I’m selling some bustle pads. Anyone interested?

edwardian-time-machine:

I have plenty of leftover pillow stuffing and almost enough fabric for 2 bustle pads for you reenactors, living historians, or just folks that love to dress up. :) It’s just a plain white cotton/slighty stiff cotton white fabric bustle pillow with white twill tape around the front. I can make any waist size.

I would have to receive the payment upfront (cost + shipping) This covers material cost, mostly.
The cost would be $20 + shipping, depending on your location

imageHere’s what the measurements are.

I can make at least one or two for now, but depending on demand, I would purchase more material. The time it would take to make them would be up to one week (I have to hand sew each one of them, plus there’s work and school, but right now, I won’t have school for a whole week, so until the 8th of Oct. would be a great time to order one.) And then I usually ship it the day after completion.

Whacha think? If you don’t wanna purchase, that’s cool. :) I would still appreciate it if you wouldn’t mind reblogging/sharing on tumblr and other sites. I would love to make some good customers happy!

i like flawed characters. characters with BIG GAPING flaws, ESPECIALLY female characters, who almost never get to fuck up without horrifying consequences and “being put in their place”. who don’t even get to show authentic emotion without fandom absolutely tearing her to pieces. 

i want female characters with flaws the size of tony stark’s but who are still forgiven, beloved, redeemed and ALWAYS considered a hero

women who aren’t uber competent or badasses off the bat. women who are arrogant, overconfident, who learn how to care for people other than themselves. women who are merciless, overeager maybe, bloodthirsty in all the wrong ways. women who are naive and soft-hearted, who have to learn how to stand up for themselves while still maintaining their idealism

tired of female characters presented as already efficient and competent in every single way, who’s only character development seems to be “learning to love” useless white male protag

Brilliant Damage
Parchment often contains some kind of imperfection. Holes, for example, are a common occurrence on the page of a medieval book. The parchment maker’s knife, scraping off hair and fleshy bits from the animal skin, was sometimes handled with too much pressure, producing holes such as the one seen in this brilliant image. That a drawing of a dragon should perfectly align with such a hole is a coincidence. What I like about it is the view it opens to the next leaf. I can just imagine how the heartbeat of the medieval reader sped up when he saw that a dragon was about to be introduced into the story. Parchment damage as a sneak preview: excitement coming to a chapter near you.

New greeting cards are now available in the shop just in time for Halloween! Though, personally, I need witches in my life year round.

But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going because they were holding onto something.”

What are we holding onto, Sam?
