My Holiday Wishlist. :)

Happy Holidays, all!

I hadn't actually put conscious thought into doing a wishlist again this year, because I've been so overwhelmed (having a bad time of life right now). But on the other hand, I could really use an excuse to have fun. :)
Thanks in advance to everyone who participates in this wishlist concept. I think strangers giving good cheer is a fantastic thing that makes the world a better place.

1. Retro/Pinup clothing- I love love love this style of clothing, and a lot of it looks great on my form (empire waists, princess seams, etc). I've had a hard time finding good pieces (and affording them), but I eventually hope to have a wardrobe that is mostly in the 1940s/50s fashion.

2. Mucha and other Art Nouveau prints- I adore this style of art, and have a vision for decorating my new condo with these prints, as well as artwork done by friends. I want to create more feminine, soft, sensual things in my life, and art nouveau just makes me feel pretty. :)

3. Fabric- Thanks to some good friends, I have a lot of velvet and silks, which is great for reproduction garb. However, I also have my eye on sewing some sundresses and work clothes, and for that I'd need cotton blends, suitweights, etc. Any decent pieces larger than a yard would be fantastic.

4. Comfortable heels- Is there such a thing? I've been searching for size 9 wide heels that won't kill my feet (and knees) but I could wear to work and with a retro wardrobe, but not found anything yet. Anybody have a decent pair to give away, or know where I can get some?

5. Things with orca whales on them- I'm going back to grad school, hopefully next Fall, for the eventual goal of working with these amazing animals. Orcas are my totem, and have been my focus since I was a little girl. I love anything with them on it, whether a photo or tribal art or impressionist, etc.

6. Tea- Especially Numi brand. I've been going through tea like some people go through Kleenex, and am always hunting for more. Herbal, black, green, red, white- as long as it doesn't taste like socks, I'll drink it. ;)

7. Historic costume pieces- Got a top hat? Victorian shoes? Fan? Gloves? Fob watch? Goggles? Corset? Wig? Costume jewelry? Reticule? I'm always glad of accent pieces to round of the multiple costumes I'm sewing. Especially hats. I desperately need Victorian/Edwardian style hats.

8. Pilates Class- I've wanted to try pilates for a couple of years now, but I'm a bit shy of it from having thrown out my back doing yoga (multiple times, whenever I try to follow a video or book).

9. Massage- This is both a want and a need. Might be too specific, but then, someone might have a gift certificate good for Seattle area that they're dying to give away. ;)

10. Fandom things- Dr. Who, Battlestar Galactica, Shadow Unit, Shakespeare, Farscape, Firefly/Serenity, and Pirates of the Carribean stuff always makes me squee. :)

The nitty gritties:

Thanks, and happy wishing!
I love that style of clothing, too. My foot is also a size 9-9 1/2 wide and I found great heels in the peep-toe 40s-50s style by Quipid.
Anything specific you're looking for with #10 for Doctor Who? My creativity is pretty much linked to my NaNoWriMo novel right now but if you give me some details (ie favorite Doctor, favorite companion, etc) I might be able to come up with something :)
Hey! I'm doing NaNoWriMo as well. :) Thanks!
I am pretty nuts over the entire new Dr Who, especially (of course) David Tennant's portrayal of him. Rose is my favorite companion (with Donna Noble being a second fav).
And thank you! Love your icon, too. :)
Not a problem :) And yay! We have the same favorites so that should make it easier to come up with something now and then do it afterwards.

Thanks, I made it last year thinking it was the perfect thing for me XD
One question since the Tenth Doctor is currently babbling in my head and I may just manage to write you a short fic but I just need one clarification - do you ship Ten/Rose or Nine/Rose or have any sort of OTPs? If not I know someone else who likes it and I'll come up with something else for you since he sure does love to babble :)
Ok, to be totally honest, I have never read any Dr Who fanfic. So...I don't know. :) Sorry, I know that doesn't help!
I have an abundance of tea that I'm happy to share. Will you drop me a line at dakotawitch @ gmail dot com with "Holiday Wishes: Numi Tea" in the Subject and your addy in the body
