Last embroidery art of 2020/First embroidery of 2021: Frog and Snail!

Embroidered snail by Suzanne Forbes Jan 2021I realized I had never embroidered a snail!

Time to remedy that! This just-finished snail embroidery art is my first textile arts piece of 2021. I really wanted to try using pearls and clear and opalescent beads for slime, the way legendary human body embroidery artist Sally Hewett uses them for body fluids.

Embroidered snail by Suzanne Forbes Jan 2021I think it’s a charming effect, not a patch on the power of the inspiration though.

Embroidered White's Tree Frog by Suzanne Forbes November 2020I had to keep this embroidered White’s Tree Frog under wraps for a while, as it was a commissioned birthday gift!

Cute Embroidered Whites Tree Frog in process by Suzanne Forbes Nov 2020You can see the process of making him is better documented than usual, as I was sending previews to the commissioner as I worked.

While Littlest Sweet Shop was making my big Rainbow Gay Trans Miniature Treats Party order, she sent me pictures of the process, and I enjoyed it so much I decided to do it myself!

 

“Let it Snow” beamed live from Tipsy Bear Berlin, with Lola Rose and Judy LaDivina!

Judy LaDivina at Tipsy Bear Let it Snow Jan 29 2021 by Suzanne ForbesHere’s beloved Drag Mama Judy LaDivina at Tipsy Bear Berlin !

She performed live for the “Let it Snow” special with Lola Rose!

It was my first time drawing wildly charming Miss Judy and I had such fun. She is so pragmatic, so wise, so funny. Check out this Taimi video to hear about her inspiring journey from Tel Aviv to Berlin’s drag scene and find out how drag saved her life!

Miss Judy has lots of other performances online. You will love them 🙂

Lola Rose for Let it Snow by Suzanne Forbes Dec 13 2020Lola Rose had so many incredible costume changes!

Each number had a different look and the wigs were flying. Lola Rose is one of my very favorite Berlin performers, and this show was a thrill.

Lola has two new livestreaming shows coming Feb 3 and 10th, from Tipsy Bear’s stage.

Lola’s 2nd annual Black His/Herstory (Theirstory) Month show will run two Wednesdays of February with ten performers altogether. Five performers each week with a variety of burlesque, drag, stand up, theatre, & singing. The lineup is fantastic!! Even if you can’t catch the show, you can contribute to the money pool here to support these Black performers during this hard time.
