Papusza Feature on HerHattanNYC and Spring Sale on LIMBS!!!!

Have a look at the fabulous feature that HerHattan NYC did on Papusza Art Couture. You can read a bit about my current collection, Paramicha, and also find out a bit more about where my art comes from.

Also, I will be doing a Spring Sale on LIMBS starting today, through April 15th, or while supplies last. I have almost every color available, and will be adding a few new ones in the upcoming week including brown, black and wine. Normally they are $28 a pair, but will be available through the 15th for $20 a pair or 2 for $35. They are a very stylish way to transition into your Spring wardrobe, if you are still struggling with chilly winter weather.

Life Outside NY Part 1: Austin and SXSW

As many of you know I am on a bit of a leave from New York for a few months. After doing nearly a dozen shows in less then a 6 month period, moving from Brooklyn into Manhattan and barely ever getting to leave the city for things other then work I decided it was time for a break. I have been living in the big apple now for about 4 years, and although I love it enormously I have gotten so caught up in the hustle and bustle of existing there that I had forgotten what life outside New York was like. I am happy to report that the escape has been awakening and I am happy to be on this trip.

My first stop was Austin, where I spent a little more then a month. Got to make some art with my dear friend and associate Desideria Adame and spend some fun times in the great little city of ATX. It was quite a charming place and I will definitely be returning.

The finale week of the trip was South by Southwest, one of the many great film and music festivals in Austin. I saw a ton of awesome bands-my favorite the "Japanese Action Comic Punk" band Peelander-Z. I also got to see a ton of great friends who where visiting for or playing at the festival-a couple of which I hadn't seen in over a year. One of the highlights was taking a ride on a giant mustache seasaw.

See photos of some of my favorite moments below. Stay tuned for more on my adventures of life outside the big city.

Gemma Fleming's "SPARE" Featuring Papusza LIMBS

In January my darling friend, associate and fellow artist Gemma Fleming debuted her most recent short film, SPARE at HNM's Pain Exhibit. SPARE features performances by Maxine Nienow and Michaeline Sexton, among others. I had the pleasure of custom making Papusza LIMB tights and a mask for the areal portion of the film. LIMBS are for sale, and can be purchased from me if you email me at or go through my Smashing Darling. For a full list of the talented people involved in creating this piece go here or you can check out SPARE below. Also, look at Gemma's website to see details about her upcoming show in Manhattan, "Not a Fairy Tale."
