It is clear to say that pink and black is Ame’s trademark since college after moving on from the red and white of high school standards. The below outfits I made just today after getting a creativity spark hit me and I hope you all continue to enjoy her eccentric style.
Another three LOTD for you to all;
Explosive: The leather skirt was the first piece of clothing that I placed on the board and added everything else on top of it, this LOTD is heavily inspired by a future arc that will occur after Cartel and the one after that. Basically Ame and her older sister Mei go to Kyoto and blow up a building that is in an alliance with a traitor of their family the Hayatos. That is why she has heavy arsenal attached to the fierce yet still cute look. The shoes also are a statement on their own, unique and pink, it matches the heart grenade
Cute Shopper: Loved Paris in August and it is a favourite destination in Ame’s stories, this is just another random outfit I created for her when she goes shopping in the fashion city. I have been loving patches and enamel pins lately in reality and it has been featuring in Ame’s wardrobe recently too. Also incorporated Christian Louboutin in both her shoes and what she has been shopping while in Paris. The Chinese takeaway bag is from Japan from their Vogue magazine, further emphasising on Ame’s and my own Asian pride.
Glam: The faux fur just makes me think of the old fashion glamour days of Hollywood and Hyuna herself likes wearing a lot of shawls when she goes to award nights or performing on stage. The Charlotte Russe Nyx eyeshadow palette is very cute and something I would see part of Ame’s beauty haul in any country that she travels to, though this LOTD is based in Tokyo.
Well not in the sense that I am continuing the Ame chronicles, that’s still a work in progress at the moment but I am giving you three brand new fashion tiles that I haven’t re-shared from previous times. I also realised that I don’t need to keep finding new things to publish for Ame, her wardrobe is already big enough, expect to see familiar items in LOTDs in the future.
Yakuza in Venice: A corporate yet romantic outfit again much more covered up compared to her usual frisky style, Ame would be returning to Venice in the future of her chronicles and there is one reason why and it starts with J. The shoes are by her favourite designer Christian Louboutin and my favourite piece to this LOTD, I also like the Betsey Johnson bag that goes across the body. This outfit could be featured in a future arc but I have yet to decide.
Return to Prague: Deathclub was such a fun and deviant story to write during Prague arc that I’m sure in the future, the Yakuza would return there even if it meant facing her past (you will all understand it when I eventually get to posting the next arc in her tale). Unlike her previous outfit which was a harnessed black dress so to speak, Ame is going for more elegant vibes in this new attire, though the purse states otherwise. My favourite piece the Queen of Hearts earrings by Sophie Harley.
Milano memories: Another elegant piece though it has a plunging top and daring split up the side, Milan is one of the fashion capitals of the world and in a future arc, Ame will be going here and while doing her usual Yakuza job, she of course will be shopping. I personally have been to this city and found it to be surprisingly modern after all the other cities kept their ancient history. This outfit has yet to be part of a story but I have style it as a shopping trip, my favourite pieces definitely have to be the ruby red rooster by MCM and the pearl necklace.
It’s halfway through Summer in the northern hemisphere and I got inspired to make casual but still cute Summer outfits for Ame. They are all going with the theme of pink and denim and she is either back home in Tokyo or across the Pacific and in Los Angeles.
The three new LOTD that I have made for Ame are listed below;
Summer Bliss: Having been to Santa Monica myself about two years ago, it is the perfect, picturesque place for Summer. Having a mini carnival with ferris wheel on the wharf alongside the beach where a lot of locals catch the waves, I found it ideal for Ame to go there and take a break from being in the high end cities and constantly shopping. Because of it, this is a cute but much more simpler outfit compared to her other looks of the day. The only designer item she has in this look are the pink Jimmy Choo’s.
Casual Princess: I’ve seen HyunA wear pastel pink before for a music video and she looked absolutely adorable in it, this is another relaxed LOTD for Ame when she is back home in Tokyo, the most expensive item here is the pin! It is made by Christian Lacroix, the other expensive item is the denim scalloped skirt, one of Valentino’s works. Overall I was going for cute and very girly including the Hello Kitty iphone cover, the strawberry bag, Hello kitty nail polish and unicorn plushie, Ame is in her home country so as always she goes all out when it comes to her accessories.
