Illustrator Ed Harrington’s quirky take on some of Hollywood’s most famous horror film characters is the perfect parody to get you in the mood for Halloween. Harrington created a series of mock IKEA instructions for each character, cleverly incorporating the story line into the pretend how-to pamphlet.
Instructions are complete with step-by-step diagrams for how to achieve your very own Edward Scissorhands or Alien with an easy-to-follow guide. These films have been out for some time now and even those who haven’t seen them are probably at least somewhat aware of the plot and story points; however, for those who are averse to even the tiniest possibility of a spoiler, be forewarned. A few key details are revealed in the set of illustrations.
Ed Harrington is clearly a fan of the mash up, judging by the abundance of genre and story crossing illustrations. The Ron Swanson/Iron Man combo is a particular favorite of ours.
