World Premiere of Bryanboy’s New Hobby

I’ll let you in on a little secret but you can’t tell anyone (not even your own mother) because I’m a very, very, very insecure person and I am not capable of handling criticism well shockawesarcasmhorror.

Bryanboy's secret

Bitch please. Click click click!

Well hello there!

Bryanboy

I’ve taken up baking as a hobby.

Just kidding.

I had cake.

Again.

cake

Ok, fine, I ate a quarter of it before I gave it to the help.

Bryanboy

I’m telling you, I have one foot in the grave as I’m typing this. I really can’t afford to eat cake (or anything EDIBLE for that matter) right now. I measured myself earlier this week and my hips are 33 inches wide! It’s disgusting. Mortifying, if you ask me. I don’t know about you (and frankly, I don’t care) but I want very narrow hips and a nonexistent butt. I don’t want to be one of those hips, tits and ass people. I want lean and long, straight and narrow.

Must. say. no. to. cake.

Bryanboy

A pleasure on the lips means 10 pounds on the hips!

Now.

I can’t keep a good secret for long and with a mouth like mine, I might as well spill the beans out of the can.

I’m sure you all know by now that I’m treading unfamiliar waters. There’s something in the air and I have no idea what it is. I suppose you can also blame the recent haute couture season, all the books I’ve been reading and those DIY fashion blogs. Do a search and you’ll find tons of blogs with people creating their own stuff. Put the pieces together and bam! I’ve digested so much information lately I need some sort of an outlet and get my creative juices flowing.

Simply put, I’m soo inspired!

In the past week or so, I’ve been reading, painting, shopping for materials and supplies, sketching, etc. I’ve got my hands on so many different things but it’s fun! Let’s face it, I don’t have a daily routine (or a 9-5 job) so I sorta kinda but not really have to find something to fill the void. I would rather keep myself busy than sit here and do "nothing".

It’s funny how I first started with painting and ended up making a head to toe outfit for myself.

I kept making "mistakes" on my canvasses so I decided that it would be best to sketch my ideas first in my notebook before I paint them on canvas.

I sketched and I sketched and I sketched with a pencil and coloured my illustrations with crayons like a five year old.

And then I thought, why not turn my sketches (and what I want for my paintings) into something real? Something that I can actually wear?

That’s when "designing" came into the picture. I made all these sketches of outfits that I want, bought loads of fabric, brought them to someone who can lend their working hands who, in turn, made them real!

Do keep in mind that at this point, I refuse to be labelled as an "artist" or a "designer". I only consider myself as a hobbyist because to me, this whole "thing" is just a short term hobby. I don’t want to be one of those people who belong in the "anybody can be a designer" club with no qualifications, training or background.

I cringe with horror and disgust whenever people go to prestigious schools, take 1-week "immersion" classes (which are basically glorified SCHOOL TOURS) and go on a high horse as if they took a 4-year course.

Now.

There’s still lots for me to learn. Will I take my hobby one step further? Probably not. I’m happy to keep things where they are. Sketch, create, paint. I made my first outfit so my next step is for me to paint myself on canvas (we’re talking about 4 feet wide by 8 foot tall).

If I like the direction I’m going then I’m definitely gonna make MORE outfits for myself… and only myself.

Hello, I can’t even dress myself properly let alone design shit for other people. If EVER I’m gonna make clothes for others I’ll only offer a size 0 or "00" and no, definitely no vanity sizing. Remember this? You’re too fat, get out!

Point is, all my "creations" are for nobody else but me, myself and I. If people like them, fine. If they don’t, who cares? If people want me to create a certain piece and buy them from me, fine as well! Hahaha!

Enough verbal diarrhea. Here’s my first outfit.

Bird of prey…. flying highhhhhhhhhh. DRAG QUEEN!!! HAHAHAHA!

Mauricio: I think everybody’s beautiful
Mauricio: I’m so democratic
Me: no, more like DIPLOMATIC haha
Mauricio: no, democratic
Mauricio: for the people by the people
Me: Did I show you pictures of the feathers?
Mauricio: diplomatic is not about pleasing everybody
Mauricio: democracy supposedly is
Mauricio: no!!!! SEND ME!!!! i LOVE featherettes
Mauricio: you should make some lashes out of that for yourself!
Me: eyelashes? dude, they’re HUGE!
Mauricio: like dior lashes, the huger the better
Me: nooo I wanna make a necklace out of the feathers

Bryanboy, feather necklace

So I did.

