AlbGlinka Interview, Part 1:
Questions posed by Sydney of “A New Yorker In Houston” fame...
The lovely Sydney sent me a bunch of interview questions several months ago, which I then deleted accidently. :-0!
She was then gracious enough to try and remember them all again
and give me a second shot at answering them. I'm gonna do one question per post and hopefully get to them all. No holds barred! Here goes!1. I got to know you first through the giant set of glitter lips. What has happened to the famous and fabulous ALBGLINKA lips, and what is the story behind them?
The AlbGlinka lips are currently in a dormant phase, resting peacefully in a large vial of pink glitter that is sitting on my drafting table. Some of the Glitterlip glitter was appropriated for my recently completed “Homophobia” Issues Painting (see previous post
). Madame Glinka, of course, signed off on this!
I'm not sure when Madame Glinka will make her next appearance, but it might be at this coming June's Gay Pride Parade. The E-Entertainment story behind the lips: It all started with an insane pink wig that I found in a costume shop one Halloween many years ago.
I already owned this half-mask that I found hanging on a tree at *an undisclosed location*
. I also had this big latex nose that I'd gotten from doing a bit of Supernumerary (Mime
) work with San Francisco Ballet for their "Nutcracker" that year, and I was inspired to glue the nose to the mask. Then, to do my lips up, I used Maybeline pink lipstick and this pink craft glitter I had. I wanted that fuller Angelina Jolie/ Lisa Rinna (Right, Syd?!?)/ Octo-Mom/ Killer Klowns From Outer Space
look, so I did what all
collagen-deprived gals do when the budget is stretched thin, and went outside my natural lip-line with thick black (mascara) lip-liner.Madame Glinka was born!!!!!
