Feeling very electroclash in (another!) Mccall's M7722

I've made two more things in between this top -- ANOTHER Mccall's M7722 top! But I wanted to post this one 1st. This time I used lightning bolt fabric I had hanging around from adding random yardage to get free shipping. I made the open-sleeve cold shoulder version one in a few hours and I don't regret it. But it somehow ended up having a very "electroclash" feel. Anyone remember that trend in the early 2000s? It was a nod to 80s New Wave, but darker musically and a bunch of neon and lighting bolts. So I got real extra with my photos on purpose. See electroclash example below.  Trust me... there was also lots of lighting bolts too. I feel like the height of electroclash was maybe 2005ish (could be wrong) but I remember places in Chicago like Medusa's Circle carrying lots of electoclash-ish garb back then as well as the neon makeup. Not much else to say about this top except enjoy my wacky photos! Haha.
