Hoyt's German Cologne

I bought a metal advertisement of Hoyt's German Cologne from a garage sale for a toonie recently. Creepy advertising with Victorian children and baby animals. More here

Faery Fashion


The belief that faeries kidnapped mortal children and left a faery substitute in their place is a recurrent theme in folk legend. Various reasons were given for the practice: the theft of beautiful, golden-haired children was to improve the faery stock; abducted mortal children could be used instead of faery children as a tribute to Hell; or the could be set to work as servants.
When a child was born, every effort was made to prevent a faery abduction. The threat was at its greatest until the baby was christened or sometimes, just until it sneezed, and numerous spells or charms were employed to ward off faery kidnappers.
In some households, every cupboard and drawer would be locked '... for it care is not taken the faeries will get in and hide in the drawers and presses.' A live coal might be placed in the baby's first bath, while, when dressed, the infant was turned three times heels over head, blessed and then turned upside down and shaken three times.

Peter Pan

Peter Pan, the boy who could never grow up.

"It's like this." She kissed him.

Bubbles of many colours made in rainbow water

It was then that Hook bit him.

"Yo ho, yo ho, the pirate life. The flag o' skull and bones..."

Thus perished James Hook.

Starkey becomes nurse for all the papooses

I woke up this morning and read the last thirty pages of Treasure Island, which I had put away for some time. It's the first day of summer! I want to dress up like an Indian mermaid pirate faery.

Those papooses are pretty stylish.

Male Bitch-Stick

Captain Hook is so fabulous, the pink shirt, the buckled shoes, the feathered hat, the little bows at the end of his pants, but most of all his double cigar bitch-stick

Princess Kelldar

Some of my favourite Disney princess outfits as illustrated by Kellila Yarwood. I like the peasant looks more than the super high-gloss-girly ones. Plus, some of my favourites of Kellila's own dress designs.

She is huge into cosplay, I am very impressed by her dress-making skills as well as her art.

Flowers and Ribbon

No other fictional character has a wardrobe like Candy Candy! Never watched this but I love all the frilly fun.

First Love

In the Golden Afternoon

you can learn a lot of things from the flowers, but especially in the month of June
