Dark Horse: Emily the Strange Playing Cards

24 Feb

Black Diamonds! Being alone suits Emily the Strange, so playing solitaire under a full moon is just as satisfying as playing Fifty-two Pick Up or Go Fish with her kitty posse. Between you and me . . . they tend to cheat. Creepified Emilyesque hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs are strewn throughout a deck of playing cards, good for both playing tricks and telling (mis)fortunes. Here’s what you get: high quality playing cards with red edges packaged in a clear plastic box decorated with your favorite girl in black.” ~ Dark Horse

Emily the Strange is an advertising mascot character by Rob Reger for his company Cosmic Debris Etc. Inc. She first appeared on Santa Cruz Skateboards professional skater Ross Goodman’s skateboard graphics. Nathan Carrico designed Emily in 1991 for Santa Cruz Skateboards in Santa Cruz, California.
