I used to be a bit of an emo when I was 14, I used to wear all black with converse and a moody personality to match. I used to act really disinterested in everything in order to be percieved as 'mysterious', it's so painfully cringey to think about it now! XD

Nowadays I tend to favour more of a diverse aesthetic, so much so that I can't really give it a name. Although, I am really into pink things and J-Fashion, talking of J-Fashion, I did have a decora phase (the only reason I stopped it was becuase I was too scared of what others thought lol).

I take little bits of inspiration from lots of different styles and form it into my own. I take bits from 'alt' style, decora, goth, traditional Japanese dress, shironuri, 60s, gyaru, Y2K, 90s, menhera and kawaii styles.

As of now I frequent various vintage shops, a recently opened one in particular. It sells an abundance of beautiful items including vintage kimonos and yukatas which I have purchased two of. I absolutely love them and the prices are not too high either. I like to style them with more modern accessories such as hairclips, heels, unusual earrings, fake nails and belts to which I have recieved many lovely compliments when out in public. <3

I’d claim myself to be apart of the emo and goth subcultures :)

Honestly for me it is kind of messy. The best way I can describe it is if you took the most mainstream subcultures (goth, emo, punk, and grunge) and slammed them all together!

I kinda always grew up around alternative music from my mom like the smiths, the cure, and guns n roses but I didn't really get into it until 5th grade and I got into new age emo like pierce the veil, bring mr the horizon, etc. then in middle school I got really into punk and discovered more through out the years, I had my phases in-between (nu metal, screamo, black metal) but punks always stuck with me probably because of the politics and sense of community.

Hello, 

Emo Elder here. 

</3 RaWr xD 

But alas, I've retired from those beautiful days. 

I was so nostalgic for the myspace days that I've found myself here. 

Hope everyone is having a great day!

i feel like its so difficult to choose one aesthetic to describe me. i have the music taste of a trad goth but the way i dress is sooooo far off! maybe something like trashy 2000's y2k goth whore? pure raging screaming trash with a touch of pink maybe? 11 year old boy even? who knows
