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.

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!

WOLFIES at the pool

by

I’m deep in the glorious mess that is preparing for Burning Man (so many of you want fur suits this year!), so here’s a little project I did back in March. March was another time of extraordinary business, so sharing these outfits now is encouraging me in this current flurry of fabric.

Y’all know I sew outfits for my favorite glam synth band Story of the Running Wolf, but you don’t know how many outfits I’ve made. This particular wardrobe set was created for their DJ set at The Skybar at Hotel Mondrian in West Hollywood. Most of their outfits are black/silver based with neon details, created for their live shows at night. Since this was an outdoor daytime DJ set, we switched the color scheme to be mostly pink and blue, with gold accents.

This was such a fun party! I took my first Uber with half of the band, drank a ton of champagne in the fancy hotel room, bluffed my way into the party (of course I was on the list, but my companions were not), ate non-vegan pizza, didn’t get a sunburn, danced and jammed, took my second Uber, and was home by 9. I am a wild party animal!

I love sewing for these guys. Their style matches up with mine so wonderfully, and their input always intensifies the final product. I can’t wait to share some of the bigger projects we’ve worked on this year!

GLAM ROCK FANNY PACK

by

Venice DJ CHRNIK (the front of the centaur from Story of the Running Wolf) sent an emergency text asking for a “dope fanny pack” in 2 days. Coming right up!

IMG_4105 I had all these materials in my stash (what a wonderful stash it is!), and I whipped this up in a lovely evening. Some of the fabrics are from other costume projects I’ve done for the band and yet haven’t blogged.

Here’s the late-night process (from my Instagram):

IMG_4080

The sparkle vinyl exterior is one of my favorite materials! I adore the way it looks, and I’m getting to know its personality as I make more fabulous items with it. I used a metallic printed denim for the sides. The bag is lined with aqua ripstop fabric. The front pocket is a garment-weight vinyl and metallic printed spandex. The adjustable strap is a vinyl braid.

IMG_4093Nothing fancy happening on the back, since that area is resting against the body. I’ve played with the idea of adding a little pocket here, but that would be rather awkward to access while still wearing the fanny pack. I assume that people will be extremely un-sober when romping around festivals, so I try to keep the functionality simple and not make too many pockets to misplace a special something.

IMG_4088This fanny pack was a special order, and it can be re-created and customized! Email me about getting your own.

Fanny pack, belly buddy, hip purse, belt pocket: what do you call it?

STORY OF THE RUNNING WOLF

by

Back in March I was contacted by one of the members of Story of the Running Wolf to make a centaur costume for their upcoming music video. I had a great time working with Jeff on the design. The glorious beast makes his first appearance at 1:49.

I’m also an extra in the Masquerade scene, wearing a blue and gold, triangle and spiral jacket (that will be posted after some modifications) and a pink mask.

 

There was a premiere party last weekend at the Sayer’s Club in Hollywood, which was fancy and had super yummy cupcakes.

I’ve since made more costumes for Jeff and Josh. Our aesthetics really compliment each other, and we all have a good time giggling during fittings (my husband included!).
