The Daily Dress Comes To An End!

Well folks, it’s official: The Daily Dress has ended! As fun as it was, I must admit that I was getting a little bored of posting pics of myself and coming up with poses every single day! Also, my photographers were growing weary. (Thank you T & B, you were both fantastic!) So, it has come to a bittersweet close, with a total of 40 dresses! (How convenient, I just love when things wrap up nice and neat like that 🙂 )

To celebrate, I went out today and… BOUGHT MYSELF A BRAND NEW DRESS! Well, 2 actually. Here’s one of them. The second one has a pattern made of cats on it… SO AWESOME! But this one is pretty rad too, and made for some excellent Sunday night dinner attire 🙂

Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed my collection! I’ll be sure to add any new dresses that come in to my life and keep you posted 😉

Thanks for sticking it out with me! Recap is below.

Squirrels, Cats, Gnomes… & The Daily Dress Update

TGIF everyone! Fridays just never really get old do they?

This rascal had an awesome start to his Friday, caught him eating out of my discarded peanut butter jar this morning on my way out! I bet it was an incredible taste experience for the little guy! I mean he already loves nuts, but in the form of peanut butter… image his pure delight? HAPPY FRIDAY SQUIRREL FRIEND!

Another busy week for me… but aren’t they all? I finished up 600 buttons for NYC Pride and had lots of Etsy orders to ship out – plenty of bottle openers & pocket mirrors from the ol’ Etsy shop! My Ryan Gosling merch has been a big seller online recently – so if you’re a fan of that lovely man, be sure to check it out! I had a sick day on Wednesday, so I stayed home and ordered plenty of supplies to stock up my craft room! SO MUCH FELT is on its way from Taiwan (I have the best supplier over there) so there are many characters to be sewn for my totes once it arrives! I should post some of those on Etsy soon… okokok I promise after the next show that I will, since so many of you have been asking!

In other exciting news, The Daily Dress is almost all wrapped up! I have one dress saved for St. Patty’s tomorrow, and then I am buying a celebratory dress to finish it up on Sunday! “But Lisa, how do you protect all those fine dresses from evil thieving dress gnomes?” you might ask. Well, don’t worry, I do in fact have a system in place. Meet my 2 body guards, who alternate between day and night shifts of watching over the pile of dresses. They’re pretty intimidating, and so far no one has attempted to get too close… (well there was one person who managed to steal 3 of my dresses, but I owed her in exchange for her bottle opener helper services so the guards let it slide.) So don’t worry, the dresses are safe! And I will post the Daily Dress recap later this weekend 🙂

Greta, dress guard #1: her super power is the ability to be super comfortable any place, any time. (Though I am not sure how that helps fight off the dress gnomes…)

Rico, dress guard #2: this guy is smaller than the average cat and has a cute face, but don’t let it fool you – his claws expand to easily 6″ long are and constantly sharpened on my couch and the side of my bed. He also suffers “short man” syndrome, so he feels the need to constant bite your ankles to provoke a fight. Beware.

Anyway, I have a craft binge ahead tonight, St. Patty’s celebrations with some super cool ladies tomorrow evening, and dress shopping and a dinner date on Sunday with B – so stoked! Hopefully I get lots of mustaches sewn tonight, because I am completely sold out from the last show! I got 4 done last night, so, it’s slowly filling back up… except I need at least 50… SO MUCH TO SEW! Anyone want to be my assistant sewer? For free? I will give you tea and of course an unlimited supply of mustaches!

I also have a NEW SUPER EXCITING DISPLAY for the next show under way, but I can’t show you pictures yet… It just keeps getting bigger and better! WORLD TAKEOVER CONTINUES…

Can I just say, I AM LOVING THIS FANTASTIC WEATHER, might try to sneak in a quick bike ride around the ravine tonight before dinner and ‘stache sewing… off I go!

Have a Happy St. Patty’s everyone!!!

4 More Sleeps ’til ComiCon & The Daily Dress(es)

It’s been a few days, so first I need to catch y’all up on The Daily Dress – Saturday, Monday & today.

