Spooktacular Circus – Pickled Circus

Roll up! Roll up! Ladies and gents to a most spooktacular circus. Showcasing a wondrous menagerie of misfits, monsters and marvels created by artist Matthew Roby ( Pickled Circus ). Having the pleasure of seeing Matthew’s work on setup day at ToyconUK. I was gobsmacked for the shear quality of his work, admittedly I didn’t hear about Pickled Circus before, I only found out via ToyconUK website on the listing of the booth vendors and did a little bit of research. I am sure it wasn’t just me who was rambling on and on about Matthew’s work before and after Toycon?

For those who didn’t get a chance to see or buy Pickled Circus marvellous creations, you have the chance now as he’s just put a few of them on his online shop.

A few things on offer.

Just tips his hat and flashes his sign!

I spoke to Matthew briefly and he has an Idea of attempting doing customs on well known platforms, I truly feel that he should just keep on doing what hes doing and maybe just do customs for commissions, because his work is unique and stands out from the crowd. Maybe he should make a few more lower ticket items so its more affordable for everyday collectors and attract new fans, but I guess you get what you pay for.

Fancy a Pickle ? head over to his Online shop HERE

You can stalk Matthew Via Twitter , Facebook  and Instagram

I will leave you with a few more photos of Pickled circus setting up his booth for Toycon UK.
