Here at Sourpuss we are always on the look out for amazing and unique things to bring to our customers! Blogger and crafter extraordinaire Midge Blitz is no exception! When we spotted her spectacularly spooky and riot grrl worthy handmade wares, we couldn't help but snatch some up. I recently took some time to chat with Midge to find out more about her Modern Girl Blitz!!
If you had to pick one outfit to wear for the rest of your life what would it be?
My polka dot mini skirt, striped shirt and some really bright color tights with some ankle boots. That's my formula, I'll always be comfortable in that look. And my glasses!
Name a movie that defined your adolescence?
Can I name two? I would say it's a tie between Ghost World and But I'm a Cheerleader. I saw myself (and still do) a lot in Enid from Ghost World, with her humorously cynical outlook on her surroundings and love for things kitschy and weird. I find my inner Enid whenever I'm scouring thrift stores for something unique and outrageous. And the aesthetics from But I'm a Cheerleader kind of defined my whole tween riot grrrl pink cat eye glasses wearing identity, which is a look I'm fully perfecting and embracing now, in my mid 20's. It's also an excellent movie.
What inspires you most?
Feminism, riot grrrl, coffee, cut and paste zines (or xerox machine art/collages), John Waters, coffee, music from the late 70's and early/mid 90's, especially Sleater Kinney and Joan Jett, and confetti. And coffee!
What do you do when you aren't making awesome things for your etsy shop?
Going on coffee dates and window shopping with friends, veg out and watch stupid tv shows when I'm alone, thinking of new zines to make. I've recently taken up roller skating so I can try out for roller derby hopefully in the near future! First I desperately need some training, haha!
