Dean the owner and creator of NeonGlowDvds told us about the Etsy shops creation: “In 2018 I Began to develop the NeonGlowDvd Taking The Evil Dead 2 DVD case, the process began, first installing Neon Lighting into the case which are on its own looked impressive. This then evolved into making alterations to the actual cover artwork which really brought the DVD to life.”
“A Couple of months later I launched my own shop on Etsy NeonGlowDvds. Featuring Upcycled Neon Dvds that cover every movie genre and even some VideoGames, But generally my shops main focus is horror based and i get Great Satisfaction in lighting up some of my favourite horror movies cases.”
Below Dean takes time out from NeonGlowDvds and creating his amazing illuminated DVD cases and answered some questions:
How did you get into making such magnificent horror merchandise?
A Couple of years ago. I was clearing some of my old DVD Collection. This was when the idea struck me of somehow upcycling the cases and this idea eventually evolved into the NeonGlowDvd.
What is your bestselling product?
I would say Rob Zombie’s House of a 1000 Corpses Neon Dvd. That’s very popular.
What inspires your creepy creations?
I think to add my own unique twist to some of the Great horror DVD artwork out there.Is very inspiring.
What is your favourite horror film and why?
The Shining, Definitely one of my all time favourite horror movies. I love the Cinematography and Soundtrack.
What scares you the most?
The Exorcist. I Remember watching it on a Old VHS Tape.It scared the living daylights out of me. I think it still packs a punch to this day.
If you had to make a present for a famous horror movie character who would it be and what would you give them?
I think I would buy Ash from The Evil Dead a new “Boom Stick” in his continuous fight against the deadites
