The Trulie Awesome Show

trulie awesome

The Trulie Awesome Show, Label Yourself, and Red Thread Creations Present Oh My Cod! A Piece. Our show is made mostly from found and reused objects. Paper and plastic are heavily represented for it’s impact on water and therefor, all life. The candy coated exterior of the show mirrors society’s reluctance to take this matter seriously in our everyday lives. Oh My Cod! A Piece. features sculptural paper costumes, found item fashions, and four months worth of collected garbage.

 The Trulie Awesome Show is set in a world that is half made up, half hard to believe. Trulie’s pop-up Book style dance theatre, featuring paper costumes and props, is an experience that will entice, intrigue, and delight.

Bobbi Jo Gonzalez of Aftershock Art

bobby jo

In 2008, I began working for a charity home haunt called Broadview Bloodbath. Those who worked there did their own makeup and that was the beginning of my passion for face and body art. When that haunt closed, I new I had fallen in love with the haunted house industry and so found my new haunt home at the Scareatorium. After apprenticing and many classes later, I was employed as a professional makeup artist in 2012. I am currently a Chief Makeup artist for the Scareatorium and the owner of my own Face and Body Art company called Aftershock Art. I am also a nurse by day and a mom of 4 very awesome kids. My family and friends are the ones who make my world spin ’round….sometimes counterclockwise…but only if I’m lucky!

madam ofeelya

Madam Ofeelya owner of Madam Ofeelya Redd’s Discord Threads is a mother, wife, software support technician, burlesque sing and fling performer, and designer and seamstress.  Watching her grandmother sew piqued her interest in sewing and throughout her life she has learned techniques from her grandmother, mother, costume shops, tailor shops and CCAD.  With the fashion industry being a major water polluter, Redd’s designs encourage reuse and are eco-friendly.  Eighty percent of her designs come to life from procuring gently-used garments and cutting them apart and merging them with other pieces to become a new work of art.  She is an Otterbein graduate, a former Velvet Heart and Sex Kitten and now a member of the Columbus Burlesque Collective.  Also just days ago, she applied for the next season of Project Runway.

RYAIN by KEYONA GORE

RYAIN 1

ryain 2

Put together boyish, prissy, unpredictable, punk and urban and you’ve got Keyona Gore’s RYAIN, Fashion Elements Clothing. Keyona does not like to categorize her fashion as one particular aesthetic. She likes the edginess of urban punk with a rather boyish side but doesn’t want her fashions to ever be pigeonholed to one style. From ball gowns to hip hop, leaning towards punk is the best she can do in describing her ‘style’. This is what she believes sets her apart from other designers who prefer to follow one particular style. “I guess you can say I keep my viewers guessing on what I’m going to do next.”
