    Well, it was exciting while it lasted, eh? And it's better than a dead pet. Your pumpkins will have to be your treasure for now, I guess. :)

    Nice start! It's developing well, and I'm anxious to see it finished.

    Oh, an Abby of the Undead could be really creepy! I love the idea! A background of Gregorian chants, the herbalist with his poisons, the tended cemetery--- If you decide to do it, I hope you'll share lots of pictures! I never got to Vatican City (one of many reasons to return?) It sounds great! The Capuchin crypt brought this crypt back to mind. It has far less creepiness factor, but the fact that it's Santa's grave gives it some impact. Sailors from Bari grabbed St. Nicholas' skeleton,...

    It looks like you have Curlew, Black-necked Stilt, and Avocet, among others. Nice! I struggle for sharp auto-focus, too, but mine is because of dust inside the lens. I need to get it cleaned, but it never seems the right time to let go of it for a couple weeks. So the non-conservationists had their way? I know there was a zoo-escaped flamingo that lived by himself on the lake for many years. A group wanted to bring in some South American buddies and potential mates for him and...

    Hmm, that is a dilemma! If it is a pet, it might have been buried shallowly if the ground was dry and hard at the time, or if the ground was deeply frozen and only thawed a little below the surface from a bit of sunshine. I hope you find someone to give it a look! I'm curious now.

    I got 5 pots planted out today, during the brief break in the rain. I have lots more to do, but at least it's a start. If you start your seeds in ground and your vines take off some way you don't want, it's pretty easy to guide them around and train them in a different direction.

    Oh, I've a children in peril prop planned, but it's not gory, and it's far-fetched enough to be goofy rather than disturbing. I'll try to get it wrapped up soon.

    Now I feel really weenie for just having a Boris Karloff mask! I agree wholeheartedly about monkeys being creepy beasts. The really scary ones are the ones that don't fear people. I watched macaques literally mugging people at the Penang Botanical Gardens. Clearly anyone with food is in danger, but beyond that, anyone carrying anything interesting looking-- bag, water bottle-- better stay close to other people! They will take your stuff, and if you try to defend it, they will attack. You...

    I'm just skipping the gore ones! lol You called it, BlueFrog-- my Orang is a Reborn. It's a factory job, so it's not got the multi-layered detail the pros achieve-- using 200 different colors, painting veins and then painting over them. In dim light, the presentation is every bit as good, plus it's like $700 cheaper!

    Yep! That was one of the props I found as well. Eek!! LOL Now THIS one I could use. Minimal gore. Plenty of scare. At FrightProps. THIS is the prop the candle shoppe needs in the cage. Not the zombies! ROFL However, this one by Distortions is too hardcore for me. This is not for the faint of heart. Don't LOOK unless you are one of the horror minded. ;) I must say. The artistry and detail is ahmazing!!

    To your post about a mishmash laboratory ooojen, I have to agree. The one I am planning is just going to cross a few generations and themes. Back to the monkey experiment lab. I had recently researched animated ape in a cage prop and was BLOWN AWAY. Yipes. There are some fantastic (and gory) animated props along those lines. Wow. Now switching channels, here is a small animal cage type prop we made with items from the neighbor's trash. (My neighbor being a church.) The wood,...

    Yes! Yes I am!! :D I am thrilled that folks thought the video interesting. I know I enjoyed my visit there. I have to agree with you. To be honest, I, personally, would have gone either one direction or the other. More haunt-y and fun. OR really seriously creepy and historical. There was SO MUCH to work with from the real backstory. There actually was a great deal of personal tragedy in the doctors life too, that one could have incorporated if you are going with the 'real...

    One more thing---Pictures and descriptions from an auction that took place quite a few years ago. They're lab props from movies, or memorabilia associated with old horror movies. The prices they went for are mostly pretty ridiculous, but they're fun to look at nonetheless. Many of the items wouldn't be that difficult to duplicate, though it would take some expertise to get the arcing and firing some of the props display. http://www.bucwheat.com/julien/julien.htm

    I suspect that if someone made a trip to the museum with glass cutters and a backpack full of Gemmy props, and did a typical packrat act, take one, leave one, the owner might not even notice. It would indeed make a stunningly creepy display if the antique equipment was arranged in the manner of a working lab, and the non-antique stuff was...put in another room. I'd love to see some realistic monkeys or apes in cages, and maybe an instrument tray left just a little too close to one cage...and a...

    There are no guarantees, but putting hot pepper around your plants is said to offer some protection from groundhogs (and other mammals). You have to re-apply it every time it rains. Good luck!

    I didn't scarify any of my pumpkins, but I did the gourds. It speeds them up about 2 weeks on germination. My little pumpkins planted directly in the ground are just barely pushing some dirt upwards, but aren't up yet. I plant them fairly deep because it helps keep the seed coats damp and soft until the cotyledons can break free. Lots of good information here on this thread! I'll add one more thing. If you use peat or paper pots, it's a good idea to either tear away (or fold back) the top...

    I love your work and I'm looking forward to seeing your new witch head corporealized! That's a beauty! (I enjoy your dry humor, too. The vulture post...yeah!)

    Stopped by to say I love the rotted pumpkin head candy holder you're making - the icky rubber "throat" will be great - very unsettling to feel when the kids put their hands in! Also the spindly legs on your spider really ups the arachnophobia creep-out factor. Very cool.
