Once upon a time there was a magical mermaid with sparkling elf ears, beautiful art covering her body and red hair made from fire. She swam at the depths of the ocean surrounding Jackalope Land but we were lucky enough to have her here on earth for a short 33 years. She was an authentic bad-ass, wild as they come and didn't give a fuck in all the right ways.
Here it is, the final piece our creatures made for the Gracie Collection!
I made a handmade pleather Biker jacket that's as tough and sparkly as she was. I put it on.. and I'm not going to lie, I instantly felt like I had the strength to kick down a heavy metal door and save a baby from a crocodile pit... I felt fierce, ballsy and very much like Gracie would make me feel ❤️
This handmade biker jacket has been constructed from vegan leather in black and gold, with gold belt detailing. The belt is removable so you can take if out and whip people with it (Gracie would have wanted that). The piece has been beaded by our mythical creatures with beautiful paisley patterns, iridescent leopard spots, and stars- all motifs that are replicas of Gracie's gorgeous tattoos. On the back is a replica of my favorite Gracie tattoo- "NO REGERTS" (Yes, it is meant to be spelt like that). I chose this particular saying because it made me smile-it reminds you not to take life too seriously and do things in a way they are not meant to be done.
On the back is a beaded print of a portrait @deadkittie painted of Gracie in her natural form as a mermaid in the oceans of Jackalope Land. This picture is a perfect representation of a human who became a mythical creatures in every way- and hopefully this jacket can bring you one step closer to becoming your own magical self. Remember, live with no regerts.

30% of profits from the sales of this jacket will go towards the Bulldog rescue program in Vancouver, Canada where Gracie Perkins used to volunteer. Gracie used to spend her spare time adopting and re-homing these misunderstood creatures, and we want to do our part in allowing her work to live on.
