A week and a half ago, I wrote a post about the value of Pinterest for learning and sharing fashion and sewing related things. Any other interests could also be shared, of course, but I focused on fashion since we’re a sewing guild.
In that post, I used the Pinterest account or “board” of Peryn, a third year Costumes Studies at Dalhousie University, as an example to illustrate my points. I had only joined and didn’t have anything to share on my board.
Just eleven days later, though, I’m happy to say I have enough “stuff” “pinned” to share my Pinterest “board”!
Currently, a lot of the stuff pinned is related to fashion in some way or another. You can probably tell, though some might be a stretch like the Action Figures / Toys board. I do love all the beautiful sculptures and figurines on that board, but if you can believe it, it’s the fashion they’re wearing that’s of most interest. I have no plans to be buying or collecting any figures, as much as I’d love to. What might be harder to believe, though, is that I have ideas for garments to be made from the fashion most of the figurines are wearing, given many of them just look like scantily clad women. 😉
Maybe I should have put them on a “secret board” which I can control to only let certain people see, hahaha. Too bad that feature only came out a week after I posted the original article on Pinterest here. I thought it was a no brainer of a feature that had to exist when I wrote the original article, but I was wrong, apparently. It was too obvious a feature to have been present that I can’t seriously call myself a visionary for thinking it should have been there prior to the feature being released.
I hope you’ll check out my Pinterest board every now and then if you want to see what’s in my fashion library that’s shareable. Maybe you just want to see what’s on my mind recently when it comes to fashion, since there is a chronological display system, or new boards like Lolita stuff. You can do what’s called “follow” me, if you are a Pinterest user (free to sign up). Otherwise, you can just bookmark the link above in your browser and click on it again in the future.
You can also selectively follow only the boards with topics that you like within my account, like maybe the dresses board. I’m thinking not too many of you ladies in the guild, and other readers of this blog, would be too keen on fictitious character action figures, of which many could be classified as scantily clad women, hahaha! I should honestly warn you, though, that since I plan to design a fair bit of clothing for women that are going to be sexy, there might be the occasional scantily clad real woman on my boards. 😉
I hope you’ll enjoy my Pinterest boards and get some ideas from the stuff I pin on those boards. Many thanks initially to Peryn for all the stuff I “stole” from her collection to start mine. Please see my previous post for the new world order with social media and how it is honourable and complimentary to “steal” other people’s stuff!
As before, if you are an Atlantic Sewing Guild Member and you get or have a Pinterest Board you’d like to share, please leave its address or account name in the comments, or email to me. If we get a few more members’ boards, I’ll make a drop down menu with the list of them all. Also, if you’ve been on the site and found some Pinteresting boards you think the Guild members would like to perouse or follow, please also share them. They’re great for learning and inspiration, too!
p.s. Update from LA. I’ve just seen their Fashion District today for a bit and will have much more favourable reviews to write than NY’s one! I hope to go back for a full day soon, and write a full review after that!
