Week 5: Point of View

Day 1: Can you wear every piece of clothing you own all at one time?

Introducing the fit (feat. my amazing dog who now hates me)…….

My everyday activity is the quiet contemplation right after I wake up. During this important time I ask myself the important questions.

” Why am I here?” “When can I go back to sleep?” “Why am I an art student?”

“What’s for breakfast?”

The result of wrestling off the layers of clothes…..

Day 2: Build a fort that would impress your childhood self.

Day 3: Make your own mask.

Day 4: Researching your favorite article of clothing.

My favorite article of clothing is sweatpants. I probable wear them like 5 out of the 7 days in a week. They’re comfy and great.

Sweatpants was first introduced in the 1920’s by Emile Camuset, the founder of Le Coq Sportif. They first pair was knitted jersey pant where athletes could run and stretch comfortably in. Once these practical pants were only worn for sporting events and at home. Now, they are available in many fashionable styles and are worn in a variety of public situations. Because of their comfort and fashion, they have become a popular choice of clothing.

They were popularized as ideas of health and an athletic body became more fashionable. Sweatpants quickly began appearing at the Olympics, and it was normal to see athletes wearing them there by 1936. Seeing athletes in sweats would help to popularize them but for the next few decades they would remain strictly workout attire. It won’t be until the 80’s when sweatpants break outside of athletic wear. ( Rocky, the movie, had a huge influence in the fashion of sweatpants and help give it a push into liesure wear. Jane Fonda’s workout videos also helped contriube.)

Sweatpants are usually made from cotton or polyester, often of a heavy knit. They often have elastic in the waistband, drawstrings, and may or may not have pockets. Some sweatpants can also feature elasticized cuffs at the hem of the leg. Sweatpants are traditionally ash gray in color but are now available in most colors. Traditionally quite “baggy” and loose, sweatpants are now also available in more form-fitting shapes; moreover, they have flexibility and comfort. The design of sweat pants lead to different variations of it such as track pants, tare-away pants, and fashion pants.

Day 5: Portrait Day.

I had a lot of fun doing this! When I asked my family to help I was surprised by how enthusiastic they were. I found a few photos and couldn’t pick one so I did them all 🙂

  1. Awesome, Alexis! You really invested in each prompt. I love the different fort modes. Especially struck by the portrait recreations! Did you just happen to have that red floral fabric?

    1. Yeah! I just happened to have it. I asked my mom if she had anything resembling the pattern and she found my grandmother’s shawl in red and green. It was kind of crazy how similar it looked like to the actual portrait. We tried to overlap the two shawls but it wasn’t transparent enough to have some of the green flash through.
