Vote for Alice and Malice

VoteAliceCooper.com

Alice chose Tom Hanks as his running mate,
but I think Malice BeGoth is a better choice.


You'll see her in my Wee Wonderland,
which I'll be unveiling this week.

I'm channeling her on the banner.
Here's the full photo:

The Roots of Mr. Potato Head

Are uncovered in this short horror film:


Mr. Potato Head made his debut in 1952.
He was just plastic body parts you put on a real potato then.


Mrs. Potato Head joined him in 1953.
Followed by more friends and family.



He got his plastic potato body in 1964.
And has worn many costumes from then to now.
I think this one is my favorite though:

Frieddy Krueger

You can get him and a Jason Potato Head here.

Happy belated National Potato Day!

The Return of SLASHERMANIA!

FREAKTOWN COMICS PRESENTS

SLASHERMANIA

1983. Troubled teens from New York and Los Angeles are taken to a summer camp facility
to be trained as counselors and mix safely with other people their own age.
Little do they know they are being watched by an audience hungry for sex & violence.
They are the designated victims for a bizarre contest of murder and mayhem –

WELCOME TO SLASHERMANIA!

Masked maniacs from across the USA, Canada, Italy & the UK compete in various categories:
Best Male Solo Death! Best Female Solo Death! Coitus Interruptus! Sin Punishment!
Most Creative Kill! Biggest Multiple Death! The coveted Slasher of the Year award!

“And the slashie goes to...”

Written by Russell Hillman. Pencils by Ron Joseph and CJ Camba.
Inks by Ron Joseph, Jake Isenberg and CJ Camba. Colours by Harry Saxon. Letters by Sergio Calvet.

Slashermania is an original graphic novel in the tradition of films such as Scream, Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, The Final Girls and Cabin in the Woods. Functioning both as a tribute to, and an examination of, the eighties slasher movie phenomenon, it’s mostly played straight but with an undercurrent of post-modern self-awareness and some appropriately inappropriate laughs along the way - carefully designed not to undercut the scares.

It should appeal to readers of titles such as Tim Seeley’s Hack/Slash, Williamson/Henderson’s Nailbiter and Alex de Campi’s Grindhouse miniseries.


 You may recall I did a post on this two years ago.
Sadly the Kickstarter campaign for it fell through,
but a new one started today and runs to Sept. 13th.
Check it out and back it here!

Want to know more before you go?

Download a FREE preview here!

Listen to the soundtrack playlist on YouTube here!

And follow Freaktown Comics on Twitter for teasers and polls here!
 
I enjoyed the workprint edition and am eager to see more of him:

By the way, August 22nd to 28th will be Wonderland Week here!

Music Monday: Fetus Feast



Those three songs by The Flaming Lips were on a flash drive,
which was housed inside the pictured gummy fetus.
Sadly they're no longer available,
but you can make a gummy fetus with this:

Fetus Cookie Cutter

You can also make a fetus out of meat.
Bon appetit!


Nurse Bathory

By day she hangs in a cave that's dark as a grave,
She induces fright in a hospital nursery by night,
Dining on fresh baby meat,
But no one suspects her cause she's so sweet.

This poem and post was inspired by Antropophagus (1980).

Pamela's Pumpkin Party

I'm changing this to Dress Up A Doll Day,
since I'm waiting for part of my costume.

Say hello to my little friend Pamela.
That's her standard outfit.

I dressed Pamela in her Out to Dinner Outfit.

And put a witch hat on her.

I dressed the wee witch's cat as a warlock.
He posed purrfectly with Pamela's pumpkin.

Then we dined on pumpkin pie lollipops.

Which we topped with astronaut ice cream
and washed down with pumpkin pie soda.
I bought all these festive food items at Vat19.com.

Did you dress up a doll or with a doll?
If so, comment with a link to your post.

Happy Halloween in July!

Music Monday: Thriller

On Carson last night Vincent Price said he commissioned a painting by Dali!
This beautiful one to be exact:
The Madonna and the Mystical Rose

I thought that was so cool, so I had to share.
I loved Vincent's art discussion with Johnny and Joan Rivers.
Sadly I couldn't find a clip of that episode, which was from 1974.
But I found one of the Halloween 1987 episode,
where Vincent recites his rap from Thriller!


I know you want to hear the whole song now,
so here it is with a doll version of the video:


Vincent's wife Coral Browne's birthday would've been Saturday.
You can read Vincent's daughter Victoria's post for Coral here.
I hope to meet her at Barnes & Noble in Arlington VA on August 6.
She'll be signing copies of Vincent's cookbook. All the info is here.

Ghostbusty


That song reminded me of this picture by Tylero88:
See an alternate version of it on my Facebook page here.

I was going to save the song for Music Monday,
but want to share this SDCC exclusive MH doll:

I got her! Tomorrow is the last day you can get her here!

Speaking of Monster High,
check out my friend Jaime with her Draculaura doll:
I love that she's rocking a Draculaura tee too!

I want to see a photo of YOU with a doll on the 31st,
which I've made Dress Up With A Doll Day!
If you'd rather not be in the photo, that's okay.
You can just post a photo of your dressed up doll
and call it Dress Up A Doll Day!

Don't have a doll? Print a paper doll!
Like this Halloween Betty Boop one:


Then cut it out, dress it up, take a photo and post it!

Or make a virtual doll here!
