At my desk

This weekend was one of my favorite San Francisco events, the classic Bay to Breakers. I have been very interested in making costumes for years and this is a great event for unleashing a bit of the kookiness. This year a friend and I went as 1950's style bathing beauties and this is one of the floral bathing caps we constructed the night before. The flowers were cut out of felt with seed bead or pom-pom centers. The cap base is just some leftover jersey. They were surprisingly comfortable to wear in the unseasonably hot weather yesterday and as I've always said, it's the accessories that really sell it. Now it's time to start dreaming up what to make for Halloween....
