Hello darlings, it’s that time again! Happy #rtcommunityday to you all! Are you wearing your Rooster Teeth merch today? If you are, remember to tag @ailsarocks on the site or use hashtag #rtcommunityday on Twitter.
Today I thought I’d style the next #RTBOX exclusive shirt. This box is University themed and was put together by Gus. Here’s what we got in this box:
- Rooster Teeth Media Club tee
- Double Gold patch
- Beacon Academy pin
- Achievement Hunter pennant (those triangle flag things)
- Michael Jones Rage Quit bottle opener
- Official Rooster Teeth University red cup
- Collectible Card #6 (20% signed by a member of Funhaus)
- Note from Gus
I was a little disheartened to see that the shirt was white, as that’s probably the shirt colour I wear the very least, but the design is cute and has subtle nods to Rooster Teeth and its roots!
This shirt, like last month’s one, has a relaxed casual retro feel to it. One of my favourite subjects when I studied at university was Video Production, so I tried to think back then what I wore. I remember vividly having to be first and foremost practical in my clothing, as I was carrying around some very heavy and expensive equipment most of the time, as well as having to be ready to travel just about anywhere last minute. Being behind the camera meant that I could dress more casually than the folks who were in front of it. So, in keeping with my own media study roots, I styled this tucked in (so it wouldn’t snag on any equipment) with my high waisted jeggings (with RWBY patches!) and my very worn in white converse. If you’d like to be slightly more trend aware, swap the skinny high waisters for wide legs and converse for skate shoes with a luxe material like leather or with a bit of shine or sparkle. My makeup for media days was always simple and long wearing (as I would probably sweat it all off carrying cameras and lighting all day). To smarten this look up a little, throw on a black structured jacket over the top. Then you’re good to use your Rooster Teeth bottle opener and red cup for drinks later!
So that’s my take on this month’s shirt! How do you like to wear it? Please share your tips for what you like to wear with your RT merch too, as well as any tips for other media students out there!
Thanks for reading and as always,

So the Vacation themed #RTBox put together by @burnie was genuinely awesome! I'm pretty sure I'll use all of the useful things included this month.
- Note from Burnie.
- Funhaus souvenir-style shirt
- 2 x "Burns Airlines Frequent Flyer" packing cubes
- People Like Grapes shirt Car Air Freshener
- Immersion waterproof phone case bag
- Rooster Teeth postcards
- Camp Camp collectable card (1 in 5 signed by the cast & crew)
- Game Code for Party Hard
I loved the retro-vacation theme of the box and tried to have a retro, relaxed look when styling the shirt for RTCommunityDay:
I paired mine with a casual cotton orange skirt and black pleated leather belt. The grey, orange and yellow is a really gorgeous nostalgic combination which just screams 'long hot summers'.
My orange steampunk goggle sunglasses have been getting some serious mileage whenever I put together a Funhaus outfit! Another easy 'hack' to a killer summer vacay look is a simple swipe of orange lipstick. The best thing is, pair it with navy and you're already on trend for heading in the Autumn/Winter season!
As for footwear, simple sneakers, converse or light plimsolls are great casual options. I also liked using my Immersion phone case as a small bag for my keys and money when I went out too.
How did you style this RT Box shirt? Were you as impressed with the box as I was? Let me know!
Have fun and be safe this RTCommunityDay, and as always:

Hello darlings, hope you're having a lovely and happy #rtcommunityday today! Which piece of RT Merch are you rocking today?
So once again, my #RTBOX hasn't arrived in time for RTCommunityDay... and I styled the previous shirt last month... so I've decided to style the shirt before it. The #RTBOX exclusive RWBY Chibi shirt.
I hate to say it but at first glance this was probably my least favourite shirt we've got out of the #RTBOX. The strange mint/turquoise coupled with fuchsia pink was an odd choice... but when I decided to take up the challenge and style it I learned to really love the colour clash! I wanted to avoid trying to pair this shirt with anything black as the temperature is rising (even in Scotland!). White is not a colour/shade I ever really wear, but when I matched this RWBY Chibi shirt with white jeans, I was converted!! I loved really experimenting with colour and pattern, and I think the Desigual scarf and turquoise bracelet (top right) were cute additions. I popped on a pair of white sunglasses to match in with the white theme too. Perhaps some silver,white gold, turquoise or pink sapphire jewellery would bring this outfit up a notch for going out to dinner? Shoes wise? I went for some pink sneakers, but some cute converse or vans would be great too. And to jazz it up a little, swap out for some silver toned sandals, or pink courts!
As for the lipsticks, I had fun with my favourite pink shades to make the pink on the shirt really pop! All shades are by Urban Decay (my other obsession). Top one is Ex-Girlfriend, a nude rose with pink shimmer; which is a great one for lipstick beginners as it's not too out there but at the same time adds a little something. The middle shade is Firebird, which is a gorgeous deep fuchsia cream (not for the feint-hearted!) and the bottom shade which I wore is Big Bang: a bright pink sparkle with enough glitter to take your face from cute to bloody fabulous with one swipe.
So there you have it! This shirt isn't half as bad as I thought! Being able to put myself out of my comfort zone and wear colours I don't usually reach for was really refreshing! I hope you like the look and you're inspired to try colour clashing or trying out new colours too!
If you are rocking Rooster Teeth merch today, remember to tag me here on the site @ailsarocks or @RTisFashionable over on Twitter.

