Halloween Countdown: They’re Coming to Get You, Barbara!

Posted in film, halloween, undead with tags , , on October 22, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I’m keeping the vintage theme going today with an amazing series of screenshots put together by My Monster Memories.

I might make a lot of enemies by saying this, but I’m rather tired of zombies (I even stopped watching The Walking Dead!). However, the original Night of the Living Dead is a classic film. Barbara certainly has her melodramatic moments, and the following images display a single brief emotional meltdown (as she recounts how she and her brother were attacked by zombies).

I want to make a flip book out of these. Scrolling through, I’m enjoying this old favorite in a brand new way!

Hilary Wallace suggested her portfolio for my Halloween countdown, and I feel it fits.

This was done in colored pencil:

I adore this vampire’s hands.

Well, miss…your hair looks lovely.

The cake below was the inspiration for a whole post on the subject. Can you believe this is a cake?

The Lost Tarot

Posted in art, tarot, undead, wish list with tags , , , on July 6, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Here is yet another gorgeous tarot deck, a bit out of my price range, that I find very interesting: The Lost Tarot

The use of skulls and skeletons is lovely, and the soft color scheme is quite unique (click image to enlarge a bit).

Hopefully one day this deck will be part of my collection!

I also recommend checking out the other categories of art on Dominic Murphy’s site. There are treasures to be found there!

I am not zombie or unicorn obsessed…but even I must admit that this was pulled off stunningly well.

Guillermo del Toro: Cabinet of Curiosities

Posted in Books, film, monsters, oddities, undead, wish list with tags , , , , , on November 9, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities has me drooling with anticipation!

del-toro-cabinet-of-curiosities-book-cover1

Over the last two decades, writer-director Guillermo del Toro has mapped out a territory in the popular imagination that is uniquely his own, astonishing audiences with Cronos, Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, and a host of other films and creative endeavors. Now, for the first time, del Toro reveals the inspirations behind his signature artistic motifs, sharing the contents of his personal notebooks, collections, and other obsessions.

The result is a startling, intimate glimpse into the life and mind of one of the world’s most creative visionaries. Complete with running commentary, interview text, and annotations that contextualize the ample visual material, this deluxe compendium is every bit as inspired as del Toro is himself.
