Here, I've combined what used to be two seperate pieces, entitled "Always a Bridesmaid" and "Winterloper". The first is made from a tangled bedspring meticulously covered in a deconstructed pink satin dress, embellished with lace trim, ruffles and netting. The latter is an upholstered form based on a fruit, an egg, or and ornament. Its quandrants part to reveal and interior lined with irridescent green sequins (this was my prom dress) and a white nylon stocking membrane network with stuffed satin seeds thoughout. Emerging for the pod's center is a rhinestone-studded (yes, phallic.but .no, not just dumbly phallic...also a bit wormy) parasite.
Shown together (with more formalwear included- my aunt's hoop skirt form, my mother's homecoming dress) dubbed "Runner-up":
|There's some black beetles crawling around on there..made from, again, old undergarments. They didn't make sense to me anymore (visually) with the worms, so I seem to be trying to locate a new home for them.|
