About Me

Really...Derp?

My friend came up with the idea to call my store "Derp". I contemplated for a long time about this (you've seen the memes). I ended up resting on it because I wanted something easy and fun to remember. It's all about enjoying life, smiling, and not taking too yourself seriously. 

I personally hand-make every item in this shop (I AM A REAL HUMAN...who sometimes likes to identify as alien). 
I sell leviwands and contact wands, hoods of all different types, and the newly added FIRE SAFE harness hoods and Nunchaku!

I LOVE DOING CUSTOM WORK!! I love collaborating with you to create your perfectly taped wand or the hood of your dreams. Nothing is off limits - so shoot me a message to get started. Let's create something beautiful together.

THANK YOU for the constant support and love. YOU ARE the reason that I do what I do.

Claire Lathrop

Claire is an artist of many forms living in Kansas City, Missouri. She is currently in school to become an art teacher to be able to share this passion with others.

Claire uses flow as another form of expression and often uses this physical form of expression as a break from visual expression and painting. She has been flowing with a Levi Wand for about 3.5 years and has recently been revisiting short string and contact, but has a special place in her heart for long-string fluid flow.

I saw my first Levitation Wand at Electric Forest in 2016 and fell completely in love with the illusion. Growing up, I wanted to be a magician; I practiced card tricks and many other simple tricks. Chris Angel was my favorite illusionist and I wanted to be just like him! As I had gotten older my drive to practice diminished and my dream of becoming a magician faded as well, but after seeing a levitation wand I knew this flow prop would open up a new world of magical mystery that I would absolutely love, and I was right!

I started my Levitation Wand journey on May 31st of 2017, right before Electric Forest (1 year after seeing one, I still wish I would have started this amazing journey sooner) and ever since then this stick on a string has really changed my life. During hard spouts of depression and anxiety attacks, I turn to my wand for comfort and it has really impacted my healing process when I hit my darkest times. I don’t know who I would be without my wand.

My main types of flow are long string, baton twirls, and contact moves with hopes of learning double wands soon as well! My dream is to become a performer one day and spread magic of illusion to everyone around me.

Not the average Basshead ninja! I've been flowing since my first Electric Forest in 2016.

I discovered my inner kung foo ninja flow when I picked up my first pair of nunchucks!

I love all things weird and blue.

Charlie

A creative mind with a playful heart, you can charge me as guilty for having too much fun with my flow. I started my flow journey on October of 2017 and became enamored with the wand life.

The wand is my favorite dance partner and is as adaptable as I am in music genres and the environments we find ourselves in. From the bedroom to Las Vegas, the backyard to the Appalachian Mountains, we dance and most importantly HAVE FUN in the moment. 

Have fun, smile, be a goof, and eat that doughnut you deserve it!

Hello flowmies!
I'm from a small northern Minnesota town, Grand Rapids. I just started my flow journey in July of 2018 with my first leviwand! Instantly I fell in love.

After I attended Dancefestopia as my first festival, I realized how AMAZING this community is! It made me want to learn other props, I have 4 wands! I plan to learn multiple props very soon. 

I've realized when I dance with my wand I feel free. It's meditation to me. It calms me. My wand makes me feel happy and my worries go away while I'm flowing. 

If you are feeling upset, just dance away my friend.
