Unintentional Zombie-ish Picture

leave a comment »

I know that this is my first post in a while and it will be brief, but I’m sharing this pic with you on here in anticipation of The Walking Dead premiere on AMC later tonight. While this picture is not necessarily one of a zombie, the effect of the poor printing makes this otherwise mundane advertisement a little off-putting and produces a scary looking normal lady. I hope you enjoy.

Creepy Things from Thrift Stores #2

with 2 comments

I’ve been out and about looking at local thrift stores in my area, and I think that I’ve found some things that are a little creepier than anything that was in my last installment of Creepy Things from Thrift Stores. I hope that you’ve braced yourselves and prepared for what is here. The goods today come from a Thrift Mart that is very close to my apartment… needless to say, there was some pretty interesting things there.

The first item is one that I would call a disproportionate angel statue. While it has a body that looks minuscule, its face and head are large giving it an odd and creepy looking overall appearance. It’s a little disconcerting…

The second item or rather items that I found which were just across the way from the first little gem. They were two doll-like depictions of old men… While this is creepy enough as is, the fact that they look like young boys dressed up as old men makes them all the more creepier… yeah…

The third item probably takes the cake of all of the others. Matter-of-factly, I almost overlooked this item while I was browsing the shelves of this particular store. While I’m usually a fan of painted masks / Mardi Gras masks, this one is quite different from anything that I’ve ever seen. . .it’s a little odd to say the least. I made me feel unsettled a bit to be looking at it.

So there you have it. Another edition of the Creepy Things from Thrift Stores. I hope that you haven’t been too disturbed… and who knows? Maybe someone will take pity upon these items and take them home with them.

Creepy Things From Thrift Stores #1

with 2 comments

One thing that you might not know about me is that I am an avid thrift store shopper. When I look at Goodwill, Community Thrift stores, etc., I not only look for furniture that I can refurbish or other cool stuff, but additionally, I look for the creepy shit that lines the shelves. The things that look like they might be from horror movies or have the potential to haunt your nightmares. Today, I found two such things.

I can’t really decide what this is. It kind of looks like a monk at prayer. However, I must question why someone in rural Middle Tennessee would need something like this. I don’t know… I find it off-putting.

Creepy ass monkey coconut… I don’t know that i have to go into this too much. However, I usually like the carved coconuts… This one looks like it’s seen better days, but it is also super crude. As a result of this crudeness, it’s quite scary.
