Greetings, Earthlings, and welcome to my little slice of Mars on Earth.

As a Martian Cultural Emissary, I have dedicated my life to making this lovely blue planet a little more fabulous through vision, style, and villainy. I am a freelance costume designer, working both in live theatre and on individual commissions, and an independent Sociologist, with research focusing on gender, media, and fan culture.

For adventures in costuming, visit Frenemy Cosplay, a blog dedicated to bringing you the truth about cons and cosplay, written by yours truly and my matching action figure, Sabine. For other goings-on, explore the tags at right and check back or follow for updates.

This machine kills fascists and this gun is for hire. So if you need some help causing a stir, email me at joxwest@gmail.com.
