Hello, everyone!! As you are probably aware, we’ve been celebrating Indie Horror Month here on Daily Dead throughout the month of April (you can catch up with our IHM 2021 coverage HERE), including our Marketplace series which launched last Saturday (you can check out our rundown of some killer genre books HERE). Today, we have the second installment of the Indie Horror Month Marketplace on tap for you, which is where we highlight indie artists from the worlds of books, merchandising, artwork and more, and we’re putting the spotlight this weekend squarely on all the amazing purveyors of horror apparel and accessories that are out there constantly giving us fans new ways to showcase our love for the genre.

Check out this list of online apparel and accessories retailers (listed alphabetically) and we hope you’ll consider supporting some of these amazing independent companies and artists with your business as well.

Poltergeists and Paramours:

Poltergeists and Paramours began in 2016 when I found myself frustrated at the lack of horror lingerie on the market. If you could find it, it would only be around Halloween and most likely it was a cheaply made costume item. So I taught myself to sew from watching YouTube videos and within six months, I was already being commissioned by friends to make them their own special horror-inspired lingerie. This company is still growing and evolving and I'm so proud of how far we've come. It's still just me sewing all your spooky goodies and providing customer service but the future of P&P is bright!

RIPT Apparel:

We've been told that our shirts start conversations and we agree. We hope you already love RIPT, but just in case, we want you to know a few things about us. RIPT Apparel was started over 10 years ago by 3 life-long friends. A percentage % of every sale supports an independent artist. Our products are printed and packed right here in the good ol' USA.

Studiohouse Designs:

Studiohouse (SH) was built in 2012 to embody a love of horror and art. Through hard work and dedication, what was once a screen-printed, poster-driven endeavor, has now flourished into something much bigger.

Studiohouse now focuses vastly on not only horror memorabilia, but horror VHS tape cover art. Cody Brown, owner of SH, became fascinated early on with the aesthetic and vibrancy of 70s and 80s B-horror VHS tapes. He designs/curates all of SH's merchandise with these as his muse. His VHS collection continues to progress as rapidly as SH does.

Super Yaki:

A place for people who think movies are neat.

Taking inspiration from 1950s bad girls, vintage aesthetic, and 80’s flair, Micheline launched Vixen to showcase her creative talents, as well as her ability to create high quality fashion to showcase the female form no matter the size.  Micheline is proud to offer "Good Things for Bad Girls" available in sizes xs-4x.

Warlord Clothing (via Etsy):

Handmade horror, punk and metal-themed clothing.

Wicked Clothes:

They take a look at what’s trending and slap a taco, a cat, and #SQUADGOALS on a shirt that’s falling apart before you even wear it. We got sick of trash like that being forced down our throats and decided to make our own.

Between the serial killer documentaries and bad jokes, we released clothing with real people in mind -- clothes that reflect who we are and our actual interests.
