Halloween Thrifting 2018: Part 1, October DI Haul

From my most recent DI trip this week!

These 3 came home with me, or rather came to my work cube.

 Cool vintage plastic Jacko!

Vintage Beanie Baby Pumkin'!  Now he can hang out with the Sheets I found earlier this summer! 

Date of birth: October 31, 1998
Ghosts and goblins are out tonight
Witches try hard to cause fright
This little pumpkin is very sweet
He only wants to trick or treat!

And now this ghost can sing his spooky, annoying song while I work!

Total cost: $1.75

The following rejects were left behind, but captured forever for your viewing displeasure:

 Pray for him Kitty!

 Sugar Loaf brand Jacko

A truly frightful sight!

#drawlloween becomes #miniween2018

I have fallen prey to the ease and laziness of Instagram this year.  #miniween2018 follows the prompts of #drawlloween each year, put together by @minifiguremilitia.  The idea is to take a picture for the 31 days of Halloween, based on the prompts.  So far I have taken 18 pictures for #miniween2018.  Feel free to join in on the fun if you are on Instagram.

I hope to return to the ol' blog soon to post about some recent Halloween thrift finds, so stay tuned, IF YOU DARE! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  Follow all my Halloweeny junk on Instagram #halloweenathon2018.

Have you purchased any Super 7 Halloween stuff?  What do you think?

Funko Horror Themed Cereal

While I was watching the Netflix documentary, Making Fun: The Story of Funko, I discovered that Funko is releasing several horror themed cereals in Summer 2018! (Not yet released at the time this post was written)

Funko is working on the following themed cereals, to include a mini-Pop figures in each box, for just $7.99!

Freddy Funko
Elvira, Mistress of The Dark
Freddy Krueger
Captain Caveman
Friday The 13th
Harley Quin
and MORE!

Becker said "When you add milk to the Freddy Kruger cereal, it looks blood red.  With the Beetlejuice cereal, when you add milk it looks like slime."

Did you buy some Funko cereal, or do you plan to?  What do you think?  Did you open the box, or leave it sealed?

Ice Scream Halloween Pail

Haunted Raisin Ice Cream (From Invader Zim episode: Mortos der Soulstealer)
Every year I am puzzled that no ones has ever created Halloween themed ice cream.  Why has no one done this yet!?  Is it because no on thinks of ice cream when they think Halloween?  Am I just ice cream obsessed?

Recently a great idea popped into my head, the perfect food product idea.  Ice "Scream" packed in a Halloween themed bucket/pail.  Once you finish the cookie and "scream" flavored ice cream, the plastic Ghost/Pumpkin/Monster bucket can be used for trick or treating.  Ingenious! I need to make this happen!

Would you buy Halloween themed ice cream?  If not for the ice cream, would you buy it just to collect the Halloween buckets?
