Hey peeps, let's talk about fashion.
You want to know about fashion? I'll tell you about fashion. Fashion, my firends, is DANGER. See, I'll prove it:
If Bret and Jemaine say that fashion is danger, then it is.
Okay, I'll stop talking rubbish and get to the blogging. HALLELUJAH AND AMEN!
1. So the Adventure Time collection WENT OFF, baby! Not 'went off' like when you leave your protein shake in your gym bag for three months in between leg day and then you pull it out and it is growing new biological structures and you think to yourself "Duuuuude, that's GONE OFF!"
Not like that.
More like thousands of awesome sharkies buying ALL THE THINGS. It was a beautiful thing. Brought a tear to my eye.
So, ladies, get yourselves into a toilet, and take some pictures!!! (That sounded way less creepy in my head).
Thanks for all your support guys! Onwards to exciting new collections... such as THIS!
2. Does anyone out there like Mr. Shark? Just curious....
3. You would smile too if you were surrounded by girls wearing awesome Red Galaxy Leggings.
And you would grow a beard as well.
4. Okay, so let us talk about the legendary Inside Out Dresses, also affectionately known as the IODs (we abbreviate everything, don't we, all you HLBs out there?)
Originally we decided that with each style we would only make 500 of each print combination. That way, it would stay fresh and interesting.
However, last time we did that, they all sold out in a few minutes. And there was all the sadness. So this little bad boy, is one of only 500 in existence.
So I am thinking that maybe, so we have less sadness in the world, and more hotness, we will only make 1000 of each piece.
I did see a little something kicking around the office that looked a lot like Aurora Skye on one side and Amethyst Purple on the other. Mmmmm....
5. I have three words for you... UNDER RATED.
I guess if I had discontinued the bodycon dresses, we would not see this awesomeness. And that would be sad, wouldn't it, precious?
6. Some say women are complex creatures.
7. HAHAHAHHA - SILLY INTERNET DOGGEH - Y U WEARING LEGGINGS?
What did we do for entertainment before the internet, I really don't know.
8. When you look so good that you leave Johnny Depp looking stunned...
9. 3000 likes on Faceboook - point taken... let's do MOAR of these! Maybe in some super cute skater dresses?
10. Soooooo... anyone like these purple burned velvet leggings?
Happy birthday to us!
Happy birthday to us!
Happy birthday dear Black Milk Clothing the coolest fashion label in the woooooorld....
Happy birthday to us!
Hip hip - hooray!!!
We're four years old. Pretty scary, huh?
There is an interesting story as to why we chose November the 20th as our birthday. I mean, it could have been several dates - the day I bought my first sewing machine, the day I sewed my first pairt of leggings, the day I sold my first pair of leggings, the day I chose the name Black Milk.... but no.
The reason we chose this particular date was that it was the time I did my very first blog post. :)
For those of you who don't know, when I started Black Milk I had a really simple goal - I didn't want to get a real job. Seriously, this entire company is one giant complex attempt of one guy to avoid real work. Bizarre logic really - let's work for sixteen hours a day so that I don't have to do the nine to five!!! Riiiiight....
Against all expectations, it actually worked. And no one was more surprised than me (except perhaps my high school teachers).
So yes, my first concrete goals were to sell THREE pairs of leggings a day. Two to pay the rent, one for food.
Despite my rather uninspired ambitions, the early days were hard. I had to try to get people to see the stuff I was designing, had to get my branding organised, and figure out who I wanted to be as a fashion label. And at the time, this was what my production space looked like.
During that period some truly AMAZING people came out of nowhere (not really out of nowhere) and offered their skills and talents to help me get this little label off the ground. I think if girls such as QM who designed a logo to match the (more lasting...) name
There was also TA who would come around to my house almost every day to try on clothes and take pics, SP who would do a photoshot for me at a moments notice.... and lots of others.
There were the markets - standing out in the hot sun, smiling at everyone who passed by, hoping that they might take a peek at my gear. Most didn't, but a few did. And the few who did.... well, they were all really stylish girls, so I knew I was on to something!
After doing the markets for a while, I had a powerful realisation... that standing around all Saturday not selling much really, really sucked. Especially when there were far more girls emailling me asking for gear! So I packed up my bags and moved to.... teh internet!
First the blog, then the Facebook.
And that's when the craziness started. We were growing, and growing, and growing! We had lots of new people join our team, to the point where we couldn't fit in my garage any more. So I rented a building. It was enormous and it cost more money than I had ever spent in my life. I was petrified.
