Edwardian Ball

I had a great time at Edwardian Ball!! The Topsy Turvy Design booth was gorgeous, and I had so much fun sharing it with Topsy Turvy, Sewmanity aka Manicorn, and Thomas Ogden. Plus, my cigarette girl costume was a hit and my tray came in handy selling hats on the road... err... around the vending hall.

I handed out a bazillion business cards, so if you're reading this because of one, Welcome and I'd love to hear from you!

Aura O'Brien Shoot

I'm so excited to share a few more photos. These are the first of many from a shoot by Aura O'Brien, a great photographer out of Marin County.

The old barn made my Cigarette Girl costume look right at home!

Luana Suicide

Remember how I teased you with a few pictures of half finished hats? Well here are a couple shots of the beautiful Luana modeling one of my fascinators in a shoot for Suicide Girls. I haven't gotten the name of the photographer yet and will post it as soon as I know.

Hats hats hats

I'm preparing to vend at Edwardian Ball, which is coming up fast on January 21-22. It will be so much fun, I really can't wait. A costume extravaganza, plus vending to boot! This is my first year attending, and I'll be vending with Topsy Turvy Design, at what is sure the be the most awesome booth there. Can't wait to show you!

In preparing for the Ball I'm making tons of hats at a lower price point, so people can wear them away! These little fascinators in a variety of colors and patterns will surely find some good homes. I'm in the process of arranging a photo shoot with a few of them, and after some great shots would love to also sell them on etsy.

Hat Madness!
Completely unrelated to costumes, my darling dog The Baron von Tito, lovingly called Tito, passed away while I was home for the holidays visiting my family. It was really unexpected and I'm amazed every day and the amount it hurts to have him gone. Please go hug your dog today; or bring a bag of dog food, some old towels, or your heart to an animal shelter.
