Post your favourite accessories, you know the drill
and end dump. I'm such a sucker for Cirith Ninniach's stuff, it's so gorgeous
Please no 'omg selfposting is bad!' like in the last thread, self posting isn't even bad as long as it's a genuine contribution.
To be fair, most the stuff I have is saved from cgl or tumblr so I don't even have the source.
She seems a little on the expensive side to me. Is it actually worth it? I really like the mourning brooches for example but $40 seems a bit much if it's taobao quality.
at her booth, she (or an assistant?) told me she casts her items by hand. they do feel fairly solid, and i am sure it is a fair price, but i personally would rather save up for a more unique piece of hers.
by contrast, i have found Moss Marchen's metal to be taobao tier. i doubt she casts her own items, since i can easily find the components she uses on Chinese sites. the workmanship is still good, but also more easily replicatable because of the mass-manufactured components. VooDoooDolly's felt more substantial in comparison.
not sure if that helps, but it is my personal opinion, having seen both at cons in person.
It is definitely worth the quality. She's in my comm so I get to see a lot of her stuff first hand and it's not at all taobao quality.
>mfw I want pic related but can't afford it right now
"waterfall neck corset" or "gothic neck corset" are good search terms. i have not found that particular one for sale, sadly.
I love this bag. I wish I could make a coord to go well with it.
The best items Moss Marchen does are the more handmade things like the corsages and the embroidery necklaces though. You can't get that kind of quality hand work from Taobao.
agreed. and the designs of the assembled stuff (where you can find the same individual components on taobao) are still distinctive to her style, and can be worth the price if you like it and cannot make your own.
Ok, but at the same time there's only a certain level of distinction you can achieve when using wholesale/non-copyright materials. They are nice, but overhyped in my opinion. I've always wondered why the rosaries cost what they do considering they can be made by anyone with minimal jewelry skills. The parts you can get from Ebay/Etsy for pretty cheap.
The MM embroidery necklaces ARE worth the price, however. I've seen them in person and they appear to be very high quality. I agree with >>8730480 on that regard.
But speaking of embroidery jewelry, HNNGH for "My Inspiration" pieces (pic related). I want all of them.
i think part of the hype is because of the aura around the designer. her floord shots showcase her products beautifully, she hosts events, is not involved in drama, things like that. sometimes the brand name is worth the price to people.
(i am in agreement with you, just speculating on the cost/popularity of the rosaries.)
Finally, our burgerlita prayers have been answered!

elements,H has this line of cat mask jewelry. thought the cat ladies (and gents) of /cgl/ might enjoy them.
Cheeseburger backpack, cheeseburger backpack!
If you can make custom fullsize hats, I'm super interested. The only stuff you can ever find for commission/sale is bonnets, minihats and tricorns, but I've been looking for fullsize felted boater and bergere hats.

Looks nice and relatively inexpensive, but I have to wonder how fragile they are.
waiting patiently for this girl to add these to her store. usually everything she makes is super sweet, but i'm in love with these.
