Pink Is a Way of Life

pinup1 Yeah, I’m just a bebop baby, and I don’t take nothing from no one!leatherrebel3leatherrebel  This Is my baby, no intentions on selling this one. Sometimes you have to make yourself something special. I have been working on this leather for years now and each piece is personal! Like the Deicide button was given to my little brother at the show and he gave it to me,its rare. The Misfits Pin came off the Coffin Box set I bought at Tower records in my teens. The big Pink Kawaii heart(just like mine) came from my friend’s line Lil Miss Alphabet.Love her. Complete with my Dollcult Barbie, Iconic Nikki Lipstick Pin!9 The Dr.Frank N Furter button is everything! I want to be him! My mom wore this pin on her leather when I was little. I always tried to steal it and was never successful. Only two valentines ago she sent it to me in the mail with her pink baby shoes, and other special pieces she wanted me to have. I cried! Tears of joy. We bonded hard of Rocky Horror Picture show! I even taught my 4th grade class the time warp for show and tell. It is Still my favorite movie of all time! Loved his leather!ho leathazYou can take the girl out of the street, but you can’t take the street out of the girl! Here is me in 1999 rocking my first leather as a baby gutter punk. Getting Turnt in the Horton Plaza Mall Bathroom. My friend Leah Took it, glad she did. 991099102 Being part of the punk scene was so inspirational. Going to shows was fun. Besides the music, the message, Non conformity, no fucks given, and fuck you! There were the coolest looks around! Girls and boys fully charged with colored hair, and one of a kind styles. Decorated Vests, Hand painted leathers, Pants sewn with dental floss, patches, buttons, lighter tops, studs, animal print, plaid, band shirts, bondage belts, spiked braclets,chokers, and other cool things. I wish I was as talented then as I am now or I would have graced the steets with this jacket sooner. I am finally making all the things I wanted to make then, but better! leatha  I decided to go with pink because This is my leather, and pink is my favorite color! Also just because I am wearing pink, dose not mean I can’t kick your ass any less hard than I can if It were in all black. Not that I advocate violence, I just never got the concept of looking weak because of a certain color. I was made fun of for wearing all black growing up too, people will say anything. Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder. A lot of people comment, you should throw more thrash metal on there dude, or Theme it all punk, all metal…whatever! I thought about those things due to social pressure, but standing out is not about fitting in.. Be yourself! That and, this is MY Jacket! SO that is why I have; Joy Division, Siouxsie, Cramps, Night of the Living Dead, Misfits,Thin Lizzy, Lou Reed, Megadeth, Maiden, SUB HUM ANZ, Black Flag, Bettie Page, Operation IV, Sepultura, Sex Pistols, Danzig, Marilyn, Bruce Lee, lots of Fucks,  Butthead, and Love is in Mixtapes! All stuff I love, am passionate about, and listen too often. Music that shaped me, and even saved my life. So it a story, aside being a fashion piece. 6 I started by painting counless layers of baby pink paint on the chosen sections and sleeves. Then I painted on the animal print because DUH! Then my little bro came over, we watched old punk films from my library, and went to town. It takes forever to Heavy a jacket and I haven’t done one like this before. I spaced them very close, and went through bags of cone studs. If you try this at home your fingers will be sore! I still have hours to clock in on this baby. I glued crystals in between the studs as well so it really sparkles!radf beauty2 These Pink Heart Platforms by Nikki Lipstick and Y.R.U. go perfectly with this jacket, a match made in Heaven. I love mixing pink and punk, tough and girly. Black and Pink look so good together too!beauty3pinup4 “It’s not my fault that I’m fucked up. I’m just a product of a selfish world. My whole life I’ve been an outcast. Now I don’t care, I don’t want to fit in anywhere!- Naked Agression pinup6“People are so quick to judge me. I do not care I will not change for them. There’s so much pressure to conformId rather be dead then act fake and end up like them!- NakedAgression. I love this band love her words,and values!pinup2I am also rocking a Nikki Lipstick Pink Stitches collar, a vintage spiked anklet, vintage black bodysuit, tutu skirt, doll leg tights, and a bondage belt I painted pink. Hair is N Rage Bubblegum pink, diluted with conditioner. Handmade the Hello Titty, Nail Polish, and black liquid eyeliner brooches.pinup5pinup7 Later, daddy-ospinup3 Love your life,love who you are,and love other for who they are. Pressure and guilt fuck people up more than what you think is killing them. God is Love.

