I'm the Coquettish Haberdasher, the Velvet Alchemist, the original Infamous Sagittarius. I'm a mad midnight crafter with a deep love of plaids, pleats, Goth couture, and many things geektastic. I'm here because I want to accomplish two things: One, manage my PCOS. Two, fit back into the aforementioned plaid pleated Goth couture. ;)

Other Information:
"I suppose I fit the traditional mold of the brainy, freaky, oddball kid who reads too much, so bright that his genius is sometimes mistaken for just being retarded. I know a lot of trivia, and I often use words that sound made-up but that actually turn out to be in the dictionary, to everyone’s surprise – but I can never manage to keep my shoes tied or figure out anything to say if someone addresses me directly. I play it up. It’s all I’ve got going for me, and if a guy can manage to leave the impression that his awkwardness arises from some kind of deep or complicated soul, why not go for it? But, I admit, most of the time, I walk around here feeling like a total idiot." – King Dork by Frank Portman

    I came to your page to leave a comment about Indigenous Peoples Day and got absolutely distracted by your photo of the next Supreme (I just started re-watching Murder House yesterday).

    You costumes are brilliant, love them.

    And I came to say, despite being in the UK, my daughter has a Year book of stories which is from the US, and we discussed the story about Columbus yesterday, pointing out he couldn't really discover a place already occupied, and a brief comment (as she is only 6) on the things people did.

    I am glad we live in a world where at least some people are trying to change for the better. I added you as a friend.