Hello dears! It's that time again where I wish you all a very happy #RTCommunityDay! Are you wearing your RT Merch today? Going to a community event? Whatever you're up to, I hope you have a lovely day!
So yes, I skipped to the May #RTBox as it arrived in better time. If you'd like me to do a look/review for the April one please let me know via DM or comment or whatever, I'd be happy to! So, this box included:
- Camp Camp Space kid t-shirt
- Camp Camp song metal plate
- RWBY Yang eye glasses
- Gavin nose "Loser" tattoo decal
- Naked Gus Pin
- No Wet Bread towel
- RWBY Chibi Collectable Card (1 in 5 signed)
- Camp Campbell card with letter from Miles.
This was certainly an interesting box, with new ideas for products being introduced. If I'm honest I won't really be using any of the items from this box too much, as much as folks complained about the pens that's the things I use the most (other than the shirts of course!). The quality of this shirt wasn't as great as previous ones (RT usually prints on Anvil brand shirts or American Apparel) but this one is like the heavy cotton of the old style shirts. Not important to some, but something that is pretty noteworthy to me! Anyways, onto how I styled it for RTCommunityDay!
Since the shirt is blue and white, I wanted to continue that theme throughout. I really love this colour combo as it's perfect to keep cool in summer with floaty linens but can also be smartened up for a dinner date or work! If you're going casual, pair with your trusty white converse all stars. I also liked adding a few space-themed temporary tattoos, as well as my Lazer Team dog tags and some moonrock-grey nails to complete the subtle nod to the space camp style! For more spacey ideas, add some silver accessories, or a seriously cool pair of silver brogues! YES MORE SHINEY ok I should go lie down...
How did you wear this shirt? Show me or let me know by tagging me here @ailsarocks or @RTFashionable on Twitter.
But remember, be proud to wear it YOUR way! I hope you all have another lovely RTCommunityDay.

Hello loves! Happiest #rtcommunityday to you all! Are you hanging out with other community folks today, or just having a day to yourself catching up with videos? Whatever you're up to, I hope you're representing if you can!
My April #RTBOX has just come through the door as I write this, it was really late this month! So I prepared this look instead, and it's one of my personal go-to looks for going out for a few bevs or going into town to meet friends. It involves wearing one of my newer favourites, and one I think any AH fan should invest in: the varsity jacket.
My favourite combination of colours to wear at the moment are tan brown and black. The pairing of the two emanate a certain effortless luxury that can be adapted to many styles. I like to add a little attitude to my look whenever possible so the leather sleeves of the varsity jacket are great for this. Adding leather boots and a few gold accessories finish this look off easily. For a more street style, swap jeans for chinos and boots for some slick sneakers. To dress it up, add more gold and more leather
And of course to really set this look apart from the rest, adding the Achievement Hunter Green will stop this look from just being a few neutrals to something really fun. When the weather gets a bit cooler (and where I am it does regularly) I like to throw on a lightweight scarf, it's the Achievement Hunter one or one that follows the tan and black theme.
But of course, this is your look, so experiment and have fun with it! Wear the AH varsity jacket your way! Remember to show me your looks by tagging me here @ailsarocks or @RTisFashionable / #rtcommunityday on Twitter!
Look out for an article soon reviewing the April #RTBOX shirt, and also my thoughts on some of the new RT Store additions!
As always, stay fashionable and Happy #rtcommunityday.

How'd y'all do? Did you have fun with whatever you did on #rtcommunityday
I ran into a gut who made the brave decision to wear a Fun Haus shirt in a Lego Store. THERE WERE CHILDREN THERE!
Here's some pictures of me rock'n some merch appropriate for the birthday month.
And as per usual I selected a short RT video that should be fun to watch.
Why not the extent of my knowledge of Mass Effect?
Anyway, it was pretty cool for me, I hope you had a good time too.

