Polly Peachums is the alter ego of south Florida artist and hairstylist Stefanie Merullo. Her work explores femininity and the blurry line of a mature woman and child on the brink discovering her sexuality. Her illustrations are small and shy depicting her brightly colored girls with big curious eyes and curvaceous figures usually teetering on big platforms. She exhibits monthly with other low brow artists at Howley’s Diner in West Palm Beach and also takes part in local indie craft fairs such as Delray Beach’s annual Stitch Rock and is always working on custom pieces.
Michael D’Abbieri graduated from the Joe Blasco School of Make Up Artistry with skills to construct make-ups transferable for film, print and television as well as special events and special make-up effects. Determined to exceed the limits and ready to take the tides in such a shallow industry, he is enthusiastic about being on location and can create any style of make-up from a clean beauty make-up to high couture runway fashion, or from an easy “painless” black eye to a grungy caveman who crashed his pterodactyl in a racing match.
BoomBoxx specializes in unique, accessible, wearable, and desirable vintage looks and styles from the 80’s, 90’s, and now. We scour mountains of threads to uncover those “to die for pieces”, and each garment is hand selected especially with the BoomBoxx Girl in mind. We thrive on the concept of fashion reincarnation, where once forgotten styles can be resurrected from the garment graveyards, then primed and primped for their grand re-entrance into a fab new life.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
