The Neon Genesis Lookbook

Via the Anime Jinsei

Heya there!

I think it’s long overdue that I create a mini lookbook inspired by one of my fav anime series. While I’m not totally versed in the Neon Genesis Evangelion universe, I’m a sucker for its vintage, outdated aesthetic. I decided to just focus on the three main characters: Shinji, Asuka, and Rei. Honestly, I could go further and ensemble some looks for Misato, Ritsuko, or even Kaworu- but hey, all the more for Halloween, right?

For this project, I wanted to emphasize the color palettes for each of the characters: white, being Shinji; blue, being Rei, and yellow being Asuka. I feel like most Neon Gen lookbooks usually cater to blacks, bright greens, purples, and oranges- which totally makes sense. After all, our main protagonist controls an Angel dressed in the same hues. On top of that, other designer collections- such as UNDERCOVER and Yohji Yamamoto’s Ground Y- have also styled their ideas around this color palette- but I wanted to do something a bit different.

Without further ado, here is my lookbook!