Hello dears! Happy #RTCommunityDay to you all! I hope you are having a wonderful day, whether you're going to a community meet up, having a game night with your community friends or are just having a day wearing your RT merch to celebrate!
My March #RTBox was a little late, but it still arrived in time to wear the shirt for RT Community Day! The March RTBox was a good one! Here's a list of what we got:
- A friendly note from Geoff (with lovely art on the back)
- A Funhaus stress ball
- Achievement Hunter earbud headphones
- Red vs Blue notepad and matching pen
- Rooster Teeth 14th Anniversary tshirt
- Sex Swing sticker
- Card #2 of 12 (1 in 5 Signed by an Achievement Hunter)
I'm a big fan of this box because I'll get use out of everything in it. As much as I loved last month's box, I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of a shot glass necklace. BUT YOU NEVER KNOW!
So back to the shirt at hand. The Rooster Teeth 14th Anniversary shirt could possibly be one of my new favourites! The design is beautiful, subtle and intricate. At first glance you see the words Rooster Teeth surrounded by swirly white and gold patterns, but on closer inspection you will see fun little references to Rooster Teeth's hilarious past moments.
Here's how I styled mine:
I really love this shirt because black and gold is one of my all time favourite combinations to wear. It oozes an air of luxuriousness while at the same time being effortlessly stylish. Black and gold is always a trend aware combination and is a favourite at festival season in the summer. Right now, I'm having to wear a lot of my "transeasonal" pieces, so my long waterfall cardigan is getting a lot of wear at the moment. One minute the sun is out and it's quite warm and the next the snow starts! Waterfall cardi's are great because when it's warm you can just let them fall open, and when it's cooler you can belt them on pin them in a bunch of different ways to keep out the cold.
Another favourite tactic of mine is to mix textures and patterns. The cardigan is a silk/wool mix in a herringbone pattern, and my leggings have a subtle art nouveau pattern too to add a little luxury to the look. Have fun experimenting with different patterns and textures and of course have fun matching your black/gold shirt. Remember, dress to excess!
So there we have it! Another RTBox done! Did you like the shirt we got this month? Did you get your card signed by any of the AH crew? Let me know in the comments!
And as always, please tag me on the site @ailsarocks or tag @RTisFashionable on Twitter to let me see your Rooster Teeth style!
Stay Fashionable ;)

Hello lovelies! Happiest #merchmarch #RTCommunityDay to you all! A massive shoutout to all of you who have been taking part in the #merchmarch Challenge, you all look amazing and it's been lovely to meet new community members and see your awesome RT style! I'm delighted to see so many both here and on Twitter taking part, keep it up we're halfway there!
But now, to the latest RT Box! This one was Mardi Gras themed! Here's an inventory list of what we got in this month's box:
- Mardi Gras themed note from Jack, complete with a fancy poem.
- Mardi Gras Masquerade themed Achievement Hunter Shirt.
- Funhaus Goblet cup.
- Game Attack shot glass necklace.
- Rooster Teeth hot/cold heart shaped pack.
- Double Gold Star wristbands.
- #1 Rooster Teeth Gold Card (1 in 5 Signed by Matt Hullum).
- Orcs Must Die Unchained Game Code.
Now Mardi Gras isn't a festival celebrated too much in the UK so I had to research a bit into it. Mardi Gras was on Tuesday, the 28th of February, so by the time I got the RT Box it was already too late. However, with the shirt being a bit wacky and green, I thought that it would be perfect for any St Patrick's Day parties coming up! St Patrick's Day is this Friday the 17th March so here's a potential outfit style to rock while you're knocking back the Guinness!
Like I said last RT Community Day, I like to experiment with colour, and this month is no different. Looking at the shirt, it combines bright green with a rusty orange, as well as splashes of black and white. So I wanted to continue and expand upon this rust and green theme, adding in some texture and pattern for some additional style points as well as using the black and white as the foundations to this look. Rust and green is usually one of my favourite combinations for autumn, however to give it a spring twist, use bright or pastel versions of Autumn's more muted tones. I used a loose waterfall style coverup to keep this look comfy and relaxed, though do feel free to smarten up the look with a more structured, perhaps blazer style cover up. And if you're off to a party, remember: dress to excess!
I can't wait to see the green-themed looks popping up on Friday or thereabouts. Remember, if you want to take part in the #merchmarch Challenge, take a picture with you in your RT Merch and tag me here on the RT Site @ailsarocks or tag either me or RT is Fashionable over on Twitter. Don't forget to use the #merchmarch hashtag too!
As always my dears: Stay Fashionable

Hello dears! I hope you are all keeping well! You all looked bloody gorgeous last #rtcommunityday, keep up the fashionableness!
So holy crap, it's March again already! It really doesn't feel like that long ago that I started writing these features for RT. You shoulda seen my wee face light up when I got the Funhaus Collection in my clutches! Since then, we've celebrated a whole year of Rooster Teeth taking a whole new stylish outlook on their merchandise.
As a community, I thought that once again, we should celebrate the diversity of not just the amazing Rooster Teeth merch but also how each of us choose to wear it. I will be undertaking the self-invented Merch March Challenge, where every day this month I will wear a piece from Rooster Teeth's vast merch collection. Why not join me?
Now here's the cool part! As Merch March was so popular last year, anyone who either tags me on the Rooster Teeth site (that's @ailsarocks) or uses the #MerchMarch on Twitter will be automatically entered into a draw to win a $/£ 20 Rooster Teeth Store Gift Card! There's more than one Gift Card to be won so get posting!
And of course the more you post pics for the Merch March Challenge, the more chance you'll have of winning! Don't worry if you only have one RT shirt, why not see how many different ways you can style it with things in your wardrobe?
Here's my picture for Day One of the Merch March Challenge, to see all of my other entries, keep an eye on my Twitter page (also @ailsarocks).
Today I was at work so had to make my merch look extra stylish so I layered my all time favourite piece, the Funhaus Wordmark Sweatshirt over a orange rust coloured Gucci dress. Got to dress to excess dahliiiing!
So enjoy yourself, be creative and as always,

