If you've read this blog for a while, you might remember me gushing about The Order of the Thinned Veil, a Halloween club that offers tiered memberships and exclusive art as part of their packages. Founded by artists and Halloween lovers Jason McKittrick and Sam Heimer, The Order of the Thinned Veil has entered its third year and has just unveiled its 2019 membership packages. You can choose from three different tiers of membership, and all come with some truly gorgeous artwork and sculptures. Check out details on the ghoulish goodies below:
