“It was said that the veil between this world and the next was at its thinnest on the night of All Hallows Eve.”

Welcome to the Order of the Thinned Veil!

   We are a society of like-minded individuals who choose to live our lives steeped in the legends, lore and customs of Halloween. What does that mean? Well, for us Halloween is anything but just a day in October, it is a lifestyle and a lens by which we view the world around us.

The Order of the Thinned Veil is a tiered style of membership for the year. There are three levels of membership and each has it’s own set of perks such as exclusive artwork, a newsletter, certificates, contests and invitations to special events!   

 Members will also have access to exclusive items available ONLY to current Order of the Thinned Veil members.

 Additionally,  members will engage in the cermonial planting of their own pumpkins to eventually carve into Jack O’Lanterns with included seeds. This will be an OTV community event! (More details forthcoming!)  

Options for membership are as follows and are a ONE TIME FEE. This is NOT a recurring monthly subscription. Once you sign up, you’re a member for the year!

  • “With Help From Those Who Went Before” Print by Sam Heimer. “Celebrating the disappearing but once wold-wide customs of calling on the spirits of the deceased for guidance, protection, and good fortune during harvest and hard times. Much like the melting-pot gypsy culture we associate the seance and fortune-telling with, Halloween draws from many of these old-world customs, and what may seem like parlor games and party tricks have deep roots in serious practices.” Printed on high quality glossy cardstock (5×7)

  • “Lantern Jack” Wall Plaque by Jason McKittrick- The pumpkin-headed revenant told of in New Jersey legends. Cast in solid resin and individually hand painted. Comes ready to hang with attached metal latch. (4.5″ x 5.5″)
