Photos of Halloween Past

Happy Halloween everyone!! I've fallen behind on my Halloween blog posts so here's a little picture from Halloween past.  Ok, so maybe it's that old, but it's still a good one.  This is a picture of my sister, my brother and me before we headed to our Halloween party.

Happy October 1st!!!

Happy October 1st everyone ... If only I could make Halloween my full time job, then I'd have time to do so much more.  Alas, I must work with what I have ...

So moving on ... Here are The Count's Brides (isn't he a lucky fella) ... well their heads at least.  I used this papier mache type clay that my brother made.  It was a little hard to work with but it still served its purpose.  These fine ladies will be behind a sheer curtain so details aren't too important.  I hope to finish them this weekend as well as the rest of the house. 

Happy Halloween!

The Count has hair!

Well I couldn't take it anymore. Seeing The Count's bald head was just too unbearable, so I went to JJ's Party House and bought him some hair. Ah, yes. That's much better. He also now has a body and some clothes. I'm just waiting for the animated hands I ordered to come in. I can't wait, I think it will actually look like he's playing the piano. I guess I should give him some pants too lol. But I think, time wise, everything is going smoothly. Can't wait for those hands to come in!

Happy Halloween planning :)

The Count ... update

Well here he is ... painted. Now isn't he a stud of a vampire :) He's still a work in progress but everyday he seems to come more and more to life. I can't wait for them to start filling the stores with Halloween products ... The Count needs some hair!

Halloween ^_^

Halloween is just around the corner and I can hardly contain myself! As you can see, this is my favorite time of the year. ^_^ I've been thinking and planning props since June. :: tee hee :: And I'm really excited, I'm almost done with The Count's head. And who is the count you might ask. Well he is my main vampire prop. He will be sitting at our piano this year playing some eerie tunes. Like I said, I'm almost done with his head. I painted it last night and started work on his body. I just need to wait for the Halloween season to officially start so I can find just the right wig to complete his look. Also, I thought it might be fun to hand-make some vampire trophies for our Halloween party. So, always making my life more difficult, I decided to make 5 trophies out of the same clay I used to make The Count. I started on the "Best Female Costume" award last night and I'm pretty happy with how it's coming out. I'll post some pics of her soon.

Halloween is almost here ... I can feel it coming ... and I can't wait!

Happy Haunting!
