Let's be formal for a hot second.
Gigi is a Creative Director, Social Media & Brand Manager with Content Marketing tendencies - and an advocate for girls & women wearing blue lipstick while John Wicking there way through stereotypes in their life and career.
This IS being formal, right?...
After being in the marketing stratosphere for several years, she’s focusing on something she JUST. KEEPS. GOING. BACK TO....
Cutsomizing & painting on stuff.
And here we are.
Let's dig into your custom
WHY DO YOU CALL YOURSELF "PUCK’N KHAOS"?
Oh, you're in for a liquor filled chocolate treat!
I find it funny when people say it. As if they'll accidentally use an 'F' instead of a 'P' when they say the name. They enunciate very...slowly...Ahahahahaha!
WHY DO YOU PAINT ON YOUR SNEAKERS?
I get bored by a lot of fashion.
I walk into stores and see a lot of gray, black, white, and beige. SOOOOO BORRRRING!
So this is me doing something about it.
Also, I like taking something that already exists and giving it my own flair.
With my new tools and knowledge, now I’m in control.
DOES THE PAINT CHIP OR FALL OFF?
Absolutely not! The prep and finish on the sneakers is pretty intense.
To care for your sneakers - DO NOT throw them in the washer. You can take a very soft brush and clean them occasionally or use a damp wash cloth to clean them.
DO YOU OFFER CLASSES ON HOW TO CUSTOM SNEAKERS?
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Norfolk/Chesapeake, Virginia. But I'll always consider myself a Naughty-by-Norfolk woman.
WHAT PAINT DO YOU USE TO PAINT YOUR SNEAKERS?
Angelus Leather Paints and sometimes Jacquard Paint. That's the holy grail.
DO YOU USE STENCILS?
Everything is hand drawn with a brush.
WHEN I PUT IN MY CUSTOM ORDER, WILL IT BE AN EXACT COPY OF THE ORIGINAL?
Nope! I couldn't pull that off if I tried! There will be something a little different for EVERY. SINGLE. PAIR. I create. So if you happen to bump into someone with a similar pair - do the comparison game. See how many differences you can point out! :D
