The Shoe-Room

This is where we make our shoes. Plus: Some shoes made by the other, and far more skilled students. Some are made with condoms because last years project had something to do with condoms I think. I'm not sure though. I wasn't there last year and this was made by the students of the school not University. But now you can probably imagine that it's a really good school/University.

Fancy Footwork pt. II

Shoes by Ghost of Fashion

I'm finally done with my first pair of Shoes. Yeah, you read right, SHOES! There's so much love in this pair of beautiful red leather shoes. It was really hard to make them and I'm really sorry, but I don't have any pictures of the beginning of the process. (Actally there is one but I my friend who took it didn't send it to me yet, shame on her). I'm going to put up a general post about the studio soon, so you know what it looks like and all the stuff that's lying around, plus some shoes done by the students (with condoms, to get your curiosity). I hope you like my very simple and very red Oxford shoes. This is my first pair, but I'm definitly going to continue Shoemaking next semester, so be aware for more shoes to come in 2011!

Someday I'll be a Samurai!

My mum gifted me this lgen - wait for it - DARY Kimono. I guess she bought it a million years ago hen Vintage clothes still were cheap.
It's made from the softest silk, beautifully tailored and the painting on the inside is just marvellous! My mum told me that the really important Samurai families had paintings inside their Kimonos and that the signs on the arms and onthe back are the family's sign. Of course this is a mans Kimono, that's why I'm so suprised it fis me. And it fits me perfectly! This is the finest piece of clothing I own.

Yesterday was a bit of a crazy night. I only took my camera with me because I needed a new picture of me for my new job. We ended up doing a lot of pictures of me doing weird stuff. These are the best ones. My friedn said I was even dressed crazy for my means, but that's not for me to decide. I wear wahtever I want to no matter how many people tell me to stop or tell me I'm ugly or tell me I'm a fail. I'm not and as long as I know that and my friedns are behind me I will do whatever the fuck I want to. Deal with it, Vienna!

I'm really trying

I've been trying to put up a post about that hat I made, but blogger won't et me upload my pictures because it's a bitch or I don't know why!
I'm really sorry about my lack of posting, but I can't really do much about it. I guess I'll be trying and trying again untill it finally works again.

EDIT: I did it! YAY! Who's your daddy now?

The Crown Hat

This is the first thing I did. It's plain wire wrapped and knotted around a hat mould, unfortunately it lost a little bit of it's original form due to transportation.

I took the same hat mould to try and get some wire netting into hatform aswell. This was just a piece of net that was lying around. It didn't even have the right colour and it was too broken anyways.
So I went to the shop and bought new wire netting. This has exactly the same colour as the wire butit was a bit harder than the tryout net and my fingers soon began to hurt, although I was using pliers. Didn't help it much, but I really like the outcome. I still have to solder/braze the ends of the net to the very thin wire I wrapped around the end of the brim to secure it.

Then I simply pulled the first hat/helmet on the net-hat and voila! I got a very pretty wire hat.

Just another picture to show the original colour. You can also see that little project I'm working on for university. It's just silouettes with other silouettes I created on them. It's my semester project, I'm probably going to post about that sometime too, but I'm at the very beginning and I don't even know what I'm going to design clothes or interiors anyways or maybe both. There are juts so many possibilities.

PS.: I'm working on a pair of shoes right now, but I won't have any pictures untill next monday. Check in for updates on that sometime next week!

The Karaokes and a lot of Blood

The Karaokes had another show! It happened last saturday and it was a special Halloween show even though Halloween was last Sunday.
Anyways, it was an awsome show, with lots of blood, pop songs, and candy. (Not) Surprisingly we got booked for New Year's Eve again at Pratersauna. These are just a few Pictures of the show, find more here.

PS.: I was wearing a wig in the third picture, that's actually me!

Lanvin for H&M
