I got a good deal on this snail awhile back and thought I'd zombify him. I still haven't figured out what I can do to make him more zombie like, so I haven't change a thing. Yes, this is exactly how he looked when I found him, minus the santa hat.
He's still out from Halloween, and my husband, not the Halloween enthusiast, asked me when he's going to get put away. So I did what I always do around this time when I can't let go of something Halloweeny yet, I gave him a holiday makeover. Years before Creepmas was a thing, I found throwing on a santa hat on something will buy me at least another month.
I had to make a hat for him and I was trying to decide what to make. A big hat that covers his head with holes for his eyestalks, a little one slung back behind his eyestalks, maybe a teeny tiny one between his eyestalks. Snail fashion is complicated. So I thought WWGD. What would Gary (from SpongeBob) do? Not thinking, I google, "gary santa hat". To my surprise a ton of images of snakes in santa hats popped up. Are there a lot of snakes named Gary? Anyway, a lot of them weren't just any old snakes, they were ball pythons. I adore ball pythons. So that's how I found all these awesome pictures:
By the way I did google, "gary snail santa hat" and I found this.
Sorry Gary, but the whole "hats on both eyestalks" thing just doesn't work for me.
And here are some more snails in santa hats:
If you know how to knit there are free patterns to make these guys at mochimochiland.com.
Lots of Christmas themed snail stickers at zazzle.com, wish there were some that said Creepmas.
Also I promised a cat o' nine tails. I think this one would make a great gift for Krampus. Bet nobody ever thinks to give him something.
