So I went with my friends to a fabulous party recently. I had a fun time, there was great entertainment and some creative girls with a typewriter and a sewing machine who would write you a story if asked, and then sew fabric trimmings around it to dress it up, how creative is that? I wore a couple of new pieces I had just made. First I made this little cybergoddess. Sometimes I just wake up wanting to do a particular thing, perhaps inspired by something else I have seen. Mostly she is made of vintage computer, doll and clock parts and an upcycled chain. I wanted her to be quite large so she has a 3 inch wide base of a newly poured jewelry finding from a vintage mold, and she makes me smile.
I also made a hat with vacuum tubes from radios and televisions that I lit up with some LED lights , everyone tried it on as you will see. The first shot is in the dark so you can see how it looked without the flash. I used a little hat base and then attached it to a headband (thanks for that idea Janet, it was great). The batteries and LED lights are inside the hat in a little styrofoam to create some stability.
The top is a Jones of New York Size 3X that I bought at Macys, and I am not wowed by how it looks or fits, but I love how small the sequins are and that they do not scratch my skin. The skirt is a older Torrid 5X. I had a great time with my friends and I am having fun creating little unusual items.
I thought you might also like to see the venue since it was someone’s home/workspace.
Wow, I love that hat. So cool! And the work space is to-die-for.
Thanks, as you can tell I am having a lot of fun!
Enjoy the necklace a lot. And of course the hat.
Pretty funny hat. Where do I get my ideas?
Mary: My friend Jennifer tells me she got her fabulous necklace at Zara! The Spanish ‘fast fashion’ store on Post Street, an international chain. They also have a website.
Thanks for commenting. Good luck.
Rad hat. Amazing space!
It was intended to be at Peralta Junction as the closing fundraising party, but then it rained. a delightful alternative.
Thanks, broke the hat the next evening. More learning to do!
