The National Wax Museum in Dublin, Ireland is moving. I wonder if they're planning on taking this giant with them. If not, I wouldn't mind taking him for my Halloween display. I already have a giant witch. Maybe she and he could be friends?

If you can draw it, they can make it. "The experience begins when you receive the Make-My-Own-Monster Design Kit, that includes colored pencils, paper, and a detailed questionnaire. With this kit you create not only what the monster looks like, but you also create a story about the monster and describe his or her personality. Once you've completed the kit and sent it in, the designers at North American Bear Co. will faithfully reproduce your design as a plush monster, including a descriptive hang-tag that tells the story of your monster as you have described it and identifies you as the creator."

If you remember my "Blood Show" posting from the other day, you're already familiar with the gorgeous fashion spreads that AE magazine runs. As it happens, this tribute to Tim Burton utilized the same stylist and artistic director, Kattaca. I know I'll be keeping an eye out for her next spread.

According to this article, "in 1958 both Post and Kellogg promoted individual cereal boxes as the perfect Halloween treat." I know I'm going to be in the minority here, but that's a movement that I could actually get behind. Obviously candy would be my first choice, but I'd rather get a box of cereal than an apple, pennies or raisins.

Why didn't I have this game growing up? Here's a description of it from the folks at Board game Geek: "The Slime Monster has invaded the town. You've got to stop him! You must get from the High School to the Armory, pick up a land mine and knock the Slime Monster over. But be careful that the Slime monster doesn't knock you over with his slime. Movement is directed with a spinner. Each spin is used twice: once for the player and the same amount for the monster. The players try to manipulate the monster so that he winds up standing over an opponent. He then "slimes" the player and moves. If the slime covering the player causes the player piece to fall over, the player must start again. Yuck!"

Get ready for a new era in photobooth photography. "Polite In Public" can show up at your party, set up an original set (no green screen composits here) and create amazing ultra-saturated images of your guests. Click here to see images from the six-plus Halloween-themed parties they've worked recently.

I can't find any information on this sculpture. The photos make it look like it's sitting in some sculptural boneyard. I'd be happy to take it off their hands if they're looking to get rid of it.
*Update: Thank you to "Hudson" for identifying the artist as Russian-born Mihail Chemiakin.
You're a huge Star Trek fan. You go to the conventions. You know every episode by heart. You wear your uniform while on jury duty. But you can only "live long and prosper" for so long. What about once you die? How will you let the universe know that you're the ultimate Trekkie? Well, regardless of whether you prefer the idea of burial or cremation, this company has got you covered. Coming in 2009, they will be releasing a line of urns and caskets that "feature a bold design reminiscent of the 24th century styling of the United Federation of Planets and Starfleet".
