#96 "Some Like It Hot!"

#96 April F. Bump of Binghamton, NY

“Some Like It Hot!”

Embellishments & Techniques: The whole bra was dyed with Rit dye and dried over two very large balloons! The entire cup sides and back were then decoupaged for stiffness. Fussy-cut firemen, cowboys and related objects added. You will notice that (because of the Mod Podge used) this bra even has a feel similar to a fireman’s coat.

Artist’s Statement: Because I wanted to draw attention to the fact that men are vulnerable to breast cancer too, I needed to think outside the box! (Or bra as it maybe!) Too many of us have a lot of family health history that includes breast cancer and lots of friends who are personally touched by it. To all of the cancer survivors, this is for you, for all of our friends, including my good friend and kindred spirit Becky Smith who is just starting her fight – we’re with you all the way!
