Ever since I was a kid and saw the advertisements for Creepshow on HBO, Fluffy has always been a character that equally fascinated and terrified me.
Plus, he was kind of cute so I've always wished they would have made a stuffed animal of him!
This actually brings me to a topic that still amazes me to this day. About four years ago, my friend Jack Morrissey contacted me on my old (now defunct) Flickr account after he noticed my Creepshow/"The Crate"-inspired Lego homage. He said he was also a huge fan of the film, specifically of Fluffy (the nickname of the Yeti-type creature that was featured in "The Crate" segment). We started corresponding over the next few years and would send each other Fluffy-related memorabilia and artwork.
Here are a few items from my collection:

|Close-up of Fluffy model kit. Amazing detail.|
|Full shot of Fluffy model kit. Who WAS Julia Carpenter anyway?|
|Another Fluffy model kit. He looks so cute here! Well. Except for the blood.|
|Fluffy mask. No, I haven't worn it. Yet.|
|Another painting by Nicolas Caesar.|
P.S. The eyes you see in the masthead at the top of this blog belong to Fluffy. It's a screenshot from Creepshow.
