Bindlegrim introduced the 2015 Halloween season with these limited-edition run of the Beasties. Each set contains four characters – witch, black cat, scarecrow, and a devil.
Beasties are authentic diecut-process characters with dual-side front/back printing in deep blacks, oranges, and yellows (with a satin low-gloss surface-quality). The stock is a sturdy 34pt-thick weight, with each diecut character surrounded by a dimensional tissue-paper basket of orange honeycomb, specially re-created for this set to offer smaller spacing and a hole/layer ratio reminiscent of vintage items circa 1920’s-1930’s.
For your holiday display, the characters have a slot within the basket that allows either for Halloween treats or the placement of a small battery operated tealight. The roly-poly can be placed in upright positions (with minimal support), tilted (at a randomly natural angle), or, as I discovered when a wind came thru the window — in spinning motion across the table.
The Beasties are assembled and packaged by-hand by the artist so some variation should be expected. As with any novelty and/or vintage item, especially those made of paper, the advised lighting for this decor is a battery operated tealight. Package will include 8 “witch pins”.
Note this item is a limited run — all characters and corresponding envelope with be signed and numbered in the edition.
