A vaguely pastel goth coord from 2013!
I attended the 8th Philippine Toy Con at SM Megamall with my friend Jean last December 14 for some last minute Christmas shopping.
I realize now that this is kiiind of a bad photo. Oops.
Oh well, you can still see the clothes, though not in spectacular quality.
My peg for the day was “tumblr Twyla,” which was a sort of pastel goth and Monster High fusion. I honestly wanted to cosplay as Twyla for that day, but alas, I didn’t have the funds or the time to prepare the costume. There’s always next year I suppose!
Jean went bohemian chic, a sort of fashionable hippie? Though she eerily resembled a humanized Viperine.
See what I mean?
Even the guy at the Monster High booth thought so!
Anyway, on to my outfit!
The mint wig was essential, as it was totally Twyla. As I’ve mentioned before I love mint, and I had this wig for ages and ages and i’m just so glad to be able to put it to good use now!
Aside from my fave minty wig, I knew for sure that I wanted to wear my favorite beanie. I’ve been lusting after said beanie for months, but I bided my time until it was on sale (it was well worth the wait, I have it in blue and black teehee). I thought it would make up for the lack of indigo streaks in my mint wig.
It also isn’t all that noticeable, but i’m wearing a detachable mint-and-purple collar. I bought it second hand from one of my favorite fashion bloggers: Camille Co! It was such a great deal, a detachable and reversible collar at only 50php! Woo.
These booty shorts are actually ancient. I had them made years ago for my zombie!Stocking cosplay, but I didn’t wear them back them because they were too tight. And made of pleather.
It’s amazing to see that almost four years later they finally fit me!
I am absolutely obsessed with galaxy prints. I think I have around four pairs of galaxy leggings already, haha! These are my favorite pair.
The socks… I’ve actually had them forever. I think they used to be my mother’s, but she never wore them because of the color. Her loss I’m sure! I chose pink for an unexpected pop of color a midst all the blues, purples, mints, and blacks in my ensemble. As for the shoes, I am extremely proud of them. I bought them at a local thrift store for only 250php! A major steal considering it’s an international brand.
I threw this outfit together just the night before and I’m very fond of it. Really pissed at myself for not getting any decent and closeup shots though, ugh.
A local community and shop actually liked my outfit enough to take a photo! They even gave me a copy. Definitely one of the highlights of my day. Thanks Kawaii PH!
I’ll most probably wear this outfit again – though minus the wig – so I can get better photos. As soon as a suitable event presents itself, haha.
