this is really/kind of/i think good. relates to life in that: clothes are not just clothes, they are in combination with yourself. like curating a space. and you are the space. with walls.
relates to self: sometimes forgetting how to curate self. interesting because: how to stand. where arms go. where hips go. head tilt, pigeon toes, slumpy shoulder, feet apart, looking around.
i like the in-general idea of trying to swap yourself with someone else. i think it lets you know more about yourself when you try not to be it.
i picked that picture because of the open+closed sort of leg gestures.
and there are some where three people of similar stature will change clothes+hair+glasses and it becomes hard to follow them through the outfit changes. recognisably by objects/clothings. personality/identity in your clothes.

from the previous post's dyeing session,
t-shirt was cut and sewn into some small shorts,
remainder of tshirt was then tied around into a cropped top.
it was going to be chopped up more into a stringy sort of crop top,
but this seemed better for un-burnt shoulders when pretending
to be a forest creature. a coloured one.
