Thanks to everyone who attended the 4th Annual Vampire's Day Soiree!

Speaking of giveaways,
I won a fang bottle opener from Insomniac's Attic!

Here's a gift from the Jill Tracy V. Day concert for all of you:

I'm planning another party for Vincent Price's birthday in May.
Stay tuned for details on that soon.

Right now I'm gearing up for March Mecha Madness!
Where bad bots will battle and YOU decide who wins!

Jill Tracy is doing an online concert today,
but you can see her live right here!

If I could afford it, I'd give away one of these:
Coffin USB with Jill Tracy's ENTIRE Discography!

including this vampentine card!

All soiree attendees are in the draw.
You can still sign up to be one here.

Bleeding Hearts Day Challenge

Debi of Easel & Quill is challenging us to do some creative coupling!
You can get all the juicy details here.

So I've paired Vampira & John Cleese!
And here's how they met...

Vampira said:

John said "Yes, please!"
So she bit him and turned him into Count Cleese!

Now they're unliving largely and inverted!

You can get a print of the photo of Vampira here.

You can get a postcard with the photo of John at,
which I'll be giving away a gift certificate to at the V. Day Soiree!

Japanese Lesson

You can read the Shonen Jump issue this is in free till 2/15 here!

KAIJU is another word for monster, or literally "strange creature."

A KAIJIN is a humanoid monster.

And a DAIKAIJU is a giant monster.

Speaking which,
GORIRA (Gorilla) + KUJIRA (Whale) = GOJIRA (Godzilla)

I couldn't let Japanuary end without mentioning the King!

Or Kyuketsuki's Day! (More Godzilla valentines here.)

Poe and Postcards

Song by Voltaire. Art by Suehiro Maruo.

I posted that video on my Facebook page for Poe's birthday.
Now I'm posting it here for Voltaire's birthday, which is today!

I found out you can get the Poe art piece on a postcard,
along with five others in this sweet sanguinary set here:

Suehiro Maruo Vampire Panorama

It'd make a perfect gift for Vampire's Day, eh?

So would these Mari Shimizu vampire doll postcards:

You can get them here.

Invitation to the Fourth Annual Vampire's Day Soiree

February 14th is no longer a day to dread,
when it's all about the love of the undead!

(I dug this video up from my first Vampire's Day post,
since it's also fitting for Japanuary.)

To join the sanguinary soiree, simply sign up below.
Then post anything vampire related on Feb. 14th.
Be sure to include a link back here too.

If you post on Facebook or Twitter,
please use hashtag #VampiresDay
Let's see if we can make it a trend!

L is for...

A few of my favorite Japanese things!

L from Death Note:

And all the sweets he eats!

Like my favorite,

Which I lick while I rock Lolita frocks!

And watch fitting anime,
like Le Portrait de Petite Cossette:

And Le Chevalier D'Eon,
which you can read my review of here!

Lastly, the lovely La Carmina:
Who I plan to do a post on soon,
but you can read about her here!