Hello loves! Happiest #RTCommunityDay to you all! I hope you are spending it either watching some RT vids, meeting up with community friends or 'repping with your RT merch! As usual, all you total babes over on twitter look amaziiiing!
So after the lovey-dovey-ness of Valentines Day yesterday, I thought I would go in the complete opposite direction! I wanted this RTCommunityDay to represent, but also to bring the sass, bring the attitude, and look hot, but for myself dammit!
The classic Rooster Teeth red and black is one of my favourite combinations, as it is so versatile. Today, as I'm heading out for drinks soon, I wanted to dress to impress... myself ;)
The Rooster Teeth Halloween shirt showed off my levels of sass perfectly... looking cute was the last thing I wanted to achieve with this look! Adding points, spikes, studs and leather amps up the attitude but still looks hotttt! Remember my advice from yesterday about clashing textures too. I paired my RT shirt with a skirt with braces, Black Milk do a great dress version that is perfect for showing off your RT shirt:
I kept my accessories simple, some pointy black sparkly heels, and some RT slap bands of course! Smokey eyes, a red gloss and red nails were a must too. It's really fun to experiment with takes on Rooster Teeth's classic red and black palette. It proves that classic can be edgy! Try out your own sassy and sexy looks! You go girl!
So there we have it, my apologies for not featuring the latest #RTBOX but there was no shirt in it! I KNOW. My fingers are crossed for next month!
I hope you have an amazing RTCommunityDay, I know I will ;)
Stay Fashionable <3

Hello my dears! Happy Valentine's Day to you all! I hope you're having a good one, whether you're all loved up and being totally spoilt by your significant other, or, like me, you're having a quiet one in eating chocolate and watching RT videos!
I thought I'd do a quick wee article on what I'd be wearing on a Valentine's Day date night (if anyone had asked me... *cries*):
One of my favourite things to do with outfits is challenge the "fashion rules". Wearing red and green together seems to be one of these rules and I think it should be smashed!
Whether it's a burgundy red or a more orangey red, they are all a great contrast to green. For spring, I chose to pair my Rooster Teeth Lightweight Scarf with a lime green vintage diamond zig zag print dress. Lime green is one of THE colours this season, and for extra fashion points, pairing it with a coral-red or mustard is *double thumbs up*. I would have loved to have worn a Funhaus Lightweight Scarf with this look too *heavy hints to the RT Store*.
Print clashing has stayed firmly in the trends too, and if you want to, you can clash textures too, like suedes, leathers and silks together.
Makeup and accessories should be carefully chosen as to not take the look too far. I broke the red into three parts: at the top with the scarf, in the middle with my nails and at the bottom with my shoes. I think any more would have been too much. But go with whatever's good for you! I stayed fairly covered up, but you could always show off a flash of red lacey bra or I know for a fact that red lippie with lime would give your Valentine's look a real sexy edge! Experiment your own way mixing lime and red!
In any case, I hope you all have a wonderful day, whether you're celebrating or not! And remember, it's #rtcommunityday tomorrow, so mind and look out your favourite Rooster Teeth merch and represent!
Stay Fashionable ;)

Hello lovelies! Happy #RTCommunityDay to all! I hope you've had a great one. Did you hang out with some RT Community buds? Well whatever you're up to, I hope you are all rocking your Rooster Teeth merch your own amazing way! If you want some style inspo... or even some style info, read on!
So I'm not going to review the November #RTBOX I'm afraid. It arrived the day before my December one and it was well past Christmas, and not to mention SO last year!
This #RTBOX contained:
- Eleven Little Roosters VR Cardboard Headset.
- Rooster Teeth Reverse Logo shirt.
- Achievement Hunter Cocktail Shaker.
- RWBY Reporters Notebook.
- Roostersnaps Pen.
- RWBY Grimm Eclipse JNPR DLC Code
- Note from Josh
I liked this one much more than the November one, mainly for the shirt. As the self-proclaimed selfie queen (please look at my Twitter page to confirm this) I was tickled pink to have a selfie-themed shirt! I've always been a huge fan of the classic logo on black as it is such a versatile piece to fit in with many wardrobe options. I wanted to give this month's look an alternative edge, with plenty of attitude and eyeliner!
(^Notice the shirt's effect in selfie mode!^)
The Rooster Teeth store has loads of comfy beanies to choose from that would compliment this look, but today I went for my warm wool one, because boy it's been chilly here! (Check your clothes labels for pieces with wool/ cashmere/ merino/ angora or a blend of any of the above written on them to keep you warm and stylish in the cold. Avoid cheap acrylic!)
A dark smokey eye and red lip really give an extra punch to this red and black themed look. The darker the better! Just remember to blend that smokey eye out! Just when you think you're done blending, blend some more.
The shirt goes great and really makes a statement with the new RWBY Ruby Rose Leggings. It really creates a great, almost artistic line of the red all the way down the outfit and I'm really in love with them! Not to mention they are so comfortable and are made from a thick enough material to keep me warm when the frost bites. Pair these with a crushed velvet jacket for an extra layer, or see my wool rule above.
As for footwear, I wanted to wear some skyscraper platforms, but thinking of my own alternative style when I was growing up, nothing beat a pair of Converse. These ones were a limited edition from Carnaby Street in London, but the original black ones will look just as great. Why not swap out the laces for red ones?
I kept my accessories very simple, as I didn't want to detract from the overall look. A scarf that has a little attitude plus some slapbands and the wristband we got from a previous RTBox finished my outfit off nicely! Remember the little things: paint your nails and pair with some serious sass.
So there you have it! I hope you love this look as much as I do! As always, keep using #RTCommunityDay on Twitter or tag me RTisFashionable or @ailsarocks so I can check out your lovely pictures too!
Stay Fashionable you absolute beauts ;)

