Small Monsters.

Video production update: preparing to shoot.

Scarecrows at midnight.

One night, while I was fooling around with bits of stuff, small monsters began to assemble themselves. Before I realized what was happening, I was outnumbered.

The long view.

And, like the Morning After, the video project crawls toward its end, not daring to look back.

Happy haunts!

 


 

Halloween Surprise.

What a curious congregation.  What Devil’s work is this?

“We are gathered here,”

“On this hallowed night,”

“to join two spirits, who have long been separated,”

“in eternal matrimony.” 

“That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain. . . .”

Reading in red.

This post is a preview of a short–very short–attempt at a video. The learning curve to “doing it all” is a steep hill with sharp rocks at the bottom. But, real fun usually has an element of danger, so the bumps, bruises and broken feelings are just part of the roller coaster haunted house ride.

Happy haunting.

End.

 

Jack o’ Lantern

I often have left over spray or hard foam from a large project.

01/2017 It is never too early to start Halloween!

I dislike wasting materials or time.

The “leftover” extra raw foam I put to use getting a start on smaller projects like this Jack o’ Lantern. Jack will become the head of a scarecrow by September. Also, it is almost impossible to create a Halloween type project without becoming excited for the witching season all over again. Benefits all around!

End.

Halloween Mini-Monsters

Gee, Uncle Dark Oak, why don’t you ever make something for us?

 

Two little nieces, both deserving to be spoiled to the limit and who know more about horror

Broken Bonds. And, hungry!

movies than this old man, asked for some “horribles.”

Halloween was shuffling at a deceptively fast pace toward me. I grabbed some sticks and glue and got busy.

I managed to snap these shots before sending the creations off to the girls.

 

These were fun to make. Perhaps one day I will have time to indulge myself and make more of these little wall-hangers.

Crazy lil’ winged thing. I cheated and used a store-bought skull.

God, I love Halloween.
