Fashions off the Shelf: A Collection Inspired by Picture Books…

Morning all! I’m taking a break from reviewing today to bring you a little treat I’ve been thinking about ever since I was inspired by a post over at Book Riot about Literary Inspired Fashion Collections that Should Exist.  Besides raising a few hearty chuckles, it got me cogitating over other picture books that might lend themselves to making an unforgettable fashion statement and finally, I am ready to present to you my Spring collection of KidLit-Inspired Fashion!

The model for the clothing today is Grishnakh, a goblinish little fellow that I found lurking in the mini-fleshling’s toybox and was only too happy to lend his memorable countenance to our cause.  Enjoy!

Inspired by The Lonely Beast series, and just in time for a Southern Hemisphere winter:

Inspired by the classic Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, here’s something for the lady who wants to stand out at that fancy cocktail soiree:

For the bride who wants to appear a little enigmatic on her big day, we have a dress inspired by the short but memorable Duck!Rabbit!:

Inspired by Harold and the Purple Crayon, for the well dressed gentleman who also likes to show off his playful side:

And finally, inspired by The Watermelon Seed, we have something for the beach bunny in all of us:

So there you have it.  Do tell us what you think of our attempts to break into the fashion industry.  And any feedback on Grishnakh’s performance would also be welcome – he’s thinking of giving up on the toy gig and trying to find work as a specialty model.  I suggested he might try auditioning for the “Before” shots in anti-wrinkle cream advertisements, but other suggestions (or offers of work) will be happily received.

Until next time,

Bruce

  2. Oh, I feel for Mr Grishnakh! I spend quite a bit of time in that same story! How to make Rhythm look like a chicken?! Or a sheep or a fool? Aaakkk! On another note — this is totally unrelated, but I just came across a book on Book Patrol that I think you might appreciate — http://bookpatrol.net/heres-one-out-of-the-closet-book-that-doesnt-bother-the-religious-right/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+BookPatrol+%28Book+Patrol%29

    • Oh Lordy, that is one right scary title. I weep for the world some (most) days, despite having no tear ducts. I did take a bit of inspiration for the fashion post from your stoic example. Grins hank his a big fan of your costumery.
