Spin-a-Spell Halloween Twirlers
For Kadon's 29th season at the Maryland Renaissance Festival, for the final weekend of October 20-21, 2012, we prepared a little Halloween surprise. Some surplus disks of black and little white circles turned into Halloween-themed twirlers, with ghoulish painted faces and figures. Each was an original work of art by our talented associate, Eric the Wise, inspired by the creations of our resident artist, Meshele Merchant.
We had a lot of fun designing them and naming them. Each disk on the back carried a special message. These were the six choices:
For the trick-or-treaters on Halloween 2012, Eric made up dozens of copies of design No. 11, the witch and moon, in 6 assorted colors. We demonstrated their spinning, and they were a big hit, even if not edible. We couldn't help but reflect that this entire cultural tradition that has evolved into a commercial hoopla for candy manufacturers verges on terrorism and extortiona protection racket, reallyeven if disguised as entertainment by adorable kids in creative costumes. These twirlers are our answer.
You can order your very own disks of ghoulish foolery (or is it foolish ghoulery?) at any time. If there is a design you especially like, just put its number on the order. Supplied with instructions in drawstring bag. $15
