Steampunk Goggles

We’re still in the Big Apple, but all through Comic Con, Kings was getting TONS of requests for his fabulous goggles he custom made for myself and our friend Emily. He just added a few pairs to his very shiny and new Etsy Shop for his comic Honey & the Whirlwind- Honeyandthewhirlwind.etsy.com.

Kings’ Steampunk Aviator goggles are inspired by his character Divi, but at not just for cosplay and LARP. They are super high quality and each pair is lovingly handmade. He also offers custom goggles, so if you have an idea you are dying to have steampunk’ed shoot him an email (kings{at}honeyandthewhirlwind.com)

One last fantastic announcement- his goggles are going to be featured in an upcoming production of Steampunk Hamlet in NYC in November. More info & pics will follow!

Here is this shop: honeyandthewhirlwind.etsy.com

Comic Con… so far!

Ah!  a quick update– so far NYCC is a blast!! So many fantastic people, panels, & merch! Also, Tim has gotten tons of compliments on his goggles, so as soon as we get back, we’ll be putting a bunch up on our Etsy shop.

We have a TON of awesome stories, including how I met Brian Lee O’Malley of Scott Pilgrim fame while cosplaying as Ramona.

We just came back from Lord of the Rings at Radio City Music Hall. It was so incredible. Only thing that was a major bummer is that none of the fan art was shown before the show as promised… We at the Cats were pretty stoked to see two of our members’ art make it onto the big screen.  But anyways, the show was fantastic- amazing singers and orchestra!

More later!!