Harajuku: Lots of bright colours and random additions to this LOTD, it was also a lot of fun to make and the first one I made out of the three featured in this post. The Marques’ Almeida wrap skirt, Alberta Ferreti tied belt and Aquazurra sandals were the expensive clothes in this colourful outfit but other than that, Ame is going for bright and happy to blend in with the people within the Harajuku district. This is an outfit that the Yakuza would wear when going to one of the monster cafes or shopping for unique accessories, she often hangs out here with her group of girls usually after a family mission.
Returning to pink and black outfits and none of these are part of Ame’s story arcs featured in her chronicles. These were all made recently on Polyvore when I had a random creative spike. The three outfits were inspired by places I have seen and wish to go there myself or wanting to have certain actors and actresses to be part of my chronicles dream cast.
Below are the three selected outfits for this week;
Valentines Day: Made on the 14th February, I was in a mush mood and was also in the middle of writing up the future stories for the Osvaldo Arc, this particular V-day is when Ame is back with her Italian mafia Jacen and they have gone to Paris for a weekend away. The above LOTD isn’t so much a dinner date but it could be during the day when Ame is out shopping at her favourite designer stores. She is subtlely armed in this look wearing her usual garter knives. My favourite accessory is the Gucci embroidered clutch.
Senpai in NYC: Ame stayed in New York city when she was hiding from the Russian Mafia Oleysa Zima, but has returned to the Big Apple on multiple occasions, she even has a permanent apartment in Park avenue. One of her connections through the London syndicate is a professor at New York university and rumour is that she is a crazy scientist. If in New York City, Ame will visit the professor to catch up as well as get any details on her latest creations. This LOTD is fun, feminine and eccentric, my favourite pieces is the egg purse and egg hair pins.
Rose Streets: I have shared so many outfits of Ame back home in the streets of Tokyo that I am certain everyone who follows her stories and fashion know what her looks are. Much more casual in the presence of friendships though still designer like her older sister Meiakane. Ame while in her home country always goes all out when it comes to her attire, she blends in with the Shinjuku and Harajuku crowds especially at night when the shops are open until late. My favourite accessories on this LOTD is the Kate Spade ‘Hello Tokyo’ cat bag and the badges/pins on her skirt.
There are various shades of the colour pink and Ame will wear all of them as much as she likes changing her hair colour. Recently I have been adding fuschia to the outfits on Polyvore to break up the same repetitive pattern of hot pink with denim or all black attire.
I am posting the three LOTD that feature fuschia;
Girly Frills: In her home city of Tokyo, Ame goes all out usually with her outfits and it usually means otherworldly accessories and random add-ons to the clothing. This look is no different, she favours unique heels or thigh-high leather boots and her pink katana is usually sheathed on her upper back. She also has a collection of different badges from various stores and pins them in her denim skirt. Her lipstick is usually Christian Louboutin’s lip lacquer.
L.A Cruising: Ame loves travelling to the City of Angels and not just because her former Dominant Jacen used to live there and she visited him often. She loves going shopping in Rodeo Drive and Melrose Avenue but has her lunch in Little Tokyo because it gives the familiarity of home. Normally in shorts or mini skirts, this particular outfit is giving out more class but still reflecting her eccentric taste in food accessories.
Hunting in Hong Kong: Post Cartel arc, the youngest Yakuza flies to Hong Kong to find answers of her target who fled Mexico when she was there with her older sister. Not wearing her trademark red lipstick and merely going with pink gloss, the steampunk goggles are also more an accessory than of any real technical use. She is armed up bringing two katanas and shuriken while hunting in the streets.
It is Summer in the Northern hemisphere and I am thinking of warmer climate, bright colours and not much layers of clothes to be worn. It has also randomly inspired me to make a trio of new outfits on Polyvore for my Yakuza fictional character- Ame Hayato. Still going with her signature colours of pink and black and keeping to her face claim that is HyunA, I hope you like the LOTD.
