dc.description.abstract <p>"Mummy" was inspired by the rigid stiffness of mummies, metal armor, and the soft sculptures of Rosa Verloop. Verloop uses nylon stockings, pins and batting to create distorted human flesh. The purpose of this design was to explore mixed creative possibilities of nylon stockings as a medium and make a metal fabric with copperhead BBs. As a child, I was wowed by the beauty of my brother's copperhead BBs, and still loving copper, I chose to use copperhead BBs to give the head corset a metallic armor type look. All the BBs were individually knotted in beige hose and then in rows of two bee bees per knot. The copper coating was fragile and rubbed off on the hose, adding variations of rusty colors. I added a bustier extension for a more intense overall look as the nylons were stretched from head to toe, creating tense lines throughout the silhouette.</p>
