Flockflockflockmade - NERD ALERT - Custom Made Candy Dress

When Brooke stopped by our vintage shop to pick-up a 70s ensemble for her talent show performance, our candy box/cellophane creations caught her eye...

And with a friend's Sweet-16/Halloween party on the horizon, she ordered a custom made party dress to match her sweet, smart and sassy sensibilities...

Inspired by this:
And with a little help from her Mom, Liz and a roll of this:

Ffflockmade - Custom Cellophane - Gagagaga

A few weeks before Halloween 2010, Ambikorn ordered a custom made cellophane party skirt from our Flockflockflockmade Etsy...

get your own custom made cellophane skirt here

It was the very first cello piece we created to be shipped and taped on by the client herself!

We were a little worried that the final taping might get a bit... sticky. But as you can see, she put it together like a pro!

She sent us this pic of her dressed as Lady Gaga for a Halloween Costume Contest... that she WON!!!

Congrats Ambikorn! And thanks for the awesome feedback!

Working Girls - Vintage at the Office and After Hours

When our friend and frequent co-conspiritor photographer Jorge Novoa called to say he'd gained access to the El Cortez corporate offices (in all their old Downtown Las Vegas splendor) for an afternoon shoot, we jumped at the chance to style an office-appropriate vintage look book with our favorite sisters Kat and Val McKenzie.

What resulted was a blend of 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s back-of-house (Vegas lingo for office work) ready vintage looks with a set of quitting-time-cocktail dresses to kill.

We hope your stay has been a pleasure and we'll see you again real soon ;)

To Die For - Cotton Candy prints on Etsy

Corlene and I can't decide if Cotton Candy is just the lazy heiress to a pair of matriarchal and patriarchal fortunes in her namesake commodities, tired out from a long afternoon of dressing...
Or maybe she's narcoleptic and like all her kind, when excitement from a fashionable discovery sends a spike of endorphins through her cerebellum, falls fast asleep on the spot.
Perhaps something more sinister is afoot... a mini marshmallow overdose and post sugar rush pass out... it's hard to say.
All we know for certain is that Cotton Candy read The Great Gatsby from her pastel satin cushioned window seat instead of attending her 13th birthday party and things have never been the same since.

MEET MARKET - our newest muse Candace Campbell

Meet the oh so lovely and talented Candace Campbell!
Behind the lens Candace is a high style hair and make-up maven and in front of the lens she's often pictured as a modern pin-up.
Hippie chic at heart, we love Candace best in what she loves, bohemian cuts in soft fabrics and American classic patterns.
These are photographer Corlene Byrd's favorite shots from their recent Sunday afternoon excursion in Downtown Las Vegas.
In August Candace tries out her sea legs in our next flockshot installation PAPERBOAT opening August 6th, 2010 at Flockflockflock Shop.

FFFALLING From Above - Flockflockflock Shoot Preview

This Saturday we spent the afternoon with two of our very favorite ladies... the lovely and talented Melissa Marth in front of the lens and the equally compelling and creative Corlene Byrd behind the lens.

Here's a teaser of what's to come...

We were looking for a Snow White type, willing to lie in the dirt and look etheral. Melissa made it better than we imagined.

Next stop, Photoshop.