I wanna be Sociable, Sociable
And now that I've got whatever Olivia Newton John images crossed with me in your head that you came up with, let's celebrate another day in the RT community!
The irony being if I'd have only waited a day to post the last 008 update, we'd have a big ol' post for today.
As always let's try copying an image from a remotely hosted internet source...
:large" data-width="720" data-height="900">
Well, there's text this time... That's a start.
For this #rtcommunityday's actual picture of me in RT swag (usually accompanied by a joke), you can always check out my twitter or intstagram. There's also always facebook where I think its time my RT Community stuff started spreading as well, I just feel I need more RT Community people there to appreciate it.
I have other shameless plugs too. I'm a routine member of RT_Seattle and I'm sure the fine ladies in charge would love to have you at one of our events if you can make it.
Have a PS3 or PS4? I'm making the transition soonish to the current/next gen. While I revel in bigger Minecraft worlds and finally discover the next chapter of the inFAMOUS saga, I'll probably need help boosting up my Warlock in Destiny. Look out for GEEK-008 in the Tower and other games.
Lest we forget, I've always valued the on-site community too. So much so that I am trying a new way to us to know each other better in leu of my old Tuesday Question Days. Ask me a question by the 25th and see what happens (or follow the link).
And, as it's December I'll leave you all with one of my favorite RT holiday videos.
I've got a cheddar, bacon, roast beef, and chive flatbread to go devour.

Now, usually I would be styling the super hot shirt I receive from my Double Gold #RTBox, however, there's been some postal strikes in the UK so it hasn't arrived in time! Boo!
No worries! For I have quickly put together a classic Christmassy look that will guarantee to 1, Look totally adorable and 2. Be bang on trend too! I hope you love it as much as I do!
I'm one of those people who cringe when they see blue or orange on a Christmas tree. IT MUST BE STRICTLY RED AND GOLD PEOPLE. I wanted to reflect this timeless, classically Christmassy combo in my outfit, so looked out some gold tone pearls, my trusty gold choker and ruby red belt and ring. I could totally imagine a grown up Ruby Rose rocking this look can't you?
Velvet is the ultimate mega-trend for winter. This ruby silk velvet coat is a new addition to my wardrobe but my goodness has it made an impact! Black velvet would be a more subtle addition so go with what you are comfortable with. And don't stop at velvet coats, why not try burnt velvet leggings from Black Milk, or a little velvet choker for a subtle nod to the trend? Lads, look for a pair of ruby velvet brogues. I mean damn... can you imagine the level of suave?! Whatever you decide, velvet is making an appearance pretty much everywhere, so experiment and have fun with it!
I love how my RWBY bag from last month's RTBox looks so great with this look too, it is so versatile! As for my shoes, I managed to find these adorable wedged ankle boots in my shoe closet! Go dressier with a pair of mid heels, or pumps for a comfy alternative.
The main things to remember here are if you're going Rooster Teeth, think warm, luxurious ruby, velvet and golden pearl tones. If you'd prefer Achievement Hunter, try rich emerald hues instead.
Well, that's me for 2016 (unless the RT Box arrives in time!) so I will wish you a very happy RT Community Day, a very Merry Christmas and a gorgeous New Year!
Stay Fashionable, as always <3

