after the bitterness from disgust, i decided to end things on a positive note, with happiness
concluding the six part emotion series im doing that will end in 2 days (2 you say?? how does that work?!?)
this was partially inspired by
's last challenge, which was to design a look based off an emotion
I'm using the 6 basic emotions that psychologist Ekman identified. He showed different facial expressions to different people across cultures, and found that the six universally recognized emotions were anger, sorrow, fear, surprise, happiness, and disgust, which is what this series will interpret in fashion form.
the theme i chose for happiness was "angel" (counteracting the bitterness of the treatment of religion in disgust), since there are so many stories of "guardian angels" and how people find peace in faith.
I decided to do a structural corset top with lace insert, with a dramatic layered asymmetrical skirt, there is feather collar attached to the dress. accessories i chose are glitter/sparkle platform heels, and a floral headpiece (flowers make everyone feel happy! flowers are used for weddings, to apologize, to romance someone, etc...)
stay tuned for the finale...
