Subject: I am Selling the PERFECT Columbia Boustier Material - revisited.

Organization: RockyNewsgroup.org

Taken from http://www.homeofhappiness.com/fabric/

The year was 1975. Harvard dropout Bill Gates and a friend launched a fledgling
computer company they named Microsoft. John Travolta made his television debut
as Vinnie Barbarino in "Welcome Back Kotter". A little movie known as "The
Rocky Horror Picture Show" had just flopped in theatres but was making a
comeback on the midnight circuit. The textile world was filled with polyester,
corduroy and of course gaudy multi colored sequin fabric. It was a glorious
time for the Rocky Horror enthusiasts. One could hardly walk into any Five and
Dime without stumbling across a premade Rocky Horror costume. In the years
following, time had not been kind to us. First came the vinyl jackets of the
80s. Then the Hammer pants of the 90s. Where could one find fabric for their
costumes? Especially those gaudy multi colored sequins you need to get that
perfect Columbia bustier?

It wasn't until 1999 when Kim Shafer took it upon herself to make "the PERFECT
Columbia Bustier Material". It was custom made with the correct sequin colors
and an easy to work with strand knit backing. ColumbiaÂ’s the world over
rejoiced. Sadly however she was sold out in less than two months. Columbias
have been clamoring for fabric like this ever since. In an effort to help the
Rocky Horror world I took it upon myself to get some custom made. I just got it
in from the manufacturer just the other day. Holy crap is this stuff amazing!

(Finally, the good stuff, damn you talk a lot Larry). The fabric is 18 inches
wide. You will need 1 - 2 yards to cover a bustier. One yard if the girl is
size 8 or under. A little more for bigger girls and those with the ample
cleavage. The sequins are flat just like in the movie. Red, green, blue, silver
and gold, just like in the movie. No lining just connected stranded sequins on
somewhat stretchy strands. The fabric is exactly like KimÂ’s with one or two
minor differences. Her strands were yellow; my strands are black (to match the
black corset backing better). The backs of the sequins are gold on my fabric.
Not that this makes a difference as these sequin backs will be facing your body
and not the audience. Just like Kim's material, the fabric was made using spot
pattern sequin dying as most sequin fabrics are made these days. This will
occasionally lead to some half blue half green sequins for example. Unless you
are holding each individual sequin next you your eye you will not notice this.
Certainly not from a stage.

It is sold for $40 a yard, with $5 shipping & handling no matter how many yards
you get. You will not find this fabric anywhere else as it was explicitly
custom made. This is as good as it gets...and it's damn good.

I am accepting payment via PayPal. You can send payment by going to the webpage
I set up for the fabric sales: http://www.homeofhappiness.com/fabric/

If anyone has any questions that are not answered here feel free to ask. I well
do my best to answer them.

Larry.

Does this kid only acept paypal, or do the universal currencies of sexual favors or, i don't know, checks work?


And did you ever wonder why sexual favors never were on the international money market? I think everyone's life would be a lot simpler if they were, and if there were clearly defined exchange rates, you know? But then you might wind up with a dollar being a fifth of a blow job, and no real way to give a fifth of a blow job, so i guess it's just as well. It would make me read the wall street journal, though.

It's Larry Viezel selling it, who I've known for about eight years now and would trust implicitly. E-mail him to find out if there's another route besides PayPal. Brittany, the enchilada over there is Mr. Not-In-The-Army Sporadic Techboy Chris I believe.

I am indeed Sporadic Tech Non-Army Temple Chris. And on the chance that he won;t take non-paypal payments, if someone uses paypal and buys me a yard i'll pay 'em back the absolute very next time i'm at the show.

And now, let's all say a silent prayer that my relatives don't ask what i spent my graduation money on.

:stress: <- approximate expected response.
