An evening of (dull) happenings

I left uni earlier than usual today, because I had a date with destiny. By destiny I mean Anton's, and by date I mean I called them up earlier about mabye getting some corsetry for nuwishas_tail and greenwytch's wedding.

It actually went much better than anyone had thought it would. They didn't laugh when I told them about bthe tartan train (and they will be doing what they can to track down a seamstress to make the damn thing for me), they had a corset fabric which was exactly the right colour (it's a lovely dark green, somewhere between the blue and the green in the tartan, and has the patterns of ivy running through it), they had a skirt which - when tried on - worked really well with what I had in mind for it, and I tried on two corsets which looked fantastic on me, but eventually went for the more Victorian styled one (I'm after a much sleeker line, rather than a curvy fullness).

A corset has been ordered, the dress put out the back for me, and a deposit has been paid. All in all, not bad work for an afternoon.

While the corset does have a little give in terms of sizing (because, you know, it's a corset), I still have to now be careful about gaining or losing too much weight in the next three months. I want to lose a little, but I can't lose too much. Hopefully it will all be okay.

I'm still going to need to do something about shoes (does anybody know where I can get some Victorian-style bootlets?) and the train (but the fabric isn't even in the country yet, so there's less of a rush on it). Jewelry, hair and make up are still up in the air, but what can you do.

Work (at the game store) was not too bad. I wore my recently acquired RPG-menu shirt (from and was a true geek. I also nabbed some pretty groovy freebies this week, including a Metal Gear Solid 3 t-shirt, a swanky Gamesrush girl shirt (which is made of this funky space-aged fabric or something), and a Devil May Cry 3 belt.

In summary, today was a day for me to get stuff. :)
