Needed this item for a cheer competition. We used fine glitter with this and it worked great! Fast shipping.
A New Technique
My daughter says I'm a maker, and I guess that's exactly what I am. I make clothes, toys, hats, jewelry, baked goods, books, home decor items, and the list goes on. I've even made two people, a boy and a girl. I just love to create--things, artwork, and even stories.
The creation of Gossamer Couture came about with the discovery of a new technique. This technique came to me while problem-solving a completely unrelated project at my full-time job. After the solution dawned on me, I imagined all the unique ways I could use this discovery. I began experimenting with fabrics and patterns, and my first collar and mask were born. They were received with great excitement by my friends and family, so I decided to create Gossamer Couture. My shop wasn't up for long before I had the idea for make-up stencils. They have been a fun addition to round out my shop and have allowed me to offer something equally fun and mysterious at a lower price point.
Most of my sales occur shortly before Halloween, though my pieces are also great for parties, clubbing, raves, concerts, art events, Mardi Gras, Carnival--any time or place you want to stand out, make a statement, or exude mystery. (I've also been told that my masks are a great accessory to spice up lingerie!)
Gossamer Couture has been a great place for me to express this facet of my artistic self. Take a look and enjoy the exotic mystery of Gossamer Couture.
(I am always happy to accommodate the requests I receive from photographers and stylists to borrow pieces for photo shoots. Just message me for my policies.)
