This is a collection of customized vintage clothing inspired by the poetry in Words Saved Lives. The collection's title, "Feasting on the Blood of Doubt + the Bones of Fear", is a line from the poem "Phoenix". This is also a mantra of sorts for the poet and creator of the collection meant as a reminder to live a life free of self-doubt and fear. The collection has been created by hand using vintage needle and thread, paint, brush and hand-made stencils. The collection seeks to inspire others to recycle, reduce and reuse wherever possible. This is slow-fashion and each vintage item took a considerable amount of time to create and customize. Hopefully, they become the wearer's favorite old item of clothing that they continue to personalize over the course of the life of the garment.
