Ash Costello’s “Fuck You You Fucking Fuck” t-shirt is inspired by the one that Lisbeth Salander wears in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. You can buy one like it on Amazon ($13.95). You can get spiked denim cutoff shorts like hers at Forever 21 or Urban Outfitters ($29.99). Ash bought her mock suspender tights on eBay (around $6.00 to $12.00).
The latest episode of Ash Costello “Rockonista” web series takes us shopping with her at Lip Service’s Los Angeles warehouse. Lip Service has lines catered to many different alternative subcultures including lolita, cyber, and industrial clothing; but most of Ash’s picks come from the “Black Steam” collection of Victorian steampunk-inspired clothes.
Ash explains this outfit:
It’s very steampunk-inspired. Steampunk has been around for a while kind of in the underground, and I feel like right now it’s just starting to make it into the mainstream. Lip Service has really found a creative way to take steampunk in everyday wear — something you could wear to school, or to clubs, concerts, DisneyLand like I would. And I love it. I love that [the skirt] has the key detail, it’s very steampunk, and the brown distressed leather. This is something that I would wear all the time. And to top it all off I have my Sideshow by the Sea necklace. I love bats and anything gothy and dark like that is just awesome to me. So it pulls the whole thing together.
What she’s wearing:
All of Ash’s clothes are from Lip Service. She wears the BlackList Black Lace Top ($41.50) with the Step in Time Underbust Top ($98.00) over it. Her skirt is the Step in Time Lace Layered Skirt ($65.00) and the tights are the Ripped Net Pantyhose ($9.00). Her bat necklace is the La Mia Bella Morte Necklace from Sideshow by the Sea ($35.00).
