Announcement   When the world ends, you want to be prepared. Whether you think we're headed for a zombie plague, hard-scrabble expansion into space, or a dried-out wasteland, I've got you covered. Weapons, clothing, accessories, and home decor for your perfect post-apocalyptic hideout.

I specialize in upcycling and using found materials. Many of the components of my items were purchased in thrift stores, found on the side of the road, or recycled from other unwanted materials. This means my products have an authentic scraped together look like you might expect from something made after the end of the world. It also means that each object is unique.

Many products in the shop have been given backstories to help you connect with the feeling I was going for when I made them. These will sometimes include character suggestions or ideas for where to display or use the product. You are of course welcome to disregard those entirely and make it your own!

I also make source-accurate and source-inspired props and clothing from a variety of fandoms within the genres of science fiction, fantasy, and superheroes. These will appear in the shop from time to time.

Please visit my other shop, PaperTaiga, where you will find vintage books, upcycled book parts, matted illustrations suitable for framing, and other paper goods.

About

That's just wrong.

The shop started off with a single item: the red puppet rug. For the last three years I've walked through the Woodbridge IKEA and seen a display of fuzzy rugs in various colors, and every time I thought to myself, "Those look like they're made out of Muppet fur." Eventually it occurred to me that I could transform one to make it look like the classic head-on bearskin rugs, but with characters from Sesame Street. Elmo took the first hit.

Unfortunately the rugs turned out to be really difficult to work with, and while I may make a few more as time goes by, they're not something I can offer all the time.

The puppet rug did give me the inspiration to look for other characters I could abuse in similar fashion, and eventually I landed on the Bumble from the old Rudolph claymation.

I love these characters, but I love to do terrible things to them more.

My hope for this shop is to continue to create interesting (and morbid) items based on the things that inspire me - nostalgia (mostly for the late 80s and early 90s), the terrifying and beautiful life of Earth's oceans, and creepy medical specimens. Some of these items will be repeatable, and I'll keep them in stock as much as possible. Others are meant to be one of a kind.

    I'm a writer and a proud nerd. I can be a bit macabre, but I'm also a big sentimental softie. The combination results in the creation of some mildly disturbing art, clothing, and decor.

Hi! If you have a twisted sense of humor and a certain irreverence toward beloved childhood characters, we'll get along.
