Lovely and sturdy product, classy packaging, fast (and free!) alteration for a local buyer, all in all awesome. Thank you!

About

Maybe I shouldn't have made that first raider costume...

If I hadn't, this shop wouldn't exist. But I told my boyfriend it would be fun, to make costumes for the launch party celebrating the first video game we'd worked on together as professional artists. And armed with a lot of beer, a cheap array of scrounged up leather, bike tires and hand tools, we did it. I remember looking at myself in the mirror and thinking "This looks pretty damn good! If this is what I can do armed with alcohol and ineptitude, what could I do... if I knew what the hell I was doing?"

So in the years that followed I experimented with sewing and crafting. I'd always loved leather, especially black leather. The smell, the texture, the sense of some kind of soul clinging to the material. It naturally drew my focus. I resisted. The entry costs for tools to get into leather in a serious way are significant. Even your first hide is expensive. But I had to do it. My sketchbooks were starting to get filled with extravagant leather costumes, and whenever I came into a bit of extra money and went online to find a new belt or a collar I just couldn't find anything right for me. There were many beautiful things, but they were all just a little wrong for my personal style. Everything was too simple. Too complicated. Too feminine. Too butch. Too steampunk. I wanted postagothalyptic accessories, fit for stomping around ancient European ruins while the sky is lit up with fire.

Or at least a bondage belt that isn't in the closet of every other goth in the club.

So now finally, after way too much time dragging my feed and wringing my hands and worrying that my stuff just wasn't PERFECT enough to start selling yet, my shop is open. I hope you like my designs. I'm putting up the simple things first, but things are going to get pretty crazy eventually.
