Breast cancer is the UK’s most common form of cancer. Amazing research is happening, meaning more people are surviving breast cancer than ever before. It’s enough to make you want to celebrate.
But hold up - every month there are still nearly 1,000 deaths from breast cancer in the UK. That’s enough to make you want to help.
And so, in recognition of this, Boobzapalooza was created; a month-long celebration of all things breast. Together, scientific illustrator Jennifer Colquhoun, ceramic jeweller Beth Lamont, and textile designer Kathleen Moodie, designed limited edition boob-inspired products; tits-wild pieces which were available exclusively throughout October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), or in person at the Boobzapalooza Pop Out Pop Up at Custom Lane in Leith, Edinburgh.
Following the inaugural Boobzapalooza - during which the original three artists (K.Moods, Jennifer Colquhoun's Illustrated Lab and Beth Lamont Design) raised £810 for Breast Cancer Now and were awarded Creative Edinburgh’s Collaboration Award - the three creatives came together again for an even bigger boob-fest, Boobzapalooza 2.0.
Boobzapalooza 2.0 offered products designed and created by six Scottish artists: Kathleen Moodie (K.Moods), and our residents Jennifer Colquhoun (The Illustrated Lab) and Beth Lamont produced a new range of limited-edition products, as did new-comers Tash De Salis from The Wax Jungle, Jude Gove, and Catherine from Ellen Catherine Jewellery. The products were limited-edition runs of uniquely breast-inspired products; only available during October 2019, and at the 2019 Pop-Out Pop-Up at Coburg House in Leith, Edinburgh. The Pop-Out Pop-Up kicked off with a party Wear It Pink day supported by Pilot and Pickering's Gin.
Boobzapalooza 2.0 reached greater heights, proudly raising over £1160 for Breast Cancer Now. K.Moods and the Boobzapalooza team are extremely proud of the work behind building awareness and raising funds for research for Breast Cancer Awareness.
