oh dear. :)  

I have the shmexy black pinup girl dress. I just got this from J Peterman (and it’s SO CUTE). Now Pinup Girl Clothing has this dress in stock.

So the question is: do I get it, and totally rock the pinup look at NYCC, or, er, not?

oh crap! They’ve got the swallow-embroidery dress AND the sailor swing dress in my size right now too! O NOES WHAT WILL I DOOOOOOOOOOOO!

(eta: oh. hell. i misread, the swallows dress is sold out. perhaps I should buy the retro rockabilly diner dress in a medium, which would fit if I lost 15 pounds, and hang it on the fridge. :) (But no: “We work with what we have,” a friend of mine was once told by a saleswoman as she held up a dress against herself and thought “If I lost ten pounds…”)

Hrm. The J Peterman dress is pink, so probably I do not need two dresses in pink, so as much as I adore the Paris dress *probably* if I was going to rock NYCC with the pinup look I should not do pink twice. (This does not stop me from staring covetously at this one, which is black (or grey, anyway) and red like the one I’ve already got. Except totally different from that one…) Actually, I’m thinking one day I should do vintage jeans & a sailor shirt… *flails, but flails happily*)

Start writing dieselpunk, write them off on your taxes as a research expense.

I wasn't aware of Dieselpunk, but this just makes so much sense.

Except there's no taxes on writers in Ireland, so I can't. :)

Dieselpunk, however <3

I adore the swallow dress. And! Your hair takes pin curls. Obviously, the only thing to do is buy all of them.

It would be wrong not to.

The swallow dress is actually the one I'm *most* likely to get, because it strikes me as the most wearable-around-town. But oh, the other two, too...

I'm going to have to learn to do a couple other 40s hairstyles, if I keep this up. *fumblefingers at my hair*

I love all of these dresses....

I must now say that I am sad I cannot make it to NYCC. I would love to see you rock this out so freakin' hard...
kitmizkit on August 12th, 2011 03:54 pm (UTC)
I too am sad you can't make it to NYCC!
Lady Doomlithera on August 12th, 2011 03:55 pm (UTC)
SDCC, PAX and NYCC would just be too much, even for me. *hugs*
kitmizkit on August 12th, 2011 03:56 pm (UTC)

No, no, I know, not really, but :) *hugs*
Lady Doomlithera on August 12th, 2011 03:57 pm (UTC)
But I'm an Enforcer! I can't skip PAX!

Like I said, we just have to get you out here instead. Or maybe next year I'll be able to go visit you...
kitmizkit on August 12th, 2011 04:03 pm (UTC)
Either of those things would be equally awesome. I wish I rated high enough to get invited to PAX or ECCC, but, well. :)
Lady Doomlithera on August 12th, 2011 05:12 pm (UTC)
Write a video game? I dunno. PAX is weird and ECCC, well, who knows. That show is growing so fast, man.

Can't believe I did it but I'm going to miss NYCC by a weekend :-(

When is NYCC? (I suppose I could look it up myself, but that makes it less conversational and I never get to converse with you!)
kitmizkit on August 12th, 2011 05:36 pm (UTC)
October 13-16!
hegemony hedgehogagrimony on August 14th, 2011 07:01 am (UTC)
oooh! You'll probably be way too busy, but assuming I have income at the time, I could likely make my way down to the city to meet up for a meal or some such!
kitmizkit on August 14th, 2011 08:18 am (UTC)
Since at this very moment I have nothing specific scheduled, I can make you my first potential NYCC date! :)
hegemony hedgehogagrimony on August 17th, 2011 03:31 pm (UTC)
Woo hoo!

Is this event in New York City? I am confused as usual.
kitmizkit on August 14th, 2011 08:20 am (UTC)
It is! It is the annual New York City Comic Con, where I will be going to shill my wares. And wear pinup girl clothes :)

I adore the shoes the model is wearing with the swallow dress. I'd buy those and wear them. Also SewDaily was offering a tutorial or something about sewing pinup fashions. (My mother calls me a hippie. Mainly because I like jeans and fabulous billowy shirts and neat boots.)
kitmizkit on August 14th, 2011 10:56 am (UTC)
I would never fit in any of their shoes, so I don't even hardly look at them. :)

I just ran across this coat and thought of you! I, of course, want one for myself, too. Like whoa.
GM Ceosannaceosanna on August 17th, 2011 12:16 pm (UTC)
Also, I am bummed that you'll be within driving distance when I'll be in Italy. I will tell friends going to NYCC to stop and pick up some of your books, though!

Thanks for the links- I really dig some of the clothing :).
