Cosmic, Far-out 12-year-olds.

I can't remember exactly how I first happened upon Fallie's Scrapbook, but it's fast becoming a favorite read.  Her laid back, minimal blogging style allows for her caprice and creativity to shine through, and Tuuli, the 12-year-old from Estonia behind it, has it in spades.  I'm addicted to her lollipop-headed fashion illustrations, portraits, and far-out outfit posts.


She's a simple kid with a flair for badassery.  Care for a wolf tee of your own?  There's a rather rad one in my shop right now!

Here, a look from Hermes' F/W 2010 show... I believe that her sister is some kind of fashion designer, and Tuuli does all of the illustrations for her line (from what I understand).  Her ability to render each piece makes every outfit look like candy-- if she came out with a book of paper dolls, I'd definitely buy...



Here, she brings Brian Boy and Julia Frakes to life... gotta love those teal lips...




Cosmically Lacoste...





Look at how she got the texture on the tights so right in her illustration of a Topshop Unique Fall 2010 ensemble...


When I first saw this portrait she did of Tavi in her MiuMiu, I nearly crapped.  It's amazing.  Must... commission.... portrait.... to hang in dining room and intimidate/disgust guests! 


A portrait of the artist as a young girl.  You guys just need to check out her blog for the full effect.  It'll make you wish for a little sister if you don't have one, and hate your own little sister for not being this cool if you do.

Speaking of coolness, for those of you that asked on my last blog post, the stand-up thing last night well--- actually, much better than I was prepared for...  I set a really low bar for myself, mainly just don't throw up-- but once I got up there, my trepidation melted off and I felt really good.  People even came up to me afterwards to tell me how much they liked it-- which is freaking crazy!  I was prepared to come back on here and talk about how I totally choked, but... I definitely did the opposite.  It is weird, but hey man, I'll take it!!  What happens from here, I don't know... but I know what I'll be doing next Wednesday.

Yours,

Elissa.

So is that why you dressed me up all pretty-like when we were younger?