I am not your ordinary doodle

love When I first found this white leather moto jacket I immediately thought of Holli Would from Cool World. A bombshell badass in all white, with her gogo boots riding on a white motorcycle. So I painted her on the back. I was obsessed with her! Still am. I love the way she talks,moves, and her attitude! The way she takes of her gloves. Her Bedroom, glamorous outfits, curves, dancing, obsession with Marlin Monroe and Old Hollywood! So seductive, and bad whats not to love,such a fun character. Femme Fataleholli Holli Would If She Could…..And She Will! holli2Every illustration and scene in the film is eye candy, Art. So dark, twisted, and Cool! I loved the city background art as much as the characters! But each obscure character has its own charm and personality. So I had to paint some of them on the leather as well.splatln

With pretty handmade ribbon ties.bluesnails  What better is there to do when your blue than shop! I really had to have this phone tho. If you want one its Valfre. I love her art, and the concept of this phone is genius. Shell Phone, Shellfies, and it looks like you are listening to the ocean when you are on it. It was the antenna that sold me tho. How Cute! People really turn there heads when they see it, and its so much fun. Everything I ever buy is second hand or from my designer friends, but sometime KAWAII purchases that warm the heart are worth every penny. It always inspires me and I design entire looks around it, haha. It inspired me to make these mermaid french tips! And ever since I discovered Boopsie Daisy and bought her “Sea How Cute I Am” print I’ve gone full mermaid. LOL. styyy The Little Chibi  Moon Nail is http://nailcart.tumblr.com/ vfLook at this stuff

Beach Rat Mermaid Queen

tc  I grew up at the beach, in California, date a surfer, and love the sun, surf, and sand. I love the culture that surrounds it, the vibe, and most of all the art. Surf and skate art is so detailed, colorful as well as comedic. Kinda like my style, LOL. Anyways…I’ve collected so many rad shirts over the years and have been cutting them up, and reworking them into wearable art. I cant believe I shredded my vintage baby blue T&C Steve Nazar  shirt, but I had to. These shirts have not been produced for a decade and are hard to find! An unknown dramatic split within the T&C organization and the artist’s characters…In short, the Logo never did as well without the Characters, and the Characters died without the Logo. Read about it here: http://www.stevenazar.com/whateverhappenedtothetccharacters.html  bgtnc

