Tron Tasm

I've been living in a Tron fantasy for a few weeks in addition to my usual apocalypse one, and when I found this Egyptian ancient astronaut esque KTZ dress I couldn't resist. It's lacking the flourescent extravaganza of Tron, but it has all of the fake controls and buttons that I could ever hope for. I watched this history channel documentary about ancient aliens and perhaps their influence on ancient cultures and the high contrast of the supposed alien spacecraft technology with two dimensional artwork of Egyptian, Sumerian, and Mayan cultures is such a delicious mix and reminds me of this dress. I also feel like I'm in Giger painting. SO many good things in one dress. I also found this AMAZING Victorian chainmail purse, that I'm wearing as a necklace and my new weasel/fox/mink (?- I'm not sure it's too big to be a mink and has too many fine hairs to be a fox) friend that is grotesquely wonderful. I'm also wearing my goathair Nicholas Kirkwoods. I'm slowly moving towards pastels (too hard)- and my lavender lipstick is a nice step.IMG_2082IMG_2103IMG_2080IMG_2094IMG_2104 Alien, Giger

Make Up Forever or something, it's at Sephora. It's not technically lipstick- it's supposed to be eye creme or cheek creme but whatever. They have this awesome ice blue that I want too.

Love the lavender lipstick! I have 'British' teeth so might need to stick with my Barry M 60's pastel pink shade...
Tron-tasticness!

That dress screams Giger painting...without the obvious, umm, "references." LOL

I love it.

Amanda said...

That dress is kind of creepy, in a more 50's futurama horror flick.

there is a similarity between you and the alien... but your outfit is great!

Holy god, that dress is the embodiment of my ideal aesthetic. Where might one find something like that?

Cool dress. Reminds me of something W&LT would've done in the 90's.
