This months colorway is based on one of the film posters for Son of Frankenstein. It features heavy green and yellow accents and a lot of black. We gave it an Undercover Otter twist by using heavy neons and a royal sprinkling of black dye. This colorway reminds me of the warm days leading up to spring. And then it gets all dreary and grey again...

Inspiration: Dracula (1931) - Base shown: Squirm - Colorway Name: Renfield

When thinking about vampires, I automatically default to red, black and white. The paleness of the unliving’s skin, the sleek darkness of Bela Lugosi’s widows peak and the rich red satin that lines the inside of his cape....

Well, that and arteries being opened left, right and center and sidekicks being brainwashed into doing their masters bidding. February’s Igor skein is called Renfield and I’ve based it on the aftermath of a good old bloodbath. That fine arterial spray in which you can frolic like a festive creature of the night.

Also included is an Otter Pup in our Killer Tomatoes colorway, because we all need a little extra lifeblood sometimes.

Inspiration: Frankenstein (1931) - Base shown: Singularity - Colorway Name: Fritz

Inspiration: Frankenstein (1931) - Base shown: Singularity - Colorway Name: Fritz 

Based on the make-up design Jack Pierce created for the creature and worn by Boris Karloff. 

Karloff endured hours of preperation under Pierce's hand each day, during which time his head was built up with cotton, collodion and gum. Green greasepaint was applied to his face and hands, because on black and white film, this stands out as white. The creature was never meant to be ‘green’, this was just a case of cinematic practicality, making Karloff look as white as a corpse with all blood drained out of him on the black and white film that was used in 1931.

The make-up was kept a secret for the longest time, even from cast members, so the shock would be as genuine as possible. 

The finished product is universally acclaimed, and has since become the commonly accepted visual representation of Mary Shelley's creation.
