more junk to funk

the dude here is some random guy who decided to dress up. pretty fancy. the gal he is chatting with was in the show. her dress was made of all green colored pages from "Portland Monthly" magazine. i saw a lot of double stick tape on those gals .
this is a paper and plastic evening gown. the pages are spray painted black to give a textured look. the bodice is a piece of old fabric. not tooooo shabby. very "Trashion"

this gal got away with second place and the peoples choice award. her outfit is made out of things you would find in a couch. the skirt is old muslin, the jacket is upholstery fabric, the the button closure area in front is finished with those sliding door lock thingys. you can't really see it, but it was awesome. also for the last cool thing, the standup collar is human hair. she also had a ton of pheasant feathers on top of her head.

more junk to funk baby!!

bows and ribbon can be trash, but this diva re-used!!!! a full bow skirt and a ribbon bodice. she is also holding her trophy for participating in the nights events. cool stiletto, and gold barbie trophy, no?
check this out!! high waisted skirt made with all zippers. the bustle on the bottom was all bubble wrap, and the top is all plastic. to die for eh??? she also go third place.

one of the sponsors was SCION vehicles. they made one of their hybrid cars into a photo booth. marcy and i took a seat in the back of the car, and away we went. she looks fantastic, while i look a little on the "man ish" side. the second pic is of me giving my best "Zoolander."
more to come

the best, most awesome recycled "trashion" show was yesterday, and i must say, some amazing creations, like this one. blue plastic bag poof skirt with woven shrug made out of grocery bags. so adorable.
emcee sam adams in a bubble wrap tuxedo coat and brown plastic grocery bag leaf like head dress. tara on the left is wearing the ever so stylish "floppy disk flapper dress." out-effin-rageous.

each letter over the stage was made with recycled products. the "F" is egg cartons, the "N" is plastic easter egg cups, and we couldn't figure out what the "U" was.

decided to test my camera on us. not bad.
more pics to come. however, since my silly camera doesn't take good pictures of people actually "in motion"(bogus, i know), they will be good none the less.

ohhhh chocolate

found a new, local chocolate place. made my way out to carlton, mcminnville area today for fun, and stumbled on it. there are two local stores in the newberg/mcminnville area, but if you don't want the drive, try here. i just love the name too. Honest Chocolates!!! i've had a few, namely the pinot inspired ones. and since it is my job to test and support local talent..... please take my word, they are heaven, and not too sweet either.
