Another link to my alternative clothing blog. Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone!
Apologies if you’ve found my site down for the last few days – technical server glitch involving a power cut. Anyway, I’m back! Just letting you know I’ve posted another blog on my alternative fashion blog site here: http://oshuncreations.tumblr.com/
This one is all about warm and snuggly winter coats.
Just a quick link to my alternative fashion blog, where I’ve written about keeping warm and some lovely handmade shawls.
I hope 2014 brings all you wish for
I’ve started the new year with a brand new shop! www.JustABitDifferent.co.uk is now up and running and selling alternative clothing for adults and kids. You may remember that www.Oshun.co.uk used to sell a mix of my handmade clothing and other quirky brands, but recently links to my Etsy shop. So I’ve decided to keep my handmade and vintage brand Oshun on Etsy, and start a new shop for the clothing by Phaze, Susu Mama, Hell Bunny, Feu Follet, Poisen Industries, Strangeways and others. I’m very excited to be re-visiting this business and hope it expands this year. I’ll be adding more stock soon and will be regularly putting items at a reduced price for a limited time, so please join www.facebook.com/OshunCreations for news and updates.
Well, I’ve stopped being completely distracted by that amazing Sherlock episode and will now post this post!
When looking for inspiration for my clothes, I usually look to history – anything from the last century and further back. However the 1920s and 30s are recently starting to take my notice…..
I don’t know why, but I’ve gone off Eddie Izzard a bit lately. Maybe it’s because he was being a little too boastful about his wonderful mind when he was interviewed on the Last Leg earlier this year. Or maybe it’s his politics. I watched the dvd with an open mind though…
You can’t fail to notice Lilith, about a third of the way up the hill on Glastonbury High Street; its shop window display is always stunning and draws you in, but beware….
I loved Robin Hood and it is definitely my favourite kids BBC drama (well, up to the point where they stupidly killed off Marian). It took a couple of episodes to get into it, but I really enjoyed Merlin as well (forgetting the last episode which contains the most stupid decision in BBC drama history). So now we have Atlantis…
I’ve decided to keep a separate blog just for Oshun updates and posts about alternative fashion. My latest one is a little about the making of my Khaleesi costume; currently selling well for Halloween. Have a look here.
Super heroes are bound to be a common sight at Halloween this year. I loved kick-ass and can’t wait to see the sequel. I also thoroughly enjoyed Batman a few years ago, but apart from that, I can’t say I’m a big fan of super hero comics or films. Never-the-less, they make a perfect costume opportunity, and so I’ve gathered a few of my favourites from the hand-made community of Etsy….
