Mystery box

A messenger brings a puzzle box to Woolcott's Millinery.

Who could have sent it? What could it contain?

And will the Vixens be able to solve the puzzle in time?

It's a good thing Emma keeps a set of lockpicks handy.

En garde

Miss Quinn reverse-engineers the Red Sigma death ray, and invents a sheilding device. But will it be enough to protect her and her teammates, or will Red Sigma's scientist come up with even more sinister technology?

Woolcott's Millinery and Haberdashery

The Woolcott family has owned and operated their shop for three generations.

The current shop is located at a quiet intersection at the edge of town, and certainly does not have a secret underground passage to any brick outbuildings.

The outlandish rumours about the shop and its proprietors are, of course, only rumours and hearsay.

Mind you, if one were to find oneself on desperate trouble, without hope of rescue or remedy, and if one were to drop a note about said trouble on the floor of the shop ... Well, who knows what might happen?

Entirely by coincidence, of course.

Apologies, my dears, this week's Vixens Vendredi is a bit late getting off the ground. But where I am, it is still Friday, at least while I am writing this.

For this week, we get a look at a few of Emma's hat design concepts.

It has been one of those weeks where everything got a little bit away from me. I've been busy with other projects, and trying to find (more) work, and in the meantime trying to make do with what I've got by loading lots of items to my eBay store ( for those of you keeping score at home.)

I'll try to make sure next week's Vixens Vendredi has a little more substance and polish.

Perhaps starting with the hat decorated with a miniature robot hummingbird.

Until next week, my lovelies.

Philip Woolcott - not just a pretty face

Getting a look at Philip Woolcott, proprietor (on paper) of Woolcott's Millinery, and leader (in the reports) of the Steampunk Vixens.

But he's not just a pretty face with puppy-dog eyes. He's an engineer almost as smart as Kelly, and a sharp-shooter almost as dangerous as Violet.

Emma taught him to play chess when he was little, and he's pretty good at it.

She recruited him to the team when he finished school, and they often work as a team in the field.

They developed a sign language code when they were children, and still use it for secret messages during missions, or to communicate when there's a risk of the bad guys overhearing them.
