I have been a very busy girl this past week.  I started a new term of college again, and that’s kept me hopping.  I’m trying to get ready for Birka which is only a week and a half away now.  And I’ve been doing some reflecting and making plans and coming up with ideas… which I will reveal in February.  Oooh the suspense!  😛

Tuesday Top Ten: Favorited Items January 1st-7th

It’s the first Top Ten of the year!  Things have slowed down a little bit over in my Etsy shop and I really need to get some new stuff listed but I’ve been concentrating on cleaning and reorganizing my studio and getting ready for Birka, which is just over two weeks away now.  Eep!

There were only nine items that were favorited this past week, so I’m going to add in the most viewed item as number 10.  Here we go!

Hand-Tied Knotted Fringe Fleece Boa Scarf – Handmade by Rewondered D201S-00001 – $24.95

I was wearing the orange and pink fleece boa scarf that matches my Animal hat and the woman cutting fabric for me at Jo-Ann asked me how I made it.  When I told her that each strip is individually cut and tied together she said that I must have a lot of patience!  Yes, they can be a little time-consuming to make, but I’m able to do them when I just need something to do with my hands but my concentration is elsewhere, like when I’m watching a movie or doing my radio show.

Also, I’m amused that two pieces of my wedding attire are in this week’s Top Ten.  I wore a Long Tu-Tu Tulle Skirt underneath my dress and the Rainbow Connection necklace.  I still need to get Rewondered dresses, ribbon veils, and Bow-quets up for sale!

Gratuitous wedding photo! See, long tu-tu and Rainbow Connection necklace. I’m holding the ribbons from our handfasting, rather than my Bow-quet though.

Speaking of getting things up for sale, I definitely need to get back to work.  Tons to do today before I go on the air for The Cape Radio at 4pm!

Tuesday Top Ten: Favorited Items December 25th – 31st

Wow, what a year 2012 was!  I ended the year as I have for the past five years: broadcasting on The Cape Radio for my annual New Year’s Eve Marathon.  I only lasted 13 hours this year, as I woke up from my nap before the show with someone else’s voice and otherwise was NOT at 100% physically.  So I did my best, but fell into bed a little after 8am.  I’m now on my new show schedule on Tuesdays from 4pm Eastern time until sometime between 7pm and 8pm, whenever my husband gets home from work and is ready to do his own show.

So that gives me a fairly busy Tuesday now, doing this weekly post and my internet radio show!

This week’s Tuesday Top Ten includes items that were favorited in my Etsy shop between Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve.  Fourteen items received a favorite, with four of those receiving more than one and ten tied for 5th place with just one favorite.

Repeats from last week:

As horrible as that craft fair at the hockey center was, it seems the skate and stick charms I bought for it were a good investment!  I’m looking for some field hockey and soccer charms now, as I have had requests for those.  Any other sports you think I should be on the lookout for?

City of Heroes Costume Inspiration and a Chance to Win

I love making and wearing costumes.  I have loved costumes for as long as I can remember and as a teenager I dreamed of opening my own costume store someday.  I’ve always planned to expand my business into creating items for cosplayers and I’m finally making some headway toward that goal.  I’ve already introduced my Straitjacket Hoodies, Tu-Tus, and Freaky Fleece Hats, but I have several more projects in the works.  Today I’m going to talk about my plans to create “real life” pieces from the City of Heroes costume creator.

One thing I loved about the costume creator in City of Heroes was the vast variety and endless combinations.  You weren’t limited to the standard spandex and cape with your underwear on the outside.  And as time went on even more costume pieces were added.  I am especially fond of the Steampunk and Gunslinger packs, and was over the moon when I was finally able to create the vision I had for One Hit Wonder’s costume from the beginning, which included the fishnet stockings and flames pattern on her skirt that I wasn’t able to do when I first started playing the game.

So what’s really great about my idea to attempt to recreate pieces from the City of Heroes costume creator is that not only can City of Heroes players cosplay their characters, but people who never played the game can use the pieces to create their own costumes, or even just wear as everyday clothes!  Check out some of the costumes I made for my characters in this album on my Facebook page.  As you can tell, I enjoyed coming up with new outfits for my character Stacey to wear when she went to the Pocket D to hang out at a Cape Radio show.

To give you a few other ideas of what types of costumes I am planning to be able to make, I went through and created a few “basic” outfits in grayscale.

These are just a few of the pieces I’m going to be working on in the upcoming months.  I’ll mostly be making items I can model myself to begin with, so I’m working off the female model here, but there are plenty of nifty ideas for the guys too.  And of course, if any of these give you ideas for something similar, I am happy to do custom orders.  I’m also working on some ideas for period garb for SCA events, as I’ll be a merchant at Birka in January, so there’ll be another post soon with more details on those designs.

Now, about that chance to win… my IndieGoGo campaign ends on December 30th and as of the writing of this post, I am $210 away from my goal.  So I decided to add a little incentive… if I’m able to reach my goal, I will draw a name and that person will get to choose between a full cosplay outfit, a Rewondered wedding dress, or a $500 gift certificate to my Etsy shop.  And if I’m able to raise at least $1210 in the next three days, I will double all the rewards and pick two winners!  How do you get your name into this drawing?  First, each $5 contributed will get one entry into the drawing (in addition to the perks already outlined in the campaign).  This includes everyone who has already made a contribution.

