30 Style Accessories Made From The Most Random Stuff You Can Find In Your Home By This Canadian Artist

It’s hard to pinpoint just how old fashion as a concept and phenomenon is, but one thing is for certain—it has been around for so long that it’s an inevitable part of any culture and society.

But, as is with most things, fashion too has been around for so long that it is becoming increasingly harder to come up with something new, something fresh.

Enter Gab Bois, Montreal-based artist who has been effectively reinventing fashion using everyday items. Bois’ ingenious ideas are featured in the curated list below, along with an interview with the mastermind herself.

This set includes six 15mm washi tape rolls and twelve 8 mm rolls. Each roll has a unique botanical theme with gold foil accents (there is one snowflake roll, but it is pretty so I’m letting it slide). All the patterns are lovely and will be perfect for decorating journals/planners and more. Where To Buy Washi Tape For Decorating Journals

Gab Bois takes that which is mundane and ordinary and turns it into something that makes most people do a double take, bringing in a fresh way of seeing things. The photographer defamiliarizes ordinary household and other conventional items as fashion accessories, among many other things.

This includes everything from banana slippers and skull cap cereal bowls to pumpkin hats and a whole bunch of bras and purses, making for some surreal photography. Sure, it’s not all that practical for the most part, but it certainly captivates people with how surreal it looks as works of art.

I’ve been looking for these for almost 2 years, I use to buy them at Walgreens but they no longer sell them. I like the face that they are easy to use, I’ve lost some weight and now I can snap the bottons on and my jeans fit me well Where To Buy Jean Button Replacement For Pants.

“I was always into fashion, especially DIY fashion, even as a kid. I would help my mom remove the leaves from the corn cobs and then we would use them to make doll dresses. I’d also make flower necklaces for the neighborhood cats during my free time, little things like that,” Bois explained the origins of this idea.

“Being an only child and playing by myself, I was put into a position where I had to find ways to keep myself occupied, and I developed a huge interest in doing little crafts, so I can say a part of the work I do now still comes from that childhood interest and curiosity.”

We asked Bois to elaborate on how the whole creativity process goes in her book, and she said this:

“The process starts with an idea. Sometimes, it comes on its own, without me having to even think about it, but sometimes I sit myself down and brainstorm.”

“Then, production. It can take anywhere from 15 minutes to several days, depending on the complexity of the idea and its execution, and whether or not I get it right on the first try.”

“I then finish off with post-production. That part also varies in time and complexity but I always try to create as much of the concept in real life so I only polish off the image in post and don’t do any major editing work.”

A very nice sewing box. The supplies that came with it are very handy. The pin tomato isn’t the best, but it’s great for casual use. The box itself is nice quality and very spacious. I ordered the large size. This box holds all my supplies, embroidery gear except for my larger rings which is fine. For being as big as it is, I’m pleased it isn’t gigantic. The print reminds me of my grandmothers ebrodery box. Very happy with this! Where To Buy Sewing Kit For Sewing Mending

Art is a challenge in and of itself that can sometimes end up pulling an artist back to square one no matter how fleshed out it may look in your head. Bois considers some of the challenges she finds the hardest in her line of art:

“There are many times when an image I thought would look a certain way in my head doesn’t turn out that way at all. That’s definitely the most challenging part of trying to turn ideas and abstract concepts into three-dimensional objects or sets, because there’s only so much that you can plan in your head before trying it in real life.”

“Also, sometimes a concept that I think is super clear and makes so much sense is completely lost in translation when brought into a picture. It’s definitely frustrating when that happens, but that pushes me to be resourceful, think outside the box, and try again.”

Lastly, we’ve asked Bois to point out some of her favorites among the slew of designs she’s created over the years, and she had this to say:

“I have many favorites. Sometimes ideas turn out so much better than I had expected and that just brings me so much joy. The orange bra and cell phone inside a sea shell are great examples of that.”

“The other ones I really love because of the context of their production, whether I got help from a loved one to make it or the feelings I experienced while making it. That’s the case for the big band-aid blanket, the book pages made of yellow cheese singles and the ice cream cone made of snow.”
