cubs in cows?

bonjour

imagine an endless supply of cool hats, all different colours, sizes, designs...

that's what fanatics is. they inspired me to create two different looks, i wanted to use one of their mlb hats.

soo.... at first i didn't know how to approach this, i'm not sporty at all, i have no knowledge what so ever about american football or soccer. so i just went with my gut.

i picked this beauty:

who wouldn't though, it's a cow with glasses on!

i want to have it...

ok anyway, as you can see you have to be quite brave and confident to pull that of, but i think i did a pretty good job.

here are my two looks:



you have to say that they are pretty sweet



i would wear these, definitely, and everybody should own a weird hat!
hipster cow? yes please!

if you want to get a hat for yourself hit up http://www.fanatics.com/. they have loads, you can find something, even if you're not into sports at all!

cheers,

love,

hi!

it's on time! 
 i love this design. 
after thinking, maybe it's not the best for a sock,
but imagine a t-shirt or a tank top with
that watch.

 it's just vibes man...

 i couldn't really find a cool holiday 
for this day...
who do i call if i want a new holiday?
socks day?

 for all you adventurers out there.
i don't really like hiking 
but mountain views do this thing to me,
i just can't look away.

 let's say it's more inspired by this.
and it's not even a flower but i feel like christmas would
not be the same without them.
very elegant, i want one.

 yes, i am aware that the gingerbread man 
looks like he's possessed, that was the point.

emojis attack!

hope you enjoy, next week is going to be socks-watercolour edition.

oh, yeah.. btw i'm in london!
textile art course.

love,

week 13 and 14

hello lovely people

i'm so sorry for being so late with this post but the semester here is ending and i've got a crap load of work for school.
but let's find time for socks. it's always a good time for socks.

 you have a neanderthal peeking out from your shoe!

 a parfait is a parfait way to start your day.
i have this cool bistro near my house and sometimes 
i go there for weekend breakfast there,
they have the best granola and french toast.

 the cake is not a lie today

i didn't know how to freaking draw the
weird feeling you get when you sit on your leg too long.
so here is literal pins and needles.

 i love those!
and i love corn so that's great too :]

 so relevant, i know, but i like envelopes.

 barbados's flags for your feet!

 apples that look like dots,
dots that look like apples.

 i guess i'm doing a series within a series.
there is just a lot of countries,
a lot of flags and a lot of independence days.

yes, i am aware that they look a bit like
scales but just think about it.
they naturally look like that.

the best day.
suggestion, they should be fluffy.

sneaky ninja from your shoe.
it will protect you cankles.

 a santa sock for yourself. with a detachable pom-pom.
it's the type you can walk in and don't slide.
and the santa is basically for yourself cause
you should treat yourself over christmas. 

lovely, i like cotton candy.
of course the idea of it is much better,
sticky sugar stuff all over your face, hands
and stuck to the roof of your mouth.
but still, you can't have a fair
without it.

i hope your head didn't explode from my amazing art.

enjoy your week, the socks are back on track.

love,

qofr

week 12

hola,

socks are back

 something that unites us all right?

 first thing i thought about was that scene from the first
sherlock holmes film with rdj. 
fire!

 it's a very simple one and i think that sells it.
i think a whole series of very simple flags
would be very cool and suspiciously patriotic,
at least to my taste.

 fudge season is coming and it's great.
i think i'm going to make some this year,
maybe peanut butter? ;]

 a simple design, a simple message.
different colours available!!
(yes i am aware of the typo)

 it turns out the albanian language is this whole big thing
since it's a mix between loads of european tongues.
i took all the letters different from the english
alphabet. if you have some time to spare 
go look up this part of history.

and finally my favourite part of math.
fibonacci sequence is fascinating.
it goes like this 1,1,2,3,5,8,11 and so on,
the idea is that you add the two previous ones to get the next one.
funny thing, it applies to everything in nature. check the petals,
leaves, or even the times you sneeze at one time.
works every time pretty much.

