SHE CAME FROM OUTER SPACE!!!!! This shoot was an absolute joy to create! The space helmet was made by a friend of Hexcelle’s and he graciously let us use it to create this super fun scifi inspired retrofuturistic series!
Inspired by bad 50s/60s science fiction and horror films and retro television shows. We shot with Russel also so we have a whole second chunk of photos from this day!
For Hexcelle’s makeup and hair in this shoot I kept to a varied purple color range! Lots of glitter and touches of metallics and black. I contoured Hexcelle’s face with purple and finished the look with a spray of star shapes to further add to her alien aesthetic.
I wound Hexcelle’s hair around coated wire to make the twin alien-antlers and then festooned them with stars and glitter clips! Super easy and it looks adorable.
Hexcelle is wearing our new “Sweetheart” jsk in wine red!

THANK YOU to Hexcelle for modeling inside a giant plexiglass ball that made it impossible to hear anything and to my brother for also shooting with us! This was one of those shoot days where everything just feels so *right* and fun. 🙂

All the sweetness of candy and none of the cavities! Our new “Candy” dress pulls elements from our discontinued Black Licorice collection into a fun updated style.

Packed with unique details this dress is an adorable option for casual days! Ruffles frame the contrasting yoke, false front button closure, and sweet Peter Pan style collar. Finished with ruffle framed candy-shaped pockets! Delish! 🙂

We’re introducing all the new designs from our “Fashion Clown” mini-collection this week! The first is our “Sweetheart” jumperskirt.
This simple cotton dress is available in all of our shades of fabric- black, wine red (as shown), rose pink, cream, white, and navy! So it’s easy to pick one that works perfectly with your wardrobe and style.
It takes fun elements from our discontinued Black Licorice collection and blends them into this new cute style. This dress has a heart detail on the bodice and two ruffle-framed heart patch style pockets on the skirt. Adorable!

To celebrate Gloomth’s 10th anniversary we’re doing several themed mini-collections throughout the year! Our newest is FASHION CLOWN! We released it Friday, right in time for the movie “It”s release in Canada. 🙂
This collection features little touches from previous discontinued collections revamped into something fresh and adorable! CheshireCat, Kuroihitomi, and Sandra Von Ruin transformed into creepy clown models for this fun shoot.
Amber Thomas Penchoff created the amazing hair-party-hats you see!
There are heaps more photos from this shoot on our flickr!
We’ll be sharing detail photos and info on each of the new designs themselves on the Gloomthzine this week! 🙂 Heaps of gratitude to our amazing team of models and our hair stylist for helping bring my weird ideas to life!!!!

Oof 2017, what the fuck!?
Just because this is the start of our busy season I just wanted to announce we currently have an unexpected production delay. From about Aug 25th to Sept 8th, due to a family emergency beyond our control.
We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time and we will be rush shipping any orders placed during this time at no additional cost to you once we’re back at it! xo
2017 has been a top speed year. I can’t believe we’re nearly through with August. It doesn’t show signs of slowing down either… I know the Gloomthzine has been somewhat quiet as of late, aside from posting new photoshoots and basic day to day business updates at least. It likely will remain a little quiet for a little longer, please bear with me.
Gloomth is undergoing some exciting transformations! I can’t wait to tell you all about them, we’re preparing for our future which is super scary but also really exciting. Evolution always comes through much tribulation.
In the meantime we are working on our 10th anniversary BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES A BOOK! Lots of artwork, behind the scenes bits, submissions and artwork by our models and friends, and a whole story of the label’s ups and downs by our designer Taeden. This book has been a huge labor (of love) but it’s the perfect time to create it and we hope once it’s out you’ll love it too!
We have a 10th Anniversary Party and Book Launch happening Nov. 12th in Toronto! Right now details are super vague but we’ll be posting them soon and if you’re in the area then we would *love* to meet you and celebrate together.
Working on heaps of Halloween themed shoots so we should have plenty of new photos and some tutorials to share very soon!!!!!!!!
