i call it BLUE STEEL

I'm thinking this is it, I made it...finally there is a local celebrity rockin the glass moustache!

Meet Steven Parker.

Not only is he doing a fabulous job as a male model as evidenced by the above photo, but he is in film too! You absolutely should not miss 'One Kine Day,' and if you don't believe me then check out the trailer here. Steven Parker that mustache you're sporting around 1:51 minutes in is to die for! I might have to hit pause and make a whole new design based on it.

In the meantime though Kailua people should get very excited starting now. The glass moustache is available right here in town! Steve's family owns an amazing shop right on Hamakua Drive, Lanikai Home + Style. They have a fabulous collection of everything I want so please keep this in mind if you want to buy me presents. Oh and probably you might like it too :)

FYI, just updated my website with two other new galleries...
Ann Arbor Art Center Gallery Shop in Michigan and Pele Signatures in Waikiki.
Look out, world!

moustache ride with me...on a celebrity cruise!

This is from a few years back at Indigo in Chinatown...what a fun event!
Celebrity Cruise had hired me to blow glass at a private party to promote their Blow Glass at Sea program. We had so much fun! Can you tell?

That handsome man in the center gave the glass moustache some major competition! Thanks to Mabby McDiarmid and Debi Fontes for being some serious arm candy.
It's a framer!

a total gem

Jessie Bean Goodman, even your name is priceless!
I was just rummaging through my computer and came up with this beauty, that you sent me so many moons ago.

The purse strap, the finger tattoo, the amazing glass moustache monocle; there's a million ways to conjure up a stache. But this photo, while reminiscent of dreams of being incognito at family gatherings, reminds me of my very first moustache, discovered in a bout of silliness with my brother around the time that we would have been starting grade school.

The simple beauty of long hair and its possibilities are endless. One can even section off two chunks at the front of one's head, wrap them symmetrically along the edge of the face for a criss cross effect under the nose, secured in place by an extremely kissable pouted set of lips.
Because who wouldn't want to kiss someone with a moustache!

the fanny pack mafia

I got lucky enough to run into my baby girl Shelly OBrien the other night! And Talia! Wow, life is good. Anyways, Mardi Gras reminded me of another awesome street fair and I do believe this photo was from Halloween Chinatown Honolulu 2 years ago?

Doesn't Shelly make a fabulous artiste?
This was Shelly's second moustache, the first one met an untimely demise...I do recollect getting a new phone and receiving this the first text message from an unknown number that went a little something like this:
"Hola, mustache down! Something something about doing the worm at a party and a broken stache and new scars."
Needless to say I gave her a discount :)

And if you are just a random bystander and not Shelly, do know that the glass moustache is definitely made of glass and can break. I run all of the pieces I create through an annealing cycle in a kiln, which makes the pieces more durable, but accidents do happen. Not to worry! If you save the pieces, I can fix the stache for a minimal fee. And if you don't have the pieces, I will give you a discount on one that is brand spankin new.
