Live Loud by ScarletteDiscord Live Loud by ScarletteDiscord
This idea has been rattling around in my head for a while so I figured I'd take this holiday break to do something for myself after doing nothing but graded projects while also giving you guys something other than my schoolwork ^^;

It was earlier this year, but when passing by our local American Eagle Outfitters store (basically a bit pricey clothing store with a focus on retro/vintage styling for those of you not familiar with the brand :)) and noticed the tagline "Live Loud" that they were using for that seasons marketing campaigne. It immediately clicked in my head that it would be a perfect fit for Alfred, as a tagline, motto, poignant description, what-have-you, lol XD Not to mention that the words "America", "American", and "eagle" make up the name and they have the eagle as a logo, why would it not make sense for him to at least be a little partial to the brand! ;) I also happen to be a fan of both so this is just me fangirling twice as hard (can you fangirl over a clothing brand?)

Anyway, for the pic, Alfred's outfit is based off of real clothes from the brand, the shirt and boots for sure. Even his pose came from one of the models in the fall/winter campaigne. So yep, I went all out for this one *smug face* But it was nice to do this just to take a break for a while. Once the semester has officially ended I'll be around more often, so maybe consider this a teaser...maybe?

To those of you out there celebrating, have a Happy Thanksgiving and stuff yourselves like Americans! Make Alfred proud! XD lol

Aw, he's so precious. <3 Their slogan really does fit him. And he just looks so happy! (AE is one of the clothing stores I don't mind shopping in. They usually have really nice stuff, like the outfit you gave him. :D)

Thanks! :) Yes, their slogan is oddly appropriate for him which is why this happened, lol :D (I really wish I could shop there more often, their vintage inspired pieces are just lovely~ )

Welcome. :iconnewhugplz: Yeah, when I saw him rockin' those new clothes, I was like ":iconshockplz: Doth mine eyes deceive me? Did Scarlette actually do some new art?! :faint:" ;p (I LOVE BOOTS. :heart: The stylish kind, usually, but I don't draw normal boots very well, so I bow to your boot-drawing skills. :worship:)

I really LOVE this whole *waves arms about in expansive gestures* ensemble/style/EVERYTHING! I love how you saw the ad, and visualized where you could take it, and how perfectly you captured it all together in ONE *more hand gestures* perfect moment of a picture! (this comment would make more sense if you could see my gestures) This is definitely a favorite!

Thank you! Yeah, the pose was so Alfred I just had to use it ^^

Sweden and H&M, huh? That would be cool to see :D Although there's no H&M near me I do love their clothes! And Sweden looks good in anything, I believe, him and his tallness and dead serious model face XD

This is fantastic. I do have a soft spot for AE Outfiters and Alfred perfectly hits the spot in this. It really does all scream him doesn't it? Probably his favorite store.

Thank you! Oh, I have to walk in that store at least once if I'm out shopping (even if I can't afford the pieces I want ;_;) and I agree that it has to be one of his favorite brands to wear. Almost makes you wonder how much of an influence he might have had in its making XD

Oh he looks neat in that. I have an American Eagle hoodie its kind of weird wearing it since I'm Canadian, mind you I have my patriotic mitts to make up for it ;)

Thanks! :) You know, I've always wondered if it feels weird as a Canadian to wear American Eagle merchandise (my mind takes weird turns, I know, lol) and what store would be its equivalent. But I agree the mittens more than make up for it :D (Despite it being too warm for them here, I've always wanted a pair, they just look so awesome!)

You're welcome :). Somewhat, but I don't pay enough attention to the outfit to care beyond the initial irony (I probably misused the word, poor word gets misused a lot). Well HBC (The Bay, whatever they call themselves), and Zellars (though there getting bought out by Target :(), were the ones that carried the mitts. Oh not cold enough for mittens in November, oh right geography. I always thought people were joking as a little kid when they said some places didn't have snow in the winter (until I saw Vancouver in the winter, Vancouver always trips me up, because even the towns around it like Chilliwack will be like the rest of the place cold in the winter, and hot in the summer, but it isn't so I've been astonished at their lack of snow, and just this summer nearly freezed since I just had skirts, and shorts no pants or even leggings to go under the skirt). But yes they are awesome :).
