We have been busy showing you work in progress images from Conjuring Mischief, but we thought we would give you a look at 4 finished pieces we have taunted you with.

Get ready to see Skelves that range from the classic style of Travis Lampe, to the beautifully painted Candice Tripp, the majestic Scribe sculpted Skelve, and the wool fabricated finesse of Lana Crooks.

Scribe put his sculpting skills to the test with a 4-legged Skelve that evokes a Chinese dragon parade.

lana crooks 1Lana Crooks also used a 4-legged skelve and let the skeletal system be the star with a fabric inspired structure. That tail!!!!

We have much more to show you, so keep your eyes locked on all our social media outlets.

Guess what? Mini Keshi “Monster Skelve” toy exclusive will drop @strangerfactory May 2nd for the CONJURING MISCHIEF group Skelve exhibition.This design based after the extremely talented designer/sculptor @thelastzectron ‘s concept for the event. Along with the quite outstanding keshi toy producing studio @trutek (Disarticulators). So excited for this drop!!! #skelve #disarticulators #zectron

So it looks like Zectron and Trutek will have an edition “Monster Skelve” at Conjuring Mischief, and we know it will make almost the entire Skelve loving population go “squeeee” because it is very bat-like!

Since it is Friday, and we want everyone to have a good weekend, here is a little teaser.
abatt2-2Only one week to go until Conjuring Mischief!

 

CandiTime to shine the spotlight on another Conjuring Mischief artist, Candice Tripp.

Based out of the United Kingdom, Newcastle upon Tyne to be exact, Candice has aggressively and passionately climbed the ladder of the art scene. Known for her macabre and dark sense of humor, that is fully displayed in her work, Candice’s paintings exude beautiful dark imagination in the foreground and magnificent, rich narrative beyond. Using negative space with a white background, along with animals, masked children, and forests, Candice’s oil work is astounding and magical which is a perfect theme for our mischievous little Skelve. If that wasn’t enough, Candice has recently started work in 3D, most notably with her Sally dolls which perfectly embody the horror and dark levity we have grown to love in her work.

We are still jumping off of the walls with the announcement of Conjuring Mischief coming to Stranger Factory this May. This custom Skelve show has top notch talent doing their masterful work on our iconic mascot!

Time to spotlight one of the amazing artists gracing the Conjuring Mischief custom Skelve show at Stranger Factory this May, Cassia Harries.

Cassia is the owner and creator behind Monster Mind Sculpts and no stranger to the design world. Inspired by all the great sci-fi and pop culture films and artists that have become canon for most of our creativity, Cassia interprets this into her own creations. Earlier this year, she has had an incredible success with her Little Monsters Baby Cthulhu kickstarter that generated 6x the needed funding for the project! More recently, her sculpts have generated wide praise in numerous gallery shows, and now we get to see what she has in store for Conjuring Mischief.

photo 1The clues have been out there for quite some time, but we can finally start to show off what’s in store for 2014…the Tomenosuke + CP Chibi Series!

Chibi is a popular Japanese character style, drawing fans of the small and cute. Imagine smaller and even cuter little versions of the toys we all know and love, and know that the Tomenosuke + CP series is taking this idea full throttle. Here is the test sculpt of Brandt Peters‘ Skelve for the series, sculpted by the amazing Yohei Kaneko, in all his squat, bow tied glory.

We don’t have the exact production details yet, but we do know, that they are small / two-part figures and part of a line that will include Circus Posterus favourites, and guest artists. Also, for even more fun – their heads will all be swappable. The first series in the line- up will feature Kathie Olivas, Chris Ryniak, Amanda Louise Spayd, and Brandt Peters.

Check out more of the design below.

hallowskelve1The original Nonesuch Skelve was an instant hit, so of course we would bring back another version, and this time it is the Halloween variant!

Megan of Nonesuch Garden has been busy for weeks with her needle and thread getting ready for Bewitching III. All the hard work comes to fruition when these plush skelves release this Friday!

A low edition of only 12, these Skelves are in their perfect orange Halloween costume with their signature top hats. Have them sitting down or standing up, but act fast because they will walk out of the door fast. We will release these at various times all throughout the day on Friday, October 25 in the Circus Posterus store here. Keep checking back because only a few will go up at a time. These are limited to one per household and $150 each.
