October Craft Sabbath is coming up on Sunday. Once again we will be at the Main Library right downtown from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
You will be pleased or perhaps alarmed to find the vendors in goofy, scary and maybe even sexy costumes. Rumor has it that Marilyn Monroe is joining the army of undead that frequents the event. And we may have an uprising of 1980s aerobics instructors who wear very modest clothing.
Fun, quick costumes will be for sale, especially for those who want to be festive at the office, but don’t want to look like a jackass if the big boss shows up for an on-the-spot performance review. Super hero outfits, kitty cat barrettes and even outfits for your squidleigh will be available. Our friend, Amber, who makes nothing but soap will be offering natural fall-scented carpet deodorizer this month and next.
Todd and I have been secretively working on some screen prints for the ghoulish festival, featuring dated images from the mental health system. If you sport one of these shirts or dresses, the ghost of Freud might perch on your boob, while neurons and dendrites creep up your shoulder. And of course, where would our Halloween spirit be if we didn’t include a picture of electroconvulsive shock therapy? We will donate a portion of the proceeds from the day to NAMI Utah, in hope of making the mental health system a little less spooky for everyone.
