Trickery & Treats

I’m the master of fright , and a demon of light
And I’ll scare you right out of your pants
To a guy in Kentucky I’m Mister Unlucky
And I’m known throughout England and France

Meet Jack... as in "You don't know Jack" - he's a modified Tony the Toy Box Monster from the Big Book of Knitted Monsters by Rebecca Danger.

This angry looking fella was knit for fellow Raveler Jessica aka SameOldKnit to help with all her Halloween trick-or-treaters.

I wanted to create a Tim Burton-esque monster and looked to Nightmare Before Christmas for inspiration. To me he's adorable, but from the comments I got on Flickr & Raverly.. popular opinion is that he looks scary & mean?!

I dunno... cute scary and cute mean, if there is such a thing.

Halloween came and went. The kids hit the neighborhood hard and had full pillowcases of candy to show for their efforts!

And imagine my delight when I spotted Elvis passing out candy. He's lucky there was a line of trick-or-treaters behind me or I would have asked to take another photo sitting on his lap! ;P
Check out this awesomeness!!!

He even gave me the lip snarl BOOYAH!

AAAAAAAHHH!! HAHAHA! This dude....this dude is great. And I agree with both the cute...and the mean. I think there must be a word for it. And if there isn't, there should be.

I showed the picture of Jack to my 13 yr old nephew and posed the question, " cute or mean?" ... He says "cute"!
