Christine McConnell first popped up on my radar when I saw a picture on Instagram of a house decorated like the face of a monster.
Following her Instagram was a huge source of inspiration, her whimsical 1950’s charm combined with the grotesque baked goods that she made were a delightful iconoclast. Christine herself is a stunningly beautiful woman who makes desserts that look like they should be eaten quickly, before they eat you.
She now has over 260,000 followers on her Instagram and has been hired to make treats for movies like Alien: Covenant, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and the TV show Stranger Things. She will now make her transition over into her own TV series called “The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell”, which looks like a cross over between Martha Stewart, Sesame Street and Tales from the Crypt.
So it’s right up my alley.
Watch the trailer below for the Netflix series, premiering on October 19th.
