"With This Ring, I Ask You to Be Mine"

One of my treasures! Corpse Bride Wedding Vow & Skeleton Rings. They come in a lovely butterfly box, with the vow printed inside the box and in the bigger ring there are skeletons dancing and the smaller one has some kind of vine or barbed wire running around it. These are made by McFarlane and the whole item is quite nicely done. The rings are not silver, but maybe steel?
         I had been wanting this item for my collection for ages and then one day I found this from a gothic second hand FB group. A lady was selling this because she had bought it for her and her husbands wedding rings, but the size had been wrong. I don't recall how much I paid for this but it was probably something like 15-20€. I maybe got this in 2013.
        As soon as I got this I actually tried the ring on and it fits perfectly so for a slight moment I thought about having these as our wedding rings, but then we decided to get complitely unique rings when we got married.


Black & White Handbag

This is an old one, probably bought this in 2009 or 2010. I found this handbag from a flea market in Kuopio for 2 euros. It was so inexpensive I had to buy it and I have actually used this couple of times because it is big enought for a phone, umbrella and a wallet.
     I do not really collect bags, clothes or jewellery from Burton's movies because there are million items and most of them are not official. Sometimes though I might buy something if it is very affordable.

The Crone

I got this one back in 2014 but here's the more detailed post about it. 

This one came from the U.K. and this is much more horrifying than I expected. This is The Crone from movie Sleepy Hollow. Figure is made by McFarlane and I totally love their figures! This one also is great quality: her hands move, her eyes and tongue move when you pull the "snake tail" -thing on the back of her head. She came with all these accesories you see in the picture. This cost about 10€ including shipping and was definitely worth that money, could have paid even more for it. 
            I was happy to get this since this was my first Sleepy Hollow figure and I had only few other things from the movie before this one.

Tim Burton: Interviews

I got this book as a birthday present from my parents in 2014 but since I am renewing some posts to make this blog more clear here's a new post about this book.
       The book is paperback, edited by Kristian Fraga and published in 2005 by University Press of Mississippi. This is the first edition.
       This includes a good chronology of Tim Burton's career and filmography. Interviews with Mr. Burton by several interviewers are collected in this book. There are interviews from 1988 to 2003 conserning several of his movies.


Dr. Finkelstein Trading Figure

I bought this in 2014 with Oogie Boogie trading figure, that post you can find HERE.
These mini trading figures are made by JUN Planning and you have to build them from smaller pieces.

P.S. I just noticed that the package has Dr. Finkelstein mispelled!



Mars Attacks! Storybook

Here's new separate post about the Mars Attacks! storybook in Finnish. I bought this via huuto.net about five years ago. Don't remember the price anymore, but it was probably couple of euros. The book is written by Jonathan Gems and published by Gummerus Kirjapaino Oy in 1997.
    No images included in the book, only the story. This one is paperback.



Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Squominos Game

And the last item arriving this week was Charlie and The Chocolate Factory - Squominos Game. There is no mark of the year but this is manufactored by Funrise Toy Corp. with Warner Bros trademark and it has a photo from the movie so it is made about in the same time as the movie.
    I bought this from eBay for about 15€ including shipping. Item is second hand, used by previous owner but still in good condition and complete with all the pieces.
