The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood: Total Breakdown



Yes, I very much appreciate you sticking that pointy object so dangerously close to my face.

Haha, well hello world! Today, I'm going to do a breakdown of one of my favorite Amy outfits of all time!

So, without further adieu...

THE HUNGRY EARTH/COLD BLOOD





So let's get started. As per usual, Amy's got the whole layering thing going on. Jacket over v-neck over cami over shorts over tights.

She has her "famous" (not really) brown leather bomber jacket on and the very common red-ish v-neck.

I'll talk about the jacket first. It's brown leather and obviously, finding an authentic jacket similar to this wouldn't take much time, but it would be expensive. A good way to make the outfit your own would be to put on a natural colored hoodie of your own. Something brown, black or gray would work. If you really want to stick to the original, you can find some cheaper versions in some store and on Amazon.com.



For the Americans:







If you're willing to splurge, here's one at Zumiez for a $99.00











And here's another one at Zumiez for $59.99













Here's one at Amazon from Knoles & Carter for $59.99













As you can can see, they tend to run very expensive. So check stores like Wal-Mart and Target first to see if you can score a deal. Amazon also has some good brands at cheaper prices if you don't mind sifting through a bunch of pages.



And for the Brits:




I couldn't get a good image of it, but here's one from Marks and Spencer for £65.00












This one, at linkety link is a whopping £430.00, but I just thought it was cute to look at ;)



I really like this one on awear.com despite it being a black biker jacket. It's a good substitute. ^_^ It's £55.00.








Onto the V-neck! V-necks are pretty easy, you can find plain ones in all different colors at basically any store. You could also wear a scoop-neck tee instead. I've mentioned before that Amy wears a lot of these, so you could wear one in any color if you want!

For the Americans:




 This one is a pretty close match at just $9.00











 Here is a similar scoop neck tee in purple for $4.80 at Forever 21.













Here's a good one from LL.Bean for $17.00








For the Brits:





Found this one at House of Fraser for £24.50. It's a scoop neck, but it's a good substitute.









 This one here is very similar, at House of Fraser for £25.00









Like I said, V-necks are easy, so don't sweat it. You can find super cheap substitutes for under $12.00 at most general stores.


Under the V-neck is a mute grey cami or tank of some sort that peeks out from underneath and just at the top of it. you can find these cheap anywhere, so I'm only posting a couple examples.




You can get both of these for $8.00 at Wal-mart















For £6 at awear.com











Black shorts for also fairly simple to find. Just some black denim short shorts or just darkwash if you don't feel like looking.

For Americans:







These cute shorts are $24.00 at TopShop.














  At Forever 21, these twill short shorts are $9.80











These here are a close match for $13.00 at JCPenney.








For Brits:







 At House of Fraser these are £30.00













Here are some cute denim shorts at uniqlo.com.





The tights are simple black tights (not the opaque kind) that you probably have lying around the house or can find cheap at any general store. To finish off the look, Amy wears her usual gold rectangle watch and cowboy boots which you can find at any shoe store (thought they're usually expensive :( ) or maybe even score them cheap at a Wal-Mart, Target, or Goodwill. Don't forget your "A" initial necklace and you're done!

Hope that all helped, since it was pretty in-depth XD. Have fun putting your outfit/cosplay together and good luck!!!
