Artwork provided by Doll + Rocket: Booth # 3108
Doll + Rocket was founded by a designer from Houston and a French artist; both inspired by a love of comics, science fiction, and the natural strength and beauty of women. The store is about making our comic pop off the pages and come into our world. We create out of this world apparel, accessories, prints, and more that have handmade details and embellishments. We pride ourselves on creating collectable fashion - meaning most of what we do is limited edition so that everything we sell retains its unique value. Founded by collectors, we like to make sure that things are numbered and/or they have special, one-of-a-kind details. Our first collection was released at the end of September and our next release will be in February. For Comicpalooza we would have our comics, t-shirts, sweatshirts, a jacket, pins, patches, stickers, prints, original artwork, some special items for the event, and more. Our founders would also be there to add bespoke details for people as requested.
