The Sunday Bumday

So we have been putting up some #SundayBumday photo's of our items on our Facebook page.

Every sunday for the last month, its sort of coincided with advent a little and I am thinking of continuing this for a little while.
Here are some that I have put up already for your viewing pleasure ;)

Felix Cane in her Booty Bedazzled shorts

Betty in our Spider knickers Version 2

Mara in our Twerk knickers and Diana Top

Betty in our Booty Bedazzled shorts

And the Lovely Julie (Champayne) from Perth with one of the leopard print samples I made while still living in Australia.

Here is the very first #sundaybumday photo taken by Yoko Taketani wit our Booty short made for her

I am hoping to give my customers a chance to show their #SundayBumday photo's via Facebook and maybe later on my website.
I like to see women or men of all shapes and sizes having fun with this, giving us a chance to celebrate everyone.

Thanks for reading

Personalise your bum or Bedazzle it

I have been wanting to do a simple line of knickers that you could personalize by adding your name in Swarovski crystals on the bum.
Or any other wording of course.
I named it Bedazzle it, because its easy and simple.

So I was trying to think of ways to get this out on the social media, into the world etc.

I am in Switzerland at the moment with possibly one of the strongest currency right now making it tricky to stay competitive in the market. 

When I saw that Felix Cane, possibly the most amazing lady ever is having a competition back in Perth where I picked up my fascination with Pole dance.
I wrote to find out if they would be interested in having me make some shorts for Felix and to take a #sundaybumday picture to promote the items. And I would then give the winner a pair of shorts with their chosen name/ word on them.

And yes so it happened, I was over the moon. 

But now the big work had to start, I had to make sure I could get all the things to them in time for photo's and before the competition.
I didn't want to let them down because they were doing me a huge favor, and I hoped that they would get something out if it as well.

All the things were ordered and everything was put into motion to get this done.
I even decided to order Gold and Black fabric to match the theme of the competition, making sure that what I will make for the winner and Felix of course, truly is a one off.
Here is the photo's before I send them off to Australia

And once she had taken her photo

She got the crystals to shine in the sun :)

Its quite a time consuming task gluing each single stone onto the shorts, and I don't think I could ever charge a hourly rate for it because no one would pay that for shorts. But at least I get spread some smiles and hopefully fun times with these items. And maybe people will look at my other items as well in the future.

Please email me with requests
I have order forms for studios or groups of people to be able to share the freight costs.

Anyway lots of love

Costumes for a group

At the start of the year I offered to make some pole Costumes for my pole class.
They were developing a routine and we performed it at the studio open day in April.

We all have different tastes in pole clothing, some of us are worried about certain parts of our body others not so much.
So I ended up bring fabric samples in to see what colours they liked, we all also had our favorites and they were different. But we got to agree on a colour set and I gave the group 5 different options in design they could choose from.

Here are some photos of us in these garments.

thanks to the ladies for letting me use the photos 
And thanks for letting me make these costumes :)

The Spider line pole dance clothing

I made this spider line of pole dance clothing, with 3 versions.

Number one, is very skimpy and sexy. 
And although Like it I am not sure I will sell many of them.

Number two, is a bit more fun but I am having to do some more things to the top and go over the patterns and sizing again.

And Number Three, to be honest is now my favourite.
I drew it as a simpler more covered version, and didn't think much of it at the time. But it has become my favourite and possibly the one I am more likely to keep making.

I gave two and three to a amazing friend of mine in Denmark to test and take some photo's of. And what she has come up with is great, I am now able to alter and perfect the patterns. And I also get some photos of a beautiful person posing in them.

Have a look.

My way

I have been dabbling in doing my own thing for ages, I have done Burlesque, Pole dance costumes and dance costumes. All while working or studying.
So why not venture out and start my very own label.
I have a bit of a love for lingerie and Pole dance of course, but that might only be the start.

I knew it was going to be hard to start something from not much, and I decided I would do it anyway. Since I had taken the hard road all my life this wasn't going to be any different.

While working for a Jewellery company as a Christmas casual in Arbon, I met a lovely lady that was a seamstress herself. She was a constant inspiration and always helped me along the way. It was great to have someone to bounce ideas off and also show her some stuff that I had learned over the years.

She was starting her label at the same time as me, hers being more of a up market clothing label we helped each other when we needed to.

This gave me the confidence and also backing of a person who has lived in Switzerland longer than me, and I could count on her honesty and help.

I am going to start with my Etsy store, see how that goes.
My main problem will be the strength of the Swiss franc, export will be tricky. People like cheap and cheerful but I am not planning on being that kind of label.
I am hoping to make good quality items with great fabrics that will last several washes and wears.

Once I have sold a few items I am also planning on making a Couture range, which will be limited edition. Probably more for the stage and performances.

I have had a photo shoot with a great lady called Mara to give people a idea of what these items look like on the body. She is not a pole dancer, but a great sport and circus performer with Gravity Riders.
And she did me a great favor posing on and off the pole. 

 I am also very grateful for the help I got from the team at K├╝hnis Augenoptik in Rorschach, for letting me use their in equipment and cellar to shoot.

I am hoping my general line will become a great source for people to use in the gym, circus or on the pole.
These are just the start I have more designs I would like to make reality but for now I have to earn some money first to be able to purchase more material.

there will be more in the future :)
