DIY Dinosaur Handbag

Recreate the look with Ally's dinosaur handbag tutorial:



How would you describe your style?

Very cartoony! I love anything bright and colourful and really bold patterns. I once worked in a primary school and the kids found it really easy to paint and draw my outfits- I took that as a good sign. 

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

Oh gosh I have sooo many. I'm such a dress hoarder; I will never be able to have enough pretty dresses. My favourites would have to be my skunk dress and my toucan dress

Who are your style icons?

Hmm that's a really hard one! I'm not really sure. I think I'd have to go more for genres than people! I love theatrical clothing and I think a lot of my outfits are really costumy. I've always been really inspired by stage costumes and anything where the way someone dresses clearly has to represent who that person is and what they're about. 

Do you have any favourite designers?

I love Christian Lacroix for his mental designs and Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada because she's not afraid of colour one little bit.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

We have an amazing vintage shop called Armstrongs down our road which is fabulous; if you visit Edinburgh it is a must. Apart from that I am a big fan of Lazy Oaf. 

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Yeeeeah! I Make most of my dresses myself. I just love starting off with a piece of fabric and then a couple of hours later being able to wear a dress. I love printing my own fabrics too; I think it makes my designs really personal. 

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

I think just do what makes you feel most like you. I love wearing bright opaque tights and garish prints but only because that's what works for me.

    Great interview with one of the best comic book artists on this site! Btw. I would love to read a comic book with a hero who has necromancy as his super power.
