This journal is friends-only. I tend to add most everyone who adds me, but I like to know where people come from and what they want to see on my journal, so I'd love it if you could post a comment with that in it before I add you. Most of my journal is private, including my costuming updates. I try to keep my links and tutorials public, though, so if that's what you're here for here's a list of what I've done:

A Note on my tutorials: I'll always accept any links or suggestions you feel free to give, but I reserve the right to politely disagree :D I'll leave dissenting comments up for future readers to view, I only delete comments that denigrate into trolling (name-calling, going off-topic to attack other areas, etc). So if you find something that you disagree with, feel free to comment and tell me why. I'm always excited to learn something new!

Not mine, but noteworthy:
[livejournal.com profile] jaberwhalky's links to victorian and edwardian clothing resources for steampunk
[livejournal.com profile] bauhausfrau's Article on recovering 18th century shoes. Probably works just as well for other centuries, too.
[livejournal.com profile] cidsa's tips for wig wear and care I don't entirely agree with all points, but until I write my own it's a good starting point.
