I love the look on your face. You look prepared, almost as if you are about to jump someone or charge into battle, could be either way. Anyways- I really love this shot. Ok, I am about to jump out of my skin- where the hell do you get your clothes!? Are they custom made, or do you put them together yourself, etc..?

........ *whispers to friend* [Can't we just send this guy for those stupid wars and assasinations and then he could come back on a pirate ship since he looks like a modern pirate? 'Cause that's what I think.] Friend- [But he needs more muscle. It would intimadate the enemy and he would look awesomer and epicer.] Me- [But if he has no defined muscle now, it could be, like, the enemies don't know he's strong and stuff and they let their guard down thinking he's, like, a brat or something. He could return buffer and then everyone would be like, 'Holy $hit. Who the h3ll are you?'. That would be awesome.] Friend- [Yeah that would.] Then the rest of the story is that we start going off topic and then yeah... We're random and slightly crazy like that. (^^") I'm slightly worried about our future...
Impressive. What really grabs my attention, besides the overall design and style, is it actually seems functional. You see so many "post apocalyptic" fashion and it would be completely useless in case of civilization collapse. Will you be showing us more views of this outfit? I'm curious about how the top is connected.
Just throw on some scrap metal armor and you will be alright. You look more like a Raider in this outfit, so I believe that setup would work. You realize you give me ideals for my everyday wear, don't you?
I'm halfway hoping apocapunk will become a thing, like steampunk did, and halfway hoping it doesn't. It'd be really cool to have a scene with events with this sort of aesthetic, but I fear it'd turn out more like medieval faires and comic conventions centered around cultural consumption than the DIY, counterculture thing I would want it to be.
Unfortunately that is probably what it would turn out to be, if it becomes a thing. DIY will become a thing of the past just like with every other subculture that becomes a major ideal/trend. Meetups would probably be better. May I use that term? Apocapunk? I rather like it.
