Weekly Capsule 44.1: AutomnePosted: November 2, 2015
Did everybody have a fun Halloween? I didn’t dress up, because I didn’t have anywhere to go (Halloween is kind of a new thing here in Vietnam, mostly celebrated by teenagers who just want an excuse to party), but I did get into the spirit of Halloween by doing a Twilight Zone marathon. I’m such a homebody that I always prefer low-key celebrations to big parties. Even back when I lived in the US, most Halloweens I just hung out with friends and ate candies and watched scary movies.
Anyway, here’s my interpretation of this week’s SIA painting, “The Season” series by Alphonse Mucha. I picked the “Autumn” panel as my main inspiration – it’s most evident in my grape bunch brooch, to echo the grapes in the painting – but there is a bit of “Spring” in my white skirt as well. Not surprising, considering those are my favorite seasons.
If you want to participate in SIA and haven’t sent me your outfit yet, there’s still time! And don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the full round-up.
