I'm getting quite a laugh out of Sourpuss's "Gingerdead" holiday sweater. The little gingerbread skeletons are so cute!

This Etsy Shop Experiences a Lot of Nightmares Before Christmas

I wish I had this Nightmare Before Christmas costume before Halloween! Even though I am a bit late, I would let my kids run around in this any day! You could even go get some strange and fun Santa pictures with this costume!

If you or someone you love has a new baby, this Zero security blanket and toy is a whimsical and unique gift idea. I always make sure the little ones are aware of Nightmare Before Christmas early on!

Even with a slight sinister smile on his face, this Jack Skellington security blanket is very cute! I am so glad his bow tie is integrated in the blanket!

How can you resist such a playfully dark Nightmare Before Christmas headband for babies? Any new goth parents would love taking Halloween or other fun pictures with their newborn daughter wearing this accessory! The flower is detachable, which is fantastic since the black lace is stunning/

What a comforting Jack Skellington plush for the little ones. You can make sure he's watching over them as they sleep. His head is a little funny, but the kids might find it entertaining.

It's almost perfect that Zero would be a security blanket. His ghostly shape does look like a blanket! Plus, he is a great support for Jack. Now he can keep your little ones safe!

Funko's New Monster High Pop Vinyl Dolls

New from Funko - Monster High pop vinyl collectible figures. I can already see these being a huge hit among adults and kids both. I know this is the high school I wish I was able to attend as a young monster lover. See if some of your favorite Monster High characters come in Funko form down below.

Of course you can't pass up the main Monster High character, Draculaura! This Funko Monster High Draculaura Pop figure really brings out her fun and loving charm. As you may know, she is one of the sweetest characters in Monster High, even with her tragic backstory!

Another fan favorite (including mine) is this Funko Monster High Frankie Pop figure. It's undeniable that she's related to Frankenstein's Monster and his Bride! She features all of their most obvious traits. Plus, her character is fun and kind-hearted; that's what makes her so special.

The Funko Monster High Laguna Blue Pop figure is really pretty! The colors are incredibly lively and definitely POP!

This is one sassy lady! The Funko Monster High Clawdeen Pop figure has one of my favorite outfits. She comes from one large family of werewolves which I can imagine being annoying in high school. Being related to that notorious pack of werewolves in your school would be a little embarrassing.

Being the daughter of a pharaoh must be amazing. The Queen Bee, Funko Monster High Cleo Pop figure, needs to be a part of your monster collection. Even though she's a bit selfish (since she does come from royalty) her presence is necessary for Monster High.

Also new - I really enjoy these Monster High Rock Candy figures. Because they are posed in different ways, you can get all three to make a small Monster High scene.

Funko Monster High Draculaura Rock Candy Figure

Funko Monster High Frankie Rock Candy Figure

Funko Monster High Clawdeen Rock Candy Figure

What do you think of these Monster High Funko characters? It's a good start to your whole Monster High collection. This is a great gift option for some of your friends that are in love with Monster High, as well! Comment below and let me know what you think.

Giant Nightmare Before Christmas Plush Toys from Funko

I never thought I would fall so much in love with Nightmare Before Christmas Funko toys, but I suddenly did. These Mega Pop Nightmare Before Christmas Funko plush toys are absolutely fantastic. Now I can cuddle Jack or Sally and watch my favorite movie before Christmas this year! They measure about 16 inches tall.

Obviously this Mega Pop Santa Jack Skellington Funko plush is a must-have during the holidays. Just imagining all those evil and mischievous Christmas gifts puts a smile on my face - exactly like Jack's! You can have a delightfully dark holiday by displaying this giant Jack Skellington plush!

Now all of your wishes can come true with this Mega Pop Jack Skellington plush by Funko. I don't know about you, but the empty void in my heart will be filled by snuggling this Jack plush. I do wish his smile was a little more sinister, but how can I pass up the Pumpkin King?

This Mega Pop Sally Funko plush toy is perfection. I love her quirky smile - it's almost as if she's laid eyes on her beloved Jack! I honestly can't get enough of all her stitches all over her body, and her big beady black eyes. This Sally Funko may be the rag doll I need in my life!

Don't you think that these Mega Pop Nightmare Before Christmas Funko plush toys are cool? I think we all deserve a snuggle from Jack or Sally! Make sure to comment below and let me know what you think!

Coming in 2017 - Stranger Things Toys from Funko

This show is so amazing - I actually watched it twice (that doesn't happen often.) I can go on forever about how I love the cinematography. Each character has traits that all support each other, reflecting a real life D&D game.

If you also loved this show, then you need to have these new Stranger Things Funko Pop figures.

Everyone loves Barb. Most of us social rejects can relate to Barb, because we've all had that one friend that leaves us in the dust (for a boy none the less!) Now we can mourn her everyday while she sits with you in your office or living room.

I can't wait to see how many kinds of Eleven Funko pop figures they are going to come up with. This one gave me a good chuckle, since it does honor her passion for Eggo Waffles. I personally really enjoy this part of Eleven's development as a character, since she's starting to feel loved and getting protective of her new friends.

