In between orders and trying to get caught up, I’ve been making new things here and there - like this spiked leo collar. Right now I’m really into clear pvc paired with gold hardware. For years and years, it was silver hardware or nothing for me. Trying to source the same hardware across multiple finishes is close to impossible, but I try to offer both (or more) when I can. If it isn’t listed in the ordering options, just ask! I’ll do my best to make it happen.

Repost from the talented, amazing @tentaclehaus wearing the FXXK Choker in purple, a collaboration with @anhedonie - 20% of purchase price is donated to #raices


FUCK wearing purple metallic eyeshadows and going on a walk with all the spring pollen in the air made my eyes freak the FUCK out yesterday. I don’t miss going to work like that. But I do love purple eyeshadow. #purplemakeup #purpleeyeshadow #purplehaze

Tfw you finally get the fog machine working. πŸ’–β˜οΈ


These are the hands that make every single item, every order. Not the prettiest hands, and they’re certainly dry right now from all the handwashing (wash your hands!), but they’re mine. The press-on nails make me feel a little bit more elegant.

πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– Some might know this, some might not, but I do almost all of the @apatico product photography myself. On May 1st I was supposed to move all photography equipment into a designated, secondary studio space. Unfortunately that is delayed because the current tenant of that space is an installation artist. With museums closed, her work is in limbo, and so we’ve all agreed to delay all the moving. I’m super lucky to have a rad business landlord; super lucky to have a designated workspace at all. In the meantime though I’ve been playing with party lights and smoke machines in my living room. These were shot at the beginning of WA stay home order.

❀ Hello, it’s been a bit! It’s been very difficult to work on orders the past few weeks, with limited access to my studio space. What orders I could bring home to work on, I did. Some orders were impossible to work on at home (primarily leather items as the equipment I use is not portable) and I am very sorry for the delay on those, and very thankful for your patience. In the meantime, I kept busy making face masks like many other creatives and played around with product photography in my living room.

My state, WA, has extended the stay at home order to May 31st. However, tomorrow begins phase one of the plan to as allow some businesses to reopen. I will be resuming work in my studio, alone, and begin making, processing, and shipping all orders as normal. I’ll also be looking into a more streamlined local pickup option.

It’s a really scary and uncertain time for so many small businesses and I’m no exception - dealing with anxiety, lack of motivation, imposter syndrome, and depression all heightened by the current state of things as well. I’m so grateful for every bit of support, always, but especially now.

Shown here is the Heart Shaped Harness Bra, which is one of the orders I was able to make and ship out in the past few weeks. I love it in the translucent red pvc.

Xoxo, Megan ❀❀❀ (at Seattle, Washington)

Please read! Important updates regarding Covid-19.

Some of you may not know this, but every item on the Apatico website is handmade to order by me, Megan. I don’t necessarily consider myself a one-person business because without @meowornever holding down emails and customer support, I couldn’t do it at all! I work out of a large studio in the industrial Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, which is located in a spacious warehouse. While I keep a clean and sanitary studio normally, I’ve taken extra measures lately. Cleaning and sanitizing surfaces/doorknobs/tools, wearing gloves at all times during the making process, etc. The state of Washington has issued a two week “shelter in place” order and non-essential businesses are required to close. I can operate minimally as an online business, but I have decided to close my studio for two weeks.

If you have any questions about any current orders please email. Although this is my life and livelihood, it feels wrong to push sales right now. So I won’t be advertising or tagging any products right now. Instead I am going to take this time to share the many amazing images that customers have tagged @apatico in.

I do admit, I’m scared about the future of my business. If anyone does want to support right now, all gift certificates are 20% off right now with code STAYSAFE and free US shipping with code MARCH2020.

Thank you for all your support these years, stay safe, stay inside, and wash your hands.

Much love,
Megan (at Seattle, Washington)
