216: My Girl’s Project Runway!
Hey there…I know it’s been awhile since I posted..I have been working on a lot of deadlines and was already Twittering more than I had time for…let alone getting in here to Blogland…but tonite I wanted to share with you my daughter’s fashion show that I got to go to today (uh…that seems like too many to’s…but whatever)….and I was LATE!! I was so upset with myself and the truck in front of me….I got to see the tail end of the show, but I didn’t get to see this great scene take place….Linda was there taking pictures…so I got to see this…but I have to tell you this….Mimi and the one boy in class had the best designs…the other “creations” didn’t look unique or even “designed” so I think I missed the best part…. but I thought you all would love to see my creative daughter’s inspiration, and I invited her back to be a guest blogger here again at the Blue Nickel….so without further adieu….the fabulous Mimi Hansen brings you her Spring 2010 creation……
Hi guys! it’s been awhile! how are you all doing? good? anyhoo… these are my designs….(i was embarrassed cuz i had to fill out this form and since my hand writing was so bad Alex, the announcer person, messed up .. oh well…what’s done is done) well i guess i should start from the top. My top is made with crepe fabric, with purple lining. with my new invention PEEK-A-BOO SLEEVES!! well, i think they’re new…dunno. TELL ME IF THEY’RE NOT!! well, next comes the skirt, it’s made with lightweight cotton and cute deer and poodle fabric that my dad bought for himself but, i stole it ^^ (not really….) then i just wore black tights under it with my leg warmers i made…. if you look closely you can see the squirrels! then my shoes are from rocket dog, they have polka-dots and cherries on the tips ^^ super cute right? one of the cherries fell off….that made me sad but, i think i can fix it! yeah! it was really fun! my friend tabitha was really scared, and i told her i wasn’t but, when i got on stage i was all like “oh snap…. I AM scared……snap…what’ll i do? my heart is racing!” but, i think i did well. just so you know at my school i’m probably the most……eccentric one there….. like….. i have this kitty hat and i have a puppy eared hair band….. and lots of other things ^^ i told myself (when i dressed like everyone else) “i’m going to be cool this year! dye my hair! be a trend setter! gonna be a total remix of my old self!” and that ‘s what i did! i think my dad posted one of my outfits before right? it was a pink/purple tutu with a purple top leggings, and my kitty hat and polka-dot socks ^^ i where that one all the time ^^ i like anime alot so i cosplay alot! (cosplay=costume play) my dad feels bad about missing the first part but, i don’t hold him accountable! i mean he was there in the end right?so why does it matter? at least he tried! this is Amelia Hansen of Shattered Glass ( my “company”) signing off! i hope you enjoyed this little blog thingy! hope to see you next time ^^ Byebye!
Okay so that’s my girl….(actually I did go in there and do some cleanup of spelling and puncuation….it’s the English major in me…I can’t help myself….) She has big dreams, and I am very proud of her for becoming her own person…she is a beautiful girl….
Tomorrow I may have some snippets from one of the projects that had me busy these last two weeks…later my friends…
Congratulations to you (Mimi) my daughter came over to look over my shoulder at the computer and said she loves the outfit! Her name is Gwen and she says it is nice to know there are other kids who dress uniquely, she cosplays too and is often found wearing something from one of her favorite mangas or video games. Although she is almost completely opposed to the color pink she says you rock in the color! Can’t wait to see more and hopefully my mom will get cracking on my outfits I have requested so you can see some of the cool things I designed too!
Mimi, you are darling!! Good for you to express your creativity and style – it appears you are truly coming into your own and that is to be admired!! I applaud you for the remix and keeping your life and self-expression fresh and unique ~
My kids are following their own road as well. For my son its his hair and piercings and for my daughter its clothing, specially hats. She loves to mix up lots of colours together.
Love the outfit. What fun to have the dark and then the burst of colour. The tail is a neat feature, makes the outfit even more special. Thanks for sharing it with us.
You are such a beautiful and talented young lady. I wish I had been a bit braver (like you) in high school sewing class. I still struggle with trying to “sew outside the lines” I love the “tails thing” on your top, remindes me of clothing from wicked or series of unfortunate events. Is there a name for that style? Classy and funky. Very cool. Thanks for sharing
Thanks for the great guest post! Mimi, your designs rock- you remind me of being your age, and having a unique personal style including vintage, remixed and restyled clothes and lots of hair style and color changes. It’s fun! Keep shining!
Wonderful outfit Mimi, you always wear the cutest things.
Your parents genes are strong in you =o)
I’m crazy about MIMI
