These were perfect for my 5 year old's birthday party! The kids saw The Good Dinosaur and then had cake followed by lots of dinosaur dancing with their new hats and tails. Just adorable!

Purchased already made tail November 18. Shipping label was created November 24; package never shipped. Contacted shop December 13. Have yet to hear a reply. Will be reporting a dispute to Etsy, PayPal/credit cards etc in two days. Otherwise, I expect this order to arrive by Christmas - a mere 6 weeks after initial purchase.

About

one little girl's ostentatious tastes

I just wanted to own pretty things, made out of the best materials money could buy. Some say this is a classic Capricorn trait, others assumed I was shallow.

I just like nice things.

When my family couldn't afford my ostentatious tastes I got baby sitting jobs. I bought vintage clothing at rummage sales and altered it to fit my 14 year old frame. I realized that I could make nicer clothes than I could ever afford. You see, I was reading Vogue and Moda, so what I wanted you couldn't find at the mall anyway. My clothes would be authentic haute couture, one of a kind made by Alisson, for Alisson.

20 years later and hundreds of thousands of dollars in law school debt, I was laid off and on unemployment. I wanted to work, but it was a nightmare for 2 years trying to find a job.

During those couple years, I was desperate to keep my hands busy. I had to be clever. I started out making cowhide wallets and clutches. Then I made terrariums. These were just things I wanted to own, so I had made them for myself in the past. Now I thought- "I do get a lot of compliments when people see these pretty trinkets and beautiful bobbles... This may be a good hustle." So I started a website. And I started to sell a lot of pretty things.

I was surrounded by my professional friends and YUPPY colleagues, who were all having kids, all the time. In spite of being broke, my pride insisted that I needed to give good gifts at birthdays, baby showers, weddings. For babies I made quilts of my own design. For weddings, I'd make a set of custom garters (matching- one to throw and one to keep forever,) or I'd make jewelry for the bridal party.

Soon I was making dress-up/ fantasy costume toys to give as kid gifts and within a couple months I wasn't just giving them as gifts, I was selling them faster than I could make them. I realized that with each popular product I made, I could get a serious huslte going and make some cash. I sold to friends, their friends, their friends' relatives- everyone was buying whatever I made.

Then there was a break-through and this became a business. I truly have to thank etsy for the platform, advertising and support that has made my products a worldwide success.
