Machine Gun Bikini

Ah, memories... these pictures were obviously taken when it was still really hot here. It's actually pretty nice today, but it rained like hell all weekend long, so our little summer is definitely over. It was a good weekend for getting things done though, and a GREAT weekend for sports -- I can't believe it, but our San Francisco Giants are going to the World Series! I can't even yet dare to hope for the outcome of the series itself, but the fact that they made it is wonderful.

Also, sorry Yankees fans (if indeed there are any -- everyone I know just loves to hate them), but holy hell am I glad they got defeated! I'm not sure I could stomach seeing them in the World Series again. Take a few years off, okay guys? It's nice to see other teams make it to the finals once in awhile, and the Texas Rangers have more than waited their turn.

Much of the weekend was spent inside working on creative projects, so if you check the Etsy shop you'll see lots of new stuff there. I've got several new hats up, and Mark created a listing for an elaborate custom piece that he did for a customer's Halloween costume; it's the machine gun bikini harness from Lady Gaga's Alejandro video. Originally it was going to be a one-off sort of creation, but it turned out so well that Mark decided to list it in case anyone else is looking for one. Hey, in this town you never know -- it might be too late for Halloween, but in San Francisco I'll bet you could find dozens of events during the whole year where you could wear a little number like this.



 The harness is hot for sure, but this Dorothy Hamill 
hairdo is not Gaga's best look.

I HATE the yankees...and I'm not even from Boston!

This is a really cute outfit, I really like grey with girl pink!

And that bra gives whole meaning to the phrase "check out mah guns..." :p

Hot damn, Mark! That looks fantastic!

I can just see Mae West saying, "Is that a gun in your pocket or you just happy to see me?"

GO RANGERS!!!! And congrats to your Giants.

That harness is crazy.

I like seeing the Yankees lose.

Can't blame a person for staring (nervously) at your boobs in that thing! ;-)

GO GIANTS!

If Mark sells more than one of those I will die of sheer astonishment and joy.

I wonder if you wore that bikini to work would your co-workers make any comments?

Dawn said...

Oh hell yes! That machine gun looks fantastic!

Mark sent me a link to the bikini top - hah! Hope it becomes a bestseller.

I adore all the drapey layers you've been doing lately.

notSupermum: Come to think of it, that might just do the trick!

Wow, I love your top. It drapes so beautifully.

And thanks for all your lovely comments on my blog. Saying I look taller than I am is the best compliment you could give. I'm so excited that you pop by because you're the 2nd blogger I started following and such an inspiration.

Gadzooks, that is an amazing picture of you. The harness is really nifty too. :-)

And, dammit, GO GIANTS!

Holy moly, you've got guts, woman! I deeply admire your fearlessness and self-confidence, Audi. Can I be you when I grow up? :)