And we filled it up within a month.
We hit 100k Facebook fans, and had epic collection release days where no one could buy anything because our website sucked so much it would immediately crash. Like... every time. (You old school sharkies know what I'm talking about).
It was at this time the Black Milk girls who would crash our website were give a title that would stick forevermore: sharkies.
Made more cool clothes, moved to a bigger building. Made more cool clothes, moved to ANOTHER building. Started our own printing factory, just to keep up! (Yep, so much for three pairs of leggings a day...)
Then we did a deal with the Star Wars peeps.
Then we did Lord of the Rings gear.
Then this happened...
That's not terrifying or anything.
After we recovered from the insanity of our 500k noms party, we figured it was time to drop in on our American friends again. We went to Vegas, and tried to throw the biggest party in the history of small-time Aussie fashion labels. Did we succeed?
Um, yeah, we totally did.
Oh, and we've outgrown ANOTHER BUILDING so we're moving again next year. This place is going to be huge and insane, kinda like Willy Wonker's factory but for nylon. That's 4 BMHQs in as many years...
Give us 10 years and we'll have a small city. I envision it will look something like this.
(Big shoutout to all the Perth girls who turned up for this, by the way!)
But today, we're celebrating. So print out your party hat, dress up in your fav Black Milk, take a selfie, and celebrate with us.
We're also going to be releasing a spesh piece for our birthday this year...this spesh piece:
Guys and girls will both be able to rock it, by the way. As shown by this male model wearing the BFT and his Hobbit friend wearing the GFT.
It'll be going up on the site on Monday 25 November as a 48-hour presale, so it will only be available until Wednesday 27 November.
Know what that means?
Happy birthday to us!
(Oh hey jL! Or are you going by Finn these days?!)
Yeah that's right. We did a thing, and it involves epic shoes and our bffs at Solestruck. You can grab the first Black Milk Clothing x Solestruck collection here.
We've had a long history with shoes. Awesome shoes, that is. Back in 2009, or maybe even earlier, our bloggers decided that if you were gonna rock some seriously different legwear you had better go all out, and strut your stuff in crazy shoes as well.
We supported this notion wholeheartedly.
One day, the lovely Sara showed up to a photo shoot rocking her Jeffrey Campbell Back Offs.
When the pics surfaced on the website, the emails started flooding in.
"WHERE did you get those SHOES?!"
And of course there was only one place to get rad shoes in those days - and it wasn't in Brisbane, let me tell you that. It was in Portland, Oregon. So we started buying a sneaky pair of shoes here and there from the rad peeps at Solestruck.com.
On August 8, 2011, Captain Cam sent off an email to Solestruck, asking them to give us shoes. The premise was simple: Solestruck loved shoes, we loved shoes, and our 23,000 fans loved shoes. You guys also loved asking where to get the shoes (if I had a dollar...) So could Solestruck, maybe, send us some shoes to shoot in and we'd send love back their way?
On August 11 we recieved an email back. They knew who we were, which was pretty cool, and agreed to send us shoes for our photo shoots. That first email exchange ended with Solestruck saying "some kind of collab in the future would be amazing."
2013 and it's finally happened. And yes, it's amazing.
Fun fact - each shoe is named after a team member and that's us all up there with our shoes. Shak handles all our licensing deals, Charli takes care of events and promotions, I design gear that I think is cool (and hopefully you do, too) and Cam sits on Facebook all day.
The James is the most superior of all shoe styles. It's a total classic and just a littlebit tomboy. They go with EVERYTHING. I actually want a pair of these myself...
The Cam isn't important.
...Oh ok, the Cam is a super cute little loafer. It's flat (tall girls rejoice) and really easy to wear - it goes with everything and will dress up an outfit without going OTT. It's classy, think congac and bathrobes.
Charli is our street-smart, edgy girl. There's a platform and a wedge heel in there so you can still walk tall, but it's a more of a streetwear style and you can rock it whenevs.
The Shak is our showstopper. You walk into a room wearing these and peeps are gonna notice you in the best possible way.
And they look great on the foot. I mean great.
The good news doesn't end there, my friends. Oh no. We're not gonna stop at just one collab collection with our pals at Solestruck. Nuh-uh. We've got a second collection already in the works, due to launch early next year. We'll have a new shoe style, and there's gonna be a brand new prints and fabrics, too! Want a hint? Sorry I can't give you a hint. I can do this though...
