Electric Shock

Is June like girl group comeback month or something? I can’t keep up with all the comebacks (╥_╥)

Today it’s all about f(x)‘s electric shock!!

Mood:

Electric shock is a very upbeat and energetic song with a touch of flirty-ness to it, which is great for my mood right now.  It has some techno vibes, giving it that ‘electric’ feel (pardon the pun). It’s a great song to be blasting at the club.

The video itself isn’t really all that different from the typical k-pop video. You’ve got your dance shot(s), some close ups, and those single person mood shots, where they usually walk around or dance.

The song is very typical f(x) with the techno feel (see NU ABO and hot summer). Even the concept is very typical of their image. I love  f(x), but they really ought to switch it up a little.

I’m gonna include the choreography section here because I don’t really have much to talk about. There’s a good amount of partner work in this, it’s kind of like a signature for f(x) I think. I think the work would be fun to try and replicate, especially with some friends.

Styling:

I have a lot to talk about here because of all the close ups, so bear with me maybe?

MV still 2 is monochromatic + pink with platform shoes, but as you can see, the members are all styled differently. My favorite look is  Sulli‘s, with the high-low skirt, fishnets and corset. For those of you who know me in real life and/or follow me on tumblr, you’re probably aware of my obsession with corsets. So it’s probably no surprise that Sulli’s look is my favorite.

MV still 1, like MV still 2, is also monochromatic + color (in this case its either neon green or blue) with doc martens. I don’t really have a favorite look here because I find the styling here to be kind of bland.

MV still 3, isn’t monochromatic like all the other two stills, but it’s actually quite colorful. I’m seeing a lot of red and yellow with either platform sandals(?) or sneakers. With this one, Sulli, once again, takes the cake with her crazy hair and remake style skirt.

MV still four has the monochromatic + color going again (pink or yellow) with either sneakers or platform shoes. With this one, my favorite look is actually Victoria’s, with the yellow platform shoes and bangle, black/white biker jacket, and the dot print shorts.

In the close-ups, a lot of them are wearing plastic toy earrings, which are very DIY’able. (maybe I’ll make a tutorial? comment if you want one)

Now let’s talk make-up and hair.

The make-up is really simple. Feathery lashes with color accent, slight cat wing eyeliner, and pink lips. Hair is just streaks of color, which can be achieved by hair chalking or by adding extensions. In some of the close ups, some of them have shocking blue eyes, which can be achieved through circle lenses (not FDA approved, be extremely careful if/when using them).

Let’s put it all together!!

Suddenly, there was Snoop Dogg and Karl Lagerfeld


Tourism Video much?

So I was reading Fashionista today, and this popped up.

I decided to watch it, for the sake of seeing Karl Lagerfeld (who will now be known as the Kaiser), and I ended up having this sort of look : O.o

It vaguely reminded me of one of those videos sponsored by the country to promote tourism, like this 2PM one:

Maybe I should make a tourism video with a catchy theme song?

But who wants to watch a video about a smallish east coast town anyway?
