Fancies is a Grapevine series where we highlight an individual with supreme style. Our latest subject is Sand Shark (22), a fashion student, cosplayer and costume-enthusiast.
Sand Shark is wearing:
- Tiny purple glitter top
- Fluffy jacket from Dolls Kill
- Skirt from TopShop
- Shoes from Dolls Kill
- The patch is from a con. It has Marina and The Diamonds lyrics on it.
Describe your style in 5 words: Colourful, glittery thot. That’s it.
Favourite stores in Reykjavík: It depends on the time of year. For example, I really enjoy that glitter-clothes become more popular around Christmas. I have really been liking the stuff at Zara and Júník right now because it’s all so sparkly. But there’s not a lot of stores here that sell the type of clothing that I really love. But I do love—when I go dark—Rokk & Rómantík.
Favourite piece: This pink furry jacket, and also my glitter shoes. Glitter is my love. Just pour some glitter on me and I’m good.
Something I would never wear: That’s a hard one. The colour yellow I don’t really like on me. I’ve seen other people pull it off, though. You know that Icelandic fashion mustard colour? No. Not gonna happen.
Lusting after: Right now, what I’m focusing all my energy into is getting my degree because I really want to go to school in the U.K. to become a costume technician. Making costumes and making dresses is where my passion lies. But I’m also lusting after biodegradable glitter to be easily accessible here.
