Miss Aniela has earned a spot among my favorite photographers.

I would love to take a photo like this one day (I’d be drooling over this image even if it had no subject and were simply the library)!

Her Surreal Fashion series is stunning…full of rich, unique scenery.

I Don’t Get Fashion: “ME!”

Posted in absurd, clothing, fashion, humor with tags , , , on July 8, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Okay, this shirt is patently absurd, but it’s so bad that it’s actually kind of intriguing and mesmerizing.

While I’d never personally wear it, I’m completely entertained by its existence. Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what the statement of this garment may be (aside from the obvious)?

All I could come up with is “Head of the Narcissist Convention.”

I Don’t Get Fashion: Crazy Runway Looks

Posted in absurd, fashion, humor with tags , , on June 18, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I do understand the impractical nature of runway creations, and can appreciate the artistry of the moving sculptures on the catwalk. But some designs are just ULTRA absurd. Here are a few:

I’m refraining from commenting on each one for fear the sarcastic overload would break the internet.

This next one is my favorite. It’s really…something…isn’t it?

Starstuff Clothing

Posted in clothing, design, fashion, space, wish list with tags , , , , on May 28, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I am SUCH a sucker for galaxy print clothing (or galaxy printed ANYTHING I guess). Starstuff Clothing now has a kickstarter campaign to vastly expand their range of items and significantly lower the price.

The company designs T-Shirts, Dresses, Tank Tops & Socks that feature the natural splendor of the Universe itself. They only use real celestial images, and the result is excellent. Even better, the threads themselves are dyed in their process, so these products don’t contain the characteristic stiffness of some printed shirts (I’ve certainly ordered a few from other companies and been sorely disappointed by that!).

I really look forward to seeing the ladies’ t-shirts and dresses!

Pink Skeleton Wedding Dress

Posted in clothing, fashion, wedding with tags , , on May 23, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

A Google image search ties this dress to Lucky 9 Designs, but I don’t see it in the photo albums there (I discovered it on Pinterest). At any rate, here’s something for the VERY offbeat brides in the audience:

PINK SKELETON WEDDING DRESS!

Have you or would you ever wear a wedding dress like this? I would probably go more traditional (believe it or not!), but I admire the artistry.

Um, just throw enough leftover crap excavated from couch cushions, past holiday waste and candy dishes on top. VIOLA…festive cake!

Lucia Giacani: Under My Skin

Posted in anatomy, fashion, photography with tags , , on January 21, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I’m a bit torn about fashion photography. I love the artistry involved in some shoots, but hate to support the rampant pressure to develop eating disorders in the industry.

Lucia Giacani has a series I can’t help but love. Matching makeup to anatomical models? Yes please!

I really want to do a shoot like this with the anatomical torso model my best friend gave me years ago.

Tie Story

Posted in clothing, fashion with tags , on January 19, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I happen to be an extremely feminine creature in all ways, but sometimes I take note of the fact that if I were a man I would undoubtedly have a collection of bizarre and interesting ties.

Tie Story makes me want to just start wearing this accessory myself with button down shirts (the one problem is that standard ties are WAY too big for my diminutive frame…maybe I can find skinny ones).

My other absolute favorite store in the tie market is Cyberoptix. Great stuff.

It’s all in the Pants!

Posted in absurd, advertising, clothing, fashion, humor on January 12, 2014 by bettiemuldoon

Sansabelt is actually making a comeback. Perchance the advertisement is not completely real, but Eldridge Cleaver DID in fact market the “front and center” design below. What more can be said. Discuss amongst yourselves.

Simon Costin for Alexander McQueen

Posted in anatomy, fashion, illustration on January 10, 2014 by bettiemuldoon

McQueen created his own ‘museum of woman-monsters’ in his second couture collection for Givenchy, Eclect Dissect, shown in July 1997. In the period leading up to to the show, his art director Simon Costin combined the late Victorian costumes McQueen was then looking at with with a series of animated skeletons and muscle men from the sixteenth-century anatomical plates of Andreas Vesalius in a series of collages.
