Larry KroneThen and Now (Cape Collaboration), 2012found needlework projects, sequins, yarn, fabric, embroidery floss

"I am a compulsive thrift shopper and collector of things … For years I accumulated framed embroidery projects with the vague intention of hanging them on the wall. When I realized I would never have enough room for them all, I took them out of their frames and in handling them was touched by the individual lives and stories that each of the pieces seemed to contain.  I was also struck by the (obvious) fact that they were fabric and that they could function as more than just merely wall-mounted visuals-they could be really used.  I imagined making a coat modeled after a classic fur coat, each embroidery representing a ‘life,’ in the way that individual pelts pieced together to make a huge fur are literal remnants of the precious lives of the animals sacrificed to make it.  But as I got working, the amassing of all of these pieces in such an anonymous way felt wrong, like I was exploiting their creators.  Instead, I decided to patch them together leaving space around them so that I could feature each piece and then enhance it with my own workmanship, sewing sequins one by one to cover all of the area not already embroidered.  That felt fairer to me and satisfied my personal impulse to challenge myself to do ridiculous feats." — Larry Krone

but, bbygrl, why a tura satana appreciation day?

[tw : rape]
she’s a total babe. duh.
she’s japanese, filipino, cheyenne + irish. 
she was simultaneously a straight-a student in school while being viciously bullied for her heritage + size and punished by her parents for getting into fights. i mean, even without the straight a’s, she was strong and endured feeling isolated at home and at school.
she’s a fellow rape survivor — “Walking home from school at the age of nine she was gang raped by five men. According to Satana, her attackers were never prosecuted and it was rumored that the judge had been paid off. She tells how this prompted her to learn the martial arts of aikido and karate and, over the next 15 years, track down each rapist and exact revenge. ’I made a vow to myself that I would someday, somehow get even with all of them’, she said years later. ‘They never knew who I was until I told them.’”
she began living on her own at the age of 13, after her parents married her to a 17-year old and she wasn’t having that bullshit. i can’t even imagine what that was like.
she was an extremely successful burlesque dancer, and even when she got pregnant at 19 she danced through the first eight months of her pregnancy! and yeah, she still made BANK. 
faster pussycat! kill! kill! — a cult classic john waters apparently calls the greatest movie ever made. i still haven’t seen it, but from what i’ve read it portrays the three female leads (tura satana is the LEAD lead) in positions or power that normally men are portrayed in, and that’s allll the way back in the 60’s. she did all her own stunts and fight scenes. the majority of satana’s styling and one-liners, and some additional key concepts of the film, were satana’s own doing.
after being shot by a former lover and staying in a hospital, she decided to study nursing and she did just that. she even briefly worked as the dispatcher for the lapd.
tura satana passed away on 2/4/2011, but she’s still amazing and one of my inspirations as a woc, especially as a mixed-race asian rape survivor struggling to embrace my sexuality. <3 and that’s why i’m giving her her own day! just who she was makes me feel good about me.
all facts taken from tura satana’s wikipedia page


ugh, sometimes i channel this wonderbabe when my day is terrible
