Well, there went a couple weeks of silence.
Time got away from me, lots of orders in, lots of hours at the part time gig, lots of excuses and forgetting.
I’ve been working on a LOT of really fun costumes and outfits, and I wish I’d thought to, oh, I don’t know, take pictures of it all. Alas, while I have a few to share, they don’t represent even the scantest of hints of what I’ve been doing.
So, without further ado:
A couple of my cincher skirts made their way to the NOLA Red Dress Run:
I finally finished the Doctor Who-inspired Victorian costume, inspired by this:
My version (which, in total honesty? I wanted to keep so bad–that jacket is really lovely, despite it looking rather lumpy on my broken-and-too-small-dress-form):
I even made the decorative frogs–which was a learning experience in itself, trust me:
A dress for a friend, who will be wearing it out this weekend to a concert:
Bunches of other items were made (Alice dresses, Wendy dresses, cincher skirts, leggings, collars….):
One customer requested pink and orange leggings–an excuse for me to order extra and (eventually) make some for the shop:
Some knitting was done in the evenings (as I decompressed and watched terrible old movies):
I found some AMAZING fabric that I’m WAY too excited about….and totally want to make halter dresses out of, for some reason:
I have a lot of stock that needs to be photographed and listed, but finding the time to do so has been a bit difficult:
Today I’m working on another Doctor Who-inspired piece (though this one from Tennant’s era):
And I’m starting to get ready for the Halloween rush–getting prepared, getting organized, getting supplies.
Getting ideas together for a Halloween shoot that I’m pretty excited about….
And…..tossing around the idea of doing a runway show in October–Halloween focused, of course. Because I’m insane and apparently intend to remain so.
