I've got a fanpage on facebook now - you can buy some of my clothes there because I need to clean up a bit - just have a look, leave me some likes (there will be a giveaway as soon as my page reaches a certain number of likes) and see my latest stuff there:
nearly two years have passed since I was here the last time.
Just a lack of time and the need to stay a little more on my ownkept me away from here and I even stayed away from a lot of real life events as well.
But - I finished fashion school in the mean time, I am a professional tailor and designer now and prod to have graduated with the best marks of my year
- but on the other side I have to delay my plans on making my own business, after school, things went a little different than expected. But that's life.
Of course, I was working on new clothes in the mean time. Although I have to admit that I needed a break from big dresses and historical gowns. And I still do - not that I give them up completely, but at the moment I need a slight change.
Main thing is that it became a little too one-sided for me, especially the fact how people see oneself. For example, I spent this years WGT entirely in men's clothes and I got rid of my very long hair. It felt good to do both and it was interesting to see how people reacted, because many only knew me with my white make-up and the big skirts, and they where quite surprised to see me in a top hat and tailcoat, because they just didn't know that I am wearing men's clothes (mainly as every day clothes) for more than 20 years now - but I hardly had pictures of that
There are a few other reasons why I leave the big skirts in my wardrobe at the moment, and most of my projects have been sort of every day stuff, and some evening wear, based on victorian men's fashion.
Just have a look, I will upload pictures since I had a few shootings in the meantime as well
A lot of my recent work was inspired by Doctor Who, I've started working on a buste dress, inspired by the first Doctor's victorian suit (well, yes, again a big gown
- but I stopped working on it at the moment until I've got some spare time for it) - I made a re-design of the classic Time Lord gowns and finished a test dress some time ago. I made a coat, inspired by Captain Jack Harkness' one and started knitting again to get a ridiculous long skarf (there's a special story behind it which includes - of course - quite a lot Doctor Who, but also a funny coincidence . just wait for the picture, I will tell it there) ... and much more.
New elaborate clothes are in planning state at the moment, but it will be a lot more androgynous that before because I feel a lot more comfortable with that - so keep watching
And - I want to thank everyone who still stayed here although I was away for such a long time. I don't know if I will be here as regularly as before, but I try
