But now back to Martha . . .
I was moderately pleased with my purchase. Even if the "Martha as Mothra" cover creeped me out a little. I have issues with moths' wings. But that's another story.
This year's Halloween offering is not an entirely new one.
But it is mostly new. And while not up to the level of past years (which makes me wonder about staff changes amongst her minions) there are a few ideas that caught my eye . . .
. . . including the section on classic B-movie-inspired costumes. Which I'm sure hasn't influenced my opinion of the magazine in the least. My personal favourite is "The Vanishing Man". Clearly a relative of "The Invisible Man", who must have been too busy for the photo shoot.
Yes, this year, Martha is all about classic images and B-movies. And pistachio cupcakes.
I will most definitely be trying the pistachio cupcakes.