Made over the course of this week, these are the three styles I have created;
Tres Chic: Morning coffee run for herself before she starts her day in any of the fashion capitals of the world, originally I was going to have a black skirt to go with the feminine pink blouse but after seeing these fringed shorts from Farfetch, I decided that they were definitely more Ame’s style especially when paired with the Barbie heels by Charlotte Olympia. I have a couple of favourite items in this LOTD, the unicorn bag from Angelic Pretty, I have always wanted to have an accessory from this Japanese lolita store but its has always been too expensive to buy online, the perfume inspired by Beauty and the Beast is another addition I fave and the unicorn make-up brushes.
Hot Summer: Her make-up palette here is all rainbow! I can definitely see Ame attending a pride week parade whether it is back home in Shibuya during Rainbow week or going overseas to the foreign countries and watching them in either LA or Rome. Also with the rise of temperatures as the northern hemisphere heads towards the middle of its Summer, Ame be keeping cool in this crochet halter top. The denim skirt with pearl accessories was a favourite addition of mine to add in as well as the sushi plushies in the bottom right corner.
All Rose: Out of the 3 new outfits I made for Ame, this was the first one I created and it started from finding the pink cupcake top on another style on Polyvore. Going with a very elegant and feminine look, the telephone bag by Betsey Johnson and illustration of the wine bottles gives a very Parisian feel to this LOTD. The make-up collection she wears are all by Chanel, normally I do not go with this designer but the make-up was too cute and went well in this style. My favourite adds are the King and queen bracelet by Alexander McQueen, the silver dragon claws because a Yakuza’s daughter still needs ‘weaponry’ and the heels by Betsey Johnson of course.
Ame has no limitations in her young life, since she graduated from college and took part in her family’s ‘business’ she hasn’t stopped unless of course its a cause of the heart. Whether she is shopping in the fashion capitals of the world, having an elegant high tea in London or going clubbing in Las Vegas or Prague, she does it with style.
I have been on a roll when it comes to new LOTD from Polyvore, here are three;
Diva: Europe is the centre of Ame’s shopping if not across the Atlantic and in New York City. She frequents to Europe because of a certain gentleman in Milan but often spends her weekends away in Paris. In the French capital, Ame dresses up to the nines and often in designer’s latest creations. She either shops or attends the runway shows with the rest of the elite but also deals with her family’s connections and business in the Parisian underground. The above outfit is day time style that can also revert to evening by a simple change of accessories, her usual routine is grabbing a Godiva shake along the way. My favourite pieces is both the YSL scale skirt and gold plated harness by Giuseppe Zanotti.
Sweet: For high teas or elegant affairs in the public, Ame lessens her bold statements of colour and goes with pastel shades especially if in the presence of other important females. She still makes herself known with her accessories and the fact in this particular LOTD the top is sheer, her skirt is Gucci and heels are Sophia Webster. My favourite additions was the Beauty and the Beast palette and Polly Pocket that acts more as a random accessory than anything useful. The necklace is also by Swarovski with crystal and faux pearls, Ame has also kept her katana hidden underneath her skirt especially if the events she attends have other gang members.
Party Princess: Whether it’s at the Lux in Las Vegas or the Deathclub in Prague, Ame has been a party animal since she was a teenager. This LOTD is just one of her many party outfits and when she goes clubbing, she goes all out no matter what the occasion is. I cropped off the Moschino top to bear her midriff and the leather shorts by Balmain are accessorised with Forever 21’s pink fishnet stockings and again another product by Giuseppe Zanotti, the spiked heels. The pink bag is by Salvataore Ferragamo and the gold belt is made by Chanel, she keeps two shuriken in her pocket just in case the bouncers call her up on her gun. My favourite pieces though are both the mermaid face gems and crystal and velvet choker also by Giuseppe.
I made a couple of new sets but the theme going on with the below three is that they all have black skirts whether latex, polyester or nylon, skirts are an essential part of Ame Hayato’s wardrobe. Still keeping with her trademark colours of course and two of these LOTD are part of the arcs that occured in her chronicles.
The three chosen outfits are listed below
Sushi Sakura: My latest LOTD, I literally made it this morning while at work (we are very quiet today) I am not sure where I will put this outfit whether in an upcoming arc post Prague and Cartel or a random side story for Ame. This entire outfit is what the youngest Yakuza is all about. Cute and sexy rolled into a single outfit with themes of sushi, cherry blossom and cats. I think my favourite items are the sushi earrings and badge attached to her top.
