One of the best things about owning a creative business is the variety of projects I get to work on. Normally I would be elbow deep in some piece of furniture overhaul or drumming up new twists on old decor. But this week, things are a little different. This project may take the cake of wackiest jobs for sure. Take a look:
A local ad agency asked me if I could design and create a chili pepper costume for an ad campaign that they’re working on. You know, something along the lines of the Fruit of the Loom guys. Having never sewn or constructed a foam-and-spandex anything before, I said “Sure! I’ll give it a shot.” I’m actually pretty pleased with it so far. Just a little nip and tuck on the bottom and this pepper will be smokin’. This could be my big break, people ; )
By the way, my husband (pictured) REALLY wants to be the guy in the ad. Look out Justin Timberlake — Bring it on down to chili-ville.
