Ballad Of...Petra Doe - out now!

Down in London tonight is the launch party for the newest issue of Ballad Of... magazine, which features some of our props (like this headpiece, below) in an editorial piece by Paulina Surys, modelled by the beautiful singer/pianist Nadine Shah.

Farewell, May68

On November 5th at Islington Mill, Manchester's own May68 played their last EVER gig! We were flattered that the band's singer, Judy Wainwright asked us to make her something special to wear for the show.

We made her this studded gold collar and tasseled bolo!

We want to wish all the guys from May68 good luck in whatever adventures they have next.

Dia de los Common

Last week we made some sugar skull lanterns to kit out Common for their Week of the Dead celebrations. Skulls have definitely been a running theme for us over the past couple weeks, and as we launch into out next project we've still got gruesome matters on our minds - shrunken heads!
More on that later.
