Pricks of the Month: 11 Enamel Pins for December
The shadows are growing deeper every day, peering into our windows with their un-eyes. The cold embrace of unforgiving seasonal death surrounds us, oblivious to the harsh forced joy of twinkle lights draped from the trees, and we are helpless in its grip. Warmth and hope are distant memories. All is lost. Surrender to the void.
Or just stay inside, pour a stiff drink, turn the music up to 11, and browse our selection of pins. The void doesn’t care what you do.
What’s better than something? Nothing. Inner Decay//$10
The Unknown Woman Lapel Pin
This pin based off the death mask of L’inconnue de la Seine is the epitome of the beauty in death. Also, the fact that copies of the death mask were sold as art is proof as to how bloody morbid the Parisian Bohemians were. Creepy Company//$9.99
DÖD Enamel Pin
Pretty much everything looks more badass when it’s in Swedish (“DÖD” means “death,” in case you aren’t a Swede). Torvenius//$10
Death Moth Pin
This Death’s Head Moth goes a step beyond most designs by adding a gristly rib cage. And we’ll go a step closer to covering our battle vests in moths, thanks. Crunchy Fingers//$12.49
Castlevania Death Pin
We’re pretty sure Castlevania‘s Grim Reaper was just hanging out with Dracula between reaping shifts. You know, just a couple of dudes getting together for beers. Maybe throwing a movie on. Anthropomorphized depictions of our own mortality need friends, too. Two Crows Printing//$10
Funeral No Parking Pin
“Whose funeral?” they ask. “Mine. Yours. The world’s. Does it fucking matter?” you reply, before vanishing in a puff of ennui. Creepy Company//$7.99
Death’s Head Pin
As usual, Dana Glover nails it. Dana Glover Art//$10
“Enjoy Death” Pin
If you gotta do it, might as well enjoy it. No use crying over spilled life force. Wir sind die Toten//$11.81
Marley’s Ghost Pin
The Marleys were dead to begin with, the lucky bastards. Pinny Dreadful//$9.99
A Norse-themed pin related to an awareness of death? Of course we like it. Also, it just looks wicked. Cat Coven//$10
It Will End In Tears Pin
Pessimistic? Realistic? We’re just calling things like we see them. Bring on the wailing and gnashing of teeth. Life Club//$6.90+
