This was then.
I realize I am not living in a Dickensian era. I take a detour by the perfume counter. I am not even aware of my own musk.
Here - displayed hanging on a rusted gardening tool (some sort of 5 pronged raking device). The tool has been painted with various cheap cosmetics, the tips with the bright red lipstick that was also used along the border of the damask/ pelt shaped bronze, floral embossed naughahyde. The "veil" (which now becomes net, drape, specimen, specter) has been powdered and has clear lucite cut-crystal shaped bobbles attached at its ends. The sides are held back with tissues and antique flower pin-backs. At top: a "crest" made with A rusty garden trowel and a pair of pink stilhettos. Architectural flourishes made with styro-foam, tissue paper and liquid foundation.
