Preview of some of the OOAK outfits I'm taking to convention in Orlando!

The past few days have been so hectic as i prepare for my flight tomorrow, but i am super excited to see everyone! I think everything on my checklist is done, just gotta pack!  I wish I'd had more time to make more outfits, but I will have oodles of pillows, treats, and handbags so if you are attending be sure to stop by my room sales!

Sneak Peek photo of convention goodies!

Happy Friday everyone! Here is a sneak peek of some of the bags I've created for convention that will be part of 10 OOAK outfits.  I was hoping to have more but with my upcoming move, time has slipped away from me and convention time is almost here! I'm very excited to see old friends again and spend time away from Texas- if even for a few days.  The condo officially sold and we must be out of here by Oct 31 so I'll come back to moving boxes and an empty condo but I'm excited because I'll be returning to school in the spring!  I've decided to complete my Fashion Design degree but take Costume Design classes as well. I'm so very excited for the future!

Blade Runner #6 & #7

Happy Saturday!  I am finally catching up around here with the renovations winding down.  I'm happy to share photos of Blade Runner #6 and #7 which were both commissioned privately.  BR #6 is another golden cage dress but this time it's open with no mesh underneath.  It includes a black underbust corset dress, gold sequin bra top with choker, and sequin capelet.  BR #7 includes a top made of mesh and cream ultrasuede and skirt of cream silk, mesh and ultrasuede. I also made a bolero with pleated ribbon and a necklace with silver and gold chains, rhinestones and crystal pendants.  

I will be busy getting inventory ready for convention in September so I won't be taking too many commissions at this time but stay tuned for updates of new items coming!
