Becoming my mother....

My mom raised my around crafts of all kinds when I was growing up, she was (at various times) a quilter, seamstress, knitter, spinner, and fabric marbler. We spent lots of time at craft fairs and set up at tables selling her various wonderful wares - during my teen years she even worked at a yarn store where she taught classes (one of her patterns is even featured in the beloved stitch n' bitch book!).
I was lucky enough to have her teach me a lot about the various forms of crafting growing up (although I didn't realize it at the time), which helped to lay the groundwork for me to continue crafting in my adult years. Plus it's great to be able to call her up and ask her questions whenever I don't know how to do something or I try out a new technique!
Now, my dear friends, we come to the part of our story where we get down to the nitty, gritty of how this shop (in its current form) came to be.
I've had a long held love for all things vintage, retro and reproduction - with a particular fondness for the 20s-50s. I also began cosplaying in 2014 (as Smaug from the Hobbit!) and I discovered a deep love for both cosplay and competing with my cosplays. I've since managed to swing two best in show wins, one first place and one Judges choice <3
I particularly enjoy creating alternate history cosplays that interpret well known characters in a completely new way - I started with a ballgown version of Iron Man, then moved to an Elizabethan version of Poison Ivy, then a Rococo version of Hades from Disney's Hercules.
In 2018 I realized I could take this love and transform it into an etsy shop with a focus on vintage inspired nerd accessories that are perfect Dapper Day <3 I'm always open to new suggestions and custom orders, so make sure you send me a message if you have an idea youd like to see become a reality!

I know you will love the amazingly fun, retro goodies I’ll make for you, however if you are for any reason unhappy with your order, please reach out to me so I can make it right.

Due to the nature of being a small business home business, I am unable to issue refunds for buyer errors. All items are listed with measurements and approximations of size, however we all come in lots of shapes and sizes, so I highly encourage measuring yourself for perfect fit.
Any errors in shipment/items on my part will, of course, be remedied at my cost.

Additionally, due to my fast crafting and shipping time, cancellations on items can only be accepted within the first 24 hours assuming the item has not already been shipped out. Items cannot be refunded or cancelled after they have been shipped.
I make, pack and ship all items myself.
All domestic items will be packed up and shipped out in 1-3 business days via first class mail with tracking for fascinators and small items. Larger items vary by piece and are specified within the listing. Delivery is generally 2-4 days after the item is shipped.

International items are shipped first class within 1-3 business days. Tracking is not provided due to the high cost of international tracking. Items generally arrive within 4-6 weeks, depending on international location.
International buyers, please note:
- Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyers responsibility.
- Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.
- These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight or shipping company or when you pick the item up, do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.

Here is a link to give you the approximate costs (you will need to cut and paste this link):

I will not list items as a gift on the customs form, unless the item is truly a gift from my company to you. Items will be listed at full retail cost on the customs form.

Items are shipped to the address listed on file with Etsy, so please ensure that this information is up to date before placing your order. I unfortunately cannot replace/reship items that are sent to an incorrect address.
