Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.


It's Hallowe'en Time Again!

Ah, it's that time of year again, when bloggers across the globe go Hallowe'en crazy!

I'm a little disappointed, as this year may be the first year I won't be going to a Hallowe'en costume party. For the past 8 years or so, I've been going to an annual party, held at a notorious house just south of Adelaide in South Australia.

Here's my past 6 years' efforts, along with the originals for comparison:

But I've just moved to London, and have only really just found my feet here, as such, I don't have anything planned. I've got ideas in mind, but as we're only 7 days away from the Hallowe'en weekend, I'm not really sure if I'll be able to pull it off. If worse comes to worse, maybe I'll just spend the weekend wearing my costume around the flat.

Regardless, as per tradition, here is my annual Hallowe'en compilation!

This year, I've taken inspiration from the 1996 stinker 'Werewolf'... or if you're an MST3K fan like myself (see above), you may know it better as 'Wharwilf'.
