I Completed the hip belt for this costume today. I was supposed to go to the fabric district up in L.A. to get fabric for the top, but my boy woke up in the middle of the night with the stomach flu.

After a time of rest, I suddenly have 3 orders. I am thankful, and a little stressed. This is the beginning of a complete costume for a customer. Wait until you see the rest!

Just finished new outfit. I really think this turned out great. I wish my model had a head so you could really see how the whole thing looks together.
The bra top is a lot of hard work. It has to be mostly hand sewn.

I completed this new top today
for the customer. I really like the way
it came out
. The customer suggested the shell.
I think it looks great. This is a simple strapless
bra, covered with fabric. It is partially machine sewn and partially hand sewn. It will look much better that coconuts.

Things aren't going good today

I finished this outfit today. It ended up not being what the customer wanted. You may end up seeing this in my Etsy store soon unless I can get it ironed out.

I received an order yesterday for 2 sets of Tahitian Dance Costumes. The 1st order I have had in a week or so. This is good considering I am going to Hawaii in a fer weeks, so it is good that I am slow right now. I hope to come home with some new supplies and maybe even some new costume styles.
I will post photos as soon as I finish the costumes. They are ti leaf headpieces and belts with a solid pareo and a vintage fabric covered bra top.

A New Bigger Headpiece

I just completed this headpiece this morning. It is a special order for a customer that wanted something a little bigger than I normally make. Also this headpiece is made with mostly coque feathers( the rooster tail) So it is rather expensive. I do love the color combination.

My order of Poi Balls is complete!

Sunday, October 26, 2008

Today I am working on a headpice that is a special order for a customer. It is much taller that the headpieces that I usually make. She sent me a photo to show me what she wants. I will have to finish the backside because you will be able to see the top of it.

Today I learned how to upload and image. I am so proud of myself.
This red/brown hipbelt and headpiece are listed on ebay. The price starts at $50. It also includes a full size rayon red pareo.

This week I am working on poiballs. I had a customer order 36 long and 9 short. Needless to say, I am up to my ears in poi balls. It is kind of a messy job, so my living room looks like a poi ball factory.

I'm Thouroghly Legal, Now

I did it. I finally got my business license. I feel like I've finally done something to move forward toward my business growing. Now I need to figure out how to copyright may name and I'll be all set.

Today, I'm in the middle of a big project. Making headpieces for a group of little girl Polynesian dancers.They are ages 3-6. I also made crocheted lime green tops for them. It took me a lot longer than I thought it would.

I tried to upload some pictures of what I'm working on, but it won't work. Another technical thing to try and work out.
