    I am trying to figure out a way to reuse some of my old stuff and make it work with a carnevil theme. You've given me some great ideas!

    Wow! The artwork in this thread is amazing. Definitly an honor to be amongst you all. Most people know me as KillerPumpkins, which is aproject of mine based on a art and story. It's not about Halloween but the art sure lends itself to it though. I am now focusing on new directions with my art and style and am really enjoying it. Here are a few examples below.

    Found this online..crazy stuff: Mark Branch Mark Branch was an 18 year old grocery store clerk with an avid interest in slasher films. As the clerk at Video Expo 1 in Greenfield put it later: “He rented strictly gore, period. The gorier, the better.” He was particularly entranced with the Friday the 13th series, and its machete-wielding protagonist, Jason Vorhees. Some might have called it an obsession. Perhaps that’s the way it might have been described by Sharon Gregory, a freshman...

    I'm definitely having major burnout, but I think it has less to do with Halloween and more that a million changes are happening for me & people I know. Usually by now I'm knee deep in ornaments and holiday food plans. So far, I've put up one ornament and a bit of tinsel. :/ I hope I perk up after the new year. I usually feel energized by my enthusiasm for the holidays, so I would like 2017 to be better in that regard.

    When I was a little girl my Mom would buy kitty panels and sew them for me. I have fond memories as she would sew them with love. I just want to find one more before she passes away and have her sew me one more. If anyone comes across just one panel please let me know. I have searched the net off and on for years. I have found many that are close but not mine. The picture below is the close one BUT I NEED THE ONE THAT IS ALL RED EVEN THE BOW. I will see if my Mom has a scanned pic of "kitty" so...

    Here is what I've done with my Ground Breaking Zombie so far. I got this little guy for $11 on Nov 1st at Spirit. It really sucks and doesn't stand on its own and covered in a very cheap paint that stopped any glue from really sticking to it. To pose him it removed the legs and put 2 pieces of PVC pipes in the bottom so I could mount him in the ground. I then held his arms in place and filled the joints with hot glue. The glue did't stick very well but did act as a space filler to...

    Now their face book page is down. Looks like it's official. Sad. Part of me is a bit pissed in that they could have at least sent a message out to customers saying whats up or that they were retiring, going out of business, etc. rather than just drop off the face of the earth. Oh well. another good vendor out of the mix.

    I'm a face and body artist, and do more "traditional" artwork, too - painting and drawing on paper/canvas, clothing, wood - anything inanimate, really. Here are some of my pieces (some still in progress:)

    I cut the bottom out of the torso. The legs are now sitting separate from her. I have one light up inside her torso. I need to adjust them and figure out how to mitigate annoying bright spots. Admittedly they aren't as apparent in person and it's mostly my camera freaking out but I need to get good pictures of her lit.

    Right there with you. I spend so much time on Halloween in August and September that by the time Halloween gets here, I am ready for it to be over and don't want to look at my workshp for weeks after. But then I eventually get to the point where I am chomping at the bit for August to get here.

    I thought I would do a follow up to this thread for anyone else in the Edmonton, Alberta area who may have been curious where to buy good make up, etc. I discovered a place called "The Theatre Garage" in Edmonton. I purchased some good quality make up, translucent powder and setting/sealer spray from Ben Nye, some Pros Aide adhesive and Pros Aide remover as well as a pair of custom fit fangs. All the products were good quality and it made a big difference in how good the make up looked...

    Did you ever get an answer? I too was hoping Mike would make this open source, or at least provide a download. I have Microsoft Visual Studio and Embarcadero RAD Studio, so changes are if he zipped up the project, I could play with it. Might be cool to see what others could add and take some load off him. Perhaps make an 8 channel version or support other controllers.

    I think that it is just a symptom of spending every waking moment in preparation for the big night. Then after everything is said and done you are left with having to pack every thing away and are also wondering why Halloween night didn't last longer. I know I always felt burnt out after Halloween at least for a few weeks and think it's fairly common occurrence among haunters. About the time spring rolls around though I always forgot about how exhausted I was last season and begin to go right...

    Same old story, another year. Halloween was fun but tiring (of course!) Then it drops off quickly as the cold weather arrives almost nobody, then, if the weather is really unpredictable nothing, no one at all....but then again, Winter weather showed up much sooner than i wanted to see it (Shovel it, sweep it) and more work outside could not get done. AGAIN! (Grrr!) My neighbor bought an old "Winnebago" type motor home, it quit running, it got abandoned in front of our house for a while, but...

    Wow, that was an impressive haunt! I thought you might still be basking in the glory of a job well done, but I see from your other posts you're already working on next year! Can't wait to see what you come up with - keep on scaring!

    Love the Magic Mirror! It's a nice set up you have for it in the doorway. But it sounds like it will be much easier to set it all up at your place next year. Your TOT fan base at home will grow once they get to see the mirror in action!

    Yes by a good friend of mine! They are sculpted out of clay over shiny silver lion head wall sconces. They are getting kind of beat up, which makes them better! I love them, they mean a lot to me!
