For those of you who don’t know, in school I specialized in costume design (from my fashion design studies) because I sincerely love extreme creativity, drama, beauty and personas. I have always adored Cirque du Soleil, theatre, and makeup for that very reason – the transformations, the excitement of becoming a different person (my Gemini side totally coming out 😉 My life is a costume catwalk – enjoy some of the moments captured on film 😉
My beautiful friend Zara made this awesome “catsuit/assless chap” creation draft… here she caught a pic of the fitting… I was TERRIFIED to come out of the dressing room for this one btw… TERRIFIED!

I was a geisha for Halloween one year…

Chillin’ with psycho’s for Halloween in the Old Port of Montreal

My african Mu Mu experience from my travels to South Africa

One of my best lady friends and I go all out when we go out… she is actually blonde and wearing a black wig here!!! This was for a cabaret styled party btw 😉 we aren’t just freaks for nothing…

School projects! The following pics are my colleagues different interpretations for a dance themed costume for theatre…

Here’s mine (above)!

How gorgeous is this one? I felt like princess lea from Star Wars… where are my cinnamon roll hair buns yo?!?!

This was a friends “Barbie Punk/glam/80’s” creation for Montreals Sensation Mode festival…

Halloween at school (very embarassing dressing like this all day… DOWNTOWN) ughhhh…

My favorite creation! This is my own interpretation of Dilton (the nerd) from the Archie comics!!! And yes, that is ME in the costume… don’t I make quite the convincing boy?!? ;P

I even made the shoes and the wig/glasses…

I am a guitar chick…

Beautiful garden flower Barbie done by my good friend Leah Bizier (she now works for Cirque du Soleil – can you figure why? She’s AMAZING)… look for her… she will be VERY big VERY soon 😉 Very talented lady!

The costume to the right is my burlesque interpretation of a bodysuit for performing ballerinas of the Montreal Fashion Festival! My proudest moment watching these two dance.

right before being interviewed for the news to promote the finishing classes fashion show (wearing a students coat creation)… I was also featured on Musique Plus (Montreal’s version of MTV)

More wild creations from the classroom 😉 This one is my buddy Meli’s creation – she is getting married soon! Congrats girlie!!!

And last but not least, backstage at the fashion show! These are the gorgeous Zara’s creations… Looooooove them!

long hair I miss you… grow… GROW dammit!!!

Live your life in full color…

Life is not about finding yourself,
Life is about creating yourself!

Have a gorgeous weekend YO!!!
