Happy Halloweegs!

Yes, weegs... err, wigs... wah-wahhhh, sorry. Okay, this sexy public service announcement post is to give fair warning to those of you planning your sexy Halloween costume this year without the proper sexy head dressing accessory. Yes, I'm talking to you, Sexy Leatherface! You! Sexy 70's Go-Go Dancer! You! Sexy Nascar Pit Crew Member! You! Sexy Duck Dynasty Hillbilly! You! Sexy _____ _____ (fill in the blank.) So what the Hell ever your sexy definition is of "sexy", you're still gonna look pretty silly (Sexy Silly?) if your hair isn't as freakin HUGE and sexy awesome as it can be-- and I'll bet my own receding cascade of curls if the sexy possibilities aren't endless! Here are some full-page ads from the back of the October 1971 issue of Secrets magazine (see our last sexy post too for more!) What's the sexy style for you? Lioness? Longette? Shake 'n Curl? London Shag? Hey! You! Sexy Monkey Girl-- I have the perfect sexy look for you in the first scan below! Oo-oo-oo!

Secrets '71

43 years ago this month, the October 1971 issue of Secrets (Vol. LXX, #5) hit stands with another batch of wonderfully lurid, titanically trashy tales of sex, sin, and all the wild 'n wanton debauchery you could ever hope to handle. To be honest, you really don't even have to read the stories, as the titles and photos alone are enough to get a serious amount of crazy, cheap-thrill fulfillment. The back pages are full of titillating ads as well... maybe we'll take a peek at some in the next post!

Bunte Trick or Treat Bag

Found this clear plastic Bunte halloween candy bag at an antique shop in haunted Alton, IL yesterday for $2... excellent colors, and fun witch illustration and lettering. Not sure how old it is but a quick google shows that Bunte was still functioning as a candy maker until being purchased by the American Candy Co. in 1990. Anyone familiar with their sugary holiday treats?

Monster Ads

For my fellow ghoul brothers and sisters, a handful of silly "Monster Ads" from the November 1975 issue of Madhouse #100. Girl gorillas are monsters, right?

Count Dracula Puppet and Bats in the Belfry + Monster Jokes!

A couple more highlights from "Happy Halloween! Things to Make and Do" (see our last post as well.) Now you too can turn your creepy castle into a blood drenched tomb of vampiric terror! This really is a fun little book with cute art, and includes many more spooky things you and your friends can make too: masks, treat bags, cookies, games, etc. --if only the cornball jokes were better!
