Teddy Scare Turned Life-Sized for Terror Behind the Walls
For the past nine years, Applehead Factory design studio has released a special product from their Teddy Scares line of terrifyingly adorable teddy bears just for Terror Behind the Walls at Eastern State Penitentiary. This year, creators Phill Nannay and University of the Arts alum and faculty member Joe Didomenico have released a limited edition 12-inch version of last year’s best seller especially for the haunted attraction.
Available at Eastern State Penitentiary and online, the cuddly, heartbroken “Edwin Morose” comes with wilted black roses, a key, and his heart in a burlap sack. (Check out the original version here). The cute, off-beat gifts each have their own tragic story of being tossed in the trash and left to wander the Earth looking for a new owner, or in Edwin’s case, his soulmate.
Also new this year, Applehead has created a six-foot, life-size Teddy Scare to roam the grounds of Terror Behind the Walls, adding an extra quirk to the spooky setting. Be sure to look out for it this weekend – just don’t expect him to be all warm-and-fuzzy.
