|white swan clutch gone BAD|
my face is still swollen and i don't feel like posing in front of the camera but i do have some pics to share with you (of some pre-oral surgery projects).
i would like to say this post was inspired by the movie Black Swan, but it would be a lie. i am not sure if it was the movie or the dinner i ate before... but about 20 min into it i started getting really queasy and we had to leave.
maybe the inspiration came from a book i read my kids called Rainbow Rob? Rainbow Rob is a penguin who dreams to be colorful. But after trials and tribulations Rob comes to realization that black and white is alright and that "being yourself is the way to be".
so i had this "white swan" clutch from Goodwill for $1 (don't you just love their 50% off days?). it definitely was lacking a character. i studded the flap part of the clutch with 1/2" cone studs from studsandspikes.com.
since the area i wanted to stud was too thick i kind of had to butcher up the clutch and gut it out. black leather tassel was just something i saved and can't even remember where it came from.
white swan studded clutch and black and white gloves cut into glovettes
finger puppets made out of old gloves (from above), felt, scrap fabric & yarn; these go with the Rainbow Rob book
black and white headband made out of old tees (worn here)
zebra shirt and bows i made for Nina available on my Etsy. her bear purse is also Goodwill
white genuine leather perforated jacket $10 from Goodwill and faux snake clutch or pencil case???
and here is how black swan/ white swan should be done (by Nina Ananiashvili - the Georgian Goddess of dance):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFJGhQYex-E
i have just discovered my studded clutch's alter-ego... Rebecca Minkoff's Studded Fatale for $350.00!
