Story of the Running Wolf EP release costumes

by

As soon as I got home from Burning Man this year I got to work! Story of the Running Wolf dropped their new EP, and I design and made a new set of costumes for the release party at V Lounge. These shots from the show were taken by my friend Brian Campeau.Story of the Running Wolf EP release costumes, Made by Julianne

I shared some progress shots on my Instagram. This was an incredibly labor-intensive project, done over 4 nonstop days. Basically there was a lot of tunnel quiltied lycra lamé.

As always, they looked amazing! I had a great time at the show, especially hanging out in the green room before they went on.

TRAVELING SEAMSTRESS

by

I’m spending the next couple months back in New Orleans! Although I’ve lived in Los Angeles for 6 years, this is my home, and I couldn’t be happier to be back for the winter.

My sewing machines are set up in the studio behind Adorn & Conquer. I’ll be there throughout the week working on favorite products and new designs. You can also come see me at Magazine Art Market at Dat Dog on certain Saturdays and Sundays. Currently I’m booked for markets on 8 November, and 14-15 November.

To my wonderful Los Angeles clients: Thank you for making 2015 my most productive year ever! I’ve been so busy that I haven’t shared most of my projects on my website yet (a perfect task to do while drinking beers on the porch while I’m in Dixie). I’ll be back on the west coast by the end of January, and am already taking project bookings now. Email me about your project!

CLASSIC GHOSTIE

by

I made a Halloween costume for a 5 year old who wanted to be a classic ghost. Her momma sent me this as inspiration. And here’s the client’s original sketch:

And I made this:

Similarly to the original costume, I used sunglasses to keep the costume in place.

She was just so cute (I mean scary) so here’s a ton of action shots. She told me that she died from eating too much candy.

And then my excellent husband made this!

SHING SHIRT

by

I made myself this sleeveless tee, but it didn’t fit. It so totally didn’t fit me that it fits Shing really well, and Shing is a tiny Asian woman.

Shing normally dresses in a pallette of gray and khaki, and she creates art in my spectrum of aqua, coral, and goldenrod. So fittingly, my clothing matches her imagination.

This shirt was made from all fabrics and remnants in my stash, and this lace triangle is just about my favorite:

Godspeed, pretty tank top. Enjoy your new life with someone who actually fits you.

The design has come a long way since the original convertible backpack. I got this groovy outdoor upholstery print from Joann, same with the aqua ripstop lining and blue nylon bottom. The zippers are from my stash (I love the brass teeth on colored tape!). The strap was cut from the last backpack purse, and is made from black nylon webbing sandwiched between two layers of thin cotton webbing.

I’m looking forward to many years with this purse, and it was great to sneak time away from my constant work schedule to make something for myself. It’s one of my ultimate acts of self-care.

ELECTRIC music video

by

There’s a new Story of the Running Wolf video out, and it’s pretty great.

  And I made the band’s outfits!

Theoretically there will be a photoshoot someday, and I’ll be able to share clearer shots and details from these labor-intensive costumes. I’m so, so happy with how they came out! That metallic pink striped fabric is one of my favorites, and there’s wire in the collars to help them stand up. As always, lots of spandex.

It was through this shoot that I got connected with Freedom Fry, a perfect example of LA networking.

They’re playing a show this weekend, and I’m making a new set of outfits! Can I ever say it enough?: I love working with these guys!
