It’s still winter in many parts of the world (or some weeks it is, and some weeks it isn’t – hello, global warming!). Lasso came about when Gaspard Tiné-Berès went off to school and needed slippers to tolerate the cold stone floors. Taking a piece of spare felt and a sneaker lace, the first pair of Lasso slippers were born.

After 164 prototypes, the design was perfected and Tiné-Berès brought Ruben Valensi on board to help get the company rolling. Now made in Paris with the help of a company that provides work for people with special needs.

Lasso slippers are made from a single piece of wool felt, a leather sole, and cotton lace in five different colors. The slippers come flat-packed and easily take shape when you lace the edges together.

They are currently looking for funding on Kickstarter, so help them out with some cash while helping your feet get some warmth.

DIY: Sequin Bracelet ..by Erica all the way from “Honestly …WTF”

Leave a comment

After purchasing an abundant (and unnecessary) amount of sequins for last week’s tutorial, I mulled over ways to repurpose them into another project. Inspired by those beautiful African necklaces made from recycled vinyl, it was obvious that a bracelet DIY was in order. Simple and fast . . . I dare you not to make just one!

You’ll need:

 

Cut 12 inches of elastic cord and tie a double knot at the end.

There’s a quick and easy shortcut for adding sequins rather than threading them on one at a time. Pull a bunch of sequins off the strand. Keep the sequins in place between the pads of the index finger and thumb. Thread the elastic cord through the sequins.

Continue stringing on sequins, in any pattern, using the same method.

Wrap the strung sequins around the wrist to check for size – remember to account for the bracelet stretching. Knot the elastic cord into a double knot and pull tightly to tighten. Trim the ends.

Cut the embroidery floss into a few 2 inch pieces. Fold them in half over the knot. Take another 2 inch strand and tie the floss together into a double knot at the top.

Trim the ends. Use a needle to comb through and unravel the floss. Trim the tassel.

And that’s it! *Note: I prefer using flat sequins versus faceted sequins for this particular tutorial.

Stack, stack away . . .

Ladies all the way!

Amazing Artwork Painted On Nude Models

Realistic landscapes, detailed paintings of animals, and emotionally charged abstract artwork? *snore* Nekkid ladies? Where? Under the the paint? Oh snap! Why didn’t you say so in the first place? Artist Craig Tracy paints beautiful artwork on top of human canvases (aka nude models) creating breathtaking living artwork. At first glance it can be difficult to spot the person in the painting, but upon careful inspection their form becomes apparent. Tracy says that most paintings usually take about a full day to complete and that none of his work is ‘shopped.

The Trick Art Museum Is Like Photoshop Without A Computer

Another day another crazy Photoshopped gallery of images amirite? IAMWRONG! None of the images you see here have been doctored. These are all things that really happened in real life. Well, sorta. The Trick Art Museum in South Korea contains amazing interactive optical illusions. Visitors are encouraged to become part of each scene and pose for wild photos… unlike at the Louvre where they frown upon it when you try to get a photo of yourself standing behind the Nike of Samothrace making it look like your arms and head are part of the statue. Jeez, why is everyone screaming at me in French? I swear to GOD she was already broken when I got here!

DIY: Going into summer

Product Name: Sneaker Customization kit

its been so long i wrote an article,  but just few minutes ago, i was chatting with a bestie, Debbie. and she inspired me to write one! 😀

Background research: As summer rapidly approaches, I’m beginning to notice that I need some new sneakers. But I’m starting to realize: either the shoes I like are too expensive or the ones that are affordable, I’m not so crazy about the way they look. Then it dawned on me, what if I were able to create a sneaker that perfectly matched my style & clothes that were already in my closet as opposed of buying a shoe, then having to go buy more things to go with it.

Hypothesis: With the sneaker customization kit, I can create my own personal design to whatever sneaker I choose.

The Experiment: I took a pair of sneakers that I barely wore, removed the laces, grabbed a couple of “sneaker preparation wipes,” cleaned off the sneakers, & let my imagination do the rest.

Being that I am an artist, I analyzed the whole ordeal way too much, beforehand. Meaning, I thought it would be far more difficult than it turned out to be. It was one of the simplest yet fastest things I could have imagined. I was very impressed with the shine & gloss quality of the paint (included in the kit). I was also extremely pleased when at the last moment I decided to change one the colors & saw how easily the wipes erased my previous decision.

Results: I ended up having a brand new pair of sneakers that took me less than and hour, that I custom made to coincide with whatever I decide to wear in my closet & I didn’t even have to leave the house!

Conclusion: I am very impressed with this item, now my only problem is I don’t know which shoes in my closet I’m going to paint next!

Need some new kicks? The sneaker customization kit is only $45– more affordable than any designer brand!
