Let's talk fashion trends for a moment. First I want to begin by saying what a big impact Stardoll seems to have on our fashion tastes. I've fallen in love with so many different styles, and not just because some of them were trendy. In fact, it's some of the trendiest things that I despise the most.
First up is the "Cross Trend" as I like to call it.
Ever since Lady GaGa decorated herself and her music videos with crosses, I've seen them become a widespread phenomenon. People are wearing cross necklaces(like the one shown above), t-shirts and even shaving crosses into their hair. A common thing on Stardoll is to decorate your doll's face with moles in the shape of cross. That I think I hate the most.
And to be clear, I don't dislike this trend simply because I'm Atheist. I also hate the inverted cross trend, which didn't first symbolize satanism. While many view it as a "satanic symbol", the inverted cross was first called the cross of St. Peter, who refused to be hung in the manner of Christ. Which many mistook as an opposition to Christ.
Back to the point. My reason for disliking the cross trend is simply because I view it as a symbol of faith for all religious followers. I believe if you wear a cross, it should be because you're proudly showing your faith for whatever vision of God you believe.
If you love the trend because you love God, that's great!
I still don't like it. -.-'
Next on my list is something I am seriously angry about. xD
the scene trend
First of all, I want to give you a history lesson. The term scene actually refers to people that were in constant support of their music scene. Mainly local bands in their area. But it could also refer to the genre of music. Basically, scene kids went to every show they could, in support of their bands, local or not. So in lamer terms, being scene wasn't something that you had to dress a certain way for. It was a "label" you adopted by loving music and loving to support it.
Not long after came the scene fashion trend, as shown above. I absolutely hate this trend! The hair is one of the most annoying parts about it. I absolutely love hair, fake or real. But this hair and haircut in particular makes me laugh. Mainly because it's a different take on a mullet.
It's even called a fashion mullet. xD
Basically what you do is cut your hair in the style shown above, dye it crazy colors and you're cool(: Also, if you have a bunch of hair bows from when you were four, that adds to the cool factor. Next thing you need to do to achieve the scene style is to acquire the tightest pair of skinny jeans you can find. Neon colors are nice. Then you should visit the children's section of any store that sells Carebear, My Little Pony, Hello Kitty, or any other character on a t-shirt. To top the look off add a belt, but don't put it through the loops! You can also add some colorful necklaces earrings or bracelets. Or you add a ton of all three! The more the merrier, right?
I have a feeling all the "scene" kids out there are going to be real upset with me. Well I've got news for you, oh colorful one, you're not actually scene if you don't actively support your music.
