These past months have been mad crazy trying to complete all of the costumes, hold workshops and classes, pay rent and bills… Fortunately I’ve had supplies like glass, beads, leather, fabric, and yarn kicking around the studio for YEaRS! Honestly though, to whomever is out there actually reading this, the primary concern now is:… Continue reading Motherload
That’s what Gold Ruby is. Lush. I’m working on Costume #3 for Maison de Verre, as I wait for supplies to arrive in order to finish up Diorama #1 & 2. Costume 3 is, hopefully 😉 going to turn out an amalgamation of Jean-Paul Gaultier met Botticelli met Bosch. Lots of Gold Ruby, Rhubarb, Semillon… Continue reading Lush
