Black and white is a really simple theme, so I started thinking of how I could make it unique. People often ask me how I come up with coords and I always say I used to be really into Gaia Online. Seriously, that website help me learned how to dress. Then I remembered "halfatars." I was always amazed with those because I could never emulate it in-game, so I thought let's try it in real life and here's what I managed to come up with thanks to a lot of safety pins. Shout outs to Meci and Amber for helping me come up with this title. Monochrome + Romance = Monochromance. I submitted this picture:
Hair: Alpaca Sound Horizon Marchen wig + Arda Wigs short bands (pure white)
Blouse: Alice and the Pirates
Jacket: Atelier Boz Eternity Roland 2x
Buttcape: Atelier Boz 2x
Cage Skirt: Fanplusfriend
Garter: Metamorphose temps de fille + Chess Story
Socks: Metamorphose temps de fille + Alice and the Pirates
With only one week to do this, I'm pretty satisfied on how it came out since I didn't want to alter and sew anything. Originally, I wanted to make this an ouji coord, but the Roland jackets hid too much of my legs to see any details. You can see how weird it looks in the back. I really am wearing two jackets at the same time! Needless to say, this is a photoshoot only outfit. I don't know if I made it in or not since the program doesn't air for another few weeks, but here's hoping AKIRA notices me!
Dear Black Peace Now also executed this technique. Minori is also incorporates it into her style. If you're up for a challenge, try making a vertical split coordinate. Try with all colors, not just black and white!

P.S. I am still mourning the loss of BPN. :( Good news: my copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf should be here later today!! I'll post my friend code when I get it.
