Visiting a thrift store in the city, I came out with quite the haul for my new machine age/futurism projects!
I find this thrift store a great source of appropriate elemtents- I complain about their prices in the clothing department but their jewelry is curiously cheap by comparison.
It's odd that whenever I have a certain style I'm developing, I can always go there and their selection will be conducive to parts I need. If I were still doing my multi-coloured tribal right now for instance, I'd not have found much at all. But it's sci-fi spacetime for me again, so there was much to be had in the way of silvery streaky spacey bits.
The handbags are for stripping- the 'leather' will be used for panels in brooches, cuffs, etc. I have some ideas with them that will make them look like worked metal rather than fabric.
I would just like to note I didn't add the lens flare there- naturally obtained! Love it.