Hello my dears! My goodness, #rtcommunityday snuck up on me this month! I feel like it was only recently I was writing the article for the last one! But here we are, mid way through November ALREADY. Time: you need to calm your shit.
As always please post your #rtcommunity pics on twitter using that hashtag so I can see! I love checking out your unique styles!
Anyway, as predicted the October RT Box was spooky themed! Here's a little inventory list of what we got this month:
- An Achievement Hunter Beanie hat.
- The Funhaus Freakshow Shirt.
- 5 piece glow in the dark RWBY button pack.
- Gus' face mask. Yup.
- Let's Play logo shot glass.
- RWBY Tote Bag.
- RT Store $5 gift code.
- Card written by Michael.
As I write this I just realised I didn't actually get the AH beanie in my box. I'll get that sorted! *EDIT: Shoutout to Sheena from RT Support you absolute babe!* I want to style the pieces I did receive. Now, with this being a Halloween themed box, you might think that you could only use these things at the spookiest time of year. Wrong! The super stylish Funhaus shirt has a great autumnal feel, with a slight alternative edginess to it.
Being a Funhaus piece, I was delighted to dust off my orange sunglasses. There is still a little sun here in Scotland! Banish Winter blues and shine brightly in bold hues of orange, red and gold! I'm still waiting for my Funhaus Logo lightweight scarf. Just sayin'!
Or, if you'd like to play on that alternative edge, get your chokers back out, rock a little black leather. All genders suit this season's hottest offering: leather panelling. My coat is wool with leather bucket pockets, leather cuffs and leather panelling along the bottom half too. It's a great way to smarten up your everyday outfit while still adding a little alt attitude!
As for footwear, I would recommend some cute creepers if the weather is still dry with you. However, mine would get utterly ruined due to Scotland's wintery weather so I've had to opt for some boots. Go for a little heel to elongate shorter legs, or go flat to stay comfortable! Why not try some military style or biker boots? These beauts are from All Saints. But style it your way!
I love that the RWBY bag has that darker feel to it too, tying into this look perfectly. Another great feature is that it's fairly waterproof, as I got to test out when I went shopping today!
Well there we are! I hope you enjoy this look as much as I loved wearing and styling it! Hmmm, I'm wondering what the theme might be for the November box... any guesses? Winter? Party? I suppose we will find out soon.
Stay Fashionable ;)

Hey there! What's up my loves? I wish you all the happiest RT Community Day today! Remember to use the hashtag #rtcommunityday so I can see all your pics on Twitter too! I know you guys always bring your A-game!
Another month has gone by and another lovely RT Box has arrived! This one was September's box with the theme: Movies.
Here's an inventory list of everything we got. Remember, these items are all RT Box exclusives! That means you need to be a Double Gold Level First Member to get them. Want to get involved? Sign up now!
- Lovely note from Jack
- Lazer Team themed popcorn
- RT Podcast Pizza Cutter
- Achievement Hunter sunglasses (with bottle opener arms)
- Game Code for Jack Box 2
- Theatre Mode tumbler
- Crunch Time coasters
- Theatre Mode Double Gold shirt.
The shirt from this RT Box has already had two outings. I reach for it because it is so easily to style with pieces I have in my wardrobe. I wanted to test drive this shirt a bit so I could come up with my top look this month. Hope you like!
I decided to take inspiration from Jack's note when styling this outfit. Picture this if you will:
You were in classes all day yesterday. You and your friends treat yourself to a few drinks afterwards. A few drinks quickly turns into an all nighter and it's time to get up for class again. You feel rough as hell, but you've got classes and then you promised your friends you would go to dinner and a movie later. What the heck do you wear?
The look has to be comfortable, effortlessly stylish and nice enough to wear out to dinner. A great staple trans-seasonal piece to have is a pair of culottes. They can be dressed casually for daywear and easily made to look more formal too with a few accessory changes.
I keep reaching for my patent brogues. These ones have a slight heel which are great for elongating the look of your legs. The shirt goes so well tucked in that I didn't want to make too much of a statement with my accessories, so I went with a few favourite jewellery pieces and a forest green bag: so on trend this autumn. Experiment with softer lines and textures with this look, really make it your own!
Got bags under your eyes for days after that wild night out? The Achievement Hunter sunglasses mask those perfectly, and a splash of coffee in the new Theatre Mode thermos will make you all better by dinner time. I slung on my Achievement Hunter Lightweight Scarf as well to add an additional pop of colour. (This was me an my way to work this morning!)
As for you gents, a really high quality denim pair of long shorts would work well with this look, or a tailored short if you want to go smarter! Brogues will look great or mix it up with a smart/casual sneaker! Express your individuality!
Well that's it for another month! I can't wait for the next box! With it being Halloween, I can't help but wonder if the next box will have a spooooooooky theme. We will see! Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful community day!
Stay Fashionable <3

