These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

Reminds me I need to buy something to cut the steel boning I've got sitting on my craft table into proper lengths....

I sent a clearer image to Jay, obviously... He can actually *read* my scribbled margin notes.

11th Apr 2006, 17:33

Geodyne says:

Hee. So chic, yet So wrong.

11th Apr 2006, 17:33

bronxelf says:

I plan for it to be 31 flavours of wrong.

11th Apr 2006, 17:34

Geodyne says:

And this is why I love you.

11th Apr 2006, 17:34

bronxelf says:


It's gonna be completely off the hook.

11th Apr 2006, 17:35

will you bring / wear it over here..

I'll find a venue if you do..

11th Apr 2006, 20:37

bronxelf says:

Yes, and I already have one.

I will be bringing all three of my corsets with me, actually.

11th Apr 2006, 20:37

Trav says:

Decided on a color scheme yet?

May we assume there will be pictures once it's ready?

11th Apr 2006, 20:44

bronxelf says:

Yep. It's black, red, and white.

11th Apr 2006, 20:45

I know the place *evil grin*

11th Apr 2006, 20:46

bronxelf says:

I can think of some good reasons to wear it.

11th Apr 2006, 20:56

yes, but you don't need me for them (at least I hope you don't *grins*)

There are a couple of public places I'd like to take you dressed like that. I'll find something interesting to wear too, of course, and we'll have to get Geodyne into something interesting as well...


11th Apr 2006, 21:12

bronxelf says:

Well Geo *should* fit into my corsetry. She's shorter than I am but she's slightly bigger in the chest.

No, I dont know how she doesn't fall on her face, either.

11th Apr 2006, 21:58

Gael says:

ROFL ... but that might be the wine

11th Apr 2006, 22:07

bronxelf says:

No, it's just a great visual.

I just have to hope that when I lace her in she's not smothered by her own breasts.



"I think she means it's too tight."


11th Apr 2006, 22:10

Gael says:

I've got to be bigger than the both of you, thinking emerald/racing green ?

11th Apr 2006, 22:12

bronxelf says:

I don't know if you are or not, I don't recall staring at your chest when I met you. :)

I'm bringing my black and silver one, the black and periwinkle and the black/red/white one as well. I think you're too tall to fit into one of my corsets anyway.

but if you send Jay good measurements I can guarantee you'll pay less than you would in the UK.

11th Apr 2006, 22:13

Gael says:

5 7, double Dway too tall ...

11th Apr 2006, 22:16

bronxelf says:

Well you're the same size in the chest as Geo (Im only a D), but yeah WAY too tall for one of mine.
It;s the height-- you look more proportionate than we do.

11th Apr 2006, 22:17

Gael says:

unfortunately I've got the 'child-bearing' hips (and thighs) to match : )

11th Apr 2006, 22:23

bronxelf says:

I got the hips, and I didn't even have kids.

You at least have the height. I have a dead on hourglass shape,but at only 5'2.5" tall.

11th Apr 2006, 22:25

Gael says:

what goes on the bottom half?
NB I am woman who lives in jeans and sweats ...

11th Apr 2006, 22:38

bronxelf, on boingo says:

generally, whatever you want.

11th Apr 2006, 22:42

yourhermione says:

I have bodices that would fit, but no corsets, so I can't help on that front.

oh, and you BETTER send me pictures.

11th Apr 2006, 23:56

Viv says:

is anywhere ready for this?

12th Apr 2006, 00:24

Trav says:

Viv, my question is if any_one_ is ready for this. I'm not, but I'm certainly willing to give it my best. ;)

12th Apr 2006, 02:03

silar31 says:

The Elf, and Teh Geo. In corsets.


12th Apr 2006, 02:23

There are a couple of places that we'll have great fun in - it'll depend on the day.

believe me, if they're not ready they'll learn fast...

Think we should try and rope Gael in though

And of course there'll be photos...


12th Apr 2006, 08:53

Geodyne says:

Damn, I go home at *all* the wrong times. I'm weeping with laughter at this thread.

Gael, We do so need to try to have you in something suitable as well. BTW, I'm an F-cup. Although as it's on a really tiny frame, that's probably still the same size as your DDs. Couple that with small feet and so far as I can tell, my ass is the only thing keeping me from falling on my face.

I am, however, suspecting that The Elf may be right, and once I get this corset on I'll have a handy chin rest for the remainder of the night...

12th Apr 2006, 09:18

Gael says:

Dhamaka says "We should try and rope Gael in" ROFL
Geo F? Kudos ; ) Is this the equivalent of a male "Mine's bigger than yours" conversation?

12th Apr 2006, 10:26

Geodyne says:

Oh hell no.

Surely it's a "wish mine weren't bigger than yours" conversation. You want them, they're yours. Or we can share, like the hair.

12th Apr 2006, 10:29

Gael says:

I think I'm getting the better deal then, kinda like you get the back-end of the pantomime horse ; )

12th Apr 2006, 10:30

Steve says:

"You want them, they're yours. Or we can share, like the hair." if you need a hand...

12th Apr 2006, 10:34

Gael says:

I'll need several hands if I'm going to get a corset on ; )

12th Apr 2006, 10:36

Steve says:

and a shoe horn :)

12th Apr 2006, 10:38

Geodyne says:

Steve, we haven't even *got* to the boots yet...

12th Apr 2006, 11:07

Steve says:

Backs out of the room slowly before he gets into trouble

12th Apr 2006, 11:36

bronxelf says:

Gael: No worries. *I* can get you into a corset. Only two hands and one knee needed,

Just hang on to that table over there. Tight.

kinda like you get the back-end of the pantomime horse ; )

*falls sover laughing*

Geo- your boots or mine?

12th Apr 2006, 15:18

Geodyne says:

Er....your boots top mine totally; but both, I guess. Mine may have higher heels, depending on which ones I wear.

12th Apr 2006, 16:11

bronxelf says:

I doubt it. The ones you're referring to are 4".

*my next comment has been censored for the good of all*

12th Apr 2006, 16:13

Geodyne says:

OK, you're right. Mine are also 4". For some reason I thought yours were 3-3.5.

Yours are still WAY cooler than mine, though.

12th Apr 2006, 16:31

bronxelf says:

If I can *GET* them. *sigh* this is such a pain in the ass.

12th Apr 2006, 17:06

I've spent ages looking for a pair of what my friend Vim calls f*ck-me boots. Still can't manage to find anything that fits the bill...

but the dates and venues for the corset night are nearly firm now...

13th Apr 2006, 11:43

bronxelf says:

Which corset? I have 3....

And I finally got party shoes sorted.

13th Apr 2006, 11:46

you're bringing them all over so we can decide on the night!

*NEEDS shoes

13th Apr 2006, 11:47

bronxelf says:

Oh Im bringing *everything*.
