Once a month, I head to the basement of the 3 Kings Tavern to drink, to chit-chat…and to make some awesome craft. Under the direction of Becky the Head Ninja (and sometimes a guest-Ninja) women learn a new craft: knitting, cookie-decorating, pom-pom-making. In April, the craft was learning to make (and properly wear) pasties. And what better instructors than the ladies of Ooh-La-La Burlesque?
As Becky wrote:
“When you combine Denver Craft Ninjas stealthy bad ass craft prowess with the lovely and entrancing glamour of Ooh La La Burlesque…good things are bound to happen! Our pasty project rocked it!”
Meanwhile, here is the outcome of my hours of pasty-making:
If you point the red upward, they’re oh-so-dangerous flames. But if you point it downward, it’s oh-so-painful runner’s nipples.
And if you hold them horizontally, they are evil eyes. Maybe Voldemort’s.
Multifaceted. That’s how I prefer my pasties to be.
