My favorite corset!

It's one of the first corsets I ever bought - and it's one of a kind b/c I bought the silver (stretch denim!) fabric and had it made just for me!
 
A real tight lacing corset is a wonderful thing - I feel MOST feminine when I'm wearing one.
I don't wear them too often b/c I avoid wearing them when I know I'll be dancing or eating.
 







For me, the hardest part of finding the perfect corset is getting a flattering length and shape - I'm just shy of 5' 4" so a lot of corsets don't fit my figure properly.
Honestly - I even hate the fit of the wedding corset I had custom made. I was in tears when it finally arrived (weeks late) and I had no time to get something better! I've never worn it again and I should just sell it off b/c whenever I look at it I feel cheated!
 
I do think it's time for me to buy the next corset for my collection! But I insist on trying them on in person - no online corset shopping for me!
 
Do you have a favorite corset? Where did you get it?

Awesome art and awesome books !


I just bought this custom artwork from bandeau on fiverr
for a mere $15. You can get a chibi for $5 - add color for another $5 and add another person for $5 more.

Hopefully Industrial Ken doesn't check out my blog before I make a card w/ the image for him. : )

Not only is this fantastic artist a fantastic artist - she also writes fantastic novels!
I've read the first two in her trilogy Corporeal Daughters (which are now available as a complete e-book set for $8 !) and LOVED THEM! 

This series is a different unique twist on a vampire novel. I really enjoyed her fresh ideas about the magics and powers of vampires and other superhumans. There is also a good love story in there but not a silly bodice ripper romance or anything lame like that. I am not great at reviewing things but I wanted to share something I like with those of you who might like it too!

The first e-book is a mere $3 on Amazon if you want something Urban Fantasy to read that I highly recommend! Corporeal Daughters - Family Ties

ENJOY!

My Halloween Quilt is FINISHED!

Hello friends!
 
I'm super excited because I made my very first quilt! I took a sewing class and had a vision and a whole stockpile of fabric - plus some help from Industrial Ken - and two months later - TA DA!
 




I even have cool fabric on the flip side, so it's reversible!
