LATIN HORROR is pleased to announce our collaboration with Gloryalicious HandCrafted Products as we begin to celebrate Día de los Muertos with an exclusive F-L-A-S-H giveaway from their 2021 collection: a culturally relevant “Fridalicious Coronas de Flores!”
The 2021 Collection of Fridalicious Coronas de Flores is a limited-edition culturally-relevant product that celebrates the joy of life, the triumph of overcoming physical challenges, and the ancestral connection to the Divine Feminine by New York-based artisan Glorya F.

About the Artist (@Gloryalicious):
Gloryalicious HandCrafted Products is a reflection of my Chicana-Latina-Indigenous heritage as a Chicana born in the United States – born in the Borderland of Cultural Identity. I learned the power of fashion as a Chicanita growing up Low Riding in the San Francisco Bay Area – our unique iconic aesthetic symbolized cultural pride and 500 years of resilience & resistance.
Joy flows from my hands into my work via my use of colors, patterns, symbols to empower the person with a culturally relevant, foundational product. My wearable textile arts include: Gloryalicious Velvet Swag Slouchy Beanies, luxurious Scarves that include vegan fibers, Swag Tops for Mujeres, Iconic Signature Sustainable Fashion Bag, a brilliant line of Culturally Relevant face masks, and the new 2021 Fridalicious Corona de Flores Collection. Each individual handcrafted custom product sends a powerful message of strength, creativity, power embedded in my DNA through ancestors and spirits.
I am an intersectional Chicana-Latina-Indigenous designer and entrepreneur of wearable textile arts. I am a writer, a poet, an initiated Santeria, a Spiritualista.
As a daughter of Ochun, Ibu Yumu, the knowledge, skills and creativity flow from her through my hands. Ibu Yumu blesses me, as does my ancestral lineage. I am a Chicana born in California, raised in the Bay Area, lifted up by the Chicano Community. I earned a Master’s degree from Bernard Baruch, City University of New York (CUNY) as a National Urban Fellow. I earned a Bachelor of Arts, Radio/Television, from San Jose State University, I am Founding Mother of Lambda Sigma Gamma, San Jose State University, Gamma Chapter.
About Gloryalicious HandCrafted Products:
Gloryalicious HandCrafted Products was born in 2018 from an on-going process of healing physically, mentally and spiritually from multiple spinal injuries. As powerful healing energy began flowing into my life, I picked up a crochet needle and yarn given by my mother after her passing. I delight in crocheting unique patterns that create visual dialogue with color palettes. Sacred numbers and color combinations are added to bless each individual piece. I channel the energies of my ancestors, Orishas, Frida Kahlo & Ochun into Gloryalicious HandCrafted Products – strength, resilience, beauty, power and magic.
March 2020, I was guided by spirits to sew culturally relevant Facemasks to protect on multiple levels: emotional, spiritual, physical, and psychological drawing upon iconic symbols and colors. My collection of vibrant fabrics offer a brilliant array of images from muerto musicians, muerto dogs, muerto cats, Dia de Los Muertos, La Catrina, to Indigenous prints.
