Tipping the Velvet charity auction [26 May 2011|10:56pm]

I am running a charity auction for Breakthrough Breast Cancer along with Tipping the Velvet actress Rachael Stirling, who played Nan in the BBC production.

We have loads of Tipping the Velvet stuff in the auction, including the famous gold phallus and harness, and the Nan King door nameplate from her dressing room door. We also have original scripts for all three episodes of Tipping, as well as a signed and personalised copy of the DVD and signed photos.

As well as all of that, Rachael Stirling is offering the opportunity to meet her at the Savoy Hotel in London for afternoon tea. :-)

We also have donations from Fiona Button who starred in BBC's Lip Service. She is donating a signed and personalised copy of Lip Service series 1, as well as signed photos.

If you don't fancy bidding on any of the items, please please pleeeease consider donating even a small amount to the cause to help us reach our £5,000 target - we're not even halfway there yet!

Bid on auction items at http://www.rachael-stirling.com/charity/ and YES we ship internationally. :-)

Donate instead at http://www.justgiving.com/rachael-stirling/ - even if it's just £1!

Thank you.

Take care

Charity auction of Tipping the Velvet props [20 Nov 2010|10:28pm]

Charity auction of Tipping the Velvet props

As you may have heard already, Rachael Stirling will be holding a charity auction of Tipping the Velvet props, for the Too Many Women campaign (for Breakthrough Breast Cancer) this December.

She will be running the auction through Rachael Stirling Online, which is where all the latest news will be. Go to http://www.rachael-stirling.com/charity/ to find out more. You can also use the form on that page to sign up to receive announcements about the auction as they unfold.

In the mean time, if you wish to donate to Rachael's fund without bidding on an auction item, you can do so at her JustGiving.com page at http://www.justgiving.com/rachael-stirling/ - please donate!

Please pass this on to anyone you think may be interested in either the charity auction, or in donating to Rachael's fund. Thank you!

pimping new land comm [27 Aug 2010|11:46pm]

So I don't normally pimp things unless I really believe in them, and think they are truely awesome, and this is one of those times.

I know I have a lot of femslash fans on my flist, so go and have a look at this:

femslash_land femslash_land femslash_land

For those who are members of landcomms already and are sick of having to write het/ambiguous fic in order to win challenges, we need no longer conform! (lol)

And for those of you who aren't on any landcomms, this is a team challenge community where individuals compete in graphics and fic challenges, as well as do fun games and puzzles, to earn points for their team. It's a great place to meet new people, as well as participate in things you wouldn't normally do (I hated graphics, but have learnt I'm not half bad at them)

This landcomm is for all femslash tv and movie pairings, so come along, apply and join in the fun!

so go and apply here

Tipping the Velvet icons 3 [11 Jan 2009|11:16am]

So, I'm finally getting around to posting the third part of my Tipping the Velvet icons. Certainly took me long enough since these have been made for a while now! I suppose that is real life getting the way. But whatever, below I have icons from the third part of Tipping the Velvet made from the gorgeous screen caps of ohvienna which she posted Here.

So, take a look and enjoy. Parts 1 and 2 of these can be found Here and Here.

Velvet icons [18 Dec 2008|08:00pm]

I am not normally an icon maker. However, due to the beautiful screen caps of ohvienna I was inspired and have made some Tipping the Velvet icons. They are rather simple but I still think all right. (Obviously or I wouldn't post them) Anyhow, if you're interested take a look!

This first bunch is just from part 1 of the mini-series. I have more from the other two parts that will go up later.

Wanting to dress up like Nan? [04 Jul 2008|08:19pm]

Hello all! I've just recently finished the book Tipping the Velvet and adored it so, obviously. I'm looking to soon watch the mini TV show too - from what I here, it seems good? Is it too different from the books? Well, if anything, I would watch it just for the prettyness..

But I had another question, and I apologize if it is too off-topic.. but I wondered if anyone here had any idea of where to find suits like Nan and Kitty had, as I am going to a ball soon. Boy's suits for girls, so to speak. Besides getting them custom-fitted, because that's expensive. I'm a small girl myself, so should I look for boy's (small boys) suits in the largest size? Every time I search girl's suits I just find those feminine business suits. Any ideas/tips on where to look?

Thank you! <3

Rachael Stirling fan site [11 Jun 2008|10:50pm]

I have recently re-vamped my Rachael Stirling fan site, so please visit when you get the chance. :) I have added a massive gallery full of Tipping the Velvet photos, including screencaps and promotional images, so it's well worth a look. (For those of you who don't remember, Rachael played Nan in the BBC adaptation of Tipping the Velvet.)


Thanks! :)

[ mood | relieved ]

"Eva Longoria is shooting down rumors that she plans to star as Beyonce Knowles's lover in a new movie.

"Stop the madness" Longoria tells PEOPLE exclusively about the false reports that she and Knowles will play a couple in an adaptation of Sarah Waters's love story Tipping the Velvet. "Believe me, I would love to work with Beyonce one day. She's so talented. But this is definitely not something we are doing together. It's completely and absolutely not true.""

Thank God.

Nan and Flo music video [23 Aug 2006|06:53pm]

Hi everyone,

A while ago, my girlfriend made some Tipping the Velvet music videos featuring Nan and Kitty. You may have seen them. I thought I'd have a go at making a video of Nan and Flo instead, so that's exactly what I've done. :D I finished it today, and I'm quite pleased with it. It's set to the track "Children" by Robert Miles.

You can watch it either on YouTube (link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkDWTRoLJxU — you'll probably need to pause it for a while to let it load) or by downloading it from my Rachael Stirling fansite, here. (It's labelled "Tipping the Velvet: Music Video #3".)

Please let me know what you think! :)
