Saturday's Halloween Carousel Class went hauntingly well! Six wonderful women joined me at the CASTLE for a day of Halloween fun. I don't often teach classes where everyone starts with the same materials, so it always amazes me that despite this, everyone ends up with something different. If you look closely at these, you'll see many little differences in each carousel (including a couple of clowning skellies) that makes them unique and special! BRAVO GIRLS!!!
Once a year in the spring, San Francisco plays host to The Emerging Illusions Alternative Fashion show. Designed to showcase up and coming fashion and costume designers from the Punk, Goth and Industrial scenes, its a tour de force of creative inspiration! I love the grab-bag feel of these outfits. Bits and pieces of fabrics, zippers, lace, and trims, deconstructed and then reconstructed into costumes any fashion Magpie would adore!!! Link
This Saturday the 25th, I'll be teaching a Halloween Carousel at the CASTLE! I think there is still a spot or two left, so call 510-204-9801 if you are interested!!! For this carousel I decided to use 'iconic' halloween images and cut them out as silhouettes. I used parchment paper and added rubber stamps for details. They have the appearance of flying in a haunted forest... The roof features a witches hat top and fun crepe paper finial! I love how the whole piece turned out, let me know what you think!!!