Tea Party: Between the Cartel and Venice arcs, Ame is back in London doing some serious investigation and hunting for the killer (spoiler alert again and won’t say anymore!) and has a visit to the underground syndicate and catch up with the members of the Joyce family and Richardson gang. It is through intel and her alliance with these two London clans that Ame is given information of the whereabouts of the killer. This outfit is slightly more covered up than her other outfits, though the skirt is still miniscule. She is wearing pearls and gold to match with the high end scene of London.
Hospital Visit: Beginning of the Cartel arc that I started writing up, Ame returns to Tokyo swiftly from Prague after finding out one of her family members have been attacked. I won’t say who just keep reading the chronicles, though at this rate I am posting each short story in this blog, you will all probably won’t read it until the new year. The cute bag is by Dolls kills and she is wearing restrained clothing that acts as a physical shield for her tender emotions at this moment.
Though her chronicles are currently quiet (on hold in writing the next arc) I had an inspired moment this past week and made completely new looks for Ame and keeping with her colour themes of pink and black. The person that I use as my face claim for Ame is Kpop idol HyunA and lately her hair has gone bright red/orange being part of the musical unit Triple H, that gives ideas for future looks for my character 😛
Featured below are the three new looks made through Polyvore;
Elegant Adventure: Ame is a renowned traveller, seen at the high end shopping events around the world or within the underground network causing up a stir with the other gang families. But unless she is trying to appeal to the opposite sex, she does it with style. New York city is a favourite haunt of hers and she visits the U.S frequently to catch up with friends or go to events in the Big Apple. The tea with mini ice-cream cookies was a favourite addition to this LOTD but the bracelet itself is well over 1k is gorgeous.
Worldly: Again going back to the theme of being a traveller but floating between Milan and Tokyo in the recent arcs to come (you will find out why when I get to posting her chronicles again) this LOTD is cute with the undertones of being a Yakuza through representation of her weaponry. Carrying her trademark katana as well as throwing knives, she always is careful when going from Yakzua territory into Italian mafia land. The choker and pumps are both by Betsey Johnson continuing with her eccentric style but the most expensive item here are in fact the leather bracelets by Givenchy.
Feminine Touch: Staying in her home city and still look fabulous is what Ame does best, though she hardly flaunts her expensive attire unless attenting a function, the Yakuza still loves to be bold in her choice of clothing. The boots are one of my favourite adds to this LOTD but the Moschino bag as well with sticking to her colour scheme of pink and black. Normally in Tokyo, Ame would go outlandish and stick out even in the Harajuku crowds but when she gets older she slightly tones it down. But only just.
Before Ame went to Miami for a family mission and finding love along the way, before she retrieved the golden lion ring from the Triads, the youngest daughter of Masaru Hayato was studying in London at 21 years old shortly after her first marriage ended when she completed senior high school in the United States.
The particular sets I have published today are when she goes to Paris;
Bonjour Paris: After infiltrating the London underground and becoming friends with Bennett of the Joyce family syndicate while studying at the University of foreign affairs. Ame spends the weekend away in Paris after hearing about high end fashion in the City of Lights. While in Paris, Ame is very designer, wearing Moschino, Jimmy choo and a Saint Laurent, she even brings one of her own home brands Koko and Yosuke from Japan in the form of her faux fur shawl. Ame has also bought a Godiva shake while enjoying her shopping.
Lourve Visit: Ame recieves word from Bennett back in London that a thief has snuck into the famous Lourve in hopes to steal one of their precious artworks, wanting to see the tourist attraction herself as well as gain a strong reputation while visiting Paris, Ame pursues the amateur thief into the Lourve. Not making herself too obvious to the security, Ame just sticks to her throwing knives that are gartered and kept hidden under her pink checkered skirt. Her statement piece in this LOTD are her Dolce and Gabanna gold shoes.
Sweet Travels: After stopping the Lourve thief, Ame returns to London with her earnings plus her spending on clothing and sweets. She is a massive sweet tooth and loves the macarons from the bakeries in Paris. She doesn’t just have one particular suitcase, she has various others including this pink hard cover. Of course during her travels around the world, she carries a small selection of weaponry including her katana and shuriken.
