Hand-sewing Lycra, Scale Footwarmers, And A Corset!

Mermaid Tail Progress

Gipsy Dharma Goodness!

My good friend Morticia Mermaid got a present from her man last week – some of the coveted Gipsy Dharma boots! She let me try on a pair, though I didn’t lace them to fit, so no pics of me wearing them. Instead, here’s a couple of Morticia instead!

She got several pairs in different colors, but I think the black is her favorite! ❤

I really like how adjustable they are! You lace up the various panels to fit your legs! 🙂 Just feast your eyes on that skin-tight, buttery-soft elfen goodness!

And since they have a zipper, once you have all the laces adjusted, putting on and removing them is so quick!
