2016 Halloween Roundup

It’s that wonderful time of year again, where all these darkly delightful things start appearing in stores, people all over start imagining something creepy and/or awesome to become for a while, and all good custom-costume seamstresses are attached to sewing machine via ball and chain!

Lol I had big plans to have my stock-room-full-of-pretty all ready to list in my store by now.  But life had other plans!  And no complaints – despite my temporary state of crazy, this is my absolute favorite time of year both in work and in play – I’d rather be crazy than idle.  :oD

In lieu of actual shop listings, I thought it might be worth it to at least post pictures of all the pretty outfits I have made and are ready to ship.  I’m going to post them by size, starting with the larger sizes since there are less of them.  Most of them are samples made for photoshoots, and thus are available at an awesome discount.  If I have the outfit posted for sale, I’ll link, but otherwise, feel free to contact me thru etsy or my store for a custom listing and/or more information.  If you refer to your look by the title and color – from the image caption, then I’ll know which one you mean.  I have a lot of outfits!

First, my sizing charts:

This is a Victorian Vixen style jacket made to test and tweak my pattern.  The model in the photos is 5’3″ – and the length works best for about 5’3-5’6″.  The hat is available too!

I also have one “Vintage Diva” skirt in stock in size XL: (SOLD)

And solid black satin corsets to match!

I don’t yet have photos of this – but I have one of my belted jackets in stock in size Large.  It’s burgundy and gold and black, and has a very steampunk look.

Also in stock in Large, Vintage Diva skirts in Black, Purple, Sapphire Blue, and Ivory.

I do intend to eventually stock L shrugs in every color – but all I’ve completed so far is black!  So this full “Vintage Diva” look is possible for immediate shipment:

And lace overlay/Satin corsets to match every color listed, and most likely one hat or fascinator in each color!  It makes a super cute Saloon-girl look.

Since several of my models fit this model, I occasionally make photoshoot samples in split sizing.

Everything she’s wearing is available – including the hat!  Photos by Europa Photography, Model is Jessica Anafia.

The “Vintage Beauty” look in the last photo is in stock in alternate colors also, including: BlackPurple, RedSapphire Blue, as well as the pictured Ivory.  Also a one-of-a-kind set in Navy Blue.  The navy/black lacy corset is more of a S/M which best fits busts 35.5-37 and waists 27-31.

— Size Small / Medium —
(`¯`•.,_.^._,.•`¯`)

These were the first skirts made from a new pattern – so although I intended to make them in size Small, the size they turned out was more Small/Medium.  They fit low hips from about 37-40 inches.  The plum top is still size small – but the leather outfit has sleeves which could be attached to a corset in your exact waist size – which means it can work for either a size small or Medium.

— Size Small —
(`¯`•.,_.^._,.•`¯`)

Most of my models wear a size small, and I wear a size small, so holy wow are there a lot of size small outfits in my stock closet!  So I’m doing just one gallery and no descriptions to save time!

Several of these sets are posted for sale in this section of my store.

I have just one outfit in size Extra Small, and I don’t have pictures of it!  It’s a shrug and skirt made from my standard “Vintage Diva” pattern, but with an awesome gothy twist – in place of the bows, there are these little leather buckles at sleeves, hips, and neck.  It’s made from a black satin jacquard fabric with a dragon pattern, and it’s trimmed in red lace.
