Some of these do have signature but I can’t quite make them out. Ideas on the origins of these pieces?

I’m not one for dressing animals up, Halloween or otherwise…but after seeing this, my darling Rowsdower and Ripley better beware if I can get my hands on a Sharpie and some boxes.
The source gets a hat tip from me for describing himself as a big, bearded & tattooed straight guy who doesn’t give a damn what others think about his love of cats.
Stephanie Buscema’s necklaces are a wonderful little treat for the Halloween lovers out there who want to keep their accessories unique with a dash of sweetness.
These creations come from original paintings so the creatures you feature will not be seen on any mass produced jewelry.
Cute, festive, fun…

Last year in a discussion of Brach’s candy (sweetly nostalgic or disgusting?), under certain conditions, I agreed to re-sample the entire Brach’s collection to affirm or deny my extreme distaste for all-things-Brach’s. I believe I have since been released from this obligation, but I thought I’d dig up some vintage ads for your eyes to chew on…
In my immediate candy sorting ritual upon arriving home from trick or treating, these were always put in the “unwanted crap I probably can’t even trade” pile.
But they’ve been around for ages, and I’d imagine some have a fondness for them based on nostalgia alone, despite the existence of far superior candies. I can respect that.
Or maybe…there are those who truly revel in the taste, like this happy gent below?

When I was a kid, every old lady I knew had a dish of Brach’s candy on her coffee table that sat untouched for years. Perhaps there’s a gene for buying and displaying these particular sweets that switches on around the age of 80.
How do you feel about Brach’s candy?
Pinterest inspired me to do a search for dancing skeleton shirts. I do believe my wardrobe should contain one to display my enthusiasm for the Halloween season (though I’d wear it all year).
Here are some I came across…
Love this one…but $282 for a T-shirt?
Do you like any of these?
I am a tremendous fan of vintage Beistle Halloween decorations, but they can be rather pricey on ebay (if you want originals).
For a more reasonable price range you can visit The Vintage Beistle Store and check out a bunch of reproductions.
Do you have a favorite iconic Halloween decoration? I’d love to do a post about reader favorites.
