Not Really A Seamstress

As most of you know, I've been making my little hats for awhile now.  I get plenty of compliments on them when I'm doing shows and when people see photos of them.

One of the recurring comments that I hear though, "Those are really cute but what would I wear it with?"

I've made costumes for myself to wear for many years.  Gotten lots of compliments on them as well.

 I've even had plenty of people say I should make costumes for others but I've never really felt that my "cobbled together" style would truly be appreciated.

Well, after the continued comments of "what do I wear it with" at the shows and the encouragement of making costumes for others, I've decided that I will make a costume or outfit for each hat so that people can have an idea of what to wear the hat with.  And, being the overachiever that I am, there will most likely be jewellry to compliment the costumes and hats as well.

So, I present to you, my first cobbled together costume ~ The Beekeeper's Wife ~ 

Yes, there's jewellry too ~ 

In case some of you don't understand what I mean when I say I "cobble things together" here's what the components of this costume looked like right from the thrift store before I did anything to them ~ 

So you can see that with just a little ingenuity and creativity I took some clothing cast-offs and transformed them into an interesting Neo-Victorian/Steampunk inspired outfit.

Working on the next costume as we speak!  Photos, of course, to follow.

Hope you enjoyed my little rambling costume story.

Peace, love & light.

Barkin' heARTs ROCKED!!!

This was by far the most fun, fabulous, fantastic show I've ever done!!  I had the opportunity to meet some wonderful artists and entertainers and I sincerely hope that our paths will cross again in the future.

I was told that my tent resembled an opium den 

which I found highly complimentary!  

The fashion show, which happened toward the end of the evening, was great.  

Of course most of the models were sporting Calliope McQuinn top hats so that made it even better!

Even the hula hoop dancer had one of my feather fascinators pinned to her hair ~ 

All in all it was a night to remember.  It's just too bad this is the only photo that I have of myself.  

Oh well, it just deepens the curiosity!

For more fun, photographic evidence, pop on over to my Facebook fan page Troll Bridge Studio and have a look at the entire album.

Johnna Guzman,  >Barkin' heARTs totally ROCKED and I can't wait to work with you again!!

Peace, love, light and a little bit of opium!
