Featured on Fandom Base, L.D. Original Adventure Time Scarf March 27, 2013

I’m a big big fan of the show adventure time and especially the back story of Marceline the vampire queen & the Ice King, who is the former anthropologist Simon Petrikov, they’re very good characters and in honor of the latest episode chronicling their back story together, I made a special quilted, fleece sewn appliqué on double layered felt backing scarf w/both of them on it…and guess what…

WE GOT FEATURED ON MEME BASE’S FANDOM BASE FRONT PAGE!

I’m so proud! Its quite the feather in my cap, especially considering that this is about the third or fourth time I’ve tried to get featured on there or on must have cute and the firs success.  The scarves are available for purchase in my etsy, along w/lots of new costume listings, tutus, pride treats, candies, and fabulous new paintings by my shop partner Diva Lesé, who is a very talented watercolor artist.

Be sure to stop by meme base and/or my shop & show this tranny artist some love ;).

sorry i haven’t been on in quite some time, life has been crazy hectic.

 

now for unoffensive, but shameless, self promotion June 23, 2012

as you my readers know, I have an etsy store front! :O I’m a tailor/costumer and all around artist and I sell my various wares there in my shop.  What you may not know is that I also sell vintage stuff there…like typewriters, vintage vinyl, antique hats and so forth.  Be sure to check back often for the regular stock updates, I add items at least twice a week :).

I also have a nice and expanding variety of drag queen accessories, garter belts, thong underwear (and soon bras), corsets (photos coming soon), shoes and more.

Help support a starving trans artist pay the bills and start his savings pile for that elusive top surgery (I’ll start running a tally once I’ve got something in there…currently I’ve got $1, help me add to it 😀 & wish me luck!)

Much love! and enjoy the last of Pride Month 2012 (someone have a scotch old fashioned for me please? i no can has booze 😦 )

 

And now a word from our sponsors… May 8, 2012

excuse my shameless self advertising but, lookin for work & I figure posting this anywhere I know I get traffic is a good idea, CHEERS! (next article to post to VG- the incredibly gay cast of Frasier, an in deepth look at gay actors on the show…hint, it wasn’t just David Hyde Pierce and I’ll bet you’ll be surprised by at least one of them 😉 )
