HDH Minions Reunion, The Evil Returns

The Haunted Design House Minions (most of us, anyway) are back for a little reunion.  We've opened the dungeon doors for a little fresh(?) air and to refresh our fondness for the dark and weird.  And hell, we just missed each other and YOU, our faithful followers.   So here we go with a little creepiness to let you know the Evil will ALWAYS return.

Gotta say I'm a little off my game, but I stumbled (literally) upon some of my new(ish) (and virgin) Tim Holtz dies from last Halloween and chose Dracula.  I had a bit of fun with the textures, using iridescent CS for his face, shiny black CS for his (slicked back) 'do, velvet for is cape and matte metallic (which I thought resembled satin) for the lining.  Of course none of this shows in the pic, so you'll have to take my word for it. 

Where else should he be, but on a coffin and here you can see a bit of the dimension.  Couldn't resist adding some googly eyes and a die cut from the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge.  Hey, my original Minion name was Creepy Cricut Cween, so I'm just channeling my roots.  Love how the die gave him a fancier collar and fab pointy ears, don't you?

So I'm hoping you all are inspired to revisit your dark side, especially when you see the gloriously dark and decrepit makes from the rest of the Minions HERE. Happy Macrabre Monday.   And as our Cadaverous Concoctor of Chaos always says, "Keep it creepy".  xxx

I'm entering this in Dream in Darkness ATG, Dark 'n' Daring ATG, Left of Center using the LOC theme, DL.Art May Linky Challenge, and the Dark Attic ATG.


  1. I only found one typo. Not too bad for a soused author. Better than I'd do that's for sure. AWESOME Drac make! He looks super cool and I bet super silly when those eyes get to movin'. So inventive and fun. Wish the pics would show all the thought that went into the paper choices, but I will always take your word for it. I have no doubt that you make this dude sparkle and shine in the best ways possible. Feels good to be back in the dungeon for a bit, doesn't it?

  2. This is just brilliant. Super cool that you attached him to a coffin. Love it. xx
