Dark Bunny Tees

From the site: Established in October 2009 and born from a love affair with film and illustration, Dark Bunny Tees started off as just one man, me, Alex Chenery. However, after five fantastic years Dark Bunny Tees has grown into a small, but perfectly formed team of three, with Matt our customer service manager and Tim, who runs our in-house print shop.

I have always loved movies. I have always loved t-shirts. Essentially the main aim of Dark Bunny Tees was to create movie t-shirt designs that were more than just a corporate logo for the movie in question. Anyone can do that in my opinion. What I wanted to do was create movie t-shirt designs that were something new. My own spin on classic movies, but still incorporating those Easter eggs and subtle references that purist fans of that movie will understand. I also wanted to create designs that just looked cool, even if you had no idea that it referenced a movie and designs that instantly says ‘Dark Bunny Tees’. UK based but ships worldwide.

Especially for the Scream Queens:

Nerd Sparkle

Know a woman who loves geek-inspired jewelry? Then you’ll definitely want to check out the Nerd Sparkle shop on Etsy; between their Rocky Horror Picture Show Sparkle Lips Necklace, their Silence of the Lambs inspired Death Moth Bracelet or even their Captain America Bracelet, you’ll undoubtedly find a great gift at Nerd Sparkle perfect for the lady in your life.

Music & Art:

Popsic Art

From the site: 3D pop art gifts for men and women by Joshua Zaitz. I create 3D Pop Art featuring vibrant colors, fun themes, and a fresh look at some of the most beloved icons we've all grown up with. Each piece of art offers viewers a unique 3D experience. Hand-cut pieces are glued layer by layer to the background picture. Since every piece of artwork I create is hand-cut, constructed and embellished differently, collectors of my artwork each receive a unique piece of art.

Take a look at Popsic Art’s adorable Sam from Trick ‘R Treat artwork, this killer Pennywise piece, or even their awesome The Devil’s Rejects and Twilight Zone inspired art.

Games & Collectibles:


Looking for some horror-themed pillows, candles, bath accessories or even some apparel? Then head on over to Frightwares site as they’ve got some wickedly cool items that are sure to add a little fun to your home.

For the Little Ghouls:

The Fright Club

Each year, on Halloween eve, Fright Club meets to go over their plan: Operation Kiddie Scare. Only the scariest of monsters can join Fright Club-Vladimir the Vampire, Fran K. Stein, Sandy Witch, and Virginia Wolf have all made the cut. They've been practicing their ghoulish faces, their scary moves, and their chilling sounds. But when a band of cute little critters comes along asking to join in the fun, the members of Fright Club will find out who really is the scariest of all!


Etsy Spotlight:


Who doesn’t love horror themed cross stitch gifts? I’m a big sucker for anything cross stitch and these great Ghostface, Jason Voorhees and Skull designs from Emfaced would make for the perfect small gift for the horror lover who also has a crafty side.
