Batdabs are part of the Halloween collection of artworks produced by Magweno called Abdabs. They are only available during Abdab Season, which runs 1st September until 30th November every year. The Batdabs are the latest design which has just finished the prototyping stage, and in celebration they are being offered in unlimited preorder for 24 hours on the 28th February. Batdabs are jittery, fluttering, fragile abdabs that hang in the dark, undisturbed nooks of trees and cliffs. They are commonly seen in the nights after the full moon, when it is darkest, and come out to feast on insects and any meat they can find. They prefer fresh blood, and if lots of them gather in one place they can cause real damage to livestock by landing on them and biting them to make them bleed. Don’t confuse them with vampire bats, these guys will give you the curse of flesh decay as well as everlasting life and a craving for blood if they bite you. Keep your Batdab caged at all times, or locked in a cupboard.
Batdabs have fabric beanbag bodies and fake fur manes with cast resin skulls, feet and wings. They measure 4.5″ tall and weigh about 90g.
Price – £40 + P&P
Unlimited release but for 24hours pre-order only. Release date – 9am Feb 28th – 9am Feb 29th (GMT) (24 Hour preorder) then 1st September – 30th November (Abdab Season)