Happy #rtcommunityday to all! I hope you are doing well!
Yay! My August Double Gold First Exclusive box finally arrived in the Highlands of Scotland! How exciting! The best part about this box is that I had NO idea what was going to be in it, so I couldn't plan my article in advance! Challenge accepted! ;) (Remember these items are exclusive to Double Gold Level First Members, so what are you waiting for? Sign up now!)
So let's have a look and see what we got this month! The theme was 'Back To School', one which will be useful to so many at this time of year. The August box contained lots of awesome goodies which can be adapted to non-students too! Here's an inventory of the items we got this month:
- Gorgeously detailed RT Box, complete with quotes aplenty
- A note from our 'mom' @Barbara, detailing all the useful ways you can use your items if you're not a student... and dick pics of course
- A RWBY sticker set featuring the four main gals
- A Game Code for Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (and it's Soundtrack), and Disorder.
- Screw Attack Logo Compact mirror
- Red/black marbled Rooster Teeth wristband
- Let's Play pencil case, complete with pencils for every member of the Let's Play family (Six total)
- Rooster Teeth insulated lunchbox/beer cooler.
- I ** Rooster Teeth Double Gold key-ring
- Rooster Teeth University Shirt
I love that Rooster Teeth chose the 'Back To School' Theme. Even when you're not a student, you always get that feeling when Summer is starting to wind down that there is potential for new beginnings, changes or even just a period of remembering summer's good times. The weather is getting ever so slightly colder but you still want to look good. It's a time for trying out a new look you can rock all through the season!
Now for the Rooster Teeth University shirt. First off I love that this, along with all the other pieces in the box are Double Gold Sponsor level exclusives. The fact that this shirt was only available in this box adds to it's desirability. I would have been pretty sad if I had missed out on this one!
My initial thoughts when I saw this shirt was that I wanted to style it the way I would wear it if I was starting a term at university. It must be styled smartly, classic and a little preppy. It must be effortlessly cool, and wearable for a spectrum of tastes. So here's what I've come up with!
I could have gone two ways with this, the shirt could be easily styled with a varsity style baseball jacket, jeans and sneakers and would have been awesome! If you have these pieces in your wardrobe they get my thumbs up of approval with this shirt! Why not tag me in a pic? I'd love to see!
However, I want to out "smart" the teachers, out "cool" the cool kids but with simple pieces that'll do you through the colder weather. A good longline blazer or trench is an autumnal staple. I got this one at the boutique I work in but you'll see styles like these popping up in stores everywhere
pretty soon. All genders are going to look great in this too so don't think you're excluded!
Extra points for cool autumn prints like herringbone, hounds-tooth, or tweed. Top tip, if you're taller you can get away with a coat below the knee. Shorter folks try a coat above the knee if you feel drowned by a longer style. I also like to turn up the sleeves for a preppy touch. Trousers are tailored in style and simple in colour. I didn't want them to be the star of the show so I kept them classic. If your trench was a block colour you could try some patterned trousers in the autumnal colour palette.
Lastly, shoes must be high quality, classic but durable. Brogues are my go-to shoe for the autumn and they go with pretty much everything! These are a real investment so buy the best you can afford. I went for a patent black pointy pair today.
I've added a few other pieces from the RT Box to really complete the look. The wristband is so easy to style with this look and I liked to use the Rooster Teeth lunchbag as a mini handbag by tying my Rooster Teeth lightweight scarf to it!
Why not add some of your other Rooster Teeth merchandise? I loved adding my Lootcrate Anime RWBY notebook and Rooster Teeth wristbands.
So there you have it! Did you get the August Double Gold Box? What was your favourite item? How are you styling the exclusive pieces? Remember to tag me @ailsarocks or the RTisFashionable Twitter in your #rtcommunityday pictures!

Hello my loves! Happy RT Community Day!! With so many other communities merging into our own, let's be extra welcoming and loving to our beloved community and all it's members! Remember I'll be looking out for your pictures on Twitter! Use hashtag #rtcommunityday
Yay! My next article is up! Did you see it? Click here if you'd like to take a quick look!
So after doing the 90's shoot, I was thinking a lot about the idea of the unisex shirt.
Most might see unisex as a negative thing, especially some of the ladies, who crave ladies cut shirts (myself included). I know that we will not always get the option for a ladies cut, and more importantly, what if you don't identify as strictly 'male' or 'female'? What if you feel a little bit more masculine one day, and feminine the next? I believe that, particularly when it comes to style, gender is very fluid.
So naturally I wanted to experiment with the androgynous style. It's one that I really enjoy wearing myself so it was easy to quickly throw outfits together with things I already had in my wardrobe (and hopefully things you have in yours!). That's something I really love about The Funhaus Collection, if you want to be girly in a ladies cut, there's something there for you, if you want to try the looks I've created here for the shoot, there's something there for you. If you want to dress masculine, there's something there for you. It caters for the whole spectrum of 'gender' and I'm very proud to be able to highlight that.
Once again I have to thank my brother Lewis for being so incredibly patient with me. I kinda just threw some of my tightest coated denim jeans at him and he probably suited them better than me. He was also very open to me doing a few makeup looks on him. I really enjoyed the androgynous idea of unisex. In this styling it's very much a positive thing that both promotes individuality in gender yet unites them all at the same time. <3
Fun fact. If you look really closely at the pictures of me in these shoots, my glasses are completely steamed up. This was the last shoot of the day and being under the studio light for hours was roasting! Throw in several outfit changes and I was pretty warm by the end of the day!
Once again, I have to say thanks to everyone who has supported me, these articles and each other! Your messages and comments are truly uplifting and it's really heart-warming to see that the community is enjoying the series. This was the last shoot I did exclusively Funhaus, so keep an eye out for the next article very soon!
Stay Fashionable ;)

