my rainbow life: SO MANY COLORS

I’ve been posting a series called “my rainbow life” where each day’s post has a color theme and features a photo montage from my everyday life in that specific color.  This is the finale of the “my rainbow life” series.

Here’s a mega-montage at all the color-themed photo montages of my life looped into a rainbow of colors.  This makes me so happy as I go around and around.  But seriously, if you can look at your life all awesomely rainbow-ized and NOT get a little giddy, you just might be dead inside.

Or color-blind.

But anyways, here it is, the most beautiful and colorful life one could ask for:

My Most Colorful Shopping Trip Ever

Every time I go fabric shopping I experience a range of emotions: giddy, focused, ecstatic, unfocused, hopeless, determined…..

Not only did my latest fabric shopping trip deliver this entire range of emotions, it also gave me the brightest, most colorful shopping cart that I’ve EVER had in a fabric store.  I mean, once I bought periwinkle, lilac and emerald fabric together for a theater show, but that’s nothing compared to the yardage I purchased for my monoprismatic collection.

I guess I really DO love color afterall.

Going from all Brown to ALL RAINBOW!

In my past collections, I’ve used browns quite liberally. Chocolate brown, tan, sand, khaki, rust…..any and all browns.  I love them and I know how to use them.

Audio Helkuik’s “h/g: you be the hunter, i’ll be the gatherer” collection on the Omaha Fashion Week runway.

Brown is my favorite color to design with.  I’m a big fan of black too, especially the brown/black combo.  My love for brown often seeps into my designs for theater costuming.

Since the collection I am designing right now is all bright color and zero brown, I feel a bit out of my comfort zone but I’m all sorts of giddy about it.  I can just hear people thinking “You can’t go from ALL BROWN to ALL RAINBOWS?!?!?”  Watch me. And, you know, I’ve done it before, and it was awesome.

My partner, Cameron, and I in our brown-on-brown outfits the day we got married.

Tea party reception. All browns. (I made my outfit, so I got to pick ALL the browns in it!)

Cutting the cake together. Jeesh, I love brown.

Rainbow confetti starts invade the all brown day.

ALL BROWN turns into a super fun RAINBOW CELEBRATION!

Rainbow cake! Seriously, there were probably more pictures taken of this cake than of me and my partner.

Brown to rainbow, ta da!

Worry not, folks, you CAN go from all brown to rainbow.  My colorful collection, monoprismatic, has taken over my usually all-brown studio and I just love the color invasion!