I can see the future, and in it....are many fantastic shoes.
Yeah I can't wait for more of this :)
The table was set, with everything from macarons to giant marshmallow lollipops delivered from all corners of the Candy Kingdom. And don’t forget the cake!
It was a special cake, Princess Bubblegum had used all her science knowledge to create it. It even had special powers… She giggled, thinking this would be the best birthday ever.
All the princess needed was her guests!
From outside the room Princess Bubblegum heard a loud “Oh my GLOB!”
“Oh they’re here!” She exclaimed in excitement.
The whole gang had arrived! Finn and Jake shoved past Marceline to reach the candy-covered table first, and Lumpy Space Princess went straight for the marshmallows.
“This is lumping awesome, PB!” Lumpy Space Princess said through a mouthful of marshmallows, “You know I love marshmallows – their squishy lumps make me think of Lumpy Space. Which is kinda lame, but like not as lame everywhere else in Ooo.”
Princess Bubblegum beamed, before turning on Finn and Jake (who were shovelling sour candy into their mouths at an alarming rate).
“Finn!” Cried Princess Bubblegum, “You and Jake are being rude! You haven’t even wished me a happy birthday yet! You just want to eat all the candy.”
“I-I’m sorry, princess!” Said Finn, “I’ve just never seen so much delicious candy before!”
Princess Bubblegum folded her arms and looked at Finn. “Well?” She asks expectantly, “Is there anything you want to say, Finn?”
Finn cleared his throat.
“Princess Bubblegum,” Finn began, “I want to say Happy Birthday to you! You are the smartest, prettiest princess in the land of Ooo and I am honoured to be your hero! …Can I eat some more candy now, or…?”
Finn looked at Princess Bubblegum hopefully.
“Oh Finn!” Princess Bubblegum exclaimed, “You’re too silly, do you know that? But I can’t stay mad at you!”
And Princess Bubblegum leaned over, planting a kiss on Finn’s cheek.
The party was in full swing when Princess Bubblegum climbed onto her chair and called for everyone’s attention.
“Attention everyone! Hello, up here please! Marceline! Stop trying to bury Jake under the popcorn! HEY, JUST LISTEN ALRIGHT?!”
Finally, everyone was quiet and paying attention.
“A week ago, I had a dream.” Princess Bubblegum announced, “In my dream…was a cake. It was like a cupcake, only GINORMOUS! And it had special powers. Whoever cut the cake would be gifted with laser vision for 24 hours. I used my super science skills to make that cake!”
Princess Bubblegum looked around. No one seemed all that excited…
“Don’t you guys get it?!” She exclaimed, “I succeeded! This cake will give laser vision to whoever cuts it first!”
Everyone gasped! “Ooooooooooooooh!” They all said at once.
Princess Bubblegum beamed.
“Jake! Marceline!” Princess Bubblegum ushered Jake the Dog and Marceline the Vampire Queen over to the cake. “Help me blow out the candles first ok?”
“Now,” Princess Bubblegum began excitedly, “It’s time to cut the cake and receive… LASER VISION! Since it’s my birthday, obviously I’m going to cut the cake! Ok, on three…” She picked up the knife.
“Wait a minute,” Marceline interrupted, “that’s not fair! What if the rest of us want laser vision?! I want laser vision!!”
“Well,” Said Princess Bubblegum, frowning, “It’s not your birthday!”
Marceline hissed, “Too bad, gimmie that cake, Bonnibel!”
“Guys, come on!” Finn shouted, “This is so not in the birthday spirit! How about you have a competition, and the winner gets to cut the cake and get laser vision?”
Princess Bubblegum and Marceline looked at each other.
“Well whatever,” said Marceline, "I’m gonna win any contest so that’s fine by me!”
Princess Bubblegum didn't seem convinced, but eventually nodded slowly.
"If it will make you feel better, Finn!" She agreeded. "Let’s have a tug of war, and the winner gets to cut the cake!”
Princess Bubblegum grabbed a marshmallow rope and threw one end to Marceline.
Marceline laughed, and began to pull with all her might!
The tug of war battle went on for ages – a whole 30 seconds passed before Finn and Jake got bored and decided to pass the time with…
A FOOD FIGHT!
Sour candy, macarons and marshmallows were flying everywhere, and still Princess Bubblegum and Marceline battled on!
