Attn: BrennaI love you so hard.
I have decided that when I grow up I'm going to be a nail technician.
Aw man. Those teeny weeny bat signals are 100% awesome. The follow-along with Project Runway sounds like a lot of fun. If I didn't suddenly have no time (as opposed to the last few MONTHS when I had nothing BUT time) I would join you!(Wait, when does it actually start?)
In 29 days, but they announced the contestants today, and I am, dutifully following their schedule. I'll do little filler crap, like "hey, I have a $99 sewing machine and collect fabric" until then.Man, yeah, you are deluged with Stuff right now. I had originally been thinking of trying to rope others in and do it iron-man style—but I was, in the end, too lazy.
29 days? PSH. The show'll be over by then. (Though I haven't a clue if I'll have another soon or not. Eh. The hope is yes and one that pays enough that I don't have to temp....) I think you may have roped me just by talking about it. I'll get back to you after Christmas. :3
I love your batman nails, and could you be any cuter in that last picture? Because damn. :DAlso! A lyric from a Joan Baez song has been floating through my head and I wanted to make an icon using it, and I wound up using one of your showing off your nails. It's over on my LJ right now. I needed hands for it, couldn't find any I liked, then remembered your hand-centric nail art photos. TA-DA.
Ha rad!It says something about my current abilities to observe that I saw that post and did not recognise myself.
Nifty! Both the nails and PR playalong. (Did you get the links I sent you? Were they interesting? I know they're a little outside of the look you favor but it was neat to see someone else's take on Mad Max post-apocalyptia.)
Shit yes I did! Then the super-rush started at work and I started being absent from home 13 hours a day. I really dug her whole thing going on. I've got 'em marked to look at when my brain isn't pudding.
She blogs rapidly on her fashion blog. I was astonished at how many posts went by since I checked on it last. (She tipped me off to the upcoming Rodarte for Target line, which is ridiculous and wonderful and full of tulle.)Also I saw this trick and thought of you.
I am a bad friend for not telling you about Rodatre for Target! I think I assumed you already knew. I have my heart set on the layered skirt and the lacy cardigan. Why do I fall in love with girly things that don't match what I own?!That is a wicked cool trick. I can see terrible and awesome coming from it.
Our local Target? Is built on top of a hill that bulldozed a Native American burial site. Every time I'm near the place I have the constant feeling that the sky is about to part and the dimensions rip open and suddenly Zuul will bring forth Gozer the Gozerian and some serious shit will go down. Possibly with marshmallows. It causes a constant low-level panicky mania in the patrons.Which is why I sort of delete the existence of Target from my life. I am not above ordering online though. Girly things: I own them!I have some awesome rayon-jersey shirts that have started to shred, and was thinking of burning little patterns around the rips to make it all look intentional.
Oh my GAWD. What the hell now.Chase has promised to earn some sort of good person points and drive me to the big Target two towns over, that actually gets the stuff in store. I will poke at it for you and let you know if it's worth it. I love my Jovovich-Hawk top, but about 50% of the designer stuff is crappily made, from reviews I've seen over the past year or so.I so love your idea for making the rips look purposeful. You have a good brain there.
Oh, much obliged! I've been dubious about their production quality, and that's what's really kept me from braving the manic crowds.
We'll be going tomorrow, if the car is behaving. Most of it is already sold out online, holy shit.Gaultier is supposed to be doing a capsule with Target in the spring, I am so stupid excited about it.
Somehow I was reminded of Bob Dylan when I saw that photo. Not sure why.And awesome nails - did you have any kind of stencil or tool for that, or was that actually done freehand?
Freehand! Though I did use a little painter's masking tape to make sure my searchlight sides stayed even, since I was using a regular polish brush.I think my entire life has been to shape a future as a nail technician.It could be the hair that reminds you of Dylan. Or the gangly.
It might be both the hair and the gangly. But I think somehow it's a tiny bit the clothes. Somehow.Freehand.... nail technician indeed. I can't even fathom doing something that small freehand. Then again, it seems to be one of your things. (I still show people the Steampunk Saints, and my Zombie Chicken and Octoship are sitting on top of picture frames in my house.)
The vest?Aww, yay, though! I'm glad that the detritus I cast onto others stays fun.
