It's been a minute since an uchuu-kei thread!
Post uchuu or space-inspired jfashion, links to appropriate clothing finds, etc.
Any new inspiration?
Have you come up with a cute coord?
MY BODY'S BEEN READY SINCE THE ORIGINAL IN SUMMER.
>posted every thread
I think it's okay, we're looking for inspo.
Yeah I remember they said that in that one video, but I just wanted something similar in white or the color scheme she has or in pastels. I don't know the keywords to search on aliexpress other than parka
Anyone in the Facebook group?
What are your opinions on this girl's outfits? I just really don't feel the uchuu-kei vibe very much.
What's the fb group name?
I wish I could find those boots in my size, along with ANY holographic shoe pretty much for the winter. Size 11 is the death size, it's like you'll never find cute shoes for j-fash ever again.
also, I'm not posting them to tear her apart or be mean
I'm more wondering if this is what others see uchuu-kei evolving into. I still see more of a metallic retro futuristic thing, but maybe everyone is on another page.
Just discuss thoughts politely, please.
i agree with you, but it's probably harder to find main pieces for something like that. not to mention the coolest futuristic stuff seems to be really pricey...
i think the girl in your pics just did what she could with what she could find (or buy)
Ugh I'm almost buying these boots, someone please stop me.
I own these shoes. they're so awesome, they have loads of different colour settings and even a strobe setting. I can't wait to put an outfit together for them. the only annoying thing is when i wear them out as normal shoes, and i trip and one turns on.
Do those shoes run big? I'm looking for big clunky platform sneakers that run to size 11 and I've looked for hours and I haven't found any good ones.
Also is that nasa iron on or no?
Hope you don't mind a collage. My friend's coord is pretty much identical, but with a long green wig, sleeveless dress, and green accessories. We also have some silly little water guns.
I'm thinking about switching up my tights for black ones and putting on a black jacket because I'm worried its going to be cold and I'm a little self conscious about my arms orz
Here anon! <3
You can custom order pretty much anything in her shop in any material, that's the flashbulb and it's gorgeous in person!
I bought four of them, they're going to go next to our lil pom pom antennas. The lady was super nice because I couldn't order 4 at once, she updated the listing for me.
I actually wasn't able to get the backpacks, forgot to remove them from the collage.
The ebay seller approached me and told me that it was returned to them, so I'm like aw that sucks alright sure. But then the tracking kept updating two weeks later, bouncing from California to Texas to eventually an attempted delivery to me in FL, then immediately sent back to China. Weirdest mail experience, but no harm no foul I guess.
Honestly I'm very eh about the shoes with the colored tights but it's the best I can do right now, I got them for $15 on amazon.
And yeah I mean it can't be a fashion unless people try right? I'm really digging >>8755695 and >>8755686, I want more people to jump on it.
Pink is out of stock, but here's some other listings
(I'm so mad the rabbit one wasn't there when I got mine)
The shoes are too bright for the tights and she's mixing two different interpretations of the fashion. It probably looks better in natural light, but if she'd stuck to pastels or gone for only neons it'd look more coherent.
I don't know what the necklace is, but if it looked more futuristic it'd neaten things up a bit. Opalite crystals are cheap as shit and work really well with the fashion.
I would just say wear stuff with cute alien motifs...
There is also this japanese mascot series named Omochi Alien (5yo alien girl made from mochi), there are tons of products of it.
Couldnt find those exact ones, but heres some i found while searching
The pink and blue one looks like it might just be little gem things stuck onto ones like these:
I like these ones
Anyone have a sauce for this jacket? It was on ebay but not anymore.
I found this jacket while looking for uchuu-kei stuff, its not really right but i just love it so much i had to share it:
Smart-casual uchuu-kei, perhaps
...can you tell i like white shoes?
Wishlist stuff, I don't own any of it (yet)
Thanks! I kind of want that campy feel like old sci-fi films from the 60s-80s, you know? Like Galaxina, Barbarella and stuff like that. Here's the shoes:
Not sure how warm it'll be, but here you go!
If anyone ends up getting this stuff it would be great if you could do a review!
NASA is iron on:
If you mean the Max Star ones then I'd suggest half a size up. I had a pair a couple of years ago. I'm between sizes and got the smaller one, took forever to break in and I got blisters for weeks. They lasted me longer than actual converse though.
I just ordered the necklace! I'm tempted by the earring but sadly I'm usually allergic to cheap earrings. May end up getting a pair and seeing if i can switch the studs though
I dont know if they have a proper name, but they look like those pyramid stud things (you can find them searching 'pyramid studs'). Usually though they have those claw/grip things to fix them on, whereas those dont seem to
What are some holographic totes that don't suck? Reviews on these are usually terrible
person who put together that outfit
they come in mens sizes and female sizes.
I have big ass feet, and keep in mind these shoes are from china so they go pretty small.
I am a size 9.5 and had to order the mens shoes. mine came fully charged!
This makes me super glad desu
I might post my space outfit later, I'm still missing my backpack though.
Some inspo til then. Theres a japanese company that makes the most adorable satellite earrings.
Forgot to add the link, eeh
Think biker style pants with the ribbed things would look good with this, aswell.
Also has anyone got their hands on that light up Bodyline petti? I'm really curious about it.
