Sweet Midnight is the brain child, laboratory creation and delightful conception of her royal majesty, Glitter Queen Nay Nay; ruler of all things cute and deadly. Queen Nay's story begins when, as a young and creative child, she ran away from home to fulfill every child's blank threat of joining the circus. There, Queen Nay earned her title by working through the ranks and becoming a headlining act. She bedazzled crowds and won over hearts with amazing acts that combined flamboyance, glitter and big cats. The wanderlust bug bit our Queen and she unhitched her caravan, said goodbye to the spotlight and headed for the unknown. Upon her travels, she picked up bits of the odd and unusual. (if you are lucky enough to see the Sweet Midnight caravan out in the wild, Queen Nay will happily show you these mysterious tidbits and share their remarkable stories.)
Today, our Queen has settled out West in Bisbee Arizona, where the furriest of subjects surround her. With limitless imagination to guide and inspire, she spends her days in Glampira, her '65 Cree Camper (glamper/studio) base of operations. Fantastic creations emerge, finding their way onto Sweet Midnight's website and into our possession.
*If, you ever find yourself in a Bisbee cemetery, on a dark and dreary day...you may happen to spot our Queen, walking her beloved alligator (who she keeps happy with a well stocked supply of Marie Antoinette wigs and jeweled collars.) Fair warning, he does bite.
*Once again, if you ever find yourself in Bisbee and encounter the Jimmy...fair warning, he bites.
Our Queen met our fair Cher, back in the circus. A fall day found the Queen painting her big cats toenails (a lovely shade of glittery pink), when a strong wind blew a tiny top hat over to her feet. Upon retrieving the miniature chapeau, she straightened back up and found herself looking at a lovely woman, dressed spooktacularly in vintage...with a squirrel (equally well dressed) sitting on her shoulder. They immediately became the best of friends. Sharing a love for all things vintage, creepy and cute, Queen Nay often turns to Cher for advice and fashion input. Like our Queen, Cher has retired from the circus. But she maintains her relationship with the squirrels. She has, in fact, become a legend in squirrel lore. The tale of the kind woman who always carries a nibble in her pocket to share, has spread even to the birds. You can often spot her, surrounded by our furred and feathered friends.