What's up my loves? I wish you the happiest RT Community Day, I hope you are rocking your favourite RT/AH/FH/SA/LT shirt as we speak! My picture will be up on Twitter soon and I'll of course be retweeting any pictures I'm tagged in or that use the hashtag #RTCommunityDay.
Three years ago I wanted to contribute something to the Community. Something I was really passionate about. I started up the Rooster Teeth is Fashionable group because I wanted people to be proud to wear their merch their way, something I still believe strongly today.
I loved to write, I loved to help people if they wanted it. I wrote articles about the staff, I wrote articles about amazing community members, I reviewed products, and I guest wrote to help other groups like SideQuest, and I poured my passions into every single one. I tried my hand at designing, making things, and customising too. I made videos and did mass giveaways so everyone could have their own piece of Rooster Teeth merch to wear.
I'd like to think that the group has become part of the fabric of the site (excuse the pun). But it wasn't always like that. Many were quick to say that a fashion group had no place here, and I know that folks will always have that opinion and that's ok. :) I am just delighted to receive so much love and support from the amazing people who welcome my contributions. The community is all about celebrating our diverse talents, I will never stop thanking you because it means the world to me.
In my quest to assist in any way I can, I have been given the most amazing opportunity. Being able to write articles for Rooster Teeth is a real life goal. I thought I was passionate before! I have been practically giddy with excitement getting the submissions ready for you to read. It really is what I feel like I was meant to do. I know that not everyone will agree with me, and I know I am a few sizes too curvy to be a proper model, but that's just it. I love that I've been accepted for me, who I am now. I want to help the community and embrace the diversity of all our tastes and wonderful shapes and sizes. We all look great in RT merch and I can prove it! <3
If you have a spare minute or two, I would really appreciate it if you could have a little read of my articles as they pop up on the site's front page. There's one there now so please take a look! And let me know your thoughts, put in your suggestions, or what you'd do with the pieces I'm looking at. And of course, if you have any fashion related questions, I'm always here to help! We have the question function thing now so take advantage of that! Let's start the conversation and get excited about representing our favourite company!
Once again, I want to thank everyone who is reading this for your support. Whether that's actively supporting me or just a cheeky wee thumbs up here and there. It all adds up and I'll never stop appreciating it!
Ok, I'm done gushing now. I love you all. I'm done. Honest.

Happy Community Day everyone! In keeping with 2015 New Year's resolution, I've sought out opportunities to volunteer and give back to my local community on every RT community day (whilst sporting some RT merch). Here are the past community day projects:
December: The best toy drive ever
January: Helping coworkers with our benefits package and biometric screenings
February: Walking and raising money for heart disease and stroke
March: Donating blood
Since today is tax day, I thought for the month of April should be something that helps the community and helping you with the tax-man; a real win-win.
This month, I made a fairly large donation of stuff to my local Goodwill (a chain thrift-store that accepts donations of items from locals). I went through my house and completely cleared out my dresser and closet of all clothes I don't wear anymore. As I was going through my clothes, I realized how many clothes I was holding simply for sentimental value even though I haven't worn them in years. At first, it was hard parting with them, but I realized I have memories and photos and those are much better than a t-shirt can ever impart (even if it's a Rush shirt from their recent concert tour). On top of clothes, I donated old plates, bowls, glasses, and cups I had replaced with newer ones (it turns out Goodwill will take just about anything). The amount of stuff boggled the Goodwill worker's mind; he had to get a large cart just for my stuff. He was equally perplexed by my shirt, "Who the hell is that supposed to be?' Well, the mad king decided to giveth today ;)
"But James!' cried the internet, "It sounds like this month you just did stuff for yourself. You cleared out stuff you don't use and you got a tax credit for the donation!' Well internet, that part is correct, but it's not the whole story. I like donating to places like Goodwill, not only for the tax credit, but its regional economic impact. First off, Goodwill provides countless job opportunities for people who normally can't get work. Not only do these people get paid for their work, they gain precious working experience that they can leverage when seeking more work. As anyone knows when they first started applying for their first job knows how important experience is to separate yourself from other applicants. Second, since a lot of Goodwill's store items come from donations, they can charge a very low price for these items, allowing low income people to afford necessities while still leaving money left over as discretionary income . Last, when more people have a larger amount of discretionary income, they have more money to spend. Having more money to spend actually creates more money in the economy through the magic of macro-economic theory (actually called the velocity of money). To review: a thrift store like Goodwill create jobs, give a larger share of discretionary income to people, stimulates the economy, AND gives donors a tax credit. Sounds like a win-win to me!
On a concluding note, to some, it may seem disingenuous to donate or volunteer if you get some benefit back from it (aside from the warm bubbly feeling of helping others). I can completely understand that. That being said, I'm all for creating incentives for people to volunteer and donate to help their community, if they normally wouldn't have without the incentive. The net effect of the incentives far more benefit the community than any individual.
I'm always on the lookout for volunteer opportunities. Leave suggestions in the comments below, PM me, send smoke signals; whatever you're comfortable with.
Thank you all and happy community day!
