Happy Sunday! This is my piece for the @voltronfashionzine from last year. Tried to put an asian street fashion spin on it (I looked at Taiwanese and Korean)…closest is probably Allura with a modern hanbok, haha.
I had a lot of fun making this. Thanks to the moderators for letting me be a part of it!
-This place is pretty local. We see Yuuri and Victor carrying fresh groceries (which literally imply once again, they probably live together lol). If this place was not local, I doubt Viktuuri would be shopping for gorceries there.
-Yuri is definitely DRESSED UP from his usual street fashion of tacky leopard print or tiger stripes. Similarly, Otabek, my boy, my light, is wearing such an elegant and cute sweater. Both of these boys EVIDENTLY made an effort in looking more formal than they usually do. And in the context of this situation, they definitely cared a lot about this date in order to change their usual style.
-THEY WERE SHARING MUSIC??? MY SKIN IS CLEAR??? MY LIFE IS COMPLETE??? They were probably super into it because they both look super interrupted and surprised at Viktuuri’s intrusion.
-OK LEMME POINT out how fUCKING PROUD BOTH YURI’S PARENTS LOOK? Yuuri looks so happy and looks as if is wishing Yuri a happy time while Viktor is just “man, my son is growing up and finally not that much of an angsty edgelord.”
-THEIR OUTFITS MATCH. THEIR OUTFITS MATCH. THEY LOOK SO GOOD TOGETHER I’M CRYING. ARE WE CANON. WE’RE CANON RIGHT. AHHHH. WHAT IS THIS BLESSING IM CRYING IM LAUGHING I REALLY CANT GET OVER THIS.

hihihi i love ur neighbor au SO MUCH the shownu had me dyiNG it's so accurate, and the spicy changkyun one BOI i died anyways can i possibly ask for the last of the series, a cute hyungwon one?? Thank u and bless u :')
owns a one room apartment because it’s cheap and he doesn’t really need a kitchen,,,,when kihyun was helping him look at apartments hyungwon was just like “i need there to be room for a king sized bed.” and kihyun was like “oh but this place even has an extra closet it just costs a bit mo-” “kihyun,,,,,,,all i need is a place to sleep.”
has a full length mirror in the hallway and openly admits that he checks himself out in it. doesn’t openly admit that he’ll sometimes dance in front of it when he’s getting ready too
his brother begged him to not put up the photo of him when he first enlisted in the army but hyungwon,,,,being the person he is,,,,hung that photo right up next to his nightstand
but it’s cute,,,he hung up photos of his family alongside it because no matter what he misses them a lot
has a copy of every magazine he was a model in and keeps them in a stack on his bookshelf alongside a bunch of books on fashion and traveling,,,,,
every time his friends come over they pull out a magazine and tease hyungwon over his modeling but hyungwon’s like yall just mad because you’re not this beautiful
his coffeemaker is the most expensive thing in his apartment
has a mug that says ‘until this mug is empty, im not technically awake’,,,,it was a gift from minhyuk
fashionable hyungwon only exists in the streets. when he’s at home it’s big old t-shirt, froggy pajama pants, and froggy slippers,,,,,,,,i like to think he also owns a froggy pillow just because hyungwon + frogs is a meme or whatever but it’s also super cute,,,,,,,
wears glasses around the building and people don’t recognize who he is until he takes them off and they’re like OH it’s the model from floor eleven!!! and hyungwon is like slinking his way back to the elevator with very un-model like posture LOL
you’ve known ever since he moved in because when he was trying to get all his boxes up to his apartment
he was going at the most painstakingly slow speed,,,like literally one box at a time,,,,,and you felt bad watching this dude with his noodle arms try to move all by himself
so you offered to help and hyungwon had tried to say it was ok but then you’d lifted like three boxes and he was like you know what please do help me lol
and after you two were done you pointed at your door across the hall and you were like “im your neighbor, neighbors should help each other!! since i helped you today,,,,”
and you had looked him and down and hyugwon had tilted his head in confusion and you were like
“since i helped you today, promise me if i ever need your help idk,,,,since you’re so tall,,,,,fixing a lightbulb or something,,,you’ll help me? deal?”
and you’d stuck your hand out and hyungwon,,,,although usually unwilling to sign himself up to doing something aside from taking a nap,,,,had shook your hand back
and since then you’ve just you know,,,, been good neighbors to each other
you always see each other in the evening when you’re coming back from work and hyungwon will already have his glasses on and his hair a mess and you always giggle because he seems like the opposite of a model and he’ll just shrug because doesn’t he actually look better this way?
