Day 4 of the 12 Days of Christmas Celebration-Bloomettes Galore!
On a side note, I have a skirt that is completely like a creamy, marshmallow-y, puffy, frosting-y billowy blob around my thighs. It's tons of fabric just bustled, folded, pillowed, and protruded away from me. When I wear this skirt with my corsets at festivals, I get people going crazy, and lots of people seem to want it, but I KNOW if it were hanging there on a rack, it would seem daunting, and I would have my otherwise intelligent customers asking me if they would be able to wear it because they have enough "junk in their trunk". Ahem. This is where I burst a blood vessel and go into horrible customer service mode, and then people tell tales all through the renaissance festivals about that CREE-AZEEE B-word at Damsel in this Dress. It's just that I NEED people to understand that when you're wearing a bustle skirt, a huge hoop skirt, a tutu, puffy pants, ANYTHING that is more voluminous, others will see the shape and the loveliness of the fabric and construction. They will literally NOT be able to see your body. It's the best camouflage I've ever seen. As you can tell, I've channeled a lot of passion into this particular subject, but think about it...I shape bodies
and create illusions for a living.
