Lila Cheney Inspired Look!
Hey True Believers!
Today’s look is inspired by the one and only, Lila Cheney! Lila is British, an intergalactic rock star, and a mutant with the power of intergalactic teleportation. She’s been one of my favorite characters for so long and I’m bummed that she hasn’t been used recently. She was introduced in the early 80s and was modeled after Joan Jett (I mean, common look at this).
Lila doesn’t wear a costume, nor is she a super hero. She’s a rock star (and former thief) so she tends to have different outfits when she does pop up. She did wear this little leather number for quite a while in the 90s (along with another outfit she has with a dotted skirt) but this is how I remember Lila. Black leather jacket, black bustier, black bootie shorts, black thigh high boots and hoop earrings. (and an awesome haircut I actually used to have lol. I miss it). Anyway, I based this look off of her black outfit and blue hair highlights (used to show that a character’s hair is black in comic books). I also added some blue shimmer on the brow bone to represent her teleportation power.
I’ve also had the pleasure of having Fauxlash send me lashes to do looks with! This was the perfect opportunity to use the Dev* lashes (OMG I wanted these so bad and was thrilled to have them sent to me!). I mean, it was PERFECT! They are so rock and roll, just like Lila! And they were made for the singer Dev so it was natural they would be great for Lila as well (Check her out wearing them in her video for “In the Dark“.)! So there will also be a mini review on them in this post.
Also, Faith, owner of Evil Pawn Jewelry, has been a dear friend of mine for some years now and was kind enough to bestow one of her Demonia* necklaces on me! So I decided to wear it and her Crystal Cameo Skull Ring (Limited Edition!) I purchased with this look. They are a perfect addition to anyone’s wardrobe and her jewelry is very high quality and show stoppers! Definitely worth the investment! The lightening bolt earrings I bought at Pursebuzz’s booth at IMATS LA.

Lashes: Faux Lash Dev Lashes. (Mini Review: They are a mix of brown and black, which give them that mink look. These lashes weren’t very heavy at all. They felt like I had a pair of double lashes on. They are also well made, and the studs are glued on pretty well. The lash band isn’t too thick, which I liked because I don’t care for lash bands that are too thick. I feel that, if the utmost care, these lashes could be reused multiple times. I honestly couldn’t tell you how many, but they are made well enough that they are pretty durable. They lived up to my standards and I really like them. Will definitely be my go to lashes for going out to a club!)
