Pretty in Plastic & Miyu Decay at DesignerCon

The Pretty in Plastic booth was an amalgamation of several entities including Julie B, Stephanie Inagaki, Neon Monster, Brian Castleforte and Nathan Hamill.
Pay special attention to this juxtaposition between Julie and Stephanie, or Pretty in Plastic and Miyu Decay, or as I like to call it “Pretty Decay”. I think it’s got legs, don’t you? Jellyfish legs…
The Jelly imagery was from Pretty in Plastic’s Endangered Species installation last May.
If you like Stephanie’s hand-cast silver bat jewelry, support her Kickstarter project, which is happening right now, right here.


D-con stood for desire...and debaucherous this year. We won't go into all the details...but here is a re-cap of the day and pictures from the show.

We were happy to host NEON MONSTER and all the AMAZING customs of the mini Psnail. Everyone did a kick-ass job.

The Weird Watermelon colorway was released and received with awe and affection. It glowed nicely atop our Custom Display for the D-con Psnail light show. These glowing pillars were made out of recycled barrels and with glossy lit caps.


other colors avail. for pre-order.

The OG Psnails also made an appearence. Here is one with Paul Kaiju's slick custom. (hard to see how awesome it is in this pic)

Nathan Hamill had two releases, two raffle give-aways at Spanky Stokes booth...and a signing... As always it was great to see Mr. Spanky Stokes and his amazing Noodle Bowl! He is one SMART guy!

Curiosity resin. Limited edition of 8 in this OG colorway. Stands 5" tall. $80. Designed by Nathan Hamill. Sculpted by Julie B. Molded and cast by Pretty In Plastic. Painted by Nathan Hamill

tyrannoCECILrex goes for $60. The few remaining of both these great pieces will be available on our store page...and currently at Nathan Hamill Store.

 Castleforte had an amazing booth full of all sorts of new goodies...books, paper toys, t-shirts, the works! His custom snails was a delight! Pretty In Plastic debuted his FLOCKED Green Wack machine! News of a release to come...

We presented a sneak peek of Slug Girl with Renee French and Meltdown comics. They will be avail. this Saturday at Meltdown Comics!

Renee came out early for the show and it was an honor to meet this uber talented illustrator. We also had some of her books for sale which are also available through Meltdown.

DJ DayBreak (DayBreakAudio) was in full force serving up delicious treats throughout the day....He and Photographer Ruben Diaz went on a hunt for their new faves below...
