I just love this woman’s work so much…I feel a compulsion to post the majority of her projects as they emerge. Here are a few amazing spooky treats for the Halloween season.

Halloween Countdown: The Return of Monster Cereals

Posted in food, halloween, monsters, retro, undead with tags , , , , on October 2, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

I’m sure most have you have heard all five monster cereals are back on shelves this year. This means the return of long-discontinued Frute Brute and Yummy Mummy.

The current boxes:
Monster-Cereals-2013-e1377213512433

And the FAR superior retro versions, which have resurfaced as a Target exclusive.
Retro-2013-Monsters-e1377213862105

These comparative photos substantiate the point I often make about how digital artistry (though often incredible, and I freely give credit where it is due) can positively suck the soul out of media.

Tell me your cereal experiences! Which boxes did you buy? Taste verdicts?

Seance: The Board Game

Posted in retro, toys, undead, vintage with tags , , , on July 1, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Today I give you a rare Milton Bradley treat, manufactured in 1972:
pic1479006_md

Players bid on dead Uncle Everett’s possessions and the high bidder listens to instructions from their dead Uncle via a record (played on the record player hidden in the deck.) When all the items have been bid on and acquired, the record in the desk in turned over and Uncle Everett tells the players what each of the items is worth or how is due in taxes for the item. The player with the most cash at the end of the game is the winner.

While this game is undeniably awesome, I have trouble conceiving a way for the same person or group of people to play it more than once. After finding out what the items are worth…well…it becomes a dead giveaway (pun intended). Perhaps there is some chance to how the items are acquired or how one gets to bid?
