Every Idea Comes From Somewhere

When I saw this photo of a Godzilla/Kaiju monster plushie rock band, I knew I had to paint it! You can find lots of great collectables like these in An Unautorised Guide to Godzilla Collectables by Sean Linkenback Schiffer Books.

Shopping and Customising

I found Betty Jo Designs one day on Flickr and nearly had a heart attack. Needless to say I immediately ordered 3 broaches. I love my strawberry eating Godzilla. They are made out of old linoleum! I wore them today on an old Brown gabardine dress that I had customized by my friend Doro in Brussels. The dress is fabulous, probably an old uniform, but I had the skull added, because it was a little plain.
