This past Sunday, I did a photo shoot inspired by my favorite horror movie character, Freddy Krueger. If you’ve known me for awhile and/or followed my site here, you already know how much I love Robert Engund aka Freddy Krueger and that I have one of the autographed gloves from the movie series, and that I’ve dressed up like him and done shoots inspired by him many times. This Freddy Krueger shoot however was different.
This shoot is a collaboration with my good friend Haley Murin. If you don’t remember, Haley is one of the owners and artists of Street Trash Art along with her talented fiance’ Dustin Tyler that made by amazing Nightmare on Elm Street hoodie that I rocked in San Francisco. We traded Freddy hoodies. Haley and I don’t live close which is really unfortunate but I believe we are definitely psychically linked because we both happened to acquire the exact same pair of Nightmare on Elm Street socks. I thought that it was funny and cool that we have such similar taste that I thought taking photos of us in our Freddy gear would be a cool and fun idea…. and I was right.
I donned a black and burgundy wig and did a black glittery smoky eye look topped with my new black and orange glitter lipstick. I also had my collectible Freddy Krueger bronze mold also from the movie as a prop to show off. The weather is started to finally cool down by me so taking hoodie photos with my matching knee socks outside without sweating to death was really nice.
I really enjoyed doing this shoot and I can’t wait to see Haley’s pictures which I will post side by side soon. She is such a sweet and cool person and I’m very glad I met and have become friends with her.
Hope you enjoy my photos. Let me know below. Who are your favorite horror characters? What are your favorite horror films?
Today I’m posting a feature on the business, “Street Trash Art. Most of you know that both my husband and myself are both artists and I’m a true believer in artists supporting other artists. With that being said, besides supporting them, I also fell instantly in love with Street Trash Art.
Street Trash Art is a business started by two artists, Haley Murin and Dustin Tyler that creates glamour and horror (My favorite combo) inspired items, such as clothing, accessories, things for the home, etc. Their aesthetic is what first drew me towards them. I met Haley through Facebook on the Glamour Ghoul Gang page, and we instantly clicked. The first big thing that brought us together is that not only do we both enjoy the horror genre, we both LOVE Freddy Krueger and even swapped sweatshirts. I am absolutely in love with my new Freddy hoodie. I told her how much I love Freddy and ended up giving her my Freddy hoodie since I was getting one from them.
The style of Street Trash is unique and you always feel like you’re getting something that’s one of a kind. I was just in San Francisco and my new hoodie was one of the first things I packed and was perfect for the cold, foggy, and beautiful city. It’s so soft and comfortable and definitely helped me stay warm. I was glad that I packed it and enjoyed wearing it and taking with me on my trip.
Here’s a really cute and quick mini-bio on Street Trash, directly from them. Besides the pictures that they gave me for their feature below, I also included some product shots to give you a taste of what they create. Definitely check Street Trash Art at their links below!
Here’s the story of Street Trash Art. It’s quick and to the point. I love it:
“Street Trash Art was formed in November on 2017, consisting of artists, Dustin Tyler and Haley Murin. Upon their first time meeting in September of 2017, they had a connection that was the spark they always needed, to fuel the motivation to pursue a world in which they wanted to live…
A world full of – horror movies, bright colors, the season fall and 80’s pop music!”
I couldn’t have said it better.
Again I definitely recommend checking them out and see all the things that they make and sell. I personally want to buy everything so check them out as fast as you can before I snag everything.
