a few months ago, my best friend and i decided to join the competition in our area known as Kinetic Koture. its a trash fashion show put on by Kinetic Universe, Inc as a fundraiser for the great Kinetic Grand Championship. i won last year, which earned me the title of Trashonista Gloriosa the First (it was the first year we held the event, haha)
however, i wanted to show off what we did this year. the super-awesome pics are from a photoshoot by my friend Charles McNally (http://www.flickr.com/photos/fervus
), the rest are from us throughout the process.
this is us, christa in her Target Bag Dress (ironed/fused plastic) and i am in my Organic Quinoa Jumper (Quinoa bags, spray paint and duct tape)
im starting the detail at the bottom of the dress
after the blue layer
doing the copper highlights
this is my first outfit, backstage at the Koture. pineapple sunglasses, jumper, wax cardboard roman-style sandal boots, and recycled crocheted purse (purse NOT made by me)
this is a shot of our other outfits for koture (yes, we had 2 totally different looks), photo by fervus. i love christa's creepy outfit, this is more of the ironed (fused) plastic, with window screen.
and this is my DANGER dress. i used danger tape from all of the condemned/unsafe buildings in our Humboldt County earthquake in January. stitching it all together was kinda a pain, but well worth it! i used a zig-zag stitch, and just made sure to line up the red bias stripe, and im glad i did! it looks AWESOME
here's the DANGER dress in action, Kinetic Grand Championship 2010, as Race Director Royal Blue Laroo (*this* photo, courtesy of C Hoff Designs)
