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.

20131206_080016

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.

Watched Poltergeist II the other day (great movie, but the first was awesome), and happened to pause for a break on this comical frame:

Ah, the 80′s…when movies had their own cheese-tastic rap theme songs. Take Monster Squad for example. What’s your favorite 80′s horror movie?

Halloween Countdown: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes Shirt

Posted in absurd, anthropomorphic, craft, film, halloween, humor, video with tags , , , , , , , on October 28, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Due to illness, it’s been well over a year since I’ve done any kind of crafty project. I miss crafting every single day! Although I’m not actually able to leave the house this Halloween, that’s no excuse not to try to make my own fun here!

My lovely cousin Alaine and I had a mini craft party so I could make an idea I had been pondering this past week: ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES SHIRT!

If you are not familiar with this fine film, it is a must-see for any B-movie fan.

Attack_of_the_Killer_Tomatoes

So here’s my shirt. I could see people perusing the booths of horror conventions wearing a fine killer tomato face.

20131028_091054

Here it is, stuffed with a pillow, looking all round and evil (I’m way too skinny to give it its rightful shape).

20131028_092209

I found a random bottle of green hairspray in the house (jackpot, right?) so I thought I’d make my hair into tomato “vines.” This was a marvelous failure. I couldn’t get much color to actually come out of the bottle, so I ended up with splotchy green patches here and there, and a whole lot of compressed air shooting in my face.

Now look at the camera and say FAIL!

I also made a valiant, though completely unsuccessful, effort with the bathroom mirror to get a picture that showed me with the entire T-shirt. I couldn’t use flash due to the reflection, and without flash I couldn’t stay still enough to get a shot that wasn’t blurry enough to be considered bad conceptual art.

Oh well.

As you may remember from Rabid Mouse Attack, I really enjoy making cheap, cheesy horror costumes. Are you dressing up this year? Did you make a costume?

Halloween Countdown: Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake, with Bonus Cake Wrecks

Posted in food, halloween, humor with tags , , on October 20, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Go ahead, get it out…“Chocolate what-the-WHAT now?”

Mayonnaise. In cake. Believe it.

This cake is perfect for Halloween because it’s a trick AND a treat. Apparently, this recipe has been around for a long time but I just discovered it (asking my aunt, a fabulous cook, to make one the other day).

Recipes before the internet!
Chocolate Mayonaise Cake

And a modern one:

You will not taste the mayo. I repeat…you will not.

I ate half of the cake in one day, and I REGRET NOTHING! Mine was a gluten free, vegan version found here (because it’s easier on my currently fragile digestion), but there are lots to choose from.

And now…

Bonus CAKE WRECKS!
