Regina, Saskatchewan artist and owner of Creeping Death Productions, JC WYLDE shows his love for original ’80s rubber toys with his detailed WYLDEBALLS. Made of thick squeezable latex rubber, these horror-themed softball-sized creations are fully durable. But before you think of taking one down to the sandlot, keep n mind they are fashioned as pieces of art intended for display.
This first run of five familiar horror characters include a zombified version of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson (as he looked in the music video Thriller), Baby Freddy Krueger (from A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child), Tiny Firefly from Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses, Sam (Trick’R’Treat) and a John Carpenter-themed alien from the 1980’s classic They Live.
Priced at $50 USD, these WYLDEBALLS will be on hand at the Creeping Death booth along with many other horror surprises for the upcoming Calgary Horror Con this June 2-3 at Calgary’s Clarion Hotel. JC has revealed that he is also hard at work on a larger “boss” Wyldeball that is sure to be a hit; any guesses on who the character may be? (I will reveal it here exclusively first when completed)
