Since it is still music festivals season, I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite Metal Festival outfits. It is ALWAYS important to wear light clothing especially if you are a metalhead and even more so if you are a GOTHIC metalhead such as myself. Platform boots are a very essential part of our festival looks since that’s the place where you can completely reveal your true self (particularly fashion-wise) without any social judgement. Unfortunately, the summer heat poses often a problem to alternative fashion creativity. That’s why the BEST option for us metal chicks, is wearing extremely thin (mesh in my case) black dresses, and at the same time remaining creative (there’s such a wild range of alternative dresses out there). I am personally a big fan of KILLSTAR dresses as they don’t use the usual uncomfortable corsetry in their designs. I think most of you out there will agree with me in that corset dresses are EXTREMELY uncomfortable to wear at such events, they suck the fun out of them in fact. In my case, I chose this gorgeous Hockey mesh dress with a very cool statement on it and paired it with cotton black shorts & a black sports bra underneath. This way I get to wear my kick-ass DEMONIA platform sneakers without worrying about being too warm or getting my feet into mud/sand (which can be the case if I’m wearing sandals).
This year, I decided to go to a smaller festival, as I’ve been attending some huge ones for the past few years. This summer was full of concerts where I live and nearby so I’ve been attending “one-day fests” and the most exciting one will be taking place this August in Colmar – France, called “Hard Rock Session” combining some legendary headliners such as Arch Enemy, Slayer & Limp Bizkit. The even cooler thing about it is that it’s part of a wine fair! So, if any of you, dear readers, is going to this festival, let me know, this way we can meet & enjoy the concerts together! Cheers!
Gothic Metal Song of the day: Nymphetamine by Cradle of Filth.
P.S. I would also love to know which festivals you attended/are going to attend this summer!
