Inspired by a talk by Patricia Black ... (1. How did I remember that name??? and 2. Here is her website!!) - I took a piece of leather - not lovely soft handbag type leather but affordable CRAFT type leather -hmm OK - then I wet it and then moulded it around my torso and tied it tight with bandages - the idea being that it would mould to my shape as it dried. And I do actually have photos of that process somewhere ...... When it dried (many hours later) it was snipped to reveal a corsetty type of shape and I put holes up the back and tied it with leather thonging. The corset was also tanned.
The rest of the ensemble is dyed cheesecloth made into extreme harem pants (!!!!) with a matching wrap. Plus note the little leather anklets and wristlets.
Photographed in my backyard - my Dad was a plumber so we had an interesting back yard of just about everything .... not sure what the look was that I was actually after - experimental? viking? hippie? Probably a combination! Enjoy laughing
