“Be careful. What slumbers there… is not human.”

Brooklyn, NY-based artist Katie Freeman of Knitrocious knitted this awesome pair of gloves that look like the terrifying hands belonging to the Pale Man from Guillermo del Toro’s wonderfully haunting 2006 film Pan’s Labyrinth, played by the inimitable Doug Jones.

Freeman made these nightmarish gloves to wear when she attended a live taping of Doug Loves Movies and she has plans to knit an complete Pale Man suit.

Imagine wearing these gloves on the bus or train one morning when all your fellow passengers are still half-asleep on their way to work. Hold up your all-seeing hands to your face and listen to how many people suddenly sit bolt upright and start reaching for the “next stop” button.

Head over to Freeman’s Knitrocious Etsy shop to check out more of her nightmarish creations, including an impressively freaky facehugger:

I’m please to announce that my “solid galaxy” bat is up for sale on Ebay. This bat is made completely from custom printed minky fabric. It has quilt batting in the wings and ears to add thickness and help stabilize them. The body is weighted with polypellets and it has a pyrite charm on a ribbon around its neck.

I am not very familiar with Ebay. I occasionally list things just to test the waters. I figured this would be a good plush to put up there since I’ve had a HUGE amount of interest and a lot of people stating yesterday they wanted to buy it, but couldn’t do so today due to time restraints.

Hopefully this will let a few more people have a shot at getting the bat they want.
