Climbing around

a long time since i had a what i wore post. actually since i had any post. but first, I HAVE BEEN SHORTLISTED FOR INTERVIEW AND PORTFOLIO REVIEW in Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore!! YAY!!! but that means i have to get my portfolio ready :boring
so anyways
that used to be my study table.. i have never studied on it though. it basically used to be the place where i would keep my school bag and school books(read dump)
 no this table is where i keep clothes that have to be repaired, altered, painted or turned into something else. behind are the books that i have been planning on reading since i was 14.

Purple Face

the thought of painting this on the t shirt came while i was having a conversation with my mother regarding the current obsession of skulls with most of the teen-age girls. its irritating.. Agreed i too am a teen aged girl who wears skull but i have been wearing it since the time i was in 5th grade i.e. since seven year.. and not since the time Avril Lavigne had become famous in mumbai.
as much as i remember skull is the upper cap like portion of the head and not the full face.. so i was just telling her that people should just draw the upper cap like portion and not the whole face.. so i made this.. first i had just done the things with the purple paint. after painting i realised that the distance between the face and the ears is too much.. yes those are ears and not headphones. so i drew the hair with a crayon to see how it looks.. and it looked pretty decent. then i covered the face with the sequins. and then painted the hair..

Materials Used:
1. Fevicril Acrylic Colours:

L’oreal photoshoot

i modeled for L’oreal Academy photoshoot. i will be getting the pictures after a month or so.. so i am just uploading few pictures that my hair-stylist took from her phone.. (apologies for the bad quality.)
There were three looks. this is the first one

for the second look they urled the right hand side of my hair using tongs and cut the left hand side. unfortunately i don’t have any pictures for that.
Nor do i have the photoshoot picture for the third look.. but it was the final one so it here to stay. this is my final hair cut

Pin Brooch

My best friend’s birthday is around the corner. And its her 18th birthday. so i thought this time i won’t buy her anything instead make something for her. And the only thing i am good at is Knotting threads together. so i made her this brooch. i used a wool, a satin ribbon and 7 different threads. i have already packed it an kept. just waiting for her birthday to arrive.
