I officially started Insidious Clothing in 2006. June 6th, 2006 to be exact. But I have been sewing all of my life. From cross stitching with my mom and making fabric dolls with my big sister as a child, to taking apart my clothes as a teenager to learn how patterns are made. I had prepared my whole life for the first time I would hear Slayer. And then Pantera, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Cannibal Corpse, and anything else that was extreme and powerful and rattled my brain! Everything clicked into place and I knew what I must do. I must design clothing that looks the way this music makes me feel.
And that's what I did for years. Six years. Until I read Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Black Metal Underground, and I had another epiphany. If Varg Vikernes could run his own store, I could damn well be an entrepreneur too! And so on 6/6/06 I started this website to provide fellow metalheads with clothing as indestructible and independent as their lifestyles, and as invaluable as their music collection. Together we will wreak havoc on the dull, the uninspired, and the antiquated!
This is Insidious.
