Halloween and Horror Shop of the Week: Goblins Hoard

I keep looking and looking to find something that will really wow people during Halloween and I think I have finally found it. These amazing handmade pieces of art by Goblins Hoard would really turn heads. Come and look at what they have in store!

This limited edition Cold Cast Bronze Cthulhu is absolutely gorgeous. From the pictures, it looks as though the bronze actually changes color depending on the light. This is a piece I would keep on my wall all year round, because it deserves to be up longer than once a year!

I love the latter, but this Unpainted Cthulhu Wall Art is more my style and very elegant. The cool part about this version is that since it is blank you can paint it any way you want as long as you have a way to fire it! I actually enjoy how it looks when it is by itself.

Another cool item is the Pirate Skull Mug. I am enjoying the art which has a Maori-like design. I keep thinking this would just be really heavy! It's stunning, but I don't think I could use this everyday, even though it would be pretty sweet. During Halloween I could probably find a way to put flowers in it or use it as a center piece on one of my tables.

This Pirate Coffee Mug II is also very unique. If I bought both of them I could have a Pirate Halloween party! Can you imagine everyone having their own skull mug? These would be great for beer or mead.

Even though this Cthulhu Ornament is considerably smaller than the rest, I can still use this as a way to decorate for Halloween. I've noticed that sometimes even the smallest little enhancements will make a big difference. Maybe something ultra crazy isn't what you want and just want a few little things. This ornament would be perfect for you!

The only way to describe this Werewolf Vampire Wall Hanging Art Set is WOW! These aren't huge pieces of wall art, but the detail is outstanding. I love the moon background for the Werewolf. You can also buy them separately if you don't want both!

The Unpainted Resin Werewolf and Unpainted Resin Vampire are separate. The only catch is that they aren't finished yet, but that might be the fun part! You could always paint them how you'd like, just make sure to buy the correct paint!

Take a look at more stuff by Goblins Hoard on Etsy. There are many unique pieces that will create a spooky environment perfect for Halloween! Tell me what you think in the comments below.

Awesome Horror Cookie Cutters from the Fussy Pup Monsters Collection

Now that the holidays are over I feel we can get back into the Halloween Spirit! I saw these cookie cutters by The Fussy Pup Monsters Collection and thought they would be awesome for Halloween. Not only that, maybe even for a darkened Valentine's Day get together. I can imagine a pretty horrific set of Valentine's Day cookies with these! All of these cookie cutters are made from solid heavyweight copper, jointed using lead free solder.

I can already imagine using the Walking Zombie Halloween Cookie Cutter as a Valentine's design. You could create it as an overly obsessive husband or a stalker! The Walking Zombie Cookie Cutter measures 3 1/4" X 5 1/2" X 3/4".

I love this classic Wicked Witch Halloween Cookie Cutter. It measures 4 1/4" X 6" which is actually a decent sized cookie. I noticed that people use these as ornaments around their house, which I think is a great idea! I would love to have this little witch silhouette on my wall in my kitchen.

Honestly, I think the Howling Werewolf Halloween Cookie Cutter would make a perfect Valentine's Day cookie for those with creative minds. It wouldn't be the best on it's own, so you would have to decorate it.

Maybe the Spooky Ghost Halloween Cookie Cutter is exclusively Halloween, but I still like it a lot.

This Vampire with Cape Halloween Copper Cookie Cutter is absolutely perfect! I could always get away with a vampire during Halloween and definitely use it again for Valentine's Day. The Vampire with Cape Cookie Cutter measures 2 1/4" X 6" X 3/4", so it's a decent size for decorating.

The next few I know I am thinking about getting for Valentine's rather than waiting. You'll know what I mean in just a moment!

The Screaming Zombie Skull Cookie Cutter is a perfect passive aggressive way of describing your angry ex-husband or ex-wife.

I just want to decorate the cookie that comes from Bride of Frankenstein Bust Cookie Cutter! I would have so much fun doing this, I'm having a hard time not getting it for myself.

It's pretty ordinary, but I know some awfully creative people who could create a masterpiece with this Wolf Head Cookie Cutter.

I need to get the Bride of Frankenstein Bust Cookie Cutter AND the Frankenstein Bust Cookie Cutter!

This Nosferatu looking Vampire Head Cookie Cutter is starting to grow on me. Originally I thought it was boring, but I can see some ways decorating it would make it really cool.

Last but not least is the Witch Head Cookie Cutter.

Thanks for checking out these products from The Fussy Pup Monsters Collection. Let me know what you think about these and how you would use these awesome Halloween cookie cutters in your own gothic home.

Darkness Void's Incredibly Cool Candles for Halloween

It's honestly never too early to celebrate Halloween. In my opinion, candles are a simple way of creating an eerie feeling in your house. I also use candles all year around. Darkness Void on Etsy creates all sorts of spooky candles that are Halloween themed. Many of his designs are very beautiful and intricate. I wouldn't mind using them on other occasions aside from Halloween. Most of these candles are designed to order. They also come in all sorts of colors, so contact the artist!

I wouldn't dare ruin this Big Black Beaded Pearl Beeswax Skull Candle. This candle weighs more than two pounds! It measures 5 1/2" tall and 4" across the eye sockets and about 6" from the front jaw to the back of the skull. It's huge! The candle is finely designed with pearls and beads raised above the wax. This is honestly a work of art and would be a great addition to my house!

The Large Spine Beeswax Candle is another beautiful candle. I think I wouldn't hesitate to burn it! This would be a very cool candle to watch as time progresses. It measures about twelve inches tall and is made with 100% beeswax.

These candles give me some really cool ideas for Halloween this year. The Celtic Skull Beeswax Candles are 4" talland come in a variety of colors such as black, white, and green. The designs on these candles show many Celtic characteristics on the crowns.

This Raven Crow Bird Black Beeswax Candle is very elegant. The cool part is that it comes in more than just black. It measures 5 3/4" tall at the head, and it's 8" long from the beak to the tail. This is another year around candle for my house.

The Beeswax Skull Rose Coffin Candle would make a really spooky addition to any house. I feel like there is a lot of detail work that goes into the rose coffin candle. This candle is 4 1/2" long , about 1 1/2" tall at the skull and made with 100% beeswax.

The Frankenstein's Monster Black Beeswax Candle is 5 1/2" tall. This would be such a perfect addition to any haunted gathering! Not only that, but he is uniquely designed including a bat tie.

Check out more of Darkness Void's candles on Etsy. There's more designs than just Halloween, but many of them are dark and wonderful gems! Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Bizarre and Intriguing Vintage Frankenstein and Dracula Collectibles

This, remarkably, is a Frankenstein tissue case. You pull tissues out of his nose - eww!

This vintage 1980s Halloween mask depicts Christopher Lee as Dracula.

I wish I could see a picture of the original flower arrangement that was delivered in this Dracula figural mug from Teleflora!

This papier mache Dracula figurine is from 2007.

This vintage Frankenstein collectible is a Palmolive "Bottle Monster." Huh!

This vintage Universal Monsters Frankenstein mug is huge!

This Dracula ventriloquist dummy creeps me out quite badly!

Here's a quirky vintage Talking Dracula doll from the 1970s.

This silicon life size Frankenstein is the price of a nice used car!

At one point in our not-too-distant past, someone decided it would be a good idea to introduce a pink rubber Frankenstein to humanity.

This pop-up "Frankiestein" game is so cheesy!

Hope you enjoyed this brief tour of Halloween oddities on eBay!
