Themed parties are always in style, whether it’s for a holiday, a birthday, or just because. And for all you horror lovers out there, what could be better than a party featuring all of your favorite monsters? Since the Universal Monsters don’t exactly have a mainstream following, gathering all of the merchandise you need for a party can be difficult. Unless it’s Halloween time, Wal-Mart or Target won’t have anything in stock, which leaves the wide-world of the Internet.
Luckily, Universal Studios have come out with licensed Universal Monsters party supplies that you can find on various websites all year around. Most of the supplies have “Happy Halloween” written on them, but for horror lovers, Halloween lasts 365 days, so don’t be afraid to use the supplies for any occasion! And you better hurry, they’re getting harder and harder to find.
Countless amounts of Universal Monsters merchandise are available so any fan can line their shelves. Decorations are great to look at and create any room into a ghoulish haven, but what is their depth? What can you learn from them?
Monster magazines offer readers in-depth articles on all of their favorite creatures, along with glossy, high resolution photos that can be cut out and used as a decoration. Below, I’ve included the top horror-themed magazines any monster fan should know. Each magazine contains articles on monsters, movies, television, merchandise, and much more. Check them out.
Want to declare your monster love with those who live outside of your house of horrors? No, you don’t need to carry around any of your collectibles to do this because many clothing brands, such as Rock Rebel and Monsters Universe are selling fully licensed Universal Monsters t-shirts and accessories, so monster fans all around the world can proudly don them.
Monster lovers don’t despair – just because Universal Horror was in its prime decades ago doesn’t mean there still aren’t plenty of ghoulish goodies to sink our claws into (all cheesy puns intended). Many online stores, such as Big Bad Toy Store, offer tons of Universal Monster merchandise from figurines to stuffed animals to backpacks. If you’re an avid collector like myself, check out this list of monster merchandise must-haves.
