Goodness, a first post is always so intimidating! What to put?
Well, I just got an Artfire shop so that I can see how it compares to my Etsy shop. I just need to list some items in it! I'm also working on some new wire-wrapped crystals, so look for those in one or both shops (hopefully) sometime this week! Tomorrow, I'm going to take my existing inventory down to one of the local vintage shops - the owner was impressed by my wire-wrapped titanium aura crystal necklace, and told me to bring stuff for possible commission. Woot!
In other news, I'm getting ready for my first *paid* season as a performer at the Oklahoma Renaissance Faire in Muskogee. I'm so excited! I bought a gorgeous new bodice from Moresca online, but it won't get here until after the Media Weekend (next to last weekend in April), so I figured I'd make another bodice for that weekend. Never hurts to have two different bodices - options are good! I used an online custom corset pattern generator, modified it to be a 16th century bodice, and cut it out of cheap fabric. Well, the sides weren't long enough, nor was the bottom front, and i have a sneaking suspicion that the front needs to be wider and scoop-ier. (New word. Like it?) Tomorrow, I'm going to have my boyfriend help me make a duct tape dressmaker's dummy so I can alter this pattern correctly. Wish me luck!
