The Space Lady And Son - Kids

The Space Lady And Son

“This is me and my Mom performing on the streets of San Francisco, circa 1994. As you can tell from this pic, I’ve been blessed with impeccable fashion sense my whole life:
✓ Cosby Sweater (before it was creepy)

✓ Knit Elf Stocking Hat

✓ Granny Glasses

✓ Star Trek Keychain Clipped To Belt Loop

Also for anyone curious, my mom is “The Space Lady,” a famous* street musican and “outsider icon.” Her Greatest Hits album was originally released on hand-made cassette tapes back in the 80’s. It was re-released by an actual record label a couple years ago and was named in Vice Magazine’s 50 Best Albums of 2014 and NME’s “101 Albums to Hear Before You Die”

*by street musican standards, anyway.”

“I don’t know what this pose is all about. It looks like our backs hurt or we are all going to puke in the next 10 seconds. All my friends say it looks like an advert for a family-TV-Show in the early 90s. I think the photo is from 2001.”

“This is my Googoo (grandmother) in 1980 debuting the spider costume she made. Everyone in our family has gotten to wear this in at some point in our lives (either by choice or a very strong recommendation from the designer).”

“My mother’s story is all I have to go by on this one. She claims to have been blindsided by a small, local modeling agency photo shoot with their own idea of props to benefit my budding modeling career. Needless to say this was my first and last photo shoot.”
