The Vatican Rag – Pontifical Swiss Guard Uniforms

I was approached recently about creating the Pontifical Swiss Guard uniforms.  Apparently there’s a whole role playing group centered around The Vatican, and all three uniforms were required.  In the order of appearance (I have not completed the last one yet) we have the functional work uniform, the decorative and formal red, yellow and blue … Continue reading

Tudors Down and To the Left

I was recently asked to make the Swiss Vatican Guard uniform, and it got me thinking:  Why not just make Tudor outfits in addition to the Guard?  The styles are pretty much the same, only with the Guard you also get gloves, pikes, and sometimes funky faux sleeve slashing.  While the Swiss Guard at the … Continue reading

A Spritely Suit – Julenisse Strikes Again!

A couple of years ago, Avatar Bizarre created a suit called “Julenisse” for an event called Gothmas by Gaslight, which may have been a grid-wide hunt at the time.  It is now a shopping event.  Anyway, inspired by the Scandinavian sprite that takes care of farm and livestock over the Christmas holiday, the original suit … Continue reading

If It Ain’t Baroque, Don’t Fix It

People say that fashion trends repeat themselves, but apart from a bit of 60′s style Austin Powers Mod, I have yet to see a full blown men’s 18th Century suit sitting on the racks at Macys.  It’s a shame, really, because some of the stuff from the Prince Regent era was pretty stunning, what with … Continue reading

In the Summertime

Back in the good old days, circa sometime between Victorian times and the early 20th century, beachwear was stunningly attractive, easy to swim in, and made from fabulously heat resistant wool.  Men and women alike daringly showed off their ankles and elbows.  It was quite the love-fest on the beaches of yesteryear, I can tell … Continue reading

World Goth Fair and the Sophie Lancaster Foundation

In 2007 Sophie Lancaster and her friend Rob were attacked and killed in Lancashire, England, for the way they were dressed.  Because they chose to express themselves a little differently, while harming nobody, some people took grave offense and punished these two kids in the worst way possible.  Since then, Sophie’s family has set up … Continue reading

What Am I Rebelling Against? Whudda you got?

He was always called Johnny.  Johnny was a rebel, and everyone wrote songs about him.  He was the consummate rebel, springing forth from middle America to rebel against everything in a whitewashed society.  He listened to rock and roll, kept a pack of cigarettes rolled up in a shirt sleeve, and his girlfriend popped gum.  … Continue reading

Tiny Bubbles, Great Big Waves, and Hawaiian Shirts

In the world of fashion, there’s good taste, there’s bad taste, and there’s Hawaiian Shirts.  These polyester troublemakers live in the closets of many guys, whether they will admit to it or not.  Some guys will wear nothing but Hawaiian shirts, loud or otherwise.  Traditionally, the Lord of the Luau is as colorful as possible, … Continue reading

Of Heroes, Greece and Togas

Perseus was the stuff of myth and legend in Greece.  Perseus’ mother was Danae, who was the daughter of Acrisius, King of Argos.  Acrisius had no luck in producing a son, so he went to the Oracle at Delphi, who warned that Acrisius would be killed by his daughter’s son.  In order to keep Danae … Continue reading

Snakes Alive

A few years ago, I really got into reading anything I could get from Alan Dean Foster.  His novels are a fun read; imaginative, fast-paced and, in a lot of cases, just good light-hearted fun.  He’s written a lot of Science Fiction and Fantasy, including a series called Midworld, which takes place in a Commonwealth … Continue reading
