A New Idea
I just had one. It occurred to me while watching a video this morning posted by one of my favorite bloggers, Thera.
This idea is this -- to create outfits inspired by different animals. The outfits will be fairly-normal (in that you could wear them in public) but they will possess a distinctive animalism. The outfits won't be costumes, but my makeup may be more extreme than one might wear to work.
An underlying genesis of this idea is my grave dissatisfaction with being limited to photographing myself indoors. I want to go outside! I want to pose in front of trees! I want my skirt to flow on a swing!
My first idea is a butterfly. Their multiple colors, their flitting beauty. You may be surprised to learn I already own butterfly wings, which I've worn on the blog before. Time to pull them out of the closet and strap them to a quasi-butterfly outfit.
A second idea is a cat. Who doesn't like cats? I can just picture myself painting whiskers on my face.
What do you think? Would this work as a project? Have you ever done anything similar?
