About

Who needs an excuse to dress up?

I like wearing interesting clothing. I would use any event - roleplaying conventions, pagan conventions and events, re-enactment events - to dress up in things I like wearing, loosely based on mediaeval clothing (both realistic and fantasy). People often asked (as I changed outfits several times a day), "Where did you get that?"
I explained that I made the item (cloak, boots, tunic, kilt, robe or whatever) myself. Many people asked whether I could make them something, so I started doing custom orders. However, I also would find nice fabric and just make something that I thought would look nice out of it.

Eventually I found Etsy, which made it easy to sell items with secure payment and safety for purchasers. I love the idea of "maker culture" and like the idea of promoting it.

Now I hope to encourage more people to be confident enough to wear garb of any sort in everyday life, to break free of the boring fashions (especially for men) that major retailers foist upon us. Just as I wear a cloak to work each day during winter, I hope to see others wearing interesting garb around town for no particular reason.

I would like to see a rise in the preference for one-off items, made by individual makers not mass produced, through which people can express themselves in what they wear.

We have the advantage now of having so much inspiration - history, literature, film, television, our own imaginations - so why just wear the same boring clothing everyone else wears? Who needs an excuse to dress up?
