Nope, This Isn't Scary At All for a Little Kid


As a kid I always thought these were 3D monsters, but if you read the fine print it says it's on "durable polyetheline." It also says it has glow in the dark eyes. Is there any kid in their right mind who wouldn't be terrified when they went to bed and saw lifesize glowing eyes across the room? Geez, I had a Frankenstein model with glow in the dark head and hands that I had to put it in the closet every night. It was so spooky it made my heart pound like a jackhammer.

To hell with Frankenstein's monster, my grandma's glow-in-the-dark picture of Jesus used to scare the Be-jesus out of me!

And what the fink said, you got a nice place here.

I bought that thing. I missed the fine print and was really disappointed to find out it was printed flat on a big piece of plastic. After buying the X-Ray glasses, you'd think I would've known better.

Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, when I was a kid I never realized they were on plastic. And a Glow in the dark Jesus? That's spooky!

Loving the blog, mine friend! Really nice start. The old LP cover stuff, especially, is always killer. Love those! :D

Hey, you're not Chris from Nacogdoches, are you? My buddy who posts to my vintage Halloween and shopping mall blogs? Just curious.

Happy Haunting!

Yeah, it was a painting of Jesus praying with his eyes closed. When you turned out the lights, his eyes opened and glowed in the dark.

I had to turn it to face the wall, otherwise I was too creeped out to fall asleep.

I'm not Chris from Nacogdoches. Glad you like the old LP covers because I've got lots of LPs and 45 picture sleeves. I'll definately be posting more of that.

That glow in the dark Jesus thing just keeps getting creepier and creepier! I wouldn't have wanted to face it, but I sure as heck wouldn't want to turn my back on it either. Too creepy!!
