FLESHED OUT · ILLUSTRATION TO GARMENT

For this years Mad Monster Party 2021, I took my “Fleshed Out” illustration to the next level and brought her TO LIFE! She was designed, sewn, hand-painted & hand-embroidered by myself (even the leather shoes were hand-painted to give a more fleshy vibe)! The foam hand prosthetics were sculpted off a mold of my hands by local artist Vaughn Doom. The dress itself took a little over a month for me to create the pattern, paint & put together! Whew, was it a lot of work, sleepless nights & pressure to get her done that quickly, but it paid off. I loved seeing my illustration… in the flesh… & the whole process was overall inspiring to me; Re-igniting my love of fashion design. I’ve definitely found something I’d like to explore more in the future!

Take a peek into a little bit of my process on my TIKTOK & also through my IG Highlight “Flesh”
