They are here! And although it may be too late for Christmas shopping (but not really for the last minute shoppers), these can for sure be your first buys on Boxing Day!
I’ll send out another update next week, but make sure you check these out because they are seriously AWESOME!!! And you can get them all on Hot Topic ONLINE. These are online only and maybe hitting HT stores in Canada in the New Year.
Helmetgirls are taking over everyone! This is so exciting for me because there will be tons more Helmetgirls news throughout 2011! You’ve told me how much you love them, and I’m going all out! Thanks for the inspiration!
And happy Helmetgirls shopping!

Talk to you soon,
Hey everyone, I think this is just so cool: d’Errico Studios gives its take on designer toys for Toy Directory! AdaPia and I were interviewed before for BrandYou, a social media marketing consultancy, talking about how much fun we have with Facebook, and Twitter, etc. And now TD Monthly, the toy directory and magazine, interviewed her for their article about Designer Toys. Hopefully through a big network like TD the designer toys can start to get out in a bigger way!
You all know by know we founded d’Errico Studios, where we design, make and sell some of our own merchandise (other times, like for the handbags or the card cases, we work with other manufacturers under license agreements). It has been a whirlwind, but also very exciting. Makes me so proud! ^_^
The Hot Topic T-Shirts news is also still making its way around! They are really so great. I wanted to send a shout out to a few bloggers and friends who are helping to spread the news about the shirst, like Paul at Buy-Tees.net, and Jean at Girly Bubble. I’m probably missing tons more, so thank you to everyone who’s been promoting these ^_^.
My dream of seeing Helmetgirls come to life is starting to come together! I’m very excited to announce that Hot Topic is selling some t-shirts with Helmetgirls designs at select stores. These t-shirts are made locally in California and are printed with full color screen process, and they are even varnished for an ultra cool effect on the image. The garment is top quality, 100% cotton. These are the first 3 models for the shirts, and if they do well, we will release more colorways and more designs. So go out and buy yours, together with Hot Topic’s fame for discovering and launching new brands, we can create the Helmetgirls world!
Two of the three models are available online. The Boa Scarf tee and the Tomoko tee.
Helmetgirls have been a part of me, and my art, since I first began painting. They’ve evolved throughout the years, with their gargantuan headgear changing, and animals joined the head-party too. I have big plans for Helmetgirls, including publishing, so for these shirts to be sold at Hot Topic is a big deal and first important step. We’re launching a Helmetgirls site, as well, which right now remains a mystery, but all will soon be revealed.
