Yeah, I’m just a bebop baby, and I don’t take nothing from no one! 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! 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! You 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. 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! 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. 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! 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! “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 “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.

There was a girl who lived by the sea, and friend-ed a mermaid who was too perfect to be. They shared solemn emotions hard to control, There hearts were connected, mind body and soul. With each magical creation her life was sewn, and with her siren friend she felt less alone. Talking and Playing under the starry lights,endless inspiration filled so many nights. Here is a letter I wrote about my dear sea dwelling friend Marina. Mermaid Tears destroy all fears. Now that you know the story, I feel it is time I part ways with my Marina’s Tears. Handmade with love, pearls, broken jewelry, crystals, gold wire, tiny shells, and a magical flower. The beaded necklace itself came from an Island in Brazil I got years ago, and the vile from the bottom of the ocean. Share this necklace with a best friend for whom circumstances causes distance.

I am just in love with this vintage romper I scored at work last week. It is like a corset, breathing, and eating are overrated anyway. Tiny pink roses swirled with green leaves, embroidered to girly perfection. I had to wear it right away so I made some tea, put on my vintage dream house playlist, and got dolled up. I rolled up some faux bangs,threw on a pink bandanna, and pulled my hair into pig tails. Then some pearls, cute lace tights, pink pumps, and little pink sheer robe. Then I sat in the garden sipping tea and reading a 1978 book on How to Break Into Motion Pictures, Television, commercials, and modeling. By Nina Blanchard. All the while I am playing the role of a Lolita Loving young actress in the 80s, living in a pink trailer in Hollywood and planning on sending in my head shots. Should I use a pink envelope? I love pink flamingos, tea, martinis, pillows, roses, occasional whiskey, lolly pops, magazines, Pilates, pearls, pink fur, lingerie, stuffed animals,the beach,and sparkles. Back to make believe. This book is very amusing, The Doors to success: Talent Personality, beauty, discipline, hey I got that, I spent my lifetime training. Note to self, Auxiliary skills are must, as self consciousness limits freedom of movement. Dance, speech classes, and acting training a must, now time to find an agent. Look attractive, but don’t do a number. Oh, and open your mouth, now is not a time to be shy. Use your Assets. Do you have a beautiful smile, use it! Do you fit the emotional requirements? There is a test you know. First question why do you want to be an actress? What will you do if your not successful If your husband, wife, girlfriend, or boyfriend dose not want you in the business? Would you cut your hair? This book is a tad intimidating. But when I make it I am going to say…..Its the only thing in the world I want to do. Making these bobby pins my bitches! Seriously, you have to, or else they twist and make you manic. Take pretty baths, you only live once. This pic is not mine but it is everything! I love gold and dusty rose pink, and am scary obsessed with babydolls, stockings,and vintage lingerie. What I dream of, where I wish I could live out my days. I will forever love boas.
Halloween is my favorite holiday(runs in the family), so I celebrate the entire month of October. My mom is an amazing seamstress/costume designer, and she always made a big deal around Halloween. We had the best costumes, me and my brothers, stitched and handmade to perfection. We were poop as hell but my mom always made it work, you can’t buy talent.We would all decorate, sit around and watch horror films. So many Horror films, especially the campy B ones. I loved Freaks! Halloween decor would stay up through December, and some would make it all year. We were different, raised to be creative. Our favorite shows were Twilight Zone, Tales from the Crypt, Elvira show, Are You Afraid of the Dark, and goosebumps even! My mom got me into David Lynch, and John Waters films very young! It might have something to do with why I am such a weirdo. So I took after her in a way, I make the absolute most out of October, dress as crazy as I can, and make a bunch of cool Halloween stuff.
Halloween thus far: A trip to the Whaley House, partying with Beetlejuice, wearing my favorite lace and sequins bone blouse I made, dancing with the dead in skeleton tights and stripper heels, lacing my hair with skeletons, and decorating my lashes with big black feathers for my wicca goth costume. More costumes and recipes to come.
