The first annual Culture Shock event began on the first of this month and is absolutely huge. There is a massive amount of stores involved all of them showcasing their fantastic gear including exclusive items for the event and 50-100% of the profits from these items will go to the Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) charity. So I took myself down there and spent some money gladly, knowing it was going to a very good cause.
The first item I have to show you, above, is the limited edition ‘Kiss Me…’ shirt from T Junction (thanks to Kalli Serevi for sending this to me). You guys will have all seen the quality of their gear here on our blog before so you know what you’re getting: great colours, wonderful shading and creasing and the always cool slogans. I can’t forget the great prices and this top will only cost you L$75.
Next I’ve got the ‘Simple V’ in white from Atomic. For L$100 you can pick up this fresh looking top that comes on all layers (and I do mean all) and comes with sculpted, fantastic looking sleeves. One little detail about this shirt I really like is that the hem is slightly skewed with one side being longer than the other, giving it a nice loose look.
The hairstyles and eyes I’ve worn in all the above pictures come from the MADesigns Culture Shock exclusive which includes these three brilliant spiky, mohawky ‘dos: Simon (Skunk Black), Jake (Dark Brown VIII) and Colt (Black IV). These are all you’d expect from MADesigns, great examples of masculine hair. You also get a black hairbase on the tattoo layer to blend in with these styles but that’s not all. The pack includes three pairs of eyes as well: Island Green, Nature Run and Dark Imaginings. And we’re still not finished! You also get a pair of prim eyes (which I’m wearing in the third picture). I’ve never worn prim eyes before and I was surprised at how well they sat in my eye sockets and the mismatched colours, very different and I just loved it. This full to the brim of awesomeness pack will only cost you L$500.
The poses I’ve used in this post are from Status and are also at Culture Shock, male and female poses and the pack I bought is called Samson for L$75.
This is just a very small slice of Culture Shock and this is one event you should definitely see. Unlimber those wallets, have a wander around and donate to an extremely worthwhile cause while you pick up some super stuff for yourself.
