Batty, It’s Cold Outside: Winter Gear for the Creepy

Share this:

Perhaps you live in a tropical paradise and wear nothing but shorts and crop tops all year long. Good for you. (We swear, we’re not wishing you any ill will. We’re just blind with jealous rage, that’s all.) For those of us who are currently delving headfirst into winter, however, staying warm in the great outdoors is a must. Fortunately, you don’t have to sacrifice your darkling style to keep the chills out. We collected some of our favorite scarves, hats, and gloves together for all your demon snowman making needs.
