Hallowmas Vendor Profile – Ding Dong Bullshit

Put on your thong, grab your tambourine, and step into my garden of DingDongBullshit! Funny, crude, provocative art and handmade leather goods… each item a weird and wonderful brain baby by the creator and illustrator of The Nihilists Calendar.

Slinging her particular brand of off colour art since 2017, The Queen of the Ding Dongs has something for those with a rebellious spirit and wicked sense of humour. Looking for something truly unique for that person who has everything? Look no further…they don’t have this.

 All leather items are made from genuine leather and tooled, painted, and stitched by hand. Every appearance The Queen makes offers something new on the table. Come see for yourself!


Ding Dong Bullshit will be taking part in our Hallowmas Market on Saturday, October 28th at Ground Control, 1279 Queen Street West. There’s a Ding Dong Bullshit pin in each of the Trick or Treat Swag bags, so make sure to be one of the first 25 people through the door to experience The Queen’s unique art and style for free!
