Designer Katie Wells — aka Giddyup! — lives for Halloween, when she paints the runway with her signature bug-encrusted gowns and cobweb couture. Wells debuted her 2016 costume line on the sidewalk in front of the new Denver Fashion Truck brick-and-mortar boutique at 2343 West 44th Avenue on October 15, and photographer Ken Hamblin III was there to document the very scary show.
