I have a new boyfriend, only he doesn't know it. His name is "Voltaire", and not
only is he gorgeous in a gothic sort of way, but he is a phenomenal artist and musician.
He writes and performs some hilariously fun songs themed around dead things
and Hallowe'en and schtuff.
He also creates the wickedly bizarre intros for MTV and Fangoria TV promo spots.
Check out more of his brilliance on YouTube.
Now I would like to invite you into my parlour to peruse my
Hallowe'en decorations and vignettes.
This is my apothecary display.
I have been working on the bottles and jars for weeks, adding
labels and ingredients to each one. Great fun!
The vintage style devil lantern is one of most cherished decorations.
I wish Illuminations was still in business, they had the coolest Hallowe'en stuff.
Here is my toilet paper tube and hot wax candle.
So fricken cool and cheap to make!
Just drop in a battery operated tea light and you have
illuminated perfection without the mess and danger of fire!
My crystal ball and Gryphon stand that I have had for eons!
Plus a really cool skeleton bust I got on clearance last year at Mike's.
The skeleton hand and tarantula is an awesome snow globe.
Do you call it a bat globe if it has bats instead of snow?
Now we get into the bugs.
What is a "Creepy Glowbugg" without her creepy bugs?
My husband about died when I unwrapped this little gem.
He hates spiders and the thought of this thing coming at him in the
jungles of Malaysia kinda made him mad.
Good thing we live in California.
The bug in the upper left reminds me of the Misfits skull, but is actually a
"Human Face Bug". Cool huh?
More bugs and devils and jars.
This is my "Creepeeville" village.
I painted and adorned the houses myself and then
created all the little inhabitants to go in the village.
Some of my vintage pieces, like the tambourine and the noisemakers.
All handed down from my dearly departed Grandparents, the Marcoms.
My creepiest friend, Katt gave me this killer fountain for my
birthday one year.
We are still trying to come up with a realistic blood that
won't gunk up the pump.
Grandma (my husband's) would not be thrilled to see her hutch decorated in such a way.
The again, Grandma is pretty down with the cause.
Cause she loves me!
Cool jar with a skull inside on a fancy pillow and my
favorite lenticular picture.
Even the masks get a Hallowe'en spin.
And let's not forget the mummy cat too!
My very favorite sign, before you enter the living room.
"Free Rusty Lancets for the Kiddies!"
The kitchen gets some goodies too!
Did you get your bottle of "Zombie Zin" this year at Cost Plus?
Oh, you better believe I did!
Lastly, is the "Candy Man".
He reminds me of the preacher who tried to marry Beetlejuice and Lydia
Thanks for schlepping' along with me on my little tour of my home.
