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

ZERO Alternative

zero I Love the smashing pumpkins, and lived in a black long sleeve ZERO Tee as a teen!!! Anyways, I found this amazing silver leather, high waist pencil skirt at work and I have never seen one like it in a while. I instantly was taken back and felt like strapping on dirty fairy wings, and going to a coffee shop. I went home and had to paint ZERO on it. It is nostalgic, 90s, alternative, something you would buy at the Catwalk, or Gamma, Gamma in the day. So this size 8 vintage gem is up for sale at http://macymarie.storenvy.com/ zero22 These black swan mini poof earrings are for sale as well. Made from vintage earrings!blacks

The last two days I have been feeling really creative and making tons of bad ass stuff. I made a bunch of hand dyed denim cut off shorts and vests, hand painted them, studded them, and added some patches. I love the Alien Babe ones! I also made another badass shoe with MOD PODGE! I used some Steve Madden Platforms and rainbow glitter for these babies. I adore them. I finished my Adventure Time Fin purse, its made from sequins, leather, and glitter. Last I made more necklaces with my favorite things. I drank mass amounts of coffee and knocked out a bunch of cute stuff. I love making clothes!meow8Meow
