whats been happening this week.....

I've been making my Halloween costume..... Yes i know, a month early, but whats the point in rushing around last minute. I won't know what my shift patterns will be for my new job for another couple of days.  that and I've been planning the costume for over a year...  I'm not kidding... its the best festival of the year in a personal opinion closely followed by Christmas.

(yes the model is me.."tah dah!!!".. And J took the photographs)

I was thinking of a clockwork doll and so in the middle of making the key for my back.

the inspiration came from a song..... (not for small ears) but the costume is More inspired by the Victorian fashion and Burlesque clothing.

so  yes  we have a corset (a little loose due to me being a skinny creature)
underneath is a dress fashioned into a skirt with over lip so it covers my tummy (so the corset doesn't rub),
Stockings  fantastically cool black and purple spiral affect. A beautiful headpiece i found in Claire's
 handy Charity shops old men's shirts and a net veil that was found to fashion a bustle..
unfortunate that the bustle had been sat on but it will, I'm sure will be fit and "poofy" enough for the HALLOWEEN WEEKEND!!!!!  I

I hope i will have full Photographs of the final piece, including the KEY and a makeup idea to keep a little ex performer happy.

My welcomes

 I studied Five long years upto Half a degree in Fine Art at College but unfortunatly faild my last year due to trouble with essays, I then straid away from my own art work and style when i became a full time Assistant manager of a pub.
  Recently I have become creativly active again, painting and doodling on free afternoons and settled into my new home with just enough room for me to spread out my mess bord (an old piece of MDF i use as a desk) and medias.
 It has to be said, my insperation to get back into my work is My new boyfriend "J" trying to get me to relax alittle on splitshifts instead of feeling like somthing is going to go wrong every five minutes.
