Working on future projects…

Sup, readers!

I have been working on a new collection, as I promised. I’m hoping to show it off in the Summer. I also recently had the chance to sort through all my fabric and am really planning on making some great stuff for the shop (it really needs to be updated).

One thing I really want to work on is organizing my fashion show kits– I need a hefty suitcase to carry things such as a steamer, my camera/recording equipment, etc. I’ve been really tempted to get a Fravel— not only is it cute, but it matches a lot of my designs! You can pre-order these cute travel suitcases here.

Pastel Wig

I wanted to shoot a headband I made and do just headshots for this post because…

a) my fashion-related talents are not just limited to sewing,

b) my wig collection is so big that it would be a shame not to showcase it, and

c) it gives me to opportunity to get back into the habit of using makeup as a form of self-empowerment.

This headband is one I made for my pair of lavender looks for Sacramento Fashion Week last year (fourth picture above).  I think making matching accessories to my garments really helps drive the overall message of a ‘look’ home.  It was one of the only headpieces I have that matches my most outrageous wig– this Rainbow Rock in Spring Bouquet by RockStar Wigs!  The wig was purchased about four years ago because I needed a wig in a raspberry pink in order to match an EGL ensemble.  I now want to use this wig in more shoots and fashion shows!

The wig is paired with Rock-a-Lash’s Lashing Out Loud (top lashes only).  My face is covered with foundation, hot pink and purple eyeshadow, purple eyeliner, black Wet-N-Wild liquid eyeliner, mascara, pinky blush, and a raspberry pink lipstick to match the pink in the wig.

I plan on making new headpieces soon for the shop– they will all probability be anywhere from $8 – $35 depending on how elaborate they are.  The whole shop is going to be revamped, so stay tuned to see what I will (literally) have in store for you all!

For those who still need their hands on some pastels or fashions with a butterfly motif, I’ve picked out a few items for you to view!  Enjoy~
