So this dress, teetering between the names Candy or Sugar Puss... came to me already with attitude. I feel how my body moves differently as a result of her poofy body. She makes me want to arch my back a little, to over exaggerate my posture. She wants lace, and lace and more lace! She wants to feel flowy and ruffly and she wants to make sound when I walk. She started off with a train, but that train has now been tied up in a little knot in the back. The train was getting very dirty and it was getting difficult to clean the stains out of the satin. STAIN SATIN... oh I love those words together like that.
Tonight I am going out to Pecha Kucha at the museum, I am going to be apart of a great new idea presented by artist Kat Clear. In a sense she is creating a circus, but using the circus as a metaphor for artists. Just as all circus performers were required to be jacks of all trades,( ie. selling tickets, operating rides, making banners, and putting on a performance) an artist is required to wear several hats: creator, promoter, businessman, and showman. It will be a fantastic! The dresses are of course going to fit into this project in their own special/spectacular/spectacle way.
