THIS IS THE BIG REVEAL!!!
Kustom Kulture Girl is the project I've been beavering away at for the past couple of months.
Kustom Kulture Girl is all about vintage style stuff.
We're starting off with a range of limited-edition hair flowers and combs, all made by moi, and selected pieces of vintage furniture which have been completely reworked and are therefore totally unique.
I've started a separate Facebook page, so please go and 'like' it, I'll feel more popular if you do.
Here's a sample of our hair flower range.
I haven't made more than 3 of any one style, to me there's nothing worse than seeing yourself walking around!
Below is a couple of pics from our stall at Greazefest, a 3-day rockabilly weekender held this past weekend here in Brisbane.
Now don't be thinking Kustom Kulture Girl is some sort of replacement or displacement of our vintage...it's NOT!!!
It's a little sideline to complement our vintage wares. No matter which era of vintage you prefer or wear, a hair flower (or 10) will always work with your outfit.
This is the first-ever piece of Kustom Kulture Girl furniture. A 1930s silky oak dresser with leopard-print velvet skirt and matching boudoir stool.
For the KKG furniture I'm only using vintage furniture that can't be restored to the original. I come across so much stuff that's just a little too imperfect for the Tamborine shop.
For example, the 50s silky oak phone table below-it had a couple of water marks, but looking at it now you'd never know.
I've left the interior as-found, for one thing it had been heavily oiled, plus this way you can still see the lovely timber grain.
Next up I'll be doing a couple of bedside tables and an ironing board...I can feel some floral wallpaper, black gloss paint and cheetah print coming on!!! (But maybe not all on the same piece, 'kay?)
THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Can you get a gold medal for watching more Olympics than anyone else??? Can ya????
Linking up with Lakotas Ta-Dah Tuesday.
