Remember those scary ass puppets Blade, Pinhead and Leech Woman from the cheesy 90's Puppet Master movies? I just found them dates. Sara Lanzillotta of Devout Dolls handcrafts and paints freaky looking two-headed dolls that would give Tim Burton goosebumps! She's also got a whole menagerie of two-headed animals, including monkeys, kitties and bats. Read More

Report from London

BY Laurie in DIY

I had an action packed whirlwind of a weekend in London, where I attended the first ever London based BUST Craftacular! I arrived Friday and went immediately to Top Shop to scope it out. It was sort of a much bigger and trendier H+M, and not as cheap, but they did have alot of cool stuff. I can't wait for it to come to NYC-hurry up, man! Then I met up with our old pal Sheila B and the two lovely girls who put on the Craftacular, Clarie and Vicky, for some drinks and meat pies at the pub. Read More
