I’ve been assembling all sorts of seasonal stuff for a fun (if less coherent than my first Halloween post) All Hallow’s Eve post.
And I do mean all sorts. Like, even candy containers.

Instead there was one little box of the pink ones. (You know, the little boxes you get in the ten zillion pounds of candy to hand out to Trick-or-Treaters bags.) Fortunately, I wanted the Dracula tin, not the candy, so it didn’t matter. 😛
I’ve got seasonal pins, too.
This was my whole Studio Ghibli fanart pin collection when I took the photo; there’s two more kodama-themed pins now. 😛 (And more of various sorts on the way. I really need to stop backing so many enamel pin Kickstarters…) Anyway, as you can see, the set on the right is a Halloween-themed set. 🙂
Though those are obviously Clawdeen and Frankie, the seller (on Storenvy, I think it was) didn’t identify them as such, for obvious reasons. I had to get that magpie pin because of some books I read over the course of this year. 😀
Isn’t that little witch the cutest? (The crabby Jack-o-lantern is related to the various crabby fruit plushies I posted about some time ago.)
But pins aren’t what you’re here to see, so here’s more fitting photos. 🙂
Earlier this month, I decided to go (for the first time ever) to Build-a-Bear, because I’d seen how cue their bears were after they donated some to an event at work. And of course they had some seasonal products available, including a very cute Dracula bear, and this bat. I couldn’t resist the batbear. 😀 Given that she has BAB written very prominently on her paw, I’ve decided to name her Babs.
Ironically, when I got home that day, guess what I found in a package on my porch? Continue reading
