The day has come...

Can you believe it? After two years of aching wrists, Pirates of the Caribbean marathons, late nights and hot cups of strong tea, the infamous corset is DONE.
In-fa-mous: having a reputation of the worst kind : notoriously evil

A grand total of 79 hand sewn eyelets...40 pieces of boning... I do still need to find lacing...and have some proper pictures taken.
Keep a weather eye on the horizon...

Costume Studies

I'm thinking about starting some costume studies on Elizabeth Swann's Wardrobe in the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. I would still finish my Robin Hood costume studies but break it up with some girly clothes so I don't get so burnt out on boys all the time. Even though their costumes are fun!
My starting goal is to do one costume study of each per month to give me some time to do research and see how it goes from there.
There's such a variety in Elizabeth's costumes I don't think I'll get bored!
I'm also going to try to organize the costume studies I've already done a bit better so they're all easier to find.
Also, what are some costumes you'd love to see studied? I would like to make a list of costumes you would like to learn more about and every now and then I'll pick one from the list to study.
I look forward to hearing your ideas!

Inkheart and Knitting

I can't stop watching Inkheart. I'm watching it for the third time in three days right now, it inspires me. I love the clothes, the sets, the's my cup of tea. :)
But I've been getting a ways on my Bella Swan mittens while I'm watching it! I'm almost half done with the second mitten! However, I'm babysitting a friend's kittens and they sure do make knitting a challenge what with keeping them from running off with a mitten or a ball of yarn, not to mention climbing curtains and drinking out of my glass. ;)
I'd post a picture of my progress but I don't have my camera with me at the moment. But my how good progress feels!
Pictures soon, I promise!

Finishing up...

I've decided to be good and finish some costume projects I've already started before starting new things...among the list is my Elizabeth Swann corset. Yes, I STILL haven't finished it. But it is so close to being done! So I'm going to try to finish it up along with a couple other projects I've been working on.
One thing I've learned from making this corset so far, I never want to do a corset by hand again. (I say that know how I am)
Also, that even after looking at this corset for so many hours...(days, months, years) I still love it. :)
Hopefully I'll have some corset updates along with some other project news in the next few weeks. :)
PS: To those of you who asked about the yellow dress in my last post, it's from the movie Eragon. Isn't it lovely?

In the mood....

To do some costuming....

But I have no idea where to start...


Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
