For Halloween I’m dressing as Elly Jackson from the pop-synth group La Roux. Elly wears a “neo cameo” necklace by Australian designer Sylvie Markovina, consisting of two layers of laser-cut acrylic on a brass chain. With a flick of my vector graphics muscles and access to a laser cutter, I made my own version to wear with my Piet Mondrian-inspired jacket from the video for Bulletproof (check back for a tutorial on that soon). You can download the .eps files from Thingiverse to make your own.
