“Think of yourself as a gift, and put a bow on it.” ~ Gracie Klutz: Designer & CEO of Klutz Mega Korp
Get ready to fall for this Klutz! As owner and entertainer, I am proud to provide handmade, one of a kind Pin Up, Nerd, Geek and Burlesque regalia. Get your Klutz on!
History: I’ve been an unsuccessful entrepreneur for over 10 years. In 2013, that changed. I was thrown into the Pin Up world, and I had no idea what to do with my hair… So I made it up: I sewed myself a head-band-dana, people like it, they love it, and now, I make/sell/wear them all over Ontario and the internet. I’ve finally figured out who, what, where and why people want what they want. It boils down to this – if you make something you like and need, someone else will like it too. And fingers crossed, so will many, many more.
For over 3 years, I have been making one of a kind, PinUps by Gracie. These simple accessories help to maintain Pin up glamour on the run. Sometimes even simple tasks can spiral into a day of all consuming chaos and I believe, when this happens we can still look great. If you don’t believe me, check out the hashtags #PinUpsbyGracie and see just how many people love my bows!
In 2015, I applied my nerd-spertise to create an exclusive line of bath and body products inspired by Ghostbusters, Star Wars & Disney. With the goal of expanding to Dr. Who, Marvel and DC.
Who I Am: I’m a puppy enthusiast who is easily distracted by I SPY books and magic tricks. I’m a natural blonde. I love vanilla lattes and sunny days spent in the dog park with my Puppa-tinkeroo: Jilly. I play the ukulele; her name is Baby Belle. I read Lemony Snicket books, and keep trying to write my own youth mystery fiction. My inspirations include Doris Day, Marilyn Monroe, Steve Martin and my Mother. Who, coincidentally, all have white-ish hair. I love people, playing dress-up and boosting confidence.
