My little Julie character is dressed up in a kigurumi costume, which is a Japanese cozy costumes that are like pyjamas! :D Made of fleece, so they'd be extra warm to wear in bed on a cold night! I had a little obsession of it a couple of weeks ago and was very determined to own one one day! Haha, I even wanted to hold a Kigurumi sleep over for my birthday this year! (>_<) But yeah, maybe not :P lmao! I still haven't decided on which one to buy though, so many cute animal ones!
While I was on a tumbring rampage for kigurumi photos (lol), I stumbled across an artist named: Melissa Haslam (her portfolio) - only because she completed a series of kigurumi based paintings, and they are absolutely beautiful, realistically enchanting!! At first sight, I thought they were real people, but on a closer observation, Haslam's detailing in her paintings is amazingly precise! Here are a few of my favourites:
Aren't they amazing? :)
When I was reading through her portfolio, I discovered that she's actually a Melbourne based artist! And she graduated from RMIT University with a Bachelor of Visual Arts! I don't know why but that struck me as so unbelievably inspirational. Can't help but want to become a post graduate at RMIT again for Visual Arts, once I've finished with Multimedia Systems :)
When I look at her paintings, it makes me feel an excitement about my future - hard to explain. I think I'm just very inspired by her work <3
Love, from Julie xox
