I was so inspired by Virginia's gothic lolita tea party last night at Ascension, that I've decided I'd like to host my own tea party sometime in the future. In addition to the tea, I'd like to have a gothic "craft class."
To all of the members in the md/dc/va area, would you be interested in coming to something like this at my home in Laurel, and, if so, what would you be interested in making? It can't involve much sewing, I'm not a sewingoth.
Potential possibilities include- sprucing up accessories such as purses, bags, wallets, shoes; making jewelery such as bracelets, chokers, earrings, etc; hair accessories; arm warmer type things; or even non-wearables, such as picture frames, boxes, or books.
I would like the craft to be something both sexes can appreciate.
I know many of the aforementioned things aren't stereotypical "manly man" items, because that is not something I am familiar with... then again, we aren't stereotypical here, are we? We could still do a manly craft, but I would need to help in instructing how to do it.
We could also have more than one craft available, or I could supply different variants on whatever item we chose to do, so that way everyone could take home something different and original.
Just like any real class, I would have to throw in a charge for the craft materials (I really hate to do it, but I simply couldn't afford to supply all the materials on my own). For the above mentioned things, I am thinking it would be around $10-$20. I could always go under that, depending on the item we were making, and if I already had the supplies.
So what do you think? Would you come? Is there anything in particular that you are interested in making? If you have any other ideas/comments/suggestions, let me know.

Haunting Melody: Peter Murphy; "keep Me from Harm"
I really like this designer's pieces, and they seem to be one of the few that offer plus sizes that do NOT assume if you wear over a size 12 you MUST have a 44DD bustline.
They areE expensive however; at least to me. Not horrible, but a lot to spend on items if I find that the quality/wearability is sub par.
I REALLY want this skirt: http://www.crimsonempress.com/temptress.htm
but $220 is a LOT of money for me to be thinking of investing in one item of clothing, especially if I am successful at loosing weight. I've emailed them ask about how easily the skirt might be altered if I do drop a few sizes over the next year.
Has anyone purchased from them or does anyone have any of thier designs? What are your impressions?

Before I begin this piece, I would like to mention something. I am looking for feedback. I am really trying to get over this fear of sharing my works. I write mainly for myself and my music (which is something else I rarely share!!). But I would like to do something in the realms of publishing my work in the not so far off future. I know not everyone is going to like my poems. That is fine, I don't like every single bloody author that makes a "book". But when I do get to the point that I put this book together, I want to only select the best of my poetry.
I have been told by people that my words are very heavy. So seeing that we are all of like minds here, you all will be able to handle it.
And with that I present( OpenCollapse )
