ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE PICTURE ABOVE? Holy Face! The neckline is all the way up under the chin, and EVEN the breasts of a MANNEQUIN look baggy. Bleh. People, I want to address an issue that's very near and dear to my heart. Now, I KNOW that all of you rennies (avid renaissance festival goers) are already aware of how to put on a corset or bodice. You pull it on, lace it, and then pull the neckline of your blouse down, as well as reaching in and pulling your breasts up into the best possible position. However, I think that there's some of you who are note quite familiar with all the adjusting that needs to go on in order for these to look fantastic. See below, for the proper way of wearing these.
Phew! It's like a ray of light and angels singing! Perky! Even on a stiff mannequin made of packaging tape, stuffing, and a lot of swearing (yes, I make my own mannequins. Do you really think there's a mannequin manufacturer out there that would make them this beautifully shaped? nah. I'm awesome.) All I did was pull that neckline down. The corsets should be tight enough that it will hold that neckline RIGHT where you put it. Now, paired with a good bra (see more previous post) and you're going to look absolutely seductive. Yes, I'm tell you to pull your dang blouses down! This is coming from a mormon conservative girl, so you KNOW that I MEAN IT! ;)
On another note, thanks tremendously to all of you who purchased on Black Friday. It was a huge success, and the first 15 sales (you know, the awesome ones who got 20% off coupons) all happened within the first 2 minutes after 6:00 (I felt REALLY bad for the lady who was all excited and hoping she had been one of the first 15, and she had just barely bought her corset at 8:30. Blast!) I only do sales like that about twice a year, because....well, when you're selling stuff that you made yourself for THAT cheap, you're not really making any money. You're just barely breaking even on the costs that it took to make all of that stuff. But, the cool thing is that both times I've had these sales, I've had TONS of people purchasing that are brand new to etsy, so they're not only being introduced to the magnificent world of corsets, BUT they're also joining the fantastic marketplace that etsy is. So, thank you again..and pull your blouses down.
