We just quickly wanted to say thank you for your continued support right now. We’re making new Face Masks all the time to keep up with demand. As you may or may not know we end up with remnants of fabric that are too small for waistcoats or skirts but too big to justify throwing away. This has been a great way for us to give purpose to that fabric and reduce waste. It has also allowed us to extend our charity to healthcare heroes. We are donating a mask for every mask sold and thanks to you, we are in the process of donating 42 masks to Abbotsford Hospital so that healthcare workers have something to wear grocery shopping or to offer to patients therefore saving surgical masks for their intended purpose. Thank you so much for helping us make that possible. You rock!
We’re coming up on a month of practicing self-isolation. Some of you have been at it even longer than that. The cabin fever is setting in. We miss our friends and being able to wear fabulous outfits to fabulous parties but we have to stay strong and keep up the social distancing. Going out now will make everything worse and we’d be putting a lot of people at risk. We could easily overwhelm the healthcare system if there was a spike in COVID-19 cases. Nobody wants that. But still, we really miss dressing up and dancing. If only there was some way of doing that at home…
Oh wait, there is! It’s so important to take guidelines seriously but it’s also incredibly important to do silly things at home so everything doesn’t feel doom and gloom all the time. What we propose is having a costume dance party over Skype or Zoom. Come up with a theme. Make cocktails or mocktails. Play some good dance music and party with your pals. Here’s some ideas:
- Steampunk Party – Research Victorian cocktails and see if you can make them with stuff you have at home. Play some electro-swing. Put on your favorite corset and waistcoat and see if you can party like it’s 1899.
- Vampire Party – Dim the lights, light the candles. Play some Bauhaus (if you’re a modern vampire) or maybe some Bach if you’re an Anne Rich vampire. Wear a poet shirt and frock coat and pour yourself some red wine. Be sexy and forlorn.
- Psychedelic Rainbow Party – Wear sparkly leggings and prism goggles. Listen to electronic music.Turn the lights on and off really fast to simulate a strobe light.
