This black cat candy-basket is surrounded by sugar candycorns and pumpkins next to a package of Bindlegrim's Halloween Beasties.

Having a fun photoshoot (of aritst proofs) with sticky claws, the smell of sugar, as the tissue and crepe paper whispers in the  ever so slight chill of the September morning air. With photos now done for the store... later today will be the official arrival of the Bindlegrim's 2015 Beasties on the Bindlegoods Shoppe: 

What makes a Beastie? These roly-polys use a orange tissue-paper honeycomb re-created to have the smaller spacing and layer count of vintage items circa 1920-1930. The characters have a slot within the basket that allows for Halloween treats or placement of a small battery operated tealight.  Authentically diecut characters are dual-side printed (in a limited-edition run) in rich color of blacks, oranges, and yellows on a thick 34pt matte stock. (with an almost waxy surface) They can be placed in upright positions (with minimal support), tilted (at their randomly natural angle), or as I discovered when a wind came thru the window - in spinning motion across the table.

Tissue-paper limited-edition Halloween art products offer four characters - witch, black cat, bogle, and devil - in a full set.

Black Cat, Devil, Scarecrow, and Witch with orange honeycomb bases on a background of green crepe paper for holiday displays.

Display of orange honeycomb tissue-paper characters for vintage-style holidays - witch, scarecrow, devil, and black cat.

As night falls, I do hope to get some better photos of their lighting potential. Here are couple of earlier photos using battery-operated tealights...

Using battery-operated tealights, the Beasties (witch, scarecrow, devil, and black cat) are shown here lighting up an old crate in the dark.

Set at random angles, the Beasties hold little lights in the dark. (Limited edition holiday art by Bindlegrim).
