HEYOO, unfashion and monster hats

Hey everyone! My classes have started up again and true to form, I have been too busy to post. Sad news bears. However, I have some pictures from one of my first projects of the semester! I am taking a class called (UN)fashion, in which we learn about world fashions, challenge our ideas of what fashion is, and make an outfit to wear to class each week. Wearing the outfit is different than designing for someone else because...YOU have to actually feel comfortable wearing it through the streets!
Anyway, last week I found a book in the library about street art and became obsessed for a minute. I watched the Banksy documentary, "Exit Through the Gift Shop"-- have you seen it?  I became really inspired by the artist Buff Monster.

My project is a dress I made from a Parsons Student Senate T-shirt. It was like a size extra large, or something.   I sewed in pink jersey panels, made new sleeves, tailored it into a dress, and painted some of my own monster characters on the back.
Here is the result:


Also, I made a monster hat!

I will keep you updated on my projects for this class. I am really really excited about it!
I also am running our class' blog, which you can view here!

Ooookey dokes, see you later!
