Where has Rococopunk been all my life? This obstinately silly new trend imagines a world where "the Rococo period never ended, and it had a lovechild with Sid Vicious," according to WonderHowTo's Austin Sirkin. The face makeup looks like something out of Liquid Sky and the costumes have a wonderfully decadant pallette. Nobody is ever going to say that Rococopunk has anything to do with goths discovering the color brown.
My favorite: The guy who has "Opulence" tattooed (Sharpied?) on his knuckles.
The earliest reference to Rococopunk I can find is a painting from 2010. But the people in these photos appear to have been at Dragon*Con 2012, and you can watch Nerd Caliber's interview with them here.
