I had the biggest crush on this guy (yes, it IS a guy) back in the day.  Kiss I was making this bag and my daughter said, "Hey, mama..that looks like you!" (This first pic) My husband said, "Yeah...it kinda does." (He's from Mexico..doesn't know the boy) I said "This is a DUDE...in DRAG!" He almost fainted. LOL My other daughter....the one who said "Mama, her eyebrows aren't really like that, are they?" I said "It's a him." She said "What's WRONG with it?" LOL is modeling it for me.




And no bag is complete without a matching wallet.

Love the bag!  I think you need to play a little Karma Chameleon for your family.   Cheesy

If I was any more open, I'd be inside out.

I love Culture Club. That is a great purse. What did you use to make it?

Hee-hee.  Boy George.  This made me laugh.  I was 4 or 5 when he was big, but apparently I liked him/Culture Club (even though I'm sure I had no real idea who he was or anything about the whole concept of drag and cross-dressing)--anyway, I just remember I had a little stuffed dog toy (i think it was a Pound Puppy, if I remember correctly) that I called Boy George Doggie.  Hmmm.  I wonder if I still have him.  Think I'll have to go search in my box of saved toys in the basement. . .

That's totally awesome!  Takes me back...  I'm 35 and about a year ago one of my older brothers presented me with my 45 of Karma Chameleon that he saved from the trash heap when my dad sold our house 15 years ago.  Thanks for the memory...

When I was four I told my parents I was going to marry him.

That's really cute.  Is that pink duct tape?  I'm glad the Boy is represented.  I guess lots of gals had crushes on him, I did too.  All style aside, they made some good records.

It's purple duct tape on the sides and straps.  Grin
