An Odd Bodkin Renaissance Shop Newsletter
Volume 2

In this Issue:

Production Time

Our current turnaround time is 6 - 8 weeks. However, we can accommodate a limited number of rush orders for bodices each week and for an additional fee. Our schedule is as follows:

One-week turnaround (ships 7-10 days from order date): add $50
Two-week turnaround (ships 14-21 days from order date): add $30

Consider these options when ordering a bodice for an event you are planning to attend the following month or ask about inventory items when you place your order. Sometimes we carry pre-made bodices in
standard sizes, but why stress at the last minute? Look at the list of upcoming faires on page two of this newsletter and save yourself some money by ordering two months ahead of time.


My Facebook fans already know that I've been busy in the past 2 months designing and creating brand new products which will soon be featured on the website. I will blog about each one of them in the
coming months, but I wanted to give you all a sneak peek of what's on the horizon!

  • Nighties - Two styles of nighties inspired by the glamour
    of the 1950's. One features a rouched bodice with neck ties and an
    attached wraparound circle skirt that ties in the front. The other has
    a Marilyn Monroe halter strap top with a wraparound circle skirt.

  • Aprons - The nighties were so much fun that I shifted the
    design into adorable aprons with various themes including schoolgirl.

  • Victorian Style Waist Cincher - Still in the early stages,
    I think that many of my Steampunk fans are going to be very excited!

  • Sweetheart Goddess Corset - Also in a very early stage of
    development, this strapless twist on the Goddess Bodice opens up the
    front and adds a sweetheart neckline .

  • Ruffled Tiered Skirts - Still in the design stage, I think
    this skirt style will be a wonderful accompaniment to our cropped

Keep in mind that most, if not all, of these designs were inspired and/or requested by clients, just like you. If you have an idea that you've always wanted, but can never find it in your size,
or in the colors you want, or it just doesn't exist yet, email me! For a fee, I can design something new, just for you and based on your style!

Fan Club Pictures

Many of my clients have been so kind as to send me pictures of themselves wearing their purchases. I've featured them in this photo album so you can see all the various ways folks are wearing their garb.
Check it out and if you'd like to be a part of it too, send me your pic and desired caption to!
