We are very happy to have our makeup for sale on Ergi by Piratessan, a webshop based in Sweden and run by clothing designer (and Piratessan!) Eva Dejmo. If you enjoy Gothic Lolita, pirate style and/or historically inspired couture, then you’ll love her eclectic collection of clothes, accessories, jewelry and makeup!
Portland film makers Tara Johnson-Medinger and Brandon Roberts are currently working on an amazing film project–a story about growing up, falling in love and finding yourself–that is positively drenched in gorgeous, gothy goodness!!
To our absolute delight, PBLC makeup will be featured in the movie! Take a look at this makeover scene that they have already shot:
Making a film is expensive! As part of the project’s kickstarter campaign, PBLC has collaborated with the filmmakers to create goth makeover kits for anyone who donates $250 or more. They made these adorable boxes:
Each box comes with three PBLC items: 1) Black Lipstick, of course!; 2) Vegan Corpse Paint; and 3) Dark Dark Dark, our new black eyeshadow!! Dark Dark Dark was made specially for this box set and is not yet available for regular sale.
For more information on ‘My Summer as a Goth,’ visit their kickstarter page HERE
…or find them on facebook for updates and other movie-related details!!
For the last few months, we have had the pleasure of selling our products at Static, an excellent boutique on East Burnside in Portland. They opened in 2011, so are relatively new–if you haven’t gone there yet, we highly recommend it!
They carry great, gothy classics like Lip Service clothing and jewelry from Alchemy Gothic, lots of delicious band t-shirts and hoodies, vintage clothing and hand crafted conceits from local artisans. Many of these items are sold below recommended list price, like the marvelous parasol from London I bought myself (pictured below…)
The atmosphere makes browsing a pleasure. The music is always wonderful and the owner, Simone, is friendly, funny and very knowledgeable. Here she is, pictured below with counter top and paper skeletons:
Static is located at 2400 East Burnside, Portland (Oregon!) and can be found online at facebook [http://www.facebook.com/staticpdx]. We are currently selling all of our regular colors of lipstick and glitter there, along with Phantom Powder and Vegan Corpsepaint. Stay tuned for more on that last item!! Best, PBLC
