SOHO Holiday Collective - Rock Paper Photo

Introducing the SOHO Holiday Collective Boutique

SOHO is one of the most recognizable areas in New York City. It is the birthplace of punk. It’s where Royal Flush was birthed. So, it’s understandable how this will be the home of the latest Pop-up Boutique: the SOHO Holiday Collective Pop-Up Boutique. Adorned with images of legendary icons like Jimi Hendrix, Betty Page, and The Beatles; the SOHO Holiday Collective Pop-Up Boutique may be small but each and every crevice is filled with hidden gems. Brimming with luxurious apparel and jewelry, the SOHO Holiday Collective Pop-Up Boutique might be the destination for you if you’re looking for one-of-a-kind gifts.

From a greenhouse filled with the gin’s 11 trademark ingredients to a haunted cocktail shack, the extravaganza sprawled across three rooms in the abandoned hotel. Exclusive concoctions made from local ingredients like apples and ginger liqueur were served up to crowds of...

NYCC 2012: Animation Made Easy (Anime Studio Review)

Wandering through the floor of every New York Comic Con, I’m always in awe of the talented artists and illustrators.
