Age Hath Taken Its Toll . . .

Once upon a time I built monster models from Aurora. One of the latter-day ones was their version of Bride of Frankenstein . . .

 
 

She was supposed to look like the above depictions.

Alas, wear and tear can happen to the best of intentions.  When I first got my Bride model around 1969-1970, it doubtless looked something like the lovely tableau above.

However, 40 years later, this is all that's left of her:

Yep -- no table, no lab.  Not even a left hand!

Next to her is a relic of some 1980s candy packaging.  There were little candies similar to M&Ms that were sold in clear plastic tubes (like oversized test tubes), and this mummy guy was the topper for the tube.

These two relics, along with some others I'll be sharing with you, are kept in the attic in our Halloween stuff for 11 months out of the year.

Who knows what I'll dig up next?  Tune in tomorrow and see!
