  • Attention vintage/steampunk/thrifty shoppers — Military surplus CLEARANCE at I stocked up on the 99-cent black wool wrist-warmers and nabbed a couple of super-cheap canvas ammo bags to tote stuff around town (and conventions, conferences, events, parties, etc.). Though why Uncle Sam is also trying to unload maroon tube tops at bargain basement prices, I haven’t the foggiest.

  • Genre Chicks Interview with yours truly – Conducted by the utterly inimitable, thoroughly fabulous, and wickedly awesome Alethea Kontis. We talk superheroes, goggles, steampunk fashion practicalities, and books.

Visit her page for everything from general insight into why Edna St. Vincent Millay is accessible but lyrical … to how coconut goes so nicely with marshmallows, peanut butter, and bananas.
