Tinker Bell - is the inspiration for this playful short skirt.

Ultra Feminine Warrior – celebrating energy, creativity, sacred power of women. My collection of wearable art includes; garments, objects and accessories inspired from military armor such as gorgets, gauntlets and gaiters illuminated with technological fiber optic elements. Color pallet and materials used to create the line. Turquoise, spring green, yellow gold, mauve and deep taupe hand dyed silk garments embellished with ecru tulle, up cycled jewelry, beads and fiber optic glowby hair lights incorporated into the art wear. Eye makeup – a dramatic palette of hues extending beyond the eye creating a mask effect or feminine war paint. Hair – braids where possible to repeat the pattern of the garments. Song - Bulletproof - La Roux

This short and sassy, elastic waist skirt is 100% Light Bubbled Gauze Silk adorned with an ivory tulle embellishment embedded with fiber optic lights.

Tinker Bell - is the inspiration for this playful short skirt. Fairies can enable others to fly by sprinkling them with fairy dust, sometimes called "pixie dust". In the original stage productions, she was represented on stage by a darting light "

Tinker Bell (also known as Tinkerbell or Tink for short), is a fictional character from J. M. Barrie's 1904 play and 1911 novel Peter and Wendy.

Though sometimes ill-tempered[5] and vindictive (getting the Lost Boys to shoot arrows at Wendy),[6] at other times she is helpful and kind to Peter.

The extremes in her personality are explained in-story by the fact that a fairy's size prevents her from holding more than one feeling at a time, so when she is angry she has no counterbalancing compassion.

Kelly Reumann was a perfect as " Tinker Bell" as Ultra Feminine Warrior #3
Kelly is a recent graduate of Buffalo State College, Interior Design Dept. 2010. I met Kelly three years ago when she was a student in the Design Fiber One class I taught at Buffalo State College. A conscientious student who was eager to go above and beyond all class assignments we have kept in touch on face book. Without even trying on her garments until the morning of the show Kelly fit like a hand in glove into the clothing. Feminine yet strong, her size belies her strength I knew Kelly would be perfect for look #3 ;~)

Thank you for being a part of team ricerafferty for Runway 3.0 Kelly.

Congratulations on your graduation. Best Wishes for great success in your future endeavors
