Hallowedding 2016: The Rings!

     Raven and I searched for a long time to find just the right rings for our Hallowedding.  We looked at traditional rings, black rings, antique rings, etc., but none seemed quite right for this quirky couple.  We wanted something very unique that spoke to both of us.  We finally came across these peculiar handcrafted beauties from Metal Monkey Jewellery, an Etsy Shop located in Halifax, Canada.

Raven Skull Band Set from Metal Monkey Jewellery on Etsy
     Words cannot express how giddy we both were when we saw these rings online.  They were absolutely perfect.  I contacted the Etsy shop owner Graeme Ross immediately with a multitude of questions about them.  He was very friendly and a complete delight to talk to.  He pleasantly answered all my questions--and there were a lot of them folks.  After that, there was no doubt in my mind that these were the rings for us.  He kept in touch throughout the process, letting us know the status of the rings.  When they arrived at our doorstep, I believe, we both squeed with joy.

     We knew a long time ago that we wanted skull boxes to put the rings in for the ceremony.  We found these museum quality skulls with hinged jaws on  However, we ran into a dilemma with how to present the rings inside them.  So, I dredged the internet to find these orange & black stress ball brains from Office Playground (which I, sadly, just discovered has closed up shop).  The brains fit perfectly inside the skulls.  We were quite pleased with the presentation.

These did come with skull tops but are not pictured here.

     Well, that's all for today my peculiar friends.  Have a wonderfully dreadful day!

I will be late to my own funeral...

   So for those don't know me all that well... The month of October is an incredibly busy time of year for us (the whole family).  The family packs it full of yard haunts, fun activities, and parties.  We give it everything we've got and quite frankly, afterward, we feel very burnt out from it and sad that it's over.  It usually takes a month or two to completely recover.  And 2016 was especially draining having planned a wedding.
     I had planned to offer up posts about our wedding in December, last year, giving time for the photos to arrive and having taken time to recuperate from it all.  However, with the other holidays and all of those festivities, it became quite difficult to meet that deadline.  Then directly proceeding the holidays I got very ill and spent a week in the hospital.  That took another couple of months for me to recuperate my strength.  So long story short, it has taken me until now to finally post pictures from our Hallowedding.  I will finally be posting pictures--for those that may have been interested in how it turned out.

Stay Tuned.

Until next time my peculiar friends...

New Toy!

     As some of you may know already, my wife and I, are huge fans of the movie Trick 'r Treat.  Well, last week, my MezcoToyz Sam Figure came in the mail.  I ordered it from Movie Replicas Direct.  They "...offer fans of movie collectibles the big shop feel with a small shop’s heart."  This company really came through for me!  I thought it was a pre-order for next month and would have to wait a bit for it to arrive.  It came in a couple days, folks!  I believe they may still have some left, go check 'em out.  It goes for $19.99 plus S/H.  This company also has some other really cool horror & movie collectibles as well.  I feel my wallet draining as we speak.

     Believe me, this is a work of art and worth every penny.  Also, if you're looking to get one, hurry, they are selling out quickly.  I had to scour the internet to find some still in stock.  I was getting really discouraged until I found Movie Replicas Direct.

     I'd better get to ordering another one because I think my youngest nephew is going to be a bit miffed that he doesn't have one too.  We share a bond over this movie and he was Sam for our wedding last October.  Wedding pictures to finally come in the near future.

My youngest nephew dressed up as Sam for our Hallowedding.  Gotta love him.

I was just really impressed with them and wanted to send them some love.

New Collectible & Future Project

Dept. 56 Bat Lamp
     I couldn't wait to share this with you all.  I saw this lamp a few years ago at Mangelsen's.  I really loved it but didn't love the price tag at $250.  Well, yesterday Aunt & Uncle Spooky called to tell us they found something we would probably love.  They were absolutely right!

     It is missing the big beautiful bat at the very top of it but for a sale price of $40 I couldn't resist it.  And because it was so cheap, it gives me permission to make all the alterations I like.  I was never a fan of the green glitter accents, so that will be the first thing to go.  I'm thinking maybe purple glitter instead.  For now, I will have to just stare at it awhile until I figure out what to do with it.

Thanks again, Aunt & Uncle Spooky, you know exactly what we like!

I'm Back from the Dimension 404

on Hulu

Hey, folks!  I'm back.  I took a wild ride to Dimension 404 and lived to tell the tale.  No seriously, If you love shows like The Twilight Zone and Goosebumps, this is a great series.  It aired in April of this year so, there is currently only 1 Season and it's comprised of only 6 episodes.  I loved every one of them.  I have to say my favorite one was episode 4: Polybius.  I loved seeing all the old references from my childhood.  It even has Adrienne "freaking" Barbeau in it.  I mean come on, do I need to say more. Yes?  Ok, well, it also has Ryan Lee (Champ) from the 2015 Goosebumps movie in it.  He is proving to be a great actor.  I really hope Hulu puts out a second season.  In the meantime, go check it out and give it some love.

I'm not scheduled for another wild ride for awhile now although I do hear The Outer Limits calling my name.   I promise to be better about posting from now on.  In the meantime, I hope everyone is having a delightfully dreadful summer.

So, until next time my peculiar friends.
