PiNKiTUDE is a pink attitude that says you are bold and take chances
PiNKiTUDE is caring about body and spirit
PiNKiTUDE is style that stands out in a sea of black and grey
PiNKiTUDE is whimsical, sexy, intelligent, and altogether fun!


Today, Chris (~kellin), Becky (~MedeaHiasobi) and I got out to do a photo shoot of the outfit that is my entry into the PiNKiTUDE contest.


Yes, the outfit was made just for this contest :D

The outfit consists of a corset made out of a pink and black hounds tooth woven fabric, with a coutil base, lined in pink cotton. It has both flat white steel bones and spiral steel bones, and is trimmed along the top with black pleated sheer.

The skirt was a fun experience - it's a pencil skirt, so really simple, with a stylized bustle on the back. The bustle is my favorite part, and you can see it better here [link] - I quite literally grabbed a hunk of fabric, and started pinning, pleating and then pressing, to get the unique shape of a bustle created through origami.

As far as accessories go, the sunglasses are Becky's, the fishnets and boots were purchased (hooray clearance shoes!!) and the scarf was one that I dyed for myself last year, and just happened to match!


Outside of the Milwaukee Art Museum, where poor ~MedeaHiasobi froze doing this photoshoot. I'm so happy that we were able to get some great shots, though, and in good, sunny weather (albeit cold) because everything just pops! This is in a tie for my fav picture, with [link]

A superhero look to this one is what I love, like she's ready to kick some butt if anyone is causing any troubles in her neighborhood!

Very minimal work done in Photoshop, mostly to add the border and get the colors right (after much learning how the various adjustment tools I never use work!) Added the paw print from the pack, too, because it just seemed to fit really well there on the fence.
