^ i just wasted time on that thread too whats wrong with american heritage look -____- i think its definitely getting overdone, but seeing as the basis for all of that is heavier and thick textured materials and knits... i dont see how its fundamentally boring or bad :[ = I don't think there is anything necessarily wrong with certain pieces from that tradition. I'm just lamenting when it borders on a costume. Seriously, some of the stuff is just way over the top corny. I like it when it's a bit more toned down, original, interpreted, or subtle. Over the top, hit you on the head stuff just lacks nuance. Textured materials is hardly something exclusive to heritage. Where have you been? This is a bona fide original and one of the crowning images in the Creepy Satorial Images thread. Don't believe you.
