Bloggers find our Costume Accessories for your Bosom page and the hit counters go wild!


Our BosomBuddies2005.htm page gets 78,493 hits in one day - over 168,000 for the month.  We are being forced to move our website to a higher hosting level to avoid thousands of dollars in bandwidth overage fees. It's exciting, but scary, as no sales or inquiries have yet resulted from this onslaught.

(August of 2007 we had to remove the Bosom Buddies page
because it was considered Adult Content by Google and was causing "Safe Searchers" to miss our site)

Blogs from all over the world continue to feature photos of our bosom buddies and titmice.  

On the first day of April we used up 25% of our monthly allotted bandwidth.  Eric was forced to rename the bosom buddies page in an attempt to block the hits until he can move the site to the new server.  We reduced the size of all the pictures of our helping hands and titmice - if you would like to see larger photos we would gladly email them to you.

Pirate Weekend at the Maryland Renaissance Faire was a complete riot. 
Thousands of patrons and participants shelved their traditional renaissance dress and came bedecked from head to toe in black costumes and tall leather boots. There were lady pirates, scraggily looking pirates and pyrate dandies everywhere.

Marionette maker Eric Heath and face painter Bruce ran into each other near the joust and found they had both had the same idea for a new pirate hat! Bruce built his own (it was very light), Debra built Eric's, and Eric sewed huge buttons from underneath the hat to the little brads that held the rigging of the wooden model (it weighed a couple pounds).
