I make soft cloth horror dolls. All handmade primitive style.
Welcome Dear Freinds, Enter If You Dare...
In the dark cobwebbed room resides the fears and nightmares only a choice few could love...Come in and make yourself at home, visit with the creepy, the intense, the bloody fiends that inhabit the night...stay awhile...
My fave poem is the Highwayman, its pretty lengthy to type so I picked another dear poem for you....
Solitude by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Laugh, and the world laughs with you
Weep and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer
Sigh it is lost on the air.
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.
Rejoice, and men will seek you
Grieve, and they turn and go
They want full measure of all your pleasure
But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many
Be sad and you lose them all.
There are none to decline your nectared wine
But alone you must drink life's gall.
Feast and your halls are crowded
Fast, and the world goes by.
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure,
For a long and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain.
Devils On Horseback
1 box of pitted whole dates, about 40
1 medium block parmesan cheese
1 lb. bacon, cut into thirds
with a knife make a slit in the side of each date. Cut piece of cheese large enough to fit inside the slit (it can protrude slightly). Wrap bacon slice around stuffed date and secure with toothpick.Repeat with remaining dates.
COOK stuffed dates under a broiler turning once about 3 to 5 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
This giveaway is for a gruesome, punk, zombie doll. I don't have a picture of him since he is a deadly one...I keep him in his own suitcase under my bed. He is in there with body parts....severed fingers, brains, a kidney...so when YOU win him, I will toss in an organ, or two and send him YOUR way.....Beware...
(just so you know, his face glows in the dark, it has freaked me out more than once!!!)
Let me know what scares you and a way I can contact you if this zombie shambles your way....Merry Creepmas
Drawing for Horror doll is tomarrow!!!
CREEPMAS!!!! Here is a copy of my Halloween show on baconrock.com (The most awesome online radio station EVER) give it a listen:)
Welcome to the Dark Domain. I am your hostess Daphne and I've wormed my way out of my body bag in the Bacon Cave to drizzle a little bloody flavor on....things. So pull up your cauldron and catch a whiff of Horror. Get out your parchment and ink and write down these suggestions to spice up your Halloween like never before. Tired of following the beaten path of Horror movies? I have Picked My Brains just for you. Let's start with black and white movies, your imagination will love you 1) Carnival Of Souls (1962), A surreal, haunting,effective Horror film shot in Lawrence Ks./Salt Lake City Utah 2) Spider Baby (1968) A dark,well acted film that includes Lon Chaney Jr. and Sid Haig, Cannibalism anyone?
What is creepier than, Deranged fantasy VS Cold reality? I suggest Lucky Mckees films 1) May (2002)
2) Roman (2006)
For a night filled with sheer terror try on some Cronenberg's fare for size (1977) 1) Rabid- starring Marilyn Chambers. She develops an insatible desire for blood, searches out victims and infects them which swiftly drives them insane and equally bloodthirsty! 2) The Brood (1979) starring Oliver Reed and Samantha Eggar
A masterpiece of psychological Horror. About how misdirected rage can literally take on a life of its own.
My favorite Horror sub genre is ZOMBIES and what film could satisfy a gore-tooth? J.R. Bookwalters The Dead Next Door (1989) Independent filmaking at its bloody finest. Are you in the mood for crazy alien action? Jake West's Evil Aliens (2005) will have you twitching and laughing at the same time. 2) Altered
from the writer-director of the Blair Witch Project comes the shocking story of four men determined to exact revenge against the savage alien life form that held them prisoner and killed their friend.
Do you need a film that includes creepy cemataries , flying spheres, and the Tall Man? Phantasm is the film for you (1979)
My personal favorite for "Slasher, Killer-in-a-mask movie" is Laid To Rest (2009) Being pursued by Chromeskull will give you nightmares forever. From Ghosts and Ghouls to infection and zombies, aliens, otherworldly creatures and slasher/killers here's the list again
1) Carnaval Of Souls (1962)
2) Spider Baby (1968)
3) May (2002)
4) Roman (2006)
5) Rabid (1977)
6) The Brood (1979)
7) The Dead Next Door (1989)
8) Evil Aliens (2005)
9) Altered (2006)
10) Phantasm (1979)
11) Laid To Rest (2009)
