    I may not be good at much today, but I am good at developing hecka cute new summer looks, featuring a top I held onto through 3+ closet purges bc I just knew it would be perfect if I could figure out how I wanted to use it!

    Also I'm borrowing some of Kai's new perfume so I even smell like my aesthetic and it makes me ridiculously happy

    Hi kintsugi fashion icons, have any of you got some tips on how to toe the line between looking like a butch who lives in a forest&eats moss for breakfast and a flamboyant gay dude who is into dresses sometimes? I know it's very specific but my gender is confusing and horrible and it demands floral skirts and shiny things while still looking as androgynous as possible.
    I keep thinking about shaving my head again because the shaved head+long flowy dress/skirt+combat boots is a heavenly look, but... I look best with middle-length hair... and I spent so much time caring for it to regrow what's fallen out... and short hair exposes my weak chin which I kinda hate :x But shaved head might be the only way to allow myself to wear skirts and dresses and even makeup sometimes if I feel like it. What do?

    Shaved head and then a wig for days when you want Hair? It's something I'm sort of considering also.

    YEah i definitely recommend wigs for instant changes and such! if you're into diy-ing and such like there's also the possibility to like wear seriously oversized jackets or button up shirts/flannels as offshoulder dresses belted about the waist, with like a band t shirt underneath and skinny/ripped jeans? Idk how into punk and j-punk you are in general. basically all clothes end up sort of dresses if you just buy them big enough and wear them weirdly
    There's also flowy-ish skirt cuts than can read as masc/androgynous if you're into a sort of fantasy-y aesthetic. Skirts with two big slashes for walking in them above either leg, especially if the slashes are embellished in such a way that they look sturdy/enforced/like they could lace back up will probably work, as do skirts that are more a sort of half-skirt situation that covers the back/one side

    Basically if it looks like a Final Fantasy Main Dude could wear it it'll probably be fine :P

    When I was a smaller Kit I'd dress up my femme swish-skirt outfits with chunky boots and an oversized green-khaki jacket. I kept my hair chin length, which hit "vaguely androgynous" enough for my purposes. Idk if that look would work for me right now... At this point in my life I get the flexible hairstyle Itch scratched by having an undercut that disappears when I wear my hair down, and am working on mermaid-long hair on the top half of my skull.

    Also, today's look - rainy-day sweetness with only a bit of effort towards my appearance to add momentum to the "have energy for creativity" vibes

    IMG_20190425_184828180.jpg

    • Blue maybelline snapscara
    • "soft rose" kleancolor lipstick
    • "flexitarian" colourpop super shock cheek highlighter
    • Blue floral t-shirt dress
    • Black cotton/bamboo cardigan (way smarter for dyeing than the cream one, past self)
    • BPAL "Dwarf" perfume, which @Anomal(eee) is enchanting to give off vibes of vigor, industriousness, and kinship

    BTW I brought a load of nicer clothes to my new place and I'm so excited to Do Fashion!!! I got a comfy maxi blue skirt (WITH POCKETS) and some floral dresses but I gotta wait for my just ordered thigh bands to come because chafing is a pain
    Also I've been thinking about buying a lipstick the same color as my eyelids because they naturally look like they're covered in golden-brownish glossy eyeshadow (and having "nude" lips would probably help with the androgynous look I suppose? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯). As seen here:
    IMG_20190105_150048.jpg
    Anyone got any suggestions for the color/lipstick to look for (preferably available in Poland)?

    Whaaaat. I've been trying to get that exact color/shade on my own lids for several years now. I'm actually kinda jealous.

    It's actually a problem for a lot of people because having lids like these makes you look kinda tired but I'm like hey, free eyeshadow lmao. And my aesthetic is already "something that crawled out from a hole in a swamp" so it fits perfectly :D
    I think a light brown "nude" shadow + a bit of a glossy gold-ish lip balm would mimic that look pretty well? I can't into makeup but I'm curious if that would work.

    I'd be careful with eyeshadow, not all are lipsafe?
    it depends if you want a glossy/satiny/matte finish. Matte finish is easiest, there's a TON of matte nude liquid lipsticks out there, gloss and satin finish is something i don't fuck with a lot bc I prefer a flat matte look. Depending on how the undertone works out on your skin, Jeffree Star's velour liquid lipsticks in "Can't Relate", "Mannequin" or "Celebrity Skin" might work? Can't Relate has the most apricot-y warm undertones of the three

    Oh yeah, absolutely! It does sound a bit unclear but I've been talking about how to mimic the look of my lids :D As for lipstick I love the matte look as well! "Mannequin" is the closest to the color I need, I think, but the other two look lovely as well.

    Shiro cosmetics has a wide selection of eyeshadows that can be turned into custom lipglosses at a relatively small price, and I really like their gloss formula. You can set flavor and opacity levels, so it might be a good option
