One of the most rewarding things that happens since I started this blog is receiving an image or a quick thank-you note from someone who was able to use one of the patterns I've posted to create something for themselves. Often it is from someone making a costume, or a personal fetish item, but sometimes it's from another artist.
This was the case this past week when I received a thank-you from Kate O'Brien, a remarkably talented Australian artist and photographer who creates builds fantastic images using found objects and costumes she makes completely from scratch. She found my hood pattern useful as a starting point, and was able to modify it to create the costume used in the image above.
Please visit her site or her flickr stream see more of her amazing, intricate and beautiful work. And Kate, thank you for sharing it with all of us!
