Tomorrow my bathroom turns into a color lab… Don’t fret, I will be filming this. I just hope the only chemical reactions that go on are in my brain.
I’m working on a new project! I’ll be making costumes for this crazy, awesome, new band’s first music video! They’re called MANIAC, check them out, they’re pretty rad if I do say so myself. So, join in and follow along with my “creative process”. The band will be as well since they’re in California/Australia and I’m here in the BK. I thought it would be way more exciting to blog my way through all of the steps. Plus it should be a cool way to look back at everything when we’re all finished. Stay tuned….
