Thanks to my husband taking on the domestic role in our home I was able to finish this pixie dress wall hanging. On my last post there were a few comments about it looking like an "Alice" dress. I can see it!
The true inspiration was the French Revolution. While working on the dress I had Coldplay's Viva La Vida in the CD player.
The first pixie dress was created while listening to The Lord of the Rings. The nine CD long tale was read by actors, complete with sound effects, for a radio show. I listened the whole way through two times before the dress was finished. Not sure how many plays Viva La Vida got but I can safely say it was more than twice.
The skirt is made of leaves I used in a Halloween themed store window.
So glad I saved them!
I knew I would need them at some point. (big eye roll from husband)
FYI, I've given up decorating store windows for the moment. Window decorating grew and expanded my creativity but the time vs financial gains were to far apart. I'm VERY thankful for the experience. And you never know, I might give it another whirl sometime down the road.
Okay, back to the dress. The neckline trim is made out of a strip of fake fur, old buttons and beads. I think new pictures in natural lighting are needed. Glad to have finished.
I have a free day tomorrow......to start my next project!
Eva and my eye rolling husband Darrol. I hit the jackpot with this one folks.
He's a keeper!
