quick note

I tend to get pissy if something that is actually cool gets picked up and designed to death by the high-end before the street has a chance to really play with it.

Today I'm talking about spats/gaiters.

and I'm talking about a time line of about 7 years. if you feel like doing research you should look up Swears (they had two lines, this is their nice one not the rave one) from 2002 ish.

ideas, and stuff

OK so I got the coolest thing ever in New York. from Evolution. It's a natural history store in Soho that sells taxidermy, bones, and anatomical models. They had a txidermied pigeon. I asked if they had other stuff and produced a skull from behind the counter.

So I have all these ideas now. And one of them is based on

this image of the sacred heart.

and anyway cause I usually end up half naked in my self portraits this is where I'm at so far in this idea.

it's a work in progress, but it's far enough along so that you can see where I'm going with it...

anyway. that's it for now.

I've also added some more links.

It seems like some people actually do read this thing, don't be shy. comment.

I've been away

Which is no excuse. I'm trying to find time to be creative and productive. It's not working out as well as it could.

So here are some pigeons.

No idea of the source of this image, a friend sent it to me.

This one is an early attempt at stop motion photography. I've used it for school projects.

alright off to be productive.

The fringe festival has started

And day one's outfit was close to this, but the dress was a kenzie, and the bag was a big cloth Yak Pack, and my glasses are not miu mius. But whatever, the styling is right.

Also this whole maxi dress trend swept in waaaaaay under my radar. Why did this happen? what did I miss? Also very happy it did happen.

oh yes

I know some people look at this to see what I'm doing/making. I'm hoping to have something to show you this week. But right now I am hot. I smell like wet cat. And I just want it to get a bit cooler before I do anything. I haven't gotten used to the heat yet, and it's not pleasant.

but ideas are on the move, and those ideas appear to have an audience (if small), so they'll be made public, as soon as I can stop sweating to death and having heat induced, cat related mania (yo bruce I think you'd be happier with a shower... MROWR, ouch).
omg so many commas.

it's summer bitches, bring on the sundresses.

I wish I was wearing this today

instead I've had my wallet stolen and the camera buying/clothes shopping has been postponed. I also haven't had a chance to do laundry, so todays outfit isn't nearly as glam.

Also I have way too much fun with a website that was designed for teenage girls to pretend to play dressup.

and a bit disturbing. Rosanna Arquette in Cronenberg's Crash.

In life news, I may sacrifice food and buy a fancy camera today. And with said fancy camera I might take legbrace pinup photos (please note, that the braces I plan on using are not medical, and look more like those exoskeleton lifting suits). That is if I can convince the model that it's not creepy.

Off to work

I'm just going to leave you with one of my favourite images ever. And something that has been a constant style inspiration for a couple of years now, even if it isn't obvious most days.

more tattoo ideas

I'm thinking about a back piece, and I keep getting inspired by the idea of the japanese body suit.

it's a little late in the game for that, but it's the top of my back I'm working on now.
