While reading the frou frou fashionista blog (a great source of lingerie inspiration,) I stumbled upon these! If anyone knows how much I love rabbits (I have a pet rabbit) you will understand that, although they are tacky, I need them in my life! You may be seeing them in a photo shoot in the near future....

starting to think about halloween....

I'm loving this rainy fall weather...all I want to do is go pumpkin picking and go on a haunted hayride! Halloween always sneaks up on me and I pretty much end up being a zombie every year (although I make a pretty good zombie,) but this year I'm going to plan out and make an awesome costume. I'm thinking along the lines of vampire bat?? Here is a picture of a bat cape that I made last year for my boyfriend's dog- it's velvet with floral lining and stitched with boning to hold the shape.

And here are some inspirational photos from last year's Harper’s Bazaar UK November ’09. The spread is titled "Mystery in the Moonlight" shot by Michaelangelo di Battista. It's like a nerdy horror dream come true!

Working On Some New Stuff

Sometimes when I'm working I like to document the fabrics that I use so that I don't forget what they looked like when they're gone. These are some shreds from my serger of two prints that I used to create Tailfeather Bloomers for a wholesale order for Azaleas in NYC.

And the first sample of many more things to come!
