to make this on topic: pasties=very cool. although, I assume rather uncomfortable--but this is probably not the point?

off topic--grrloutloud, I checked out your website and my goodness, you have taken some gorgeous photography! I'm referring specifically to the "darkroom" section--the composition of the shots is very interesting and the subjects are very compelling. What I like most is that there is a realness, an everyday quality to them, and yet they have an artfulness that isn't often captured in photos that genuinely feel "everyday."

very cool website with a nice touch of humor, too.

They're not really noticeable.  I think if they weren't actually glued on and were rubbing against one's skin it would be a chafing situation, but as it is there's no friction to speak of.

Also, thanks-- that website is over a year old and the work on it is older than that.  The black and white work is from my Intimate Documentation show.  It's all work that is intended to show the beuaty in every day situations. I'm glad that it read that way to you.  My latest work is color/digital and I'm so totally in love with it...I think it blows a lot of my b/w out of the water.  I can't wait until I have a large enough portfolio of it and I can start shopping around for galleries.

Here's a small shot of one of my favorites:

2  Pasties (How To) for all you aspiring burlesque queens in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by grrloutloud on: January 16, 2006 08:06:08 AM
DIY Pasties Tutorial
You will need:
1 Sheet of Felt
3 yds of sequins
hot glue gun
hot glue
a sharpie
something to trace (parmesan cheese can works nicely)
On felt, trace the traceable item twice.  With scissors, cut the circles out.
Cut a small wedge out of one circle being sure that it touches the center point of the circle.  The larger the wedge the pointier your pastie will be.
Take wedge and trace it onto the second circle (symmetry!).  Then cut the wedge out of second circle.
With hot glue gun, run a line of glue down  the edge of the cut-out-wedge.  Overlap the other side of the cut-out-wedge-space and hold until the glue sets.
Beginning at the tip of your pastie cone, glue sequins.
Continue to wrap sequins around the pastie cone in a spiral.
When all of the felt is covered, cut sequins leaving about an inch long tail.
Overturn your pastie cone and glue the tail under here.
Make 2!  Adhere with either eyelash glue or spirit gum and shake your tatas.

3  Grocery Bag Rain Coat and Umbrella in CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES by grrloutloud on: August 22, 2005 09:04:47 AM
This is my first post-- I was sent here by a friend who saw this project and thought I should enter.  I didn't even know this existed....and I'm not really sure how everything works...but here goes.

Ok.  This was made by shredding up grocery bags and knitting them.  It was originally sketched in response to G.W. suggesting that shopping would save the economy.  Shopping won't save the economy...and this project is a metaphor for that-- neither this umbrella nor this rain coat will keep you dry.

Edited to add:
Thanks for all the feed back.  In response to some requests, here are some pictures that show a little more detail.  Also, it's not me in the coat, I took the pictures.  My best friend is modelling.  It is quite a warm piece, but it's scratchy as heck.  I think that covers everything.
