Teddy Girl

Work is over now it is time to have fun. And to look good to be able to compete with the look of the Teddy boys
playing with the subcultures blogger challenge 3
When reading about the Subcultures blogger challenge i wanted to take part in it. And i hoped not to get the teddy boy theme. But of course i got it and so i had to read a bit about that youth culture of the 1950s. I did not want to adopt the look of the teddy boys but luckily i found a great fashion blog, calivintage, which had an entry about teddy girls. From the pictures there i liked this one best. The facial expression of that woman is just amazing in my opinion and the composition of the picture with her in the front standing cool and all the guys in the background is great. Im kind of sure that she knew how to tell all those boys to get her cigarettes or not to pester her younger siblings.
So i decided to combine a coat with two lines of buttons with rolled up jeans, pointy flat shoes and a handbag. On those pictures most of the girls wear scarfs i choosed to take a necklace from icing. The cigarette holder comes also from icing.
Choosing the hair took a lot of time and i have to admit i had help from Paco from 22769. I spend some time showing him what kind of hair i got in my inventory. With this short hair which is or has been a freebie from clawtooth he finally was content and so i decided to pick it for the pictures.
I really like this look and this blogger challenge is an awesome idea in my opinion, as it is always great to discover something new (ahm i discovered something old and found out that i like it thats also great).
