When life gives you lemons, give them to girls and let them draw boobs around them!
Didn’t like the word ‘boobs’? Are you making a weird face right now? Does it feels like a lemon?Most of us aren’t accustomed to hearing words like breasts, boobs, and vagina. Aren’t they our very own body parts, for god’s sake?
October is the Breast Cancer Awareness month and is also known as Pinkotober. To spread a word, last year, we decided to join hands with the Arch Academy of Design. How? Read below!
The name of our campaign is ‘Lemon Face’ – mocking those who make lemon-like faces when they hear the word ‘breast.’ These people must understand that unless they don’t speak about the lady-parts to their girls, they will never understand the medical conditions like breast cancer, cervical cancer, etc.
Priyanka and I went to the ARCH Academy and asked 30 participating students to pour out their willful knowledge of fashion and art using lemons as motifs!
After picking two lemons each, they began fixing it on their white sheets. They were guided to cut two holes right in the middle of the sheet, representing their breasts, big enough to fit in the two lemons.
All they were supposed to do now was to create a stylish bra/bralette/corset around these lemony-breasts using colors, ribbons, sequences, gota-patti, whatever you can lay hands on.
Priyanka announced in a thundering voice, “Now start already! You’ve got only 30 minutes.”
Priyanka, smiling wickedly, exclaimed, “Don’t you know every student needs a deadline? They can’t really function without that!”
Check out how creative these girls were:
Few decided to show stone-work,
while others used the glittering sequences in all colors.
Once they were done, we made them pose with the ‘breasts and bras,’ making lemon-faces. Enjoy the slide below to see their weird faces. In case you’re the one who often makes such faces in real life, I hope you get your message. Peace out.
