Halloween Ordering Deadlines

Need a handmade item by Halloween or earlier? Here are the ordering deadlines for US customers:

Non-handmade items: order 1 week before you need the item.

All handmade items, except hoodies: order at least 2 weeks before you need the item. It will take me up to 10 days to sew the order, and USPS first-class shipping will take up to 3 days to deliver the item. 

Hoodies: order at least 3 weeks before you need the item. Hoodies have an extended sewing time compared to other items.

Custom orders (including items made in a custom size): Depending on the complexity of the item it will take between 2 and 4 weeks to sew and ship the item to you. If you need a custom order before Halloween there might still be time but you will need to contact me about it by September 30th.

If you live outside the US, send an email to to get an estimate on when you will receive your item. I cannot guarantee shipping times for international customers. 

If you miss your deadline, there is a possibility that I can bump your order ahead for a rush fee. However I may be too busy to accept rush orders this year.

Happy Halloween!

New Hoodie Prices

All animal print hoodie prices will raise by $10 to $20 on August 1st. I hate to raise prices but I can no longer keep up with sewing orders on my own and I will need to hire an assistant to help me out this fall. The current prices don't support that so I have to raise them. So if you have been planning on buying a hoodie, you should get it before this month is over to take advantage of the cheaper prices.

I am also working on some new hoodie designs that won't cost as much so that you still have more options.

List of new prices:

Basic men's and women's hoodies: $86
Men's black hoodie with animal print sleeves: $96
Women's corset hoodies: $96
Women's hoodie with faux fur hood band: $94
Custom hoodies: price starts at $100 (this may be negotiable if you just want a basic hoodie with small changes)

To remind people of the price change, I am using sale prices to show the lower price and the new regular price. 

Most of the other items in my shop are priced correctly so hopefully I won't have to do any other big price increases this year. The new hoodie prices should give me enough extra funds to continue expanding this business and offering more and more items. Thank you so much to everybody who supports independent businesses like this one!

Weekly Update: June 4th, 2014

Last week I added a slim-fit option for men's hoodies, lowered prices on some stretch lace shorts, put a $5 off sale on all leopard items, and restocked Tripp NYC moto jackets. Keep reading for photos, links, and price info.

Lower prices on certain styles of stretch lace shorts: lace-up shorts are now $28 and grommet shorts are $26. 

All shorts are available in size XS to 3XL. 

Men's hoodies are now available in a slim-fit style that is 2 inches narrower in the waist (4 inches smaller all around the waist). They are also available in 2 different lengths and in sizes Small to 3XL, so there should be enough size options to fit almost anyone.

Men's hoodies are available in brown leopard, grey leopard, zebra print, and black with animal print sleeves.

There is a $5 off sale on all leopard print items in the shop:

And lastly, Tripp NYC moto jackets have been restocked. Both styles are available in size Small to 2XL. The cotton moto jackets are $75 and the faux leather jackets are $95. 

Coming soon: even more varieties of stretch lace shorts and new metallic lace-up dresses.

$5 Off Leopard Print Items

I'm going to do a series of 10(ish) day sales this summer, starting with leopard print items. I almost never do sales on handmade items between September and April so if there's a handmade item you have your eye on, pay attention! Soon I will create a mailing list so that you can sign up to get notices about sales. 

The only leopard item not included in this sale is the leopard print guitar straps, but I will have a separate sale on those pretty soon. 

The current sale will end on June 10th. 

Here are all the $5 off items. Most of them are available in size Small to 2XL or 3XL. Click on the photo to go to the item page.

Weekly Update: May 24th, 2014

It looks like my slow season has finally started, so I'm taking a little time off work this week to de-stress and organize my life a little better. I'm still finishing orders within 7-10 days so you don't have to worry about my mini vacation causing any order delays.

Soon I will start doing weekly sales to drum up a little more business during the summer. The first sale will be $5 off leopard print items and I will try to have it up by Tuesday. 

New stuff from the past two weeks:

Black Lace-Up Mini Dress, size XS to XL

Soon this dress will be available in black and red metallic fabrics!

These trims are discounted because I ordered too much and didn't end up needing them. 

Lace-Up Leggings have a new waistband and lacing style. The thick black cotton waistband has an elastic band encased inside so that you don't have to worry about them riding down. The new black cotton lacing is easier to tie into a bow than the slippery satin lacing that I used to use. Available in size XS to 3XL. 

The leopard and metal leggings have the same new waist band style, and they are now available in white/purple leopard print. Available in size XS to 3XL.

Weekly Update: May 9th, 2014

Check out the newest designs below, or scroll to the bottom to read about upcoming designs:

New version of Lace-Up Stretch Lace Shorts, XS to 3XL

The lace-up dress worn over the shorts will be available next week. 

Other News:

Several items have been added to the Sale Section, and several current sale prices have been lowered. Jerome Russell Hair Dye is also on sale.

The D-Ring Mini Dress is back, now available in sizes XS to XL

I will spend the rest of this month coming up with new versions of current designs. Most of the items that I have added to the website recently have been made out of black cotton and black mesh fabrics, and I plan to make those same designs in different colors and prints. (like red, plaid, leopard print, etc.!)

In June I will start working on the Halloween and Fall/Winter collections. I have lots of ideas for new sweaters and hoodies and I can't wait to start! I will also continue making more Spring/Summer designs until about July.

This is also the best time of the year to ask for a custom order, because it is my slow season. I also will be raising hoodie prices in August so if you are thinking of getting a current hoodie design I recommend buying it within the next couple months before the prices go up. I will post more info about the price increase soon. The rest of the prices in the store will remain the same.
