I spent a good 20 minutes trying to source this picture from pinterest so I could 1) figure out who was awesome enough to have made this and 2) if it was actually made of Harry Potter pages like all the internet believes.
This dress made of book pages was created by Lori of Katie’s Rose Cottage Designs and the photo taken at the Dallas Home Show in 2011. It is probably not Harry Potter, but whatever its still fucking spectacular regardless of what books she used.
Eiko Ishioka, incredible costume designer (1938-2012)
In particular, she designed costumes of Dracula (Coppola), the Cell, Immortals,….
More precisions about her work on wikipedia
I’ve only seen Dracula, the Cell, and the Fall, and she’s just amazing.
My mother thinks jeans and a T-shirt with a hoodie is inappropriate for a female.
Today she told me she doesn’t like what I’m wearing. Pretty much my normal clothing. She thinks it’s not right to wear this.
Please reblog and comment so I can show her that there is nothing wrong with me.
I guess she’s never been on a college campus.
I wore something similar to this just about everyday throughout middle school, high school and college. I still dress like that on the weekends (stupid business attire). My parents never had a problem with it. Nor did anyone else I knew.
Whether you want to wear jeans and a hoodie everyday or a man’s suit and tie or be the frilliest, ruffliest Lolita* ever, that should be your own choice and no one else’s.
*Lolita fashion is pretty much the most feminine-presenting fashion style that I’ve ever seen and those lovely ladies (and dudes too) get a lot shit for that. Which just goes to show how narrow and contradictory the gender fashion police are when it comes to female-identifying bodies.
Christie, I saw this androgynous lady and thought of you.
Now she just looks fucking cool as hell.
Seriously, how awesome are those dresses. And I just love the contrast of the 40 years between them. The first two are from the 1870s and the last two are from 1910.
My favorite is the Green Afternoon Dress from the House of Worth, 1875. Just look at that back.
