Something fun for Presenting in Spring!
Cosplay can be a passion!
Or it can be a way to enhance a personal experience.
In the BDSM setting – it may allow people to become bolder in a role or help them switch a mindset, bringing a touch of Humor and lightness to a scene. There is a certain amount of Childhood Joy that comes out when dressing up.
Touching that ‘Youth’ can keep you engaged and mentally astute.
What is your next scenario or Cosplay Outfit?
dievca is thinking about something with May Flowers – Mother Nature? A Sprite?
Is that an oxymoron?
Where can dievca find shapewear this elegant in fun colors?

For those April Showers!
Have you ever heard of the saying, “March comes in like a Lion and goes out like a Lamb”?
While the saying most likely started as a reference to astronomy, referencing the position of the constellations Leo (a lion) and Aries (a ram, or lamb) in the night sky — it quickly evolved into a succinct summation of March’s changing weather as the seasons change from winter to spring in the Northern Hemisphere.
Like many proverbs it can be traced back to Thomas Fuller’s 1732 compendium, “Gnomologia; Adagies and Proverbs; Wise Sentences and Witty Sayings, Ancient and Modern, Foreign and British.” Fuller compiled numerous proverbs and studied weather lore across many countries through the late 1600s and early 1700s.
North American colonists realized that the New World’s weather pattern was much like their native lands across England and surrounding countries, where extreme weather shifts could profoundly affect their livelihoods from one week to the next.
The Northern Hemisphere shares the same jet stream, providing similar swings in weather, in America as they do across Europe.
In Scotland they say, “March comes in with adders’ heads and goes out with peacocks’ tails.” An Adder is Scotland’s sole venomous snake. A timid creature and unlikely to bite unless threatened. Again, showing a feared image of winter, with the beauty and splendor the weather at the end of March can bring.
In the Netherlands, they say; “Maart roert zijn staart,” which means “March stirs its tail” — evidence of the variety and extremes that can come day to day this time of year.
Weather proverbs also originate from days gone by from almost every country in the world. But, only those with similar weather patterns usually hold true where you live.
As March closes – we can welcome the gentle kiss of
“April Showers which bring May Flowers”!

A B movie or B film is a low-budget commercial motion picture that is not an arthouse film. In its original usage, during the Golden Age of Hollywood, the term more precisely identified films intended for distribution as the less-publicized bottom half of a double feature (akin to B-sides for recorded music).
Mari Blanchard, was an American actress, known for her roles as a B movie femme fatale in American films of the 1950s and early 1960s. In the late 1940s, Blanchard was a successful print model and film extra. Blanchard began appearing in films after she was seen by a producer in an advertisement for bubble bath in 1950.
Blanchard soon found success as an actress. From 1951 to 1952, she took small roles in a number of films at MGM, RKO, and Paramount, until she was signed by Universal-International in 1952. Her first film at the studio was Back at the Front (1952). One of her most memorable roles was the Venusian queen, Allura, in the 1953 comedy Abbott and Costello Go to Mars. She starred in Destry (1954), a western with Audie Murphy. In 1955, she starred in “Escape From Fear”, an episode of the television series Climax! Her hottest and most glamorous film was The She-Devil in 1957.
In the 1960–1961 television season, Blanchard starred as Kathy O’Hara in the NBC Western series Klondike with Ralph Taeger, James Coburn, and Joi Lansing. She also appeared as Margarita Colinas with Cesar Romero in the Rawhide episode “Incident of the Stalking Death”. In 1963 she had a small but flamboyant role in the John Wayne film, McLintock!
After abandoning her film career upon the release of her final film, McLintock! in 1963, Blanchard retired, acting in just a few TV programs afterward. She was diagnosed with cancer in the 1960s. Following a long struggle, she died at the age of 43.

“This is such a short life that nothing can matter very much either one way or another. I have learned not to struggle but to flow along with the tide. If I am to be rich and famous, that will be fine. If not, what do riches and fame count in the long run?” – Anna May Wong
In the 1930s Anna May was named the “world’s best-dressed woman” by the Mayfair Mannequin Society of New York, cementing her position as an international fashion icon.
Presenting in a Suit with a Cloche hat might be an excellent change of pace for dievca.

