>> Art blog
Messy bunch of reblogs contain e.g. art I find impressive, beautiful or interesting, photography, animals of many sort (especially cats!), overall things I find cute, gaming related posts, tattoos, nail art, and fandoms including Assassin's Creed, Pacific Rim, Shingeki no Kyojin, Disney, Ghibli, Pokémon, Mass Effect and Adventure Time, to name a few. You never know.
I by myself am doing this and that. Art doodles, handcrafts, glass work, cosplay, gaming, roleplaying, list goes on. I'm a young woman in my 20s living in Tampere, Finland, and study in Tampere University of Applied Sciences' Degree Programme in Media (an English interactive media program). My dearest dream in the moment is to own a cat. *u*
are you a boy? your clothes are boy clothes.
are you a girl? your clothes are girl clothes.
are you outside the binary of boy and girl? so are your clothes.
did someone just tell you your clothes don’t match your gender identity? they are a trashcan and their clothes are trashcan clothes.
Or in the words of Eddie Izzard..

This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.
Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!
Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.
Also available in sheer!
There is lots of confusion about what a corset is these days! Things get muddled and confused, so we here at Waisted Lives have decided to make a quick comprehensive guide.
This is not a corset. This is in fact a longline bra. Defining characteristics: It is a bra, made of traditional bra materials (power mesh, often underwire, has separate cups, hook and eyes in the back, etc.), and extends longer than a regular bra, generally just above or to the natural waistline.
This is not a corset. This is a bustier! It is a piece of lingerie that is actually quite lovely! Generally plastic boned, usually made of similar materials as bras, such as power mesh and lacy goodness.
This is not a corset. This is actually a more confusing piece of clothing, as it has not been around nearly as long as anything else here. It is often referred to as a bralette or a crop top (although it differs from traditional baggy crop tops with its inherent structure). The main difference between these and longline bras is that longline bras are considered underwear, while these are considered outerwear! Although you can certainly wear anything however you want, that’s the fun of fashion!
This is not a corset. It’s a girdle! Girdles are a type of shapewear that historically evolved from the corset as an undergarment (not that the corset is in any way extinct). They are lighter weight and easier to move in while still having a good amount of shaping power. They achieve this by eliminating the boning used in corsets and instead using fabrics with an elastic quality to achieve the desired shape.
This is not a corset. This is a Merry Widow, which is possibly the coolest name for any shapewear. This garment was created to try to eliminate the need for two separate undergarments, the longline bra and the girdle, although this garment ends at the hips. While this garment has steel boning, these bones are not used to achieve a cinch like a corset, but rather a long smoothed line. There are no laces, but often a zipper or another kind of set closure. In more recent years however, it’s become less shapewear and much more very fancy bridal lingerie.
This is not a corset. This is a corselette, which despite what you remember about romance language word building, it is not a small corset. This garment is very serious shapewear designed to smooth and tighten up from your breasts to your hips and over your butt. Sometimes made of bra materials, such as powermesh, a corselette like this is designed to be very comfortable and liveable shapewear.
This is a corset! (And a very fine one at that.) Some good defining features of high quality corsets include, but are certainly not limited to: lacing through grommets (not eyelets) up the back, a solid front closure (steel busk, heavy zipper, grommets, or sometimes no closure), steel bones, either custom sizing or sizing based upon waist measurements (no small, medium, large).
If there’s anything you would like to add, please tell us!
I’ve decided to design a line of clothing, and I’m going to call it It Has Pockets. It’s going to be a line of simple dresses and skirts and every single one will have fucking pockets.

Embroidered details in Game of Thrones
‘Michele Carragher is a London-based Hand Embroiderer and Illustrator who has been working in costume on film and television productions for over 15 years. She studied Fashion Design at The London College of Fashion, where the course incorporated design, pattern cutting, garment construction, embroidery, millinery and illustration. At the same time she attended a three year evening course in Saddlery at Cordwainers College learning skills in leatherwork.
After leaving college Michele worked in Textile Conservation, repairing and restoring historical textiles for private collectors and museums, specialising in hand embroidery. She then moved into a career in costume for film and television, initially working as a Costume Assistant/Maker on productions such as the BBC’s Our Mutual Friend, ITV’s David Copperfield and Mansfield Park. She soon gravitated towards the decoration and embellishment of costumes, using skills in hand embroidery and surface decoration, taking inspiration from the many historical textiles she had encountered working as a Textile Conservator.
The first production that saw her undertake the role of a Principal Costume Embroiderer was for HBO’s 2005 Emmy Costume award-winning production of Elizabeth 1. Her most recent work has been on HBO’s 2012 Costume award-winning television series Game of Thrones, working on all three seasons.
As a Costume Embroiderer Michele specialises in hand embroidery and surface embellishment, using traditional hand embroidery techniques, smocking, beading and surface decoration. She works directly onto the completed garment or starts with motifs and textures on silk crepeline/organza, which are applied to the costume and then worked into once on the actual garment. She also works on existing machine embroidery designs that are not too dense, adding some hand stitching and beading to give a more authentic, hand-finished look.
Michele finds hand embroidery has more flexibility and diversity than that of embroidery created by machine, as there is a greater variety of thread choice and colours to use. It is also possible to work more easily on garments that are already constructed. However, machine embroidery in combination with hand work can be very useful when completing many repeats by creating light outlines or a less dense machine stitch, work can then be completed by hand and again can be carried out on a finished garment.
Michele is a highly creative Costume Embroiderer, producing original designs as well as working closely to a costume designer’s brief to create their desired look.’
