It’s almost Halloween. The countdown is just about on. One of the most classic costumes for Halloween is of course the Devil. There are different variations of the old stand by so check out how these celebs made the devil their own.
I don’t know if you’re aware of this, and I’m sorry if this comes off like “Sex in the City” or “Housewives of Ho-ho Kus” or one of those shows I don’t watch, but Fright Catalog carries an amazing array of shoes. Pages and pages of shoes. But, unlike the shoes the spoiled housewives covet, these shoes might have cool creepy designs like blood spatter and themes like sexy devil. They can be worn as part of an awesome Halloween costume, of course, but I can’t think of a reason you couldn’t wear them all the time, other than the heels might tire you out. Or make you stronger. Who knows.
Cherry-patterned “Tart” shoes — hello, how cute are these? I’m assuming these would go with a ’50s pinup type costume, but they’re too adorable to collect dust the rest of the year.
The heels on these devil shoes are not as extreme as some of the others, making these black-and-red patent pumps almostÂ practical! A stylish accessory for a sexy devil costume that says HOT 365.
Nice girls don’t wear cha cha heels! Remember when Dawn Davenport (the late great Divine) ruined Christmas when she didn’t get her black cha cha heels in “Female Trouble”? Now they can be yours.
These blood-splattered beauties are currently out of stock, but keep your eyes peeled for a restock (the Devil heels were sold out a couple of weeks ago, so it can happen). These are perfect on many levels and can go with lots of costumes: sexy Chucky, Carrie, some kind of succubus… so many possibilities. They also come in black, which I kind of prefer, though I can’t get past the fact that the bloodstains wouldn’t show up on black shoes like that.
Let’s get right to the point shall we? I’ve been doing some research around the internet to bring you a collection of my favorite and most disturbing ancient torture devices. Just the sight of these devices would give even the makers of “Saw” and “Hostile” a chill down their spine. Even I, your Halloween Harlot, could not help but gasp and wince at the horrors before me.
It’s hard to believe that people could come up with such twisted ways to execute someone. Some forms of torture were used to get people to talk while others seem to have been invented for pure morbid pleasure. Though, once you found yourself into one of these little devices, no amount of talking, crying, or praying could save you. You are damn well damned if you do and damn well damned if you don’t. Your fate was sealed the minute the finger was pointed.
With that in mind, let me introduce to you our most multifunctional item. In fact, you most certainly have one of these horrific torture devices hanging around your garage. It’s called: The Saw. Perhaps you’ve heard of it? It’s great for cutting down trees or trimming lumber for various house hold projects. It’s also amazing at ripping through some poor soul’s flesh as they are hung upside down being bathed in their own blood.
In the middle ages, the cheapest, easiest, and most effective way to torture and/or kill a suspected criminal was with saw torture. Imagine all the fantastical torture devices in you time, all the wonderful ways to die, and your sorry criminal behind gets shafted to the saw. First, you get hung upside down with your legs spread. Your blood is rushed to your head which slows down blood loss and keeps you conscious longer as your body is sawed in half. Isn’t that nice. This method was especially handy during the Inquisition being used to extract confessions. Some bodies were sawed completely in half while others were only to the abdomen.
Now you can own your very own torture device! It’s not cheap- but it’s certainly worth the money. You can scare confessions out of any poor child or adult that dare cross you! The Buzz Saw has a huge spinning blade that comes and rips into the flesh and organs of the victim. It’s actually and illusion that uses the actor’s own head, arms, and legs. While it doesn’t hang you from your feet and rip you from your crotch to your abdomen, it still gets the “point across”.
Random Fact: Not to bring up dead babies again but… while we are on the subject… I came across a website that mentioned saw torture was used in France on pregnant woman who carried the “children of the devil”. Just a little info to store in your brain if you should need it.
