I recently modeled for Emily Blong‘s new Broken Velcroe Land Shoppe on Etsy! She makes amazing fabric wall hangings out of felt and fleece, and also gothic / lolita / steampunk / weirdo accessories ::
This cute and soft snakie scarf has a hidden pocket and matching glove!
Lace bonnet with grossgrain ribbon and velvet roses. Instant Elegance!

If you’re in Los Angeles on July 29th, come to this crazy show to see all of the above in person. NVR-NDR, My Velcroe, Monomate, and Bubblegum Octopus are going to play in an intense fabric inferno art display warehouse, and there will also be a cool DIY store with some new Insidious Clothing skirts and dresses :D

I made a costume for Emily of My Velcroe, for the Halloween show at HM157. It was actually really miraculous – I made it in only 3 days, with all recycled fabrics, and only one fitting the night before the show! This was the first time I had made high-waisted shorts, and I’m quite pleased with the results ::
Emily dancing with her Bear
She wanted a 1920′s-esque bathing suit and a jacket with a detachable cape. The cape was already removed by the time I got my camera on the right setting :( I had the striped fabric left over from the Absinthe Faerie show I helped do costumes on. Emily found the fabric for her jacket at a thrift store, it’s a really intricate knit of a bubbly pastel jungle. The jacket is lined with pinstripe fabric that was going to be thrown away at my work. One person’s trash, sucka!
I think she had killed the Bear at this point in the show
Oh yeah, her shirt has a bow tie too! And tails in the back :) So cute!
