Etsy shop KMKDesigns is the collaboration between a mother, daughter team who work out of their Studio in Stillwater, MN. Their talents came together a few years ago when both found costuming as an outlet for their creativity. Sheridyn has sewn her whole life starting with doll clothes when she was younger, and worked up to making her own prom dresses growing up. Her daughter Kaitlyn, has a degree in fashion and as a child would draw her own clothes for her mother to create for her. The talented duo specializes in designing alternative wedding dresses and alternative clothing inspired by Steampunk, Neo-victorian, Lolita and Gothic styles.
“Both of us discovered that through making clothes we could potentially create a tool for men and women of all shapes, sizes and types to feel more confident and beautiful. The true nature of fashion is to make the person wearing it feel stunning. To feel like they are grabbing the attention of everyone in the room positively.”
One of their latest designs is this red, sateen wedding dress inspired by the books and movie The Hunger Games.
Even in death love lives on for couple Janette and Brian who had a frightfully, fun Halloween wedding. Half of the dynamic duo that runs the fangirl blog Le Geek Janette says, “I can say with all certainty that my wedding day was the best day of my life…I’ve never been a traditional gal so logically I wasn’t looking to plan a traditional wedding.” With over a year to plan, once the date was set the couple sent out their zombie themed Save the Dates and home-made invites to prepare guests well in advance for what was in store for them.
Janette and Brian decided on keeping the ceremony relatively traditional opting for a chapel located at a cemetery to still tie into their theme. Janette wore a white wedding dress and veil with a cobwebbed red rose bouquet the groom a grey suit and matching Halloween themed boutonniere. Being the geeks that they are, after the two were pronounced husband and wife the couple made their exit down the aisle to the theme from Star Wars. Always a great way to end a wedding ceremony.
After the ceremony guests were given time to get ready for the couple’s costumed reception! “All in all, I’m very lucky to have married such an awesome guy that would even be willing to go with a crazy idea like a Halloween wedding. We make a great geeky team.”
This super easy and quick DIY will add a little bling and Goth style to your Halloween or Gothic themed wedding. These mask table numbers were made by my sister for my Halloween wedding as an alternative to adding the table numbers to the centerpieces ( I also had her make a Star Wars themed one for my co-workers table).
There are only 2 steps to this tutorial: paint your mask, bling it out and your done! Change up the look by painting the numbers with a different paint color instead of using crystals. You can also cover the entire mask with glue and add glitter instead of paint.

Housewares are one of the most requested gifts on a registry and If your going to be attending an alternative wedding, or looking for a gift that will stand out from the crowd, Alt.Home has you covered. The first and only alternative homeware brand, Alt. Home, is the provider of unconventional products for an alternative home, helping you express your identity through more than just your clothing.
