A Losing Battle
Hair, we all have it yet it’s such a cultural thing. This is basically the battle I grew up losing, until I finally decided to embrace my curls.
Finally, an accurate post about No Shave November.
I tie myself in knots.
Who needs hair ties :)
Clothes are just fantastic. In fact, clothing is how Kato managed to make a name for herself thanks to the success Steampunk Couture. But sometimes clothing is totally overrated, and it’s a little ironic that Kato would be the first person to tell you that. What can I say, she’s in the business of putting clothes on other people, not necessarily herself.
The Soft Pompadour and Psyche Knot.

That’s me! Finally someone blogging the actual address! Thank you!
Also I have plans (hah!) of getting an A3 bed scanner to be able to more safely scan my books :) And I can get them on my site properly- these have been online since what… 2000-02? So that means with my very old Agfa scanner. Wow.
There are so many nifty fashion plates in these Girl’s Own books. And I have managed to read a few of the serials published. I also happen to have the annuals that cover a change in the editor. The magaine shifted focus quite dramatically. My 1907-08 books are much more focused on pretty frocks vs later where it was more practical. Also knitting and crochet patterns galore.!!!!!!
