Spring is coming and it's time to DYE!
This year we decided to try something new at MANIC PANIC: we ran a contest for the cover of the 2011 catalog. We posted it on our website and facebook and got loads of replies. It was a very tough decision, but we finally chose the winner (pictured left) with her fantastic MANIC multi-colored long tresses. We received incredible entries from all over the world. How could we not include some them? This year's edition of the MANIC PANIC product catalog is chock full of Dyehards in all their splendor. You can get groovy fashion and hair coloring ideas from the models in the catalog. The catalog is available in CD format just write to firstname.lastname@example.org to request one free of charge.
One of the contestants that immediately caught our eye is the CUT Team (Creative Urban Team) from Serbia. Hairstylist Milica Shishalica and photographer Marijana Gligic work together to create sensational styles using MANIC PANIC Hair Color and Cosmetics. MANIC PANIC is so impressed with these girls (all the way from Serbia!) that we have given them an Artists Sponsorship for 2011 and look forward to seeing more of their work. You can view their page on our site here. Here is one of their models who appears in the 2011 catalog, titled "Purple Rose" (not to be confused with our darling Purple Rose the 86 year old MANIC PANIC dyehard from May 3rd blog LOL).
Tish and Snooky have been busy selecting new cosmetics for Spring and Summer as well as performing regularly. Just last week they played a gig with their punk band the Sic F*cks in New York City and were guest vocalists with the band Blue Coup at a show and live video shoot in upstate New York. Blue Coup just happens to be members of Blue Oyster Cult (Albert Bouchard on drums/vocals, Joe Bouchard on guitar/vocals) and Alice Cooper (Dennis Dunaway on bass/vocals.).They play a heady mixture of Blue Oyster Cult and Alice Cooper. How cool is THAT???? The videos are being edited at this moment. Look forward to seeing clips on manicpanic.com. In the meantime there is a vid on our homepage from the movie "Alone in the Dark" - vintage Tish & Snooky and the Sic F*cks in a major motion picture from the 80's!
Tish and Snooky show their appreciation and enthusiasm other musicians by sponsoring several acts, one notable is Alissa White-Gluz from the metal band The Agonist. Based in Canada, this lovely lady is touring the world and will be doing promotions for Peta and lots of exciting stuff. She appears on our website homepage wearing MANIC PANIC synthetic 18 inch Glam Strips in Virgin™ in the awesome photo below. Did I mention that she is also wearing MANIC PANIC Cosmetics Spider Liner (her fave), Lust Dusts, and After Midnight Blue hair color?
ALSO: I have to say that every time I pick up a magazine I see another superstar sporting MANIC PANIC Hair Color! Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Jared Leto - I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT! We are making the world a more colorful place! Our facebook is bombarded with GORGEOUS photos of Dyehards (see our tagged photos) and every day we get more and more via email. Spring is coming - soon we will see blooms - school will be OUT - IT'S TIME TO DYE!
