A Monster Bad Romance Vid

I wonder if Lady gaga watches much anime or if this is a coincidence.  The cross in the monster as part of the title font and the big anime eyes in the  music video. They were so freaky.  I thought they came out in the beginning like they’re vampires or creatures born of the abyss. 

Also in the vid there’s the attack of the Alexander Mcqueen monster.  She had premiered Bad Romance at the Alexander Mcqueen show so I guess that’s understandable.  And that polar bear dress was fierce.  There’s also a bit of East European feel to it to go along with that Russian sound that she uses in the song.  The only thing I thought was really scary was that cat.  I don’t know why but it freaked me out.

 And the end is a surprise so if you haven’t seen it I won’t spoil it where strangely she looks like Amy Winehouse. I love the vid.  What do you think?

Campbell’s AdDRESS your Heart

November 7, 2009 at 8:59 pm (art, fashion) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Here are some dresses I had designed while coming up with one to enter the Campbell’s adDress your Heart contest which donates money earned from votes on the winning dress to the American Heart Association to help educate women about heart disease so please vote when you can.  I’m not posting the one I entered until later, but while I was designing these dresses I seriously felt like I was competing against Andy Warhol (and if that was the case I diffently didn’t win) but he’s dead so you wouldn’t think I would be competing with him.  But in 1967 his design was printed on a paper dress and that still inspires the dresses campbell has liked in recent years.

Here are some I ditched before coloring.  All the dresses had to be mostly red so I just colored them another color, because I thought the dresses were too cute to totally ditch.

I hope you like the dress designs.  I didn’t design the shoes, just changed colors and all that.  I used Alexander McQueen, Dior and some other fancy shoes.
