because you're bored of it, what do you do?
can't really cut my hair/don't really wear glasses
Buy a new shirt.
not looking for a career in porn
doesn't everyone get bored now and then?
Just for a day or two, like.
I get myself pampered. I have my nails done all sparkly too.
and start wearing Cyberdog clothes.
Go shopping with someone you've never been shopping with before, in shops you've never entered.
and it's not even been past shoulder-length for more than three or four months.
anyway, the thread isn't really about an image change for myself, i was just wondering what people do, because everything a person likes wearing is a conscious choice, even if they wear it all the time, and so it's interesting to know how someone go about 'changing' their look...or maybe it's not interesting.
I can't remember why I decided (for example) to get rid of my curtains. Obviously the previous time I went to the barbers I thought that it was still a good idea, but then the next time? I dunno.
I do remember having a slight Damascene moment when I first laid eyes on Seth Cohen and his v-necked tops over polo shirts and horizontal stripes.
disappeared; if it reappears I'm going to look silly when it pops up next to this similar one.
Anyway, I've always wanted to buy a whole outfit/'look' off a mannequin in a shop. Just go in, point to one, and be all "I want have that. I want to be that." Then you change into it right there; walk out of the changing room; cast a long, knowing look at the mannequin; look down at yourself; nod, contented. Give your old clothes to a member of staff and ask them to be burned, all "that isn't me any more. That was.. someone else." Wipe a tear from your eye, lens flare as you exit.
Bonus points for doing this at American Apparel, because you'll probably be flouting a number of indecency laws on exiting the shop.
and Adam Buxton was saying how he'd got drenched cycling in to town on his bike, so he nipped into gap and bought a whole outfit off of a mannequin. He took a photo of it and showed us all. It was funny.
I don't even think I know what they sell in Gap. Jungle explorer outfits?
or different ways of styling your fringe (or get one if you don't have one. that's what i do and it works a bit
Nicole Kidman looks like The Mekon
she looks like michael jackson
I think that marilyninthesky has mastered how to reply in the right place yet...
It could be VILE though. Anyone ever done this? It seems scary but I'm sick to death of the whole Julian Casablancas heroin indie perosn thing. I only have it by nessecity, not choice, gr.
dont cut ur hair, get tattoo'd though you look too cute in ur profile pic for that to work
+ kissing people with lip piercings is hard work
wasnt as fun kissing her with it in
tongue ok maybe
grow my hair
shave my beard
grow my beard
find a way to make everything else in my wardrobe go with them
so I grew a beard/moustache combo, it suits me actually and has lead to more attention from females. Well, this probably isn't the only reason but I'm sure it's contributed.
I'm not suggesting you try this because you're a girl (I think).
