Explore punk fashion around the world - from New York, California, London and Germany to Iran, Myanmar, Cuba, South Africa, Russia, and Japan. Punk fashion in the 70s pushed against cultural norms, embracing the androgyny of rockers like Patti Smith. Malcolm McLaren brought New York punk style back to London. Geometric shapes were incorporated into makeup for a striking look.
When I, a shameless millennial, think of punk fashion, images of models and rock stars in the '80s and '90s immediately flood my mind. You know what I'm talking about: Courtney Love's signature smoky eyes, slip dresses and grungy outwear, Gwen Stefani's staple plaid pants and bandeau tops, the myriad of leather jackets, studded belts, and ubiquitous shades of black worn by all the rockers in that era.
Sure, it's easy enough to conjure images of what punk fashion looked like during that time — partly because so many of the styles have made a comeback in recent years — though not everyone is as familiar with what inspired the timeless sartorial trend to begin with. For instance, did you know that in the '70s, punk fashion was first influenced by the androgynous styles of rockers like Patti Smith and Joan Jett? And was then brought to London, redefined in Germany, adapted in Iran, amplified in Japan, and so on.
In Germany, punk evolved into German New Wave, with fluorescent hair color and dramatic makeup. Iranian punk took the classic London punk aesthetic and found ways to adapt it within their religion and culture, incorporating long sleeves and creatively integrating the hijab.
A small community in Myanmar stayed underground during decades of military rule. The Cuban punks known as Los Frikis were outcasts, often homeless. Their rejection of society led to early incarnations of the crust punk aesthetic. South Africa's burgeoning punk scene was influenced by hardcore punk's pared down attitude. Pussy Riot brought protest punk to the forefront of Russia's music scene in the 2010s. Harajuku punk took on the London aesthetic and amplified the fashion.

Southern California Punk is way different then the Allure watered down version. Their version is more indie rock then anything. I wish they actually went to a native and filmed their creative outfits instead. That would have inpressed me! Still this is cute.
Grouping too much into subculture and calling it by what they deem to be clever gifted in the phrase “punk” oh no no no! Do some more research before putting this stuff out or better yet have alternative people do these videos!
Russian outfit looks so... ridiculous! The real punks from Russia, in the 80s mostly, dressed more like the British ones. Such mistakes affect the image of the country and of the nation as well. I mean, check it out before uploading something.
Sorry, but a movement that is AGAINST politics, and is all about REBELLION AND ANARCHY, shouldn't adapt its image to their dressing laws. Punk + Muslims + hijab? Maybe that works in countries with no Muslim majority, but not in generally Muslim countries! I hope you understand me.
This is a unique real vampire website for vampires as well as the curious. It has valuable information for any real vampire and is based on scientific evidence. It also leads to other good websites for real vampires.
This is why I "think" Im a real vampire They have no desire to use us as lab rats or slaves. Before reading any farther on this site, This website is not made for poser vamps, close-minded people, or those who think that they are, or claim to be a vampire because they think the spirit of a vampire entered them at some time making them a vampire. We call these people posers, which they are; they are confused lost children. This site is not here for them in any way! It is for real vampires, curious people, and open-minded skeptics. The best compliment that you can give to this site, is telling all of your friends about it.
Real vampires are not pure fiction.
The Headache Paradox: It is scientifically impossible to have a headache, seeing that there are no pain receptors in the brain. Yet we continue to search for answers to what causes a headache, because we all know that headaches do exist.
Between a combination of the fact that our brains are roughly nothing more than a highly advanced mass of nerves, and that every function is controlled by signals that our brain sends through our nerves to the rest of our bodies, I think that if we could somehow make our nerves send stronger, more efficient signals at a quicker speed it would have a lot of different results. Including heightened sense (both physical and psychic) moving quicker both running and walking along with arm movement etc. The brain being just nerves would obviously also be effected, resulting in quicker more efficient thinking, which naturally would make us smarter, more observant, and have much sharper reflexes.
Some say that is an overly simplified form of how the brain functions, which it is. To them I say make the axons 12-15% wider, resulting in signals being sent much more quickly through the brain. Allowing neurons to create more connections without loss of speed, and the 10,000+ miles of blood vessels in the brain doubling as an additional cooling system for the brain. I could write a book on the cascade of effects that alone causes for people when they are changed in to a real vampire, however for now I will leave it in this simplified form.
