Does anyone know who the artist is for this piece? I love it, but can’t seem to find more info.



What Would You Like to See?

Posted in audience participation, halloween with tags , on October 19, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve gathered way too much Halloween stuff to post (as always), so I’d like to narrow down the lot by asking what you guys would like to see in the rest of the countdown. Please take a second to click on a preference!

Feel free to comment with other suggestions as well.

Artist, anyone?

I found this on Pinterest ages ago, but no artists was credited. Anyone recognize it?

Posted in audience participation with tags on May 26, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Wow, it’s been ages since I’ve done a theme week here! But a theme week is a commitment, so I want to pick something you guys want to see. Which of the following would you choose?

Some friends have sent me great creepy/unique holiday pictures and I’d love to compile them into an “audience participation” desktop goodies post.

If you’d like to share something, please contact me! Holiday image potluck time! Let’s get together on this…

Call for Audience Participation: Worst “Sexy” Costume

Posted in absurd, audience participation, halloween with tags , , on October 10, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

“Sexy” costumes have gotten really out of control. This, we know.

I ask you, awesome readers, to help me find the absolute WORST ones for a pre-Halloween roundup.

I offer Sexy Mr. Potato Head as inspiration.

Submissions will be gratefully credited. Ideas?

It took a while, but I finally got on Pinterest. I won’t be uploading things from my archive of 60,000 images (way too overwhelming). It’s more of a personal thing containing items I haven’t collected elsewhere, which may grow slowly over time.

Should you choose…

If you have suggestions for great boards involving dark art/illustration, oddities, antiques, vintage, monsters, Halloween, geekery, kitsch, photography or any of the countless things I post about, don’t hesitate to recommend them!

I suggest following my soul’s dear twin Carrie Filetti for amazing images.

Let the Countdown Begin!

Posted in announcement, audience participation, halloween, photography, vintage with tags , , , , on October 1, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

It’s that time again!

I’ll be participating in the Cryptkeeper’s annual blog roundup of countdowns.

About 87% in my poll wanted a month long countdown, 10% wanted two weeks. So to be fair to everyone I will probably do the vast majority of posts with a Halloween theme and a small percentage of others…I think. We’ll see what strikes me.

I’m putting on my party dress (in my imagination) to celebrate.

In real non-imaginary life (with special guest):

If you come across great links or images, please share! Halloween-ites must stick together.

Halloween Countdown 2012 Poll

Posted in audience participation, halloween with tags , on September 27, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

While I am completely in the spirit of Halloween already, I’d like to give an option or two for the less obsessed. I plan on doing a Halloween Countdown again this year. How long should it be?

Majority rules (though I may intersperse Halloween posts throughout the month if the shortest option wins). Thanks for your input!
