A Very Sherlockian PJ Party

I have the distinct pleasure of having helped raise $16,000 for wounded and disabled veterans the past three years thanks to The Baker Street Babes Daintiest Charity Ball. Amazing and generous people donate arts, crafts, and collectibles to us and we auction them off during the annual BSI Weekend. BSI Weekend is basically a week in…

Boo! On Ghosts, Spirits, & Tom Hiddleston’s Ass

Tomorrow is Halloween, All Hallow’s Eve, the day where our world and whatever notion of the afterlife/Veil/Fade you believe or don’t believe in are the closest.

Disney’s Princesses With A Korean Twist

Nayoung Wooh aka Obsidian is a professional illustrator in South Korea who has taken some of Disney’s most famous iterations of fairy tales and given them an historical Korean twist. Gone are the European gowns and seashells and instead these beautiful pieces have the well-known heroines in delicate hanboks. I love it when artists take…
