Holiday Reminder!

the craft bonnie makeup outfit photoshoot gloomth altmodel

We’re winding down the year here at the ‘Cult and packing up the last orders of 2017! We’ve got lots coming for 2018 but in the meantime we’re going to be taking a much deserved holiday.

Gloomth will be closed from Dec 22nd until January 3rd. We may respond to emails during this time, but it will be less quickly than our usual speed. Nothing will be made or shipped during this time whatsoever, any exchanges etc will be handled in the new year.

Things will be slowing down from now til the 22nd so please be patient with us, we need a break just like you do this time of year.

Thank you for your support this year and we hope to hit the ground running in 2018 with all sorts of exciting things! 🙂

GLOOMTH BOOK! “10 Years of Monsters & Misfits”

gloomth book 10 years monsters misfits taeden hall toronto

WE WROTE A BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This project has been underway for basically all of 2017. It’s Gloomth’s 10th anniversary this year and when I started making stuff and selling it online originally I had no idea it’d blossom into this. It’s taken over my life in all the best ways and I am so thrilled to get to continue on making weird art and sharing it with other weirdos around the world. 🙂

So we wrote a book. It’s sort of a scrap book. I wrote a backbone of text for it with stories about how we started, funny mishaps, stuff that went wrong, etc- basically all the ups and downs of running a business on a shoestring as a 20-something. Behind the scenes memories from photoshoots and press experiences, everything.

And it’s got this cool collage style layout full of unique photos, artwork, textures and more! We even have art by our models and friends in there.

It’s a great way to celebrate our anniversary and to acknowledge everything that’s gone into making this happen. Thank you for supporting us, for even just sharing our photos or reading our blog. We hope you love this book and we can’t wait to make more art!!!!!

And thank you to the House of Pomegranates for helping me turn my weird idea for a collage book into a reality. I’ve got more of these in the works, so it was a great first step towards making those real!!!

I’ll post some photos of the inside of the book after we launch it at our PARTY THIS WEEKEND (you’re totally invited, fyi)!

Available worldwide via Amazon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New “Haunted Forest” Photoshoot!

gothic skeleton makeup gloomth editorial toronto

For our new “Haunted Forest” photoshoot I transformed Hexcelle into glittering skeleton royalty against a backdrop of vibrant autumnal leaves. This was a very collaborative shoot as I was feeling quite under the weather. Hexcelle brought a bunch of her own wardrobe items and we built a look utilizing those and Gloomth’s “Carmilla” dress (yes, a variation is going to be back soon for that dress!).

We layered a purple striped waist cincher as well as several types of bustles to add some Gothic Victorian flair to this outfit. The gorgeous skull collar is for sale and was made by Hexcelle herself!!!!

gothic skeleton makeup victorian gloomthFor the hair in this shoot I wrapped two braids of Hexcelle’s hair around armature wire and wound them into a big loop on top of her head. I then spread Halloween spiderwebs over the loop and decorated it with a beaded spider and some hair clips. For her makeup I did a play on the skeleton makeup styles that have been going around like crazy this fall! Utilizing a range of purples and some black, as well as false lashes on top and bottom, and finished with violet glitter accents!

Questionable Pillows

Recently I was searching for a cushion for my kitties, I just wanted something cute/weird that’d work as a cat bed in my apartment. Since Atticus will not share his berry-shaped cat fortress with Goblin. While searching I found *many* delightfully weird pillows and I thought I’d share them. Especially helpful with the holidays descending upon us. Who doesn’t need a nice decorative pillow for their home, office, or to fill their entire vehicle with?!!!

COCKROACH– Yes, you can have a big cuddly awful infestation for your couch. I don’t know why you would want this but it is available.

PENIS- This comes in a variety of sizes (har har har) but oddly only pale pink. I confess I thought long and hard (har har har) about whether I knew anyone I could buy one of these for as they’re just so funny to me.

HAM– It’s ham.

MEAT VARIETY– From prawns to what I think might be a potato, to chicken’s feet and a horrifying pig’s hoof?!!!! Why. What home decor style calls for a revolting chicken’s foot pillow? Voodoo witch-doctor’s waiting room? Butcher’s shops don’t usually have couches! The red thing down at the center is supposedly a sweet potato, it looks like the underbelly of an unnamed insect that has nipples.

CORN– I think these are pretty corny.

Brick-Pillow-Cushion-Soft-Stuffed-Plush-Doll-Toy-Kids-Creative-Personalized-Gift

BRICK– Again, who is coming up with these ideas? Why would you want a brick shaped pillow?! Bonus shot of someone beating a baby up with a brick shaped pillow. Take THAT baby!

EGG– I like how the poor girl modeling these has enlisted her cat. “Come on Spot, look at the camera and pose with the egg pillow!”. The cat’s face has been cropped out because no one wants to see a confused and upset cat modeling a fake egg cushion.

Sleeping-plush-soft-toys-Gourd-Ginger-doll-pillow-cushions-girlfriend-gift-70cm

GINGER– I mean, without that word in the title of the description I would never have guessed this pillow is supposed to be ginger. Some sort of tumor maybe? Bowel obstruction? Poorly made teddy bear?

CONDOM- Safe sex is really important, yes, but maybe a cheery yellow pillow isn’t the best way to convey this message? It’s so weird looking you’ll forever be explaining, “Oh thats not a fire hydrant, grandma, it’s a condom pillow!” to everyone who sees it. Goes especially well with the pink penis pillows! I’d like to buy these for the local sexual health clinic but they’d probably prefer a monetary donation….

I found all of these on ebay so if you’re in the market for a big clump of ham emblazoned on a pillow in your bedroom you can just find it over there.
