That chill is quickly sneaking into the air again. As we file for temporary separation from the summer breezes and marry ourselves to the fall season, a new wardrobe consisting of Art of Ruff designs, featuring the cutely spooky imaginings of artist Bryan Ruff, seems essential.
My favorite image, of course, is Ruff’s cutely domestic take on the Frankenstein Monster and his Bride- now celebrating their 201st anniversary, I hear – but there are plenty of other delightfully spooky options to pick from at https://www.redbubble.com/people/TheArtofRuff, as well!
So make those choices count (and no I don’t have that cute model’s number, so stop asking!!!)…and…
Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
Inspiration is found everywhere – even on Instagram and Twitter. One of the coolest people that I have come across in my internet travels is Bambi Generazzo AKA Toxic Bambi.
Describing herself as a “Robot Building Super Villain in Training,” this amazing artist is not only using her unique outlook to transform the world, but she is also bringing awareness to the world of disability. Defying and redefining her cerebral palsy diagnosis with the powerful energy of a pigtail wearing, color happy, comic loving adventuress, she is a true beacon of awesomeness.
Indeed, The Ball, the upcoming project from the truly colorful and always inventive Count the Clock Productions, promises an aesthetic meeting of these two very creative, yet seeming dissimilar minds (among others). Renowned for such shorts as Pep, I Love Lucyand The Cheerleader Trials, this also promises to be CTCP’s most ambitious project to date.
Thus, if you have a pretty penny or two jangling around in those ragged cut-offs, be sure to throw them some help at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-ball-horror#/. There, you can also explore the majestic originality of some of their previous work, as well.
Now, with my Good Samaritan cap firmly askew… I wish you SWEET love and pink GRUE, and a wonderful weekend!
If you’re anything like me, sometimes you’re just astounded by the coolness and the creativity of your fellow horror lovers. Case in point: I am just in love with Kellie and Susanne, the brilliant minds behind Chicago based Creepy Co.!
These two macabre wizards of magnificence have created t-shirts, stickers and pins that speak to the horror kid in us all. Dime store vampire teeth, VHS horror labels, and the beauty of cult legend Divine all find their way into this brilliant duo’s work.
I am definitely more Barbara Steele than Judy Garland – but whenever I hear the phrase trunk show, I always think big production numbers and A Star is Born.
Thankfully, amazing horror entrepreneur Pretty Spooky is definitely more on the Italian terror side with an awesome upcoming event featuring her awesome t-skirts (made from genre film and rock t-shirts). Yes, Chicago’s historic punk clothing store, The Alley, and Pretty Spooky have joined forces for an amazing evening of shopping, fun and prizes!
So, if you are near 3228 N. Clark Street on November 30th (2013) be sure to stop in for the most perfect Black Saturday event of all time!
