Hey, all!!! I hope you are healthy and well! 💜
This past week, given the shelter-in-place policy enforced in my city due to COVID-19, I’ve had an abundance of time at home to create some new artwork, read, watch movies, and tinker around with the clothing in my closet. I created a new bow brooch by using some extra fabric ribbon I had on hand, and attached it to a vintage brooch I own. A nice addition to my beige lace top!
Believe it or not, the black dress is an old Xhilaration dress from Target I’ve had for years. Now it looks totally different!
I really love how old-fashion this dress looks with the modifications I made to it! It proves that all it takes is some accessorizing to totally change the look.
I’ve always loved psychedelic art, so I finally created one of my own. 😃 I titled it: Magical Mystery Dreams (the title was inspired by Magical Mystery Tour (1967) by the Beatles, which is my favorite album of theirs and it paired well while drawing this). 💜
Last but certainly not least!!! A few weeks ago, I was happy to get my copy of Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978). You can hardly find a copy of it to buy online, so it’s truly a miracle I even own it!
Backstory: This was a made-for-television film that aired around Halloween of 1978. Anything I read about it said it was “super cheesy” and “really out-there”, which made me even more ecstatic to watch it and run to it with open arms. Naturally, I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!!!!
It takes place at Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA (around 3 hours away from where I live – I’ve driven through the area countless times going to L.A.). The acting is adorable and there are a lot of scenes with Kiss playing their songs live in concert. How could I not love it?!
I also love it because, since it was transferred from an original VHS recording to DVD, it’s like watching it through a dream lens. It gives the film a high saturation color-wise and an imperfect quality, which I actually prefer. Visually, it’s like remembering parts of a dream you had, is how I’d best describe it.
I hope you all stay healthy, positive and find creative ways to spend your time as much of the world is on lockdown, it seems. ❤️ Let me know in the comments if you’ve been doing anything interesting!
See you next time!! 🌼
