A.K. Variable

I DESIGNED these. It is not cosplay! *dies*

Fashion feature style collage~

Clothing design + making + post processing -

and :iconhoukiboshi: *bottom right photo*
(thank you hasubando~sama~)

I've always wanted to make something i designed myself and slap it all together into some sort of Fashion Magazine feature page-ish collage.

This is a jacket/vest that I designed and made for myself.
It was great for experimenting zipper and buckle work.

Inspirations came from Claymore civilian clothing and Shibuya/Visual Kei style clothing and also various fantasy games and anime costumes.

The sleeves are attached at the shoulder with zippers so they can be removed when you feel hawwt, and the removed sleeves can be fastened onto our arms to make arm bands/ arm warmers /whatever you call them. xD

The naming of this inspired from Evangelion 1.0, the filmbook.....the battle stations in the city is called "Variable Tokyo 3".......

So.....*rips it off and slaps it onto self*
:P you have permission to rofl.

I hope you enjoy this as much I did making it ^^

Hello! I bought your vest years back (I'm on a new account now).
I'm planning on wearing it next month when I go to Harujuku (Don't worry-- will take plenty of pics for you to see later!).

I was reviewing how you had worn this, and I noticed you have some stuff hanging off the collar. Looks pretty interesting. What are they? Maybe I can do something similar.

Also, the white straps on the shoulders. Are they for hanging stuff off as well?
I guess what I'm asking is, is there any particular recommendations you'd have for how I should wear this in Harujuku. <3

OH hey!!!! How have you been?
I just put on some random pins and little chains on top. It's up to you really. Please feel free to decorate it however you like!!

I have no specific suggestions haha. I just wore it however I felt like on the day. :P

Have fun with it!! :) And have an epic time in Harajuku <3

I'm in the US Navy now, lol. Stationed in Japan. Looks like you're still doing as good as ever. Little bit disappointed you haven't made any more of your OWN fashion designs, though.

Thank you and I will have fun. Many many pictures. Hopefully video too!

You know what, I absolutely adore clothing like what you've designed here. You should pursue this some more! I think you may even have a bit of a niche market going here. (Are you studying design or something related to this at uni?)

I mean if I saw this in a store, I'd be pouncing all over it.
AmenoKitarou's avatar
aww thanks!
i'm sutdying something no where even close to design...this is a hobby for me...i wish i can pursue this a bit more though i really do~
