What's In The Box?! 2022 - Thir13en Ghosts [PRE-ORDER]

1.301,00 kr
This pre-order ships in the second week of September, 2022.

Halloween is the best holiday there is. Ghosts, ghouls, goblins—and an indie dyer that fits into at least two of those three categories—are inviting you to join this festival of Macabre Misfits with our biyearly 'What’s in the Box?!'-Box.

The Yarn:

This year we are launching a luxury yarn base: Dusk Sock.
A deliciously soft and sturdy yarn, made up of 70% Superwash Merino, 20% Yak and 10% Nylon.
Thanks to the yak fibers, Dusk Sock has a beautiful heathered base color, similar to our Eventide yarns. Dyeing Dusk Sock is an amazing adventure. The colors come out vibrant and rich, while having that luxurious flavor of a heathered yarn base. 

Our 'What’s in the Box?!'-Box will feature 13 mini skeins, of 20 grams each, with a running length of 80 meters. 

'WHAT’S IN THE BOX!?'-Box 2022 Includes:

  • 13 x a 20 gram mini skein in our brand new Yak Sock base;
  • Information on all the colorways and what inspired them;
  • Little gifts to aid you in your crafting needs;
  • Early access to our October Shop Update (including the all new Dusk Sock base!);
  • 20% discount code redeemable on your next order (also valid on the October update!)

Everything in the Box will be ‘Undercover Otter’ flavored (aka: creepy, just like us). 

There will be a shop update with our Dusk Sock base in 100 gram skeins at the beginning of October 2022. 
If you pre-order the 'What’s in the Box?'-Box, you get early access to the October shop update and a 20% discount code.

The Inspiration:

Thirteen Ghosts Movie Poster (c) Dark Castle Entertainment

This year we’re getting our inspiration from the 2001 horror movie Thir13en Ghosts. It’s an underappreciated—accidental—masterpiece (and homage to the original Thirteen Ghosts, released in the 50s). If you want to know why, you’ve come to the right place. 

In Thirteen Ghosts we follow widower Arthur Kriticos (played by Tony Shaloub, pre-Monk fame) who inherits a house from an uncle he didn’t even know he had (sus, but okay).
With a plethora of outstanding bills and overdue payments, Arthur sees no other option than taking the gamble. He packs up the entire family and goes to check out their sweet new digs.
On arrival, some ‘interested parties’ join them, all with their own reason to seek entrance to the Kriticos mansion. That’s when things go awry and we’re treated to some delicious tropes like occult books and ominous chanting.

I have to give a shout out to the ever exceptional Matthew Lillard. He ‘Lillards’ the absolute f*ck out of this movie. It’s glorious and makes the movie so much better than it has any right to be.

As you’d expect from an early 2000’s horror movie, this film is chock full of cliches and special effects (both digital and practical). Some hold up, some definitely don’t. Thirteen Ghosts rehashes the late 90s and early 2000s B-horror vibe, while desperately wanting to become a smash hit. It never became a cinematic masterpiece, but there is so much about this movie that is perfect, and I need to share my love for it.

We are basing all 13 otter pups (20 gram mini skeins) on the titular ghosts from this movie. Pulling information from their backstories and combining them with the on screen visuals. 

The official Trailer for the movie: 

What's up with this box thing?
In previous years, we did a ‘count down/advent’ system, in which you got to open something every day. For this year’s installment, when you open your box, all the goodies will be available to you. Making this a huge unboxing party on whichever day you choose to treat yo’self.
How does shipping work?
Destination and weight of the box is what we use to calculate shipping. The boxes will ship in the second week of September so they have enough time to arrive for Halloween.
If you order additional items with your 'What’s In The Box?!'-Box, these will ship out together with your pre-order. If you want to receive your additional items sooner than that, please place two separate orders. 

How is Tax handled?
Undercover Otter only charges taxes (Value Added Tax) to customers in the EEA (European Economic Area). If you are shopping from outside the EEA, you do not pay these taxes (unless you’re in the UK. In which case, please check THIS post). All taxes and import charges that occur at the border are your responsibility.

Discount codes are not valid on this Pre-Order. If you have a discount code that is generated through your Creep Coins balance, you can use it.

PS; yes, we know there are ‘technically’ only 12 spirits in Thirteen Ghosts. Just trust us, ok?
