Styles I Left In The Dust:
I'm still a huge fan of punk rock music and the associated styles. I totally dig mohawks (and I'm sort of rocking one these days...) and the assortment of cliche plaid and safety pin adornments. But I just don't have the stamina to throw myself wholeheartedly into the scene or style. I DO incorporate bits and pieces of it though - combat boots, faux leather, etc.
This one takes a lot of dedication and I did make an attempt at it several years ago when I owned a pair of colorful dreadfalls. But I was terrible at makeup back then and I just can't do the super thin drawn on eyebrows. They look horrible on me. Same with colors like green, blue, or purple....mostly.
Not to mention, it's expensive.
I refuse to dye my hair black again (surprisingly dead is not a good look for me...) and I'm far too lazy for all the backcombing. I do enjoy black eye makeup, but I'm terrible at all the sharp angles created with liquid eyeliner.
That and I sort of despise fishnets unless they're on my legs.
The gorgeous flowing dresses with Renaissance era long hair is just something I could never pull off. The whole thing reminds me WAY TOO MUCH of larping gone wrong or the kind of people who frequent Ren Faires (which I can only take in small doses.) That and I'm not particularly fond of any era before that of Industrialization. Ancient Egypt excluded, of course.
