Today's #fashioncosplay is #RubyBailey (1912-2003). I featured her in my 8 June post. She was a #Blackfashion designer whose work was largely unknown during her lifetime. She designed for her sister & herself, winning many costume contests in Harlem.
I had to feature Ruby Bailey again because a) she was amazing & b) because of my #1950s#VirginIslands dress, which evokes her more spectacular one.
That's my goal with this project: to evoke the original, not replicate it. It's about the feel of a pic, not pin-point accuracy.
Aside from anything else, replication is impossible. Especially of midcentury models. I'm way older, I was born without a giraffe neck, & I own zero corsetry. Not even Spanx, let alone horse hair padding.
I set myself the limit of only using clothes I own. (As well as @scott_westerfeld's & the occasional bed sheet. *cough* One must improvise.)
Except for hats. Many are borrowed from @eastvillagehats. Thank you, Julia! C'mon, the hats have to be as accurate as possible! I'm not a total barbarian.
I've had a few readers ask why I wear a mask in only some pics. Yes, that's on purpose.
#Masks are for non-model pics, which are mostly my fave designers. That's because in a #pandemic they would be responsible. Also it's fun deciding which mask. Definitely patterned for Miss Bailey. She was a maximalist.
(I won't be cosplaying Chanel. You know that Nazi spy would be all, No mask pour moi. I am above the law.)
The fashion shots are maskless because the makeup is key. I work hard to be as accurate as I can. (Then we take the pic & the colours are wrong. Le sigh. Hey, I tried.)
This time next Sunday, instead of worrying about work on Monday, I’ll be worrying about what beach to go to. Can’t wait to get back to my favorite island. #TakeMeBack
8 1205 July, 2020
on this day, July 3rd 1848...we the people of the Virgin Islands, celebrate 172 years of Emancipation...commemorating the abolition of slavery in the former Danish West Indies.
I had always learned in school that we were the second island in the Caribbean after Haiti to demand our freedom (I had this in my post initially and this is inaccurate - my apologies - thank you @becomingshani for correcting me)...however, we were still ahead of our time in abolishing slavery, 17 years before the US did.
with that said, Happy Freedom Week to my fellow Virgin Islanders...we have always been revolutionaries...lest not forget that!!! #freedomfighters#fireburnqueens#clearderoad#riseup 🇻🇮✨✊🏾
