SISTERS OF BATTLE
What makes a nerd girl? Truly, when searching for this answer, you must ask yourself two questions: does she like nerd stuff? And is she a girl? If ‘Yes’ is the answer to both of these questions, congratulations! You’ve found a nerd girl! She’s just like any other person in the world. Sure, she likes comic books and D&D, but maybe she also likes Chanel handbags and old Britney Spears albums. And maybe she’s looking for some clothes that are equally geek and equally chic.

â€œIn a last ditch effort to convince them, the Custodes took Alicia Dominica, leader of the Brides, and her chosen bodyguards deep into the Imperial Palace where they stood before the Emperor himself. What happened there remains unknown - Dominica and her companions were sworn to secrecy - but it became clear that the Brides, who reverted to the title of Daughters of the Emperor, had been awakened to the evil that Vandire represented. Marching into his audience chamber, Dominica paused only to condemn Vandire for his crimes before she beheaded the power-crazed dictator.â€?

CREATURES OF THE GRAY FOREST

End Chapter 2
They warned her about the forest. They told her not to listen to the howls at night. But the gray forest, it called to her. It begged her to come and look, come and see the strange wild things that called it their home. The gray silk ribbon she'd tied her hair up with had long since been torn away by a feral woman with talons for hands. The poor girl, frightened and shaking, ran deeper and deeper into the woods. And the women-beasts just laughed.

My God - Itâ€™s Full of Stars chrome
This is a girl, slightly Elven in appearance, something a little dangerous by nature and smart. Sheâ€™s into history and technology, the past behind both; she loves stories and shadows and tends to hide herself in these. Shy by nature, she is up-and-coming Internet famous and frequently quotes movies that she is too young to remember.

Somewhere in cyberspace, a girl smooths her skirt; it seems to shine with many colors, all blending together like some dying nebula. The android at her side, an impossibly beautiful woman with chrome-colored eyes, smiles at her as she hacks into the strange system, opening up a mysterious, false portal. The star-girl looks into the disaster they have created, turns to her silicon human friend, and whispers in a voice like static, “My God - it’s full of stars.” There are no lights here, no reflections to shine off of her inhuman partner’s plastic dress. But beyond... beyond it shines brightly, and there are so many stars to conquer.

Rain Falls on Yoshiwara
This is a collection just for me; Iâ€™m designing it because I can and because Iâ€™m very attached to the concept. This collection was inspired by my personal love of cyberpunk and a story I read on about a prostitute from Yoshiwara - the old Red Light District in Japan who finds love. As this is such a personal collection, there is no appointed client. If anyone expressed interest in purchasing any of the looks, I would be willing to sell it to them for a negotiable price.

End Chapter 4
Far, far into the future, a girl is stolen off the streets and forced to work in Neo Yoshiwara. No one looks for her because she has no one to love â€“ she is a cyborg. They dress her up in old-smelling silk clothes; decorate her hair with fake, glittering pins, and lock her up in a cage. The men come mostly at night with gifts of sad, purple flowers and sweet, meaningless words. But there is one man who hands her a fresh sunflower through the bars of her cage, and she hopes that some night, he might be the one who buys her.