A stray marshmallow slammed into Marceline’s nose. She howled with surprise, and let go of the rope!
Princess Bubblegum shrieked in triumph, “I WIN, I WIN! Laser vision time, yeah!”
But Marceline was not happy.
“Not faaaiiiirrr!” She wailed. “If I can’t have laser vision…no one can!”
Marceline squished Princess Bubblegum’s face right into the super science birthday cake!
“Oh nnnooooooooo!” Sobbed Princess Bubblegum. “My cake is ruined! I can’t cut this mess! Now I’ll NEVER have laser vision!”
Marceline grabbed the raspberry that was on top of the cake and ate all the red in it. “Delicious!” She said.
“I put the raspberry on top just for you, you know,” Princess Bubblegum admitted sadly.
“Aw,” Marceline smiled, “You’re not so bad, PB!”
“This is the best party ever!” Jake shouted, digging into the destroyed super science birthday cake.
“Uh-huh,” Finn nodded in agreement, “And this cake tastes amazing, PB!”
Bubblegum Princess smiled weakly.
“Yeah I guess,” she said, “I just hope that nothing went wrong when Marceline smashed my cake! It was designed to be cut, not smashed to bits!”
“You know,” Jake said, through a mouthful of mashed up super science birthday cake, “this is the best birthday party I've ever been to.”
Princess Bubblegum smiled. She supposed it was okay if her cake was ruined - as long as her friends were happy!
“Hey Jake,” Finn asked suddenly, “what do you think the princess meant about something going wrong with her science when the cake was smashed?”
Jake shrugged. “I dunno, she’s probably just being paranoid and stuff. Smart people worry too much.”
Somewhere, far away, a robot dinosaur wakes from a long slumber, his eyes itching strangely… He opens his eyes, and discovers he can reduce the rocks in his cave to dust with a single glance! Rising, the robot dinosaur is in awe of his new power.
“Finally,” The robot dinosaur cries, “I have the means to defeat my mortal foe, the giant unicorn!”
Back at Princess Bubblegum's party, Finn was thinking about Jake's words. He had a bad feelings about the super science birthday cake being smashed, but figured Jake was probably right.
“Yeah,” Finn agreed. “It’s probably nothing!”
The End :)
1. AAAAAAARGH!!!!!! It is the eve of our new Adventure Time collection. I feel nervous. I feel excited. I feel... like a kid before Christmas. Which is good because it happens to be our Christmas collection as well.
But yeah, I feel confident. We've worked really hard on this collection, and I think it is going to make lots of girls HAPPY.
In case you don't know the story of how we came to do this deal with Cartoon Network, the wife of a good friend of mine asked if I could make her some Adventure Time leggings... or else she would die. Of course I couldn't let a young woman die just because I wouldn't make her a pair of leggings, so I did the sneaky and made her a pair of Adventure Time leggings. They looked like this:
So I said "Hey, these are not strictly speaking legal, so let's keep this on the down low..."
Nek minit... all over teh interwebz. And girls all over the world are talking to us saying "SO EXCITED TO SEE THAT YOU ARE DOING AN ADVENTURE TIME COLLECTION!!!
So then I'm all like "Erm... we are? Yes, that's right, I guess we are. Ummmm... get me Cartoon Network on the line, we need to do a deal here..."
And that day has finally come. Enjoy. :)
By the way, if you are thinking to yourself "What the heck is an Adventure Time?!" Well, darling, you just sit back in front of your computer and watch this. It will pretty much let you know whether it's worth you watching Adventure Time or not:
I'm just so confused as to which line I like better
a) "NUH-UH MIRANDA, I DO NOT LIKE TONY!"
b) "NO JESSICA, DON'T CHEAT ON TONY WITH ME!"
2. I miss halloween. :(
You look at the scary lady in the catsuit. You feel repelled...and yet.... oddly attracted. Your mind says no, but your heart says YES! You're confused, you're ashamed, you're LOSING YOUR MIND ONE HOT BOSS AT A TIME.
Aaaaaarghhhh!! (Proceed to point three)
3. Black Milk bomber jackets. Now officially A THING. You won't believe how these came about. We actually had some old defective leggings panels lying around that were going to get chucked in the bin, and some bright spark at BMHQ decided to do something better with them - and made this cute little number below. :)
I think you're going to like them. I even made a video about them, where I sing and make a stupid comment about jeans.
4. When you have this much awesome in your bedroom - you need the BLACK HELLCAT to protect it.
I spy two cats.
