JAPAN PUNK CLOTHES FOR GIRLS. HARAJUKU PUNK LOLITA FASHION DESIGNS, CAMDENLOCK CLOTHING & SUGARPILL COSMETICS.
We’re getting close to the most important day of the year… Halloween! This momentous occasion called for new hair and a Japanese punk fashion photoshoot with my Scottish Fold cat, featuring the handmade knits of CamdenLock Clothing. (Look, Basil Farrow is already licking his lips for trick-or-treat candy.)
My friend Tomomi Fukada sent me this stunning knit half-sweater and leggings, which she made herself. She’s incredibly talented and hard-working; Tomomi was the stylist for Green Day on their American Idiot tour, and runs a cutting-edge Japanese punk clothing label, CamdenLock Clothing.
Punk plaid hat: Putumayo, from Closet Child
Skirt: Spider, Hong Kong Lolita brand
Fishnets: Old and abused, as they should be
Ruffle punk tank top: h.NAOTO’s Candy and Purin, from Closet Child
Tomomi’s CamdenLock leggings are ingeniously designed. Tighten and tie the string at the edge, and they’ll fit anybody. I wore them below the knee (schoolgirl-style), but they’re footless and stretch up to the top of the thighs. Her latest sweater designs, which have been featured in magazines, can be purchased here on Etsy (as well as more Japan Punk boys and girls clothing).
I got a package in the mail from Shrinkle, and screamed when I saw the latest eyeshadows from her makeup company, Sugarpill Cosmetics. Her products are vegan and cruelty-free, so my earless Farrow approves. (I spy another Evil Queen makeup tutorial video ahead…)
I lined and filled in the upper lids with OhMyGoth! Smudgeliner from Annabelle Cosmetics. I swept Sugarpill’s black sparkly Stella over the eyeliner, and under the lids. The shimmery magenta Magentric went above. I finished by dabbing white shadow under the brow and in the inner corners of my eyes.
As for my new hair color… I added cherry red streaks to the bottom layers. They’ll be more visible when I put my hair up.
Smelly cat, smelly cat… (and no, he’s not overweight according to his doctor!)
If you’re a fashion or jewelry designer and would like La Carmina to showcase your designs in an outfit post, shoot me an email here. I am very choosy about the items that I feature; I prefer to work with indie companies, and will only showcase something if I personally like it and recommend it to readers.
Wait, don’t go! I’m about to announce an Iron Fist Zombie shoes giveaway with a twist… don’t miss out on your chance to win!
Have you ever done a photoshoot with a pet? How did it go? Basil Farrow loves to pout and model…
