The Halloween Candy Bride of Frankenstein


I can’t think of a better, more Halloween-centric image: The Bride, created out of Halloween candy! Look closely; those are M&Ms, Skittles, Kit-Kats and all manner of candy packages serving as color pixels, like a Manet or a Seurat painting in pointillism.

The artist is Eric Millikin — a longtime friend of Frankensteinia —  who has created a gallery of crazy candy-art monsters first revealed on his blog at the Detroit Free Press. Characters include Elvira, Freddy Krueger, Nosferatu and, of course, The Bride’s beau. The illustrations, each one using thousands of candy wrappers, also include a hidden, see-if-you-can-find-it spider.

We’re super-happy to see Eric’s work all over the net this week and featured on such sites as Huffingtonpost and Ellen Degeneres’ Good News blog on Yahoo. Thanks to Eric, everybody is celebrating our favorite holiday with candy, great art, and favorite monsters!

See all the candy-art monsters on Eric Millikin’s Detroit Free Press blog.

Happy Halloween!
