easy chair

I bought this red spike Christmas decoration thing at the Paper Source a few days ago along with two others and knew I had to make it a necklace the second Yokoo suggested it. It's a little big and can be somewhat uncomfortable but makes a great ninja star and that's the point of clothes anyway!It feels weird as a necklace on me since it is about the size of my head so today I wore it like you might a purse...it looked like I had a spiky red parasite on my hip.
Aw, it's like the little sister I never had.
The weather was sooo nice and springy today (liked this wall for pictures though) and I actually walked somewhere other than school. Yes, that's right. Going through Nesquik withdrawal is difficult so I took it upon myself to walk the full block to the store and buy some.
Growing up every day, I tell ya.When looking at FW runway pictures, I've always paid more attention to the heads of the critics "itching" their noses or looking rather moose-like for a split second while the camera goes off rather than the heads of the models. I don't know why? This editorial makes me think more about hats though..maybe something to try with NINJA STAAA.

you could make some spikey mohawk out of those, or some scary cap sleeve contraption, or perhaps a skirt, sittings overrated right?The would look totally amazing coated in pvc, i kind want to put them on my clothes now...

Isabel said...

"it's like the little sister I never had" - just made me laugh out loud!
You have no idea how much the idea of a little sister being like a spiky red parasite rings true...

Jessica said...

corrie said...

I just completely cracked up at "it's like the little sister I never had!"

Strangely, as an only child, I kind of get what you mean. That and that ninja star/xmas ornament totally looks like it could come to life any minute now.

bobb said...

Lots of coolness here - the spiked ornament, the "little sister" comment, the Lego hat, etc.

You should try making it into a brooch and pinning them onto your clothing! =) I can see you wearing something like that.

Anna Elizabeth said...

LOVE the idea of a hat. Somehow reconstruct it maybe...its hollow inside right? Look at me, all carried away. :)

OMG Tavi, just got turned on to your blog. I've got this killer origami whale pattern. It takes so long to make, like an hour. But when you're done, you made a whale, how cool is that?! We should craft sometime, and I'll tell you why you should totally not support Papersource.
