Badge Ladies

It can be hard work sharing the limelight with a feisty Tupperware Lady. The high drama, the hot air, the plastic fumes. It can be very competitive at times. Not so much in the Jana Pitman/Tasmin Lewis sense as in the Jana Pitman/Tasmin Lewis sense.

So in the upcoming jewellery party at QUT Art Museum as a sideshow of La Femme Domestique,

Plastic Girl is going to come dressed as a real life Tupperware Lady - the badge, the hair the frock, the makeup, the shoes, the accessories. Which leaves me precisely where? I could come in drag as her boring husband (not that she has a boring real life husband!). Or should I come au-naturale (not nude) as Rebecca-the-Wrecker, with hammer badge, king gee overalls, tool belt and hammer dangling from hammer strap. Or would that be stupid?
Any costume suggestions?

Firstly, you should redye your hair bright red to match your hammer logo - nothing like a bit of branding reinforcement.

Then you should have a t-shirt with the hammer logo and your blog address on it. Wear your red boots too and your own jewellery to show people as a walking example of Wrecker chic.

not to worry - this time my advice is free.

I agree with Florence...
A walking display of character & products - people would not only be in 'awe of your wares' but,
as a vision in red with a big hammer, they can also be wary of your aura, which helps with stranger danger!

given that your art transfoms the ordinary into the extraordinary i reckon you should wear drab outer skin and halfway through speech/whatever remove said skin to reveal exquisite self sprinkle some fairy dust to distract people and when they turn back to you you'll be transformed just like your art
