Thrifting on a Sunday

 What did you do on the weekend? Well let me tell you that I got pretty lucky thrift shopping (Hehe.) But, before I show you what I found, I'm going to show you my outfit of the day.

I was digging through my mums stash of junk jewellery and found this faery ring (I like spelling it like that :D) Maybe you can't really see but one of her legs fell off. When I found her, the leg was bent the other way, so I tried to fix it but, you know! fell off -_-. I like to call her the demented faery as an evil teen would (MWAHAHAHAHA!)

What I wore:
Red lolita headband: Thrifted
Black jacket: Thrifted
Blue dress with white collar: Thrifted
USA badge: Market
Fluffy (It's a dog by the way) bag: Thrifted
Demented faery: Mums jewellery collection
Mustard tights: Dangerfield
Detachable sock ruffles: Made by mwah
Saddle shoes: mine.

Guess what, I bought my first two records :D One is an Abba album and the other...GREASE!! It even opens up. LOOOOVE IT!

I also found two troll dolls, a pair of brown brogues, a little hat brooch, a yellow dress and a pink dress. The pink dress reminds me of something Weetzie Bat would wear. The Flowers look like palm trees which is described in the book to be her surroundings.

I'm going to shorten both of the dresses, so they don't look so nanny :) I also found a Mickey Mouse soft toy, I'm thinking of adding some straps to him making him into a bag.
I also added my new white eyeliner to my collage because it was something I bought that day. I heard that if you apply white eyeliner to your waterline it makes your eyes look bigger, more awake. I thought teens would need that since they're asleep most of the time :)

I'll update you soon about my adjustments to my new thrifts, but until then check out some of these blogs I keep an eye on.

Pipe cleaner crown: Handmade by meeeee.
My favourite Drop Dead Fred T-shirt: Dangerfield.
Bow belt: Op shop find.
Black skirt: Target.
Pink gloves: We will never know :O DUN! DUN! DUN!
Cray cray tights: Can you believe that these are from the op shop?
Docs: Op shop find.

Big eyes, cats and Boy George.

Well, It's that time of the month, and by that I mean that time when I show you my latest drawings of yayness. Yay! I have been experimenting with the eyes on my characters and using details to make them interesting.
This first stylish, pastel beauty is Sassy Lassie. I love her shoes.

Here is Linnie, she is supa bad-ass with her awesome boots, pink hair and tutu. I'm getting better at drawing hands, curly hair and doe eyes.

When I started drawing dreamy doe eyes I thought it would be a fabulous idea to draw a daydreaming schoolgirl. Her name is Oba, and lets just say she is dreaming about the lovely dress she will be buying after school.

With all of these new social internet thingys coming up all over the place, a lot of people (including mwa) must have Instagram. As a cat lover, I am always looking up adorable kitties to keep my 'happy levels' full; along the way I found Hamilton The Hipster Cat. No he isn't a member of a gang or anything like it sounds, he has a MUSTACHE! There happened to be an art competition held for who could draw the best Hamilton. Of course I couldn't resist and got sketching straight away. Unfortunately I didn't get into the finals but I still adore my big eyed version of Hamilton The Hipster Cat :)

As you may know, In my last post I was dressed as the amazing and fabulous Boy George mixed up with some other awesome peeps I admire. As the days passed my mum was begging for me to draw this amazing man in makeup, eventually I confessed that I too wanted to try to make this artwork of epicness, and here it is :)

Over time when I go out with my mum to the shops I always wish I had money and then I imagine opening up a shop to get that money. Selling cartoons, badges and such Is something I'd enjoy and when I do open up that shop this will be one of my products, Foxy moxie. I love the look of foxes, their fuzzy red fur and their beady eyes, I just feel like I want to hug them at times, but of course they will rip my face off so I think I'll just stick to hugging my imaginary foxes... in my mind ...all alone :)

Do you remember in my last "What I Drew" post I started to experiment with photoshop by colouring in my pictures? Well I've decided to send my girl "MYLO" to the photoshop studio. I thought it would be super crazy if she had gradient hair. I also like the idea of her wearing a sweet pastel dress with sky high punk boots. It all comes together perfectly.

Before I end this post with the usual Happy drawing I want to make you all aware that there is an awesome blog out there, you know in blogesphere, which is called Self-Constructed Freak. She works with Rookie Mag and she does most of the D.I.Y posts. I think she is super cool, check her out!

Happy drawing

Boy Bjork in pink

I'm all about Boy George today. We all know he is a music AND fashion icon. He is super rad with the rags in his hair, colourful makeup and sharply shaped brows, it isn't all about him in this outfit, you could say Bjork is in there and some Andy too (Pretty in Pink.) Just some of the super awesome people I look up to in one outfit is pretty cool right? :)

 Yes, I did happen to make something in this outfit. Is it the vest? The top? Nah, Its the skirt, the Andy skirt. I call it the Andy skirt because it looks like something she would wear with her cray cray thrift shop finds.

Do you like the hat? I found it at the op shop of course. I like to call it my Vivienne Westwood hat. It looks Westwood right?

 I really enjoyed taking these photo's, especially with the dramatic poses.

What I wore:
Vivienne Westwood inspired hat: Op shop find.
Patchy top: Market.
Plaid top: Op shop find.
Andy skirt: Handmade by mwah.
Grey socks: Target I think
Docs: Op shop find.

Happy Sewing
