so.... this is an incredibly old project of mine (think early 2007) that I JUST photographed. So here it is. The assignment was to create a "Survival Kit" for an environment of your choosing.
I decided to make a survival kit for being the "ideal" 1950's housewife. The apron unzips to reveal hidden pockets full of everything a housewife could need, including cooking utensils, instant cake mix, and frozen dinners. In the left pocket are beauty supplies, makeup, pearls, etc. for looking the part. In the right pocket are more devious things like cigarettes, fake nails, yellow rubber gloves, panty hose, and pill bottles.
Inspiration was taken from the Rolling Stone's song "Mother's Little Helper."







Mother's Little Helper lyrics:

What a drag it is getting old.
"Kids are different today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she's not really ill
There's a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day.

"Things are different today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband's just a drag
So she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak
And goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And two help her on her way, get her through her busy day.

Doctor, please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more
What a drag it is getting old.

"Men just aren't the same today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
They just don't appreciate that you get tired
They're so hard to satisfy. You can tranquilize your mind
So go running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And four help you through the night, help to minimise your plight.

Doctor, please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more
What a drag it is getting old.

"Life's just much too hard today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
No more running to the shelter of a mother's little helper
They just helped you on your way through your busy dying day
