With just one more week to Halloween, its time to show you what I've been up to for this years party. Today's reveal is all about the Halloween invitations ( if you are new to the blog, check out last year's carnival freakshow invite or the prior years creature survival kit)
As you might have guessed already from those sneak peeks, this years concept was a creepy abandoned asylum for the criminally insane. So spooky its oft used in Halloween movies (Pennywise from Stephen King's IT, Michael Myers, etc, Nightmare on Elm Street, etc.) I gave it my own little twist by relocating it right in my front yard. But on that in tomorrows post.
Today is all about the mailing. Just some simple amber bottles with a taste of what is to come.
The front is a faux apothocary label and the back label reads:
When the voices in your head
threaten to overtake,
commit to confinement
for society's sake.
When the ghosts in your mind
become too much to bear,
we'll sedate and subdue
with the greatest of care.
We'll listen and treat
whatever your claim,
before we label you
Your admittal is confirmed
on October thirty one,
processing starts at four
at Kings County Asylum.
For those who like to know the details:
-Labels designed and printed by me
-Bottles were purchased at SKS
-Skull and crossbones stamp by besotted brand.
More on the decor in tomorrow's post. Stay tuned.
