[This is a bit of a teaser, but these awesome elves were available from OneailFXStudios. Currently they are not taking orders, but they are estimating they will be caught up with current demand by the 12th and resume taking new orders at that time.]
If you name a thing, you give it power. Isn't that like occult 101? Leave it to the Santa worshipers to open the gates of hell with this one.
There is an awesome story on boredpanda about one Brittany Mease,
Mother of the Year and how her elf came to this unfortunate circumstance.
Kevin Thompson has written 14 ways the elf on the shelf might die. What makes it even funnier is this guy is a pastor and some of these are pretty twisted. I would almost considering joining a religion if I had a pastor who wrote stuff like this.
This a great review of He Who Must Not Be Named and some other disturbing Xmas toys. The elf doesn't show up until the very end of the video. For personal reasons I found it humorous that the reviewer noticed the similarities between the elf and slender man.
I've been a fan of RevenantFX since the early years of Creepmas
and they don't disappoint with their zombie elves.
Is this an elf? He has proper elf attire. Elf Mouse in the house, maybe? Anyway this adorable bugger is from RatBerryToys and wouldn't freak me out at all if I saw him hanging out on shelf or anywhere else in my house.