I’ve had this one forever! My heart! I put so much love and work into this vest.  I am very sentimental about each aspect, and a lot of my old personal patches and buttons adorn this baby. I handmade a lot of the brooches,and pins as well. I love the T&C ones! I lined it with my Beach Dog shirt, and sewed the little pocket on too. I hand painted the neon print, sharky, and Santa Cruz Art. I used Simpsons because I grew up not only watching it religiously, but answering all the trivia questions with my brothers and aunt at 711! We won every scratch off question, and lived off the free food, donuts, nachos, slurpies, and sodas, (different era) for summers! Well all the time, it was always sunny and we all lived for the beach. beach9 I put Spicoli because he is my first crush, Beavis & Butthead is life, A lot of Santa Cruz,buttons, Slime balls, Thrasher, pikachu surfing, tan booty, sharks, and Surf Punks. ACDC was my favorite beach music as a teen so I had to put it in as well. I like to tell a personal story in each piece I create. I create art, not tailoring to trends. beach8 Drinking Beer for Breakfast….when I go to the beach!beach8 I also put Elvis and Pin Up babes, because I was a rockabilly baby, and the culture used to be tied in with beach culture. Trader Vics to Hot rod surf. I used to rock a Hot Rod Surf shirt in High School,with Dickies shorts, babysitter shoes, and black velvet slippers from FAM BAM,  thought I was the shit, lol. beach1beach5 My baby is such a good surfer, even though he boasts more about his guitar playing, he is not the same with out the waves. He is a fish and will not come out ever! Surfing is more then a workout and looking cool! It is magical and heals your mind,body, and soul. It connects you to the earth and gives you faith! But lately we have not been that stoked. He has several injuries, tears, and spine problems from work and was away from surfing for almost 6 months now. It’s been hard on us but we are getting wet again. It hurts but sometimes you have to push through the pain, and fight with your mind. Like Bruce Lee! I put him on there too in shades! But we are doing stretches, physical therapy, healing and spiritual work as well as trying to see a doctor. Speaking of spiritual,I love to clean my stones and crystals in the ocean water.beach6 Be careful exposing crystal balls in the sun, it can really get hot fast and solar brand ya know!beach4 I made the bananas earrings too! If you havent noticed I live in my CRAP shades. I love this brand so much, the aesthetic, name and story behind them as well. beach3This is the LAW st alley! Lots of beer bonging, bowls, joints, partying, and puking took place here. radddtop4 Here are my beach faerie tops! I spent hours hand weaving and shredding these strands of rainbow tye dye shirts. I knotted and beaded each one as well. They have a ton of beach sayings, tiny Buddhas, plastic beads and butterflies. Oh how I will miss these!top2 I am obsessed with little jeweled cutouts right now!mauibeach3 My favorite babe right now! Adrienne, Shooting her new collection with mine. I love Little Black Diamond! http://www.littleblackdiamond.com/beach5 Go Glitters!beach4  Namaste SKYEbeach2 I decided to own my mermaid past life. I made the braid.

My alien fluffs, baby bottle clips, and papaya ring.pp http://macymarie.storenvy.com/ To grab all the cute stuff you see above! I handmade these adorable papayas too! beach1 Modeling with Sami Dollar! My rainbow fluffs are the best, hand sewn with love! styyyyl Rainbow Beach Party. mmrmrrmm Kiki Swim Bottoms by Little Black Diamond.

