Twisted Tuesdays: The Tokoloshe

tokoloshe

As I mentioned in a post about Krampus, kids need something to scare the shit out of them to not only get them to not be shitheads, but also because scaring the shit out of kids with stories of supernatural creatures that will get them for misbehaving is a fun tradition we should continue to uphold. It’s healthy for them.

In South Africa, there is a boogeyman/demon-like creature which varies in appearance. Some people say it is like a small hairy human, some say more like a dog, others say it’s a shape-changing vampire spirit…it seems to depend on what their grandmother told them. One thing is for sure, if a kid is being a real pain in the ass in South Africa, then the Tokoloshe will be sure to take their ass away unless they listen to their elders.

But the Tokoloshe doesn’t just terrorize children, it can cause a lot of evil and mischief for adults as well. There are reports of horny Tokoloshe that force themselves on victims, Tokoloshe that steal, and even ones that murder.

I first heard about the Tokoloshe in Die Antwoord’s “Evil Boy” music video. There is a dancing Tokoloshe with a huge dangling cock.

Ninja and Yo-landi made a video with VICE, asking people in their neighborhood about what the Tokoloshe is. They even speak to a witch doctor and a journalist from The Daily Sun to learn more about this mysterious, mischievous monster. The story Ninja tells about his nanny putting bricks under her bed because of the Tokoloshe is creepy.

Africarve made this cool Tokoloshe puppet in case you want to sic them on any brats:

Vanity‚Äôs Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day #29: Witches and Other Supernatural Shit

by Tracy Vanity

I really need to rewatch that movie. I forgot how awesome it is! Angelica Houston is fierce.

As Halloween approaches the Halloween buzzzzzz becomes more and more intense.

It’s that metaphysical energy coursing through the air, something otherworldly is leaking out from The Beyond, ready to makes itself known.

Be it magick, witches, ghosts, goblins, monsters, or anything not of this conscious, mortal world, those who are sensitive to the energy can feel the paranormal rush that comes around this time of year.

I’ve been encountering a lot of witches lately and have been feeling pretty witchy myself even though I never used to believe in such things.

But if you have read or written enough Bizarro, you know that anything and everything is possible.

Speaking of Bizarro, this shit fits right in:

That’s not even the creepypasta video for the day, this one is:

I found that video rather calming. I think it was because of the fire. I feel the same about the sea.

So what’s the Bizarro Posse going to dress up as or what did you dress up as if you partied this past weekend? I’m going to be a dead, slutty Hunter S. Thompson since I’m going to a dead celebrity Halloween party. If you’re still unsure of what to be, here are some costume ideas:

I hope that helps.

2 Days until Halloween, oh shit!
