Etsy Massacre's Shop of the month for May - AGhoulsBestFriend

Our Team's Shop of the month for May is no other then our wonderful member and Facebook team promoter AGhoulsBestFriend!!!!

1.What is your favorite horror movie related item in your shop at this very moment and why?
My favorite horror movie related item in my shop is The Tingler necklace I made. I had heard of the film ages, but never felt the need to watch it until my absolute favorite director, John Waters, raved about it in his one man show, This Filthy World. He would talk about the experience of seeing the film live and how there were "buzzers" placed under the seats of moviegoers that went off during climactic moments. John Waters is going to be on the cover of May's issue of Rue Morgue with a "tingler" wrapped around his shoulders! 

2.What is it about horror movies that inspires you and your art??
I like to pride myself on making items that are "sweet and twisted". When I am making a hair clip out of a lovely rose I want a black rose. and as if that is not enough, I feel like an eyeball should be thrown in the center. The rose is probably my most favorite symbol in horror movies, next to bats and skulls of course. Roses are seen all over films, especially horror films. Think about all of the times you have watched a horror movie that had a funeral scene and people were leaving roses at the newly filled grave. There are many colored roses and each color has it's own meaning. Sometimes the darkest red roses are called 'black roses' and while they do symbolize the death of an idea or say farewell, they are also considered a positive message of rebirth and new beginnings.

3. Why did you join the Etsy Massacre Team?
I joined the Etsy Massacre Team because I wanted to be able to talk and share with others trying to be successful with their alternative art. So many times you will find teams on Etsy that are devoted to art, knitting, plushies, and jewelry making, but you hardly find an active team promoting those that are inspired by anything remotely macabre. I have been very pleased with the diversity of the team members and how eager people are in helping to promote one another!
