!! OMG, how absolutely DEPRAVED! Introducing the John Waters action figures created by sculptor Tyson Tabbert !!
We want the whole set! From May 25 to June 24, La Mama Galleria in New York is exhibiting “Lost Merchandise Of The Dreamlanders,” (named after Waters’ production company) a collection of figures, play sets, homewares, and other collectibles based on John Waters’ films from the 1970s and ’80s.
Designed to look like vintage tchotchkes, the exhibition was conceived by sculptor Tyson Tabbert, who looked into licensing John Waters merch after seeing Female Trouble for the first time in 2013.
“I was initially able to contact someone at Warner Brothers to discuss the possibility of making the figures legit,” he says. “But the possibility of licensing them was, as I interpreted it, slim at best.”