And one vegetable.
5. How many owls is too many owls?
Probably like... a million.
6. There are a lot of cool things on this picture but let me draw your attention to just two.... those awesome knitted things on their heads!
Made in Australia would you believe. :) Available soooooon (I hope).
On the topic of Made in Australia - every so often someone pops up on the internet and claims that Black Milk is actually made in China, India, Bangladesh... etc.
Guyzzzzzz... seriously, if you want to see where all your sweet-as-syrup BM goodness is created, you can literally walk into BMHQ in Fortitude Valley in Brisbane and see it all getting made right in front of your eyeballs!
We are actually really proud of our manufacturing! In fact, I just came back from a trip to the studio and said hi to all the sewers on night shift! Black Milk was built on a deep love of fashion, and I consider the craft of sewing to be an essential part of that. For this reason, we sew all our own stuff.
That's just how we roll. :)
7. I said I wasn't going to get any more of this fabric....
Ungggggg... kinda regretting that decision.
Because right now I'm thinking about Passionfruit Skater Dresses - you dig?
8. Cure for sadness, right here:
Yeah, now you're smiling, don't go denying it.
9. I was looking at this picture of this amazing girl (you know who) wearing these Black Milk leggings but then I had to stop because my heart was hurting.
I have no words. Except maybe: uuuuuuunnnnnnngggghhhhhhh.
Which isn't actually a word.
10. Sleep well, pretty peeps, for tomorrow.... we shop (responsibly).
AC here, issuing a call to all you awesome geeks, nerds and pop-culture fiends:
Black Milk Clothing is going to be at Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Brisbane RNA Showground THIS WEEKEND. Starting on Friday afternoon, all the way through to Sunday evening! That is JUST. SO. EXCIIITIIIIIING!
For the uninitiated, Supanova is a madhouse weekend full of all the things you love most in the whole wide world – video games, comic books, sci-fi, fantasy, cosplay, and other nerdy shi- stuff. Nerdy stuff. It’s that one weekend where you can just let your geek flag fly. AND WE’RE GETTIN’ IN ON IT.
I’m just a little excited, can you tell?!
And no wonder, sorts of rad stuff happens at conventions. Stuff like this:
This is the first time we’ve ever been to a convention, and the fact that it’s with the totes amazing Supanova peeps is just…ah! The feels!
We’re going to be holding our first ever fashion show (eek!) and the only fashion show at the entire expo! It’s going to feature our kick-butt Adventure Time collection, which isn’t even released until next week. So that’s like the sneakiest of sneak peeks right there. AND jL will be doing his classic Story Time thang, with a special Q&A to finish it off ;)
You’ll also get the chance to chat to our mega hottie customer service girls, snag some of our licensed gear to carry home with you as your very own, touch and feel (but not buy, soz) the Adventure Time collection, take rad pics at our booth, harass hug Captain Cam and jL and eat heaps of candy. For reals, there’s gonna be candy. Lots of candy. We even have a spiffy Black Milk / Supanova scavenger hunt challenge for some extra funsies.
Basically it’s going to be an absolutely killer weekend and you need to be there.
Once you’re inside the wonderful world of Supanova, we’re gonna be pretty easy to spot. But to help you out, here’s a hand dandy map:
And for all you super organised peeps out there, here’s a quick rundown of what we’re going to get up to over the weekend:

See ya there <3
PS have a cute girl.
jL here from Black Milk, that crazy girl who makes all those wonderful leggings we all love. Blog time!
1. Halloween: That time of year where you can do stuff like this and people think you're cool, and not just a total psycho. Yeah, you got them fooled real good.
Black Milk is having a Halloween competition as well... Instagram, prepare yourself.
2. Let's talk about dresses.
I little while ago I decided to discontinue the bodycon dresses. Not for all time, just.... for a little while, until I could figure out another cut I liked, or another fabric, I dunno, I just felt like it was time and I wanted to try something different.
And when I was in the US, a few girls asked if I would do more bodycon dresses. I told them that I was thinking of discontinuing them.
And then ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE. Fire rained form the sky, buildings crumbled, the dead rose from their graves, down became up, black turned to white, cats were marrying dogs and Kanye West and Charlie Sheen opened a school teaching underpriveleged children to read.
So then I got like a million emails (sorry that I didn't reply to all of them... there were a lot), saying that the world would end if I made this decision, and girls would take my poster down from their walls (and we can't have that now, can we Precious?)
