Yippie ki-yay y’all, we’re off to the Glitter Rainbow Rodeo!

Obviously it was hard to pick just a few photos! Jason is a great photographer! But I think the two above are my favorite.

rainbow eyes I don’t think I need to even say it, but this is my most favorite outfit ever. If you’re coming to Lightning in a Bottle keep your eyes out for the rainbow mess that is me. Complete with rainbow eyelashes! Whenever Jason goes away on a business trip without me, he brings back fabulous makeup things.

These pants are perfect for dancing cowboys or Indians! They’re disco-tastic, super comfortable, and make me feel absolutely awesome. Seriously, you cannot stand still if you’re wearing these leggings.

Some people are afraid of tight metallic pants, but I’ve always felt like they glossed over parts of my body that I’m less comfortable with. From my experiences at Burning Man, I get more attention (from men and women, sexual and just plain awesome) with glittery fabric stretched over my body than when I’m completely nude. Which all adds up to say that you don’t have to have a perfect body to look perfect in metallic lycra.

I think this is my favorite waistband yet. It’s super comfortable and super sexy. Yeehaw!

I used a very stretchy silver lycra for the pants. The fringe is made from 5/8″ strips of foldover elastic, which comes in a million bright colors and has a great flow to it. The ends are all seared to prevent the elastic from fraying at all. The gold strip isn’t really functional, but I think it gives a nice fly attitude to the leggings.

As usual, all the materials came from Fabric Planet. As for the inspiration, there’s no telling where I get this stuff from.

I’ll definitely be using this same technique to make different color schemes. In the meantime, go ahead and order a pair on Etsy!

Of course I made everything else in the outfit too (except the amazing pinwheel), but you’ll have to wait a couple weeks till I have all that posted as well.

I recently decided that I need to “turn up the volume” on my designs. Y’all were thinking the same thing, right?

This jacket will be perfect for Burning Man, so I recommend buying it from my Etsy shop now!

The shell is a insane upholstery fabric that I can’t imagine on a sofa for the life of me. I can’t decide if it’s psychedelic puzzle pieces or a scrambled sunset. I used minky lining, which is softer than the fluffiest kitten of your dreams. I think it’s a zebra, but it could always be a white tiger. Instead of a wolf in sheep’s clothing it’s a tiger in zebra’s clothing!

I used plastic boning to keep the hood open, and the stiffness of the fabric keeps it pointing skyward. It’s like the Rainbow chapter of the KKK.

I absolutely love the teal pompom trim, and who wouldn’t? It’s bright, silly, and kitschy, and the pompoms move when you jump up and down. I used some golden fringe with a tribal design at the hem. It reminds me of tinsel fringe at the bottom of Mardi Gras floats! Basically this jacket is a mish-mash of all my favorite psychedelic fantasties.

Mystic Jigsaw coat zipper

Mystic Jigsaw coat As in all my coats, this one has a two-way zipper. It can be zipped up just like your average hoodie zipper, but there’s a second head that lets you open it up from the bottom. You can wear the jacket like a cape, and the zipper makes it easy to ride a bike and really move your legs without taking it off. Plus it’s bright purple.

I got an ungodly (atheist humor) amount of this fabric, so there will be plenty more pieces made, including vests, a laptop case for Mr. Siadek, and my own playa-rific jacket. Bet you can’t wait!
