Also, if you're in New York City this Saturday, come see me at a fundraiser for Pinnacle, a great project that is inviting artist to reinvent the NO FUR pin! You can win Coquette Faux Furriers goodies, and lots of other vegan delights! RSVP here, and read more about the initiative here!

I am going to start offering select items available for retail sale very soon! I have purses available immediately on my facebook group, click on the link to the right! I have also opened an Etsy store, so click here to check it out: Coquette Faux Furriers on Etsy.

I also started a poll on the far right to see what kind of items you are most interested in seeing here. Pass it onto your friends and let me know what you want!

August 3, 2010:

It's that time of year, I'll be accepting wholesale orders and select custom requests, email me at coquettefauxfurriers@gmail.com with any questions!

August 1, 2009:

I am currently accepting wholesale orders for the months of August and October. To place an order and get wholesale pricing contact Bettina at coquettefauxfurriers@gmail.com. I will also be accepting limited retail and custom orders as time allows this month, email for details.

December 11, 2008:

If you absolutely must have something and can't find it at our retail locations, email me at coquettefauxfurriers@gmail.com to see if I'll be near fabric and sewing machine soon enough to suit your needs.

November 27, 2008:

Our auctions on ebay end on Sunday, so make sure to take a look and get great deals on items in time for the holidays!! I've also added new photos of go-go Amy to the Gallery of her in the custom red leoplard set she commisioned! Click on the photo of her to the right to see more!

November 23, 2008:

It doesn't happen very often, but here goes nothin'! SALE SALE SALE!!! I have four items up on ebay.ca that were worn in the SuicideGirls.com/Peta2 fashion show this year. I need to make room because I am getting ready to go on tour with Pretty Things Peepshow, and that means you can pick up brand new items at steal-of-a-deal prices! I've got them all listed on our Specials page, and here's pics of them too:

Going on tour for a few months means that I will be unable to fill orders from January on until at least February, maybe longer, but you will still be able to order some items from my retailers around the globe. If you have any custom ideas or big orders you were thinking of placing soon, please email me at coquettefauxfurriers@gmail.com so I can see what we can work out!

It's been a really busy year! It seems like I was just sending stuff down to LA for the PETA2 fashion show, and here it is almost the end of the year! When I haven't been hard at work sewing orders, and touring the world with my new burlesque troupe Pretty Things Peepshow, I found time to create a new male pin-up magazine called An Occasional Man. Whether you are buying some faux fur goodies for yourself or for a special friend this holiday season, they make a great stocking stuffer! Get your copy here, and for the month of November only, all orders over $200 will get Issue 3 for free!

Whoa, where did January go? I guess I was so busy moving into my new apartment that it passed right by! Big news for all you folks living near Los Angeles, as my products will be appearing in a Valentine's Day Fashion show next week, put on by PETA2 with SuicideGirls.com. RSVP peta2@suicidegirls.com to attend, and rub shoulders with tons of sexy animal-loving SuicideGirls and celebrities!

If you go, keep your eyes peeled for a pic of me in the new ad campaign for "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur", and if you can't make it, head over to peta2.com where they will be releasing the ads over the next month or so. Check that one off the list of life goals!

I finally finished the last of my local Christmas orders today, so I had a chance to go through and update some product pictures, including the addition of a black and red version of the Lucille Hat!

Now that the December rush is over, I can get cracking designing new products! Have a relaxing holiday season, and can't wait to hear from you in 2008!

December 11, 2007:

Whoo-eee! What a busy gal I am this year, so many orders to fill! Just wanted all you Christmas-celebrating Kats and Kittens that the deadline for regular shipping within Canada, US and Europe to reach yall by Dec 25th has been passed, so if you are needing something by then, email for your other shipping options. Xpresspost within Canada is pretty reasonable, but it gets quite costly for out of the country order.

There is new hope for those across the pond, in the form of my newest retailer! In the UK and Europe, you can now shop online at Pin-Up Parade where you can also find tons of other wonderful vintage-inspired goodies!

In the US check out Babygirl Boutique for your last minute gift-giving, and check back to hear about a brand new retailer soon to be added!

Also check back in January, as all this time at the sewing machine has given me tons of ideas for new products, which I'll be whipping up as soon as this Christmas rush is over: think Menswear, and lots of other fun items!

November 19, 2007:

I've added a new Gallery for all the lovely pictures of Kitten DeVille in the Shimmy Magazine Signature Line! Take a look and let me know what you think of the new line!

November 11, 2007:

I'm proud to introduce the newest addition to the Coquette Faux Furrier product line, the Shimmy Magazine Signature Line!! In collaboration with Shimmy Magazine, the biggest little burlesque magazine in the world, I've created a burlesque-themed set of fringe-trimmed waist-cincher, pasties, stole and hat! Modeled here by Miss Exotic World 2002, Kitten DeVille!

I'm back from tour and back at my machine getting your orders ready! The strangest thing happened when I got back: the value of the US dollar dropped so much while I was away that it's worth less than my Canadian dollar, a first in my lifetime! Unfortunately, this means I've had to adjust all the prices on my website to compensate, so if you are making a new order, please note the change.

In better news I was able to do lots of fun photoshoots with my products in Europe, so keep your eyes peeled for photos soon!

September 5th, 2007:

That's right, I'll be on tour with GLAM-O-RAMA again, this time heading to England, Portugal, Germany, France and Italy, so I won't be able to fill your orders until I get back, so if you place your order now, be prepared to wait about a month for delivery. When I get back we'll be unveiling a brand new Signature line for fall, so keep your eyes peeled for updates!

June 11, 2007:

It's a first for us! Join us in welcoming our first male model, Michael Camino of Hawaii's premier psychobilly band, The Hell Caminos, wearing our new black-trimmed leopard gloves!

April 22, 2007:

I've added new photos of Bernie Dexter and myself and the GLAM-O-RAMA Girly Show to the Gallery, so go take a peek and tell me what you think!

April 6, 2007:

I'm back in town and ready to start filling orders again! So much is new at Coquette Faux Furriers Headquarters, starting with the feature Shimmy Magazine did on us in their most recent issue!

I'm joined by fellow vegan and burlesque performer Tana the Tattooed Lady (billed as Ruby Slipper, her old stage name) in the photos that accompany the 9-page article, so whether you are a fan of faux fur, burlesque, pin-up, or all three, you should definitely check it out! We have a limited supply that we are selling, so grab it while they last!

February 12 2007:

I'm going to be out of town for all of March, and will not be able to fill any orders after the end of this week up until April 6th, and will be taking down the payment sections of the website during that period to avoid confusion. If you are wanting to place orders during this time, your best bet is to visit Babygirl Boutique who carries a wide selection of our most popular products, and a lot of other beautiful items! If you are near Costa Mesa, California, you can find our items in Humanitaire on 2937 S. Bristol St. Suite A-101A, or if Portland, Oregon is closer, you can find a few items at the Herbivore store on 5519 NE 30th Avenue. Our New Zealand fans can find some of our products online at Noir as well. I will be available for custom orders starting again in April, thank you for your patience!
