Kordi ja kordi valmistusin ette paruka ostuks, et oma drag persoona ehk Jessica Strong Drinks Only lõpuni lihvida, scrollisin aliexpressis ja etsys parukaid ja ei raatsinud seda kulutust ära teha. TMW nädalavahetusel aga käis minupool Evi kes oli juba ära otsustanud, et tahab Tallinnast osta odavat kunstjuust ja nii me jalutasime sisse Tradehoussi ja lihtsalt ostsime puusalt ära The Fever Wig parukad. Üldse ei promo antud firmat, kindlasti parem kui kõige odavamad karnevalipoe tooted, aga samas päris elus ei näe kindlasti nii cool välja kui fotodel. Korralikult peab parukat peas stiliseerima ning läigib ebanaturaalselt. Samas fotode jaoks väga ok toode ja eriti algaja jaoks, talub kuuma ja nii edasi. Pikkade juuste hinnaks oli vist 29€ ning teeb silmad ette mu vanadele 18€ parukatele küll.

Miks oranž? Plaan oli minna Natalie Portman Closer roosat rada, aga ma ei tea kas meie kass Lord Puss-Puss oma punase kasukaga või pikkade juuste ahnus ajasid oranži karva raja peale. Eks ta ole veits alternatiivsem ka kui meinstriimikas roosa.

Sellised me siis oleme, 30+ haldjad.

Times and times again I prepped myself to get a proper wig to polish my drag persona – Jessica Strong Drinks Only. I scrolled aliexpress and scrolled etsy, but was to keen on not spending money on that project in vain. What happened after is that Evi visited me for Tallinn Music Week and wanted to get a cheap wig for her art projects so before her boat back home we just bumped into Tradehouse and bought these crazy wigs. This is not an ad, and these are not the best wigs around, definitely too shiny to resemble real hair and need some serious styling, but for the price, it was ok decision plus they are way better than my old 18€ wigs, yet again I’m not sure I will use it other than for photoshoots. The brand is The Fever Wig and long style goes for 29€, it’s also heat resistant.

Why orange? I actually wanted to go for Natalie Portman Closer pink look, but something triggered me to go orange. Maybe my orange cat Lord Puss-Puss, maybe just the fact that this color looked much more alternative and ballzy in the store.

And here we are, 30+ elven maidens.

Vabandan ette oma armsate blogil-silma-peal-hoidjate ees, et olen nii vagur olnud, need kes on hoidnud tegemistel silmad peal Instagramis teavad, et ajad on olnud eraelu osas väga keerulised ja kuna tahaks siiski hoida uustuusa uue tuusa positiivsena, ei hakka siin pikemalt südant puiskama, mis seal salata, raske on nii palju puisata ka.

Igastahes. Siit tuleb veidi autoportreesid mis sündisid nõnda, et laenutasin EV100 puhul ETV+ kanali otse-intervjuuks Tanel Veenre ehteid (ETV+ “mind” on näha siin eelneval fotol kus meik ja juuksed tehtud andeka Krislin Lainelo poolt), et tutvustada laiemale publikumile sedasamust Taneli loomingut mida kõik kord aastas vastaval sündmusel näevad. Kui kord antud ehe aga näppu sattus, siis krohvisin kodus end merineitsiks ja tegin mõned autoportreed, patt ju lihtsalt tagasi viia ilma mängimata.

Ja ma usun päris põnev on näha ka sama nägu eelpool korraliku meigiga ja allpool sellise puhta lehena :)

I must apologize to all my blog followers for not explaining myself and my situation and why I’ve been so quiet. 2018 has officially sucked for the first part, and those who follow me on instagram are up to date with the situation, but I don’t want to complain here on the blog, new kewl should be about positivity.

As you can see on the upper photo, I was invited to do a live interview on the fashions od Estonia’s 100 independence day reception on ETV+ channel. For that matter I borrowed a bunch of Tanel Veenre jewellery as I wanted to show the broader audience the art that they see once a year during our presidential ball. To be honest they asked me to bring my own stuff but I just didn’t have it! Welly well as I had Tanel’s pieces with my at home I decided to take some self portraits. I created this mermaidy look and just went for it.

I think it’s also pretty fun to compare my feminine TV make up and my DIY zombie girl look :)

Nagu kauni-roosa-flamingo-kimono fotolt paistab, oleme Taneliga nelja aastaga juba väikestviisi visuaalselt meenutamas vana abielupaari, tegelikult oleme abielus hoopis Kunstiakadeemiaga ja neljandat aastat veame aksessuaarikursust mille raames disaini magistrandid nullist pakendini ühe Eesti disaintoote välja mõtlevad ja valmis toodavad. Eelduseks müüdavus, tiražeerimine, skandinaavialik stiil, sihtgrupi analüüs, logo ja pakend ja lõpuboss näituse läbiviimine. Tänavune näitus-müük asub Tali disainipoes Kotzebue 33 majas ja eriti tuusaks teeb KÄEATLAS näituse see, et iga tööd esitlevad töö loonud disaineri käte keraamiline replika, täiesti päris koopia nende endi kätest, sellise tuusa ekspositsiooni eest oli omakorda vastutav andekas Sigrid Maria Luitsalu, kes kõik need käed valmis tegi. Samuti täiega tuusa postri ja graafilised visuaalid tegi meie väljamaa tudeng Hansel Tai. Ja veel tahaks südamest tänada Tali perenaist Triinu Tiiselit, selle eest, et ta meid juba teist aastat kodustab ja oma disainpoodi noorte disainerite loomet müüki võtab. Paljude nimekate kohalike disainerite jaoks on oma turunduslik teekond alanud just Talist ja see on suur asi omaette.

Näitus on väljas 9 juunini, ärge istuge pepu otsas, näitusele näitusele (ja kõike saab osta ka).
As you can see from this pink-flamingo-infused-kimono photograph, I and Tanel are slowly starting to look like an old married couple, 4 years of teaching design MA students accessories course makes us married indeed but to the Estonian Academy of Arts. Our students build a Scandinavian, sellable, target group oriented product & package from idea to the reality and present it with a badass exhibition each spring. This year the sale-exhibit takes place in Tali design shop at Kotzebue 33 Tallinn & it’s called HAND ATLAS. The name has its roots within the hands that are holding the works at the exhibition, each work held by a ceramic replica of its designer’s actual hands. The hands are made by one of our amazingly talented students Sigrid Maria Luitsalu. I’d also like to give an applause to our student Hansel Tai for creating such awesome graphic design materials. And last but not least, the lady of the Tali house, Triinu Tiisel has been truly inspirational and welcoming for the second year in a row already. Taking in new designers, making space to sell Estonian design and trusting new talent, it’s a big deal for all of us & many known designers has started off in Tali.

The show is opened until June 9, raise your butts and enjoy the designs (buy some too).
