nyami-rose  asked:

I've heard a lot of people say that your bootwings were the first ever bootwings. I don't know if that's true, but if it is, I've seen a lot of knock-offs of your bootwings appear on Etsy, and now I see a set of boots with detachable bat wings on ThinkGeek. How do you feel about other crafters and/or companies manufacturing similar bootwings?

My instinctive gut response when I see a pair of knock-offs that’re obviouly direct copies of mine (Not counting the ThinkGeek detachables- while cool, they can’t be moved to other boots, or corsets, or anything else lace-able) runs a little like this: 

Then I breathe. 

I remember that this is a world of infinite creation, where ten thousand monkeys on ten thousand typewriters could indeed bang out the complete works of BaconShakespeare given enough time. 

I remember that Bootwings were really a pretty simple idea, and that anyone could’ve stumbled upon them. 

I remember that I too adapted the concept from these little sneaker-wing products (much smaller, non-leathery, and no batwing option last I checked). 

I remember that the courts have already set the precedent down in stone that no fashion idea can truly be copyrighted, plaguing the world forever with millions of horrible (yet affordable) chinese knockoffs. And that no matter how hard I try, getting their shit pulled, even if I were successful, would never pay off in terms of the time and effort put into it. 

I breathe again, rolling out the exhalation into seventeen syllables of latin, two glottal stops, a name, and another four syllables of corrupted russian, causing one of the many candles above the worktables to come alight with unholy green fire. I continue in my work, knowing I have things up my sleeve that they never will, knowing that talent skill and cunning will win out in the end, knowing that THERE’S A PRICE TO EVERYTHING DEARIE, AND SOME DAYS THAT PRICE IS YOU. 

And then I move on. 

So, care for some Bootwings

Or Ravenwings? The leather’s simply TO DIE FOR this time of year. 

Places I’ve seen Hermes

- in my job, where I send/deliver the mail for my department

- Most days after work, with different dogs running up to hug me and annoying their owners when they refuse to move until I pet them.

- In my classmate, who came into class wearing sparkling gold sneakers with wings

- Remnants in the park, a broken glass perfect for holding an offering of flowers

- In the statuette held in the museum a walk away from campus

- In the hawks that watch me at work and on the road

- Especially that one hawk that let me get five feet from it on my first day of classes

- in the wind when you’re going fast
