Default Okay, crafty ladies...I need some ideas! lol

Hi ladies! I have a friend who is a photographer and she asked me if I wanted to offer a special to her customers where I would make something and she would do the photos and they got to keep whatever it is that I come up with. I know she has done this to a fellow bowmaker in my area and they came out great but I need something different ( don't wanna be a copy cat) I was thinking Halloween but that's the same thing the other bow maker did. So, my next thought is to order the fall pettiskirts from the buy going on now and make bows to match them but for what I would have to charge, I don't think the people in my area would buy them. They would cost me $15 a piece plus shipping so it kinda brings the cost up more. IDK, what do you think? Do I just need to decline her offer for now? Help!

What do you make normally? I would go with something that you have available at all times. IF you go to the expense of doing all that people are going to want to be able to buy what is in the pictures. Maybe do a pettiskirt to make it look a little cooler but make sure that your bows are the primary subject of the pictures. Where are you going to use the pictures? If you have a website you might sell some of the pettis that way but you would need to keep soome in stock for that.

Could you make a tutu instead? That would be less cost to you & you could sell those for less & maybe more so around your area.

Just thinking out loud here, sorry if it is a bit of a ramble.
Printed foe & specialty ribbon buys done here!!

I can do tutus as well...I just LOVE the pettiskirts. THe photographer was going to offer limited spots hoping that they would fill fast and whatever I ordered was what I had available. She is AWESOME and she usually books up extremely fast. I LOVE the idea of a MInnie Mouse shoot and I could order the skirts pettitops and make the felt ears to match but once again I would have to charge $50 just on my end. I was going to use the pics on my website that I am starting and also just to get my name out. IKD I'm thinking a fall tutu with bow might be's just not what i was wanting But hey...I'll take what I can get! lol I mean, I just asked her to take some pics for me and she offered this shoot idea...I really want to take her up on it!

The Minnie Mouse idea is great. Instead of a petti, what about a tutu if that is more cost saving for you and your customers.
