Mermaid fashion


Okay, so I am preparing for my wonderful long weekend event at Kim Caldwells Artistic Affaire Les Sirenes. I have my supplies and all my vendor stuff ready to go, but now what to wear? There is a mermaid jean contest going on, which I had NO DESIRE to participate in. Not because it didn't sound fun, but I knew I would be overwhelmed with creating things for vendor night. I also have this mortal fear of wearing any kind of "costumie" type outfit. Don't get me wrong, I love to see how all the fashionable ladies dress up, but it's not for me. Strange because I was after all a theatre major in college! But for me a costume was what put me in that mode of the character, so as I character, I can wear anything! But for little ole me, I just want to be little ole me, jeans, crocs, and no makeup!! So that's why I am surprised to say, that during my trip to downtown LA, I found a little mermaid inspiration! I am not going to join the contest, because it's hard enough to even wear the jeans! The treasures I collected are above, but you will have to wait and see the final product! As a side note when I went to the thrift store to find a pair a jeans to bling, I found a pair of Rock Revival jeans that fit me, for $6.50, regular retail: $186. Whoo hooo! What a Find! This will be my last post before Les Sirenes. I will be back with pictures video and TONS of goodies to share!

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet comment about my studio, Denise. Did you see where I posted another message about the contest? You can decorate a skirt or any type of pants instead of jeans...just trying to make it fun for everyone who wants to participate. Can't wait to see you!!!
    hugs, Sherry
