Pricks of the Month: 14 Enamel Pins for October
IT’S OCTOBER, WITCHES! SOUND THE ALARM! THE BEACONS ARE LIT!
As we prepare to climb from our throne of glittering orange skulls and begin bathing daily in pumpkin spice, we’re also prepping our jackets to be as autumnal as humanly possible. Our choices? Bats, blood, and babes.
Bat Enamel Pin
We’re easing into the Halloween season with another pin to add to our #allbateverything aesthetic. Sometimes simple is the way to go. Dennis Hansbury//$13
Candy Corn Triple Goddess Pin
Yeah, it’s cool to hate on candy corn these days, but those of us who remain devoted to the tricolor glory need a way to recognize one another. Enter this pin. Cory Benhatzel//$8
Drippy Blood Enamel Pins
MoPins has a great selection of spooky pins, including these great blood drips that come in standard gore or glitter dribbles. Wouldn’t they be great atop a cravat? Mo Pins//$10 each
Ghost in a Jar Pins
Something in this ghost’s expression tells us they may not have been ethically sourced. They do glow in the dark, though, if that helps ease your conscience any. Sprinkle Bat//$10 each
Deadly Axe Lapel Pin
This pin might be the most clever, least dull usage of the Overlook carpet pattern we’ve seen in a while. Two Ghouls Press//$10
Kawaii Black Ouija Nuggets
Not only do these pins have one of the cutest names we’ve ever typed out, they’re just dripping in adorable. Occult toe beans? We’re interested. Bright Bat Design//$10 each or $25/all three
Folk Art Inspired Pumpkin Pin
We’re always at home to Mr. Halloween Kitsch, and this little folksy pumpkin is ringing our doorbell. Skulduggery Co.//$9
Flying Bat Collar Pin Set
Baby Vampire Bats Enamel Pins
These darling, Kewpie-like vampire babies would be the perfect angels on your shoulders this October. “Go ahead, pick up a few more skull candles,” they’d say. “You deserve it.” Stacey Martin Tattoos//$23
The Girls of Arachne Pin Set
Steph Buscema is the artist behind Kitschy Witch Designs, a company we’ve had a crush on since FOREVER. We loved this pair of spider-woman pins so much that we’re giving away a set later this month! Keep your eyes on our Facebook page for more details. Or just pick up a pair yourself, before they’re gone. Steph Buscema Mart//$20
