Etsy Massacre Shop of the Month for October 2012 - LttleShopOfHorrors

October is a VERY special month for the Etsy Massacre Team and what better shop to feature this month then LttleShopOfHorrors who supplies "accessories for the alternative chick"

What is your favorite horror movie related item in your shop at this very moment and why?
My favorite horror related item in my shop at the moment is my Frankenlover bracelet. I am obsessed with Frankenstein and his Bride! 

What is it about horror movies that inspires you and your art?
I absolutely love horrors movies, classic, modern, even the cheesy b movies! I'm inspired by the fact that they portray the darkness & morbidness around us, rather than portraying everything as sunshine & lollipops. I've always been drawn to things that are dark, unknown & just plain horrifying!

Why did you join the Etsy Massacre Team?  
I joined the Etsy Massacre Team because I was invited by our Creepy Captain. It wasn't a hard decision, considering this team is inspired by everything I love! It's awesome to have a group of people who can share similar loves without being looked down upon! I am greatful for the invite that led me to join this deliciously "evil" group of people!

My Kind of Ghoul

On this day, September 17th, in 1951 a gal was born who would change the way people enjoyed B Grade horror films. This gal I am talking about is Cassandra Peterson who is the one and only Elvira, Mistress of the Dark! This Kansas native grew up to accomplish many amazing things her in life time thus far. She is the youngest person to perform as a Las Vegas Show Girl (she was 17, before you get your mind in the gutter), she has traveled the world, starred in films, had a music career, had her own television program, and has even had her own reality show!

Since the 80's, Cassandra has embodied this character of a strong woman who speaks her mind and takes crap from no one! She is one kitschy lady with a fondness for the dark side of life and doesn't let others keep her down. Elvira shakes things up, stands her ground, and looks  frightfully fierce doing it! Cassandra created a character that I will always adore and hold close to my heart.

From one Ghoul to another, Happy Birthday, Cassandra!