The month of February is all about the color purple, with the birthstone being amethyst, and the flower a violet. But did you know that this color has a very rich and interesting history as to how it came to be such a popular color today?
One reason why it is such a prominent color in today’s society is that people of royal blood and power used to be the only ones who would be able to afford to wear it. From the dying process to the wardrobe, this beautiful color has had a role in society from royal representation, spiritual symbolism, and a wide effect on the world of current fashion trends.
EARLY PRODUCTION AND TRADE OF PURPLE DYE
You might guess that purple dye used to be made from natural plants and herbs such as lilac and lavender flowers, or berries such as grapes. Nope. It might seem a bit strange and gruesome, but during the ancient Greek era around 1,200 BC, purple dye was created by extracting it from sea snails—spiny dye-murex to be specific–and it took thousands of these little guys (supposedly 250,000 just for one ounce!) to dye different types of textiles. Instead of crushing and killing the snails to extract the purple dye, it could be collected by “milking” them. Then the dye would be put out in the sunlight to develop its hue—the longer the dye sat out in the sunlight, the more intense the purple shade. Because of the high labor cost of making such beautiful textiles in ancient Greece, the only people who would be seen wearing them would be royals, priests, and nobles.
Greeks were not the only ones to begin wearing the color purple as a symbol of high societal rank. In ancient Rome, emperors and priests would wear colored textiles of a darker shade of purple that had been mixed with indigo. Roman Catholic priests, especially those that are ranked as Bishops, still wear purple as a representation of piety, penitence, and faith. Priests will wear this color during Lent and when they listen to confessions. Different rankings wore different shades of purple or were coordinated with gold details or bands.
ROYAL PURPLE IN THE PALACE
More recently during the 18th and 19th centuries, rulers such as Catherine the Great continued to uphold the tradition of wearing the color purple to symbolize her royal status as Empress of Russia. Queen Victoria of Great Britain wore a mauve gown to the Royal Exhibition of 1862, a particular shade of purple that only royalty or upper society could afford to purchase. The British Royal Family is known to wear purple for special occasions and at ceremonies because it is made with purple velvet textiles and encrusted with amethyst gemstones.
THE WORLD OF FASHION
Today, the shades of purple are more popular than ever; Pantone named the color of the year for 2014 as Radiant Orchid, and Violet Tulip. Cherished for centuries, this color is not going out of style anytime soon.
Thanks to textile and dye advancements, purple clothing items can be found pretty much everywhere. Still representing royalty, religion, and symbols, you can add purple to your life any day of the week. Being that it is February and the birthstone for this month is the amethyst gemstone.
My soul is awakened, my spirit is soaring
And carried aloft on the winds of the breeze;
For above and around me the wild wind is roaring,
Arousing to rapture the earth and the seas.
The long withered grass in the sunshine is glancing,
The bare trees are tossing their branches on high;
The dead leaves beneath them are merrily dancing,
The white clouds are scudding across the blue sky.
I wish I could see how the ocean is lashing
The foam of its billows to whirlwinds of spray;
I wish I could see how its proud waves are dashing,
And hear the wild roar of their thunder to-day!
Anne Brontë – 1820-1849
“As day subtly turns to night and the hours steadily string by,
the dream, at once airy and elegant, comes within reach.
– Carine Gilson
Carine Gilson’s story harks back to the 1990s. A freshly-minted graduate of Antwerp’s prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts, where she studied fashion, Carine Gilson discovered Maille France, a small Brussels atelier that manufactured fine ladies’ underslips. She immediately fell in love with the world of lingerie.
Carine Gilson decided to acquire the workshop and, with sheer dedication, set out to work on silk, lace, and exceptional materials. In the fashion of the boundlessly creative and refined lingerie creations of yore, Carine Gilson embraced this new adventure, taking her passion to the next level to create unique, breathtaking pieces in her Brussels atelier.
The designer soon launched her couture lingerie line, Carine Gilson, a synonym for a world filled with incomparable beauty.
In no time, the press and finer stores from Japan, England, Italy, and America came calling. Buyers from renowned stores recognized the rare quality of these creations, which conjure the bygone enchantment of times past within our changed, modern world.
The prestige of Carine Gilson’s lingerie has grown quickly thanks to the unwavering excellence of her creations. In the House of Carine Gilson, every piece is lovingly crafted by hand. Perfection and finesse espouse rigor and passion. Lace incrustation is raised to an art form.
