A sketch I did of a Speakeasy Jazzbaby. Simply put, I want to make this! I'm thinking Navy and Pewter. How Mackie is that fur cacoon coat? Nothing like Navy fox fur to get your motor running... sweet sweet Navy Fox Fur.
Halloween 2011 was a raging success!! Our Gender Bent Wizard of Oz cast was the toast of New York!
Being the wicked witch was so much fun! Just as fun was making this spectacular costume! The original inspiration was Bob Mackie's Vegas Masterpiece: Jubilee! I feel the effect was successful since it was difficult to keep myself from dancing around like one of those epic ladies! There is no greater satisfaction as a designer than stepping back from a project and honestly being impressed with yourself. It's not an arrogant feeling, more like a geniune surprise at what you're capable when you allow yourself to get carried away. I want everything I make from now on to be on this level. I raised the bar, now I must live up to my own standard.
A detailed photo inspired by Unmistakably Mackie.
The original sketch...It turned out pretty good, if I don't mind saying so myself.
Now I need to figure out what my next project will be... any suggestions? Maybe Bob Mackie has a project in mind for me? I'll be anxiously awaiting my orders Mr. Mackie!
