All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Corsetry As Art

I love corsets. I love the way they look, the way they feel and it's no surprise that they make great art.
1. Youth is Wasted Soap Lady portrait - Tinaimel
2. The Peacock Collector - Mizzdraconia
3. Chupacabra- Original painting - Slurkgirl
4. Neko GasMask Girl Vinyl Wall Art - pillboxdesigns

Whether you like your art abstract with a dark story or you prefer a little fantasy, the corset brings a dark and sultry feeling to the piece. As part of a portrait, it conveys the feeling of aristocracy and romance, or plastered on the wall in stark black, it speaks to a post apocalyptic counterculture. Sure you can wear a corset, but did you know you can hang one on the wall too.