The leopard print with the keyhole top makes her look like a hooker from the early 90's, and the blue doesn't match the rest of the outfit at all. A lavender astronaut jacket would have worked better and she should think about styling her hair differently.
sketchers has a new shoe that lets you play simon on the sides with the buttons. They are called game kicks and I only wish they came in the form of hightops
there are these but probably a hard fit for uchuu
Don't think so, they still didn't put it on the international site while it has been so long already.
Predatorrat did some collab with the brand Hatra and the result is this hoodie jacket. Funny thing is that they are $230 each and sold out within minutes.
More kpop videos with uchuu kei inspiration
http://tsurutatsu.theshop.jp/ makes some cute space goods.
Someone was looking for a white kanken in a earlier thread but mentioned they were sold out because limited edition or something. I you're still here I have a link for you.
Wasnt sure which ones you meant, so here's all white furry boots!
TeddyLoid has a lot of music that I think is kinda uchuu
Can't really find them on youtube though, I only listen to them on spotify
My favorites are (not counting the song I linked) Link Link, Ameno Tajikarao, Dna Rhapsody, Neo Stargate and Dreamer's High
I probably cant find them on youtube since they're probably named in kanji, and I'm too lazy to go through all of the songs to try to find them
No, it's Photoshop.
THIS is makeup.
Person who posted the first photo here
When compared to the other pic it's pretty obvious that photoshop was used for blending colors and smoothing lines, and just generally making it look more realistic.
However, I still think the pic I posted is really cool, even if it's photoshopped, and it's nice inspo imo, and that's why I posted it
Seems like the artists plans a lot more already for the next year.
You have to wash it regularly but carefully. Mine arrived really dirty, and I thought it was just the mail, but it collects dust like a swiffer.
how could i go about making a helmet like this? is there anywhere where they sell cheap plastic fishbowls? i feel like that could be my best bet for making something like this
Any britbongs/ anyone who has an Accessorize in their country, these bags are on sale. I got both.
Here you go!
unfortunately the listing for the set of 6 little badges/pins was removed and i couldnt find an equivalent, sorry
Email is in pic. Second hand sites excite me a lot. You're a gem, anon.
anon are you from a certain northeastern European country?
does anyone have any links to reasonably cheap and cute galaxy dresses? I'd like to pay around $40 or less, and I'd like it to be around knee length.
I'm interested in skirts too, especially if anyone has any that aren't made from the stretchy synthetic 'skater dress' fabric
maaaybe but I'm kinda doubting it. do you use tiivik as your nick elsewhere? I used to know a guy (I think) from the middle of the country with that nick, but I mostly just recognised my language
if you're into lolita as well then I can probably guess who you are, but that one's not really a safe bet (and in that case I don't think you'd recognise me)
Yeah I use that nick irl too. I'm not in rori though but that sounds like we might have mutual friends. You're welcome to email me if you're interested, I didn't really expect anyone from our place to also be into uchuu so this is pretty cool news to me.
Saw a bunch of clothes on Monki today that could be awesome for uchuu. I was tempted to buy a holographic jacket but I'm a poorfag and had already spent a little bit of money that day so I didn't really feel like I could buy it. Plus I probably wouldn't wear it a lot outside the fashion
Found this coat on Taobao while searching for a lolita coat and was thinking of this thread.
Apparently they're by a Japanese designer Mikio Sakabe. Sadly they seems very uncomfy to wear as the girls in pic needed aids to help them walk and even stand. Some Alexander McQueen crab boots maybe could also do it? Pic related.
It's hard to find cool uchuu boots.
Nothing easier than finding futuristic shoes in general, it's only that most are not made for daily wear rather than clubbin.
Has anyone found a place to get good pvc skirts? I'd love to wear more uchuu stuff, and tops are fairly easy to find, it's just skirts and shorts are the real toughie here. I know american apparel had some for a while but they've since run out and I've had no luck finding pvc skirts that aren't $100+ anywhere.
I was also wondering if anyone had good links for holographic pleated skirts or if I'd have to splurge on an etsy seller for one.
I found these, if it helps? I don't know about quality, though if you do take the gamble let me know what they're like!
Thank you! I'm usually not a fan of the first link's cut but it's actually so cute I might buy it. I've been made a fool by aliexpress a few times before, but since comfort isn't really the main priority in these, they shouldn't be too terrible even if they turn out bad.
Has anyone found chloma replicas or anything cheap and similar? Not super cheap necessarily, but around lolita price range is the most I can afford for clothes at the moment. I can't afford to spend a car every time I want a cool jacket haha.
The first link was posted in the taobao thread and uchuu thread a very long time ago, but I can't for the life of me remember the original brand name. I was going to buy them too but they were all sold out, but I'm really glad you linked them here! Also iirc a gull owns the purple ones and they were really cute!
Found the pleated skirt here, but it's not available yet:
Seems like marked up stuff from aliexpress but it's less than $100. The shop has a variety of other uchuu related stuff too.
Hahah I had never noticed before. I was wrong though, the coat kyunkun is wearing is a little different from mine but I can't remember the exact name of it– hers is labia-free though.
The only other shop that makes similar jackets is http://hatroid.com/ but they are around the same price. You always could send photos of the jackets to some Taobao shop that makes custom orders tho, that's how I got some lolita coats I designed myself done but the shop I used only does lolita clothes (https://my-lolita.taobao.com/), their submission form is in their product descriptions.
I'm surprised at what I find typing in "shiny jacket"
Speaking of bags, found a few on Ali:
