Devil Kitties, Round 2: $44 a pair
Monster Girl Brigade Does Art
This project was a real treat! It always is when we get to help a pal translate their work into wearable art. We met (Ah, remember going to places and meeting new people face-to-face?!) Monster Girl Brigade aka Jessica Ballengee when she was going by the moniker Weasel Does Art. Her vividly imaginative swamp monsters, Satan-worshipping nuns and knife-wielding opossums put a smirk on our sweaty faces when we met her showcasing her prints and paintings at 2019's West Austin Studio Tour. Jess had us at, "Burn Bright Bitch & Burn Them Down." We are utterly smitten with her illustrations and think you will be too.
Monster Girl Brigade + Vinca
Monster Girl Brigade's + Vinca's brand spankin' new project is just the right amount of kitschy---cute to make even the most malicious monster's black heart melt into a puddle of toxic goo. Junk food, ghost kitties and swamp monsters are bonafide staples in the Monster Girl Brigade lexicon. The Monster Girl Brigade + Vinca collection is fit for people with an affinity for alternative styles. Anyone that favors big, bold, creepy-cool vibes should wear these earrings!
How to Make a Monster
Team Vinca chose premium materials in a stunning array of pearl-accented seasick creature green, sourpuss yellow, and frankfurter bronze. Glitter red stands in as a perfect facsimile for the tiny achenes or OVARIES (Who knew strawberries had ovaries?!) of a strawberry. You will also find Baltic birch wood in the mix along with solid colored plastics, frosted plastic, and two layer acrylics. Acrylic paint, silver plated jump rings and surgical steel posts round out the fine details we use in Vinca's standard line. Nothing, but quality findings at an affordable price point.
