Saturday Life [24.10.15]: Drag Make-Up, Armour & Calendar Girls 🙂

Oct 24, 2015 | STUDIO LIFE | 8 comments

Hi All!

I have had the most incredible week, so full of exciting and amazing things! The first thing I want to talk about is the beautiful calendar above!! This is an amazing calendar, from Mrs.Weaver’s Finest Unmentionables, is full of real and beautiful women, in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Society! Amazing! And I’m so excited to announce that it will soon be available in the Emerald Studio Etsy Store! Make sure you head over to Karin’s blog to read all about the amazing process of making this calendar 🙂 

Now back to my week!

It started out pretty amazing with a class on drag make-up- for those days when your regular foundation-mascara routine is just not enough 🙂

Then in the evening the beautiful Mrs.Weaver and I put on our corsets and headed to another evening of Burlesque, but that evening we got to show off our wears 🙂


Then it was off the next morning for a very special meeting and future collaboration! What could make a regular corset even more amazing and exciting?

Adding armour to the mix of course! We met with a very talented armourer and talked about all the exciting possibilities mixing corsetry with armour! I am so excited to see the future of this collaboration!!


Then we had a relaxing mid week- talking all things bras and bra draft- never too far from tea & chocolate.

This was also a great opportunity to make up a beautiful lacy mastectomy bra for our upcoming expos! 🙂 Mastectomy bras should really only come in beautiful options 🙂


And so many women agreed with our idea of beautiful mastectomy wear at Bra-Day in Calgary, an evening of all things breast cancer and reconstruction. What a great evening!

And now we are off to even more events to show our beautiful wears 🙂 We will be at the Calgary Body Soul & Spirit Expo all weekend!! So if you’re in the area feel free to stop in for a chat!

It has really been the fullest and most phenomenal week! I can’t wait for all the amazing things this week to come! 🙂 If you are on Instagram you can always check out mine and mrs.weaver’s happening by following us @theemeraldstudio & @mrsweaversfinest and with our #emeraldweaverproject!

Hope you’re all having a fantastic week 🙂 Let me know all about it in the comments!

    Sounds like an amazing week Erin! Things have been a bit hectic for me lately (though not in such a fun way!), but now it's time to knuckle down a bit and get into exam study. Not too much longer till I'm free though (for the summer, at least :P)!

    • EmeraldErin

      Thanks Maddy! I can't wait until you're out for the summer and back to making beautiful things! good luck on your exams!

    Dad and I have had a busy week building the new fitting room for the Emerald Studio. It's 5'x8' and it fits in the shop beautifully! It's great to hear you and Karin are having such a fun time doing so many interesting things. Gibby sure misses you! (We do too). Have a great week 🙂

    • EmeraldErin

      YAY!! I can't wait to see my fitting room and get it all set up 🙂 I miss Gibby so much, and you too 🙂 🙂

    Wow! That's been a ton of stuff for a single week!! It looks like you and Karin had so much fun!! That vintage calendar seems really beautiful, and it supports such a good cause. And, of course, I'm so intrigued about the corset-armour collaboration! I'm sure it'll be amazing! 🙂
    Have a great week!!

    • EmeraldErin

      It has been quite a week! so many ideas, so much planned for the future 🙂 Hope you had a great week too!

    Ohh! I totally need a drag make up class – doing my make up for stage still terrifies me!

    Also, armour and corsetry sounds very exciting…

    • EmeraldErin

      It was such a fun class! I would definitely recommend- and stage make-up sounds exciting! I would be too terrified to be on a stage in front of people!
