*sigh* I'm trying to come up with a topic for my Honours project and am failing miserably! I have a week and a half ish to have my topic sorted and I keep crashing in to bloody tritanium walls! I thought of exploring the Harajuku fashions and culture, like the reason they dress like that and really get into the social and grouping issues. Then my product could be a mashup of a harajuku and a western style, like lolita-steampunk.

Well, that plan is scuppered, as I've found this AMAZING paper by a sociologist called Chris Perry, who did HIS dissertation on the subversion, subculture, and style of Harajuku. And it was brilliant, totally amazing! His research is amazing and his conclusions are great. It's totally comprehensive...which leaves me out in the cold, as I can't think of a new way to look at it!

I still want to do lolita-steampunk, but now I have to think up a new idea for my question! ARRRRRGHHHHHH! *tears hair out*

Oh god, this year is going to be hard! Why, oh why didn't I choose something easier, or graduate with my degree in the summer?


Ooooh! I have just this min thought of another idea! How about a look into "futuristic costumes" and how they were portrayed in films, say, from the 60s to the present day, coming up with my own version at the end! I COULD RESEARCH STAR TREK! (also others, but I am too excited about star trek!) Hmm, does that sound good, or is this icon appropriate:


If anyone has any ideas on any of this, feel free to chip in at any time!

God, it took me a little while to work out how to reply to this XD. But I got there in the end!

Anyway, *hugs* Sorry uni is being such a stress, I don't envy you! I'm glad I don't have to think about dissertations yet, haha. But I like the sound of your new idea! What exactly is your course about? It sounds interesting.

By the way, the first icon is awesome!

*hugs back* I love that icon, but I never use it! My course is Costume Design and Construction- fun but much harder than it sounds! I'm really excited about my new idea- watching movies for research FTW!

Any news back from [livejournal.com profile] velven about any possible crossovers in her project? Otherwise, I think yer Futuristic project is UBER-AWESOMESAUCE! (It's not a dead hamster moment... it's a plan so utterly brilliant that it could never have been though of in the first place ;P ... ah... how terribly mis-quoted is that... but y'know what I'm getting at).

No news yet...which remeinds me to check my QM email! Ugh! Email from Polly, she says to focus on one region, like North America, or my project will be too big. Bleugh!

Ah, yes. Remeinds is kinda like reminds, but more special, and with more..."me" in it...? *cough*
