Okay, so I am finally delivering on my promise of accessory pictures from Halloween. And bonus, I found a very brief blurb I wrote from the character’s point of view.
Both items I made myself, with the aid of jewelry making tools, a hot glue gun, and a pair of gardening shears.
Yes, gardening shears. I had to cut a length of dowel rod for the cat-o-nine-tails, and there was nary a saw to be found. The shears worked quite well, actually.
And now, your introduction to the steampunk dominatrix, Madame J:
There is an aspect of my profession that I particularly enjoy. You could say it was a lust for power that makes it so entertaining, but that isn’t quite it. It is more of a desire to be needed. Wanted. I’ll tell you a secret, little lover: when I make you ask for something (a caress), plead for something (a smack) it’s because I want you to need me, just for a moment. But I bet you already knew that, didn’t you? It’s why you’re smiling.
Behave, boys and girls.
