“Scary Baby Costume” (Not What You’d Think)

“Animated Scary Baby Girl in Harness Prop, three Different Audio Tracks. Mouth Moves. Great Costume Accessory. Eyes Light Up. Spins a hundred and eighty Degrees.”

This is fucking fantastic. I wonder if I can claim it as a business expense to promote Annabelle

Body Bag: an Anatomical Sleeping Bag

As you read this, I’m off in the woods, hopefully not being murdered. Though if I get eviscerated tonight, it just might look like this:

Apparently these were available to purchase from Japan, but the web store sadly shows no such product. Too bad…I could have had some fun with this one, casually cozying up in my own guts…

Sidenote: I went to pack my backpack and found that I had a little stowaway…

Attention Creepy Kids: Only Two Months Till Halloween!

Fall is almost here. I’ve noticed a couple trees already losing their leaves, and when it gets chilly at night it just feels like Fall.

I get so excited and happy at this time of year. It’s time to start fantasizing about homemade bread. And cider. And warm cozy sweaters.

And, the best holiday of the year: Halloween.

Soon AMC and TCM start airing classic horror. Closer to October, you can flip on the tv and find an old horror any night of the week. Yes, I know you can get all-horror channels now, but it’s just not the same.

I’ll wait until probably mid-September to get into full Halloween mode, but just knowing it’s coming makes this little horror nerd very happy indeed.

This is the Bride of Frankenstein candle holder from Bath & Body Works. I picked her up during a shopping trip with my mom WHO IS A VERY BAD INFLUENCE, by the way…
“I don’t need this. I won’t burn a candle in it.”
“You can…use it to hold your pencils!”

…she really is cute though. She will hold my pencils nicely, all year round.

LifeGem: Diamonds From the Dead

“The LifeGem is… a certified, high-quality diamond created from a lock of hair or the cremated ashes of your loved one as a memorial to their unique life.”

LifeGem uses carbon from your loved one’s hair and/or cremains to create diamonds. You read that right: this company will make you a lab-created diamond from the remains of a person or pet. The stones are available in blue, red, yellow, green, or the more classic “colorless”/white.

According to the company, “LifeGem diamonds are considered real diamonds. LifeGem created diamonds are identical in every aspect to natural diamonds. They have the same brilliance, fire, and hardness as any high quality diamond you may find at Tiffany & Co.”

You could put your actual family into a family ring. I have to admit I’m morbidly interested in the idea, especially since you can use hair from living people. “This? It’s my husband. No, not from my husband, it is my husband. Isn’t it beautiful?”

Would you?

Writer’s Talisman

“…Our talisman is updated from a design found in an ancient grimoire of magical symbols. The design consists of Angelic sigils and alchemical symbols around a rendering of a Celtic-stylized, six-pointed star by artist Chris Bennett. These symbols are said to create a powerful magic to help one find the right word at the most opportune moment.”

It can’t hurt, right?

No, You Can’t Borrow My Pen

A writer needs a totem: a lucky charm that ensures the Muse keeps showing up. It’s like the athlete’s lucky socks, and I wouldn’t do without one. Mine? Pens. Getting the right one makes all the difference between free-flowing thought and maddening scratchiness. It’s imperative to never, ever be without a pen.

This pen costs $825.00.

I think I’ll stick with my Space Pen.