You will also get an entry for sharing the following image:

If you click on the image, it should take you to the image on Facebook, where you can click Share and post it on your own page/profile.  If you don’t have Facebook, you can share the link to this blog post, but please come back and post the link to your share in the comments here so I can keep track… if I don’t know you shared, I can’t enter you into the drawing!

Unfortunately, I can’t hold the drawing if I don’t reach my goal, so please make a contribution and share as much as possible.  We may only have 3 days left, but we can totally do this!!  Thank you so much for your help in spreading the word! 🙂

Tuesday Top Ten: Favorited Items December 18th-24th

I know it’s Wednesday, not Tuesday, but I was on vacation and I’m pretty sure everyone can forgive me for not posting my weekly top ten on Christmas day.  I had a lovely time visiting friends and celebrating the holidays, but I’m happy to be home again, especially with the storm that’s supposed to dump a foot of snow on us tonight.  Don’t think I’m going anywhere for awhile!  So I’ll be concentrating on getting the rest of my Five X Fifty items posted, cleaning up my studio and the rest of our rooms, and spending some time with my husband while he’s on vacation.

So that’s my coming week, let’s talk about the favorites in my Etsy shop from last week.  There were 15 items favorited, three of which got more than one.  Of the ones favorited once, three were repeats from last week: Mood Ring, Silver Key Simple Charm Necklace, and Hot Pink Beaded Charm Bracelet; and three were from the Day 18 Five X Fifty: Brown Ball Hair Pins, Gold Shell Hair Pins, and Brown and Black Paw Hair Pins.  So that leaves us with six with one favorite:

The past week was pretty hectic, trying to get everything done and shipped by the deadlines and prepped for leaving town for four days.  But from what I’ve heard, everyone who received an item I made was very pleased with their gifts.  I’ve already mentioned my plans for this coming week, but it will also be the final push for my IndieGoGo campaign which ends on December 30th.  I’ve reached 70% of my goal and getting that last 30% would be awesome.  Of course, doubling it so that I can double all the rewards would be even more awesome!  I have a couple of ideas for a last minute push, just need to hash out the details before I make any announcements…

Five X Fifty: Day 18 – Hair Pins

Slowly but surely getting caught up.  Don’t know if I’ll be able to get all 50 up before Christmas, but hope to have them done by the end of my IndieGoGo campaign at least.  As they say, the best laid plans… or is it just me who always has things happen to disrupt my long term plans?

Anyway, let’s have a look at my new hair pins.  I made a bunch of these for the craft fairs, so there will be more added in the future, but for now I’ve got these five up in my Etsy shop.

Any of these can be chosen as your free item for a $5 contribution to my IndieGoGo campaign.

After Christmas, I’ll also be doing some posts detailing a list of products you can choose from for each of the contribution levels.  Uh oh, there I go making plans again!  😛

Five X Fifty: Day 17 – Fancy Ribbon Necklaces

Today is the last day to place an order in my Etsy shop to guarantee it will arrive before Christmas.  Of course, you are welcome to order at any time, I just can’t guarantee I’ll be able to get it in the mail by Thursday (the day USPS says is their deadline for First Class Mail to arrive by Christmas).  Some items may still be ordered through the 19th, such as these Fancy Ribbon Necklaces and most of my Simple Charm Jewelry.  And anything that is one of a kind, since those are definitely already put together.  Sorry, but custom orders are not likely, but feel free to email me at rewondered@gmail.com and ask, or I can make a .pdf card for you to print out and give your gift recipient until the item is finished.  I’ll also be out of town from December 22-25 (yay, vacation!) so I won’t be able to do much of anything with the shop during that time.  I’m still pushing to get as many of these Five X Fifty products and posts up as soon as possible.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at Day 17’s Fancy Ribbon Necklaces:

Don’t forget, if I am able to raise double my goal, all rewards will double!  The $5-$35 contributions will become two free items and twice the amount of gift certificates, the $50 contributions will become $420 in gift certificates, and the $100 contributions will become two City of Heroes inspired costumes.  If just 13 more people get a costume (or subside one for me, getting autographed photos of me wearing it) we’ll just be $5 shy of making it a very Merry Christmas for everyone involved.  So please, go make a contribution!  🙂

Tuesday Top Ten: Favorited Items December 11th-17th

Time for the Top Ten items that were favorited in my Etsy shop over the past week.  Except there’s one little problem… 19 of my items were each favorited once, so this is more of a Top Nineteen list!  In fact, it will probably just be easier for me not to number them, and just post the pictures, which you can click on to go to the listing for more information.

Today is the last day to place your order to ensure delivery before Christmas, and I am no longer able to guarantee custom orders will arrive in time.  However, I am happy to make a .pdf card that you can print out to give your gift recipient which will explain what gift is on the way.

And of course, there are always gift certificates, though I recommend you make a contribution to my IndieGoGo campaign so you can get the free item as well.

So there’s still hope for you last minute shoppers! Check out these items that other people liked last week and see if any would be good for your gift recipients…

Quite the eclectic mix there, huh?  And I need to redo the photos for the last two (and several other listings) but I had wanted to get the items up so I used what photos I had.  That’s another project to add to my Massive To Do List™!

I’m going to be working on adding more items up today too, so keep an eye on my Etsy shop throughout the day.  Oh, and “Order by December 18th” really means order by the time I get up on the 19th to process those orders and get them in the mail.  So you really have until about 7am eastern time on the 19th. 😛