Of course, there were the (sadly predictable) comments of "Oh, well here we go with another marketing trick to drive up the demand... yeah, I'm wise to your deceptive money making ways BM."
Yep, some people really think this stuff.
Now, if you think we are that evil as a company, you should never buy our stuff for the rest of your life. Really - if you think we are such a dastardly organisation.... stop buying our stuff. Stick it to the man. And move on.
But seriously, which of these scenarios do you think is more plausible?
1. Handsome Cam and the marketing team sit down and devise a devious scheme to sell more clothes. Someone suggests we pretend that we are going to discontinue bodycon dresses, and then NOT actually discontinue them! Everyone else thinks this is a brilliant idea and it becomes the official strategy.
2. jL wakes up one day and decides to discontinue bodycon dresses, just because.... she feels like changing things up a bit and keeping it fresh
If you know anything about Black Milk, you'll know which of these makes more sense. :)
Anyway, in order to not break too many hearts, I decided that we would let them stick around.
3. Do you watch our podcasts? Well you probably shouldn't, for your own safety. They are just waaaaaay too awesome and there is a good chance that you will be so blown away by our professionalism and slick production skills - to the point where you will no longer be able to do basic everyday activities such as... creating little origami skeletons, or writing love letters to Taylor Swift confessing your true feelings.
4. So, I hear a rumour that some girls have found this little bad boy that we made a little while ago. It's a NINJA SUIT! In fact I personally used this suit to assassinate several warriors who foolishly opposed my rise to the Imperial Throne (upon which I now sit).
And now to decide whether it's worth making. I mean, I would only make it again if I could be confident that the girls who bought it would be prepared - if necessary - to go out on secret missions to kill my enemies.
And provide photographic evidence of the slain bodies.
Wow, that got dark.
5. CATSUITS: When you want to be fully clothed, and yet totally naked, at the same time.
Made her happy.
6. Sneaky, sneaky, tricksy, tricksy. Do I see the the Tree of Gondor?
Thanks Lua P. :)
7. So this is the Priestess.
The clothing, not the girl (although, there is a possibility that she is actually a priestess, but I really can't tell from this photo).
Anyway... this piece is really amazing and the best this about it is all the creative ways that girls are playing around with it and making it look different.
It's like getting six hundred pieces of clothing for the price of one.
Gotta be honest, I actually have no idea what she even did with it here, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate it's genius.
*sit's down and just appreciates the genius*.
8. Do you like ballet? I am totally into ballet. Now.
I love everything about this.
Except the pants.
9. Yeah, this girl.
When she puts her head to the side and smiles it looks cute.
When I put my head to the side and smile... hello awkward crazed zombie.
10. So apparently some girls have been taking the scissors to their maxi dresses and creating all sorts of new awesomeness.
And the answer is YES. We have been working on these, we jsut never finished them. I think this picture may have inspired me. :)
1. I'm back in Australia!!!
And... kind of already missing Vegas. I mean, going through all the photos on Instagram was maybe not a good idea, because now I got the post Vegas blues. Yes it was exhausting, no I didn't sleep, yes it was cray-cray all day-day, but it was an amazing experience!
Let me share with you some of the awesome. By looking at these pictures and imagining that you are in them, you too can experience some of the good times that were Sharkiecon 2013. :)
There were matchy-matchies:
There were crazy new swimsuits on mega hotties:
There was awesome hair:
There was more awesome hair (not sure why this blue haired chick is topless...):
There was crowd surfing:
Captain Cam with three awesome girls?! (Only three? )
Ahhh... that's better:
And cut in half one pieces:
AND MORE MATCHY-MATCHIEEEEEEES!!!
So.... how 'bout it Sharkiecon 2013 girls, are you missing Vegas yet?
2. Can we just take a moment to appreciate.... dem lips.
3. Old schoooool!
4. If you want to get a good feel for how awesome the Zombie Nation print is, check this out. :)
And yes, we will be doing that NOM BMC top!
5. Thanks so much for everyone's patience in waiting for their halloween gear. We were a little behind, and there were some challenges (read: complete screw ups), but by tomorrow, EVERYTHING SHOULD BE OUT! Hooray.
Now let's smash Instagram with selfies.
6. We lift.
And we will soon make aweswome gymwear!
It's a long shot, but I'm hoping for these bad bys to be ready for Christmas... when we shall all need them most. :)
