  • T-Shirt Fitty

    T-shirts are iffy. Sometimes you get a size that you think will fit, and then it doesn't fit as expected. Sometimes it fits ok, but then shrinks in the dryer, which is the case with our slim fit tees, which is why we say "size up". This isn't the case with the Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tee. The shirt fits a little larger than expected, and even after drying on normal heat, it didn't shrink. Pandemic got me all fatted. LOL. However, this t-shirt got me covered! I've gotten several of these and they all fit super comfortable. As you can see, right before I took the photo, I spilled coffee on it. It's soft, stretchy and roomy. The photo shows a 2XL shirt. I usually wear a 1XL, but I wanted to size up for the roominess. If you want a comfy, roomy t-shirt, this one definitely fits the bill. The colors are clean and bold and sharp and the graphic looks awesome!

  • Cookies & Cream...& Ravens?

    I made a really comfortable gingham plaid yesterday that I had to work into a few of my favorite items. I say it's comfortable because it's not as blatant as common gingham. This one is smooth. The black and white is still obvious, but muted over with soft cream. As much as I enjoy the versatility of gingham, I see it as a pretty blatant pattern. It's generally a primary color in contrast to plain white, and largely reserved for kitchen use - mainly on tablecloths, curtains, napkins - things like that. I like gingham because of it's simplicity. It screams breezy country kitchens, fresh fruit and picnics - however, I wanted to bring that sense of familiarity into something unexpected and fun, with a Southern Gothic vibe. The first thing I made was this skater skirt. I wanted to offset the formality of the gingham with a fun print, so I incorporated one of my skull and crossbones prints at the bottom, divided by some scalloping between them. It's definitely not a subtle print and I like it a lot. The white is toned down in an antique kind of way by tinting it to be more cream, and the blacks fall into a more aged grayscale. It kind of reminds me of Oreo cookies and a warm glass of milk. I love the skater skirts because of their versatility. They fit into almost any style, making them a classic go-to for me, personally. Next, I wanted to make a top to match the skirt, but I didn't want it to be an exact replica of the skully pattern. I also wanted it to be something that could match up with some of my other patterns and plaids nicely. After much thought, I decided to create a raven dressed in Victorian gentlemen attire. It's fun, unexpected, and very Southern Gothic. I placed him inside of a cameo, and just love the way he turned out. The first shirt I put it on was the relaxed jersey tank. It's perfect for Summer, but I wanted the art to be available in a more versatile way, so I placed it on a variety of shirts. The first t-shirt I created was the ""Debonair Raven" Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tee", which is on a traditional soft 100% cotton t-shirt and available sizes up to 2XL. I call this the "band shirt" because it's the shirt most commonly used for band merch. It's comfortable, but the size is a bit limited. Cotton shrinks, so if you're a true 2XL, you can't size up for the "shrink factor". It's a nice size, but some folks want a little more room for the art, and they like their shirts to have a bit more give and a bit more plus... So, I decided to go with the "all-over-print" style shirt. This shirt sizes up to a 5XL, which is wonderful! It does give me more room to make the art a bit larger as well. Unfortunately, this shirt only comes in a 95% polyester, 5% spandex blend, so for those with skin sensitivities, it's not the best buy. Again, for safety sake, you might want to size up if you're on a "cusp" size. If you're closer to a 1XL, this will fit loosely. If you're closer to a 3XL, it may fit more snug and roll up at the bottom. It really all depends on your body type. It's a standard and expected fit, so go with what you know on this one. ;) You know how I love to mix up my seasons. I like to make sure that I have that long sleeve for those chilly Summer campfire nights, or a quick slip-over during forest walks and ghost-hunting. It's also an obvious go-to for Autumn attire, so to make sure Debonair Southern Gentleman raven got more bang for his buck, I put him on the long-sleeve as well. This shirt is 100% cotton and sizes up to a 3XL. As is with all cotton, shrinkage behavior applies, so if you're worried about it, you might want to throw it in the dryer on low heat, or just hang it up to dry after laundering. To bring the entire "outfit" together - if you're indeed looking to make a few of these items an outfit - I placed the Cookies and Cream Gingham on a hoodie. The upside to this hoodie, is that I can all-over print on it, which give me a hell of a lot of artistic freedom. The other boon is it's a cotton polyester blend, making laundering a bit less "shrinky". The downside, is the size only goes up to a 2XL, so if you're a 2XL looking for that comfortable baggy hoodie, this is probably not going to give you the baggie comfort. The other downside is the price. Before it even sizes up into plus sizes or before ink color, print complexity or our own profit is considered, the base price for this hoodie is 4 cents shy of $50 (not including shipping). Right now, the lowest I could get my price after base, begins at $62. Now, if you love it and have the cash, great. If not, I'm sorry; I try to get the prices on things down as low as I can, but this guy just refuses to budge at the base price. But hey, it's a comfortable and cute hoodie, right? :) And of course, you need a bag. I decided to go with the tote on this one. I love the tote! The art and detail are clean and crisp, it's easy to clean, and it comes in 3 sizes! The small is 13" x 13" x 3", so it's a nice size for quick market runs, for use as an every day bag or a diaper bag. It's great for carrying a notebook and some essentials. The medium is 16" X 16" X 3", so you gain on the height, but not so much on the width, which is pretty standard in the way totes go. It'll fit a ouija board upright, or a sketchbook, an accessory pouch or whatever else you can fit. It's a nice size. Then there's the large. The large is 18" x 18" x 3", and is a foot and a half tall. I find it to be a perfect little travel bag, especially if you're carting a few notebooks or a text book and an accessory pouch. It's a perfect beach bag, as it holds flip-flops, beach towel, and lotions nicely. It's a great going-to- the-park bag, because if you fold your sitting blanket flat, it can fit more than a few things. Just so you get a good idea about how big it is: It's not massive, but it is a really nice size. The bottoms of the totes are boxed, so that they do stand up straight when placed on a surface (of course, that depends on what you have in it and how it's arranged.) The inside is black and the handles are pretty strong. *To launder, pretreat any visible stains with a stain remover. Mix warm water with laundry detergent and clean the bag with terry washcloth or soft bristle brush. Let the bag air dry. I also have a matching accessory pouch: The pouch comes in small or large size, has a flat bottom and black zipper. .

