A Love Letter For Michael Myers and Halloween

You showed up in our lives in 78′

You were just a small boy up way too late

Your sister was brushing her hair till it gleamed

But your knife was shinier and so was your scheme

You stabbed her and killed her and put on a new mask

Taken away without completing your task

Fore another sister you had who we knew got away

But you finally came back on that one certain day

October 31st, Halloween night you went on a rampage and caused such affright

The residents of Haddonfield soon went running amok

Fleeing away from you without having much luck

You found your sister Laurie, now Strode her last name

And went about on your own killing game

You chased her, and chased her and cornered her you had

But a long came Loomis who shot you so bad

But die you didn’t, you disappeared in the night

Was that the Boogeyman? she asked and Loomis said right

So we welcome you back on this Halloween

Bringing back your sister a true scream queen

You’ve entertained and thrilled us, and caused us to fear

The Boogeyman is real and 2018 the year

All Hallows Eve Poem (2018)

Fall is in the air and Halloween approaches

The nights come sooner and the mornings darken

But the crisp air and the falling leaves seduce and harken

The arrival of the autumnal equinox

 

Ghosts and Spirits are ready to cheer

For the time when the veil is thinnest

Soon will draw near

Witches ready their potions and dust off their brooms

Knowing the witching hour shortly will loom

Over the full moon in the night sky

Bats and crows fly around soaring so high

The wind blows around whistling so loud

The creatures of the night are forming a crowd

Monsters and ghoulies are ready to scare

Hoping the kiddies will come to their lair

Tricks or treats, which ones will they choose

Devilish misdeeds or just simple boo’s

Ready your pumpkins for the time is near

For All Hallows Eve ere long will be here

Horror Fan: A Poem (2018)

Horrorverse, Universe

A Place that I like

I might run into Freddy, Jason, or Mike

Halloween is our Christmas

And frights just delight

Love to be scared on a dark stormy night

Gothic or classic, Paranormal or slasher

Monster or Giallo or just a gore splasher

We love all the terror that horror rouses

We even go out to real haunted houses

Movies or art, music or books

Sometimes can get us some real dirty looks

But love it or hate it

We really don’t care

Cause we are really just looking 

For our next big scare

Kayla Stojek Interview (2018)

This woman is the COOLEST shoe designer in not only the horror world but maybe the whole world. I fell in love with Kaylas designs immediately and I think you will to, so I wanted to do a quick interview with the beautiful lady and show you some of her designs. The featured image above is from the new Halloween collection. They are called the Mortuary and they are the most gorgeous haunted house shoes that actually light up! I want to thank Kayla so much for taking time out of her busy schedule for this and also get you guys the link to her Etsy store

ttps://www.etsy.com/shop/kaylastojek/items?ref=pagination&page=1

So onto my questions:

  1. Kayla, what were your inspirations for the new Halloween collection?  ~I find heavy inspiration through film. 70s horror is my favorite, so I knew I needed to showcase a pair from that decade, that’s where the Carrie came into play. The Mortuary concept has been on my mind for several years. I’m fascinated with old decrepit buildings and cemeteries, so the design came together quickly. The remaining pieces were inspired by my general love for all things Halloween and some feedback from my clients and followers. Since our Wednesday design everyone has been longing for a Morticia.
  2. How do you choose the images for all of your designs?  ~For the most part I create and edit all of the media content for our listings and social media. I don’t have a background in photography, so I tend to just pick the photos that mimic the lighting and background of the vision I have in my mind for each pair. We like to choose gritty, textured, raw places to shoot the shoes.
  3. You used to be in roller derby, how did you get into that and did you enjoy it?  ~My roller derby experience was fairly short-lived. I was injured very early on, but what I remember and loved the most was all of the amazing women I met. I’m still close with a few of them today, and of course those stories are on a need to know basis, haha.
  4. Any new fun clients? I know a lot of celebrities loves your work! ~ALWAYS! Just when I feel like we’ve reached the most innovative client with an extreme request, there’s another waiting for me. One who comes to mind immediately is my client David who does an insane drag Deadpool character. We’re working on some intense “Dragpool” boots for him now.
  5. Do you ever do runway shoes? They would be fantastic! ~Yes! Not as often as I would like, but when I first began making shoes I participated in a show called TLR. It’s a production out of Lubbock, Texas with a ton of talented people involved. Early next year we’ll be in another show in Austin.
  6. Love that you do so many great men’s boots also.  ~Definitely! We receive custom commissions for men’s items often. I knew I wanted to include a pair for the guys in this Halloween collection, and the “Exploited” design fit that vision for me.

