What inspires me? Well, quite a lot, really, and depending on the event it can take months of prep. ::cough cough:: ILD! ::cough cough:: Rufflecon!
A particular piece is usually what draws my inspiration and always makes me want to get crazy with coord ideas. For instance, Funeral Rose Procession from Aatp makes me want to get pieces that are gauzy, scoop neck, blouses and floral headdresses adorned with roses and calla lilies and chrysanthemums with a viel. And the idea of pairing it with tights that remind me of a serene cemetery print that would be so cool! Alas, I think I will need to make those but I've been looking for colors to use for it.
What really inspires me is oftentimes, with meet~ups, where we are headed out to and the type of day we should be having. In general it depends on the day, the weather being cold and grey could lead to darker hues, and bright and sunny perhaps would bring out a more summery look; however, that's only a small variable in what inspires me for a meet.
If we are going for a location like a museum or out to view artwork I tend to get ideas of coordinating within a theme around maybe a particular piece in association with the venue. Finding pieces in my wardrobe to kind of have a link, whether just a small touch of it or going full on theme coord, is quite fun.
