LISA FRANK PARTY SKORT

by

I always enjoy making outfits for friends: working on the fit, imagining how they will energize the garments, what kind of adventures they will find. This outfit was commissioned by my friend Sara for another friend’s Lisa Frank themed birthday party in Los Angeles. She sent the fabric and her measurements and one request: matching scrunchie!

Inspired by the 90s theme, I went for a party recess concept that could only mean skort. This one has a cotton lined crotch panel which makes it perfect for bike riding and grinding on the dance floor.

Of course there are pockets!

The tie die lycra has a holographic splatter all over it, which I enhanced with neon pink and holographic lycra accents. I used my serger to make a rolled hem with neon threads, to echo retro lettuce hemming, but kept the hems flat for a cleaner finish.

The top is reversible, depending on what colors she wants to feature on the front.

LADY LEWD Mardi Gras costume

by

The plan was to head back to California in early January, but luckily plans aren’t forever. Through the help of many friends, I was able to stay in my city and contribute my own art to my favorite time of year.

I landed a dream gig designing costumes for LEWD, a sub-krewe of Krewe du Vieux (considered the start of parade season and a spectacle of weird and raunchy satire). For KdV’s 30th year, the theme was XXX and my group’s float was CaliguNOLA (or: The Fall of the NOLAn Empire). Over three weeks and an inconvenient illness, I designed and sewed nine costumes for that parade. I was working around the clock, even called in my crafty lovelies Maria and Patrick for last-minute help, and was hot gluing LED wreaths at the Den as the parade gathered. It was exhausting and exhilarating, and I can’t wait to do it again.

One of my favorite creations for the parade is Lady LEWD, a Medusa / Godiva hybrid with a thrilling laugh and a lot of sass.

The gold spandex bodysuit has sparkly pink nipples and a luxurious bush, and is topped with a sheer red sequin gown. This hot momma decorated her own mask, and was accompanied by her Golden God of a husband and her delightful snakey sisters. She rocked the night!

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.
