You’re an international person of mystery and intrigue, and even those who have never met you will be drawn to you… because you’ll brandish your self-painted unicorn pin upon your attire and spellbind every soul who gazeth in your direction. True, some may sneer, but only to feign their desperate jealousy, their envy and avarice amplified by your golden, unconcerned countenance.
These flat wooden silhouettes are not the entire unicorn, but rather just the head:
We’ll hand you one, paint it with stripes, dots, anything! Embellish with gems or glitter and MORE, and then we’ll put a pin-back on it and voila, you’ve got quite the beautiful unicorn pin, Prêt-à–Porter!
Human beings have been fascinated by unicorns since forever ago, the Greeks filed them under Natural History (not mythology) because they absolutely believed unicorns were real, alive and frolicking somewhere in India. Since then, we’ve learned some things, calmed down a little and decided that well… okay FINE. Unicorns probably aren’t real… but we’re open to being proven wrong! A unicorn’s blessing is said to give you the power to succeed at any endeavor you attempt! Unicorns are signifiers of the ideals of hope and change!
When you wear unicorn fashion, you’re saying that you’re into certain things. It means you’re into whimsical notions. It also means you’re into the rare and unique and exquisite. Unicorns are capable of just about anything. Nothing says “body glitter” and “sparkly nail decals” like unicorns, fighting darkness, and bleak, oppressive regimes with experimentation, innovative ideas, and LOTS of froofy colors. Come in and get one, make it yours for March, and then let it be your totem for powering you up to clean the house, rock a new hairstyle, flirt with abandon, endless possibilities!
See you at the Craft Table,
