Brute Force Studios
Due to a sudden and unforeseen medical issue. Thomas will not be Vending at Wicked Fair this weekend and may not be able to return some correspondence. He is presently resting comfortably and should be up and about soon.
Sincerely, The Staff @ Brute Force Studios.
Formerly known as Brute Force Leather and Fallen Angel Fashions, Brute Force Studios are purveyors of fine art and mad science, including high-end corsetry and steampunk accessories. Owner, maker, and artist Thomas Willeford first started making corsets and costume pieces back in 1996 because there was so much badly-made, mass-produced stuff out there. Thomas is also the author of the critically acclaimed steampunk how-to book “Steampunk Gear, Gadgets, and Gizmos” (McGraw-Hill). He and his products have been widely featured on television (MTV, BBC, “Castle”, “Oddities”), online (Wired, BoingBoing, Forbes, Popular Mechanics), and in print (Bizarre, Hustler, Gothic Beauty, True West). Satisfied customers include musician Rick Springfield, director David Silverman (The Simpsons), and actresses Patricia Tallman (Babylon 5) and Virginia Hey (Farscape). Thomas is currently collaborating with actor/producer Bruce Boxleitner on the upcoming steampunk television series “Lantern City”. We’ve overcome flooding, knock-offs of our products, and a bad economy but after sixteen years, we’re still here!

Cucina Aurora Kitchen Witchery
A Kitchen Witch is any one who has ever said a prayer over a meal. She is any one who has ever thought of the smiling faces on her guests when they taste the dinner she has made. He is any one who has ever put love into a surprise dinner that he made for his sweetheart. The Kitchen Witch puts intention in the foods that she or he eats and shares with others. There are many other elements to Kitchen Witchery, but these are the basics. When we put our intentions in the foods we eat then we are there by physically taking in the energies we have put out.
We Kitchen Witches believe in home, family, and the nurturing of those things above all. Home is our sacred place and the kitchen becomes our sanctuary.

Dryad Tea was born in February 2012 from the mind of tea aficionado and music lover, Rubiee Tallyn Hayes. At first, Rubiee’s goal was to bring amazing, musically inspired teas to everyone. But as the popularity of her teas grew, this goal expanded to include works of art, and literature as well. The first line of teas was inspired by Pandora Celtica’s music, characters, and world. The second line went on to embody the characters of ‘The Keys of Kalijor’ series of novels by Paul Lell. In the future,Dryad Tea is looking to create tea lines inspired by other artists and their amazing works. Dryad Tea’s goal is to have fun with tea, creating flavors and blends that may be unexpected, but never disappointing. Or ingredients are 98% organic, and though we strive to make it 100%, it is nearly impossible to get some ingredients organically. We strive to create the highest quality loose leaf tea blends while still adhering to our more “geeky” roots. Dryad Tea is a one-woman operation, with the occasional press-ganged help when the need arises. Rubiee is very fond of using the “royal we” in talking about her work. She finds it makes her feel a lot less awkward to talk about things that way.

Goth Fae / Steampunk Dollie
“Goth Fae / Steampunk Dollie” offers an intriguing blend of Steam-Goth and Victorian Retro-Futuristic styles, accented with a splash of sideshow spice, to present a mixture of clothing that will appeal to a wide range of alternative-fashion enthusiasts.
The “Storyville 1900″ group of designs is influenced by the early 1900′s “ladies” of Storyville New Orleans. It includes bustles, bloomers, camisoles and lacy cover-ups, .
“Midnight Sideshow”, introduced at this past year’s SPWF, is Gothic / dark circus / burlesque in theme. It includes both newly designed, discordantly colored patchwork designs plus one-of-a-kind, deconstructed, up-cycled garments, all of which conjure up images of a seedy post-apocalyptic traveling carnival.
All of the clothing and co-ordinating accessories reflect designer Jeanne M. Thompson’s lifelong appreciation of vintage style, and a slightly twisted sense of humor.
I would love it if everything we touched, every day, was an object of art; if even the most common thing we used was beautiful and unique. This is my small attempt to contribute to that ideal. The products here are mostly pyrographed wood, with a Pagan or Earth-centered theme. The majority of pieces are home goods and sturdy ritual items, with a few purely decorative whimsies sprinkled throughout. While I find the raw materials in many different places–flea markets, garage sales, other artisans, and even, on occasion, an actual store–all of the work you see has been hand-pyrographed (burned) by me. I don’t use any routers, engravers, or laser-etching machines. It’s just me, the wood, and my trusty pyrography pen. What does this mean to you? This means that your piece, even if it is a pattern that I have burned a hundred times before, is going to be unique. No one will ever have exactly the same piece you have. Every piece is a one of a kind work of art.
