Make It a Cotton Candy Christmas with the Killer Klowns Ornament!

Make It a Cotton Candy Christmas with the Killer Klowns Ornament!There’s a big difference between a list of the “best” horror movies and a personal rundown of one’s “favorite” horror movies. Though Killer Klowns from Outer Space isn’t likely to be found on too many “best of” lists, it is nevertheless one of my favorite horror flicks…

…an opinion that is likely shared by many of you reading this right now.

Though the movie is absolutely chock-full of iconic imagery, my favorite image from Killer Klowns is that of the cotton candy cocoons in which the Klowns encase their victims. I just love the idea of twisted clowns wrapping up human corpses in cotton candy and hanging them around their lair… now that’s my kind of home decor!

If you feel the same way, I introduce to you the Cotton Candy Cocoon Christmas ornament, a collaboration between Homemade Horror and my website Freddy in Space. Hand sculpted by artist Gabe LaPeer, cast in resin and then hand painted, the 4″ tall ornament is ready for hanging with a metal loop affixed to the top. All you need to do is stick one of those cheap ornament hooks through the loop, and this bad boy is ready for hanging on your tree… or wherever else you want to hang it!

These limited edition ornaments will be available for 24 hours only, beginning this Friday, November 15, at 10am ET and selling through the following day at the same time. All orders placed in those 24 hours will be filled, and all ornaments will arrive well before Christmas.

Beginning tomorrow, you can get yours for $20, exclusively in the Freddy in Space Store Envy shop!

Vintage Toy Finder ALERT! If You Collect This Is a MUST-READ!

Published

on

Anyone who knows me knows that when it comes to collectibles, I’m like a moth to a flame. Especially vintage toys. I, like many of you, grew up in a dysfunctional family circus. When I reached a certain age, my parents saw fit to take my most beloved toys and give them away to younger kids or just trash them completely. I’m still devastated. My childhood was pretty much nil, and I’ve been swimming in chaos ever since.

Once things finally “calmed down” a bit, I began reclaiming these relics of happier times. Damned straight I got an 18″ Kenner Alien, a Stretch X-Ray doll, a Mighty Men and Monster Maker, the Bermuda Triangle board game, etc. I revel in them as few items make me as happy as they do. As a result I always keep my eye out for things, specifically horror related toys I may have missed.

Enter 1967’s Ka-Bala, the most insane and intricate Ouija board I’ve ever seen. I don’t use Ouijas, but once I saw this, it was love at first shiver. The problem with collecting toys like this is that rarely can you find them complete. For Christmas Debi tracked down Ka-Bala for me, BUT we were missing the instructions. There’s not much sense in playing or having a board game if you don’t know said rules.

I scoured the Internet but only came up with a few sites that were charging astronomical prices for replacement parts and/or instructions. It was ludicrous. So I busted out my Creepy resources and asked our resident board game loony David Hahn, who writes Last Meeple Standing for us, for some help. Within days he and his wondrous wife, Tiffany (who also works with David on Meeple), led me to a site called Lost and Found Vintage Toys maintained by Brenda Roudabush.

Brenda, who says she has “gotten to play happiness broker several times reuniting vintage kids with their old long lost toys,” got right to work and sent me some amazing scans of the instructions and more.

After piquing my interest with her knowledge of such things, I can’t recommend her more. If you’re a collector, and chances are very good that you are because, well you’re reading this, make sure to check out the site listed above. It’s like an encyclopedia of happiness! Enjoy, and tell her Creepy sent ya!

For even more fun check out my other go-to toy site, Raymond Castile’s Gallery of Monster Toys. Quick trivia re Ray… He’s the spitting image of Coffin Joe and played young Zé do Caixão in José Mojica Marins’ 2008 film Embodiment of Evil. How friggin’ cool is that? It’s a small and sometimes wonderful world, I tell ya!
