I like the color choice but from the pic I can’t tell what the words are.
ya ya ya, I should have been more clear - the image in this picture is just something I copied off a real person’s tattoo (see below), not an actual representation of what I’m going to get. I couldn’t parse out the words in the original so I just threw in a random Latin phrase as a place holder. Also yeah, I’m a big fan of these colors - the right arm would be in cool hues
okay. YOU APPARENTLY WANT WHAT I WANT so if you find a good tattoo artist, please let me know. also, this is stunning.
MOLLY WE CONTINUE TO BE THE SAME PERSON AND IT MAKES ME SQUEE here is the original picture I copied from
I’ve found a couple artists around town whose work I like and who I think could likely pull off the style - as soon as I find one for certain I’ll let you know. also it was just me doodling with a sharpie and crayola markers but thank you lskhfwiaohf;ksdhfiowdhs
I can’t fold my 18th century dress. I keep moving it re folding it hanging it. I have even put it on my dress form just to get it out of the way. Still nothing is just right.
that’s a good solution for that one. I tried hanging, but after it bowed two hangers and broke another it lost all closet privileges and was consigned to the underbed.
For the cotton ones space bags are fantastic for the other stuff go with a modern-day trunk aka plastic tubs
Oh and the best storage is just to wear them :)
I have a good plastic underbed box for it - it’s more of a “wait, how the hell am I supposed to fold this 18-yard skirt so it doesn’t crease and wtf this bodice is boned that certainly won’t fold” situation
and yes, I’m quite sure that me tramping through snow in skirts and a corset will definitely improve my snow-balance ;-)
