Tiki Tomba (sasssquatch creation)

So I know what you were thinking "SASSSQUATCH DIDNT POST TODAY"
well you are wrong my friends,
you have forgotten that "I stay on hawaiian time brah"
so I'm posting this at 8:57 PM on saturday my time, so there.

ANYWHO
I came home from an irritating day at work; lets just say 5-year-olds aren't always my cup of tea. 
Back to the point.
I'm annoyed and feelings frustrated, so I thought
WHY NOT BE PROLIFIC TODAY!?!?!?!
so I grabbed a bunch of my mom's old fabric and made a dress! 

Forgive my tired face and sorta messy room


so the material the dress is made of is vintage fabric with hand-painted pineapples courtesy of my mother! She is SERIOUSLY the cutest/best person ever. 

The pockets are also made with vintage fabric.
and the buttons are from walmart.
I know, I know, I'm awful and I hereby make an effort to not support the disgusting establishment that underpays their workers, imports virtually all items from Bangladesh where they only pay the workers a measly 17 cents a week, allows child abuse by overweight employees and sells crocs (that's a crime in my eyes) 

The buttons sit on both shoulders

I love pineapples

and POCKETS!!!

Inspiration:

-vintage fabric is inspiring alone

- MY NEW FOUND- SISTERS OLD UKULELE!!!

- The film, The Endless Summer, this film is seriously the cutest, 60's beach flick ever. The men are dreamboats and the surf is superb!

and of course the adorably pastel adorn neighbors from Edward Scissorhands

well I hope you all enjoyed this Sasssquatch Creation,
keep it sassy,

  4. This is really cute!!! I like the buttons on the shoulders. I also love when people reference the neighborhood from "Edward Scissorhands," because the exaggerated color scheme there is so genius.
