It’s finally here, the prequel to Halloween, Frankenstein Day! The day where we celebrate the birth of the greatest female horror writer, Mary Shelley, and her greatest creations, Victor Frankenstein’s Monster.
Written in 1818 Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus was written as a competition with Lord Byron and John Polidori, about who could write the best horror story. I think we can say she won, with a whole day devoted to worshipping Shelley and her Monster.
Here are some of our favourite items to look ‘franken-fine’ on Frankenstein day.
Vivienne Westwood Frankenstein chunky knit
Granted this is the priciest of the items, but this classic grey knit would never date. With exaggerated red stitches on the shoulder areas, it’s a great way to play homage to The Creature.
Zombie cat earring
Handmade this statement earring is puuuur-fect with its pale mint tone cat, with exposed brain ear. Made from clay, this is ideal for a subtle nod to all things Frankenstein.
My family is weird necklace
Everyone’s family is a little weird every once in a while, and this necklace confirms it. This square pendant has the Frankenstein family trio, super cute.
The perfect item to wrap yourself in this autumn. Complete with neck bolts, this is one way of channeling your inner monster over the dark nights.