***24 hours later***

Me: So I made a necklace out of featherettes
Mauricio: SEND!!!
Me: It ended up looking like a feather bib with a satin neckline with long, 6-feet long silk chiffon trimmings that you tie on the back
Me: I wanna cry cause there’s a Prada feel to it. EEEEK!! I think it’s the color.
Mauricio: SEND!!!

Bryanboy, feather necklace

Mauricio: that’s very Prada. Maybe you could sew an old prada label from one of your prada clothes and say Miuccia sent it to you herself and it’s a secret prototype.
Me: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Me: how can I make it not so Prada?
Mauricio: I don’t know. if you removed any one of the elements it would still be very prada
Me: if I add elements
Me: like crystals or glass beads??
Mauricio: it would look Versays
Mauricio: like Donatella Versays for Prada
Me: HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!
Mauricio: maybe you could have two done and wear them like bra cups?
Mauricio: WEAR THEM AS BRA CUPS! FEATHERETTE BRA CUPS!
Me: NOOO the size of each bib is about the size of my chest. these featherettes are ginormous!
Mauricio: then get a boob job!
Me: NOOOOOO!

    I’ve would have loved to see something more like Lanvin, the feathers are screaming DRAG all over the place, remember luxury is discret

  2. leslie

    i LOVE the feather necklace!
    how much will you sell that for?

  3. sandie

    I think it looks elegant. It’s just different with the part infront, but it can work out in the fashion world & with the trendsetters, you never know…
    Good luck. Even though you say it’s just a hobby, you could become a famous designer, life is full of surprises…

  4. crackwhore deluxe

    I agree.
    The necklace is so beautiful. Where are the feathers from? Does it come in other colors?

  5. peta loathes you

    HOW MANY POOR BIRDS HAVE TO DIE FROM YOUR SUPERFICIALITY?

  6. MURDERER!

    PEOPLE DO NOT BUY THIS SAD FOOL’S NECKLACE
    HE IS A MURDERER! WHY WOULD YOU WEAR A DEAD BIRD ON YOUR NECK?
    FUR AND FEATHERS ARE FOR ANIMALS, NOT HUMANS!

  9. UMM…shorter feathers would prob work better….i am not quite feeling the outfit..maybe its the color..or the combination….the short’s material doesn’t do it for me either…
    but keep designing clothes Bry…that’s just the first one anyways…
    Ur still FAB!!

  10. check out this fashion inspiration:

    i think you’ll dig it (post dior couture show and all)

  11. I feel sorry for you, I really do. You’re such a pathetic individual. To make comments on your own blog to create attention. Peta? C’mon how delusional are you? Stop trying to make yourself known or equivalent to a celebrity. You’re nothing but a 32 year old, HIV positive, sexually confused idiot. You like to consider yourself part of the so called “fashion scene”, when really you’re style is a mere impersonation of Nicole Richie. The only difference between both your styles is that drugged she still looks much better.

  12. Sarah from Boston

    I’m a proud member of PETA: People for the Eating of Tasty Animals.
    I’m not feeling the outfit. The necklace is good, the sweater is good (a little funky for my tastes, but I’m really vanilla), the shorts are a bit flashy, and everything together looks a bit overloaded.
    I give it a ‘B’ :-)

  13. couturier

    try a different cloth for the shorts. it doesn’t work for me.
    as for the necklace. put beads and such onto it. it would look more elegant.
    the look is great. it really does look very prada.
    you’ll be a famous designer. i know it. you have it in you! i swear.
    good luck!
    stay gorgeous!

  14. Haha PETA? Your haters never give up, do they?
    Anyways I’m really feeling the outfit, of course, only you seem to manage to pull these types of things off, as others are too fat/insecure/ugly. lmao.

  15. hey bryan (close hahaha) anyway just wanna say i really admire you a lot.! (not to mention your fashion) ! go gurl show them waht we got! im at your back..! (reading your clothes expensive tags hahahahah!)

  16. hey bryan (close hahaha) anyway just wanna say i really admire you a lot.! (not to mention your fashion) ! go gurl show them waht we got! im at your back..! (reading your clothes expensive tags hahahahah!)

  17. fashionista

    the outfit is, in general, runway worthy….THOUGH, it needs some tweaking
    the material for the shorts isn’t appealing, it looks a little cheap…dare i say, tacky…and though i think the tailoring was excellent, i don’t quite fancy the silhouette on you, perhaps more volume on the shorts would be nice…
    as for the accessory….. sehr fabelhaft!!!… i see the Prada influence, not so much in the colour, but in the style and material… very feminine, almost avant garde by today’s standards… i would buy it…but i would request that there be some refinement made with the material, perhaps large scale polished resin beads or chains around the neck instead.. and i do love the feathers, but i prefer them shorter…
    keep rockin’ girl!!! i would so totally want to work for you if you ever decide to launch your own line!

