I have been trying to come up with ideas of themes that I can use to help me practice drawing more. Especially things incorporating the complete figure. The other day I was musing on the clothes that I used to wear as a kid, and just how much fashions have changed since then. Growing up in the 80's and 90's meant that there were things that we thought were so cool - but if we pulled them out and wore them now people would think we were nuts. It was a fun time.
So anyway, I had some pretty rockin clothes that I used to wear and I thought that I would try and remember some of them and draw them out for practice. All of these outfits are completely genuine - I actually went out in public wearing them (if you can believe it)(those born pre-1990 will understand).
Why anyone else would be interested remains to be seen - however it's amusing for me in the meantime. :)
So here we have 'Things I used to wear: #1'
~ The oh so stylish overall kinda things - made from fluorescent colored fabrics ~
(the more fluorescent and the more colors the better).
~ The slouchie socks ~
(making something of a comeback I might add)
~ The kung-fu shoes ~
(hands up who had kung-fu shoes and who thought they were awesome)
~ The hair scrunchie ~
(also in fluorescent color scheme)
~ The hair tied up in a pony and then braided ~
(the height of fashion)
I can tell this is going to be fun.
