Speak Up! : Eirik Aswang


First things first, tell us about yourself & what you do!

My names Eirik Aswang, that’s pronounced, “Eric Ahs-wahng”.

I was born in San Francisco in 1942- died 2005, reborn 2007.

I’m a painter, sculptor, and fashion/costume accessory designer.

What makes you Haute Macabre?

I’m guessing cause of the dark feelings emulated from the look of my gear for one and each piece is basically a “few-of-a-kind”, I work on each piece one at a time all by hand and I give each piece of my work special attention.

I never know how to answer why I fall under some sort of label; I am the title that the people give me.

Were you a potential serial killer as a child that instead evolved into a mad genius?

I think so; I did some fucked up stuff as a kid.

If it wasn’t for my love of beauty, the arts, and life, I would probably be another Charlie Manson or Ed Gein.:P


How would you describe your personal style?

Well, nowadays since I’m always in work mode, I’m kind of drab; I’m still on the dark side though, but nothing fancy shmancy. Pinstripe black pants, a decent shirt and what ever headwear, that’s my usual.

What would you wear for a moon landing?

What moon are we referring to?

Leather or Lace?

Leather in the streets and lace in the sheets…we are talking about how I like my girlies right?

Do you ever notice footwear in your dreams?

No, I don’t remember my dreams often; but I do remember faces and lights. I OBE and have sleep paralysis every so often; I remember those vividly.


What style advice to you have to share?

Wearing a song in your hearts is the best accessory; it makes anything you wear look better.
