Clothed in Confidence

October 15th, 2010 by Bahama

It should come as no surprise that many of my customers are performers by trade.  Being in the spotlight, they require various costumes and need to pay special attention to their appearance.  Their business can be a blessing… but at times it can also be unsettling.

I know many talented entertainers who work the cantinas who’s focus is clearly on their art, whether that be music or dance.  But one doesn’t have to hang around the cantina for long to realize that there are some who frequent these places who are shopping for something more than a song and dance.

Not many people know this, but when I first began my career as a tailor, I avoided using certain well known patterns and making some popular items for entertainers.  I saw first hand the reaction some of these more risque costumes begot and it wasn’t always respectful. 

I knew it wasn’t my job to dictate what people should wear and I knew that most of the female entertainers knew just how to deal with unwanted advances.  But there were those few, young and vulnerable, that I felt were in very real danger of being taken advantage of.  And for a long while I simply couldn’t bring myself to craft clothing that might increase that likelihood.

Since then, I’ve seen the inner workings of the entertainer networks a bit more clearly and I’ve come to understand that overwhelmingly the elder ents are looking out for the young ones, teaching them what they need to know to stay safe.  I’ve stocked my vendor with all types of costumes for many years now and rarely give it a second thought… Save for the occasional  young woman who reminds me. 

Today such a performer came to my shop.   She was just starting out and wanted to lay the foundation of her wardrobe.  She wore one of the standard costumes and asked to see it in some other colors as well as any other costumes I thought might help her attract attention where there was competition for business.

As I worked we chatted.  She was sweet and spoke with a soft, polite tone.   She told me how she’d been offered employment in a private establishment but that she wasn’t sure she wanted the job.  “I’m not sure if I’m completely comfortable with everything that goes on there but I told her I’d give it a shot”, she explained. 

I paused for a moment and just stared at the sheer fabric I was working with, considering her words.  I took a breath and continued sewing.  “I’ve always found it best to stay true to yourself.  Don’t do anything you’re not comfortable with”, I said matter-of-factly.  I kept my eyes focused on my work as I inquired, “Is the work in Eisly profitable?”

“It is, yet the competition is a lot heavier than I am used to.  I would love to be able to find a more wholesome privately run establishment…. It seems too many of these cantinas are skeletons now a days.”

I made her a couple of costumes that looked amazing on her.   We got her some more reserved clothing to wear outside of work and, as usual, finished off with some matching accessories.  She was a joy to work with.

With her new wardrobe safely in her pack and her bill paid, I gave her a gift.   It was an entertainer’s dressing robe, made specially for preventing accidental exposure during wardrobe changes in crowded cantinas.  “I know how those gents in the cantinas can be”, I explained.

She laughed and agreed, “I know what you mean.”  She added, “And I decided that I’ll just be bartending at the club.”  I told her I was relieved to hear it.   And I was.

She left the shop with a giggle and a smile, leaving me confident that she’ll be alright, no matter what she wears.

Finding a New Rhythm

October 9th, 2010 by Bahama

I’ve spent the last few weeks setting up my new shop in Kaadara and settling into my semi-retirement on the beach.  The relaxed atmosphere of this seaside town is so different from the big city life of Theed.  The slow, constant tumbling of the waves outside my door begs me to slow down, take my time and simply enjoy each moment. 

Gone are the days of missed lunches, working late into the night, stressing over my vendor stock, prices and competition.  And do you know what?  I don’t miss it all nearly as much as I thought I would.

I’ve found time to people watch on the beach, enjoy a caf and a good book at the starport and travel the galaxy shopping for trinkets.  I’ve enjoyed time with friends, both old and new. 

Oh, and joined up with a new guild as well, a group of self-proclaimed pirates whose kindness and strict code of honor expose their true nature.  It’s an unlikely place for me end up but with so many  friends there, I wouldn’t be anywhere else.  It’s home now.

Most folks have moved away from where Moneta used to stand and so I’ve undertaken to move  my house closer to where they’ve all settled on Lok as well.  Most of the furniture is there but it’s far from being set up.  I work on it here and there as the mood strikes but I imagine it will take many more months before it’s completed.  I intend to take my time and maybe even try out a few new construction and decoration ideas as I go.

Yes, this new life agrees with me quite well.  I think I’ll stay.  :)
