…what had to leave the Klamottenkiste… Part 6

Russian Flower
It always sounds so sad when I write these posts – and sometimes it is!
The reason for this was definitely nerve-wracking – because my closet practically collapsed!!!

But this post is not sad at all, because I am so happy that some of my beautiful works have ended up with loved ones who still wear and appreciate them!

This time I gave my little sister Lisa and my dear stepmother Marlies a lot of nice things.

So is my beloved Russian Flower with the Russian Flower Bag and the Russian Flower Choker now in good hands. Here with me, it really only hung on a dress form for years because it didn’t fit me anymore.
The same goes for the cheerful Picknick Dress with the Bag for the Picknick Dress. That suits Marlies much better than me ;-)
She also got the Tea Pot Dress which she looks lovely in too :-)
I also gave her the last remains of the Bold Balloonist – now the outfit should almost be back be completely in one place.
Also the Olive Green Lace Knit Wrist Warmers and the Don’t Blink Shirt went to Marlies!

To wear the wonderfully cuddly warm Night Blue Poncho with the Night Blue Wrist Warmers Marlies and Lisa almost had a fight – I think they can take turns wearing them now in winter ;-)

My often worn Ready Made has been way too small for me for a long time, but Lisa fits in and so it ended up with her :-)

But now you mustn’t think that I now have room in my closet!
At least there should now be a very small gap so that I can start my new steampunk project ;-)

Yours,
JessiCat

Happy Halloween and a new costume: Steampunk Pixie

Steampunk Pixie
Since there is no Halloween party for me this year either, I would like to at least show my costume, which I actually wanted to wear at the Anno 1900 Steampunk Convention this year, but could not wear because of the low temperatures:
My Steampunk Pixie with her Pixie Wings :-)

Marlena Wels took the enchanting pictures – thank you very much for that!
I’m really proud of this costume and it has now got suitably beautiful pictures too ;-)

I wish you all Happy Halloween and hope for a big party next year with lots of great costumes!

Yours,
JessiCat

Anno 1900 Steampunk Convention 2022

Anno 1900 Steampunk Convention 2022 - Day 1
This year the Anno 1900 Steampunk Convention took place again after a two-year pandemic break at Minett Park Fond-de-Gras in Luxembourg and we were there :-)

It was so nice to see our friends again and to marvel at so many wonderful costumes! :-D

I had to adjust my own costume plans shortly beforehand: Since the temperatures were lower than expected, I couldn’t wear my planned costumes.
In this way, my Mourning Robe from 2014 was allowed to get a taste of Fond-de-Gras air and show itself at the convention :-)
For the second day I had to improvise something: The well-worn Airship Captain Diva-skirt, combined with Eric Aisling’s stunning leather corset and harness made a great new costume – you can see a lot of pictures of it in the gallery :-)
The pictures are by Eric Aisling, Paul Jean Marchand and Stefan Hepp, among others.

For the next Anno 1900 I wish for warmer weather so I can finally show my new costume that I finished in 2020!
But you’ll see it beforehand, because I’ve already had a fairytale shoot with it and I’m looking forward to showing you the pictures and the detailed costume description very soon ;-)

Yours,
JessiCat

A New Boho Crochet Skirt

Boho Crochet Skirt
The last summery post of this year is about that Boho Crochet Skirt.

Now I’m happy that after a two-year break due to the pandemic, we’re going back to the Anno 1900 Steampunk Convention in Luxembourg.
Maybe I’ll bring some pictures of it :-)

A New Outfit: Café au Lait Shirt with Wrist Warmers

Café au Lait Shirt
And here is another one of my countless crochet works, the Café au Lait Shirt, complete with matching Café au Lait Wrist Warmers.

Since I’m still very unproductive, there will still be only crochet works.
But I’m sure that will change again soon ;-)

New: Crimson Crochet Lace Waist Belt

Crimson Crochet Lace Waist Belt
Today I want to show the little project that started my crochet madness last year, the Crimson Crochet Lace Waist Belt.

After almost a year of only crocheting, I always have sewing ideas in my head…
Unfortunately, at the moment it mostly stays with the ideas :-(

Maybe better times will come again and with it the motivation to create great costumes…
And until then I still have a big bunch of crochet works to show off ;-)

Yours,
JessiCat
