ECCC takes place at the Washington State Convention Center starting Friday March 28th through Sunday March 30th. We’re in booth 2812 on the 3rd floor and we can’t wait to meet you. So, stop by, take a picture, buy a Unicorn Horn and grab some stickers!

Let’s go watch the Meat Parade

Archie McPhee is happy to announce we’re releasing our very first single, Meat Parade!

Watch the teaser music video here:

While this video features only a portion of the song, it shows the full meat parade in action. The limited edition vinyl single looks like a beautifully marbled ham steak. Only one thousand produced!

Neighborhood Watch

neighborhood watch

A pair of our Giant Googly Eyes have been installed in front of a home in Snohomish County, Washington. They make a great addition to the town’s Neighborhood Watch group. Skulking scoundrels are sure to think twice about getting up to no good on a street where even the shrubbery is watching them.

In praise of the Pigeon Mask

We created a new blog to celebrate our Pigeon Mask and the awesome people who choose to wear it, making the world a more fun and interesting place.

Know your googly eyes

We had a problem around the office. Now that we have three sizes of Googly Eyes for sale, how do we display them in a way that people will understand which googly is which?

The picture above is the first thing that popped into our heads. On the tree you see Giant Googly Eyes (7″ diameter). The pig is wearing our Big Googly Eyes (3″ diameter). The toast has been personified using Emergency Googly Eyes (1/2″ to 1-3/16″ diameter). 

As soon as we come up with something better, we’ll post it.

Slicey the Pig comes to life

One of the highlights of the Halloween season is the entire Archie McPhee store staff dressing up in different costumes for an entire week leading up to (and including) Halloween itself. There have been many truly great costumes over the years. (You can peruse a few years’ worth via the store’s Flickr account: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and of course this year: 2012)

Halloween 2012 is still a few days away, but we’ve already seen a costume that is sure to go down in Archie McPhee history as one of the best. It’s as hilarious as it is frightening. Behold the wonder that is Dan’l dressed up as Slicey the Pig Dashboard Wiggler, the only pig who is so eager for you to taste how delicious he is, he’s already carving himself up for you:

We’ve even got video of Dan’l standing in the street in front of the store, merrily slicing away at himself for passing cars:

Many customers were creeped out and children terrified, so as far as we’re concerned, mission accomplished. Happy Halloween! Who wants some bacon?
