I tear up comics and immortalize them. So I basically make fanboys cry....but it's for a good cause! I swear!

This little shop has now expanded to include corsets, fibre arts, costumes and nail design!

I mainly make corsets and bags out of comics or other various paper products. Fully customizable work, you CAN indeed have that superhero they don't carry commercially.

The name 'Darkly Designed' mainly came about because I like a lot of alternative stuff. There's nothing really 'dark' about it. It's more like one of those big burly biker guys that turns out to be a big teddy bear once you get to know them. ;)

    Originally from Hamilton, ON, but in Toronto since the late 90's. I work 9-5, but create new and innovative designs that I'm hoping you'll love as much as I do creating them!
