Working out pre-tied bow tie designs, and the crafted patterns drafted!
Now to make them!
It will now be continually updated, and just made better and more awesome.
Direct sales only until my stuff gets into local shops and I get e-commerce launched.
Keep me in mind for the holidays ;)
My bow tie line, Call Me Cornelius, is growing! I’m currently going through a slight re-brand: working on logos, tags, design thumbnails, etc. Above are some doodles of logo designs: I want simplistic and elegant and clean. Ahw yea.
I also have a new website! www.callmecornelius.com! It is currently empty. But soon… soon it will be full of new bow ties! Worn by MODELS. Models because I have good looking friends who will model for me and be paid in bow ties. And I’ll slowly but surely be adding features like custom ordering and buying directly from the site, etc. There are also a few local businesses that have expressed interest in carrying my line, so I’ll be sharing all that jazz.
FEWF. EXCITING AND TERRIFYING. STAY TUNED.
Bow ties I made last week, but have only just gotten the chance to photograph!
I tweaked my “classic” design, and tested it on these beauties. I liked the commission I did back in June so much I made one for myself, and the red plaid is from a shirt a housemate got ink on.
Wedding commission: DONE.
This was an epic endeavour, and I am so, so proud. I produced eight identical bow ties, with the brides exact specifications, and… just… they’re so beautiful. I hesitate to say perfect, but… well, they’re perfect.
Also, since I’m my own boss/run my own business, I get to wear/do whatever I want while I work, hence the Harry Potter shirt and putting stuff on my head.
I’ll post photos of the groomsmen in a couple of weeks, after the wedding!
I feel slightly strange about finding something I have made so very beautiful.
But I do.
