"The hat in the fashion plate at first reminded me of a Russian or Kazakh hat, but on second look seems like a white felt hat with a VERY wide satin belt or panel around it, from what sheen shows.Amazing work you have done."

The Adventures of the daring Wolfie and the less than Daring Sair on a time traveling venture to the middle ages!

Posted on July 9, 2009 at 7:43am 0 Comments

This weekend, Wolfie and I gathered a group of gypsies, pirates and princesses and ventured down though time to the Highland Renaissance Faire. We had a lovely time and happened to meet Travis there, and I highly recommend everyone go and visit while you still can because it's the end of their season already.



There were a number of merchants present who were interested in tapping into the demographic of the mid to late 1800s, and I promised I'd pass their information along if they so… Continue

I am in love with my graduation present, a shiny new Singer sewing machine.



Now my head is swimming with projects that I can accomplish in record time. I also have the tail end of an outfit I'm working on, that I'd like to have presentable by the 11th, and working on more foundation garments.



So many foundation garments. If I start now I might be done by the time a season rolls around that I'll be willing to wear a chamise, bloomers, corset, petticoat and… Continue

Happy Holidays & Happy New Year Sair!! May your holiday season be filled with brass gears & copper cogs. May your new year be filled with endless steam.

I was poking around the site and I realized your profile picture is a dead ringer for one of my current outfits.

Great minds think alike?

Lady Blades,

As I have erred in addressing you as a Sir in the past. hopefully you have forgiven me this regretable gender misnomer. It appears we share the same day for a birthday (why mine is not listed in this larger realm is something of a mystery). Hope that you have a wonderful birthday, and perhaps us Gemini's shall pair up in person at some future point.

Good to see you again. I hope that you, Wolfie, and more can make it to the Salon in October.

Glad to see that your back in steampunk circulation. Will you remain in the Queen City for a bit longer or is post graduate life taking you away soon?

Yes, every little bit helps thank you kindly!

Sair, you really should try to come out with us to the Southgate House on August 13th to see the Two Man Gentlemen Band; especially seeing you are missing our other two events this month. It's a great show and you'll love it!

Hello Miss Blades, i was wondering if you had a higher resolution format of the OSS flag that I might be able to use to make a full size one?
