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

“We’re not She Devils! We’re just Plain Devils!” – Bomber, Plain Devil

Despite threats and offers of (lots of) candy from other (perhaps more influential) groups, the only sassy sorority that I truly want to join is The Mighty Followers of Tonjia Atomic! For this Seattle based multi-hyphenate has done it, once again, with her delightfully matter-of-fact look at urban gangs called Plain Devil.

Utilizing a swinging 50s ascetic in a modern setting, Atomic tells the story of Little Gypsy, an old school immigrant girl with a contemporary attitude. Setting off to find her destined romantic interests, Montgomery Clift and Mickey Rourke, Little Gypsy is soon verbally accosted by the sassy Bomber and her friends. Little Gypsy is heartbroken until their mutual love of Rourke, unexpectedly, brings her and Bomber together as companions. Soon, Bomber decides that she, Gypsy and co-conspirators, Einstein and Trashy, should form a gang.

Working evocatively against gender stereotypes, Atomic creates a surprisingly easy going vibe here. Things unfold patiently, with even the anticipated rumble arriving with honest charm. Atomic, also, smartly works societal nuances into the piece. The humorous analysis of why gangs are formed packs a true-to-life punch while a continual examination of sexist labels throughout the running time, also, hits home.

Filled with a groovy score and charming performances (particularly from Atomic as the forceful Bomber and Ada Karamanyan as the sweet Little Gypsy), this sunny John Waters-like homage is definitely Atomic’s best work thus far.

Therefore, when you’re done wielding that broken beer bottle in an alley fight; be sure to keep up with Plain Devil at https://www.facebook.com/PlainDevil.
