The DLB spent part of his afternoon thumbing the threads at the twice-yearly Clothing Show (formerly the Old Clothing Show) down at the Better Living Centre on the CNE grounds in Toronto. (The show returns Sept. 25 – 27.) New designers mixed with vendors of vintage, and lovers of fiendish fashion have a number of choices, including…

Jen from Sick On Sin

Sick On Sin undies

I discovered Sick On Sin five years ago (at The Clothing Show) and love their cutesy monster T-shirts. Jen (pictured above) also sells ladies undies and baby onesies which are almost worth the price of reproduction in and of themselves. Go to http://www.sickonsin.com for all the deets.

Local designers BBJ specialize in pop-culture accessories like rings and broaches. We loved their Bettie Page candles (pictured above). Be sure to party with the ladies this coming Thursday, May 20, at their 10th birthday party, to be held at Buddies In Bad Times (12 Alexander St.). It runs from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Play Dead Cult

NEW YORK ADVENTURES: VAMPIRE FREAKS — THE STORE

Posted in Clothing, News, Photo gallery with tags on November 29, 2009 by darklordbunnykins

The Dark Lord Bunnykins has returned from a restorative, week-long sojourn to New York City, and has returned with much posting goodness. First of all, Mrs. DLB and I visited the storefront for the Vampire Freaks social networking site, located at 189 Avenue A (between 11th and 12th Street). There we met VP CEO & webmaster Jet Berelson and employee Cornelius, explored the East Village’s premiere goth/industrial shopping hub, and chatted about NYC’s dark culture scene.

GRIM DAYS Clothing Launches November 26th

Posted in Clothing, News with tags , on November 18, 2009 by darklordbunnykins

HOLLYWOOD, CA (November 15, 2009) – GRIM DAYS clothing and t-shirts are becoming all the rage as we announce GRIM DAYS official launch world-wide. GRIM DAYS is more than cool clothing; it is a lifestyle with some mysticism that speaks to the misfit in you.

 

Like so many of us, Grimley is just trying to find her way in life and comes across many adventures. Somewhere in her travels she finds a book called Charm School. Not knowing that this book has a double meaning – when you go to charm school you learn how to be graceful, but in this case it’s a spell book. This gets Grimley in all sorts of trouble!! Using her imagination to consciously conjure up a fortuitous future, Grimley attempts to have a positive influence in her life’s path but the Charm School book has other plans.

 

As Grimley conquers life and karma, step by step, she will release more designs to illustrate her escapades as she moves into unexplored territory. Check out her website every day to see what she’s written in her diary.  Be a part of Grimley’s story as her life’s journey unfolds.

Jodie Wilson, the creator of GRIM DAYS, has spent close to 20 years in the music industry, working for power-house bands such as Rob Zombie, Powerman 5000, Audioslave, Jurassic 5, and Monster Magnet. Wilson took a break from the music industry in 2007 and spent a year working with world renowned artist/designer, Paul Frank on his new design company, Tree Stitch Design.  After the year spent with Paul Frank, Wilson was more inspired to continue her work and has now allotted time to work on her labor of love – GRIM DAYS – based on her own dog Grimley, a rambunctious Boston Terrier full of piss and vinegar.

 

Be a part of the latest misfit hero and prepare to be charmed! GRIM DAYS is taking over so welcome friends, fiends, misfits, outcasts, lovers, fighters and everything in between!  We’re here to start the GRIM CULTURE, for those of us who believe in making the best we can out of this crazy life!
