If the Brothers Quay did runway, it would look a bit like this.

These would be such brilliant Halloween costumes!

You may have wondered where day 28 went last year. That’s because it morphed into day 18 on the calendar THIS year! Coming to you from their very warped and troubling minds are writer, Bill Wolkoff and artist Adriana Yugovitch.

Also featuring fantastic “Christine/Beat” music composed by Josh Fielstra, this “Choose Your Own Adventure” piece will make you think twice about salvaging forgotten electronic equipment found in the outskirts of town.

Check out Gothtober’s DAY 18 to see what we mean…

You’ve all seen cute puppies licking iphone screens from inside. or kittens.

This has some fairly gruesome looking zombies licking your screen, and you can even send zombiegrams!

Offend someone today!

Admit it: You Like Felt Puppets (DAY 17 Barry Morse)

by on Oct.17, 2011, under Syndicated from the Web

Reposted from The Gothtober Blog | Go to Original Post

Barry Morse, (not to be confused with the Canadian American Actor who died in 2008) is a master of the beautiful, interesting and grotesque. When Barry Morse told me he was making 17 felt puppets, I took pause and thought “This is going to be 10 trillion tons of awesome.” Well, I was right. Peek into the gumdrop-colorsode of color that Barry has prepared for us, it truly is a wonderland of gorgeous Mary-Blair-esqueness… except kinda gay and crazy and put through the moebius strip kaleidoscope that is… well … BARRY. Not that I’d want to do this, but I’m convinced if we popped open Barry’s brain, we’d find butterflies, muscle men, cookies, rainbows, lots of catchy songs, perhaps some disturbing plastic baby arms and much much more.  Mr. Barry of Hollywood holds a cornucopia of wild visuals between his ears twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. We are lucky that he’s been sharing his visions with us every Gothtober.

Lori, Tell Me a Story! DAY 15 with Elephantshoe Productions!

by on Oct.15, 2011, under Syndicated from the Web

Reposted from The Gothtober Blog | Go to Original Post

What makes a good story? It helps if your story is told by Lori Meeker and Grimace Boyer, America’s celebrated artist and writer sweetheart couple living in beautiful Hollywood, California. You might think, from all the stories about Tinseltown, that it is packed with movie stars just walking down Hollywood Boulevard, hobnobbing with everyone that walks by, and you’d be absolutely right. Meeker and Boyer were having a malt (you know, one glass, two striped straws, little puffy hearts above their heads) when they were discovered by a Gothtober Hollywood Agent one haunted neon lit night. They have never looked back, and have been making wonderful spooky treats for us ever since.

This beautifully illustrated yarn is narrated by Lori and Grimace themselves, and is a Halloween classic to be told by the spooky fire while sipping your cocoa. Sit back and relax, press “PLAY” and enter a world with three generations of sassy witches and a village in need of some help.

Lucky 13: Haunted Family Portraits from the Undead

by on Oct.13, 2011, under Syndicated from the Web

Reposted from The Gothtober Blog | Go to Original Post

Equivalent to the sum of six and seven, 13 is Gothtober’s luckiest number, no triskaidekaphobia around these parts!Gothtober would like to send out a very special anniversary to Saida and Eric Staudenmaier who tied the knot some years ago on October 13th. Congratulations, you two! Have fun stormin’ the castle!

Anyway, you should know that ghosts, ghouls, spirits and apparitions of all kinds trust only the Staudenmaiers for professional quality portraits. If you yourself happen to be undead, you should know that there is no better choice than The Staudenmaiers, who will help make your family pictures a special time in your zombie afterlife by finding out what you are truly looking for when it comes to traditional or contemporary photos.
SESSION TIPS
• Please make sure all parties in the family have been well fed before the shoot.
• Bring at least two complete outfits, and it is advised that all limbs be attached for the session.
• Arrive with clean sores and minimal oozing scabs

TESTIMONIAL
“On October 13th, 1983 I turned 347 years old and for my birthday I wanted to have professional pictures taken. I went with the Staudenmaiers, and let me just say, you don’t get that level of service anywhere else. I was a little nervous once we started the shoot, but the staff gave me some brains and a glass of blood and I felt very comfortable right away. I will highly recommend The Staudenmaiers to all my friends and co-workers.”
