雨流儀: Yakuza fashionista



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 by lucilxlu featuring a chain necklace
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 by lucilxlu featuring wall art
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 by lucilxlu featuring a paco rabanne perfume
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.

雨流儀: Colourful Closet



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 by lucilxlu featuring a high heeled footwear
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 by lucilxlu featuring whimsical home decor
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 by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
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.

雨流儀: Signature Colours



In the silence of the Ame Hayato chronicles (really me getting distracted by my other original stories, whoops) I am still making and sharing the Yakuza’s outfits from Polyvore. 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 by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
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 by lucilxlu featuring Iman
Cute Shopper: Looking forward to seeing Paris myself in August of this year 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 by lucilxlu featuring handmade home decor
Glam: The first outfit out of the three that I created earlier today. I had the fur shawl and gun earrings in my saved items on Polyvore for months now and didn’t find any inspiration to incorporate them into my previous outfits for Ame. Until today. 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.

雨流儀: Pastel Princess



Ame is Queen of pink and mixing the cute accessories with sexy and seductive ideas, but she is not just into hot/candy pinks, I have also added the pastel shades to her closet and giving you new LOTDs that I have made in the past two weeks. They aren’t featured in her chronicles as of yet, I’m trying to figure out when she would wear them.

Below are the three outfits for this week keeping to the same pastel theme;
Pastels by lucilxlu featuring wall murals
City of Couture: Ame loves returning to Paris as much as she does to any of the other fashion capitals of the world, she blends in but also stands out in the Parisian crowd with her extravagent wardrobe and does not mind the attention she recieves. The pink corset with the denim long skirt (which is quite conservative for Ame’s risque style) along with the floral strapped heels work together and her make-up collection in this LOTD are all from France. The palette is by Lancome, the perfume is by Yves Saint Laurent but the Sailor Moon compact is definitely Japanese. Even her detailed hoop earrings have symbols of Paris inside them.

Leather princess by lucilxlu featuring home wall decor
Leather Princess: In her hometown, Ame is always that extra case of flamboyant in her attire, not just in her clothes and accessories but also in her make-up. The Anna sui cheek colour along with this perfume bottle gave the LOTD extra flair but the Miu miu pumps are gorgeous giving it elegance despite wearing a leather bralette. This outfit was also originally influenced by the Lolita fashion found in the Harajuku district in particular the Himegyaru or Princess Lolita, Ame always seen herself as a Princess since high school and incorporated it into her look.

Blossoming by lucilxlu featuring Christian Dior
Blossoming: This outfit I made is very whimsical, cute and highly floral, Ame has her moments in being very trashy and very confident in her body that she will happily show it off. She can also be aware of who she is and proudly show her Yakuza heritage, but she also has her moments in being very girly. I was feeling fairy mood when putting this outfit together and it was all inspired by the stockings that are hand made by Lirika matoshi, so intricate yet gorgeous! Also the mermaid tail brushes were super cute and I could see Ame have these in her make-up collection.

雨流儀: My Favourite sets



Translating this new sub-heading it reads ‘Ame Ryugi’ or Rain Fashion, in between my Second Life fashion tiles I decided I would share the sets I made on polyvore for Ame Hayato‘s wardrobe. The outfits that are featured in certain arcs and the various short stories that I have posted or have yet to post.

The below outfits are my favourites that I have on Polyvore so far..
City hopper by lucilxlu featuring photography wall art
City Hopper: Not part of any story or arc but just a random outfit I created that is fun and flirty and very Ame style. In the stories, she travels a lot outside of Tokyo, featured in the plot are cities like New York, Prague, London and Miami. High end destinations for any luxury traveller even for a Yakuza’s daughter 😛
Chinatown outing by lucilxlu featuring mac cosmetics
Chinatown Outing: While in San Francisco, Ame checks out their Chinatown and gets herself lunch. Again an outfit not really part of her storyline but I love the 2016 Ghostbusters as much as the original two and had to implement them in this cute outfit of hers. Ame would read ‘Ghosts from our past’ while happily eating dumplings nad drinking miso soup. This was also my first outfit that I created featuring food.
Timeless by lucilxlu featuring a silver necklace
Timeless: When in New York City, not purposely part of the Russian mafia/American spy arc that just finished but Ame would wear this kind of outfit when walking down Madison and Fifth avenues drinking from a Godiva milkshake 😛 Also she has a pet kitten though I doubt the feline would go travelling with her but it was a cute add-on to this outfit.
Travel between cities by lucilxlu featuring wall posters
Travel between Cities: Featuring in the next arc after Cartel, Ame travels between Milan and Tokyo for reasons due to be revealed when the stories are shared 😛 She is still armed “subtley” and her luggage of course is hot pink! Clicking around the airports in her Monique Lhuillier heels. She is what she wears, an elite Yakuza.

雨滴: The Wolf

We get a teaser into the next chapter of Ame’s story that leads her into Prague as well as the introduction of a new character.
Aleksander Volkov

In the far north of Russia, the fireplace was roaring inside a large manor as an older man sat in front of a large rectangular table that was covered with maps, manila folders and arsenal. His weathered finger pointed to a singular picture of Ame taken from the cameras of JFK airport.

“Наши враги дочь была убита. Самый молодой Хаято переехал в Прагу, поблагодарить ее от нашей семьи” (Our enemies daughter has been killed. The youngest Hayato has moved to Prague, thank her from our family)

In front of him facing the fireplace with hair that matched the blaze, a man in his early thirties wearing a business shirt and black pants picked up the photo and eyed it carefully, his hazel eyes flickering in the dim light before folding the piece of paper and tucking it into his front pocket. “Дядя, а что если я могу завязать сделку с ней, вы позволите это?” (Uncle, what if I can strike up a deal with her, will you allow it?)

The old man chuckled softly regarding his nephew with an amused look and opened his arms with a nod “Да шарм Ame Хаято, я уверен, что она не может сопротивляться вам” (Yes charm Ame Hayato, I am sure she can’t resist you). The young man with flame hair gave his uncle a lopsided grin before loading up a duffle bag with various guns, he lifted it over his shoulder and bowed low before quietly leaving the office.
