OOTD: Iron Maiden

I never get dressed up for gigs, but I went to see Iron Maiden on Saturday (who put on a fucking amazing show!) and we had seats so I figured I could get dressed up without getting drenched in other people's sweat or twisting my ankle - I've never worn heels to a gig before, ever! Makeup is my Captain Hook look from yesterday.


 

Iron Maiden shirt: Ancient, customized by me.
Wet look leggings: Winners
Boots: Pleaser.
Belt, bandana: eBay
Nightmare before Xmas bowling bag: Disneyland :D



I changed into my boots on the tube because the less stairs I have to negociate in them the better - socks and sandals lady was unimpressed! Do you dress up for gigs/shows or are you a jeans and t-shirt, let's-get-all-sweaty kind of gig-goer?

  1. I like to get in the front and stuff so it's normally well tied-on trainers, jeans and t-shirt for me. Money in the bra :p

  2. I always want to dress up if I'm going to gigs. I'm too old for the front row. ;) Too bad there aren't more gigs, clubs etc. around here 'cause I love to dress up and wear outrageous make up. :) (Love your boots.)

  9. I always want to wear cute flats, but to avoid my feet getting trampled upon, I normally go for biker boots, leggins and a long top that needs abit of a stretching :P Loving the way you customised your t-shirt, you should show us how to do that! X

  10. I tend to wear flats for gigs because even if it's seated I like to get up and have a boogie. I love this love though xxx

  11. You look HOTTTTTT! I have to admit though, the last time I went to a show it was a Backstreet Boys concert and it was like ... well it was a long time ago.

  12. I love this look, I think it's perfect. I like to combine style and practicality for gigs - boots and probably jeans if it's not an Emilie Autumn gig or something similar where everybody is just going to stand and listen. But I'm not one of those people who gets so sweaty all their make-up runs so I have plenty of fun with it!

  13. Oooh, look at you being all sexy and shit! If I didn't have huge gigantic man feet (thanks Mom!) I would totally wear shoes like that!

  14. I went to see Iron Maiden in Manchester and they were absolutely awesome! We didnt have the best seats but it was still amazing. I kinda dress up for gigs but not too much as no one is going to see anyway! Hope you had a great time :)

  15. Oh, I totally dress up. I mean, but I kind of dress up everyday. Everyday (aside from my business casual attire for work) I am either wearing dark navy/black skinny jeans, some kind of black heel (traditional, wedge, sandal with height, etc), and some kind of top that is usually black or gray or some dark color. I like the contrast to my pale skin/blonde hair. :3

  18. Did I not comment on this?! (ugh)
    DOOD. Totally hawt. I wish I could rock a band shirt like that, I end up looking like a child. Your makeup went so well with it too! Glad you had a great time.

  19. O.M.G. I DIE FOR THIS OUTFIT!!!!!!!!! I love how it's so rocker chic and then you paired it with the sleek hairstyle......it came together so well! YES!
    If I'm going to a concert, I often will wear heels and makeup and dress up and get covered in other people's sweat and twist my ankles anyway. I'm not too classy to get all sweated up in my nice outfit and heels (it washes out, right?)
