Toronto Weekend of Zombies and Art
Thanks to everyone who came to the Bazaar of the Bizarre yesterday and said hello. Lots of familiar and new faces. I think it was the best one yet. I certainly watched a lot of my little critters and creations find new homes with folk who love Halloween and art.
I was flying solo at the show so besides one quick run through the building, I didn't get to take in all the cool items for sale.
I did, however, pick up this ridiculously cute little zombie doll made by Johanna Chaytor of Charlotte & Stewart.
After going to the blog, be sure to check out her flickr account for a gallery of all the beautifully detailed dolls she makes. I watched as she meticulously worked on teeny tiny t-shirts for new creations. Very cool.
And not all of her dolls are zombies (I just happened to pick one that was).
Speaking of zombies, the Toronto Zombie Walk took place this weekend (while I was working *sigh*). Check out the fantastic pictures posted through Torontoist.com. Some gorgeously dark and interesting makeup/costume work, plus a group of Where's Waldo as well as Bob and Doug Mackenzie zombie outfits.
As for me, it's time to pack away all my show gear for another season. A special thanks to folks who are Ghoul Friday Collectors. You are mucho awesome-o, and I am both grateful and humbled to know you make special efforts to find me around the city at shows.
As much as I love doing shows, I must admit I am very much looking forward to just focusing on Halloween over the next week.
My Etsy shop is open again. I might be adding a handful of Little Minions over the next few days.
But not today. Today is for recuperating and reorganizing.