I am really hoping this hopeless romantic will get his love interest back in season 2! Mike wasn't my favorite out of the squad of boys, but he was still very adorable. Plus, he doesn't have a problem with strong women!

I am so happy they have this Lucas Funko pop figure in his 'Nam outfit. Even though he is a bit reactive, I can't help but admire his passion. In reality, I think everyone would be exactly like Lucas in a situation like Stranger Things, a skeptic! Plus, he's that rare gem of a friend who isn't afraid to speak his mind.

I have a feeling Dustin is everyone's favorite geek; he's definitely mine. I admire how he's the glue of the group and keeps the rest of the rowdy boys in check. He's also not afraid to be himself, in character and in real life! I'm glad they have put cleidocranial dysplasia in the spotlight. Of course, my favorite part about Dustin is he ridiculously adorable.

We hardly got to know Will this season, except that he's a good hider! He may even be able to map the Upside Down so they will know more about the Demogorgon later.

The Demogorgan is horrifying. Who wouldn't be afraid of a carnivorous flower-monster-thing. I can hear the crunching and ripping sounds it makes while tearing into the flesh of it's victims in the back of my head right now! Aiee!

If you want to start your Stranger Things Funko Pop! figure collection correctly, you can get all 7! I think it's so awesome that they have 7 figures from the get-go!

Which Stranger Things character is your favorite? Are you looking forward to season 2? I hope it's darker and more sinister now that we've covered character development! Make sure to comment below and tell me your thoughts!

Limited Edition Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Jack Skellington

These limited edition Hikari Sofubi Jack Skellington figures by Funko are really spectacular. Each vinyl is labeled with a number and there is a cap on how many will be made. For how rare it will be in the future, the price is very reasonable.

"Hikari, meaning ‘light’, is a highly collectible line of clear Sofubi Vinyl Figures. These will be ultra-limited and piece runs will range from 250 pcs-5000pcs depending on the treatment. Each Hikari piece will include a numbered card to prove authenticity and rarity."

- Funko Pop (Quote from Gemini Collectibles)

The Jack Skellington Hikari figure is really ominous, especially since his body looks a little foggy. Since he looks like he is fading in and out, this piece definitely looks as though he is a part of Halloween Town.

The limited edition Hikari Jack Skellington figure is also available on eBay.

The figures come in Amethyst, Midnight and Christmas colors.

What do you think of this limited edition Hikari figure? There are a lot of other figures that you might be able to find that suit your needs. I just know I need to start collecting all my Tim Burton favorites! Comment below!

Nightmare Before Christmas Tsum Tsum Spiral Hill Playset

Just in time for Christmas - Disney came out with this cute Nightmare Before Christmas Tsum Tsum playset, featuring the Spiral Hill.

The set comes with the Spiral Hill diorama, Jack Skellington and a little pumpkin he fits into, Sally and a basket that she fits into. Her basket includes a dead fish skeleton and a potion bottle.

Surprise your favorite NMBC loving goth with this under the tree this dark holiday season!

Autumn Stripes for Little Goth Girls

There are still whimsical fall clothes for little goth girls available that are to die for. It's not too late to get something a little dark and fun for the little ones for autumn this year.

Don't you think this dress looks like it came straight from an Edward Gorey piece? The flamestitch ruffley neckline sweater dress looks like it would keep your little one warm. Just add some gray stockings and a black jacket!

I wish I found this striped taffeta dress before school started. It would be perfect for some elegantly dreary photos. It would even work for a darker Christmas photo with the occasional silvery stripes.

This flocked stripe taffeta skirt works for both winter and autumn. The cold teal colors really pop against the black stripes. My favorite feature is the sequin applique at the waist - it's stunning.

Which is your favorite of the three dresses? I wish my niece was a little older, because I would have gotten all of these for her in a heart beat. Comment below!

Pathetically Cute Walking Dead Mopeez Plush Toys

Who would have thought a world full of blood soaked zombies could possibly be cute? These Walking Dead Mopeez plus toys have changed my perspective! Too bad there aren't any zombies, but they do have lots of my favorite characters available. Take a peek!

Even though Daryl Dixon is technically not the main character, you can't help but love him! I would pick him to be my partner through the zombie apocalypse any day.

Oh Rick Grimes... The expression on this Mopeez plush's face is exactly how I feel about Rick. You may love Rick, so take this sheriff with you everywhere!

Is it too soon? This Hershel plush is oddly adorable. I wish he was holding his cane! He's even displaying his eternally distressed look that he does on the show!

I am loving this Glenn Mopeez plush. The hardcore expression on his face mixed with his body armor is hilarious. I wouldn't mind hanging out with this Glenn plush during my work day!

You would feel safe and sound with Michonne by your side. I know she's supposed to be threatening, but she's too cute!

This is one of my favorite Walking Dead characters. Do you think enough time has passed to get this Tyreese Mopeez plush without shedding at least a few tears?

You can get all six Walking Dead Mopeez plush toys on Amazon and lay them out for your next Walking Dead marathon. This would be an awesome collection to start.

Aren't these Walking Dead Mopeez plush toys a little too adorable to pass up? Make sure to comment below and let me know your thoughts!
