Matthew Mead's Frightfully Fun Halloween


By far one of the best Halloween magazines out this year is Matthew Mead's Frightfully Fun Halloween out on stands now. It's got some very clever and inventive ideas and lots of inspiration that has been lacking in other magazines! I've previewed a few things below that I really liked - the diorama, the owls, the steampunk style pumpkins - and especially painting the pumpkins to look like old vintage Halloween papier mache lanterns was clever. I love how they turned out! Also featured was a framed vintage Beistle cutout of a pumpkin with a wheat stalk in its mouth - we sell repros of this cutout and the rest of the series (8 in all - 4 shown below) at The Vintage Halloween Website Store.

Always look forward to this magazine. Last year there was a larger non-newstand version available at bookstores. Do you know if they were doing that this year?

I don't think that there is a larger version available--just this one on stands.

Thank you for the heads up... it wasn't out last time i went to the store to check out magazines! I have a hard time locating his magazines sometimes in local stores.
