Chanel’s Version of the Platform

Posted in Shoes, Structure & Form by Michelle on January 4, 2011

Is this for real? WordPress says this is my 100th post? I must post a lot…

I love Chanel’s take on the platform for their Spring 2011 line. I especially love the knotted rib-caged platforms (below, at left) in yellow, black, and grey. I want! I want!!! The cutout at the heel totally revamps the old platform a la Skater Girl. Vintage inspired, no?

If anyone is at all interested in taking this wordpress domain, http://thenorthwind.wordpress.com/, please contact me. Deleting a blog is permanent on WordPress and I would hate to just throw it away. Someone save it!!

Silent Hill Nurse

Posted in Costumes by Michelle on September 14, 2010

OK. This is a costume that I’ve always wanted to try – a creepy dead zombie nurse from the movie, Silent Hill. I never played the game but it looks like the movie version is creepier. The second pic is just cosplay. I know! Amazing, right?

There are so many tutorials out there on how to make the dress, mask, make up, and added tips to make it look extra creepy. Really – I don’t think it would cost too much to make everything, maybe $50 if you shop smart.

Fall 2010. This clutch looks creepy. The magenta doesn’t hide it either.

Ann Demeulemeester Headpieces

Posted in Accessories, DIY, Fashion, Structure & Form by Michelle on September 10, 2010

I’ve been continually eyeing these feather headpieces, by Ann Demeulemeester, for months and months – with no other reason than that they are so pretty. They’re of the few pieces of art I continually revisit, just to look at and sigh. At $700+ there’s no way I can afford it. Time to DIY it!
