  • LPDstudios - Extra Endeavors -High School Musical - Legally Blonde

    Re-posting some fun moments from this year!

    "Carlos" and Me

    This year I had a rare opportunity to be the costumer for this years high school musical "Legally Blonde".  The kids were amazing, hardworking and very receptive to my ideas.  I had a ton of fun playing into the old tropes and stereotypes of the characters, which where almost 12 years old.  And, figuring out how to make a "Playboy Bunny" costume appropriate for a high school actress.  I am sure we got some backlash along the way, but then isn't that what art has always done.

  • LPDstudios - Extra Endeavors - Girl Scout Badge

    Recently, I was invited by my friend Payton to help her Girl Scout Troop earn their jewelry badge.  I am not your typical jewelry artist and decided to teach them the art of stamping leather.  These girls where very serious.  After discussing what types of jewelry there are and the many different materials it's made of.  We got to work.  First teaching them the basic skills of working in leather, then letting them go, unrestrained, to create their amazing piece of jewelry.  Take a look for yourself what these young ladies accomplished.