  18. GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!screw all those peta people, killing the bird was definitely worth it!!

  19. taylor

    At least you admit that you are a hobbyist..that outfit is atrocious.

  20. Uh Bryanboy, that feather necklace ya got there totally reminded me of the Louis Vuitton ones, the ones from this fall…

  21. taylor

    and…..the outfit is too mitchy matchy, the cobalt blue is so last 2 seasons, the shorts look very cheap.i don’t think the shoes/shades matches the outfit. overall, it looks like a homemade haloween costume “Super Bading”

  22. i love what you do bryanboy but this outfit screams divisoria! i mean its just obviously cheap like what japanese whores would wear. the shorts…ugh its just unacceptable. its like what those strippers would wear. i mean its really not good.
    i think you should consider sourcing good materials. it doesnt matter if you match it with a birkin or a neverfull, if its cheap its overthrows everything.
    dont worry, next time would be better

  23. FUCK THE PETA PEOPLE!!! I think they are actualy animals speaking for themselves…

  24. and…..the outfit is too mitchy matchy, the cobalt blue is so last 2 seasons, the shorts look very cheap.i don’t think the shoes/shades matches the outfit. overall, it looks like a homemade haloween costume “Super Bading”

    check your facts straight. cobalt blue is one of the biggest colors for fall 07/08, everyone from marc jacobs to jil stuart is doing it.

  25. bitchy_me

    hhhmmm.. i think the outfit looks fit, especially the shorts.. i luv ur hair though.. looks better.. but the outfit? get some gas and a match…

  26. I think it’s more appropriate to call you a stylist than a designer

  27. I’d buy the whole thing sans the blue velveteen-ish shorts and featherette necklace. They’re too loud, and kinda ridiculous for everyday wear (not unless I’m in for a costume party, that is…)

  28. taylor

    Actually, cobalt blue emerged in Spring 06 collections.Influential designers as Yoji, Etro(strong for color/prints) and Lanvin has this on their pallete. Even Bazaar magazine featured it on their color story, I believe in their Summer 06 issue. This color came out in Fall 06 with most designers interpreted it in different shades. Most notable ones were Stella’s, Lacroix RTW and Gucci. Spring 07, cobalt and white was the hottest thing. Vogue May issue had the supermodels wear cobalt/white on their cover.Powerhouse designers as Sander,Givenchy,Margiela and Balenciaga has cobalt as an important color in their story.I frequent the Premiere Vision shows in Paris,Fall 06/Spring 07/Fall07 has cobalt in most of the mills’ color pallette. And I should know a lot of this color as I had my team researched this color for my grouping. I don’t recall seeing cobalt in Jacob’s collecion, maybe as accent but Jill Stuart is never directional, more of a commercial designer. I do wonder if cobalt will have the same longevity as the teal on previous years.If you haven’t heard of WGSN, do sign up as most designers get their forecasting from….with a fee of course but it’s very helpful.
    Btw.. we had passed 2 seasons already, Fall 07 and Resort 07 ,Spring 08 will be shown soon…..most designers at this time are also working on their Fall 08 color stories. PV is showing Fall08/09 fabrics in Sept. in Paris….hmm, i wonder if i will see more cobalt?

  29. taylor

    I meant, fashion houses as Sander,Givenchy,Margiela and Balenciaga. Resort 08 not 07…my bad

  30. geraldine

    You look ridiculous! Why don’t you get an operation and get it over and done with and be a woman whore? We all know that this woman whore in you is dying to get out.

  31. PSYCHOBITCH with a splash of sunshine

    you are hella-amazing and totallyFAB..
    HERE’S MY COMMENT ABOUT THE OUTFIT:
    the outfit’s gotta go.
    the short’s not short or long enough.
    the feathery stuff is just yuck.
    that shirt beneath your blazer is too plain.
    i hate the boots (the style is really outdated).
    the color scheming is bad.
    the fabrication is not good.
    right from the getgo, i can see that the whole outfit’s not sewn properly.. too much pukering and wrinkles
    wearing it in some place like that makes you look like an idiot.
    A LITTLE ADVICE:
    try experimenting with prints and colors that work.
    feathers are fab but do it in the right proportion.
    follow your friend’s advice about the feather lashes.
    shine is good but do it on the right places. not on the shorts.
    get your jaws surgically chipped, they are too masculine.
    ON THE POSITIVE SIDE:
    i like your bag darling, is it channel?
    the gloves are hella-fabulous..
