The fantastical world of Bobby Love

1
I've been a fan since I first saw photographs of Bobby Love's stunning costume designs! Images of his work fill several of my friends Facebook feeds, and I had to learn more about him! I hope you enjoy these photos, and his story, as much as I do! -- Jason

"Fantasy couture designer Bobby Love lives in a fantastical world populated by circus performers, artists and other worldly creatures. His whimsical fashion and costume designs featured here are influenced by legendary Art Deco master Erte, whom he names all his parrots after.

Born in Hong Kong, Bobby Love attended Chapman University at age 16 (youngest in his class), and went on to earn post graduate degrees in Business Administration and Psychology from USC. Through his first job working graveyard shift at a psychiatric hospital for 3 years, he learned to think quickly on his feet and handle unpredictable situations. The ability to empathize and be a good listener would be important skills he acquired.

Arriving in Hollywood at age 20, Bobby Love worked diligently and achieved a successful business career. However, he also knew he needed an outlet to express his artistic creativity. Bobby started his hobby of sketching fashion designs at age 14. This is a passion which led to him meeting many artists and performers, ultimately inspiring him to create the many fantastical fantasy couture wardrobe we see today.

Designing between 20 to 30 "suites" a year using only his free time on weekends, each "suite" represents a different fantasy/mythical theme and may include a coat, vest, matching pants, hat and accessories. Read the rest

Congressman requests approval to wear Aloha shirt on Fridays

house_hawaii-jpeg-0910f_e02e65d079473fb49c353f7a39292282.nbcnews-fp-1200-800

US Representative Mark Takai, a Democrat from Hawaii, formally requested that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan permit the wearing of Aloha shirts on the House floor on Fridays. The longstanding House dress code is "business attire." Aloha Friday has been a custom in Takai's native state since the 1960s.

"The Aloha shirt is a tangible symbol of the Aloha Spirit - it embraces diversity, inclusion and friendliness that pervades throughout the State of Hawaii," Takai wrote in his letter to Ryan. "Embracing the Aloha shirt will allow members to embrace the Aloha Spirit - something that Washington could use a little more of."
