out now is just regurgitated and changed a little. So, you know, punk has become Lolita, and goth is just a softer, flowing version of punk. So it's all the same.
How many pieces are you doing for the fashion show?
Wrestling's not a job. Norman used to own the Paradise City Caf and he had the swimwear store down at the mall, so there was a lot of Lycra spandex left over. So I've been teaching him how to sew and he's been making tights and we have quite a few pro wrestlers it's not the WWE, but they are pro, and we make a lot of stretchy spandex pants.
Is there anything else that you want to talk about with regards to your stuff? It's an amazing history, with all kinds of different clothes.
How did you get from surf to steampunk? Is it just a natural progression?
We were selling we had a few swimsuits left over and were selling them, and a couple people said, Oh, do you have some jammers? Can you make jammers? And so I started making jammers. Then a weightlifting person contacted Norman and asked if they could do tights . and then we made the tights. And that guy sent more guys and then people just started coming.
Um, just in my head. See, everything that's Puma Ignite Orange
Well, I have a lot of years in theater. I can't even remember my life.
How did you get into that? Because you had the material left over, or Puma Basket Heart Sneakers

try and do 15. This is my big bang.
Kitsch. Because it's more a hobby, because I'm kind of agoraphobic, so this is major, for me to show up at the show.
Is that your main focus, or do you do that as part of your job and then there's the . it seemed like the stuff that Laura was showing me at Redoux was not so much the wrestling Basket Puma Heart Patent wear but maybe some other things that you're working on?
How long have you been sewing? Making clothing?
It's all across the board. I figured if it's going to be a show, I'm going to try to do some big pieces, some fun stuff.
There was some . well, what I wanted to do was I'm pretty much housebound because I have panic disorder, but I've been in the sewing industry for a really long time. Norman's boss's daughter was taking some classes at Redoux, so I went down there to check it out and decided I'd make a few things to put in the store, and the she [Laura Lee Laroux] called me to do the fashion show.
Do you do stuff for Faerieworlds, Burning Man, things like that? Do you think your clientele buys for things like that?
I'm going to Puma Ignite Dual Black
No, I don't have a job. I'm just doing this it was a hobby thing, and then I wanted to pass on what I know to other people, and so far, the only taker was Norman.
In 1980 I brought the first tattoo art to market with the ASR, the Action Sports Retailer, and they said that it would never take off and there'd never be a thing such as surf punk. I started out with Life's a Beach, which is No Fear, and I had teamed up with . his name was Mark Kaufman but, oh Mad Marc Rude. He did all the original flyers for like the Misfits, the Dead Kennedys, Circle Jerks and stuff like that. And so we printed up a whole bunch of his art onto fabric and started making surf clothes [under Life's a Beach]. And then I went up to Los Angeles and worked with my friend for a while that had a label called LAX . and so I've been in the surf industry a long time.
Is there a focus, or is it all kinds of different stuff?
. it seems like kind of an unusual thing to do.
Well, I'm one of these people who wait until the last minute. We have some spandex with big boots, some big skirts, there's gonna be some big, big skirts, and we're gonna try and do some wings if I can. I'm gonna try. I haven't done them yet.
So this is your full job you don't have a day job.
Where do you draw the inspiration for this stuff from?
So you sell your stuff on eBay and at Redoux. Is there anywhere else that it's available?
It's Spandex Body. It's just an eBay thing.
How did you get into the steampunk Lolita gothic kind of stuff?
On Norman's internet site they've bought heavily for Burning Man.
