21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: FROOTY LOOPS on: April 21, 2009 12:58:11 PM
You my dear, are going to be a 'force not to be reckoned with' in life.  I personally could not pull these off, I'm a bit on the chunky side for these and I'm afraid I would look more like a burn victim with bandages around my neck...
However, they are so freakin' cool.  You have such a vibe about you, just in these little post, that I can tell you are full of life and fun and ready for whatever comes your way. 

thank you .      Smiley

Is the hood attached to the shirt, or is it an accessory?

no attachments.
it's an accessory
... you can wear it with pretty much anything,
   or nothing at all ?    Cheesy

i really dig the secure feeling
of a hood hugging my delicate neck
(independent on whether i decide to wear it up or not ...).

... and i like to wear my clothes pretty snug;
which created this lovely dilemma
of how to preserve the feeling (and look)
of the favorite part of my hoodies,
without looking like a stuffed turkey.

i was inspired.

yup .
these are constructed with recycled materials  Smiley

I'd have to say I love the black shirts the best. I'm so happy to see you posted. I think I might do some reconstruction soon as a break from crocheting .. I feel like the light shirts need a darker background or more warm colors in the gradient, I think it would compliment your skin better and bring more focus on the designs of the shirts. Is it possible that you'd do this version of reconstruction as a layer with your signature?

that would be interesting,

.. to incorporate this as a layer
over a signature design.

thank you.  Smiley

these are amazing (as always).  is the last one a suit or top only?  it looks like it extends down through the legs but i can't quite tell...

the last garment
is a mid-length jacket.

thank you for your kindness Smiley

OK I'll go first.  I'm kinda nervous because I don't want my comments to be misinterpreted and I don't know how well I will be able to convey it...

I don't know that it "conveys a message" to me exactly, but when I see it I instantly think "train car".  Like the industrial old freight trains that pass through my rural area.  It kind of looks like painted metal that's been out in the weather a while.  The graphic says "utilitarian" to me.  The signature(?) in the lower right is reminiscent of grafiti.

And I don't in any way mean to convey that all of this isn't anything but cool. 

How large is it?  I think it would have a strong impact as a large piece and maybe it would be at home hanging on a brick wall in a an urban loft.  Or in a rural converted barn with rough wood walls and beams.

And thus winds up my career as an art reviewer! Grin

thank you for taking the time
to share your thoughts with me  Smiley

yes, it is a solid size. 2 foot squared; 24 x 24.

i chose red as the main focus because
i wanted it to tie in with my work area.
( i have a red stool and mini red metal cabinet ).

...with every intention for it to be modern and minimal;
but the effect is almost its opposite.
it has an obvious vintage appearance,
"kind of looks like painted metal that's been out in the weather a while".    Smiley

being born and raised in an inner city environment
has its influence on me,
in regards to the signature.
you are right on with the graffiti.  

very interesting interpretation.
thank you again Smiley

the message:  to find beauty in things
                      not conventionally perceived as beautiful.

please recycle.
