A word from Kelly, the 'Kurt Cobain' costume creator:

31 days of costumes! This is accomplished however, whatever and any which way I can. My muse is none other then my beautiful 5 year old little lady. The one...the only...Lumin Ziola Nash! I don't know how to sew but I can cut, rip, tie, tape, paint, glue and make magic happen. Most of everything is from thrift (half off days), reused, borrowed, from the back yard or from Nonna. It’s always a wild scavenger hunt to find specifc pieces to accomplish any costume and in a pinch you make something out of nothing. I consider myself a kind of creative MacGyver. I have some ideas, inspirations & pieces gathered, but it really is day to day. Environment (traveling), mood, schedule, tantrums (either by Mom or Lulu), ... are all obstacles. Most times the costume has not been tried on prior, so there's always a chance my vision is a fail. Some functioning better then others, but hey give me a break. I also am not a photographer, I use my phone. Not a hairstylist or do I know how to do makeup.
