Uncanny Occasions was founded by Jinx Kelly and Mae Lust. We began working together in 2013 after co-founding a production company specializing in live-theater stage shows blending pop-up art galleries, live painting, variety acts, a marketplace, and cosplay contests. In 2015, we presented cosplay workshops at San Diego Comic Con International and WonderCon. Later that year, we started Uncanny Occasions.
In 2019, we joined the Artsy Association and began to offer art entertainment events. In 2020, we lovingly spilt our production company and event company between us as our interests started to depart from our original intents of working together. Together we produced virtual events, as well as live events in Los Angeles & Denver, for 7 years. We both joyfully continue to produce events with our respective companies and enjoy an ever-evolving friendship. In 2022, Jinx rebranded Uncanny Occasions as a creative experience boutique combining whimsical creative expression and healing somatic practices with the intent of bringing these pop up experiences into virtual spaces to nurture community and social engagement.
