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!
