CRAP

10 May

This has to be of the most ridiculously stupid things I have done for ages…

Spent tonight making a dress to wear for a shoot tomorrow, a photograph from which needs to go on the Marmite factory wall (yes I know!!! – more of that next week). Anyhow having worked my arse off to get it finished tonight who can spot the reason why this dress simply will not (or be allowed to) cut the Marmite… Fuck me I am dense at times!!!

Slutty toilet roll dolly

12 Mar

I had you at slutty toilet roll right?..

Anyway I LOVE my new dress but apparently it makes me look like, and I quote, “a toilet dolly on crack, hey or a slutty toilet dolly on crack” (how do you even dream that insult up)?  There was worse; “or one of those brides on the gypsy wedding show”! I am massively at give a shit dot com with this and am most certainly going to wear it out tonight, and hey maybe even for the Sainsbury’s shop tomorrow too.

Here are some random variations on toilet dolly’s – and my fat bum in ‘that’ dress. For my sanity please can someone confirm if the insults were accurate!!! I must admit that I feel like a teenager taking pictures in front of the mirror – but in a bad way!

To be honest I was thinking at worst kooky fairy with a burlesque vibe :-( But am now genuinely concerned I may be trying to rock a look that no one over the age of ten should ever attempt. Sod it I might as well embrace the look and go out wearing Dolly Beads too. Bring it on!!!

Alice inspired top hats

11 Mar

So worth a repost – imagine how much I am trotting out this amazing top hat at the moment. That said with all the Alice curiouser and curiouser activity it feels like lots of uninvited guests have joined the party at the moment.

Went into Prangsta today and had to share these pictures of the AMAZING rabbit top hat which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

I am also lusting after this Ostrich feather adorned clown hat, and naturally have already eyed up this Medusa wig for Halloween…

Much thanks to Going Like Sixty for sending me this corker across – I love the way he looks after me and only sends me the strangest stuff (source).

Balloon Boy costume

I am going as a “Zombie Orville the Duck” (am still looking for my Keith if anyone is interested) to all the parties on Saturday but if I wasn’t then I heart this balloon boy costume!  The other astonishing fact I have discovered is that is possible to create an entire Orville the Duck costume from American Apparell.

There is now clowning around (sorry) but it comes to the balloon art from Jason Hackenwerth. He creates simply incredible structures that look like the love child of an alien and a sex toy. I don’t have a really dirty mind just visually that is what they look like… …erm apparently. All the rubber and risk of popping would freak me out though.

20 Sep

maxcostume1

I have already posted about the high fashion take on Where The Wild Things Are but it is these ‘home-made’ costumes which have wreaked havoc with my biological clock.

Inspired? Someone has posted details on how to make your own over at Instructables. Or less hardcore are these instructions on how to make a Max hat.

19 Sep

Where The Wild Things Are is shaping up to be AWESOME with more and more cool stuff happening around the promo of the movie. This Christian Joy activity is amongst one of the most exciting collaborations so far.

In honor of Where the Wild Things Are, Christian Joy (best known as the designer behind the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O’s crazy costumes) has created five monster suits based off of the Wild Things and Max. All costumes will be on display and for sale at Space 15 Twenty, with a percentage of the proceeds donated to 826 Valencia.

Space 2009

18 Sep

Been stuck in bed with flu so wanted to do something fairly useful – I ended up putting all my favorite Bestival 2009 costume pictures into one place. It was either that or the coven that is Loose Women.

I am pretty sure I could have done the same ‘edit’ blindfolded as it is so simple (read rubbish) so please concentrate only the costumes – I am poorly.

There is also a really cool Radio One piece here.
