Ashley O’Neil: I’m a 22 year old tattoo artist living in Windsor. I currently work at Vibe Studios on Pelissier, where I’ve been for 3 years. I have a total of around 4 years experience. But tattooing is not the only art I like to practice. Some of my other hobbies include: – drawing/painting/murals/portraits -beadwork/jewelry making -sewing -woodwork/sculpting -guitar/vocals (for local band Thick As Thieves) And whatever else has caught my attention that day.

Kat Miller: Phoenix Phrog & Something Clever
What is ‘Something Clever’? That’s a good question. I’m not altogether sure myself. All I know, is that I made it (with a lot of help), and it’s awesome. Mostly it’s clothes; occasionally bags and purses and other odds and ends. I do a lot of paintings. I prefer to stay away from realism. That’s what photographs are for. Everything is handmade, So for the most part everything is unique. The shirts I print, however, are bought. It’s more cost effective for everyone that way. Which, I think most of us can appreciate given the financial status of… well, the world right now.

Jamie Harway: Scentsational Skin, all natural, homemade sugar body scrubs and body butters. Coconut oil is the main ingredient in each of the scrubs, and shea butter is the main ingredient in the butter. Each of the scrubs slough off dead skin as well as moisturize. Great for dry skin and eczema. Each scent has its own personal benefit such as alertness, relaxation, helps for trouble sleeping, and keeping wrinkles away.

Daisy Devine: To explain why i make the craft i have chosen i have to explain a bit of my history in burlesque. I got into this because of overwhelming inspiration from some local talents. I had a very amazing opportunity to be apart of theatre bizzare in Detroit and was just floored by the talents. The amazing costumes, the empowering feeling i got watching these performers take over the room. I was mezmerized! I decided to give this a try and fell in love with the art form immediately. The acts and costume possiblities are endless and i started needing to make some pieces myself. Pasties happen to be one of those vital pieces i had to learn to make to accomidate my acts. I was lucky enough to Roxi D’lite teach me the way of the pastie. She taught me how to make my first set and from there my obsession with the patterns and possiblities took over. I can now make over 100 different styles of pasties and pretty well anything upon request. Burlesque is such a body positive, and impressing form of art and i urge every girl to give this small piece of costume a try. Any girl can fit them and they arent for any particular reason. I hope i find some ladies who enjoy them as much as I do. For custom pasties please email me at [email protected] I can also teach you a few tricks on spinning if you happen to buy a pair with tassels ;) Happy Twirling,
Daisy Devine
