Ladies and gentlemen, bats and acrobats, individuals suffering from an incurable full-blown Beetlejuice obsession, let’s take a moment to discuss reality as we know it. Some claim that life’s a circus. Others believe it to be a dark room. One. Big. Dark. Room. Ergo, we might as well dress for the occasion.
Luckily, Gloomth’s new Haunted Circus line takes the guesswork out of navigating dress codes befitting the creepy carnival known as existence. Step right up to vests, jackets, and bloomers perfectly striped in black and white, offset by hand-cut red heart and gold star appliqués. Let the death-defying daredevil spirit abound in a leg-baring sashed black romper, always ready to stop passersby in their tracks. And don’t be shocked (but feel free to be amazed) if your reflection in the fun house mirror suddenly sprouts fangs. Or your cotton candy begins to taste strangely of absinthe.
