Back from the dead!

Also I have resurrected the Occult Baby Head Cup from 2019! This little guy is the perfect vessel for all your sacred spells!

Let’s take a moment to appreciate “Occult”. The perfect gift for that special witch or warlock in your life. This particular Baby Head Cup comes complete with SpellLok TM already installed. Which makes it the perfect vessel for wishes, curses, hopes, and dreams. SpellLok TM has been specially designed to keep spells fresh and supple so when its time to enchant they are as potent as the day you conjured them. The Occult Baby Head Cup is available here!
