A couple of summers ago, coming home from class, I took the subway with a friend and I told her I was trying to start a blog... then I also told her how time consuming and addicting it had become, and that I was wondering if it was something worth doing... she laughed and asked me to let her know when I was done and give her the"link" so she could read it. Then she left and I kept thinking...why? why should I do this ?

Technology has taken us to a new level and we are now, able to "publish ourselves"! PUBLISH OURSELVES however we want to; if you want to be yourself, transparent and out in the open, or even if you want to pretend to be someone else... YOU CAN! Now you can blog and share your thoughts and experiences with people without having them "altered" by the editors, or "chosen" because of how cool or marketable they are...

This space is for us to share; zaidibirindilindilandia-my own little world, my ingenious- and your thoughts!

welcome, and thank you!

just wanted to share some progress with you...
Ive been knitting the "REAL" pieces... 
AND spending TTOOOO much time at the "dungeon" (aka: knit lab)

(there are no windows down there, and its like a VORTEX)

Ladies and gentelmen.. on this rainy rainy night in NYC... 
I introduce to you PROTO #2 x look 2 of my thesis project.

I finally finished draping it, the back part was difficult to figure out because I had too many ideas running through my head!
Putting it on pattern and re-sewing it felt good, now its like I am working with a blank canvas
- I can transform it!-
i also had fun taking pictures of it!

look1/edited proto

perfecting a prototype is a LONG process. next monday we have a meeting with our critic: Reiko Weiss from theory. and a model fitting. 
here is an update:

this is the top back of the proto the night before class/we had a "deadline" of 1 finished drape the next morning!

 and this is what happens in class:
professor tells me to slightly move my princess line, for a more "flattering" effect
on the picture at right, you get an idea of what the real fabric will look like!

sleevedetail. will have elastic

 this is super exciting. 
I changed the back a bit, and continued with the felted roots back thing... 
its"growing"on me!
