Mike Quyen's look for "xquisite" I find very enjoyable. Mostly I'm taken by the use of safety pins to create the almost beehive or birds nest effect. And the cross on the collar gives it that kick of moody, Gothic depth. I can only imagine how long it took to create the piece. I've pinned safety pins to a jacket just at the collar before, and it took hours--but nothing close to the number it seems Mike used here. Well behaved dalmatian.
