We’re back open for business!!

After an extremely long 9 month hiatus full of roller coaster-like events…we’re back to rock the workroom to create all the of the awesome for our wonderful creeps and ghouls! We have new goodies in store for this season and still plan to keep on with the custom orders, so feel free to drop a message in our mailbox any time with your concept or ideas! Until we meet again….keep it scary!

This gorgeous gown (we lovingly call her Lady Skellington), recently blew up in social media and is making the rounds to border on becoming viral.  It is a one of a kind commission piece, we do not have these in stock as all of our items are hand crafted and made to order.  Nothing we do is mass produced and everything we create is of the highest craftsmanship and quality.  These garments are NOT COSTUMES…they are actual clothing quality pieces and meant for wear.  While we are currently not taking any other commissions for 2015 we will be available to commission this piece, (and others) in January 2016.   Professional images of this item will be available shortly.  I thank everyone who has messaged, called and shown us adoration over this piece.  It has been in the works for 4 months and is a personal favorite of mine.  We here at Darkspectre would like to wish you all a very spooky, scary Halloween, full of tricks and treats and all the awesome that comes with the season. 

Hauntingly Yours,

What a year!!



After a whirlwind 2014 we are getting ourselves geared up to roar into 2015. Some new collaborations are on the horizon as well as new imagery and of course, custom work and cosplays galore! To those of you who messaged us after our October cutoff we’d like to apologize for the inconvenience; everything we do is custom and one of a kind, therefore we book far in advance for fall. Here is a perfect example of the types of collaborations we enjoy. This image, by Laura Dark Photography, is a collaborative effort with Atelier Gothique jewelry. Featured also is one of the wolf ambassadors from Ironwood wolves.
