All by myself

All by myself
Don't wanna be, all by myself anymore...

Just spinning a little Eric Carmen for you all in Ghoulie Land. That song reminds me of being in the roller skating rink. Suddenly the lights dim down and a deep voice comes over the PA to announce it's couple's skate. And so they pair off - holding hands, skating circles in their bell bottom pants, blushing and making small talk. Pity the ghoul with no partner. ::sigh::

Well, I've successfully dated myself again. you have just this one and only Ghoulie Girl. Sitting here. All by myself.

God I need a beer!

So, let's see...what is the topic of the moment? Ah, yes...being alone. The house is empty and I'm sitting here perusing the internet searching for something strange and unusual. [Quote Lydia Deetz "I, myself, am strange and unusual"].

With too many results I narrowed down my quest to zombies. After all, they are the latest and greatest in the horror genre. (I'm having The Walking Dead withdrawals as we speak. Fall cannot come soon enough!)

So what did I find?
I'm so glad you asked!

These have been on my Must Have list for several months now.

By Iron Fist, Zombie Stomper peep toe pumps. I'm in love! I can't say for sure but I'd bet that in the case of an actual zombie attack you could use these as a weapon.

I haven't decided to go with the green or limited edition glow in the dark. Suggestions???

Here's another item I had on my possible purchase list last season:

The Zombie of Montclaire Moors Statue from Design Toscano. Designed by artist Alan Dickinson the site claims "If this doesn't scare your neighbors, nothing will!" I'm not sure about that but I do think it's an excellent static piece with exceptional realism.

And finally, if you haven't already met, allow me to introduce you to Zombie Boy.

Bizarre Magazine interviewed him in 2008. His mission: to cover his outer self with his inner self to present a full size corpse. A real live member of the walking and rotting dead, Rick, hails from Montreal. He claims that "There’s all sorts of weird sh*t here in Montreal, so I kind of blend in with the culture...". Hmmm - makes me kind of nervous to visit our neighbors to the North!

He was most inspired by George A Romero's Living Dead movies. Hey - I love those too but I'm just not this committed. If I were I'm sure the hubby would have me committed.

Zombies have finally come into their own, pushing aside their more famous horror cousins for their time in the spotlight. I guess you could say that they're all the rage (pun intended). But I want to know what you haunters think. Will you be incorporating zombies into your haunt? Is the zombie your costume of choice for the 2011 season? Are zombies here to stay or will they fall by the wayside in a pile of decay?

Haunt on!


  1. Omigosh, don't worry about dating yourself that way, because I am on top of the memory myself. Right after this song, it will change to Super Freak, and let the Speed Skating commence, LOL

    Really glad to be catching up with you, all by yourself and all. :)

  2. Oh my goodness...those pumps are to die for!!!

    I am a new follower of your Blog!

  3. Ha! Super Freak. Ya know, hearing that song today would still make me want to get up and dance.

    I went roller skating with the youngest a couple of years ago and all the adults were just standing around. I got my skates and as I headed out I said to one of the moms "I sure hope I remember how to do this". To which she replied "Going isn't the problem, it's stopping..". Uhhhh yeah, hadn't actually thought of that part. LOL

    Glad I'm not alone in the way back machine ;)

    Welcome Lulu! I know - the pumps are fab! Just can't decide which ones. What to do...what to do???

  4. If you're undecided, get the green ones for you and the limited edition ones for me, and I will courier them to you whenever you want to borrow them.

    I've been drooling over the limited edition ones for some time now ;)

  5. Zombie shoe swapping. I think we could make that work!

    I actually think the green are more fun but the glow are a more practical, go with anything color. Then again, I've never been accused of being practical ;)

  6. Fantastic shoes oh to be young and fancy free!!!Wonderful blog G.G.!!!
