Kicking Off Scarecrow Week

In honor of those straw-gutted sentinels stationed throughout the autumn landscape, this has been designated Scarecrow Week here at Macabre Republic.  All week long I'll be posting theme-related editions of familiar Features (Dark Articles, Cinemacabre, Games/Trivia, etc.).

Today, though, I want to take a moment to highlight the morbid brilliance of a venture called The Grim Stitch Factory.  Anyone planning on costuming him-/herself as a scarecrow or haunting the yard with such frightful figures this Halloween needs to check out the nightmarish wares being peddled by this online business.  Grim Stitch's handmade, one-of-a-kind burlap masks are grotesquerie personified (imagine Rob Zombie directing a remake of The Wizard of Oz).  And forget just crows--these eldritch visages are guaranteed to spark flight in all those who lay eyes on them.  Be prepared to fork over some serious scratch if you want to take home one of these gruesome beauties.  But the website itself is terrifically creepy, and well worth the surf if only to soak up its rustic Gothic ambiance.
