I... Want... My... Cupcake?!"

Those of you that have been following this blog from the beginning are, by now, fully aware of my undying love and restless obsession with the Stephen King film classic, Creepshow (1981) directed by George Romero. Having watched this incredible ode to precode comic book horror countless times, (and read the spectacular Wrightson graphic novel adaptation just as many too), I felt this was the year to finally have my cake-- and eat it too! Thank you Trick or Treat Studios for officially licensing the "Father's Day" Nathan Grantham (and The Crate's Fluffy) masks for CS fiends like myself, and thank you to the Goodwill for hooking me up with a totally affordable ($17) full funeral suit to properly destroy (with the help of a relative.) A big no thanks to Mattel though who now make Barbie Styling Heads so small that they are no longer appropriate for cake-size horror props, but Hell, I'll come back from the grave any day for a tiny tasty cupcake too, so eh, make due with whatcha got being my current Halloween 2017 motto.





































Enjoy the pix, we hope everyone had a creeptacular Halloween as well! THOIA will be right back with more golden moldies from the vault in just a few so stay tombed... and hey, get yourself a second helping of that cake-- it's awfully delicious!

Thank you, Diablo!

OK, now we followers of THOIA have to keep an eye out (evil eye out that is) for a life sized Barbie styling head for sale in thrift stores, yard or garage sales to complete Karswell's remake of 'Father's Day' that Romero himself would be proud of.

Happy post Halloween everyone!

Incredible costume!

Mr. Karswell said...

Thanks again you guys! And actually I do see those larger styling heads all the time at thrift shops and antique malls-- but of course when I actually need one there aren't any to be found!

Well, the nice thing about Bedelia's cupcakes is that you bake them by the tin-full--meaning you can invite all your graveyard pals over, too, and there will be plenty for everybody. Excellent costume, Karswell! The mask is great, but the suit is a work of art.

At the thrift store today what do you suppose I happened to see and buy? Yes, you guessed it, a Barbie type styling head. It has brown hair but add a wig to it or put on extra icing and no one will know the difference.

I know I know, I didn't have to buy it, it wasn't necessary, etc. but I did it anyway to complete Karswell's horror ensemble/life sized horror diorama/call it what you will.

I think any follower of THOIA would do the same as our way of saying Thanks Karswell for all the hard work you do. We really appreciate it.

Haha-- I hope you send me some pictures after you've eaten it! Thanks again for all the comments and compliments on my costume-- it was seriously loads of fun putting it together!

Back to the regular comic posts tomorrow-- stay tombed ya'll!!
