Supercrawl 2016

As the summer draws to a close in beautiful downtown Hamilton, the city prepares itself for the biggest and best festival of the year.  This years festival took place over the weekend of September 9-11.   James St. North is closed to traffic for 3 days of non-stop excitement in a celebration of Art, Music and Fashion called Supercrawl.  Featuring local and international indie music, art installations on the street and in local galleries, vendors and food trucks. Awarded Tourism Event of the Year is 2015, this spectacular festival showcases one of the most vibrant and culturally rich areas of our city, and our new shop was right in the centre of it all at the corner of James and York Blvd.  We couldn’t have been more excited to be part of it. 

 

Our “Get Hammered at Supercrawl” special featured flash art by Cottage 13 tattooers Bryce, Os and Caroline as well as a contribution by local artist Gord Puller.  All designs were “hammers” or hammer related and lucky customers walked away with a piece of Cottage 13 history as well as a permanent reminder of our great city.

In her forth year of involvement in the Supercrawl Fashion Zone, Yolanda Pierces presented her newest fashion show entitled “Love’s Secret Domain”.  A molten mix of metallics and lingerie inspired looks embody this steamy collection.  With opening performance by local performer Sapphyre Poison heating up the runway it was a show not to be missed!

Featuring Blackline Accessories by designer Leann Parker.  These tantalizing pieces of up-cycled rubber and hardware lend a conspicuous BDSM edge to the clothes. Blackline Accessories are available for a limited time at Cottage 13.
