Wing shawl update!

Spent some time with Miss Lana Crooks aka Plushinator today - we got the new shawl pattern hammered out, now we are waiting on materials to build the prototype. Then we get together again and make more plans!

We are looking to do the first release this Fall. Most likely they will be made in small color editions with a handful available in each edition. These will be much more polished and awesome than the first ones i did last year- Lana is taking these to the next level with her ideas and tweaks. We both have busy schedules so it’s tough to find time to get together to work on these- but it WILL happen!

So please hang tight! We are scheming and planning- more info very soon!

SURPRISE, i put two wing shawls in the shop. I was going to keep these but…nah id rather they make someone else happy: http://missmonster.myshopify.com/
Sorry we didnt get better pics but it’s VERY cold outside!!Hand dyed 90” long wing wrap. Drapes over the shoulders or can be wrapped around your body. These are hand dyed with lasting high quality materials. Each wrap is one of a kind, no two will ever be the same. I’m offering these as i make them, you are buying the exact wrap pictured. They take awhile to produce but i will try to make them available as often as i can. All dyes and paints and been heat set.  The grey with purple wrap is 50/50 wool/polyester material. It has a small pewter bat skull button to close it. The skull is made by Miyu Decay. It buttons closed but is a little tight to get to button right. I made this wrap for my own personal use but i think im going to make a different one.The grey with red wrap with the more ragged edges is 100% wool. The rough edges won’t unravel but aren’t as clean/sharp as blended wool. It’s one of the early experimental wraps so it’s a tiny bit rough but still really neat looking. Do not machine wash or dry clean! Spot clean only with water, do not use solvents. The fabric is dyed and heat set but due to the handmade nature of this piece please treat it with care.

WING WRAP news: Just got off the phone with Lana Crooks and we are going to be working together to make more wing wraps! Given the popularity of the first wraps i wanted to team up with an art pal who knows far more about fiber/dye work than i do and can step these up even more. The design will go through a few improvements and tweaks, Lana has some fantastic input on how to make them so much cooler.

So! I will be making two more of the original wing wraps since i already had them planned. Those two will be available next week and i will announce a specific time/ date. After that Lana and i will start the collaboration process on the next phase of the wraps. If people can be patient, i can promise we will be producing some really amazing wings in early 2014!

I’m very happy that people love these so much and im excited to team up with Lana!

ok the ebay listing for the HUGE prototype wing piece i made is live!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=301033308128
I MUST stress that this is an experimental piece, it is NOT perfect! Please read the description carefully before bidding.

I will make more of these super huge style wings with a similar layering look as well as the smaller 90” wool ones that i just sold. These take a pretty long time to do and cost a good amount to make ( they burn through the fancy dye pretty fast!) but i love the look and would like to make more costume-y stuff.

And of course pleaaaaase do not bid if you cannot pay. I will not break up the cost into installments and i can’t wait a few weeks to be paid. Please remember this is my job so these auctions are my paycheck. We all like to get our paychecks on time! :)

This is a handmade wing shawl/wrap PROTOTYPE that i created to explore the patterns and techniques that would be ideal for my wraps. It is very much a rough + experimental piece! It is vital that the bidder understand that this is a prototype and has imperfections. It can still serve as a wearable piece but is heavier and more stiff than i wanted..also HUGE! So please do not expect perfection. I’m just selling this to cover the cost of this experimentation ( materials cost so much) and because i honestly dont know what im going to do with it. I think it could make someone else very happy.

It is made from dyed and hand painted felt layers. It measures 111” across. Do not machine wash or dry clean, spot clean by hand with cold water. Dye is heat set so it will last but do treat it with a little care.

This turned into a blanket more than the shawl it was meant to be… Also an experiment in fabric dyes and paints. Learned a lot, next one will be much better ( and smaller!) #wing #wrap #missmonster

EDIT: yes i will be making some for sale
