Mooky Sartorial Mission Project?


Recently I've been feeling a lot of nostalgia for The Secret Girls' Brigade, and I've been wishing that we'd kept it up because it was a really cool project, and I don't know if anyone else has this, but I quite often think I have a really great outfit, and then have nowhere to document it! Then I read Candy's amazing blog post about secret cosplay and planning an outfit around a theme, I had an excellent idea- wouldn't it be fun if we had a mooky OOTD thread or blog where we set briefs around outfit themes? I dunno, I just think it would be pretty cool if we could see how each of us might convey a message, whether that be secret cosplay or concepts like gender identity or political ideals. I reckon it would be really cool to see 5 different people express something like "feminism" or "I was dressed by my 5 year old self" through clothing.

This isn't very articulate or well formed, but does anyone else fancy doing something like this with me?

That sounds awesome! I sometimes do 'secret cosplay'. I went to work as Cersei Lannister for World Book Day. :)

That would be the coolest! I often feel the same way. Please can we make this a thing, yes?!

Iiih! Great idea! I already do this within lolita fashion, with a lot of other lolitas on websites dedicated to this, but it'll be awesome to do this with other styles as well!

I'd love to do this. Absolutely. Could we start posting some ideas for themes and then Charlie (if she would like to take charge) could pick the most appropriate and pull them out of a hat?

I'm glad other people also think this is cool! Are we going to keep it on here or make a blog? Are we going to have say, weekly themes (with as many people as are interested responding to the theme) or new themes for each post (i.e. last person to post picks the theme for the next post)?

Maybe people could submit theme ideas for each new project, and we'll vote? And I think we should have it on here. Or maybe on here AND a blog?

I do like the idea of having a blog, for those who want to share their pictures with others but don't want the world and his wife reading their mooky life? If I remember rightly, secret girls brigade had no mention of Mooky, and was essentially a separate jaunt done by mooks. I say this because I would like Tudor and my friends to see possibly pretty, probably ridiculous pictures of myself, but I would not want them to visit here.

And I agree with the voting, because we wouldn't want a theme that was impossible for everyone but the person who suggested it and therefore no one contributes. If something has a majority vote, you could safely assume that some people are able to do it.

Alright then! How long should one theme run for before we start a new one? Does anyone have any good ideas for our first theme?

^ A week may be too short, as people may only check mooky once a week and it does leave uniformed people at a loss because they may only have one or two days in which to dress to a theme, but may not have time. A month seems too long to me though. Perhaps a fortnight is a fair compromise? Or we could do a week, but have five themes posted at a time so people can have pictures ready for each week without needing to do the dressing up on a busy day.

I couldn't agree more since I'm incredibly paranoid about IRL people finding me on Mooky. So I guess a blog is a great idea.

I do have a (probably silly) question though. If I remember correctly, the secret girls' brigade was on Tumblr. I don't have a Tumblr account and know basically nothing about how blogs work. Do you need an account to post something or can you just add a picture to a specific page?

I also agree with Angels last post, a week is really short since we all have busy lives and creating a kick-ass outfit can take some time.

^ this is based on my shaky recollections of SGB, as I didn't end up taking part. But we had one account and all had the password for it, so we could post on our own. I'm sure that if you don't know how to use whatever we end up picking to base it on, you could send your pictures to someone else and they could pop them in for you.

Also, I totally think that the first theme should be 'I am dressed as my favourite book'. I don't mean a character, I mean the whole concept of the book, which should produce some interesting results.

I'm in I guess? It sounds fun but realistically, I don't know how much time I'm going to have to devote to such things. I guess I'll get a bit more freedom with how I dress on a day to day basis with the new job though.

This is the weirdest thing ever, because I have a 3 day holiday this week with partner away. I haven't had a holiday in solitude since FOREVER. I was going to suggest we all dress up as shitty DIY superheroes with things we find in our house, but wasn't sure what you would all think. If it fits the bill with the above, I will totally make it my mission tomorrow to dress up as a shitty superhero.

I'd like to say I'm in, but I don't have many clothes! I am definitely due a new wardrobe though, so I'll say if I get the job tomorrow I'm in!

So so far we have as potential first themes "superheroes" and "I am dressed as my favourite book". Three more and we'll poll it?
