Z Gallerie has their Halloween merch up on their website and that's good news for those of us who window shop from the comfort of our easy chair. They've made an interesting choice for theme this year-- sort of the antithesis of Bath and Body Works' 2011 Halloween line.
Whereas BBW had a very brightly colored pop sensibility, ZG has gone for a monochromatic color scheme of black, white and silver.
And those colors seem to grace everything skeletal: skeletons, skeleton hands, skulls... and a nice grouping of spiders too.
For those who are looking for an elegant Halloween spread, look no further than Z Gallerie. There's only one Frankenstein item (a set of beverage napkins featuring Boris Karloff's visage) and it slides seamlessly in amongst the boney votives, hangers and bookends due to its B&W image.
For those who like to plan ahead, grab the shiny chromed skull ornaments for your holiday tree.
My personal favs are the "Glitter Halloween Ornaments" (mainly because I have white versions I bought years ago at a another store for a MUCH higher price point and they've been dropped enough to where I need a new set), the previously mentioned Frankenstein beverage napkins, and THIS wood skull clock.
Something about the mix of the sinister skull, with the practicality of a clock and the secrecy of a '60's Batman Shakespeare head that draws me to it like Chester Copperpot to a One-Eyed Willie treasure.
What? Did I lose you? Too many references?
Sorry, sometimes I only speak in Poperanto--- it's a constructed pop culture auxiliary language I just made up.
