Breaking News: Art Gowns Bicker over Chicklets’ Picks

It all began with Hollywood gossip that a couple of Resa’s Art Gown’s would make it into the Hallow’een fashion show at the The Coop.

Resa had sent leftover Art Gowns fabrics to The Coop. So Iris began using Resa’s fabric’s for the upcoming Hallow’een celebrations

Mnemosyne  was put in charge of keeping the Art Gowns entertained.

After all, she is the mother of The Nine Muses, and they are at the zenith of new age entertainment.

You may already know, but Lady Anne , (Holly) who is assisting, will be providing Motorcycle rides to The Coop participants on the big day.

Of course every Art Gown wants to be selected for this honour, but things have gotten carried away.

Empress D’amore thinks this, Blue Venus thinks that.

Still, the Art Gowns continue to argue over who will be picked.

For crying out loud, they are so spoiled and vain that each believes she is the most gorgeous.

Lady Anne

Did you ever toss and turn through the dark of night  trying to figure how to make a gown out of an old black leather coat and studded leather pants?

If your answer is “yes”, I feel your stress!

Lady Anne is inspired by Norman who donated the coat & pants to my “Art Gowns” supplies stash.

Norman is a musician & composer. He works in film & television, and is an amazing guitar player.

Black leather and studs made me think “Hard Rock” and “Metal”.

Anne #6 However, this is Anne #7a gown, so I thought Rock Ballads” and bought 9 meters of very inexpensive cotton gauze and Chantilly lace.

I removed the coat’s sleeves, and each sleeve became half of the bodice.

The pant legs became the skirt’s front panels. I cut scallops around the raw edges, and used glue to attach the fabric.

I surgically removed  the lower half of the coat’s fronts and the entire back in one piece.

Ane #15This Anne #9became the back of the gown. I split this up the center to add a flouncing bustle with  skirt of gauze.

I over-layered the skirt of gauze with a triangle of lace.

I needed something to pull Lady Jane together so I pulled a grommet laden S&M harness from my pile of leftover production stock, and chopped that up.

Anne #10

Lady Anne is, Medieval, Elizabethan and Renaissance all rolled into today.

Her name, Lady Anne, came to me as I was shooting her.

Soon after I was humming Lady Jane, an old Rolling Stones tune. In the song, Lady Anne is being left for Lady Jane. There is only one color to describe that feeling …. blue.

I must take my leave, for promised I am
This play is run my love, your time has come my love

Norman, Lady Anne is like the music you make, a romance of many eras, places and feelings. Thank you for the inspiration!
