The Doggy Motel

So I think now I can officially call myself a crazy dog mom. She's spoiled and I thoroughly enjoy doing it! I spent about 4 to 5 days making this unique doggy motel, mostly because of the time it took for things to dry. I drew inspiration from The Pink Motel (for the sign and outside) and the Beverly Hills Hotel for the inside. I absolutely adore their banana leaf wallpaper and their pops of pink everywhere. I learned a lot during the process of making this and there are definitely some things I would do differently next time. If you want to take a go at making your own doggy motel, I only hope my design is a reference point and you put your own personal spin on it. Here's a list of every single tool and product I used along with the project cost to complete a doggy motel.

Daenerys Game of Thrones season 7 White Coat

So as soon as I saw Daenerys winter coat in season 7 of Game of Thrones I just new I had to make it. Michele Clapton was the costume designer and her work is phenomenal! I have never worked with fur and this is actually the first full length jacket I have ever made. I knew I was crazy for attempting this but I'm that determined and I'm that crazy that I did. I spent a week working on this jacket and I mean almost every day from the time I got up until the middle of the night, until damn near dawn. I was exhausted, my fingers were sore and my entire place was covered in fur, by the way it is 100% fake fur. When I completed the jacket I vacuumed my place everyday for a week and there was still traces of fur. The coat is so bad ass and it was worth all the blood sweat and tears. I literally had nose bleeds from fur getting into my nose!

Regrettably during the process I didn't take too many process photos, this first jacket was such a learning experience for me and there are so many things I would do differently. I'm hoping to make another one soon with some improvements but for now the few of you that may want to attempt this on your own I'll offer some tips and ways to approach.

Heading to Mars in my Shiny Bubble Coat.

Remember that jacket I posted back in October of last year? I'm guessing if you're seeing this post you can see that I'm wearing it (finally!!!) Lol. I also have good news since I had gotten so many inquiries about people wanting one of their own. I finally found more of the fabric and have enough to make a couple. I will be posting details at my online shop  mob84.com and instagram (@missodessa) on when they are ready to sell and how much one will run you.

Space wear: Bubble Jackets Made by Odessa

Scored a really nice color shifting fabric from a client ended up making a jacket & it came out so much better than I thought it would! It's my first time making a puff jacket & it's giving me that 90's puff daddy, shiny man suit vibe. I'm looking for more of the fabric but so far have had zero luck finding the exact fabric. It's not foiled dot spandex, its a solid foil and a really good quality. I do however think the foil will wear off after some wear, so this is more of a special occasions jacket than it would be an everyday one. As soon as I find more of this I might do a small run of coats I've gotten a lot of request since posting it on my IG story.
