So theres only 73 days to go. Its about time I made my invites. I was getting bored of just sending out a bit of paper so here's what ive came up with this year:
Each guest will receive one matchbox containing 13 matches (6 black, 6 red and 1 skelly), and a sealed note. Click the pic.

The note reads: **some I pinched from Poe!!**

In the icy air of night
Amid the shadows, a gruesome sight
Death has reared himself a throne
In a strange garden, lying alone
Join us for an eve of delights
Of spooky songs and plenty o' frights.

Very cool! Love the wax seal. I used a wax seal on all my wedding invites, I had a lot of compliments on them. Very cool idea for the invites...I want one! :D

Mine's obviously gone astray in the post!

They look brilliant. Hope the party can live up to such a great appetizer. 8)

Ha! I really don't know what the party will be like. The usual madness I expect.
Just finished making a batch of 20. 260 individually painted matchsticks! I never knew life could get so boring. And to top it off, a drop of flaming sealing wax fell on my finger removing a few layers of skin.

I am serious if anyone wants an invite just let me know. I'll be making more when im over the HORRIFIC finger injury and im sure I'll have some leftovers. :wink:

29th. Im sure I remember reading that your having one on the same date.
Slightly off topic EZ, but have you been in that wee shop on Cockburn street? I cant remember its name but its where Beyond Words used to be. They've got some really nice little poison bottles in just now. I bought an Eye of Newt and a Dragon Blood.

I think the shop is called Old Town Context. Im sure they were around £3 each. Take a gander:

Edinburghzombie's party Vs. Monstermash's party. But which ones better? There's only one way to find out...

Amazing invites MM. I always envy people here - such imagination and talent.

BTW they have potion bottles for sale in the shop at the Camera Obscura and I think I also saw some in the shop at Mary Kings Close.

Thoes bottles are real nice, I bet I could whip up some nice labels like that in illustrator or photoshop and make a bunch of cool ones.

I always wanted to get one of those, where can u buy them + are they expensive?
