Lurker From The Atx (Austin)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I'm just getting around to introducing myself (at least I'm pretty sure I haven't done it before) after reading here and there for about a year. First off I'd like to thank you all for the informative posts and lots of inspiring pictures! I have always loved leather, the smell, feel, and sound, which is kind of funny because I'm not a meat eater. My first leather project was 2 years ago when I was inspired by some really awesome formed masks and I decided to make my own. I taught myself some tooling and painting techniques and made some pretty cool masks.

However, I'm a makeup artist and hair stylist and I had a really hard time covering gorgeous makeup with masks, so about a year ago I started getting more adventurous and complicated and making harnesses, chest pieces, belts, and jewelry. I'm finding that I prefer construction and hardware in my pieces over tooling most of the time, although I admire all the hard wok that goes into it. I lean a little bit towards the avant garde and/or fetish looking pieces. Ive most recently been making leather corsets. I also got some gorgeous skins to make myself a pair of bad-ass pants. :D I've always wanted a really nicely made pair but couldn't spare the $1000 that the good ones go for.

I look forward to seeing all the nice stuff you guys make!
