skygiants: Nice from Baccano! in post-explosion ecstasy (maybe too excited . . .?)
It's the first night of Hanukkah, also Christmas Eve! Normally at this time I would be prepping to go to New York for the traditional Chinese food and a movie, but I have had too much travel this year and yet more coming up, so instead I am home on my couch with Chinese food, and that is also pretty OK.

Meanwhile, as we wait for the Yuletide archive to open, seems like it's a good time for another costume poll!

Last time, we actually ended up with a neck and neck tie between the two wardrobe extremes of Jeremy, a complicated man who contains multitudes:





The people love Prince Jeremy! The people also love weird yellow plaid-skirted hobo Jeremy.

But will the people also love ...

In last week's resurrected You're Beautiful costume polls, our favorite crossdressing nun Go Mi Nam pulled out her very first victory. The audience has spoken: the elfin poncho of woe is this winter's must-have accessory!



Congratulations, Go Mi Nam, and enjoy your victory while you rest on your laurels this episode; you earned it.

skygiants: Na Yeo Kyeung, from Capital Scandal, giving a big thumbs-up (seal of approval)
Some of you who were around here in 2011 may remember when I used to do tv fashion costume polls. I got all the way through sixteen episodes of my beloved flora-fedora-filled Capital Scandal and six episodes into You're Beautiful, the kdrama featuring a nun who joins the world's most amazingly-dressed boyband, before grad school proved to be enough of a timesuck that I gave up.

Well, it is a dark time, friends, and as a result, I have been rewatching You're Beautiful with [personal profile] tenillypo, and AS A RESULT, I think it is time -- half a decade later! -- that I finish what I began five years ago, because I personally feel I could use some quality time with some really astounding fashion and I'm guessing I'm not the only one.

Let me start by catching you up on the winners of the first six You're Beautiful costume polls. )

So ... now that you all have a sense of what you can expect, who's ready to THROW DOWN with You're Beautiful, episode 7?

Sometimes, the best answer for homework stress is brain candy YA fiction. Sometimes, it's AMAZING KDRAMA COSTUMES!

So last time we had a You're Beautiful costume poll, He Yi narrowly edged ahead of the other competitors in her super-stylish bling:



But this round, it's a Capital Scandal flashback as we rock the AWESOME HEADGEAR.

Last time we had a You're Beautiful episode, Stylist Wang came away with yet another landslide victory in her stunningly accessorized pile of plaid ruffles:



But this week, I really think it's anybody's game! I should also note that it is perfectly legal to vote on ridiculous hair.

Last time, Jeremy swept the You're Beautiful polls with a nearly neck-and-neck tie between two outfits, both alike in hilarity! But in the end, I think the victor speaks for itself.





This week, the ladies once again take a turn to display their sense of creativity and style! Or . . . well, at least creativity. DEFINITELY THAT.

Man, it has been ages since I have done one of these! . . . it is also the first time I am screencapping while in an apartment with roommates, which means that there are other people to hear and verify how I burst into giggles every single time I take a screencap. OH WELL.

Anyway, last time, Stylist Wang swept the competition in her very stylish hat:



And it seems that this week she is resting on her laurels, leaving the field free for Jeremy to take us on a journey into the neon pink depths of his soul!

Okay, guys - you had your chance to stop me, and since I have received no outcries of "PLEASE STOP TORMENTING US" it looks like Costume Polling: Electric Boogaloo is a go! I decided to go with You're Beautiful, otherwise known as the one where a nun joins a boyband since I already had some episodes downloaded. (Though I will probably be alternating every so often with an episode of The Golden Girls when I don't have time to go through a full hour-long episode loking for sartorial gems.)

However as soon as I opened up episode 1 of You're Beautiful I had cause to question my decision, because - man, guys, narrowing it down to five even from this one episode was SO HARD. I am one hundred percent spoiled for choice! The pickings are too easy!



THE PLAID SUIT JACKET OF CROSS-DRESSING DID NOT EVEN MAKE THE TOP FIVE. That is how hard this decision was!

Obedient to my promise, I did what you guys told me and spent my weekend marathoning You're Beautiful. For the amazingly terrible and glorious assault on fashion, good taste and sanity that follows, therefore, you have only yourselves to blame.




How do you solve a problem like Go Mi Nyu?



Obviously, you disguise her as her rising pop-star ~identical twin brother~ - exiled for a month to America to heal from embarrassingly botched cosmetic eye surgery - and make her join a boyband.

It's just like The Sound of Music, except with more cross-dressing, screaming fanclubs, internal slashfic, and fakeout incest.

LENGTHY PICSPAM UNDER THE CUT. )

SO. THAT HAPPENED. (I found out about the show, by the way, from this amazing picspam by [livejournal.com profile] darkeyedwolf, which is ten times more hysterical than mine. I can now vouch for it that every word is true.)
