—Marie Antoinette (2006)

 Just so everyone is clear, the handsome Black man tutoring Marie Antoinette is Joseph Boulogne, classical musician extraordinaire whose work influenced Mozart’s. This has been your Western music history tidbit of the day. Adieu!

Finally a few half decent photos of my Isabel de Requesens dress! At some point i’ll set up a nice backdrop with drapery and candles, but for right now these will have to do.

The costume was drafted, made, and worn by me. The design was based off of a painting created by Raphael and Gulio Romano in the early 1500s. 

It’s made from linen and velvet. Aside from boning channels and skirt seams it was entirely hand sewn. The embroidery and beading were done by hand as well.

I have several detailed blog posts about the project, which can be found here, and a few videos on making it which are here

Rick Nahmias, “Krystal,” ca. 2006


Krystal, a [transgender] sex worker from Puerto Vallarta, holds a devotional card of St. Jude, the Catholic patron saint of lost causes. This is the one surviving piece of her religious altar, the rest of which was stolen from her as she crossed the Mexico border. Praying daily for health and safety, she remains devoted to the ‘Holy Death’ [La Santísima Muerte], even though doing so is strongly discouraged by the religion she was born into, Catholicism.

I Need a Leg

Hey friends, so I feel kinda weird doin this, and don’t honestly know how much attention this will receive as I don’t have a super popular blog but in June I was in a houseboating accident and unfortunately lost my leg, my friends have organized a fundraiser for October but my brother also made a donation site. All the proceeds go to paying for a leg and my medical fees.

Any and all help is so deeply appreciated and even if you can’t donate even a reblog for some notice would be so awesome!

OK BUT GUYS SHE’S A REALLY AWESOME AND COOL AS HECK PERSON PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST!! 🌸✌️
