OOAK Couture: Chris Stoeckel, Pt. 1
Within a few months, there will be no new Gene Marshall outfits to purchase. Once the Convention in Philadelphia is over, it will signal the end of the line for anymore official Mel Odom ensembles for our favorite Fashion Doll Icon. Eventually, Gene and her friends will get bored wearing the same tired outfits over and over again, but what else can she do? Fear not, Gene admirers! There are a number of very talented designers out there who will keep the dream alive. One such talented person is Chris Stoeckel. Today’s post (and a number of future ones) will feature his fantastic creations. They fit Gene like a glove—both physically and visually, capturing the eras that Gene stepped out of. While some “ooak” designs I see look like something from a bad craft sale, Chris’ truly shine. See for yourself!
