I recently announced that Cutea Benelli did Christmas. Since she usually creates grim items, skulls, monsters, and things that go bump in the night, along with some twisted humor and a dash of cyberpunk, the fact that Cutea did Christmas was rather newsworthy I thought.
The other day I visited Cutea’s little Christmas skybox and she happened to be there. It seemed she was toying with idea of removing it because Christmas is not really her thing. I can understand that because we need to be true to ourselves, but I still asked her to please let me know before she hit the big red button to obliterate it. Why? Because 1. I’d want to tell you. 2. I’d want to make sure there was nothing I missed buying there. ;)
Well, I have another announcement. Cutea has decided to redo Christmas . . . Cutea style.
Santa is a skeleton. The snow is bloody. The poor little baby snowman is in a coffin. The eyeballs are wearing Christmas hats.
Does that rule or what?
Speaking of the eyeballs, 100% of the money earned from them goes to nothingbutnets.net, a campaign to fight malaria in Africa. And man are they cute. They look at you as you walk by. She gave me one of them and I put him in the entrance to my arcade.
You’ll find other charity items at Cutea’s store as well, so if you want a taste of grim for Christmas and you want to give to a good cause as well be sure to check it out.
