    This woman has put a lot of effort into being original, eccentric, unique. Art Institute students has a special ability to translate their inner world into something for all to see. Lovely.

      The art scene can be a great source of inspiration for fashion.
      Artists, students, gallerists, etc. their eccentric and original looks are a sight fo sore eyes!

          I bought a small piece she’d made at SAIC’s student art sale. That was my first time meeting her in person. I was impressed by the skill that went into her metal work as well as how humble and frank she was when discussing what it took to make each piece.

          She isn’t even wearing foundation. No make up, except the arty design by her eye. Nothing fake here.

        She looks a hundred times cooler and more authentic then the little clowns in Tokyo who have too much time on their hands. Besides, she is doing something useful, and I have never seen that done by a Tokyololli. You can just tell that this is simple for her. I don’t see how anyone could hate on this adorable human. She is perfect, and perfectly at ease.

        This is her ‘every day’ look…..you’d be amazed at what you think you call ‘dressed up’. She walks to her own calling and is what she is….fabulous!

    I have an IG picture of this girl. I live in San Francisco and I was fascinated by her head gear which she apparently makes herself out of chainmail. Fabulous!

    I went to one of her fashion shows. She designs chain maille and i’m sure she designed that headpiece she is wearing. (At least i’m pretty sure this is the sam woman)

    That is me!
    if you guys like the stuff I am wearing/ my makeup, you should look at my website!
    also the soldiers/cowboy that are on my jacket are sewn on, not a brooch, there used to be a dinosaur too.
    The thing on my eye is just makeup that I change everyday.

    She does costume work, too, for Chicago storefront theatres. I met her doing a circus aerials class :)

    Brilliant look – unique, distinctive and different. It says Bohemian and arty, oozing confidence but not in a false way.

    So glad the eye work is makeup and not ink! I am not a big lover of tattoos but each to their own.

    She is definitely zagging . . .

    This site never fails to surprise me. Everyday I’m expecting something different, exciting and I’m never disappointed, either I like an outfit or not, it doesn’t matter. It’s about stepping into people’s creativity and getting ideas. Great job !

    Super-cool! Love the play of detail against simplicity–the eye makeup against an otherwise minimally-done face, the lapel of the jacket against the plain black. And that chain-mail piece is just excellent. The video on the website is fascinating too–thanks for the link. You’re a gifted artist, Sky! :)

    interesting, the hat is also really cool. this sort of overly-made up, carefully placed style isn’t really my favorite, nothing against her though, she seems dedicated

    It’s interesting the make-up: maybe it’s something symbolical…
