Show pictures!!

Here are some photos from the show, more is coming. The third corset is up for sale. I'm asking $145 OBO, measures 30.5", 23.5", 32.5" closed. I need to keep the other two for now since I'm using them for a photo shoot at the end of next month. I might be doing another show in April, but I'm not sure yet. Eventually I will put the other two up for sale. Enjoy!

Crazyness

sooo tired...excuse my weird sentences. The next two weeks are stressful!! Not that I wasn't already freaking out O_O Still don't have all the models measurements! Getting ready for the show with four corsets to make and I have been helping plan my friends b-day party for this Saturday. That is going to be so much fun! We are doing a Alice and Wonderland theme and I wanted to go as a flamingo, but my corset might not be done so need to find a plan B. I guess I could wear my old corset, but I'm not to thrilled about it. Computer is still not fixed. I could really care less right now. Currently I'm on the laptop that I forgot we had. Also old, didn't even have Windows XP SP 2 so I had to upgrade it and install anti-virus and all that to make sure it was clean. I'm also having a problem with Adobe Reader, want to read some Twilight stuff and it won't open!!!! I go and upgrade it, but nothing happens.

Oh and I'm trying to pick a business name before the show on the 7th. I don't know what to pick!! Maybe I should stick with Midnight Affair Designs. I wanted Delicious Curves Corsetry, but there is another that is called Delicious Corsets. It just sounds nice. I like Duchess/e Corsets/Designs, Forbidden Ties Corsetry, or something with lure or lured in it cause it is the exact definition of what I want to come across in the designs. Help!!




blahh.. need to get these contacts out. >_

My new years gift

omg........ I have five or so trojans in my computer.....and not the hot warrior kind. All my files are safe and I hate computers. What kind of people create these viruses? Cause really they are just turning the world into an ugly and crule place. Thank the stars that I have the internet on my new phone :) Basterds.......

The new year

Happy New Year everyone! ^_^


Didn't do much last night, just went to see Twilight again. I'm reading the first book right now and it is GOOD! I kind of hate/love a good book, because I can't stop reading it and I can't stop reading it. lol Must read but I have other things that need to get done. I will survive!!

I'm also excited that my corsets will be in a fashion show! It's in February, so I have some time to sew, thankfully. I told them that I could do about three, plus I have to make myself a new one to wear there too, of course.

I upgraded my phone! I was in dire need of a touch screen phone, couldn't take the small screen on mine anymore. Got the LG Dare, nice and simple, just want I wanted. Those others are way to complicated for me.


Well, off to work then!

On a good day.....

The last two days were crazy fun. Wednesday night we went to the Sarah Brightman concert! It was fantastic! Her outfits, I want all of them! She's so cute, all of her shoes were platform! True diva, lol. I would love to be her stylist and create dresses for her videos and concerts. I didn't take the camera, cause I thought we couldn't take pictures, but I just might buy the DVD later. In another life I would of been an opera singer ^_^ I hope she does another world tour and comes back here. oh and she sang the Phantom of the Opera song and everyone was going crazy. I love that kind of atmosphere, where everyone is in the same moment caught up in the fantasy world created by the show and Sarah's angelic voice. ^_^


The next day was Selma's graduation!!! It was so exciting! My girl is all grown up and a college grad ::sniff:: Congratulations girl! After we all went out to dinner and had a blast. Didn't want it to end, but they were kind of throwing us out, lol.

Today was work :P The weekend, the three of us are staying at the house in Capitola for two nights. It's going to be cold!! Three blocks from the beach, brrrr. Party time!


Have a great Holiday everyone!!!!!!

Breathe

I am so sick of being poor!!! AAHHHHHHH!! I know I need to find a better job, it's not going to be easy. Plus I find myself lost in what I really want to do in life. There are so many things that interest me and it is hard to find a path. I know I need to get out of here for anything to happen. Sometimes I feel that I have not accomplished anything. But I'm being hard on myself and need to fight for what I want in life and keep pushing. Some days I panic because I feel like there is no way out and I'm going to be stuck like this. A constant feeling of 'what am I going to do?!' and will it get any better. I know I need to be strong and that it WILL pass.

One thing that I do want to keep working on is my corset business. I really want it to grow and thrive. That is one of my main goals.

::sigh:: Anyway............

I'm soo excited my friend is graduating from college!! Next Thursday! YAY! So proud of her! We are like sisters and it is such a fantasic time!

I just bought these shoes! Perfect for 18th century. I need a little style to my shoes, even if they are not 100% accurate.

Stays

Winter

Sooo I finally finish the dress and I forgot to take pictures of it. Can't belive it. I was in such a hurry to send it off. Well maybe she will send me one of her in it. Oh well...


Since that is done, I am starting a new 18th century pair of stays. I'm working on the mock-up right now. The first ones I made are ok, but they can be improved; neckline is off and the back is too high, among other things. After those are done I can start on the 1780s cotton sheath dress. The cotton voile fabric for it came in last week. It's ok, not what I expected, but I'll make it work! What was a nice little surprise is that it has a cream stripe on the salvages and some edging detail. I can cut part of it off for the neck ruffle and maybe cuffs.

Blood Lust

I'm so happy I finally bought a serger! YAY! I will have nice seams now! lol Need to go get thread for it tomorrow so I can finish this dress I'm currently working on for a client. I'll post pics of it when it's done.

Last night my friend and I saw Twilight. Very good! We're going to see it again this week. ^_^ I have a feeling that the movie is better than the book or at least for me more worth it to see the movie than read the book. I wonder if they are going to make two more movies, cause there are three books. It was also very interesting to see the different characteristics her(the author) vampires have. They can go out during the day but have to say out of the sunlight, cause their skin reacts to it that would give them away. Their skin sparkles like diamonds(very cool!!). They don't seem to have any type of fangs, or even extend out when they become aroused. I'm thinking the whole time, why don't they try feeding from their own kind, so they don't need to survive on human or animal blood. The series I read (and live for), The Black Dagger Brotherhood, they feed from their own race because human blood is too weak for them. Problem solved! But I guess that is the drama/conflict, to love a human and can't control yourself to not drink their blood. Read The Black Dagger Brotherhood, it is soooooo good!! And these are not your regular vampires. ^_~
