Indie Interview: HellCatCosmo

Robin from HellCatCosmo answered some of my questions! :D
230527_124023791011628_2932718_nHow long have you been making adorable jewely, and what made you start?
Robin: I’ve been making random crafty things since I was tiny. My one was one of those hyper craft people who made porcelain dolls and went to a million craft stores. She took me with her because I was the youngest and really the only one who was really into it all like she was. I started selling things I made and jewelry and stuffs in the first grade- until I got caught, which made my teacher place an order and then tell me it want allowed… and then shopped my stuff around in the teachers lounge. I think I had a “business” Almost every year I was in school. Every time I’d be shut down by “the man” I even made and sold things so I could afford gas to and from beauty school… and supplies. I put it aside to do hair- and am picking it up again because I really really missed it.

il_570xN.333772028What do you use to create your littler masterpieces?
Robin: Lately it’s polymer clay and resin. I don’t have a working kiln these days so I’m limited to what I can play with. I’m always looking for new ways to make things- I want to start sewing again but there is just no room left for it. hahaha

What is your favorite item that you make?
Robin: Monsters. Easily my monsters. The Pumpkin monsters I’ve been playing around with are my favorite at the moment. Anything custom is great too because it gets me out of my head a little and forces me to improve myself.

il_570xN.490282325_npcjWhat is your favorite item from another indie shop?
Robin: Oh wow, I don’t even know. There are so many shops that I love. Monkeys and plushie monsters from “SillyBeans” and “TheJaeBird” on etsy. My face soap that I am honestly obsessed with is Black Magic from OHWTO. MY favorite perfume ATM is Serpentina from “DarlingClandestine” on etsy. Makeup omg omg omg so many shops- SO many! At the moment most of my stalking has been Madd Style Cosmetics, BlackRose Minerals, and I’m shitting myself to try out Detrivore Cosmetics. I know I’m blanking on something here- But that is what springs to mind.

Would you rather be a Crow or a Bat?
Robin: ooOooOoOo So difficult. I’m obsessed with bats- have them tattooed all over my foot…. but I think I’d be a crow. I think my personality is more crowlike. I’m dark, social with my own kind, and fearcely protective. I like all the lore involved with crows too. And I’m a Bird. Robin. Shits through feathers. All of it.

il_570xN.398216646_8xyfIs there anything else you’d like to add?
Robin: I don’t think so. Just a hearty thank you for the time you spent putting this together! It’s been great reading about people who make the things that make me gush with spaztastic joy. And if I ever make an eyeshadow I’m going to force you to take my swatch photos hahaha

Are you a butt, Y/N?
Robin: I am many butts. All smushed together in a ball and deep fried. I am deep fried butt. Dusted in powdered sugar. Coming soon to a state fair near you.

Robin is AWESOME. Some of my favorite earrings were made by her. :D I have a pair of white anatomical heart earrings with black bows. I’ll have to get a picture, they rock! She has lots of goodies in her shop that I lust for. >.> She also has an awesome youtube channel. She’s fantastic! Now go buy her stuff. :D

Swatches: Eccentric Cosmetics Extinction Revival, Progressive Adaptation, Artificial Intelligence & Galactic Era

EDIT: Apparently I can’t read. Progressive Adaption should be Progressive Adaptation. >.>
I have some swatches from Eccentric Cosmetics! This is post 1 of 3. The other two will be coming in the next few days. :) I have Extinction Revival, Progressive Adaptation, Artificial Intelligence and Galactic Era. As always their shadows are lovely! Eccentric is one of those companies where the swatches look like nothing special, but when you have them in your hot little hands they’re just beautiful. I highly recommend you trying them. They do offer pressed shadows now as well.

Official Descriptions:
Artificial Intelligence: A purplish red that shifts to a coppery orange, transforms to a golden green, depending upon the angle, and how close to the light the eyeshadow is. Filled with blue, and green sparkles.
Extinction Revival: A rich warm red with metallic green sheen, filled with gold sparkles.
Galactic Era: A warm brown with scatterings of silver, and gold sparks.
Progressive Adaptation: A chocolate brown base with blue sheen that changes to a subtle purple sheen depending upon the angle, and the lighting.

All products can be purchased from Eccentric Cosmetics here.
You will receive loose product in a standard size baggie, filled 1/4 teaspoon by volume for $6 for 5 baggies or $12 for 10 baggies USD.

These were swatched over Madd Style Cosmetics Optimus Primer, Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue and bare skin.

Artificial Intelligence: Artificial Intelligence is by far my favorite. Here we go with my awesome color descriptions! It’s a metallic red/chocolatey brown with a copper shift that has blue and green sparks. It’s spectacular. It screams steampunk at me. XD
