Pulling double duty as a decidedly dark boutique and a collective comprised of fashion designers, makeup artists, models, photographers and entertainers, La Santa Luna has previously piqued our interest with events ranging from provocative (The Art of Fetish & Fashion) to slightly sinister (“Hex Your Ex” Singles Mixer). Teased out on social media through haunting videos, gorgeously gruesome photographs and historical tidbits about the Salem Witch Trials, La Santa Luna’s October offering takes shape in Blood Moon: “Rise & Fall of the Witch.”

Making dramatic reference to the reddish hue of the moon during a full lunar eclipse (or possibly the tetrad of eclipses that’s inspired everything from apocalyptic mythology to a book penned by megachurch pastor John Hagee) and perhaps that “death is only the beginning” for a witch, the evening promises tarot readings, crystal mystics, varied vendors, works on display from photographers Gina Sandoval-Garcia, Mary Rodriguez and Savannah Saunders, music by DJ Boi of Doom, a performance by special guest Livi Von Ghoul, appearances by La Santa Luna brand ambassadors (Lita Deadly, Nate the Boy Wonder and Madame Hellcat, to name a few), and runway presentations showcasing featured designers Erica Reyna, John David Ramirez-Garcia, Fabian Alejandro Diaz of Casa de Ojos and Fernando Solis of Diamond Dreams.

$10-$25, Saturday, October 28, 7pm-midnight, Brick, 108 Blue Star, (210) 262-8653, facebook.com/lasantalunatx.
