Rosita Y Conchita

 



Last Year at Comicon I found this beautifully written story about Rosita and her sister Conchita. Check out my original post here.

I was very excited to see the booth back at comicon this year!


With next to no hesitation, I spent $15 on a little plush Rosita, and a button!


I am happy my Rosita y Conchita collection has grown - I hope you'll check out the book if you get a chance!

I can't get enough of these sugar skulls!

Katie Cook Mini Prints

We had so much fun at the Emerald City Comicon this year, I'm not even sure where to start. For me it was a complete jack pot, but I'm not going to start with my huge Halloween find... ... so let me start with one of my favorites! Katie Cook. I stumbled upon Katie's art a couple years ago, and she did a wonderful job drawing my Cat and Dog! Last year I got inspired by my "Universal Monsters" theme and asked her to do Dracula, The Wolfman, The Bride of Frankenstein and Frankenstein. I also bought a pumpkin and a ghost from here to complete the theme. She cleverly put Frank and his bride next to each other on the same card, so my collection was a little... uneven. I decided this year my first stop would be at her booth for a Mummy to even things up again! She did not disappoint! He's so cute! So I went straight home and fixed up my framed Katie Cook art, Drac & Wolfie in one, Bride & Frank and Mummy in the next, and then the ghost and pumpkin together. I love the way it turned out!

The Wicked Witch of the West

There is one thing in this world that I love nearly as much as Halloween. It's the Wizard of Oz. I watched it with my Dad when I was a kid, and it holds a million truly great memories for me. While my Dad would always pretend to be terrified of the flying monkeys to entertain me I was honestly terrified of The Wicked Witch of the West.

Played by Margaret Hamilton, the Wicked Witch of the West was the supreme villain. All of my Witch Costumes were made to look like the Wicked Witch of the West, and I have always adored her menacing ways of making Dorothy suffer (not that I liked to see Dorothy suffer!). Margaret's face is known in just about every household, and the phrase "I'll get you my Pretty... and your Little Dog too!" is uttered by almost every person who dawns a black pointy hat.


I would like to say that I planned my pilgrimage to see Margaret Hamilton's hat, but I did not. I stumbled upon it while checking out the EMP in Seattle. They have a new Fantasy exhibit there, and here my friends is where you can see the Wicked Witch of the Wests' hat!


Isn't it beautiful!?!?

I seriously gasped audibly when I saw it.

What's your holy grail? This is (one of) mine!

Funko POP! Ghostbusters!

Dr. Peter Venkman
 Okay... So I finally bit on this line. I fought my love for it for a LONG time, because who has room for stuff like this?

Apparently I think I do.

I picked up Wicket this weekend because of my love for the Ewok's, but when I heard of the release of the Ghostbuster crew... I just about cried out with joy!
Dr. Egon Spengler

Dr Raymond Stantz

Slimer - My favorite!

Mr. Staypuft!
Rumor has it that Winston is coming out with the Ecto-1 soon... I don't know which one of those figures I'm more excited about!

Sugar Shaker...


In all of the touring of my own City I've done in the past few days, I haven't been here to post! Sorry! But I have a few good things coming... Comicon is THIS weekend!
And, while I was walking around in all the trinket stores that Seattle has to offer, I found this...

I totally wish I had a use for one of these. SO CUTE!
Er... I mean Spooky!

Hellboy


Our kitchen has a very specific theme to it. Comicbook/Seattle. I think Hellboy also kind of falls in the "Halloween" category as his story lines are rather Spooky!

This print was done by Mike Mignola specifically for the Emerald City Comicon. When we saw it, we knew we had to have it - and now that we're in our new space, It's hanging smack dab in the middle of our kitchen!

What's your favorite Hellboy storyline?

Blow Mold Frank!


I finally got to dig this guy out of storage, and have a home for him in my house! He is a newer piece of my Halloween collection, but I'm happy he's here!
It's a 35" Blow Mold Frankenstein he's vintage, and I haven't had him for long, so I'm looking forward to installing a light bulb in him to see if he actually works! Could be an adventure!

Fresh from the Box!


Thank you for your support while I worked on (and around) all my boxes! 

One of my first projects was my two shelves of Halloween on our large Ikea Expidit bookshelf in our living room that my wonderful husband both disassembled and reassembled for us! 

I am so happy to have my little slice of Halloween in my home now. It feels so normal.

Lots of goodness on its way.... delayed.

Have you ever seen those signs "You are Here"... well, this is my "You are Here" picture... in the middle of boxes for what seems like months now.

In October (OF ALL MONTHS) my Husband and I were displaced from our home by a turd of a landlord who refused to pay HIS bills, and a bank. Needless to say we've been couch surfing at our friend's house for a couple months. Now, we're on the wait for our NEW landlords to get things all spruced up so we can get our crap out of storage.

But in the meantime, My clothes are in a box, my Halloween goodies are in a box, my DISHES AND SILVERWARE... are in a box.

I'm getting restless. But now that we're moving into a house I'm hopeful my Halloween projects will hit an all time high.

Thanks for hanging in there with me - I will be back.... Muahahahaha....