  • Retro Floral Baphomet Stuff

    What I love is taking old and familiar patterns that I grew up with, and giving them a darker or more esoteric spin. There is no good reason why we can't mix a beautiful floral tapestry with esoteric motifs. What is most common when looking at anything esoteric, is that it falls into the stereotypical. Dark colors, mostly black - with either silver, red or white generally flood the scene in regard to anything esoterically created. Of course, that does come with the territory in regard to the occult, after all, occult by definition does mean "dark, unseen, shadowed or hidden". But nowadays, a lot of esoteric knowledge is talked about. It's taught and it's understood by those who choose to embark on a path of choice and by those who understand the deeply symbolic metaphor that others have chosen as a way to explain it. I prefer the word "esoteric" over occult. Esoteric has similarity in definition, as it does mean "arcane" or "obscure", however I feel it is more flexible and realistic in regard to my own personal practices. Where occult means hidden, esoteric is more cryptic. It's symbolic and enigmatic and brings the seeker into their own personal mysteries, to be explained by many and various schools of esoteric thought, but in no means definitive. It is secret only in the regard that what is connective, magical and obscure is within the deepest parts of the individual experiences and psyche of an individual. The secret societies have their own way of practices, belief and organization, many of which follow their own tried and true, comfortable, hereditary or synonymous systems of understanding. There are no rules on how those symbols and metaphors should be presented, and I would think that the "old black" be more of an enticement for those who wish to express themselves more as "edgy", than of being pervasively on a path of personal alchemy or enlightenment. Of course, it too, is art; and everyone has their own personal points of view via personal experiences and references. I'm no different there. I love black, dark and earthy colors and thick and heavy textiles and fabrics. It gives me a comfort and does embody the sense of adventure, mystery and things that are beautifully arcane. Darker colors and heavy fabrics remind me of all of the things that are "dark academia", and I find it beautifully and hauntingly seductive. But, there is the other side of me that sits in the forest, surrounded by fairytales and flowing natural patterns such as ivy and vines, big leafy vegetation and the very pi and phi, from which all occult and/or esoteric thought finds itself. Spring in the forest winds it's way through these flowing patterns. Roots run through the underground unseen, pushing their way through the soft and damp soil and then run amuck - over ground, up tree and through holler. It isn't as colorful as the humanly guided landscapes, with it's carefully chosen foliage, blooms and pruned shrubs. It is wildly guided, to water, space and light. That which grows well in shadows prevails, and what doesn't, seeks a way to reach the heights or space into which it can move more freely and thrive. This is the vibe of the "Retro Floral Baphomet" pattern that I decided to stick all over various phone cases and bags. It is naturally flowing, beautifully colorful in the tones of a Spring forest, with the retro feels of muted and earthly tones. The colors hint more of morning than of midnight. Sun more than moon, however Baphomet is there in the middle, reminding us that all is in balance, all is allowed and all is personal mystery. It is modern history, mixed with the arcane, and to me, a bit of staring back at ourselves through time. Also, it's damn pretty and a hostile takeover of patterns that have been largely occupied by those of mundane points of view. It laughs at those who see it as a discomfort to the norm and dances unapologetically in it's perceived aberration. "Oh! What a pretty....wtf?!" is the reaction I assume will be prevalent. Again, the secret is in the personal knowing, that carrying such a piece is as foresty wild as your own personal will and spirit, and as suggestively esoteric and magically enhanced as per the beliefs and metaphor given it historically and personally. Why not have a backpack for school donning patterns that are quite literally about education and self-study? Why not have a phone case that invites communication when it is in and of itself a conversation piece? The pattern is alive with mystery and nostalgia. It's a love song to the past, while keeping it's feet firmly grounded in the here and now. It is deeply fairytale, while at the same time clearly inviting the metaphors of lore into introspection by showing them as growing, active and tangible forces within our own natural world. I know, kind of a lot to take in on a blog about bags and phone cases...but what else would you expect from a witch? ;) After all, you didn't come here for the "usual", didja?
