The Black Lagoon Room

Thirsty Monsters- Werewolf, Frankenstein and Creature from the Black Lagoon

Aahooooohhh! Warren Zevon’s classic rock song “Werewolves of London” taught us all that it’s a fact that werewolves love drinking Pina Coladas at Trader Vic’s. But they’re not the only ones.

Artist Pete Klockau imagines that lurking just below the foggy surface of our known reality, there’s a Tiki Bar called The Black Lagoon Room where sociable Universal Classic Monsters like to sip on rum-based, tropical cocktails. This week, The Black Lagoon Room brand released three new pins that feature thirsty creatures and their drinks of choice. There’s the aforementioned Pina Colada Wolfie, Whiskey Frank and Thirsty Creature. The full-color designs are each made from enamel and feature dual pin posts. Each pin measures approximately 1” long and 2” wide. They’re sold separately for $8 each in The Black Lagoon Room Etsy Store.

From top to bottom, the pin measures 3 cm. long. Niffler is now available through the UK-based artist’s Etsy shop and costs approximately $13.18.

The Cave of Wonders

In the Disney movie “Aladdin,” The Cave of Wonders is a forbidden realm filled treasure—gold, jewels, precious artifacts and the iconic golden genie lamp. Aladdin is able to enter the cave because his “worth lies far within”—the diamond in the rough.
This collaboration between Scallywag Supply Co. and The Pin Wizard has a moving jaw that locks into place. The heavy, double thick enamel pin measures 1.5” long while closed and 1.75” long while open. The Cave of Wonders comes in two color variants: purple (“Arabian Moon”) and blue (“Arabian Night.”) Each has raised gold plating, is covered with gold glitter and is back stamped with “2018” and the artists’ logos. The pin has a double clutch to help support the heft of this weighty design. All of the pins available through Scallywag Supply have sold out, but, The Pin Wizard reported on Instagram earlier today that there are still some Arabian Night Cave of Wonder pins available at the Pin Wizard website.
The pin is $25.
