K&M with Jewelry from A&M; Batik Shirt

K&M with Jewelry from A&M; Batik Shirt

on the way in the car in Jakarta

In this photo we were on the way to the airport to send me back home. I had been in Indonesia for 2 1/2 weeks.

Kesia is wearing the earings and necklace send by A&M from Mexico (Araceli and Miguel, comoperrosygatos). So I wanted to be sure to post this photo so they could see the gift that they sent

Regarding the Batik fabric of the shirt I'm wearing:

Batik (pronunciation: [?ba.te?], but often, in English, is [?b?.t?k] or [b??ti?k]) is a wax-resist dyeing technique used on textile. Batik is found in several countries of West Africa, such as Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon and Mali, and in Asia, such as India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Iran, the Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand.

However, it is in Indonesia that it is considered a national art form.


Although the word's origin is Javanese, its etymology may be either from the Javanese amba ('to write') and titik ('dot' or 'point'), or constructed from a hypothetical Proto-Austronesian root *beCik, meaning 'to tattoo' from the use of a needle in the process. The word is first recorded in English in the Encyclop?dia Britannica of 1880, in which it is spelt battik. It is attested in Indonesian Archipelago of the Dutch colonial period in the various forms mbatek, mbatik, batek and batik.[1][2][3]

Batik has been both an art and a craft for centuries. In Java, Indonesia, batik is part of an ancient tradition, and some of the finest batik cloth in the world is still made there.
Contemporary batik, while owing much to the past, is markedly different from the more traditional and formal styles. For example, the artist may use etching, discharge dyeing, stencils, different tools for waxing and dyeing, wax recipes with different resist values and work with silk, cotton, wool, leather, paper or even wood and ceramics.

Melted wax (Javanese: malam) is applied to cloth before being dipped in dye. It is common for people to use a mixture of beeswax and paraffin wax. The beeswax will hold to the fabric and the paraffin wax will allow cracking, which is a characteristic of batik. Wherever the wax has seeped through the fabric, the dye will not penetrate. Sometimes several colours are used, with a series of dyeing, drying and waxing steps.
Thin wax lines are made with a canting needle (or a tjanting tool), a wooden handled tool with a tiny metal cup with a tiny spout, out of which the wax seeps. Other methods of applying the wax onto the fabric include pouring the liquid wax, painting the wax on with a brush, and applying the hot wax to precarved wooden or metal wire block and stamping the fabric.

After the last dyeing, the fabric is hung up to dry. Then it is dipped in a solvent to dissolve the wax, or ironed between paper towels or newspapers to absorb the wax and reveal the deep rich colors and the fine crinkle lines that give batik its character. This traditional method of batik making is called Batik Tulis (lit: Written Batik).
The invention of the copper block or cap developed by the Javanese in the 20th century revolutionised batik production. It became possible to make high quality designs and intricate patterns much faster than one could possibly do by hand-painting. This method of using copper block to applied melted wax patern is called Batik Cap (pronounced like "chop").
Indonesian batik used for clothing normally has an intricate pattern. Traditionally, wider curves were reserved for batik produced for nobles. The traditional cloth has natural colors (tones of indigo and brown) while contemporary pieces have more variety of color.
Javanese batik typically includes symbols. Some pieces may be mystic-influenced, but very rarely used for clothing. Some may carry illustrations of animals or an other intricate things.

Dress Diary - Day 29 - Rock it!

Dress Diary - Day 29 - Rock it!

You often see these lovely before and after shots where a handsome but rather rugged guy is transformed into a gorgeous, sultry woman. For most males this is a rather exhilarating, short-lived and rare experience. And I suppose the majority would rather keep it that way outside of a purely fantasy setting.

As it happens, we got free tickets to a rather cheesy rock musical from a friend who works in the theatre. So I thought: "Hey, just let's live up to the occasion and try to pass as a rock guy just for the evening!" Actually, to be honest, I probably just wanted to make the very geeky point of wearing a nerdy sunn o))) T-shirt to a performance full of utterly cheesy rock anthems ;-)

Anyway, there you have it - The magical transformation from the demure turn of the century home-maker to the unkempt and disheveled drone-doom fan. Funnily enough I quite like both photos, but in completely different ways. I am quite happy with my Ok-haired pleasant self in the rather flattering photo on the left and I am quite amused that I at least somewhat managed to bring the "rock bloke" to life a bit in the right shot without getting into the territory of total travesty.

It did however actually feel quite weird to be dressed like this. My body and mind didn't quite seem to really acknowledge the temporary freedom of expression and movement so I was probably not entirely convincing in motion and the unusual feeling of unexpected freedom I somehow had expected actually didn't quite happen. In fact I did feel a bit fragile and lacking in confidence without my usual attire. It's as if the long months of learning to not struggle against the strictures of Belle Epoque fashion has led to me internalising its limitations in such a way that they are inherent in myself and remain largely intact even without the external trappings that necessitated them and the lack of these trappings creates a sense of insecurity in me rather than the feeling of freedom one would expect.

Anyway, I did somehow survive the lack of steel boned support, had quite a good time and a rather exciting little cross-dressing adventure. Admittedly though both in the case of the musical and in the case of my "fancy" attire, I can't really see me doing this very often unless I have to. It was a rather exhilarating, short-lived and rare experience for me but I would rather keep it that way - outside of a purely fantasy setting of course ;-)