i feel like this week was a bit more educational than usual. 
next week we're going back to ridiculousness.

enjoy,

love,

week 11

hi,

sorry for being late, i had a crazy weekend.

 i didn't even know there is a wonderful holiday
like that. cookie monster is one of my favourite
characters ever so here is my tribute to this
loveable blu creature!

 i have this kid in my class, he loves origami, even does his
own designs. i can pretty much do the crane and that's it.
as to the socks, i imagine the other one being blue, i don't know why.

 again celebrating a country's origin. and i like stripes,
especially if they mean something.

 i know, so original. but it's a nice uplifting design,
you would smile if you notice somebody wearing those ;)

 i hate fresh cucumbers but pickles are great.
so have a pickle on your foot.

basically a fridge day. what...
although, imagine waiting for that one day
just to clean out your refrigerator.

this is probably the best. when i was a little girl
i loved making tea parties with my dolls and teddy bears.
i still have my tiny sets of teacups and little plates.
add some colourful banners and it's an ideal!

sorry again, hope you enjoyed!

see you soon,

love,

qofr

10 lovelies

how popular do you have to be to have companies send you stuff?

cause you know, i wouldn't be mad if somebody did...
like socks? or... socks?

i could review them! and i promise i'll buy some for myself!

ok, the self portion of this post is over. i would like to thank you for visiting my blog.

i think there are about 10 people who actually view each and every post from the sockabrate series and for that i'm truly thankful. i'm putting my time into this and i'm glad somebody notices.

are you maybe considering commenting? i would love to talk to you, maybe you could give me some good and new ideas for my blog and future posts. maybe there is something that annoys you about the layout? i don't know...

i've been putting photos on my instagram a bit more often, some of my makeup looks are on there. since this blog has become a bit of everything not only fashion, maybe you would like some makeup related posts? like what i use, any recommendations or tutorials? just a suggestion.


on with my life,
homework is waiting, ugh

i hope to hear from you soon,

love,

qofr

week 10

hi!

here is the next portion of my beautiful creations

 how cool is that day!?

 self explanatory really, the flag sort of wraps around
the foot.

 a pretty shitty representation of
fireworks, enjoy!

 the red-yellow flag is the flag of swedish people living
in finland. the other one is obvs finland's flag.
apparently it's a very big thing there,
they have a whole list of holidays
and celebrations involving flags.

 eee... looks a tad bit weird 
but i love chocolate

 soo cliché and pretty much overdone.
and i'm crap at drawing anatomy
so just imagine the bones are there.

i used to be very into drawing maps
and designing perfect cities
so this is quite a cool day.
of course there could be some more things
but you know, it's a sock so there 
is only so much details
on them.

there you go, my notebook is getting full. there is only enough space for one week.
weird, i don't think i've ever finished a notebook so quick.

love,

qofr

you don't need fireworks to make a show

bonjour

has anybody seen the bjork extravaganza that is biophilia project?


i hope so, and if not you need to fix it right now. although not now exactly, cause the dvd of the london final concert is coming out later this month but at least listen to a few of my favourite tracks:



later on in the playlist there are some tracks from her previous albums, i just love them.

bjork makes a very alternative kind of sound. i've heard of her before, a few years ago she shook the icelandic and world wide music scene, but i never got the chance to listen to her actual tracks. 
my mum got us tickets for a retransmission of her live performance. i was very sceptical cause, come on, how good can a concert be if it's in a cinema? 

it was amazing


the production value was so good. the outfits were so good, the choir was so good, the special effects on the video were so good. so good.

i wish i could find some more photos from the actual performance but i guess they'll be available later.


but just look at this, the costumes are gorgeous. i already pre-ordered the dvd so there is probably going to be more on them.


ok, i don't know, i just wanted to show you my new obsession.

by the way, i was thinking of doing monthly favourites? yes, no?

till next time,

love

qofr