Inked Barbie Diary

lipsonly I am obsessed with glitter, and wearing it on my lips! So I was super excited to get a package full of makeup in the mail from Candy Rock Couture, introducing their new Line! Inked Barbie Cosmetics! Vegan and cruelty free! Coming Soon! I spent three days getting dolled up and trying out new looks with it all, and I am in love. So here is what I came up with. me Pretty tied up in the GlamDoll Glitter in Bi-Polar Barbie. I love the name as much as the product, and it is super glittery, and fine. I am wearing it over matte purple lipstick, Pansy by Lime Crime to be exact. As always I love colorplay, so first I went right into shades of purple and pink.  The Pearly White Cream eyeshadow in Holy Ghost is awesome. I use it as a highlighter under my brows, above my lip, inside corners of my eyes, cheeks, or wherever else I feel like making shimmer.DSC03405 The Lavender Snow, Dollust Dust, is so pastel and pretty. Perfect eye shadow for a soft nymph look, or ethereal snow princess. I always add a few drops of water or eye drops over the shadow and blend in circles gently with my fingertip for more shine and a long lasting hold. Then dust more on top. Here is my look!lips2 lips I applied powder, a cosplay wig sharp cat eyes, and tiny lavender hearts with lash glue. Then put on the most perfect doll lashes! Dreamdoll Lashes in Barbi-licious. I love them so much, and you get two pairs.  fdDSC03442DSC03441  So here are some of the fabulous materials I used to get my looks. m I am so grateful to receive and play with all this rad makeup. The packaging, and shimmery shades brought me back some happy memories. I have always been passionate about makeup, and really good at it. But, I couldn’t afford it as a kid and went crazy at all my rich girlfriends houses! They always had the best vanities. I was honored to be able to touch the makeup boxes and try on all the glittery stuff, lol. I would head to the mall with friends and go straight to the makeup counters right for Stilla, Mac, Nars,Tony and Tina (for glitter) Urban Decay,Hard Candy and more. I would try it all on, dream, learn, and cry it all off, cause I was a broke kid. But thank god for Drag queens,they taught me everything I needed to know and got me hooked on Ruby Woo Red Matte Lips. 4 Look, Even the Eyeshadow is  smiling! This is by far my favorite. Dollust Dust In Birthday Cake. The product lives up to the name, and shimmers so vibrantly. 3 I love clip in hair pieces as well! I cried when I saw this pastel rainbow one in my package. You can get this mixed color one now at http://www.etsy.com/shop/suicidebarbiebowtiq   The Inked Up Barbie Packaging is so fun too! DSC03462DSC03458 This is the Glamdoll Glitter in Teal Iced Dreams applied over reen Lip Gloss.DSC03479 I wanted a dramatic eye so I used face paint for my brows, Holy Ghost Cream shadow for highlights and to lighten up my brow. I also used pink facepaint for the hearts on my cheek and used the Birthday Cake Dollust Dust over it, and my lids. I used some of the Glamdoll Glitter in Bi-Polar Barbie too. DSC03476 I don’t care what people say I love makeup! We don’t wear it because we are insecure or don’t like how we look without it, in fact we look better! We wear it as an extension to our looks, outfits, and for artistic self expression. Of course to enhance our natural beauty, and cover our flaws, but not for idiots. DSC03388 Look out for  Inked Barbie Cosmetics, this fabulous cruelty line of products is coming soon. In the mean time check out http://www.candyrockcouture.com/

Sleepyhead

sleepyhead2 I have been making a limited edition collection of Wearable Art Peignoirs. Re worked vintage, decorated, by hand, dyed, stitched, and decorated with love. This Is My SleepyHead Jacket! A play of the candy Lemonheads, but with a victory curl. I love how it came out and was really hard to part with it. I already sold this beauty. The marabou yellow poms with the sparkly blue Gems are my favorite part, that and the little pink velvet rose bows. I am addicted to making little ribbon rose bow combos.lemonhead2 I made this adorable baby pink powder puff purse from a hat box! I love it. Kawaii Till I die.sleepyhead3lemonheadsleepyhead1 “I believe when life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade…and try to find someone whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.” -Ron White

Scream and Run Run Runway

bucket I have been working really hard on putting on a kawaii runway show. I painted cute pumpkin buckets for the models to throw out treats to the crowd. A battle of light and dark to display my personal struggle between the two worlds-styles was the story. I also wanted to showcase my love for costume, baby doll life, creativity, and accessories. It went beyond fabulous, and I went beyond tipsy. It was a celebration of self love, and getting dolled up. Every model killed it. The energy was so strong.  It was hours of playing dress up and having cocktails with pretty girls. My good friends drove to town to walk in my show, and celebrate with me! So Happy! I met new friends, and inspired love and self expression. We rooftop partied, and my friend and husband slept in their van at work.  In the morning I went to work, played more dress up, had hair of the dog drinks, and danced to T.S.O.L, Misfits, and the Cramps with my girl Kelsey. They slept over and we cooked and watched horror movies in bed. Then took the bus with my love and chilled in LA, attended Dripped and have been resting since. Well as much as I can get away with. show2 My friends, angels from LA, and total babes who drove down to walk in my show. kels My Cherry Blossom. cb A submissive, girly, pink, cherry blossom faerie,who dances with the dark. cb2 Faerie and mermaid nostalgia swirled for a lust for Halloween.sea This is my Sea Goddess look.
