Igor's Curiosities: VonErickson's Coffin Couch

"Why not enjoy the comfort of the afterlife today? " Indeed.

Igor has discovered a wondorous creepy new item to share. Professional prop builder and artist VonErickson's latest creation, the Coffin Couch, is a strange and macabre piece of furniture to rest your weary bones upon. The lucious velvet cushions are available in a variety of colors, but of course, I would choose purple. Why this just may start a new genre of interior design, hmmm, maybe Neo-Victorian Morgue. I like that.

Already a huge fan of their morbid jewelry, such as the Stitches or Dripping Blood chokers, this dream (or nightmare) sofa has pushed me over the edge to full-fledged fan. Keep up up the ghoulish work!

Friday's F Word: The Addams Family musical!

This week's installment is both freaky and funny!

A huge Addams Family fan, I couldn't wait to share the news that there is soon to be a musical based on the spooky, ooky clan. Bebe Neuwirth, with her Broadway background and dark character roles such as Lilith on Frasier, is perfectly cast as Morticia, my favorite Addams. Halloween is over but it still looks like good clean creepy fun.

It's Merry Gothmas time again!

Why have a boring, traditional stocking this year?

Just listed are several unique stockings in my Merry Gothmas line with TONS of details! Grommet tape, check. Corset lacing, check. Skull studs, check. Faux fur or goth stripes, check. All are oversized and fully padded to hold lots of goodies. :) Available in both my Etsy and Artfire shops!

Friday's F Word: Regretsy

Every product must find the perfect consumer.

Fetus kitty toy? Fish in a Taxidermy Squirrel Suit? Kitty Litter Bag Tote? Poo Soap? Condom Pillow? You know you want it.

Any crafter worth his or her salt has at least heard of Etsy, the marketplace where creative folks can list their wares. But lurking amongst the treasures are, well, bits of trash. Or at least items we can ask, as we wipe tears from our eyes and giggle hysterically, "what the bloody hell were you thinking??"

Luckily, there is a site that is dedicated to sharing these finds aptly named Regretsy. And each gem is presented with such biting sarcasm that it makes you cackle out loud. Regretsy's motto is "Handmade? It looks like you made it with your feet!" You can also follow them on Twitter.

Be careful, because like a train wreck, you can't look away.

Post Halloween assemblage art for sale

We just returned from a spooky weekend in New Orleans and hope everyone had an eerie and memorable Halloween/Samhain!

Now that I am caught up with custom clothing orders, I had a chance to finish up some altered art pieces. "Celebration of All Hallow's Eve" is the first offering and meant for those (like me) who collect Halloween items all year long. It is a miniature wood box/chest all decked out in spooky accents. The second piece, a decidedly Steampunk style featuring lots of clock parts, skeleton keys, and vintage paper is a combination wall hanging and trinket holder.

Both are now available for immediate sale. Enjoy! :)
