Love horror franchises like Friday the 13th? Love Elvira? Love cutesy-wutesy wittle horror toys? Maybe trying to coerce your girlfriend to give horror movies a chance? Funko has just the thing!
Here’s an Elvira Rock Candy doll:
Don’t like Elvira? How about an ickle Stripe, Carrie, Pinhead, Jason, Beetlejuice, Pennywise, Michael Myers, Chucky, Freddy, Cthulu or Krampus?
Now some of the expressions are a bit off. Pinhead’s grin is just out of character. Michael Myers has a lot of frowning going on for someone in a mask. Carrie looks midly affronted. And what’s going on with Jason’s face? Not to mention Beetlejuice looks a lot like the Joker and Elvira’s boobs are still too small. But look at frowny little Cthulu, I wuv hims! And cutie pie Krampus!
Okay, calming down now. I’m a sucker for adorable Cthulu stuff. Hey, even if you hate them, you gotta admit it’s cool they’re being marketed as horror “heroes.”
