I started out to make a little bit of cash and offer a cheap alternative to purchasing undergarments from Japan. I thought that I could make a comparable product for cheap with out sacrificing quality. It's been a struggle, but I'm constantly trying to improve the quality of my products and I'm very open to suggestions. I've been trying to move into other fields (such as hairbows, etc) but I haven't found good cheap sources for the materials I would need yet. Right now I'm studying Fashion at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I live in the inner city of Chi-town, and we don't play 'round here, serious business only please. My name is Emma (feel free to call me by it). Lolita is not my only hobby, I'm also a Star Wars costumer. My costumes include Aayla Secura, a clonetrooper and a rebel fleet trooper. I love bright colors, industrial music, science fiction, urban agriculture, latex, and cyberpunk. Most of the stuff that I make is actually fairly normal, at least in the silouette, but usually pretty crazy in the fabric choices. I also maintain a garden in containers on my roof. I love planting herbs and veggies to try to supplement my family's nutrient intake with something fresh.
If I'm not responding to your email, feel free to bother me on my personal LJ, industrialkitty
Usually I don't respond because I'm being lazy and not checking my email on my computer. I'm trying to fix this character flaw.
I am ALWAYS willing to trade. Show me what you've got. I'm looking for cute stationary/crap, shoes in womens 8.5US, vegetable seeds/cuttings, CHICKENS, and really anything unusual. I'm not very picky as long as whatever it is has not come out of a shopping mall (which means that I could find it at a resale store)
I'm very eco-concious. I offer recycled fabrics and laces (it is NOT what I use on my commissions). Recycled means that I've pulled them out of the trash, flea-markets or resale stores, in whatever way they've manifested themselves. It could be some old ladies quilting box or a ripped up bed sheet. I've got all sorts.
If you don't mind recycled fabric, I'll take $3 off your order per yard of fabric used. For bloomers, this means a deduction of $3 per pair.
I promise I will update soon with more options of fabrics, laces, skirts, and better bloomer pictures.
