I collect bats. My favorite bat maker is Samantha, one half of the awesome duo Frenchy and the Punk. This cute guy of Samantha’s was adopted by my niece Stacy when she trekked to New England with me for a steampunk convention. Little Ricky here has his own bat-size Isidore Tarot I made him. He delighted in giving us a reading during a break photographing my niece and the deck for my shoppe’s catalog a few years back.
