New work

I just finished up with the measurement session for Molly Heartbreaker She is a model and dancer from RI. Her OMP profile is here. Both links are totally NSFW. The work is in exchange for pics for the site as well as being a walking billboard for CC at the Flea as well as other conventions. I feel like such a fashion pusher...come on just one little taste ;) It was a really good thing that I gave Scott over at BigHeadStudio a card *yay*

The design is coming together quite well. It's going to be an underbust in all black w/ pinstripes. The straps are going to be men's bracers connected with buttons. There will be fake flap pockets at the bottom to give the corset a suit jacket look. I'm still deciding if I want to make a flap and button over the busk for a real suit look or not. I could just run a line of fake buttons up the busk. I'm going to make a pencil skirt to go with, it will be cut on the bias to make the pinstripes slant upwards and give the skirt a bit of stretch. It will be slit up the right side all the way to the hip. I will also be making pinstriped pasties with a button on the nipple point so that it can button into the suspenders. Hopefully this will mean that the pasties do not need to be glued on. Molly has a big back tattoo of a succubus (NSFW) that I want to make sure that 'her' face is peeking out over the back of the corset.

Suit jackets are a pain in the ass. To do it correctly it would be twice as much work as a corset. It would be much easier to find one that fits you in the shoulders and then alter it to fit in the torso.

i worked the fetish flea market there for years - it worked really well to have a few models walking around the floor with cards, directing folks back to your table. is danny (leather by danny) still the vendor liason? he's fantastic - i used to rent studio space from him in charlestown. hope you have a ton of fun!

I'm not planning on a table right now. I have something else planned that should get me a lot more business.
