I vended at Apollocon, which was a fun, relaxed small con. I got to spend some nice time chatting with friends and presented two corset panels.
Here's myself in the Steampunk Darkwing and my friend Linda of Rosewood Stitches in her awesome, hand-embroidered outfit.
And my friend Tayleb Duque in her Mexican steampunk outfit.
The other cool thing from Apollocon is that I got to attend a needle tatting panel and now I'm totally tatting my own lace! This is so exciting because I'm rarely happy with the lace I can find and now I'm making my own. I'm looking forward to using this lace on future corsets. I'm obsessed with tatting right now, and I'm having a great time learning something new. Plus, it's totally a steampunk craft.
Speaking of corsets, here are some recent creations of mine. I'm working on several commissions right now, but don't have pictures of them.

|Laser-cut faux suede over white coutil|
|Brown Silk Dupioni Overbust|
As for where I will be in the next month, this coming weekend is the Brass Ball in Houston, where I will be vending.
And in on August 23-24th I'll be presenting a Corset Making Workshop at the Amber Inn south of Dallas.
And September brings the Steampunk Invasion and Weird West Fest.
