#IndieLove: 6 Awesome Stranger Things Themed Gifts

Super excited for the return of Stranger Things to Netflix this month, in celebration I thought I’d whip together a bunch of ace fan art related products that you might like. Naturally, these are all from indie and small businesses, so the best kind of people to shop from in my opinion. I’m really not a fan of fan art that is too obvious or reproduces content from the original source too closely, so I hope you’ll enjoy my more abstract approach to this list.

Photography: Miz wearing Food Scouts Dead Chef Tie-Dye in Barcelona

I’m going to start using my blog more to document projects that I’ve worked on, you may have already seen my first illustration themed post. Today, I’m talking photography and photo editing, which I’m delighted to be getting back involved with since Miz and I launched Food Scouts. I studied Cinema, Photography and Television at Leeds University and have always used photography as a source of research, inspiration and end product in both professional and personal projects.

Last month, we did our first batch of tie-dye limited edition tees and they turned out so nice! These were hand screenprinted and hand tie-dyed by Miz and myself. Here’s just a few some snaps I took and edited of Miz in our local area of Hospitalet de Llobregat.

#IndieLove Day 9 – Silly Old Sea Dog Vintage Inspired Handmade Dresses

Running a little behind on this project, but oh well! There’s bigger things in the world to be worrying about right now. Anyway, time for a double whammy of day 9 & 10 on the same day you lucky people, I hope I can brighten your day even just a little bit with some creative, indie biz loveliness. Today is my 7th Blog Birthday too, WTF?

Anyway, I met the lovely lady behind Silly Old Sea Dog at London Edge last year via the magnificent Perelandra and instantly fell in love with the brand. Everything is made in the UK and they cater to sizes 6-24 including custom designs. They have a gorgeous range of practical, vintage inspired silhouettes in a variety of kitsch, colourful, cute and playful prints. It’s pretty much my ideal dress brand.

#IndieLove Day 6 – Mod Dolly Clothes & Accessories from London

I met Amy from Mod Dolly about 4 years ago, when I modelled for one of her clothing collections on a photoshoot with fellow blogger and now photographer, Emily Tyler. It was the same day I met Sara from Hello The Mushroom too who was helping on the shoot. Anyway, if you don’t know this little brand from London yet, you should! If you’re looking for classic, timeless clothing with a vintage twist, that are handmade & good quality, you’ll be a fan I’m sure.

#IndieLove Day 5 – Baccurelli Acrylic Jewellery and Doll Designed Wares

Baccurelli felt like an especially lovely next brand to feature after I got in touch with them to see if they wanted to get involved, as they mentioned a mutual love for yesterday’s team, Sugar & Vice who helped Baccurelli figure out setting up their biz. Today’s #IndieLove team is made up of graphic designer Meli and her husband, Hugo and they are based in sunny L.A. I stumbled upon them via Instagram not that long ago and instantly fell in love with their geeky, 60s vibe designs, particularly Meli’s sweet doll designs.
