I was made for another planet. – A&Y at Neo Japan

It was that retro-rebelliousness sponsored by corporate entities which was so popular on the runways of New Japan. She was made for it. Not because she was retro, or even rebellious. Corporations didn’t sponsor actual dissidents. By making rebellion fashionable, they took away its power. It was an underhanded tactic that worked surprisingly well. When housewives shave their own heads for the sake of fashion, a malcontent looks surprisingly mainstream.
I was made for another planet, but I lost my way.

Hello, bloglings! A&Y released some new scifi awesomeness with this cape at Neo Japan. Pop on over and grab it, but only if you want to look this badass.

Experience is sexy. – A&Y @ Romp

She was sexy. It wasn’t difficult to fit these physical criteria. I remember tales of when people were forced to live and be judged by the lottery of birth and appearance from centuries back. What a strange world that must have been. But we reconfigure ourselves regularly, given money and access. So, we are forced to live and be judged by the lottery of power and wealth.

Experience is sexy.

A&Y released this beautiful latex, cyberpunk corset at ROMP this round. It comes with all their usual color tinting, glow effects changing HUD. they also released this cyberpunk ballet boots at Fetish Fair.

Now, I admit, I love cyberpunk and scifi things. I watch tons of Dr. Who and Star Trek. SciFi has this ability of questioning modern conventions in a popular way long before other media outlets are capable of doing so. However, there are, in SciFi, some troubling and problematic tropes. Even though I love movies like The Fifth Element, it is trope which really exemplifies a lot of social issues. If you are interested in a really thorough and nuanced discussion of this, this video is excellent:

On the artificial reproduction of the human experience of loneliness. – A&Y at Good Vibes Fair

“Am I human?” The thought swept through her brain as she stood in the darkness of the universe. Or, perhaps, as the darkness of the universe swept through her brain, she stood and thought, “Am I human?” It is a question of origins. Or, perhaps, it is a question of being.

She would shrug, if she could shrug. However, her power source was dwindling, and her body did not respond to the electrical impulses that fired from her brain when in power save mode. So, she did not experience the darkness of the universe around her, even if it seemed to her that it was pressing in on all sides. Is this what it means to be human, to experience such things? Loneliness, despair, abandonment? It must be a glitch with the power save mode; her processor decided.

On the artificial reproduction of the human experience of loneliness.

Hello, bloglings! I have a soon-to-be-released bikini from A&Y to s how you today. It has their usual fantastic and extremely customizable HUD along with their amazing cyber punk style. It is being released at the Good Vibes event which opens on the 15th.

Precarious – A&Y at The Dark Fair

There were no thoughts, only sensations. The sensation of her muscles contracting. The feel of the steel grip warmed by her own palm as she held it. The flutter of her hair as she twirled. The air which slipped across the surface of her skin with each exaggerated movement. It was the cool, rough concrete under bare feet which forced her upward, and then that moment of weightlessness right before gravity tried to pull her back to Earth’s core. The soft buzzing of the neon flickered behind her, making the world seem surreal and broken. She could hear her own breath easing in and out of her lungs and the broken, heavy breathing of the man before her.

But they were just sensations, disjointed from the world. In this moment, she was death, but she did not feel like death. She felt like life. Exuberant, powerful, infinite.
Precarious - A&Y at The Black Fair

Hello, bloglings! A&Y has released these tops and gloves at The Black Fair. One of my favorite things about A&Y items are the versatility.

Data Courier – Uber

“In the cities of the future, after the first EMP wiped out the networks, code becomes more valuable than gold, and those who smuggle it weave through the darkness above the normal flight paths to keep the grid alive. These data couriers are the unsung runners of the new Dark Age.”

0303017-09 (Edit 3).png

Hello, bloglings! Uber has opened and is full of lots of fun things this round. I’m not sure what the official theme is, but I would label it Tokyo Street Style. I was really inspired by this hoodie by Kitja. They have leather pants that go with it, but I chose to wear another pair by Canimal at the same event.

This lil story snippet above was written by my good friend Porlock. It went so well with the photo that I told him I was stealing it. ❤
