Swiss Miss Party Get Up
What kind of party involves cheese, a giant Riiiiicolaaaa! style horn and amazing designer friends? The SwissMiss=5 Party of course! My friend and studiomate Tina, better known as Swiss Miss, just celebrated the fifth birthday of her blog, and I decided to dress the theme. Big shocker, right? This one was a bit of work, but the look on Tina’s face when she saw me dressed in the style of her homeland made it totally worth any trouble… even the gigantic third degree glue gun burn I sustained to my arm. In case you want to make your own Appenzeller costume, I’ve outlined the steps.
Step 1. Procure and saw a plastic cow in half using a bread knife.
Step 2. Paint cow halves gold.
Step 3. Glue golden cow halves to a ribbon trimmed with fringe.
Step 4. Email convoluted vest pattern and measurements to your mom in Mississippi.
Step 5. Sew crazy trim all over vest.
Step 6. Assemble, accessorize, grab a drink and do a jig!
Here is some more fun from the event photo booth, and as you can see, the party was a real blast. Tina, you throw an awesome party, and you’re a one-of-a-kind role model for design goodness and fun!
