Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

If there is one thing we do not need more of but are constantly coveting, it’s themed tiki mugs. Seriously, we’re running out of shelf space. But then here comes Tikiland Trading Co., and their newest offerings.

Perhaps you’ve seen their ads on facebook featuring some fabulous Disney-themed tiki offerings, like The Beachcomber Bombardier (based on Disney’s “The Rocketeer“), or The Enchanted Tiki Room stars Rosita and Jose. There was also the Cannibal of Doom (based on the fertility idol from “Raiders of the Lost Ark” which of COURSE we nabbed right away), and the Keiki Bob (based on “The Mandalorian” breakout star Baby Yoda).

This brings us to this pair of Haunted Mansion-inspired mugs, designed by Jeff Granito. (This is a collaboration between TikiLand Trading Co., Tiki tOny, and Granito Designs. Designed in California.)

‘HURRY BACK’ GHOSTLY BRIDE TIKI MUG

While this ghostly bride may have been left 6ft under… at the altar… she’s back, and she’s got an axe to pick. Her bridal gown, covered in a beautiful tapa design, suggests that her vows were to be exchanged somewhere in the South Pacific, but clearly something didn’t go as planned. This tiki mug will be made of white porcelain, with glazed accents emphasizing her ‘glowing aura’. Add in a couple glowing cubes and you may see our ghostly bride actually glow!

This mug is also available individually here.

‘CALLING ALL SPIRITS ‘ TIKI MUG BOWL

Spirits fill the tiki bar
beckoning those from near and far.
Form a circle round the bowl,
And summon the otherworldly soul,
whose haunting visage we hope to spy
Inhabiting a float nearby

Has a guest arrived that you didn’t invite,
an otherworldly being that’s out at night?
Someone’s sipping more than their share.
When Calling on Spirits you best beware!

This tiki mug bowl will be glazed black with blue/aqua accents emphasizing it’s otherworldly properties. Beverage of your choosing will fill the bowl, surrounding the center portion where the float will reside. The top of the float will have a “garnish bowl” which you can fill with whatever you choose.
