Fashion Alternative

Last week, I was so busy that I forgot to put on my belt before I left for school. I did'nt realize my mistake till I was already trekking up the hill to our building and I had to pull my pants while I was carrying a bunch of crap. As soon as I got to my lab, I started looking for a rope. Unfortunately, I only found a wire that I tried to wrap around my waste and tied it up with pliers. As soon as I walked it broke... I was about to give up but I saw we had an extra phone cable... an imaginary lightbulb lights up....next thing you know I was wearing a phone jack for a belt. (ignore the blatant Hanes add and the flabby stomach)





Yesterday, they released the new cast for Bravo's "Project Runway". I thought about how hard it is to design and execute your design so I had a sudden urge to give it a try and squeeze out some of my creative juices. I gave myself an hour, a bunch of grocery store bags, clear tape and scissors. I'm soooo GAY.

Voila here's my work!


The top portion and the rounded skirt are Wal-Mart bags, the flower and the belt are made from the same Asian grocery store bag and the corset-type portion is actually a Target bag but I made folds to produce an interesting pattern.



The back portion is pretty much open except the two strings that holds the dress...how scandalous. Dont worry, I dont have plans on wearing it... mostly because I dont really have the urge to look like a cheap drag queen dressed up in the latest "derelict couture".
