Hi there!

As always in July, things are getting hectic and it's been tough to keep up with all the things, but I hope everyone's playa prep (or, for normal folks, "summer") is going well! We have a couple events coming up including a costume swap this Saturday, so dig out that leather thing you bought but have never actually worn and let it find a new life.

As always, feel free to hit me up directly at with any submissions or questions, or to reach all of us at once.
