Beauty and Her Beasts

Scheduling and Internet outages have kept me from posting pics from the signing event over the weekend, but power outages and icy roads have left me with a day off today, so I’ll have something up later today. In the meantime, I’ve got two pics from when I got home.

Most dads bring gifts home to their kids after a trip. Usually it’s a t-shirt or a toy of some kind, or some souvenir from where they visited. Me? I brought home Freddy, Jason and Leatherface.

Serial killers, zombies and boogeymen! WOOHOO!!

The Little Bird actually got a cool purse with a print featuring skeletons getting married, but she enjoyed the toys the same as her brothers did. The three figures are the same size as the boys’ Marvel Super Hero Squad figures, so I thought they’d make good bad guys. However, Little Bird figured out they match the size of some of her toys…

You go, Leatherface! The Wife couldn’t figure out why I was laughing so hard, but then again, she hasn’t seen Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

The next day, however, I questioned who came out on top of that little dance.

May I cut in?

Oh, Belle. You dirty, dirty girl. Do your masters in Mouseland know about your secret lust for bad boys?

  1. Where did you get those figures? They’re very cute for slasher movie monsters.

    Your daughter is adorable.

      I got them at Dark Delicacies while I was out there. Unfortunately I ditched the packaging to make it easier to pack them in my carry-on, so I can’t tell you who made them. Del also had 6″ figures that were a little more realistic looking. He only had Freddy, Jason and Leatherface in stock or I’d have bought more!

    This was not AT ALL what I expected from the title of the post.
