I saw one of the Olsen sisters wearing a coat like this (sorry, couldn't find the pic) but I have no idea what it is called, making it difficult to find a pattern. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!
Oh, it says "bell sleeves" on the left and "gathered material" and "about 6" from crotch" on the right
"Gelatin is made from collagen, a protein that comes from animals used for food, like beef or pork. Production of gelatin is under supervision of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). During the manufacturing of gelatin, chemical changes take place so that the final product, the composition, and identity of the original material is completely eliminated. Because of this, gelatin isn't considered a meat by the United States Government."
So their Jello at least, is not vegetarian friendly. I'm guessing that the US government's classification of gelatin as a non-meat product is what gave rise to the notion that Jello was vegetarian friendly.
I've worked in a shop that sells dancewear for over a year now, and I have to say if your design appeals to dancers and you sell them to any shop in town, dancers will buy them. Not only will they buy them, if your designs work well for them, you'll develop a reputation, with them at least, of making dancewear.
I know of two clothing brands and a couple of local stores that have developed a reputation among our town of catering to dancer because they go and wear their stuff onstage. And these are shops like Deb and other mainstream stores.
I'm not saying you should do something against your morals or the belief its not best for your business, I'm just letting you know.
Let me start out by saying that I've not done a craft fair yet. I agree that mostly people who haggle are just cheap. I worked in an "adult novelty store" for a year and we always had these dumb.... I hesitate to use the term "white trash," but if you saw them, that would be the only term to describe them... women come in and walk around, and say "I could get that at Walmart for $10." (referencing lingerie) Then they'd come to me and epect me to discount it for them because they asked. Some even got pissy when I explained that even had I wanted to, I couldn't, as I didn't have the right computer lonin to do so!
That being said, I've haggled with a few women at craft fairs. I don't mind paying more for something of quality and unique, but I've seen people selling something that was either obviously overpriced or something like that. IE I wouldn't pay $10 for a little button that cost someone 27 cents to make and took only 2 minutes. I'm not saying any of you people do that, but has anyone else had that experience?
A while back, I came across a website where a guy made cakes and they were all assembled into a torso. There was a spleen, a liver, a heart, etc. He had injected them with jelly(?) so they oozed when cut.
But, my computer went whacko and I lost the link. I can't seem to find it. Can you help me?
What was this made for? I can picture my LARP friends wearing something like this for character costume pieces. The rings attached to the metal at the wrist reminded me of the bracelets and rings that the Lord/Lady of Goddess keep wear in Melanie Rawn's Sunrunner books. I'd wanted a pair of those forever.
Awesome. (And I mean that in the seeing-the-Earth-from-orbit kind of awesome, not hotdog awesome.)
