Lady M of The Ladies Affair introduced me to Chictopia, a fashion-inspired social network where beautiful people show off their superior fashion sense, indulge in and perpetuate self-narcissistic voyeurism and basically are the product of a cyclic, consumerist hyperculture whose sole motivation is money, which is what really turns the cog of its elaborate economic machine. Fashion, along with pop music, are tools that the shadow rulers of the world employ to keep the masses docile and well, stupid.
Some of the photos are really well-taken, and some of the clothes are quite a visual treat. Definitely a leap up from the oft-claws-out delusions-of-grandeur stuff you find in local fashion LJ community runwaycity. Plus my idea of great fashion is pairing a t-shirt with my favourite band’s name on it with well-worn Levi’s, so why would anyone take my snide comments seriously? Heh.
New fashion for mimes

I love broad-brimmed hats. Just give it a pointy tip and the lady a +5 Armageddon Staff Of Munchkin Power!
Not all Filipinos are maids, apparently.
