01:35 pm - Blackened Wings & Dreamlike Things
Last month I got an email about an opportunity/contest to "Design a show-stopping shawl for Stevie Nicks". I was immediately inspired & began work on it right away ~ here's the finished result!

Voting starts today! I'd love if you could go take a look, and vote if you feel moved to do so :) Many beautiful/sentimental/artistic pieces have been made or sketched for this, and I hope Stevie (& everyone!) has a wonderful time going through all of the pieces she's inspired.

***Thank you!!!***

I can definitely see you wearing a shawl like this at our (future-someday) spooky home by the sea ~ sitting outside having tea, wearing our giant festooned velvet witch hats.

*swoopy dance* (not to be confused with Snoopy Dance... unless Snoopy's in a magical forest, with the rest of his beagle-coven ;))

Oh good, I was hoping the shimmering quality could at least ~somewhat~ be captured in the photos! The pailettes have a satin/semi-matte finish, so they're really pretty in person, with a softer sparkle than you'd get from standard sequins...

Honestly, it's one of the first things I noticed, and it mesmerized me...

*facepalm* In my haste to share the post, I totally forgot to say how absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous the shawl is -- worthy of bedecking Stevie herself, or a fashion-conscious dark goddess of the night!

Thank you, thank you, thank you <3

I'd read about those self-portraits, hadn't seen those yet, so thanks for sharing them! I remember her saying something about telling people to show up bedecked in lipstick, lace, hats, etc... in the middle of the night for photos, and people just didn't seem to take her up on the offer ;) It's funny, because I'm normally the person doing that to my friends whenever the opportunity arises!

Hehe -- that is awesome!! Wish you were local, I'd love to play dress-up and take photos!

If you're ever in Texas, I have a guest room ;)

*dance dance dance*

(It's actually lovely here in the fall and for the first half of winter -- nice to get away from the cold, and it doesn't usually start getting wet or producing snow/ice until after January.)

The winters in the DFW area are generally quite mild, although Jan/Feb seem to have the highest chance of having snow or ice. Even when we get ice, it doesn't last -- but it's quite treacherous when it's on the roads, since they don't have a salting/sanding infrastructure here.

Annnd I just remembered that you've lived in Texas, never mind . . . I'm trying to do three things at once (one of which is "making calls for Kira's Social Security stuff," I'm on hold), and it's making me really ditzy today!!

But! Yes! You totally should, someday when it's feasible! Sp00ky sleepovers are amazing!!

:D

Even if you don't win, you've still made something beautiful. My hat's off to you.
