theverdantmuse's Shop Announcement

Hello there and welcome to the Verdant Muse, home of one of a kind and handmade tribal fusion themed adornment. :)

New release of pants planned for February 21st-ish, message me for more info! I will be focusing on vending this year but listing any leftover stock right after events! :)

Also running a special deal right now- purchase a deluxe ($125+) headdress and necklace, and get a coupon code for 15%, the pair- please message me first for the code! :)

NEW CUSTOM ORDERS are temporarily on hiatus, as I am likely to be moving away from full-time costuming (sadface) but please message me if you have a request. In my free time I plan to build up stock for occasional vending and love hearing requests on what you all wanna see in the shop and my vendor booth. The current gameplan is some simpler bra & belt sets, a brand new & very different belt line, and a cotton lycra pants design, plus revamping the skirt pattern I have for sale already (time for Madalene 2.0!).

Please check out my new & exciting project with ORACLE, WITCH AND MUSE- the combined artistry of Bold Oracle, Benne Gezeritt, and myself, the Verdant Muse. We just vended together at Tribal Revolution this summer and plan to make that a tradition! We also have a brand new website ( & are planning some collaborations and themed collections!

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS over $150 or so will require insurance, which in turn requires a costly shipping service. Message me if you've ordered from me in the past, I will continue to honor arrangements we have set up. All orders must comply with buyer/seller protection polices. Small items valued under $150 can still be sent first class.

RESERVES- If you are requesting an item or wish to reserve an item please be prepared to make a (25% or more, non-refundable) deposit/payment first. I cannot hold it for you until you can, apologies! :) Once payments begin, you will have 90 DAYS by default to pay off your order, but be sure to CONTACT ME if you need an extension. This job is still my full time gig at the moment, and I just can't afford to wait, apologies!

SHIPPING- I am now shipping TWICE per week- Tues and Fri afternoons (3 PM Pacific time). If you need your item to ship immediately, I can do that, just let me know! :)

CLEANING & CARE- Costume items should be spot cleaned ONLY and stored/transported with caution. You may hand wash them very gently and only occasionally. Please DO NOT dry clean them. :) Vintage sari pants should be washed on the gentle cycle or hand washed in cold water + vinegar to prevent bleeding, and hung to dry. Portable steamers work great for removing any wrinkles. Items made with new fabric (velvet skirts, stretch material & new silky prints) can be laundered as usual, though washing in cold water and hanging to dry is best.

REPAIRS- I do my best to make pieces as well as possible, but sometimes rings open, fabric tears, strands break, rhinestones fall out, the world is an imperfect place. I love the opportunity to fix things and make them right if things go awry. I'll charge a reasonable rate for fixes (and you pay the shipping both ways), but if it's my fault, I'll cover all the expenses. I stand by my work and my reputation! :)

My jewelry is (sometimes) on tour with Sharon Kihara, you can purchase it from her at workshops and shows around the world! :) I also have pieces for sale available at the Eye Atelier- An Enchanted Emporium and Extraordinary Studio, run by Amy Danielson of Bold Oracle in Taylor Falls, MN and jewelry for sale at NW Rockhounds in Seattle, WA.
