This look was thrown together thoughtlessly. When I saw my reflection in the mirror I thought instantly that I resembled a Pirate. If I were a Pirate Queen I imagine that my wardrobe would be composed of random scraps I had collected along my adventures. I think the mismatched patterns I’m wearing tells that story well. With this edition of Alien Aesthetic imagine that I am a Bandit Queen who has set sail with everything I own in pursuit of magick hidden within the depths of the world. Though the journey ahead is full of uncertainties it is also brimming with illumination and adventure that only the deep sea could offer.
Today’s featured Alien is Ash! on Instagram as @Eclecticbarbie. Ash’s style has many different layers of colour and expression. One of my favorite things about style is a sense of unpredictability and that is something that Ash demonstrates in a truly wicked way. in their own words,”As a multiracial, gender fluid individual I find myself navigating in a world that categorizes me as an outlier in most social spaces. Some days I can “fit in” with what I like to call my “cishet drag” look (with a wig on and a full face). But other days I can be your saturated color-wearing queer. I find that it gives me comfort to be purposefully expressive and loud with my style and I love how much control I have over my appearance through fashion and hairstyles. I am becoming more comfortable being excessively femme and sexy and I think those are my favorite looks apart from my day-to-day casual wear.”
