  • Nora Rickey updated the Artwork Double Header
    Dyed by Tim Travers and me. Image drawn by Tim, embellished and embroidered by me. I took one of Tim's drawings of a two-headed cat and tried out several new composite band stitches to create the outlines of the cat. Putting flowers in the cats stomach reminds me of creation myths or of every creature's inherent connection to nature.  We have twelve pairs of underwear as part of an ongoing collaboration. Tim was stung by a mosquito at age two and the following illness has made him physical d…
  • Nora Rickey updated the Artwork Valentine
    The finished product from my dyeing video. I mixed red dye and beet juice to make the fake blood and this is the result of that mixture.  In the second image, I replaced Mike Pence's mouth with a beautiful bullion rose, resembling a butthole.  I found out that my Trump-supporting uncle saw this image and said he was "disappointed" in me. Upon hearing this, I felt elated and motivated to create more challenging pieces.

  • Nora Rickey updated the Artwork Venus in Retrograde
    I made this pair for an ex who is a tap dancer. He broke up with me during the time when Venus was in retrograde, right before I could gift them to him. It felt fitting to title this pair after that solar cycle.
  • Nora Rickey updated the Artwork VPMP U BMFA
    Underwear and concept by me. Fake blood squirter by Jac Pau. Song by Martha Wainwright.   I again was inspired by the woman who calls Mike Pence's office every day with details of her period. Feeling so depressed after the election, I was able to get out some of my anger by imagining I was stabbing Pence with a million needle stitches. I hope that women will find similar catharsis by wearing these during their periods.

  • Nora Rickey updated the Artwork Eat My Seaweed
    Made for a Phish loving lady. I began first with her love of the band and it's psychedilic vibes. Then I researched different rainbow fish and created my own species inspired by these images. At several moments in the creation I had to rip out my stitches because I was not satisfied by the color schemes. I decided that if my whole scene was rainbow colored, that my fish did not have to be. During the creation, a coworker sneered at my piece and called it "vile" because of my text and seaweed. I …
  • Nora Rickey updated the Artwork Nasty
    I made this for my politically active friend to wear while she is working as a tax journalist in DC. When I made them, I had been inspired by the story of a woman calling Mike Pence daily to discuss details of her period. I decided to get very literal with this panty's nasty bush, zooming in on what I imagine blood cells to look like.
  • Nora Rickey updated the Artwork Heinous Hanes
    The pair that started it all. I made this for my best friend to wear on New Years Eve. A combination of sequins and French knots.
