OK, I know you’ve waited a LONG LONG Loooooooong time to see this, but…. Drumroll please…..
Finally, I managed to finish the costume, the tutu, the elephant in the room, and get it installed at the Edinburgh Science Festival art trail! Wahooooooo! Why don’t you go along and have a look, it’s in Summerhall for the next two weeks (well just over one really!)!
If you don’t live anywhere near Edinburgh then here are some (not very great) pictures to whet your appetite!
I would like to say a HUGE thank you to allenomis for the use of the Amazing mannequin (designed and built by her and Brian at MAKLab Glasgow)
I just had to post this photo of a delightful women that I saw shopping with her granddaughter in Sainsburys last week. I thought she looked fantastic and really colourful.
I hope I’ve got the balls to be this bold when I’m older. There’s definitely not enough people like this! Scotland with its climate definitely needs more colour and this beautiful mature women is doing a great job in my opinion.
My only regret, I forgot to ask her name, how rude of me! If you know who she is, please let me know, I thought she was fantastic and posed for me beautifully so that I could share her look with all of you.
Woweeeeeee the Institute of Making are running an AMAZING workshop! sKINship
There’s still time to sign up!
Well, a first mock up at least!
Things have been busy at Codedchromics HQ recently and we may just have something very delightful to show you all very soon. In the meantime here’s a sneaky peek at a piece of costumeI’ve been making. More to follow imminently! (there is a deadline!!!! Arrghhhhhhh).
It’s not looking at it’s best in these photographs but I thought it would be good to show what I’ve been up to… we’re working on a little movie to show it in all of it’s glory and different states.
Watch this space and thanks for checking us out so far.
I hadn’t heard about this before but fist (whoops, mean first) saw this earlier this month mentioned on Syuzi Pakhchyan’s blog Wearable Technology (always an inspiration!)
Sophie de Oliveira Barata offers a ‘real’ option ‘surreal’ option and an ‘unreal’ option – you’ve just got to love that!
