I’m not exactly fond of creepy toys especially the gory ones. But this custom from Plaseebo is something I’d like to have and bring along during Halloween. Lol. This green glow-in-the-dark vinyl toy is called Specimen No.X-50U2 and is actually created for the Halloween Massacre Show which will open on October 30th at the Monstock Gallery in Tokyo.
I think I actually gave a friend an item a bit similar to this when I was in college. Something yucky, part of the Kris Kringle/Secret Santa thing where you anonymously give small gifts to a person whose name you randomly picked. Do you remember those plastic toys that grows like 500% of their size or something? Mostly they are insects or sea creatures. I bought one of that, placed it in an empty Bubble Tape container, add some water and some cough syrup which I think belongs to my roommate. The toy I bought grew only about 300%. I sealed the container with some tape and wrapped it in some used plastic. My friend whom I gave the gift to wasn’t able to completely open the package. It was a bit smelly with plastic fumes and cough syrup. We had a good laugh. I don’t really remember my friend getting mad at me when she found out that I was her Secret Santa. I should have used a jar though. You could see the whole thing and it looks ickier. Lol.
