Rabbit Tales – A History in the Making

Introduction

Rabbit and Rabbit Tales

Rabbit has always creative and curious to learn. Ever since she received her first tub of Legos, she’s been constantly building. As she grow, so did her love for crafts and learning. In middle school, she took every craft related class she could. It was the same in high school as well. During her senior year of high school, Rabbit’s art teacher agreed to have her as a student assistant where Rabbit learned she had a passion for teaching as much as creating.

It was the year after high school, during a sleepless night of thinking, that Rabbit had a revelation: she should open a business with all these different crafts and also start offering classes/tutorials so other people can learn from her!

It was an amazing idea. Now she had to decide on a name. It was already a late night of sleepless thinking, so she continues to think. Rabbit had been a recent nickname she received thanks to a recent cosplay build and she was embracing the name more a more.

Once again, the idea struck: Rabbit Tales. A play on words and ideas. Most people would think it was tails, which would give her a chance to explain, “no, no. Tales. As in stories. Every craft is a new chapter for me.”

The idea would sit in the back of her mind for months until it finally sounded right and a basic idea was formed. Then, it would a few years before Rabbit Tales would become what it is now.

Lion and the Craft Bug

Lion wasn’t much of a crafter. His love for art came from his father who had a lovely talent for drawing. He did, though, have an eye for Rabbit and enjoyed watching her love of crafting. He wanted to see Rabbit Tales grow after listening to Rabbit ramble about all the ideas she had for it. He agreed that going to conventions and applying for artist alley tables would be a great start. During the first tabled event, Lion felt a little lost. He enjoyed watching Rabbit make all these amazing things, but had nothing to show for himself.

A few events later, Lion caught himself admiring some etched glass-work at another table. After a bit of of convincing from Rabbit, he went over to the table and asked about the process. After that event, the couple got the necessary supplies to have Lion start this new craft.

The crafting bug had infected Lion.

Pretty soon he was asking about more crafts he could learn, and offering to run panels about them as well. The infection of making Rabbit Tales bigger had spread.

Crystal Prep Skirt – Creation and Sales

Information on how to order the skirts and necessary information will be below the image. 

20170502_135418

It is finally time to post the information on how to order your very own Crystal Prep Equestia Girls Skirt!

Up first, let’s talk about the specs:

~The skirt is made with a plaid and solid color, 100% cotton flannel and is machine washable (I do recommend hang drying the skirt, followed by a nice steam ironing to get the pleats to pop back into place)

~Each skirt has been cut, sewn, folded, and adjusted by me. There will be small hiccups in each skirt. However, I will not send anything out I wouldn’t use myself.

~The length of the skirt is roughly 13in with a 2inch waist band. The back has a zipper and hook and eye for easy wear. Skirts up to 45 inches around will be the same price. If your waist/hips are passed that number, there is an extra fee. All information on pricing can be found on the etsy listing (posted below).

~The only measurement needed for the skirt creation is your hips/waist (AKA: where you want to have the skirt sit on you). I will probably add 1/2 inch to that measurement to make sure it’s comfortable. If the skirt does not fit right, you didn’t measure yourself correctly and that’s on you to be honest to yourself and myself as well! I don’t care about your size. I promise. It’s just another number to me that I will forget after I ship out your skirt.

~Turn around time is between 2 to 3 weeks. There is a chance it may be less if I have the fabric pre-created. If you want to know if there is any fabric made ahead of time, you can reach out to me. Please note that I cannot and will not rush an order. I have a life and it doesn’t revolve around making skirts all day and night.

~If you are interested in a longer/short skirt, this will be a custom order and I will have to treat it as such. This means you’ll need to message me with the length you are after. We will continue discussion after that.

~I do not know how long I can order the plaid fabric or if it will be discontinued in the near future! I cannot place holds or reserve an amount for you because you plan to buy it later. If the fabric gets discontinued, there is nothing I can do and I will end orders for the skirt until I find something else to work!! AKA: wait at your own risk!
