The final result of my Japanism - Yuki Onna design with moodboard describing my process
Just discovered rococcopunk. YIPPIE KI YAYYYYY!!!!
Guess who is looking forward to Christmas! I made the Christmas hat back in my school years.
Took my design off the mannequin yesterday. It was a great relief to me that it worked so well on a body too and that it is both good looking and wearable. Experimented with the use of the straps to other ways of draping and found styles that i really couldn’t imagine before i made them. Sewed the rest of the design today, including the straps that is now the same fabric as the rest of the style. I also dyed the tips of them with indigo yesterday. Have been at the school for 13 hours today, so I am really exhausted now. But in a good way :)
Haven’t worn this blouse for ages. What a shame. Spiced up my dreads with some felt yarn. Because Start Wearing Purple!
Blouse: Isabell Khristensen, Skirt: Religion, Self-made bird necklace
FINNALY! Now this is the final draping of my yuki-onna design and I now just have to sew it all together. The style is way more simlified than the others and both the japanese and danish aesthetic kinship is definitely more clear now. The style can be worn in many different ways depending on how you tie the straps around you.
There is going to be a skirt underneath it, a quite simple one, in a light fabric with indigo dip dye in the bottom. It will have straps in it too so you can drape it to a shorter length.
Been looking at these earrings for a looong time now, and finally bought them. Lets call it a Christmas present for myself! Anyways, they inspired me to make this quick “Dia de los Muertos-coord”. Would wear other stockings with it.
Earrings from MONKI (buy them, they are amazing), fringe top from Religion.
Sick and grey and tired, and dressed because i have to get out of my hiding.
