Hello again dear friends and watchers!
I just wanted to let you know that I have added to my Photobucket collection; I had found a bunch of images on the German website <a href="[link]
>"Journal des Luxus und der Moden", and found the website terribly difficult to navigate, so I uploaded them into a Photobucket album to make them more accessible. I'm not claiming the rights to any of these images, but simply want more people to know about them because they're a great resource for 18th century fashions.
Now for the update; I've found another lovely collection on the LACMA website
and basically did the same; I've put them in their own respective folder. If you are as in love with 18th century fashions as I am, then you owe it to yourself to check out my album.

P.S. My tree-print cotton 1950s dress is almost finished!!! Stay tuned for more updates...

Thank you. Now on to less important stuff! loljk
I don't have much to update you guys on, honestly. I would like to thank all my loyal DeviantWatchers
and all the New watchers
too! Thanks so much for your support guys!
I really appreciate all your faves and the lovely comments you leave. Thank you so much!
I don't know if you've noticed/care, but I've added the Twitter app on my DA Profile page... so, myeah.
Mmmmm what else? I've been working on more 1950s dresses... I went to a vintage sale yesterday and bought soooooooooo many pretty things. I will post pictures, but most likely in my scraps.
Saturday I went on a Steampunk expedition with the local chapter of Steampunk enthusiasts, hence the reason for my recent Steampunk photos. I had asked ~chocomalk
if they wanted to come along, because I thought it would be really interesting to have photos from photographers with different styles. Everyone had a really great time, and I definitely want to do more of this. I had great plans for a brand new Steampunk costume, but after finishing my friend's wedding dress (still waiting for photos...
) I sorta needed a little break from sewing. I KNOW?! a BREAK, you say?! I know, it's absurd. Anyway, I had this great plush tiger print fabric in beige and dark chocolate brown that I wanted to use. I didn't have time to design a proper costume, and I didn't want to regret wasting the tiger stuff on something hasty, so I waited. I ended up using my 1886 walking skirt for the bottom half, an old leather bustier and I made a new Edwardian blouse in cotton, and the whole thing came out quite nice I think. Hopefully I will have more piccies for you soon darlings!
What else... oh yes! Some of the pictures of my steampunk costume will be available to use as stock images, in my stock account, so check in once in a while to see if they're there yet.
Ok guys, I think we're all sick of the pink journal skin. For the next month, I will be accepting entries for my contest for my new journal skin! Up for grabs:
a three-month subscription to DA! Criteria:
It must be made by you, especially for me, for this contest.
I would like it to have either a costume-ish theme, or 18th century theme.
I like old paper (like This guy's journal...
</i>) , old frames, lace, pretty things...
Date contest closes: December 16th, 2009
Keep in mind all the different sections I currently have in my journal, I would like to keep those, but feel free to get creative with the design!Questions?! ASK AWAY! Disclaimer: I might make up some more rules as we go along, or add details, so check back often!
Take care everybody! Until next time, huggles for all!
