The Superfantastics

“Matt was opposed to having one-inch buttons made since every band in Halifax had one-inch buttons,” says Superfantastic Stephanie d’Entremont of the duo’s winning slap bracelets. “I was browsing the internet for other ideas, one website I found offered slap bracelets with your company’s name on them.” She discovered it would cost over a grand to get them from the American outfit, and set out to find a solution. “I searched high and low and eventually found a dollar store that carried Dora the Explorer ones. I had pink and brown vinyl left over from when my ex-boyfriend made a pink drum set as a Christmas gift for me and so the pink Superfantastics slap bracelets were born!” It’s fitting that your favourite band merch is hand-crafted, with love. “And knowing that the indie kids are enjoying our slap bracelets,” she adds, “makes it worth the 30 minutes it takes to construct each one.”
