This is Maria Christian, my former cast director at the Michigan Renaissance Festival as her character, Princess Isaade M’boukou. Maria’s been designing and wearing African-Elizabethan fusion garb to MiRF for decades, so she has a few different gowns and headpieces in rotation. In addition to her duties keeping the stage acts organized, as Isaade she acts as an impresario at the feasts, talks about West African traditions and folklore, and is much needed and treasured PoC representation on the cast.

I go to the Michigan RenFest every year and I remember see this woman’s amazing dresses. Fun fact, we also have The Nun, who roams the grounds in a period habit trying to save souls and punishing nonbelievers. She’s also a very awesome black woman.

That sounds amazing and terrifying.

This. Is. SOOOOOOOOOOOOO. COOL!

Just wanted to remind everyone that I also take Garb submissions!

  Some finished photos of my glittery gothic dress! I’m quite pleased with how it came out. I hope I manage to get decent photos before the season passes. 

It’s made from cotton broadcloth, tulle, spirit fabrics, and heap of seasonal decor items from Michaels! The dress was a challenge of patience since things kept going wrong but it wasn’t very difficult to make. 

I have two blog posts about making it, a video on making matching crowns, and a few other dresses made with the same method!

A trans lady friend of mine just said “back in the before time, when I had pockets” and I am just laughing forever, because her slow descent into rage vis a vis the uselessness of her new business wardrobe has been a schadenfreudetastic delight.

If anyone out there wants to design and make formal, or at least business, cargo pants, especially in lady cuts and colors, … Well you can put both of us down for 3 pairs.

Jason Wu by Steven Klein For W Magazine August 2014 Issue

THIS IS AN INTERESTING WAY TO PROMOTE A SUIT

I, for one, am delighted that “guy in sharp suit with hot women draped all over him” is being replaced by “guy in sharp suit with hot robots draped all over him”.  Clearly much more tailored (hee!) to the discerning modern consumer of haberdashery.

no idea what’s happening here, but I approve

The thing is tho, it’s not ‘hot robot draped over dude’It’s ‘hot dude draped over robot’

Fuck yes it is. That’s the way to sell a fine piece of hardware to me, dammit.

the bed in the back tho … 

Goals.

I am here for this.

Just for fun - how do you carry your stuff? →

Pockets? Purse? Messenger bag?

I love messenger bags, myself - I have about 4 of them. I carry gadgets with me nearly everywhere I go, often have my laptop with me, and even finding a purse that would hold my iPad and charging cables was a pain in the neck.

I’m also crazy about cargo pockets….

I love the handbag of holding

I have a black messenger bag that my parents bought me as a graduation present that can double as a laptop bag and that has to be dumped out periodically because all of a sudden it weighs a ton and no wonder since there’s $6 in loose change, two books, and a sheaf of papers an inch thick.  Not to mention the knife, the bar tool, makeup that didn’t make it on my face before I left the house, food, underwear…

But I love clothes with useful pockets, which are usually jackets.  Being able to go out and *not* worry about my bag is awesome.

WILLKOMMEN, BIENVENUE, WELCOME! - Spirit And Flesh Magazine

Can I bellow “CUMMING” the same way I bellow “SWINTON”?

I remain skeptical.

yes, yes you can.

Also gentlemen, take note: this is how you age spectacularly.

I view him and SWINTON as the benevolent, saucy, ambiguous godparents we ALL need.
