If you’re anything like me, sometimes you’re just astounded by the coolness and the creativity of your fellow horror lovers. Case in point: I am just in love with Kellie and Susanne, the brilliant minds behind Chicago based Creepy Co.!

These two macabre wizards of magnificence have created t-shirts, stickers and pins that speak to the horror kid in us all. Dime store vampire teeth, VHS horror labels, and the beauty of cult legend Divine all find their way into this brilliant duo’s work.horrorvhsstickersticker_grande

So, be sure to send them some deserved fan-i-tude by checking out their sites: www.creepycompany.com,

The Art of Ruff

Published August 25, 2016 by biggayhorrorfan

Ruff Jason

My friend Christine couldn’t come out to play yesterday, but I didn’t mind. I just spent the night at home, writing under the watchful, protective eyes of little Jason, artist Bryan Ruff’s brilliantly gleeful and imaginatively childlike take on the legendary Friday the 13th villain!

In fact, all of Ruff’s soulful creations prove that the only guardian angels that any true horror lover will ever need are his personality filled imaginings of the younger versions of Michael, Pinhead, Leatherface and so many other terror icons. Ruff Michael

Besides the cute factor – which there is plenty of – what Ruff details, so personally, with these renderings is the innocence that these characters might have had before their more evil instincts took over. It’s a powerful reminder of the humanity that exists in our scares – something that is often overlooked in the flashier aspects of fright culture. It is also what sets Ruff’s work apart from so many other artists who are dealing with the terror genre. In a word, it’s heart.

Pretty Spooky Trunk Show

Published November 29, 2013 by biggayhorrorfan

pretty
I am definitely more Barbara Steele than Judy Garland – but whenever I hear the phrase trunk show, I always think big production numbers and A Star is Born.

Thankfully, amazing horror entrepreneur Pretty Spooky is definitely more on the Italian terror side with an awesome upcoming event featuring her awesome t-skirts (made from genre film and rock t-shirts). Yes, Chicago’s historic punk clothing store, The Alley, and Pretty Spooky have joined forces for an amazing evening of shopping, fun and prizes!

So, if you are near 3228 N. Clark Street on November 30th (2013) be sure to stop in for the most perfect Black Saturday event of all time!

Telling Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark/Curse of Michael Meyers’ illustrious Kim Darby about the wonders of Chris MacGibbon!

To be constantly humbled and honored by folks in this life is an amazing thing. This past winter, designer/radio-host/man-about-town Chris MacGibbon created a (brilliant) logo for Big Gay Horror Fan. It was an amazing surprise. Then — he generously let me use the design for a t-shirt giveaway, this August. Fun, mayhem and (much) gayness ensued!

With a huge and grateful thank you to Chris, here are some quick pics of the cloth bound horror happiness. Be sure to check out Chris’ other designs at https://www.facebook.com/CMacCustomDesigns, as well!

Corinne Halbert and Hate Baby!

Published July 30, 2013 by biggayhorrorfan

Hate_Baby_3_cover_
Aggressively original, pushing the creative envelope to its limit, eye shockingly fun…No, I am not describing the trio of zombie prostitutes who raised me! Those joyous descriptors pertain to the art of Corinne Halbert.

Therefore, if you haven’t heard of this sexy beast (with a stabbingly unique vision) then Big Gay Horror Fan is putting you on notice! The evocative Halbert recently released her third book in her horror influenced Hate Baby series and it is filled to the brim with sexual mayhem, total un-correct correctness and taboo stretching antics.

Be sure to take a peek at all this trailblazer has to offer at http://www.corinnehalbert.com

Meanwhile, Big Gay Horror Fan – whom always maintains that the only good baby is a hate baby – is forever rocking it at http://www.facebook.com/biggayhorrorfan!

Get out your bat stained Patti LaBelle wigs! Big Gay Horror Fan has a new attitude provided by eclectic designer Chris MacGibbon from CMac Custom Designs. Chris created the awesome banner that your bloodshot, but eternally pearly orbs are gazing at, presently. Nice, no?

Hell, now all I need is Colin Farrell to create a brand new BGHF sex tape – and I’ll have everything I truly need in the world! (Just none of that exploding when my body meets sunlight, the morning after shit, Farrell. Okay!!??!!)

Anyhow – to keep up with the brilliant MacGibben and weigh in on his beautific Zombie Lake designs, be sure to check in at http://www.facebook.com/#!/CMacCustomDesigns, pronto!
