Monster in the bathtub

It's like my mom always used to say, "Monsters love bubble-bath"!

Skull motorcycle helmet

This motorcycle helmet is currently out of stock, which is ok, because I currently do not own (nor do I know how to ride) a motorcycle, which means I would end up wearing it as I walk to the train each morning, and people might make fun of me, and possibly beat me up, which could hurt.

Tooth tattoos

This dental lab specializes in "dental tattoos," which are actually custom hand-painted crowns. Each piece costs between $75 and $500. I'd love to see them do some spookier work. Perhaps a skull or bat. Or for that matter, they could probably do a really good Freddy Kreuger or Jason Voorhees.

Haunted Lesbian Sorority

This is pretty funny. First, picture a pair of guys fantasizing about the goings-on inside a sorority house. (The girls all shower together, have topless pillow fights, etc.) Now, imagine that those crazy fantasies are not only true, but the guys doing the dreaming are actually in the house watching it all go down... and they're invisible... and they're ghosts.

Hairless cat

I've gotta get me one of them hairless cats! They look great posed next to a grouping of skulls.

There's a witch in Central Park

Designed by English-born architect Jacob Wrey Mould in the mid-1800's, this carving can be found on the Bethesda Terrace (overlooking Bethesda Fountain) in New York's Central Park. "Mould chose representative wildlife and seasonal design motifs. There are also carvings symbolic of day: a rising sun, a crowing cock. Night is represented by a lamp and book, a bat and owl, and a witch flying over a Jack-o'-lantern."

Draping your house in horror

This image accompanied a 10 year old article from The Onion. I wish I could source the original photo. Was this a Halloween display the homeowners created, or did they paint that image on the tent before fumigating?

I painted my house (UPDATE)

In June I posted a different image of this skull-emblazon house. Well, I just learned who the artist is and wanted to pass the info along. He goes by Kid-Zoom and you can check out more of his work here.

If you've always wanted to shrink a head, but didn't own Vincent Price's cool patented system, you're in luck... Branded In the 80s will show you how.

Monster flicker stickers

As a lenticular collector and Halloween lover, I was thrilled to discover these Universal Monster Flicker Stickers. Released in 1992, there are six different lenticulars, featuring Frankenstein, his bride, Wolfman, Mummy, Dracula and the Creature. Each one "flickers" between serious and goofy images.

Haunted Mansion display

This Haunted Mansion collector found this in-store display 20 years ago. It was part of some Disney Halloween vhs display stand. Looks great.

Google Maps Halloween

The Google Street View car hasn't come to my neighborhood yet, so every night I say a little prayer that they'll pass by while my yard is decked out for Halloween. Keep you fingers crossed for me. (Here are some folks who were lucky.)

ATYPYK products

ATYPYK, the creator of yesterday's fun Pez art, also sells some fun products. I'm particularly fond of the anatomical t-shirt, coffin-shaped mousetrap, and the swim cap decorated with a painted brain.

Pooch Island

Artist Michael Pucciarelli (aka "Pooch") was "raised on a diet of Ray Harryhausen films, H. P. Lovecraft novels, comics, Walt Disney World and other Florida tourist traps. He paints images that seem to exist in a bizarre afterlife. His art is a visual cocktail of these influences—with a shot of lowbrow culture—shaken and stirred, then served up in a souvenir tiki skull on the Day of the Dead. A self-taught artist, he owes much of his painting skills to over ten years of daily tattooing and drawing."

That ventriloquist puppet must have done something really bad!
