Surprisingly, considering that I was burnt out by clothing design years ago, hardly marketed* my things even when I did them (although I had lots of fans), and haven't done a damned thing about selling things since I threw up my hands absolutely ages and ages ago after determining that it was imposible to not have things be stolen and that it bothered me enough that I didn't want to go there, I STILL had someone track me down the other day, requesting something I don't even have for sale any more, and clumping me on the head and telling me to put them out. I should update things and put them out... will I? I get queasy just opening a clothing file, still.
Last week someone IMed me about the outfit I often wear, which was a commission I did for a man who was living in Korea at the time and who played a gamelan for fun (he wasn't Korean, I don't know what he was). It's based on Cambodian temple dancer pictures he sent me, but completely drawn by me from scratch. It's just interesting enough for me to want to preserve as my unique suit of clothes. I get IMs about it every so often.
It's nice to have a few no-brainer outfits as I really don't have much interest in dressing up.
* Deliberately, for whatever reason - I refused to have a logo or even a sign or shop name. I R multi-talented when it comes to hiding my light under a bushel.
