A quick PSA regarding our recent merch releases and our plans for the future! Our Vlad the Impaler pins are nearly sold out, and we don’t plan on having them made again. Erin and I have SO. MANY. IDEAS. for pin designs, so we’re going to start releasing a new pin each month (that’s the plan, anyway). We have the next three planned out already, so with any luck, the next design will be in the shop in a few weeks.
With that in mind, if you were thinking about grabbing one of the Vlad the Impaler pins, get him now while you still can!
Second! Erin and I are having so much fun with our video posts, and hope that you are, too. We’ve never been a “personal” blog before, so it feels like we’re reaching out and interacting a bit with everyone through them. If you have any suggestions or requests for upcoming posts, we would absolutely love them hear them!
As always, thank you all for your eternal support.
We are doing this week’s Etsy Shop of the Week a wee bit differently than usual, since the kind folks at Jungle Tribe actually sent us a couple of things over for us to review! That means I got to make a video, which was lots of fun. You guys have been asking for more video reviews of work by independent designers, so we are thrilled to be able to bring you just that.
By the way, since I know you are going to ask, yes they also have vegan friendly options!
****UPDATE*** – They just sent over a promo code for you guys- 10% off with code “Macabre <3” !
Here are the items I reviewed in this weeks video:
Calibrated Vertebra Bag, $339.00
Metric Raven Bag, $349.00

Costume designer Agnieszka Ospia creates incredibly complex, creepy rococo confections that layer onto the wearer until you aren’t entirely sure how they keep standing. You may be familiar with at least one design already- Chelsea Wolfe’s outrageous Crown of Thorns is an Agnieszka Ospia headpiece.
