The Gotham Girls All-Stars are back and They Are Victorious! Coming in Numero Uno at the WFTDA National Tournament in Portland, OR, these badass ladies are overjoyed, worn out and unfortunately, brokedy-broke. Traveling across country to compete in the nationals ain't cheap, so the GGRD's are auctioning off 2 sets of limited editions autographed photo's on eBay to offset travel expenses and continue on their record breaking twelve game winning streak. Bidding ends December 17 so pony up the cash before it's too late.

  So sad, but so true: presumably due to this circular hell of an economic crisis, Built by Wendy, longtime paragon of quirky/classic style, will close both its San Francisco and LA boutiques on December 28th. Which, of course, means wickedly discounted merch for you west coasties, but it's definitely a tears and clenched teeth sort of shopping experience. Fortunately, it appears that BBW's east coast shops will remain unharmed, and the online store is still alive and kicking (and featuring some pretty wicked sales of its own).

Photo by Bill Wingel Obviously you're so excited about the Bust Holiday Craftacular on Sunday, that you probably haven't thought about what else you should do to entertain yourself this weekend. Guess what's happening on Saturday? That's right; approximately 2,000 Santas will be spreading the Christmas cheer around N.Y.C. Throw on your Santa Suit, make one, be giant Menorah, or maybe a * in a box, just come! (No pun intended.) Be sure to check nycsantacon.com tonight, for the 10am start location tomorrow.

Laura Burnham is one of the super cool designers participating in this Sunday's BUST Stylist's Closet, a part of our Holiday Craftacular! It will be such a time! Along with Howell Jewelry, there is a huge range of designers. I mean, we're talking 80%20 shoes, Hellkats LA, Doc Martins, the hugely popular (a la Gossip Girl) Boy Meets Girl. And a dozen more! For just 10 buck-a-roos, you get to rifle through all the designers and TAKE home (for keeps baby!) one item of your choice. For ten bucks. Seriously. The Closet, attached to the BUST Holiday Craftacular, is open at 2 PM...

This Sunday is New York's BUST Holiday Craftacular! So rad. Over 200 hundred booths full of goodies. Goodies you can't get at normal stores. Meaning they're 100% hand-made or indie-designed (aka 100% awesome). Ever since I saw Lucy at the Museum of Natural Science, I've had a huge girl crush on fossils. So, naturally (pun intended), Photosynthesis is one of the many vendors I am pumped for at the BUST Holiday Craftacular . vintage dresses + leaves found around NYC + fossilization + screen printing = cute.

Everyone in the office kinda went loopy for these adorable undies that Callie pulled for a shoot recently, and I'm excited to see that they will be at the Craftacular this Sunday-yay! These come in boy or girls styles, only 15 bucks. They also make shirts, dresses and bags. Check out Ruffeo Hearts Lil' Snotty at table # 118.

This might be the BUSTiest comic I've brought you yet, darlings. And yet it's been recommended to me by oodles of boys, which just goes to show that good writing, despite lots of idiots thinking otherwise, is good writing no matter the gender of its lead characters or creators. I wanted to go dancing earlier today, after shoving off the weight of term papers on weightier subjects, and then I read this comic, and now I REALLY want to go dancing. I didn't read the first Phonogram but I read (and BUST-ed) Suburban Glamour and got a super-comics-crush on Jamie McKelvie's sugar-candy-sweet art.

Deja Taylor is not your average performer. At only 19 years old, she is an award-winning spoken word artist, a playwright and will be featured in a 2009 HBO Documentary about youth slam poetry. She's also not afraid to step up for causes she believes in. Deja recently joined forces with DJ Spooky to produce a video for NARAL Pro-Choice's free.will.power. initiative. Power is the third video in a three-part series that takes a fresh look at what it means to be pro-choice today. The free.will.
