Sam - Trick R' Treat

How can something be so cute and so menacing at the same time?

Trick R' Treat is one of my favorite (modern) scary movies, and I have a bit of a hankering to buy Funko POP vinyl toys.

This maybe my gateway drug into the Funko world.

Great HORROR Campout - July 25th & 26th

I was driving downtown when I saw this billboard... I was immediately intrigued, and after reading more about it I'm absolutely certain I would not be any good at this, but wow would it be fun! Just listening to the music on the website gets me jazzed up to watch a horror movie!

This is basically an organized camping experience where you can either pay $139 and get the everliving crap scared out of you, or pay $99 to be in the "chicken" zone where they dont' scare the crap out of you, but you can camp out, watch scary movies, roast marshmallows and listen to scary stories, which would be way more up my alley! Now, if I could just find 3 friends to go with me!

Check it out! and let me know if you go! I'd love to hear about the experience!

Monsters of the Movies Magazines

My husband and I went to a toy show a couple weekends ago and I snagged these out from under a pile of junk on a guys table, I paid $5 for the two of them, they are copyrighted 1974. I haven't had a chance to sit down and read them yet, but I am happy I grabbed them if only for the awesome cover art! Anyone out there know much about these?

I have major kitty fever right now... so this is what you're going to see today!

Smushy faces!

I am in the middle of the B-o-o Project, I'm hoping to be able to show it to you soon!

Happy Haunting this week!

Craft Projects... In Progress

I have not yet started these... but I went to Hobby Lobby the other day and picked up a few things to get my craft on for Halloween!

I found the letters and Pumpkins above for $1.50 each package, and the house below I scored for $2.50 (it was 50% off).

Classy Halloween

Go ahead and file this under "How I wish my house looked on Halloween". So classic and clean looking! For real though, I might try and accomplish that orange pumpkin look. I love the hanging bats.

Meanwhile... I'll be Howling at the moon while I watch Jason hack up some young camp counselors.

Also... here's your bit of triva for the day...

If you have a FEAR of Friday the 13th, it's called friggatriskaidekaphobia

Happy Haunting!

Halloween Play-Dough

A Huge THANK YOU to the "Idea Room" for this fantastic Craft!

See those menicing faces above? Inside they're nothing but DOUGH! Play Dough!

This would be a great "Treat" to hand out to my local neighbor kids - we only have a few stop by (so I hear, this is my first year in our house) so I am thinking about making a special treat. This looks inexpensive and fun!

Truth be told? I'd totally just go buy the Playdough!

The Kenova Pumpkin House

Someday I want to move here...

How many HOURS do you think it takes to light all those tea lights?

With nearly 3,000 hand carved pumpkins... I would start running out of ideas, and be awfully sick of eating baked pumpkin seeds!

Either way ... In the famous words of Liz Lemon... "I want to go to there"

Who ya gunna Call?

Funko POP Line!
 In addition to being totally in love with Halloween, I am also quite a toy collector. I blame it on my handsome husband who has anything from Marvel Universe, Star Wars and GI Joes. He showed me how to embrace my inner child, and taught me it is OK to like toys.

But, I find myself in a dilemma. I love the Ghostbusters, and while I'd love to collect ALL THE GHOSTBUSTERS I can't. I can't afford it nor do I have the room for it.

So... I'm faced with a choice. There are lots of great toy lines out there, but I'm wondering... Do I go with the New Funko POP? They're so cute, and you know my love of "Cute" Scary things.

Or do I go with Mini Mates? Lego? or the Originial Kenner toys? Each have their own pros and cons... but I just can't decide.

The FUNKO's are cute, but they have no posing abilities, and I have a little problem with the fact that only ONE person can fit into the Ecto, and that the Staypuft is the same size as the rest of them. But they are cute, and the Slimer kicks ass!
Mini Mates
 The Minimates trouble me a little because I don't love their faces. But their Ecto is pretty cool, and by the looks of it - They'd fit in there. But I don't love the StayPuft - who again, is about the same size.

 I like the Lego guys... The problems I have with them mostly is the price! I don't like any of the potential Slimer's I've seen so far, but it would be kind of fun to build the Ecto.

Lego Ecto1
Last, but not least - the vintage Kenner Toys...

Kenner Toys.

These are actually so far my favorite - the issue I have would be tracking them down for a decent price, but I think with my Husband and his super savy ebay skills, this may not be as big of a battle as I think. I love the Egon... and the Ecto... Be still my heart... and last, but not least - there are Several Stay Puft Options... many are larger than the figures.

No read on Slimer yet on this one... but I think I just need to keep diggin.

What are your guy's thoughts? What would you go with? What do you think are the pros and cons?
Am I over thinking this?

Keep in Mind...

It's May - which means in 5 short months we will be Halloweening all up in this joint! (wow, I almost hate myself for typing that). Any ways, I am SO excited, and am allready plotting my decorations, food and costume - how about you?

When I plot my costume, I always keep in mind my Safety tips... you know for when my 30 year old self decides to go trick-or-treating! Seriously though, Halloween can't be fun if you're not safe, so keep your mind on these tips as you prepare for the big day!
