featurebanner_deadironsAMBER LOVE 19-NOV-2013 This weekend I’ll be putting the capes and tights aside to showcase a brand new look. Unless you count my Dia de los Muertos sugar skull makeup as horror (which I personally don’t) this DEAD IRONS modeling will be my first foray into the spooky supernatural departing from superheroes. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know it takes something rather special to get me to even look at a horror comic.
