Behind the Scenes - Snakebite
Have you ever wondered what goes on in LoveCats head? The story behind some of your favorite outfits? Now you can get a sneak peek into the world of LoveCats with this special blog exclusive interview about one of the latest LoveCats Neko Shop & Mall design; Snakebite!
What inspired you to create this latest design?
I get so many requests for country inspired neko. It is one of the most requested items.. so I thought I would give it a go.
What was the hardest part of the outfit to design?
Getting an overall look that appealed to me, keeping it neko but something that could be worn by non-nekos as well.
What was the easiest part of the outfit to deisgn?
The chaps, had fun with those :D
You went with kitty boots instead of a classic cowboy boot; how come?
Since the requests have been for 'neko' country... I tried to stick with that but come up with a design that could easily be worn by non-nekos. I figured most of us already have some cowboy boots in our closets.. but who has snakeskin fringed boomers?
What music did you listen to while designing Snakebite, if any?
Truthfully I don't listen to country at all *ducks* I think on my playlist at the time was some deftones, sublime, Bob Marley, some dubstep mixes and techno.
So does this mean you're a little bit country and I get to be a little bit rock and roll?
Hehe. I think you can be whatever you want in this outfit. I did think a lot about 80's rock and growing up in a very small town when I was making this. While I've outgrown my small town roots- some nostalgia definitely went into this outfit. I hope its fun for you too!
Anything else you'd like to mention about this outfit?
I think this is a good one for country fans and those who aren't as well. I like the versatility of the layers and I like the different looks you can get by adding heels or taking off the jacket, I think it would be hot with a little tee too.
Any hints to your next amazing creation?
I'm in the mood for spring.. and Easter. So expect some more bunny costumes lol
