Honestly your piercing shouldn't matter-- the pasites are shaped into cones and so there's air space between your nipple and the top of it.  Also you only need to apply adhesive in a ring around the extreme lower part so there's no chance of getting glue near your piercing either-- unless you're a little over zealous.

I finally made my heart shaped ones! They're so cute. I used craft foam instead of felt though.

Pictures!

I'm making tasseled ones soon, my next burlesque outfit is all black and I decided that the silver pasties would be too much.  I'll post pictures of those as soon as I finish them.

to make this on topic: pasties=very cool. although, I assume rather uncomfortable--but this is probably not the point?

off topic--grrloutloud, I checked out your website and my goodness, you have taken some gorgeous photography! I'm referring specifically to the "darkroom" section--the composition of the shots is very interesting and the subjects are very compelling. What I like most is that there is a realness, an everyday quality to them, and yet they have an artfulness that isn't often captured in photos that genuinely feel "everyday."

very cool website with a nice touch of humor, too.

They're not really noticeable.  I think if they weren't actually glued on and were rubbing against one's skin it would be a chafing situation, but as it is there's no friction to speak of.

Also, thanks-- that website is over a year old and the work on it is older than that.  The black and white work is from my Intimate Documentation show.  It's all work that is intended to show the beuaty in every day situations. I'm glad that it read that way to you.  My latest work is color/digital and I'm so totally in love with it...I think it blows a lot of my b/w out of the water.  I can't wait until I have a large enough portfolio of it and I can start shopping around for galleries.

Here's a small shot of one of my favorites:

Here's a tip for getting them to stick. Go to a wig shop and buy some toupee tape. It sticks wonderfully to skin, and a whole lot easier to apply than the aformentioned ideas.
Also good for strapless tops or any item of clothing you want to stay in place.

1) Your tattoo makes me green....*covet*

2) Burlington's not really big enough to have a wig shop (that I know of) but I'll bet that I can find some online.  How does it come off?

Two burlesques ago the girls were all using duct tape and were almost in tears getting it off...except me...because I had a breast reduction long story, no sensation...and this past burlesque I made these and used eyelash glue to keep them on.  I wasn't really sure how much I needed so I think I went a little overboard trying to make sure that they didn't fly off and land in someone's drink.  Getting it off was a pain because I had left my makeup remover in the car and it had frozen solid.  Ah Vermont in the winter.

Oh man, rock on, grrloutloud! I didn't know there was a burlesque troupe in Burlington! Gotta do something to keep warm up there, eh? Cheesy

We're informal...there's a big cabaret yearly but they're not so into the DIY, mst of their stuff is store bought.  We're like the underground DIY group and much more heavily burlesque than cabaret....because it's all about what you can put together with your own two hands.  (as we all know)

We used nice floofy downy feathers and they looked great.

I'd thought momentarily of feathers-- but from the practical (I know, what?) side of actually wearing them on stage, it's hard to get something that weird under your costume...and I'd be afraid that they'd get crushed.  That was one of the reasons that I shied away from tassels as well, but tassels spring back a little better than feathers do.  I also just found a vintage corset with pointy-ish cups that I could definitely fit tassels into without them showing through.  So v2.0 will def. have tassels...but feathers may not make it on stage with me. 

I'd love to see pics of the ones you made for your friend, though.

I'm not sure what that would do to the pasties, tho - it might render them unwearable a second time.  Hmmm.  Vinyl lined?

I don't think it would harm the pasties-- felt is thick and hearty.  You also don't need that much-- just a ring around the outside (the glory of vintage pasties-done-right is that there's no need for adhesive on your actual nipple).  It would likely leave the pasties on the tacky side--so they may need special storage considerations. 

Geh, the last time I used spirit gum is was for elf-ear-tips for a play and my ears were sticky for days afterward.

It wouldn't be that hard to make heart shaped ones-- in theory you'd make a heart with a square bottom and then cut the wedge in where the square bottom is so that when overlapped, it would create a point for the bottom on the heart and a point to put your nipple under.  Does that make sense?

When laying on the sequins, I would start in a circle and then start following the heart shape....although the end bits would likely have to be done with separate strands.

this is so awesome! pasties are ridiculuosly expensive as far as I have seen.
have you tried making them with tassles?I heard if you rock back on your heels, you can make em spin like Elvira Cheesy, lol.

Yeah, my total materials cost (including the glue gun) was about $5....and I have enough felt to make 8 pairs, enough sequins for 3 pairs (I got 10 yds), and enough hot glue for at least a third pair.  They took me about an hour to make 2 pairs.

I was thinking about trying a tassel pair, but I wanted to see how well these stuck first.  I put them on with eyelash glue and they stuk just fine.  I think tassels would require spirit gum...which I'm not really sure how to get off...
