#10 Fashion Icon

It's the very last week of my personal Finesmith challenge. Ten weekly instalments that have been great to see through to the end! The learning curve has been steep and I feel like I'm graduating from an intensive course. I think that I'm actually ready to take on that 10 weeks challenge Finesmith ran last year... :P 

The last theme is 'Fashion Icon'. No need of a theoretical introduction to that. There's only one possible figure on my shortlist of fashion icons, the hauntingly beautiful androgyne beau Andrej Pejic who has stunned audiences the last few years with some serious gender bending. In fact, he wears a lot of fem clothes better than women does, while no one can doubt his gender when in male.

Now, he happens to be pale and blond and I'm not... but source of inspiration is true, down to the lace catsuit.

This outfit just exploded into place, no searching, no doubting, just a wham bam. It's a red version of an outfit Pejic has posed in. The jewellery set, Finesmith's Asia, was the very last to be chosen and so because of the soft feminine look of the pieces. 'Matching' the Docs from Gos perfectly.

Yummy catsuit, Velvet Elvis "Vampire BOY" Lacy catsuit, from Faster Pussycat and scrumptiously textures red Henna Jacket from Miamai. Finally the hair, HSO388, from BooN with it's big wave down the face. All together a feast of different textures and resulting in an outfit that's great fun to travel around in.

I can hardly believe this challenge has come to the end. To be 'forced' to face a theme that might not be your favourite thing to think about and still deliver on time... even if it's only been for my own pleasure and time has been a little bit elastic. But, hey!... what are deadlines for, if not to be missed?

Now I need to figure out what to do with all this free time... any ideas?

Until next time, take care and have fun. For those who might have followed this challenge partly or fully... thank you, I hope you got something out of it, too.
