Today is the last official Day of our 13 Days of Halloween Celebration....I'm pretty darn sure that it ended up being more than 13 days, AND more than 13 costumes.
Today, we have custom fit sets from the Wizard of Oz! These will also be available as ready-to-ship pieces in a lot of sizes after October 10th. I just HAVE to get our next festival over with before I start spending all of my time producing items for our online stores.
Yes! Best Fabric ever!!!
Before I close, I just want to IMPLORE you to take a moment and think differently about yourself. I work with women every single day of my life that are so beaten down about their bodies that they don't even want to TRY to feel good. One of the main reasons I got into this business is because I felt like I could slowly start to change the female default mindset, one depressed customer at a time. You guys should see all of them women I meet and all of the emails I get where women say things like, "I'm fat, so you're going to have to make me something huge." or MUCH worse things than that. With every breath, they put themselves down and their insecurities practically blast out of them. I get it......I do. I say foolhardy deplorable things about myself, and then I'll hear my lean little 6 year old daughter ask me if she has a flat tummy today. AAAAAhhhh. I HAVE to work on changing myself, and I MUST help other women change their hearts and minds.
If you haven't purchased a corset from me, I just want you to know that it's not NEEDFUL to buy something just to make yourself feel better, BUT corsets ARE empowering. There has only been a tiny handful of women that were soooo beyond help that they would put one on and STILL NOT feel pretty, but I would say that 99% of you can lace yourself into one of these things and your whole countenance will change. You strand straight and tall (because you have no choice there!) and you become unstoppable. When I'm at festivals, I have ladies come into the booth as the worst version of themselves and emerge as a fiery phoenix super-charged version!
If you're still thinking of purchasing some drab little polyester nightmare for Halloween, PLEASE, I beg of you, don't walk further down that road of self-loathing. You are worth more than that, and I want to see you shine. For the SAME price as one of those hideous things, you can grab a simple corset from us, and then go to a thrift store and pick out CRAZY things to go with it, and you'll look and feel so sensational that you'll stop people dead in their tracks.
I've taken about 8 YEARS to change my brain. Corsets have helped encourage me to be proud of my womanly shape, lose 50 pounds (ooh...actually maybe 60. Originally, I weighed 210, and I'm 5'5") build my company to be bigger and better, reach out to other women, and diversify my skills, my ideas, my empathy, my everything! I can't be intimidated, shut down, or put down while I'm wearing a corset! We have had the most HIDEOUS disasters and misfortunes with our company this year, but every time I go back to a festival and put on my entire costume, it acts as a shield, and I DARE anyone to defy me!
I really want to help you ladies out, so PLEASE give me that opportunity. I feel this is my life's work, and I WILL get through to you eventually. ;)
