I used to be a regular girl into playing music and listening to stories. But not just any stories, I listened to stories that raise the hair on your arms. That was me, until one day, after one too many scary stories I began to transform…now I'm half girl, half monster rock star. I’m a Creep. My cold, empty eye sockets will make you stop dead in your tracks.

I used to be your average guy, a lover of animals, concerned about the environment, you know, just an average vegan dude. Well, an average vegan dude who listened to an above average amount of scary stories… and now I’m a Creep—a horned monster with a thundering hunger for everything terrifying.

I used to be a typical girl. Just a girl with a love of fashion and fascination for all things that flit and fly and buzz. And a passion for scary stories—too many scary stories it turns out.  Now I’m a Creep. I'm more bug-monster than human. I used to do AMAZING makeup tutorials. They're even better now that I have twice the amount of lips.
