Here's a my latest post for my Burdastyle page:
- High School Mascot Costume -This was a collaboration between David Caimbeul (Head & Feet) and Metropolitan Frock (Body). It's a cool story really. I met David on Labor Day at Hancock Fabrics, while there with another designer friend of mine. He asked a few questions about how to proceed with making the body of his costume...I gave some pointers and 6 weeks and 2 days later Hootie was born. We're both working professionals and had to squeeze in time to work on the project. We used Hancock as my office for fittings and delivery. The guy is ultra talented. He made the head from heavy duty packing foam and even installed a fan in the head to prevent overheating. I was blown away at the end result. This was by far the most fun I've had creating a project. I truly love helping other's visions come true. If you're in TN, check out the event where Hootie will be dedicated to David's Alma-mater.The event is on Friday, October 22nd. See Facebook invite here Hootie the Owl.I'll have better pics once the event is over so.....Stay tuned, there's more to see.
