Peacock Dress

I'm about 2/3 of the way done with my goal of making new dresses/skirts for 2009! Whoa!
Here's the latest:
Peacock Feather Dress

I wish I could explain why I'm into peacock feathers lately. At some point (when I know what to use it for) I'll be embroidering one as well. For now I'm rather pleased with how this screen print came out (even if it's a little smudged in the eye. Oh well!) Next up is a skirt with pockets made from a feather print I found at Hancock a few months ago. Hmm, I'm going to have to look up what feathers symbolize. I'm just surrounding myself with them!

Also, I'm excited to announce that it looks like I'll be putting some of my embroidery pieces on display at the Hotei Gallery in Rogers Park. I went in there on Saturday and spoke with one of the owners who told me that if I had artwork they'd be happy to put it up! It was THAT simple. On top of that, they're hosting an erotica exhibit/benefit this Saturday and some of my crocheted penises will be on display. I made six of them over the weekend. :)

Things are looking pretty good right now. I'm also in the midst of getting a bunch of monoglues together for auditions with my acting coach. Hopefully I'll be able to find some auditions soon!

Happy Monday ya'll!
