Newish

I took this down and shortened the length by a good 5 inches.
I also lowered the price by $9.  The mannequin is too small for it... also, that vest doesn't compliment it... I guess something w/spaghetti string straps would work...

I also listed this fella:
A victorian slide transparency.  I wish the image on the transparency had turned out darker, though.  In the interest of full disclosure I added this picture to the listing:
And I got pictures of the gloves:
I just don't know about this fix:

I think it's pretty neat, but will the buyer?  
(Not neat as in tidy, you know.)

I'm working on another one:

 Here the strip that enlarges it is clearly the decor, so I'm happy about that.  As you can see, the color is very Sparrow inspired.  I dyed vintage crochet, glove and bandage.
The image of the front is way blurry, oops.  But look at those crazy copper studs!  I'll probably tone them down w/oxidizing patina, probably my favorite thing in the world.  I already gave them quite a bath in it to remove the silver plating.  I have plating!  So shiny and lifeless.   But when it comes off, the base metal is really intense.  Anyways, just a work in progress.  While my hands slowly loose their power... sob.

Holy CRAPSTICKS how did you get those studs to be copper? It sounds like you removed the plating and then put them in copper patina? I NEED TO KNOW. I have ideas for things that require bronze and copper coloured studs, but I can't find any. These are perfect- so ruined looking.
