Creepmas Day 13: Desktop Goodies

Posted in absurd with tags , , , , on December 13, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

It’s the last day of Creepmas (though I’m sure I’ll be posting other creepy things this month).

The doll and penguin are sad to see Creepmas go.

Hmmm…light bondage merman?

Straight from the gym, all blinged out and ready for “da club.”

A lollipop? Doctors don’t do that. Trust me…I know.

Creepmas Day 11: German Santa Breads

Posted in absurd, christmas, food with tags , , on December 11, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

These came up in an unrelated search…and I was intrigued. I could find very little info on them, save for the title of “Santa Breads.”

Does anyone know more about the origin of these glutinous little creepies?

Creepmas Day 9: Madame Macabre Shop

Posted in christmas, craft, decoration, macabre with tags , , , on December 9, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Madame Macabre Shop has what may be my favorite creepy ornaments. Unlike the standard “spooky” fare, these are actually disconcerting…in a masterfully subtle way.

Almost Lovecraft-ian…yet so unique…

Creepmas Day 7: The Amazing Mail Surprise

Posted in absurd, christmas, humor, products with tags , , , on December 7, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

This is too incredible not to post. A recent ebay purchase arrived with this “free gift” in the box…which, due to its high AV (absurdity value), is greater than the purchase itself.

Here we have the bent, aging, awkward package of a thing you shove over your made-up face so your face doesn’t come off on your shirt.

It was the first thing I saw upon opening the package, and I thought “someone must have gotten this awesome find for me as a gift.”

Note the 1988 manufacturing date on the bottom left. I live for bizarre stuff like this.

Creepsmas Day 6: LA Police Gear Tactical Christmas Stocking

Posted in christmas, products with tags , on December 6, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

I suppose this is technically more “badass” than creepy, but once I set eyes on this my brain flooded with ideas of how to fill all the little pockets and loops with treats! What an awesome gift that would make.

Creepmas Day 5: Krampus Overload

Posted in christmas, events, monsters with tags , , on December 5, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

I smell a giant trend approaching (well it’s already well underway, really). Like zombies, bacon and cupcakes, the krampus is rising in pop culture.

KRAMPUSFEST begins today:
A “multi-venue celebration” that will run this year from December 5th to the 21st. A troupe of costumed Krampus performers will appear at each venue, including the Krampus Ball, an art exhibition, and a publicly held run held in conjunction with the Downtown Art Walk. Each member of the Krampus Los Angeles Troupe makes their costume mostly by hand.

Boy, I remember when I used to mention the krampus and people raised a confused eyebrow. “What about cramps, now?”

tumblr_mw2xzpqu3i1qzfsnio3_500

Now they are all over sweaters, ornaments, cards…

There is an amazing art show I wish I could attend.

Much more info at the Krampus Los Angeles…a blog entirely dedicated to this folklore fiend!
