Creepmas Day 8: Salad Fingers 10th Birthday

Posted in absurd, animation, video with tags , , on December 8, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

If you’re sick of sweet holiday cartoons (and heartwarming movies about Christmas dogs…what’s with all those?), check out the Salad Fingers 10th anniversary episode!

I even made a Hubert Cumberdale sock puppet a while back to commemorate a beloved character.

The end features the creepiest gift of all time.

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?”

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!

Eddie the Yeti’s art really captures the Creepmas spirit!

Creepmas Day 3: Breaking Bad Ginger Bread RV

Posted in christmas, craft, food, TV with tags , , , on December 3, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

This is not “creepy” in the monstrous, undead sense, but I would say the effects of meth count (don’t do drugs, kids!).

Check out this brilliantly crafted Breaking Bad Gingerbread RV (smoke out of the top…nice touch)!

Creepmas Day 2: Hearse Ornaments

Posted in christmas, death, decoration with tags , , on December 2, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

A gift for the morbidly inclined…though rather tough to find (hey, that rhymed! Okay…enough). If health/money allowed me to buy gifts this year, I’d definitely get one of these (for you, Bettie!).

The 13 Days of Creepmas

Posted in announcement, christmas with tags , on December 1, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

I just came across this collaborative blog project yesterday, and decided to participate.

I'm a CREEP for The 13 Days of CREEPMAS

The 13 Days of Creepmas is an online Celebration of Spookiness from December 1 – 13. The idea is to bring a macabre twist to Christmas and the holidays.

While I don’t have 13 days of FEATURE posts, I have hundreds of Creepsmas “stocking stuffers” to give (rather like my “desktop goodies,” but with creepy holiday fare!).

Case in point:

I’d also appreciate any links you all have to spooky holiday treats. Stay tuned!

Hiroko Kubota has a collection for cat lovers (like me). Embroidered cats peeking out of pockets! I would wear any of these, shamelessly.
