I had so much fun making my Wizard of Oz POP! Vinyl Diorama a few weeks ago I that decided I would continue creating silly new display boxes if any additional POP! Vinyls should happen to join my rather random toy collection. I didn’t really anticipate buying any new figures so quickly, but I went to Tate’s Comics last week for an art opening in the Bear + Bird Gallery (featuring amazing Lenticular Artwork by Kerry Tichenor) and while I was there I spotted my all time favorite Walking Dead character (books & show), Michonne! And the set even included her two pets. It wasn’t even a question, Michonne was coming home with me. She is like Queen BAMF of my heart.
And so I went about finding the right size shoebox and collecting twigs and sorting through my stash of moss to create a desolate woodland setting for her to conquer with bad-assery. I went with a pretty simplistic layout, mostly because they included so much detail on the vinyls (check out that splatter), I just wanted them to remain the most interesting part of the scene.
Which POP Vinyls! should I get next?
“They Don’t Feel a Thing”
Greetings friends. Nothing like a little last minute holiday shopping to make your spirits bright. But luckily that is why they invented the Internet, where the vast expanses of cyberspace are parted to reveal amazingly cute and discounted gift items that can be shipped overnight. I’ve been diligently crossing off all the names on my holiday gift list but as is the curse of gift shopping, I keep finding really cute things I just want to buy for myself. I haven’t caved in yet, but there will be some post-Christmas splurges–trust. Anyway, so here are a few of my favorite holidays gifts of 2012 that might be perfect for someone on your list, or yourself.
Check out this cute wallet shaped like an envelope from Modcloth. Love the Heart Stamp closure.

Loving the Dapper-ism Bow Tie Section
I am definitely loving a few pieces from the Target + Neiman Marcus Designer Collaboration project that is going on right now, even if many of the items are a bit on the pricey side. However, this Tory Burch Lunch Box is the BEES KNEES, the KNEES I tell you! And it’s only $20.
Lunch with Burch? I’m down.
So I don’t actually have a dog right now, but I am still considering getting this Zombie Foot Dog Toy from ThinkGeek so my cats can stare at it….can I borrow your dog?
Bite Me Before I Bite You
Oooo the cuteness! Yay for the holidays as a fun excuse to buy adorable things for the people who make the rest of your year a little merrier. May your all your Amazon wish lists come to fruition.
So apparently May is Zombie Awareness Month, who knew right? And to celebrate (?) our favorite non-living, flesh-craving, decomposing monster friends, Instructables user Kristylynn84 created amazingly creeptastic brain-shaped truffles. Loves! So raise a glass to zombies for the endless hours of entertainment they have provided through amazing horror films, amazingly horrible horror films, and of course Walking Dead books. Mmmm, brains.
Mmmmmm Brains..IN...Delicious Brains!

I know this is clearly off topic and this post should be elephant mommies snugging their little ones or kittens with hats but this was just too great to pass up, even though it’s cuteness is outmatched by it’s awesomeness.
Return of the Living Red from McClaren Vale Winery
This amazing bottle of booze is Return of the Living Red wine. That’s right friends, zombie wine, and the label is what’s even more impressive. Besides the radness of the dripping red wax, the label itself is actually an envelope with an entire horror story inside with accompanying artwork.
Drunk Storytelling Complete with Illustrations
The design company responsible for this amazingness is MASH so you can blame them for making you crave a wine you’ve never tasted based on ass-kicking marketing. I’m ready to buy, but unfortunately the winery’s website is under construction so we’ll have to wait for the resurrection. Man, this should have been an Easter post.
