Recent[ish] works...  

Red buttersoft leather corset with a necklace I made. All I want to do lately is make these necklaces! <3 them.

A fun experiment with color. =] & fan lacing. =]

Leather. Mmmm. Just for my friends over at Peta. A strange construction, due to the treatment of the leather [glossy black on one side, sueded red on the other.]

OMG b00bz. I have awesome customers.

Really interesting corset for a male customer, made to accommodate two different sized breast forms, laces in the front, zips in the back.

Just for fun. =] I like frogs too much, maybe?

A custom red leather based on the first photo posted.

Love the way this corset shimmers, like some kind of brocade mercury.

Last, but certainly not least, what I affectionately named the "Barbie" corset, due to it's pinkness. Totally lined in the pink color seen on the binding. I must remind myself that working with color can be fun. =]

Anyone here going to Convergence 13? Kent & I are taking a vacation [!!] and will be there. So, if you see us, come say hello! Ask me for a fabulous new Moo card. I don't think I will know anyone there, haha. We look something like this:

Yayyyyyyy vacation!
Can any Portlanders recommend fabric stores worth visiting, or perhaps a spectacular pizza joint? Mmmm. Pizza.
Current Mood: Wanting the nachos.

PS: Portland Pizza
There's a place adjacent to the gigantic Powell's Books (at 1005 W. Burnside) that's really good. I encourage you to check it out. My friend Sean and I went while we were there and really liked it.

Have fun!

You are like Jesus with a sewing machine. and the hottest chick in the universe. (It's unanimous in my house.)

I love your work! Someday hopefully you can dress me up and Pascale can record the photographic evidence. :)

Yes! I want this to happen! I'm afraid if I took measurements now, you'd lose a shitton of weight before I could actually make something for a shoot. Yarg! But yes, eventually, this will happen!

I heart red and black!

And you'll be out of town for the fiber arts festival! Drats! Oh well, you'll be having a much better time in Portland!
Cicatrix Designcicatrixdesign on May 17th, 2007 06:13 pm (UTC)
Damn, I didn't even know it was coming up. Next year perhaps?
Rebel Girleclypsia on May 17th, 2007 06:26 pm (UTC)
Its every two years. My friend Lisa was telling me about it. Apparently she says that there is really great fabric to be had and she can spend two days there just looking at fabric!

Here's the link:


As she was telling me about it I thought, "Wow Kate would probably love to go!" I think I will probably go this year and I will let you know how it is!
Cicatrix Design: [.ink.]cicatrixdesign on May 17th, 2007 06:37 pm (UTC)
Ha, of course, every two years. *shakes fist*
If you go, I want a full report!

Nachos? Why didn't say anything yesterday?!?! NACHOS!
Cicatrix Design: [.pink.]cicatrixdesign on May 17th, 2007 06:58 pm (UTC)
I know! I'm just trying [trying, not necessarily succeeding] to eat less of the awesome nacho goodness. Rest assured, I was really close to having a to go order of Anita's nachos waiting for you. But, somehow, I resisted. Somehow.

I love the "brocade mercury" corset, it looks like it has a life of it's own.

Hi, sorry for the intromision, do you have corset commision? (I'm from spain :D). Do you have a catalog or something?
Your work is very amazing!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry for my bad english :D
Cicatrix Design: [.purple.]cicatrixdesign on May 30th, 2007 03:43 pm (UTC)
I do not have a catalog since each corset is a totally custom design for the customer.
Thank you so much!
