hELla cool…

July 2, 2009

hELla…EL wire. I have two firm projects I want to do, involving clothing and EL wire. There are many more in the recesses of my brain, I’ve been in love with the stuff since I first saw it. My lack of tools, skills, knowledge, etc., has thus far prevented me from accomplishing any of them.

HowEVAH! One involved my infamous Day of the Dead getup I love so dearly…a skull of some sort on the back of my playa coat (more on those later!) I just found this. I can cut it off and sew the whole thing on, I think. Add some muertes decor on my own.

Maybe get this thing, and sew it on something.

The other is a dress I found, that is red, orange and yellow, like a flame. So, I want to do some flames – something I’ve been planning to do on SOMEthing, eventually…it’s kinda cool to wear in the day, on its own, though. Dunno.

How am I going to carry stuff?

Pod belt and Camelbaks seem to be the primary recommendations. I don’t want my back getting all hot and sweaty and sore. This seems kinda neat, if not fabric heavy:

Lots of storage space, easy on and off (not a good thing, though…I’m not taking any of my usual bags, because I don’t want to lose them!) but a little aprony.

This one looks bad-ass, but tiny pockets (presumably unusuable) and a high price – but it glows!!

This is the idea I’m going for, and I hope to just cobble together some cargo pants from the $1-a-pound Goodwill to make one…I could get the plain black one, and add some EL wire, I reckon.  Sometimes I just get tired of making everything. Mostly because I’m just tired, period, but that’s another post for a different blog.   I need a robot to make everything in my head – free up some space in there!

Also, I dig this coat:

It’s a little 70s velour/polyester housecoat, but the overall shape I like.
