So, I found these paintings from my favorite source Planet Fabulon and ...I wasn't immediately inspired but I knew they made me laugh in that nervous "should I be laughing at this" kinda way, and HAD to bring them into Polyvore. The first one went okay, but I struggled a lot. (Peacocks are predictable, and tough to make surprising). The second one was better, but I still felt like something was missing. Third time...
is a charm.
First off, I looked up "feather dress". I wanted a dress and I wanted feathers. Simple as that. I found this Oscar de la Renta dress with a small feather trim around the bottom and...I wasn't sure about the black and white until I looked at the bird again...yes, black and white would definitely do. My next step was to look up "chicken". I found the chicken mask and the bucket of KFC...I wasn't sure I'd use the KFC but I pulled it into the set just in case I decided to. My next step was legs. The Queen Rooster had yellow arms so I said "I can do that!" and grabbed some yellow socks from my friends at SockDreams.com. The shoes were a bit tricky because I wanted something that looked like chicken claws...not an easy thing to find in a shoe. But pointy toes would work and I'm not one who normally uses pointy toe shoes, so the choice felt surprising to me. I grabbed a red bag because I still didn't have any red in my set...and then pulled in a couple of feather accessories to top it off. And as you can see, I had room to keep the bucket of KFC.
