Samba

What a rockin' good time it was last night. Trinity Samba & Sound of Brazil and Cantico played an amazing night of music.
I had the great pleasure of being one of the volunteer bar tenders(in 4 inch platform shoes, covered from head to toe with glitter) for the evening with Richelle, Eric and Jerry. Here are some pics of the Seaweed Nymph of the Kelp Forest costume I made for Ruth and the MerGirl costume I made myself for the festivities.
The theme of the Samba Rio - Under the Sea



.....tendrils of green and brown seaweed






...oh, and the MerGirl headpiece.






...cascades of falling water.


Love how this fabric looked like it had tiny little blue lights all over it.


Secretly, I wish I could dress this way every day.

Bye Bye ... I'll Miss What You Would Have Done Next Alexander McQueen


It is a very sad day for fashion. I turned on my computer today to discover Lee McQueen had committed suicide. I am speechless, for me he represented a part of the fashion industry that is all but forgotten. He was truly creative and innovative and had the unique opportunity to create fashion for fashion's sake. In this generation of branded fashion that is hard to come by because it doesn't always fit into a pretty little boxed package. He was part a a rare few still able to achieve this. Lee you will be so missed.

Random thought of the day ...

.... life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop to look once in awhile, you could miss it.
