Winter Gear is now RAD Gear.

Winter Gear, now RAD Gear.

-44°c on my walk to school this morning.

Ice fog always hovers over Dawson City once it hits 40 below…

A 13 minute walk to get to school feels like WAY longer if you aren’t dressed properly. Thanks to my fantastic hand-painted Gauntlets, the day is saved!

I made these during my dog-sitting stay in a teeny cabin at the beginning of the year.
They make me feel so awesome, they give my black parka/snowpants/hair/life a fluorescent POP.

PLUS          I won’t lose them at the Pit.

I mentioned having wolf scraps in my last post…

Here are some goals for making my dark, gloomy winter gear more creepy-cool and less ghastly and gruesome.

  • Sew fur trim on Parka hood
  •  Make [wolf]muffs
  • Patch my toque with monsters [salvaged from a thrift-shop toddler onesie]
  • Lace my boots with Ribbon

 

Interested in knowing how to do this stuff?
Have you modified clothing before?

Gallery Exhibition 2014

Arisetotrash-Samm_UnderD0G

My piece  Under D0G for the art exhibition “String-Theory” in Whitehorse, Yukon.
All 15 students at SOVA were given ink, watercolor, wax, fur and string as a guideline.

This is what I came up with.

What do you think?

It was pretty hard to make it all come together, but the wolf fur scraps I bought in December ended up being the perfect thing!

I feel bad for the wolf, but at least it’s spirit and the fur itself won’t be left un-loved.  :]

Keep an eye out for my next post, I’ll show you what I’ve done to Samm-ify my winter gear & maybe inspire you to jazz up those black jackets too.
