- Studio Project of the Week:
As you might expect from two such compulsively crafty individuals as ourselves, Halloween has always been kind-of a big deal for us. This week we spent some time glorying in our past halloween triumphs (or our moms') while we worked on this year's couture creations.
Clearly.... Just... Well, I think it's obvious that we haven't changed much.It's a serious and grave undertaking to decide on what to be for halloween. It only gets SERIOUSER as we get older.A good halloween costume is warm, comfortable, flattering, funny and a little scary. We took all of these elements into consideration as we pondered the very important choice of this year's costumes. With our powers of BRILLIANCE combined, we had the ultimate revelation that we should be... A SQUID AND SHARK (hammerhead).
See a butt(fin)load more photos of these, the only outfits we will ever wear again, on our flickr pages: Lucy's and Nora's.
- Studio Obsession of the Week:
We recently tracked down and rented entirely undervalued and out-of-print movie, "The Legend of Billie Jean." If you have a crazy indie movie store near you, GET YOU THERE and rent that mofo.
It's the story of a girl and her brother (Helen and Christian Slater) in the eighties who ride a scooter and get into trouble so they run away and have crazy fun scary awesome haircutty times. Then they get comeuppance from mean grownups and move to Vermont (spoiler alert!).
We were so empowered by this brand of eighties rebellion (it involves ONE long dangly earring! ONE!) that we decided to make T-Shirts to memorialize our Billie Jean Love.
- Studio Jam of the Week:
From the Legend of Billie Jean soundtrack, and featuring the aforementioned one-dangly-earringed haircutty awesomeness, it's Pat Benetar's "Invincible!"
- Studio Happening of the Week:
We were tipped off from Nelly that the Steppenwolf Theater was liquidating their costume and props shop, selling off a bundle of crazy items for one dollar each! So we grabbed our intern and hustled down there, where we braved the crowd of crazy theater people to get our hands on some weird and awesome stuff.
You can see a selection of these items on display in our murder credenza!
- Kitty Photo of the Week:
Are you guys excited for Halloween?
