Citipati, Lord of the Cemetery, is a Tibetan Buddhist figure which loosely represents intertwined male and female skeletons. These two androgynous figures which together form Citipati are considered to be guardians of cemeteries and are honored by semiannual ritualistic dances. As Citipati is comprised of the two halves of the human body, man and woman, the figure is also said to symbolize the counterparts of the human life cyle, birth and Death.
Most people know about Zombie Walks by now, popular parades of people dressed as the living dead that have cropped up all over. I’ve been to a local one a couple times, people get pretty creative with their zombie costumes, and it’s fun. Especially if you’re into zombies.
I am not particularly into zombies, and with their heavy presence in the media I’m pretty well bored of the living dead.
So I started wondering if anyone has tried a Monster/Creature Walk? Same deal as a Zombie Walk, but with horror monsters other than zombies. Demons, werewolves, sea monsters, nuclear mutants, hideous, horrifying, and terrifyingly awesome monsters from the rest of the horror realm.
I would be more into a Monster Walk. I stopped doing the Zombie Walk because I got tired of trying to think of a different way to do the zombie look, and I just don’t have it in me to dress up as the same zombie every time. Personally, it’s stifling to be stuck in the same costume time and again. I like to be able to change and do something new.
Maybe I’ll talk with the group that puts on the Zombie Walk locally, see if they’d be interested in a Monster Walk, or something like a Horror Parade. A Horror Monster Parade would probably be best. The zombie fans can still be zombies, and the people who want to be something else can be their own horrific creature.
Skullis makes amazing things, you should totally check them out.
Happy #WerewolfWednesday! First up: Benicio Del Toro in “The Wolfman” (2010). Amazing work by Rick Baker of course.
There was quite of bit of complaining about him being more man than wolf, usually with a ‘not a real werewolf’ mindset.
There are many interpretations of man/wolf beasts in fiction, and it would be dishonest for Universal to wildly change the Wolfman’s appearance in the remake. Rick Baker did a fantastic job re-imagining the original look.
My apologies for having a dead blog.
Winter has me in a funk and I just can’t seem to get my heart into any projects.
A traditional hunter’s trophy called “charivari,” the silver ornaments worn with lederhosen in southern Germany and Austria.
Made with a silver standard no longer used in Germany, so most likely dates to the first half of 20th century or earlier. Made of real marten (wild weasel) jaw in fine silver 835 mount.
The perfect nightlight for any villain.
This is awesome.
