COGstumes and GEARments Badlands Costume Contest Loot

Bursting onto the Austin artist scene is COGstumes and GEARments! (AKA Geared Up)

More than likely you have seen the man behind the work, Cozmo Osric Galloway, wandering a convention or two at which point you can just stand back and say, "Whoa..." Cozmo handcrafts his goggles, altitude masks, gloves, hats and more that integrate leather, brass and cogs. Be sure to check out his unique and original pieces when you see him at the Elysium Badlands Shindig, his work does not dissappoint! Also be sure to be on the look out for Merriweather Gueneviere Galloway as well; many of her outfit pieces have been crafted by Cozmo as well!