and it’s just very casual and friendly and you say goodbye to each other as you go into your apartments
but one night hyungwon notices that you’re not there when he’s waiting for the elevator but he shrugs it off because??? maybe you have overtime or you’re out with friends
but when he’s home, already laying down reading his favorite webtoon e looks at the time and it’s like,,,,close to midnight
and just to make sure you’re ok,,,he gets up and goes to knock on your door
deciding that he’d rather just make up some excuse how he ran out of toilet paper and isn’t just you know,,,,worried
but then??? you don’t answer
and hyungwon tells himself that he’s not worried and he’s not panicking over you,,,his neighbor,,,,,,who he obviOUSLY hasn’t been fond of since you helped him out,,,,,like haha what no,,,,
and that’s totally not the reason he goes outside of the building in his slippers at like 1am just to see if you’re coming home really late,,,,like noooo he’s going to the corner store to get himself a really super late night snack
and as he’s coming out of the store, untouched ice-cream in hand he sees you
and you’re just walking really slowly, yawning against your palm because your boss made you stay to finish up documents that aren’t even a part of your job and you just,,,, really want some sleep
and when you look over you see hyungwon,,,,in his froggy slippers with ice-cream and you’re like “hey,,,,why are you up this late?” and hyungwon just snorts because he’s like i could ask you the same thing
and you stick your tongue out but you’re like my devil of a boss made me do work that’s not even mine can you bELIEVE IT
and hyungwon is still holding that ice-cream,,,,his heartbeat finally settling down at the sight of your face
and you notice how he’s quietly just staring at you and you look down at his hand and you’re like “the ice-creams gonna melt???” and he’s like i don’t really care
and you’re like cool can i have it???? and you grab it and unwrap it and hyungwon can’t help but smile to himself and you’re like eating, the glum look on your face gone
and you and hyungwon get into the elevator and you’re like “so seriously, why are you up right now? you told me once you could sleep for like 29 hours!!!” and hyungwon is like i wanted a late night snack and you’re like dude,,,,,im eating your late night snack c’mon tell me the real reason
and hyungwon adjusts his glasses with his hand and looks away and you’re like ???????? and he’s like “sorry,,,i was worried,,,i guess,,,”
and you almost choke on your icecream because wait,,,,
hyungwon who could sleep through a thunderstorm, who forgot your first name for the first three months you knew each other, who as never told you he’s been worried about /anything/,,,,,,,,
hyungwon was worried about you?
and you get to your floor and you’re both silent but you’re like,,,,,well!!!don’t worry because im fine,,,,,,im gonna go sleep though~~ ok bye!!
and hyungwon sees you disappear inside without another word and he doesn’t really know what to think of it so he goes inside too
but you’re,,,,,,,standing in your hallway,,,,cheeks pink and you’re like wait,,,,does he,,,,,does he like me,,,,,,,,did he just not want to admit it,,,??
and in the morning you and hyungwon bump into each other and hyungwon is obviously acting awkward and you’re like “give me your phone” and he’s like huh
and you’re like “you said you were worried about me right, well here’s my number. just text me the next time you’re worried. plus,,,,,,,,i can text you if i ever get worried.”
and hyungwon’s looking at you in shock and you’re like ,,,,, getting a bit red and you’re like,,,,,,,heY we made a promise before about helping each other we can make the same promise about worrying too,,,,,that or you know,,,,,
and the door opens to the lobby but hyungwon doesn’t get out and neither do you and he’s like “,,,you know,,,what?” and you’re like,,,,,,you know,,,,,,how couples just worry about each other without a promise because you like the person so you worry oh god im rambling
and before you know it hyungwon leans in and presses his lips to yours and you’re like !!!!!!!! i guess,,,he agrees on the couple thing!!!!!!!!
but the doors close before either of you can get out and the elevator is going back up and you pull back and you’re like hYUNGWON im goinG TO be LATE for the bUS now,,,
and he shrugs and pulls you around the waist closer to him and he’s like more time for us to kiss-
and you’re like no no no you don’t get to kiss me since you made me late ):<
hyungwon: :’( ok ill kiss you after we both comeback from work
Humans of New York (and other “Humans of…” spin-offs. These don’t actually focus on fashion but they tend to show much more everyday, “normal” looks and people compared to the super-fashionable subjects of fashion blogs)
There are plenty of other blogs and sites out there too, so don’t give up if these few don’t have what you’re looking for!
I’ve FINALLY finished this cancer art. If some of you didn’t know, the fashion Star’s wearing is called “Harajuku Street Fashion from Japan” ( the trend died off ;_; ). Thought it be a good look for Star in reflection of her CRAZY personality
also FIY this is my own bg so… ya know dont say i stole anything