     

  7. Do you do other designs besides shoes, boots, and hats? Like toys or jewelry?  ~In the beginning I dabbled in a bit of everything. We have a few long time clients who will add accessories in the mix every now and then. We’re working on a crystal encrusted rosary/crucifix at the moment.
  8. Where do you get your hat inspirations?  ~I love the space that a hat offers for the design, there is so much room to work with. The logistics of walking on the piece isn’t there, so that’s an added bonus. I would love to make an entire series of horror hats based on my favorite films, I think that would draw the most inspiration.
  9. What do you have in store for future designs? ~I have some projects on the back burner that I’m excited to dive into for 2019. One is a collaboration with Hades footwear that we’re really excited about. This Halloween Collection received such a positive response that it will definitely be an annual showcase to look forward to.
  10. What do you want the world to know about you and your absolutely amazing designs?  ~What many don’t know is the time and manpower that makes this business operate. I worked solo for a few years, and now we have a full team of ladies devoting their time. My sisters Kyndra and Brooke, along with a good friend Chellsie work endless hours making sure each piece is as perfect as possible. My husband Zac, who has a separate career, uses what little free time he has to pitch in with extreme projects. I’m eternally grateful to have them with me, and I would like for people to know how much love and hard work is put into every item.
  11. .Any personal mantra?  ~I don’t think I have a formal mantra, but I do believe in putting as much good out into the world as possible. Whether it’s through weird/extreme art or other means, making a contribution is important. Gratitude is everything.

Doctor Orange (2018) Horror Comic

I ran across this in development new horror comic Doctor Orange and it looked so awesome I asked the man in charge Joseph Duis at @heresystudiosll   to tell us a little about it!

DOCTOR ORANGE Psychological Horror Comic on KICKSTARTER

Doctor Orange Will See You Now

What would you do if you knew you had hallucinations but you didn’t know when they were affecting you?

That is the problem of Suhaila, the protagonist of the upcoming self-contained psychological horror comic DOCTOR ORANGE. Living in suburban Mississippi with her wife and dog, Suhaila’s life is isolated but quiet, and her schizophrenia is generally controlled when she takes her medication. But after carving a jack o’lantern for Halloween – one she names Dr. Orange – she begins having dreams that the doctor – who takes on the persona of a psychotherapist – is coming after her. When she awakens, things aren’t as she left them.

Things go downhill from there. In 22 full-color pages in which nothing is a given, she doubts her senses. Viewing events through Suhaila’s eyes, you won’t know whether she’s hallucinating everything – and is, therefore, a threat to herself and others – or whether a jack o’lantern is really out to harm her and her loved ones. And after a while, you’ll begin to doubt your own senses, as well.

There are only four days until Halloween. What will happen when it arrives?

DOCTOR ORANGE (written, created, and lettered by Joseph Duis; line art by Jose Raul Orte Crespo; colors by Maulana Faris; with a cover by Greg Woronchak and Maulana Faris; and published by Heresy Studios, LLC) is available through Kickstarter on August 14th through September 7th at drorangecomic.com. In addition to the standard PDF and print copies, there are several other rewards, such as a deluxe edition, stickers, art prints, a Dr. Orange latex Halloween mask, and even being drawn into the comic as a psychiatric patient. So check it out today!
