I recently discovered Creepy Co., thanks to Broke Horror Fan. It’s a small, but very cool online boutique that sells beautiful enamel pins, patches, stickers and other fun curiosities that pay homage to horror and cult films.
I’d eventually like to collect all of the pins, but for now I snagged the Overlook Hotel Enamel Pin.
I’m a huge fan of The Shining. I love the classic horror themes of the story — the haunted hotel, the possession, the creepy child with “special gifts.” I love the actors — Shelley Duvall, Jack Nicholson, Scatman Crothers.
And of course, I love the director, Stanley Kubrick. Like all of his films, The Shining has these iconic scenes. Stylish and powerful, images like The Overlook’s carpet (the pattern on the pin), the maze, the long winding road up the mountain, and the rushing waves of blood are burned into my mind.
The colors of the carpet are bold and a perfect accent for casual and professional dress. This is a pin that looks great on a jacket or vest pocket, alongside your favorite bands.
The best part? If you love The Shining, you immediately know what it is. And if you don’t know anything about The Overlook? Well, it’s just a super cute lapel pin.
Head over to Creepy Co. to buy one for yourself. At $12, they are a reasonable indulgence.
This is an honest thumbs up to Creepy Co.’s pin. I was not compensated for this review.
