As I type this there is a huge snow storm happening outside as part of our second Nor'easter in as many weeks. I don't mind it that much, but when it started today it was also thundering and lightning, which is really weird to me. Everything is covered in a blanket of white, then a bolt of lightning flashes above it with an almost blinding brilliance, soon followed by an earthquaking thunder clap. Throw in a tornado and we'd really have a winter horror story worthy of a SyFy Network feature. Oh, and sharks. Gotta have sharks.
If we can have spring and winter weather in the same week then I think it is perfectly acceptable to start mixing up our holidays as well. So this year we're switching out St. Patrick's Day for Halloween. Circus Posterus inspired my shake up of this year's calendar the moment I saw this Candy Corn Kuma. Cast in resin by the folks at Mana Studios and then hand painted, this will have you trading in your green shamrock apparel for orange and black without a second thought. Standing 9 inches tall and limited to only 30 pieces, he can be yours right now for $200 by visiting www.circusposterus.com.
