Show and Tell

Ugggh. Weird void-of-course Moon seems to be tossing my mind about like jelly. I had actually looked forward to a WHOLE day I could spend in the workshop, making ceramics (playing in the mud). The clay just isn't talking to me today.
Made a fresh batch of Confusion Oil, though. It seemed like a good day for it, lol.

As you may or may not know, I love giving big-ups to fellow talented Pagan artisans, and since anything else productive seems unlikely today ;P here are a few links that you guys might like:

Senjo Clothing: Very elegant, slightly twisted Pagan and Fae wear. Definitely NOT the tired Ren Faire garb or sarong (so-wrong) mess that's become standard. I know you're sick of seeing it, 'cause so am I!
You can only get whiplashed from so many over-strained corsets, or beaten up by one too many bustles before you go bat-shit crazy and torch every piece of purple velvet in a half-mile radius. Yeah.

Osseanna has a nice podcast over at GetWitchified. Its become my afternoon routine to load up her latest podcast while I'm making stuff for the shop. She is hysterical, warm, grounded, and takes a lovely intimate tone with her audience. Definitely worth checking out!

The Anti-Craft , for my beloved fellow DIYers, they have brilliant patterns and instructions for all sorts of fiber arts, with a very magical bent.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hate to say this but am provoked by your post on plagarism, Senjo Clothing looks an awful lot like Gypsy Moon's stuff. gypsymoon.com Don't know which came first, though.

I honestly don't know who started first, because Senjo has had "We are a small, newly started clothing brand" at the top of their page for at least the last two years :P

I see similarities of inspiration, but really think that Gypsy Moon is jumping into the steam-punk trend, and away from fairy. I didn't see any exact replicas, but Gypsy Moon changes their collection with the seasons; never seen Senjo eliminate a design.

Anyway, thank you for the link/heads up Robbin!
