Dead Daisy makes adorable and spooky plushies and paintings.
She has a kitty named Clover, who wears all sorts of Halloween costumes.
I couldn’t find much info on the artist, Abattisti21, so we’ll have to settle for her Etsy lovelies.
I know, I’ve been going on about the tarot, but this one has an expiration. Sort of.
The black and white images are mostly based on the Rider-Waite deck, and live up to Black’s spooky-cute aesthetic.
The other thing I bought at Bazaar was this lovely Halloween Tarot, by Kipling West.
Based on the Rider-Waite deck, it features suits of Pumpkins, Bats, Ghosts, and Imps.
Every card features an adorable black kitty. Sometimes he’s hard to spot. It was fun to go through the deck and play ‘find the cat.’
I’ve featured artwork from Denise a couple of times on Spooky Moon, in part because her website is called Spooky Moon Art.
Rarely have I seen spooky mix with charming so successfully.
One of the coolest things she does is take your ordinary house, and make it haunted. Someday, when I’m not living in a too-ordinary townhouse…
You can purchase these original watercolors from Denise’s website. I found Halloween Path from her posting on the Halloween Folk Art Society group on Facebook–a group most of my readers will enjoy very much.
After driving into Baltimore for a disappointing Halloween craft show (which shall remain unnamed), I decided the trip shouldn’t be a total bust, and looked up Bazaar, which turned out to be close by.
It’s a small space, but the curation is perfect.
Lots of bones, and for you gross types, plenty of wet specimens.
They also carry fun bits of art, pins, rings, tarot, and penis candles. Because of course they do.
I ended up with some wonderful posters I talked about yesterday, plus a tarot deck I’ll talk about tomorrow.
The shop was instantly comfortable despite the size. I just felt like I belonged. Also of note, usually antiques demand a higher price at brick-and-mortar shops, but I found nothing over what I see online. Impressive.
Bazaar is surrounded by colorful shops. Lots of antiques and way too many sweets. It’s a nice place to stroll around and play dodge-hipster. I know I’ll be back.
On a recent trip to Baltimore, which I will talk about later, I found some delightful posters made by Madame Talbot.
Yes, I bought the Halloween poster, and this one:
I’ve had a thing for fortune telling paraphernalia lately.
Welcome to October, my lovelies. It’s good to see you. For our first course, I present Jacob Crowder.
Not only are his tattoos beautiful and spooky, many of the images are characters in a story you can find on his website.
For Jacob’s most recent work, check out his Intsa.
