Getting our tits out for breast cancer research
We’re back, baby. This year, Boobzapalooza 2.0 comes stacked with products designed and created by not three, but six Scottish artists: Kathleen Moodie (K.Moods), myself (The Illustrated Lab) and Beth Lamont will be producing a new micro range of products; as will new-comers Tash De Salis from The Wax Jungle, Jude Gove, and Catherine from Ellen Catherine Jewellery.
Our products are limited-edition runs of uniquely breast-inspired products; only available during the month of October. All of the items will be available to view and purchase online right here; with 40% from each sale going to Breast Cancer Now. To help beat breast cancer. Now.
For an even bigger celebration, Boob-fans are welcomed to the Pop-Out Pop-Up to be held this year at Coburg House on Friday 18th October 2019 - and running until Sunday 20th. The Pop-Out Pop-Up kicks off with a party on the Friday (Wear It Pink day) supported by Pilot Brewery and Pickerings Gin. The Boobzapalooza products will be available in the flesh throughout the weekend, and will continue to be for sale online during October.
Kathleen Moodie (K.Moods) concocted Boobzapalooza in 2018; a project designed to help raise funds for life-saving breast cancer research. I threw myself at her to be involved, and together with jeweller Beth Lamont we created a micro-collection of uniquely designed, handmade products by Scottish artists, all inspired by boobs. Each product was designed to revel in the wonder of tits, with 40% of the proceeds from every sale being donated to UK charity Breast Cancer Now. During the inaugural Boobzapalooza we raised £810 for Breast Cancer Now and were awarded Creative Edinburgh’s Collaboration Award. For 2019, we’re doing it again. But bigger, better, and even more voluptuous.
Breast cancer is the UK’s most common form of cancer. Every year in Scotland, around 4,700 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. More people are surviving breast cancer than ever before thanks to research; but every 45 minutes another woman dies from this disease. Breast Cancer Now - the UK’s largest breast cancer research charity - are dedicated to funding research to ensure that by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will survive. Through Boobzapalooza, we are dedicated to helping them get there.
