Q&A

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.

Other stuff about Gigi, you might - or might not - find interesting...
 

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 BODY PAINT YOURSELF?

Some people like to play the violin. Some people like to skateboard. 
Out of curiosity, and boredom, I tried my hand at body painting myself and found that I have a knack for it. 
The idea of transforming yourself with paint and makeup into pop art - I'm quite fond with the act. 


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.
Something different.
With my new tools and knowledge, now I’m in control.


DO YOU BODY PAINT OTHERS?

I have in the past, or I've assisted. But for now until further notice, I'll be focusing on just body painting myself. When I start body painting on others again, trust - I'll be posting it all across social.


DO YOU HAVE FORMAL TRAINING?

If you call binge watching YouTube videos training, yes.
But I have no formal training in the makeup arts, sneaker restoration, OR drawing. Honestly, I have trouble drawing a stick man straight. But somehow I can body paint myself into these interesting & colorful characters - and make some pretty dope sneakers. Thanks YouTube.


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. That's the holy grail.

WHAT PAINT DO YOU USE TO PAINT YOUR BODY?

You have a plethora of options from Mehron, Kryolan, WolfFX, and more. But my go to is
Ben Nye MagicCakes.
