a black cowhide peplum belt – admittedly, I yoinked the idea from asos Fashion Finder, but I can’t find the blogger who posted the look. I did a quickie DIY leopard print to the shaved part of my head – not entirely successful, the print being too big and too dark, but it was eye-catching! Jewellery was minimal, being some spooky gothic earrings from Japan (a skeleton hand and zipper), skull rings also from Tokyo, and some gold Indian bangles from my trip last April. Net stockings and black platform shoes from Berjaya Times Square in KL  completed the look.

But onto the pics:

This day a year ago – DIY Leopard Print Hair

On December 8 last year I posted this DIY, and since it’s party season again, I present to you – How to get leopard print hair!

Here’s my DIY video where I show how I did the leopard print on my hair, by demonstrating on a wig.

It’s great for parties, clubs and gigs, whether punk, rockabilly, psychobilly or goth. Give it a go! It’s easy…

Did you try this in the past year?  Why not try it now?

I’d like to mention icon-tokyo, as they are a very cool brand that hardly ever gets mentioned. It has edgy gear like the outfit below:

I met the ‘icon’ bods at H.P. France ’s   Merry Go Land fashion event in Shinjuku, back in September (see my post here, and one by Alice et Peter Punk here). They were there in good company with Cannabis, Grimoire, Tarock, Wut and more. I saw and bought the blue leopard dress in the daytime, and when I went back for the night fashion show, I wore it!

Check out the icon-tokyo online shop , the icon-tokyo site, icon-tokyo twitter, or the blog (where, yes, I’m in a few early September entries).

And watch this space for the tutorial on how to do your own awesome leopard hair!
