I know that there has been a gap in my posts. This, my squidlings and squidlets, is due to the fact that I am in between computers. This puts a damper on my picture posting abilities, so here is some news that only requires me to yoink things from the internet!

One of my favorite directors, Julie Taymor, is releasing a movie based on one of my favorite plays, the Tempest. Some time ago, through Izquierdo Studio, was able to work on this project. In one scene, the character Ariel (coincidentally my favorite character) wears a dark costume made of shrapnel, and tar, and lots of other black oily things! I, along with my friend and co-worker Amy Williams, and others at Izquierdo's, made those wings!

And I am super excited about the fact that they made it into a few seconds of the trailer! Watch, and see!

New Shirts

So, I am halfway through building a screenprinting studio for myself, but just couldn't wait. Here are some new shirts I made with some old screens, in photos I took on a strange excursion down south, which I may or may not tell the world more about.

And guess what! You can purchase them for your very own!

Acquire the black one HERE

Upcoming Events!

Hello everyone! I know it has been a while! Due to computer issues and the general craziness of life, I have not been able to post. The insanity has, in part, been due to preparations for upcoming events. And here they are!

First, on September 7th, a show entitled Utopia, at Les Poisson rouge. Presented by the talented Jihae, more info can be found HERE.

Second, I shall be doing a mask making demo at the Maker Faire! I've had my eye on this event for a while, and vowed to participate in it as soon as I could get myself out to San Francisco, where it originated. But alas! It has come to my city! Click on the icon for more info!

See me at Maker Faire!

And third, I will be presenting my first ever collection marketed for ready to wear sales, at Brooklyn Indie Market, on October 24th. More info and plenty of teasers on this event soon! It's gonna be a big one, folks!

More soon! I promise!

Upcoming Events!

I shall be vending this event on all three weekends with Kuriouser and Kuriouser! Come see me! Come buy strange garments and accessories! Come ogle at the phenomena of physics that is my vending tent! Hope to see you there! If you are good, I might even let you look at the log that I brought all the way from Vermont to display bracelets on! More info HERE. About the faire... not the log....

This is an event I am looking forward to very much. I am dressing Desert Sin for their scintillating piece, Onania. The show has a killer line-up. Come see things that I am certain will shock, amaze, and baffle you! Certainly not for the faint of mind, weak of heart, and anyone younger than legal drinking age. It is at Galapagos Art Space, a venue worth seeing in and of itself.

Hopefully I've sold you on it. Now attend it! And enjoy yourself!

A Break

My hands and feet are busted. I have mastered the art of quadruple-tasking, and have found out just how possible it is to survive and revive on Gatorade and sheer will. Throwing up, passing out due to dehydration, and somehow bruising my eye socket all before an 8 hour workday seems to be telling me that working too hard might actually be a health issue.

However, for four days, I am on vacation. In Vermont. I knitted most of a sweater on the train up, and have a list of art I've been meaning to get around to. Let us see if it happens.

And... I just saw a moose.

Enchanted Menagerie!

Here are photos from the Enchanted Menagerie event, in which I had a fashion show that felt a bit like a retrospective... I dressed all my models like animals (except Olivia, who was dressed as a strange thing in a mask) from different collections of mine over the years. I am of the belief that the show would have been spectacular, even if my models were dressed in burlap sacks, since their energy and movement was so wonderful! Thank you to everyone!

Events Coming Up!

This weekend, a multimedia spectacular will be occurring at Galapagos Art Space in Dumbo, NYC. Sunday night I will be having a fashion show with some of my more theatrical pieces, and some really great music! And did I mention that this event is FREE??? Holy rusted metal Batman, check out some more info HERE.

Though, for the first time, I may actually be having an assistant in my place for this show because I have paintings in the art show in BALTICON!!! and I must attend for networking reasons. If you are in the Baltimore area, come have fun with us artsy nerds!

And on June 25th, I shall be showing a collection at The Enchanted Menagerie, and kicking off Pride week with a bang! I will post a flier soon, as well as photos of my new paintings!

Steampunk World's Faire Aftermath

Hello all, I have finally gotten over the delectable feeling of getting hit by the truck that is a fashion show, and have some of my personal photos to share with you. I'm sure there will be many posts about this event, as there were a plethora of photographers there, and if I find my costumes in their pictures, I will gladly share them. At the moment, Anna Fischer has some lovely ones of the different designer's looks, taken immediately after they came off the runway.

The fashion show was a fantastic event, coordinated by Brit Frady-Williams, a talented designer herself. She has actually been selected to participate in London fashion week in September this year, but like many gifted designers at this level, lacks the sufficient funds to get there. She is taking donations, and her Kickstarter project can be found HERE. If you can, please consider giving even a little bit to this cause, and I will consider it a favor to me. Brit has really helped me to publicize my work, and is a great person to boot. If anyone deserves to go to London and show it what she's got it's her.

Alright, that having been said, on to the pictures! Most if not all of these were taken by Nick Levinos, a musical fellow who is currently scoring a future show of mine!

Hillary Dragovich, a lovely lady who did not mind being dressed as a birdcage.
The ever expressive Marc Robinson

After the show was finally over, we got to have a photoshoot out near the parking lot.

Kuriouser & Kuriouser

So, as I have previously mentioned, my good friend Kelly Kotulak is a very talented a sculptress, prop maker and jewelry designer. We have recently joined forces under the banner Kuriouser & Kuriouser, a new vending identity that you may now see at various faires and conventions all along the east coast. We also have a shiny new BLOG that you can check out, with lots of pictures of our collaborative adventures.

So come see us at events! Buy my costumes and corsets and her jewelry! Or at least come into our new nomadic curiosity shop that we are beginning to call home!

Goings on and Happenstances...

So in the 3 weeks since FAT, I have vended at the Spoutwood Farm Faery Festival with Kuriouser and Kuriouser, a collaboration and vending entity between myself and sculptress/jewelry designer Kelly Kotulak. One week later I had a spectacular photoshoot with photographer Adrian Buckmaster and hair/makeup artist Irene Delgado. A week after that, (this last weekend) I participated in a fashion show at the Steampunk World's Faire.

And now I am resting, because no rest for 5 weeks straight makes certain Kristin's feel like they've been hit by a truck that means well. And then takes their voice...

Anyway, more about most of this stuff later, when I've properly eaten enough spinach to knock Popeye into oblivion, and listened to enough Janis Joplin to propel a revolution! As for right now, observe the Pre-Raphaelite beauty of Adrian's photos, as I fall into a well deserved coma.
