Our new super happy and excited Pendrake, our new greeter, who is a good-- Er-- monk-- uhh... doglike--- uhhh... creature! He's a great creature! Seen here hanging out with #scottfoster Olmec head, whose name happens to be Mr. Tumultuous Bicuspid Expedition, FYI.
Some new Insectatarian members in front of an awesome sculpt by Mr. B. We've got a few hand made ones, by CB himself. Object size maybe exaggerated for effect.
Thanks to all who entered our Cosplay contest for two tickets to Wizard World next weekend here in PDX. Here's all the entrants, but ultimately we picked Pennywise and Hong Kong Phooey, but everyone did so great, so more contests to come!!!! And anyone can still get %20 off the Con with our coupon on FB. Why promote these guys? They're our type of folks, and it's not their fault that the Con center charges a fortune for any Con that comes thru, so go get your freak on!
Here we go! We're helping out our pals at Wizard World Comic Con, and are giving away TWO FREE PASSES to the Con!!! Two winners, one each. Anyone can enter, including anyone who has won from us before with us! We are the sole judges, jury and executioners and our decisions are final! All art must be submitted on our Facebook page, Peculiarium or Freakybutttrue.
YOUR challenge: Show us, your best/worst Cosplay costume, real, imagined, photoshopped, whatevs, attach a CLEAN non mean, non hater photo, drawing, video, etc with a post, and we'll select two winners! You got two days! Limit 3 images per person, Kids, you gotta get your folks permission, etc. Blah blah blah, normal legal junk. 48 hours, GO!!! As always, clever, snarky, stupid usually wins the DAY! Why are you still reading? The clock is running!!!! GOOOO!
This lovely fellow, a merman, who we'll call Derek, is straight from Colin B in the UK, and goes straight into the collection... once it clears customs...
Always lovely to see new art from Mr. Batty in the UK. Like this lovely set of water colors of a happy Vampire family and hand painted on illustration board. Colin, also not thrilled with the selection of Creepy frames, also made these frames out of some super secret Paper Mache! Truly Unique! Want to buy it? You should. $150 not yet on our site, but send an email.
What a crazy, wonderful surprise we had, as we hosted an impromptu, private tour for Katy Perry and Carly Rey Jepsen and their dance company at the Peculiarium. Bug Sundaes were on tap, and Katy bought a display right off the wall about none other than Tanya Harding! Couldn't have been nicer and more fun, ya'l come back, now, ya' hear!
And having fun with our green screen!
