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~

A Girl and Her Door

I’ve been wanting to do outfit posts with my Canon T5 Rebel for a while!

In this set, I wore a top I made for my first fashion show ever! I haven’t made another one since due to time, money, interest, material, etc., but if I get enough interest in this, I may start making them for the shop!  The skirt, however, is something I’ve owned for about four years now that I got at some Forever-21-esque shop.  I understand the construction of the skirt now, and plan to make a new one for myself and donate this one.  I’m trying to cut down on my shopping and cull out the excess of my life– I’m staring with my clothes, makeup and other fashion-related items.  I’m also hoping that the empty spaces in the closet will encourage me to sew more, decrease the sizes of the fabric mountains in my room, and to add more of my own creations to my wardrobe!
