   Once again  TicciRockabilly  has made some of the cutest dresses the Rockabilly world has to offer! My favorite is the Night Cherry dress but I love all of them, even the Spider dress for those days I’m feeling a little more sassy and rebellous and want to look more on the Psychobilly side! Check the store out on Etsy, and don’t miss their great Rockabilly Maternity selections also!!

Nukesville Kustoms Pinstriping

Nukesville Kustoms by Bear

Popular in Rockabilly Kulture is the decorative art of pinstriping. Pinstriping can add sexy to flat black or the plain paint job on any vintage car look good, but for myself and others of Rockabilly Kulture, pinstriping can make just about anything look better! My friend Bear is a bad ass pinstriper, he just striped my mailbox and I can’t tell you enough how much I totally freaking love it!!! Bear stripes everything and anything, from hot rods and old caddy’s to high-heels, purses, glassware, canvas, makeup cases, suitcases, chairs, dressers, tables, tv trays, toolboxes and whatever else you could possibly want pinstriped. Bear lives here in Paso Robles, California. Anyone wanting custom pinstriping, or just to follow his work, can find him and talk to him on facebook as “Nukesville Kustoms by Bear”, hope you enjoy his work as much as I do!

First things first: My mailbox!

DIY Rockabilly Lamp

"DIY Rockabilly Lamp"

     I have a hard time finding housewares in my style, so often times I will make or alter something to fit my style or my decor! I like to read at night and didn’t have a lamp for my night stand that went with my decor. My bedroom is red and black with accents of zebra stripes. My large comforter is a red furry shag material and I love it so much that I make everything else in my room to go with it, which is why I created this lamp in these colors and with a little furriness also!

     Things you need to make a DIY Rockabilly lamp:

1.  Lamp shade (usually white, any shape you want- I try Goodwill and Walmart first because they are usually the cheapest, and I like this shape because it’s fun and reminds me of a circus tent!)

2.  Lamp base (Doesn’t have to be the color you want, that can change…)

3.  Ribbon (spool size depends on size of the lamp shade, this is your main color- the red velvet ribbon on my lamp shade)

4.  A second ribbon (this is your accent color or design- the zebra ribbon on my lamp shade)

5.  Extra Large Rick Rack (this is your main color or 2nd main color- I used black Rick Rack)

6.  A small feather boa (in one of your 2 main colors)

7.  Fabric glue (if you use too much it will squeeze out the sides and make a mess and also cause the underneath fabric to wrinkle or wave, and you don’t need to rush to put it on- take your time and let it become a little tacky so the glue is not runny and it will stick easier)

8.  Scissors (to cut your ribbon, rick rack, and boa to the lengths that fit your lamp shade)

9.  Spray paint (for the base of the lamp if it is not the color you want- I bought mine at The Goodwill for $1.00 and it was light pink, so I spray painted it high gloss black!)

10.  Painters tape (for the cord- I learned this the hard way! If you are going to change the color of your base you will want to tape off the cord completely, or you will get speckles of color on the cord)

I will be making another one soon that will be only leopard with red, no white showing. I love DIY projects, my only problem is I am usually doing so many at one time that some don’t get finished!
