I went to a thrift store the other day and really wanted to buy all the cheap, hideous halloween themed items they had.

I will... now that I have a mission.

So $10-$20 is £6.40-£12.80. See you in a few days!

10-20 bucks are abour 130-260 pesos. Which I don't have -sucks to finish college but not have a job.

But if I had them, I know exactly where in Mexico City you could buy all kins of Halloween Knicknacks -even old stuff, like the Blinky Glow Lite Skull- for dirt cheap prices.

And the liquid soap not glowing in the dark was a big let down. I'm pretty sure it is a feasable thing, albeit a non very cleaning solution.

I'll see what I can dig up. One of my local super markets really gets into the season.

Oh man, this is great. Just earlier this week I was at a little community silent auction, and they had a Halloween "mystery bag" (it was one of those garbage bags to see with a jack o lantern face on them.) 12.50 was the current bid, but damnit I wanted the mystery bag! I kept on bidding and by the end of the day I was the bags proud owner (as well as 16bucks poorer) the contents of the bag however more than made up for it.


I've seen these go for a buck in dollar stores, but i still like this little guy. He gives off sort of a "frozen in carbonite" vibe, and thatís good enough for me.


Again seen these in dollar stores. At this point I as feeling ripped off, but candy is candy, and I dig the packaging.


Now this was worth every penny I paid. This mask is big, beautiful, and doesnít have that overpowered plastic smell, so many other masks have.


And here we get a little sneak peek into dragon face's private life. Nothing he likes more than sitting down and watching horror movies with a big bucket of eyeballs.

You can get one of the Jack-o-lantern "glow lites" on ebay pretty damn cheap!

Nick Oct 9th, 2010 06:12 AM

Those look like some mighty fine purchases, Rog. :)

Copper Oct 9th, 2010 08:37 AM

Blood - Love how you managed to make the dragon mask look like "Why are you in my house? Go away before I eat you."

The Leader Oct 9th, 2010 11:26 AM

Blood Panther, is dragon face your fursona?

BurntToShreds Oct 9th, 2010 06:04 PM

I was going to ask the same thing, Leader.

Also, the best thing ever would to go out trick-or-treating with the dragon head and claws, dressed in a Snuggie.

Blinky light actually looks kind of like Death's Head Terror. They may be long-lost cousins.

And as for the glow soap, I actually have glowing soap. A friend of mine bought me some glow in the dark bubble bath from a 'fun' party a year or so ago, and it actually works, although it looks much cooler in blacklight.

Shadowdancer21b Oct 10th, 2010 02:03 AM

I dig the smoking jacket Blood-Panther.

dextire Oct 12th, 2010 06:17 PM

My grandparents have the Jack-O-Lantern Glow Lite, and I think it's equally as cool as the skull one. I'll have to go out tonight and see what cheap halloweeny stuff I can find.

Blood Panther: Did the gloves come with the mask, or did you already have them?

blood_panther Oct 12th, 2010 07:11 PM

I already owned the gloves. got them a few years back. they're kind of skeletonish, but the color seems to match the mask perfectly.

The Doctor Oct 13th, 2010 08:52 PM

Here are a few of my many purchases this evening.

What's for dinner?



Mmmm frozen brains....




And for Dessert?



That's right a Box of Boogers, the meal is completed with hot sauce, not spooky but I love hot sauce on everything.

I also thought this was kinda neat and cheap, skull on a pillow



Cheers all!

Shadowdancer21b Oct 14th, 2010 01:58 PM

I dig the skull on a pillow.

I couldnt in all fairness leave the store without it, like it called out to me.

dextire Oct 19th, 2010 09:06 PM

So it turns out I'm allergic to epoxy paint and have been out of commission for about a week now.
But since I've already bought the Halloween stuff I'll go ahead and post it. :halloween2


This thing is actually a candle but I can't imagine ever melting down this kind of detail.


A fairly nice and brightly colored haunted house. When you push the lantern the eyes flash and a voice says "Come in... if you dare!".


I normally wouldn't buy something this sparkly, but that has to be the happiest Jack-O-Lantern I've ever seen. The light actually flickers too. Definitely worth the 2 bucks.


I have no idea what this is, aside from the Mummy with a mummified baseball bat. It was just sitting on the store shelf exactly like that, no package, no sticker.
The clerk just threw up her hands and sold it to me for a dollar. :)


This pushed me over the $10 dollar limit, but for $4 I think it was worth it. My best guess is it's supposed to be a haunted cave of some sort.
Skulls, a mummy, spiders, ghosts, treasure, this thing has got them all. But it's the inside that got me to buy it.


A scary old woman! Or maybe it's supposed to be Dracula? I don't know, but I had to own it.
It's a little hard to tell but the whole thing lights up real nice too.


The back of it is even done nicely as well. With the cave moss and the old lady/Dracula sticking out the back.

Not a bad collection of stuff for $14, eh? It was a ton of fun digging through the discount bin and searching the dark corners for the cheapest stuff I could find. :)


Pleasant dreams people. :halloween2

Shadowdancer21b Oct 19th, 2010 10:29 PM

I like the candle and the cave the most. That's totally Dracula by the way.

blood_panther Oct 20th, 2010 02:17 AM

I dunno from the back he looked like harry potter.

Ex Leper Oct 22nd, 2010 06:39 PM

This is the best I could do.

blood_panther Oct 22nd, 2010 10:41 PM

wow thats awesome!


...I meant the stay puffed marshmallow man. the grim paper weight's kind of cool too.

Ex Leper Oct 23rd, 2010 09:33 AM

The Stay Puffed is one of the best toys I have so far since I re-started my toy collection It's suppose to be a bank but I think it's too cool for that purpose.

Mockery Oct 23rd, 2010 01:15 PM

Good stuff so far!

For the record, it's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Last time somebody called him "Puffed", he destroyed several city blocks in New York. :(
