5. Innabluebox

R.N. Laing takes inspiration from a variety of sources, including film, music (primarily classical and metal), science fiction, and professional wrestling. Her prints are suitable for framing, or you could gift a sew-on patch or a coffee mug to someone.

8. My Pretty Zombie

My Pretty Zombie began making cosmetics in May 2010, not for the money, but because she loves the art and the excitement of coming up with something totally new and weird. Much of the makeup she creates is vegan, and all of it is cruelty free.

9. Suspirialand

Susana Vilchez draws, paints, tattoos, and makes one of a kind, handcrafted spooky toys for adults or cool kids. How about gifting a tattoo, a poster, or a Terror Tot to friends with exotic tastes?
