Chic way to be a tourist in NYC!
my interpretation of Elsa’s “Let it go”
The gif set speaks to me today.
Frozen is the best Disney (non-Pixar) animated feature since The Lion King and it had the WORST marketing campaign in the studio’s history.
I stand by both assertions.
And by the “so you call all go fuck yo selves” sentiment.
marketing campaign? what marketing campaign?
Oooh! Great question! Because you’re obviously wicked talented and creative and smart, show it in what you wear! If you can wear pieces you made, that’s PERFECT! I would say start with the homemade pieces then find pieces to go with what you’ve made. And then keep the other clothes/accessories simple and low-key. Let your art shine! But also- definitely not a bad idea to show how fashion forward you are! That’s definitely part of being a costume designer, right? Being aware and up to date on fashion and current trends?
But most important- colleges want to see who YOU are. Follow your gut and wear whatever the fuck you feel! They don’t want you to pretend to be someone you’re not. They want to see the best version of yourself. And actually- isn’t that what we want to present every day?
You Can Take The Girl Out Of…
Dress - Vintage - Montreal - I do not remember the name of the store I bought this in… I was on tour and in Montreal for Thanksgiving 2012. My family and I stumbled upon a ton of adorable vintage shops with amazing, affordable stuff. This was my favorite and I simply couldn’t resist after I realized how “Mary Poppins” this dress was! I picked it off the rack, just thinking it was cute. I didn’t realize until I had it on my body that it looked just like my costumes! The seams, the buttons, the colar, the velvet, the back, the skirt- all of it. I started wearing it to all the press days on tour because I thought it was hysterical. (And it’s an amazing dress!) It’s kind of a tricky dress. I never know how to wear it and have struggled with finding shoes to wear with it… Still working on it! But it’s a little shorter than I would have designed it, so I think black tights work best. Let me know if you have any other ideas!
Umbrella- A christmas gift from my brother who MADE that parrot head from scratch! He even TALKS! My brother is wicked talented.
Maybe not “Who I’m supposed to be” but “Who I am”. What I want to wear today, I don’t want to wear today. Who I am today is not who I am tomorrow.
