Back in February, we kicked off our DIY Monster Makers feature series with a look at the work of uniquely talented artist Gabe LaPeer, a sculptor, graphic designer and illustrator who had launched a Facebook page to showcase his custom designs, sculptures and action figures “with a slant towards the dark and gruesome.” Now you've got more opportunities to purchase LaPeer's twisted creations through his “Homemade Horror” store on Storenvy.
The inventive genre-bending “Karbonite Killers” series is still available (sold both as single figures and sets), as well as the “Custom Crazies” figures, a line of hand-painted cast resin miniatures (most under 6”) with custom bases, all signed by the artist.
The collection includes Belial from Basket Case, various “Crites” from Critters, the title beasties from Troll and Ghoulies, and kid victim “Little Buddy” from Halloween III.
Online availability of these items is very limited (the creature from “The Crate” in Creepshow is sold out as of this writing), but some figures will also be available at conventions. Be sure to drop by Homemade Horror for the complete gallery and ordering info.
