I have written about different "killer fashions" on this blog before:
Recently I finally got my hands on a small book I have been wanting for quite some time:
Killer Fashion by Jennifer Wright. I went down to my local used book store (go green!) and found they had a copy! I have been eyeing this book as it blends together two of my favorite "odd" loves; Edward Gorey style art/poems and deadly fashion facts. This little 55 page book is a joy at every page turn.
It has also given me some more deadly fashion topic ideas to research. For instance, did you know in the 1920s some women would manicure their nails with radium to make their nails glow and sparkle in the low light of the night clubs?! Maybe I need to make an addendum to my nail polish history post.
In May while I was between jobs for a short stint of time I started following a prompt list to practice my drawing. It was a great choice and helped me rev my drawing which I had let fall to the way side while working as a Costume PA. Some days I would design a specific costume/clothing while others I'd just draw the prompt literally.
The prompt list I followed was a month long list, but I became busy and fell behind on it. I thought I'd create a shorter list for others to follow if they are like me and enjoy creating something around a prompt. So, without further ado, here is a short, noncommittal drawing prompt list for you to peruse.
If you want to follow the prompt you can start on the top and work down, the bottom and work up, or print it out and tack to a dart board. Enjoy the weird list of 14 words! I'll be starting this list once I finish my current jobs. Hop over to my Instagram to see my drawings for this list and others! #DesignthePrompt
