As Fall approaches, like most people, we start to get excited for October, Halloween, and all the spooky decor, art, and toys that will soon fill up Instagram feeds and online shops. It also means that soon artists will start tackling 31 day Halloween drawing challenges.
In the past we have participated in a few of these challenges, but this year we wanted to attempt something a little different. We wanted to make an October prompt list that is aimed specifically at the art form of customizing toys. And so…. Curse of the 31 Customs was born.
If someone has not fully taken the leap into sculpting or painting on a toy platform, we didn’t want to leave them out. Therefore, we are also encouraging people to find their favorite toy templates and sketch out their toy custom ideas.
We will be making all 31 customs ourselves (full disclaimer, we started in August to make sure we finished all them lol), on toy platforms such as Dunnys, Jankys, Kill Kats, our own figure Rotty Rigo, and many others. We will be revealing them one day at a time starting on October 1st. Every one of the 31 customs we make will be available for purchase starting November 2nd in our Etsy Shop and then from November 13-15 during the DesignerCon 2020 online convention experience.
We decided to release the list early in September so that people have plenty of time to create the ones that speak to them. Whether someone does 1 or 31 custom toys /drawings, we want everyone to have a fun creative time. We also hope to see both veteran customizers, as well as newcomers participate. And as a thank you to those people who participate, we will be giving away some prizes. These include one of our 4” Munny customs, and an original illustration, and more. (Winner will be picked via a random name generator from the list of those who qualify) Full info on the rules and prizes can be found on our Instagram @ghostfoxtoys in our featured story titled FAQ.
We are excited to see what everyone creates! When posting your cursed custom toys on your Instagram feed and stories, please make sure to tag us, @ghostfoxtoys and use #curseofthe31customs so we can find them and share them on our Instagram. See you all in October!, Michelle and Gino – Ghost Fox Toys
