Pictures from the latest reenactment. [Feb. 11th, 2009|07:56 pm]

[music |Bathory - Storm of Damnation]

I went as British 1st Airborne to the Operation Market Garden game held in Chiba, Japan last week. Here's some shots of the new uniform. Quite different from my usual style, but I liked it:

Winter Uniform Issue [Jan. 24th, 2009|11:12 pm]
Military Couture

For the renewed offensive this semester, Command has issued new uniforms!Collapse )

I bought the M40 tunic off eBay and because the color renders it unusable for reenactment purposes, I'm using it for day to day wear.  The shoulder boards are W-SS infantry ones off another uniform, but they go well with all the black :D

The pants are from www.x-tra-x.de/ and although the site is dreadfully tacky, I'd say take a peek.  Their brand "Bat Attak" has a bunch of clothing inspired/directly ripped off from uniforms of the Second World War.  The trousers have ties on the bottom, a pocket watch pocket, forward closing pockets, and a really high waist.  In short, they're awesome.

Surprisingly, I found the shirt in a department store in Kansas.  If any of you know where to get more like it (two breast pockets + shoulder straps) let me in on the secret!

Where do you get your Soviet militaria? [Jan. 24th, 2009|01:45 am]
Military Couture

I'm shopping around for the subdued green plastic version of the classic Soviet hammer and sickle buttons, and so far I've managed to miss a batch of them on Ebay, but located them - in both sizes, too, which is a bonus - at Trident Military. Has anyone here bought from them, or seen the buttons for sale elsewhere?

Here's some photos I took of my best friend. She used to be a velvet-wearing swirlygoth but I hope you'll all agree I fixed her up quite nicely;)

Luftwaffe: Coming sooner than you think to a country near you! [Jan. 19th, 2009|09:18 pm]

[music |Electric Six - I'm The Bomb]

Well, since the response to my first post was not entirely unfavourable, here's some more. I hope people don't mind actual uniforms as opposed to military-influenced fashion-type things, but hey, it's good to know your roots, right? If you're a uniform fetishist and NOT a history nerd I don't even know what to say to you. Also, I'd like to mention that I really approve of the overall civil tone and quality content of this community, as opposed to some of the others in a similar vein I looked over that were nothing but tacky porn and clubspam.

Anyway, here's my Luftwaffe fallschirmjager [paratrooper] uniform:

[music |Laibach - Tanz Mit Laibach]

Hello all. Just found this community, felt I should introduce myself. I live in Japan, which is great because it is an entire nation of obsessive antisocial nerds just like myself, and I can walk down the street dressed like THIS and the only people who hassle me are other foreigners:

My military couture [Nov. 5th, 2008|02:48 am]
Military Couture
No tie bar in this pic a la lie_to_be_happy (though I do own two tie bars, one plain silver & one silver-and-black), but here's my slate gray work shirt w/ epaulets w/ a silk black tie and rolled-up sleeves -- "military" couture. (I just think of it as guitarist-of-Joy-Division-couture.)

Yep, that's some posturing, there. But welcome to militarycouture

Eagle Tie Bar [Oct. 26th, 2008|10:49 pm]

I saw this on eBay and had to get it.  The eagle is clutching a scope reticule so it's perfectly alright to wear out.

About time I post something. [Oct. 22nd, 2008|12:19 am]
Military Couture

As I mentioned in my intro post, I make and wear a lot of uniform- and military-inspired clothes. I'm very bad at having photos taken of them, though, but I managed to get some after we got home last Saturday night.

Two more under the cut.Collapse )
