First I want to thank everyone who came to the shows in California!  They were very well attended and lots of fun, but intensely busy. We sold a lot of armor, hooray! Saw many old friends, made some new ones. Whew, it was a whirlwind.

Had quite a flurry of last minute Burning Man pieces to send off when we got back too. Hopefully they all reached their destinations in time and their new owners are enjoying the magic of Black Rock City’s Metropolis by now.

Paul is finishing up a custom tres gothique bra and belt for our lovely Allegra to wear at next weekend’s DragonCon. They will complete the set started earlier this summer with the headdress and cuffs below:

Starting tomorrow – 8/31, 2 scant months before HALLOWEEN, I will start posting a daily series of helpful resources and tutorials to aid in your preparation. Haven’t tried doing a series before but I have a folder stuffed with goodies that I’ve been saving for this. Stay tuned!
