We Murder-Hers dig our fair share of blood, bile, and boobs – but sometimes we need a little splurging to go along with the splatter.
In honor of Valentine’s day – here’s a few of our favorite digs so far this year. While it may be a little late for last-minute online shopping, one of these babies may just help stop your Valentine from channeling Harry Warden.
Cute. Cuddly. Ferocious. That’s right – it’s the Care Were. It’s his time of the month. To love you. To death.
Not for the girl who just doesn’t cut it. Take a stab and pick these up for your darling dearest – just hope she doesn’t stab back.
And last, but not least – did you reeeallly screw up this year? Then no ordinary shiny thing is going to fix it. But maybe one of these super rad custom-made b-movie bags bags by Julia Griffin will. All of her bags are custom-made homages to classic horror and sci-fi films and vintage posters. Check out the Gores Truly interview with Julia; then go check out her site and place your order.
Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself?
During the 90’s I studied at Glasgow School of Art, I had planned to work in Fashion but it just didn’t suit my personality and there was way too much bullshit involved! So I’ve been working for my local Education Department for 11 yrs now, teaching art classes in schools and in art centres, and working with a range of people from kids and teenagers to adults with Alzheimer’s or drug problems.
How’d you get into horror – and specifically, what made you choose b movies/horror flicks as your product focus?
The Horror love started in childhood. In 1980 when our town’s first video store opened, every Sunday afternoon for months my cousin would rent us a different Horror film and we’d go back home, close the curtains, and terrify ourselves! It was the time of Amityville Horror, The Fog, The Boogeyman and The Changeling, and I was totally hooked. As a teenager, I was obsessed with Witchcraft and the Ouija board, Nightmare on Elm Street, and the Hellraiser films. I’m now in my late 30’s and still get a real buzz at the prospect of watching a good horror film, although, sadly, they don’t often deliver!
The whole bag project is just a culmination of the things I love – art, design, fashion, music, film, and subculture. I had originally intended to paint just a couple of bags for my own use as I thought they’d look cool but when I started to research all the Horror and B-Movie posters throughout the decades I just couldn’t believe how many amazing posters there were; I got totally carried away and B-Movie Bags was born!
