There’s just something about simplistic design and minimalist art that can make some things super cool. Case in point? These fine sci-fi and horror posters designed by Hungarian artist Szoki over at Wired.com. He has some Star Wars, Halloween, Lord Of the Rings, etc. Check em out!

thewomanimal modeling her custom clothesIf you are a regular visitor to this site then you’ll know how much we love Fright Rags horror t-shirts. I have spent way too much money on their merch. Being a guy however, something I’ve never thought about is that not many of their shirts are sized for women. They do have some babydoll tees, but not all ladies like wearing those. Plus you women like things “pretty” right? Some boring guys t-shirt just won’t do. Rebecca, otherwise known as “thewomanimal” on Etsy is here to help.

Rebecca takes the awesome shirts from Fright Rags and adds things like lace, hoods, straps and ties. She takes normal boring t-shirts and turns them into customized clothing for women. She’ll take a Pinhead shirt and turn it into a custom dress. Or she’ll take your favorite death metal band tee and turn it into a tank-top.

Here’s what Rebecca said about how she started:

I started cutting up guys’ shirts and modifying them to fit me almost 15 years ago because I was frustrated that none of the bands I liked made shirts for girls. Even if they did, the designs on guys shirts were always so much better, and I hate babydoll t shirts! Several years ago I was on a kick of making hoodies out of long-sleeved shirts that had designs on the arms, and I got so many compliments that I decided to try and sell them, and etsy seemed like the perfect marketplace. Since then, I’ve branched out from hoodies to make all kinds of girly stuff out of heavy metal and horror shirts. A lot of my time on etsy these days is spent doing custom work, which I love! At almost six feet tall, I understand that basic sizes small through extra large don’t cover all body types, and I’m so happy to be able to help girls have an item of clothing that is the perfect fit for them.

Considering she is supplying the t-shirt and the customization, her prices are pretty fair too. She also has no problem doing custom work on shirts provided by her customers. So if you are looking for an excellent gift for yourself or that horror loving lady friend in your life, head on over to Etsy and pick up some of Rebecca’s shirts.

Posted on youtube is 20 minutes of in-game footage of the upcoming zombie game Dead Island. The trailer was awesome and this footage, most likely a beta test version, shows that the game looks like it’s shaping up to be pretty damn cool. The developers have said they are going for realism. You play as normal people, which means less Resident Evil guns blazing and much more melee type weapons and attacks. You have to find food, money and gear. So it’s not for the “run-n-gun” crowd. More for the RPG types. I’m looking forward to playing it.

I ran across this well made short film today. Based from the viral video “Charlie Bit My Finger”, where an infant bites the finger of his older brother, Jeff Chan made that premise into a short horror film. The results are excellent.

Dead Island zombie game coming

I am a big enough zombie fan that I have been contemplating buying an Xbox so I can play Left 4 Dead 2. Now I may not have to. If you follow video games at all (and don’t live in a cave) I’m sure you’ve heard about the upcoming zombie game Dead Island and the controversy around the trailer posted below. People, especially parents, always seem to get their panties in a bunch when anything horrific or violent in video games involves kids. The Dead Island trailer is no exception. It is a great trailer. On an artistic level it pulls all the right strings and has defiently garnered interest in the game (both for and against). If the game is half as good as the trailer, I’ll be picking up a copy and hopefully not have to buy an damn Xbox.

We here at SoCreepy have been Guillermo del Toro fans for a long time. The amount of detail, dedication and fantasy he puts into his work is truly amazing. His ability to be such a visionary with the macabre and the surreal is a huge inspiration for us. His works are as scary and frightening as they are stunningly beautiful.

The New Yorker has an excellent, in-depth interview with the man. He discusses his recent Lovecraft project AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS, his youth, his Frankenstein project and other fun things. It is well worth a read.