I’m running out of dresses that I can wear to work, and pretty much only have bummin’ around the house ones or party ones left! So what does that mean? I’m almost done with The Daily Dress! This is bitter-sweet for me, since it was a blast and a fun challenge, but I am running out of “poses” and my photographers are growing weary… I’ll have to do one final, official count of all my posts and perhaps reward myself with purchasing a brand new dress?!?! 😀 Me thinks this is a genius idea…

Anyway, I have a show this weekend, Toronto ComiCon, so I’m super excited! If you’re coming to visit, make sure to stop by booth A47 (floor plan can be downloaded here) and try on a mustache or two! *(If you haven’t seen my mustache fan album on Facebook, be sure to check it out!) This year is going to be the BEST year for shows I’ve ever had! Now that I’m all rebranded as nerdbiskit, (formerly Miss Belle’s Handmade Accessories) I am fully prepared to take over the world – I have about 15 shows on deck for 2012, so I’m going to be super busy, but I love every minute of it 🙂

Over the weekend, I was busy working away on some last minute items for the show – specifically, pocket mirrors! I also worked on packaging for them and am pretty excited to start selling ’em! You can see all the designs on my Etsy shop, but here is a sneak preview:

And also, here’s my test set up for this weekend:

As you can see, I am rockin’ a nice full table all to myself – I could actually even spread out to 2… but maybe that will be next year’s feat 😉 I’m super excited that my lovely assistant will be joining me on Saturday and can’t wait to see some familiar faces in the crowd! 4 more sleeps! 😀

Oh, and don’t forget to check in tomorrow to see my weekly guest blogger, the fabulous fashion illustrator, Miss Wendy Ding!

Top Mustaches! & The Daily Dress(es)

Today I was supposed to be road-tripping to Ottawa with my boy, B, to visit some awesome palsies! But the weather forced us to reschedule for St. Patty’s weekend. I’m pretty bummed, but decided to make the best of it and cheer myself up by making a list of some MARVELOUS MEN WITH MUSTACHES! 🙂 See, easy fix. Simple things always work best. Pass this on to any pals you have that are feeling bummed about winter too. Hopefully the warmth of these ‘staches will help to warm their hearts and souls ❤ Or at least provoke a chuckle or two?

I tried to use one example from a variety of mustache styles! Feel free to share your own fave ‘stached men in the comment section below! ENJOY!

 

#10. RON JEREMY. Ew. Rocks the Porn ‘Stachegreasy and ratty. No form, no styling aids necessary. Messy and unkempt.

 

#9. JACK LAYTON. This one is called the Proud Canadian fully gray, or salt & pepper in colour. Neatly clipped; must be worn by a strong, caring, inspirational man in power. Rest in peace, sir.

 

#8. FREDDIE MERCURY. This is a classic Copstacheextends just beyond the corner of the mouth, and down slightly. Trimmed short. Accompanied by aviator shades and male tank top or cop uniform.

 

#7. JOHN WATERS. Can I tell you how much I love this man and his bizarre movies? And his bizarre mustache… know as the Pencil Mustachenarrow, straight and thin as if drawn on by a pencil, closely clipped, outlining the upper lip, with a wide shaven gap between the nose and mustache.

 

#6. BURT REYNOLDS. Um… I am too distracted by this terrifying photo to even talk about his mustache right now… moving on.

 

#5. HULK HOGAN. HorseshoeOften confused with the Handlebar Mustache, the horseshoe was possibly popularized by modern cowboys and consists of a full mustache with vertical extensions from the corners of the lips down to the jawline and resembling an upside-down horseshoe. Also known as “biker mustache”.

 

#4: ROLLIE FINGERS. Solid example of the Handlebarbushy, with upward pointing ends, sometimes curled.

 

#3: CHARLIE CHAPLIN. Toothbrushthick, but shaved except for about an inch in the center; also associated with Adolf Hitler.

 

#2: SALVADOR DALI. ‘Nuff said. Look at those glorious peaks – this style of ‘stache is even named after him. Dalínarrow, long points bent or curved steeply upward; areas past the corner of the mouth must be shaved. Artificial styling aids needed.

 

#1. TOM SELLECK. Has he ever NOT rocked this beautiful lip sweater? I can’t remember him without it…I believe this is classified as the Hungarian – Big and bushy, beginning from the middle of the upper lip and pulled to the side. The hairs are allowed to start growing from up to a maximum of 1.5 cm beyond the end of the upper lip.

 

 

Anyway, I feel better now. Nothing like a good mustache to brighten the day! I am off to craft, so I’ll leave you with The Daily Dress – from yesterday and today!

Friday Fun Times!

 

Saturday ‘Stache Surfin’!
