Shop Finds : Killer Bunny

Another Camden stall for you to stop by and check out Killer Bunny, yes that’s also his website linked. Its an art shop/stall as Im sure you can see (he also has a couple of comics going). Its also the first place I bought a print. I tended to avoid buying prints because I always think I’ve got no where to put them but you know what? When you spot one you really like you will find a place that you can frequently see it and go awww when ever you walk past… Well that might just be me but you get what I mean.

Jeff Michalik, is the name behind these fantastic illustrations, he is based in the Market stall building and I think the stall is open all week, 10am till 6pm. Killer Bunny seems to be an orginal character that features very strongly over that stall, (and looks wicked in both senses of the word) and features in his orginal comics, which at some point I will pick up. There are also some of the classic super hero character drawn in the same style that makes them seem a little darker and slightly twisted compared to their traditional imagery. The one that really caught my eye was the venom piece pictured below, a favoured Spiderman villian of mine.

This one was his smallest sized print, an A5 size which I even manage to fit into a overly decorative/fancy frame, it kinda works though doesn’t it?

This stall is definaly worth a check out. I always have a quick nosey as Im passing. If you cant make it to Camden you can check out the site, it even looks like He’s been to a few MCM in London so it might even be worth trying to find him there.

Topic 12: Your favourite place to hang out.

I’ve just remembered that I started this blogging challenge way back when and never really got to finishing it. So attempt number three now I think, and I haven’t even gotten half way through….

It kinda funny seeing this topic pop up as I was just writing about my favourite place to go was Camden town. Although that is one of my favourite places to go, I can’t go that often. I think that is what makes it special to me though. If I lived there or went up every week it would get dull. The reason I enjoy it is because its a great place to people watch. Everyone one goes to Camden town. Tourists and locals, and watching their delight as they go into Cyberdog for the first time or the fascination with the food stalls just giving them food to try it great. It seems no one can be miserable there. Then you have all alternatives, who you know go pretty regularly as they dodge between the crowds and into shops that you didn’t actually realize were there. Then there is the market stalls, these are probably the better parts to go shopping in. The main high street has pretty much the same thing over and over again but the stalls have a few independent stalls that are really unusual. I’ve seen a guy who sells earrings made of real butterfly wings, he was only there once and forgot to get a business card off him. There are a few artists stalls around that have a mixture of popular figures in their styles as well as original art. All in all its always a good day out.

Shop Finds : Yococo

One of my favorite places to wonder around is Camden, if you haven’t been then please why not? Seriously its a great place to go. Yes there are a lot of shops on the high street that sell the same things for quite inflated prices but if you go past the lock there are some great little
stalls in the market place with wonderfully unique things. Little by little I will try and post a few of my favorites with a couple of buys from each one (if I have bought something from them, of course.)

The first place I would like to bring to your attention is Yococo. They have two stalls, one in the main market place near the stables and one near the food courts. Its a simple stall with purely t-shirts and vests. I’ve personally bought three vest from there at a fairly reasonable price.

These were my first two buys. An Xmen top featuring Wolverine, Gambit and Rogue. You don’t see enough xmen merch out there so I had to get this, double bonus as Gambit and Rogue are on there. The second it R2D2, I’m not a massive starwars fan but the acid wash on this worked so well I couldnt resist. Plus you get a discount if you buy two.

If you didn’t already know, Venom Rocks my socks. I saw this one and pretty much squealed which could be seen as embarrassing as I was on my own at the time. But I got a Venom vest so there.

All their vests are one size fits all which normally I hate, not being a size 0 which I swear most ‘one size fits all’ tops are designed for (I normally fit 14-16s comfortably). These fit really well without pinching in the wrong unflattering places. Each of the tops is marked with the logo at the side there, the one shown is from the R2D2 vest. I was skeptical of buying from there as I though the prints would fade pretty quick and the fabric felt a bit too thin. So I thought they may not last very long. But I was pleasantly surprised when I first washed them that there was no marking or fading or creasing on the prints. Two of them I have now worn and washed frequently and still no change in the print or the fabric quality. The quality is there and pretty good to boot. They are still quite thin so I probably wont be wearing them mid winter on their own but they are great for summer and warm weather! Plus I highly doubt any vest would be suitable for winter on it’s own.
Recently I have also found they have a Website here, after a bit of searching I found that all three of the vests I purchased are not on the site, nor are some of the designs Ive seen at the stalls, so quick warning if you are looking to purchase the ones seen here you go the stalls in Camden. There is a contact form on the site so you could try that too. They also have a facebook page where most of the designs seem to be posted.

Camden on your Todd

I made a trip to Camden yesterday, on my own. It was surprisingly enjoyable. I loved it, stuck my head phones in and just had a right good wonder. No one rushing to get somewhere, didn’t have to worry about if some one else was having a good time or if they wanted to do something. It was just me going through every shop that I wanted. I actually got through every piece of the market which I have never been able to do before, in one trip anyway. Plus I got myself the cutest boots!

Tried to talk myself out if them but they kept popping up at me. I guess that’s a good reason to take someone with you, they can talk you out of buying things you don’t really need… 😀
