Twin Buns & Bionic Legs

 Dress - c/o Sheinside (sold out) | Socks - c/o Oasap (sold out) | shoes - c/o Yeswalker (sold out)

Needing opinions on these twin buns - yay or nay? I really need a cute, easy hairstyle that I am happy with while my hair is growing out, otherwise I'm going to just cut it short again (it's often too hard to stop myself when it's going through this awkward growth phase).
I suppose this is also a "Halloween" kind of outfit, though I must try to remind myself to wear black lipstick more often, anyway! I think that black lipstick goes really well with red hair. What do you think?

I thought I should do a more uplifting science piece today after my horrible Halloween facts, hehe. So don't worry - if you were scared by my last post, you don't need to skim through this one today.

Last month, the first thought-controlled bionic leg was attached to Zac Vawter, after his left leg needed to be amputated following a motorbike accident. I've talked about mind control and bionic devices before in June, but what happened here was a real advance on that story. When Zac Vawter thinks "I want to move my leg", his brain, doing its normal thing, sends an electric signal from the motor cortex, down the spine, and to the peripheral nerves in his right knee, which are picked up by electrodes in the bionic leg. And he walks.
The fake leg is so clever that Zac is even able to control certain parts of it. Say, if he wants to move his ankle, the "hamstring" mechanics on his fake leg contract, but not the rest of his leg. This allows his to walk basically seamlessly, which hasn't yet been possible in prosthetic limbs. Read more here.

I hope that you're all having a gorgeous day so far,

  7. I love those buns and they look great on you. I know how hard it is to get through that hair length without cutting it off, I was there a couple of times and last time somehow managed not to cut it and I'm so happy I didn't :)

  8. Oooh I love your knee socks and dress!

    Xo, Hannah

  11. Your hair is just too cute, definitely yay!! In the spirit of Halloween black lipstick seems to be more accepted but, it really should be for anytime of the year. :]

  12. I say YES to black lipstick with red hair... and green lipstick too! I've got my Serpentina from Limecrime yesterday and I wasn't sure how it would look... but it's amazing!

    it's so great how techonology is helping people to reorganize their lifes after an accident, I'm fascinated with how good science can be for us... I wish we would use it more often for good!

  13. I just started sporting a full fringe and I'm defo going to have to try this hairstyle :D Your dress is adorable too :) x

  14. It's a yay hairstyle from me

  15. Love it! I third the Wednesday Addams sentiment.

  18. This whole aesthetic is awesome, you look great! I think the buns are an adorable choice during the awkward phase.

  19. You look marvellous :) Love the whole outfit. This fake leg is fantastic, I like that they've advanced so much in this regards, this will make many people who have lost a limb feel so happy and more independent!! Super x

  20. Yay for modern medicine and technology! Before this year's MTV VMAs, twin buns would have been appropriately acceptable, but unfortunately, one cannot seen twin buns and not think of Miley Cyrus, at least in the states anyway.

    1. miley cyrus did twin buns? Eh, oh well, I couldn't care less about celebrities, and she sure doesn't own the hairstyle. I also don't really have a strong opinion about miley cyrus one way or the other so I don't mind that she wore her hair like that once :)

  21. Love the black lipstick and buns, goth meets Usagi Tsukino :D
