The gifts can be flat out Halloween too, I don't have Halloween type Christmas , just a couple of ornaments I use, so your likes list can have all Halloween on it, or a mix of the two. I think the likes thread can just be here, not alot of takers I am sure

Sweet moses Bethene you are conducting another Secret type reaper?? I bow to you woman you are amazing you truly are. I think this sounds great! I will not partake this time but I think you are super woman for taking this very large task on. (Spooki backs out slowly bowing graciously as she does trying her best not to spill her martini or get her boa dirty on the floor :)) YOU GO GIRL YOU ROCK!

I'll have to watch from the sidelines again this time. I hope a lot of people sign up, though...I'm curious to see what people come up with for Halloween/Christmas items!

I'm in. Work is slowing down a little and I have a couple ideas that could work out really well.

Likes: cemetery, tombstones, skulls, skeletons, bats, voodoo, miniature Halloween, pumpkins and JoLs, coffins, a Halloween tree ornament could be cool or unusual Christmas tree ornaments [like Krampus], stuff to dress a witch [working on a full size figure for 2014], classic Halloween, vintage halloween, steampunk, LED candles/tealights, LED taper candles if you can find them, outdoor Halloween décor, LED lighting but not strings of lights, mechanical stuff for animated props, spider web pattern lace cloth, electrical stuff so I can add LEDs to props or make my own non-battery LED spot lights.
OK, this is weirdly specific, but Liquitex soft body acrylic paint in the plastic jars/bottles instead of tubes [I can't find them anymore] black, white, grey, purples, reds, orange, greens, browns are all good colors.

Dislikes/don't need: glitter, cute, cute glitter, Kountry Krafts, traditional Xmas décor, potion bottles, I don't do a lot of indoor decorating for either holiday [just the tree in winter], we don't do any outdoor Christmas décor [snow covers it and ticks me off]

I made lots of editing lol..

yay i will then :)

So first of all.. Ive heard a rumour that there is christmas candycorn! I'm only saying lol.

For this reaper I would love to be all dark christmas! :) I only decorate inside, and like my halloweenpartys i like my decorations kinda dark and mysterious rather than bright and jolly. I tend to do frozen icecold christmas, but I would like to incorporate some dark and twisted ones too :D I also normally bring in nature stuff for christmas decorations. I love primitive stuff, anything with a heavy wintery feel to it. Also anything steampunk, anything punkrock, anything Tim Burton-ish -especially nigthmare before christmas. I love goth, vampires ( not twilight or other pop cultural) I love anything withcy. I think a halloween tree ornament would be cool. For christmas I actually like glitter -well some glitter anyway lol. As in snowflakes, tinsel, sparkly snow..eh thingys.. I tend to keep my sparkly decorations up after christmas, as winter decorations. I like ghosts, and pumpkins, and sculls, and bats, rats, crows etc. Actually mice and birds will be a big part of my decorations this year i think.
I am a gadget girl! Anything that lights up, moves or makes a sound, will make me do the same. I love all sorts of lights!
I love handmade items, and items can be new or used i dont mind either -Theres a lot of gems hidding in peoples attics lol. Alsp look at my pinterest board, for inspiration -this is how i picture stuff i will make for my self -or wish i could make lol.
I am totally stealing the idea of starting a gothic wintervillage. Maybe with some sneaky steampunk elements. Oh that would be so cool. Now i know What i will be doing all december hehe..

Dislikes: Well again -Im quite easy to please :) Im not fond of disney or cutesey stuff, but then again -some level of cute is tolerated, it IS christmas after all :) I dont have children though, but I have pet rats, but they will just eat anything they are given lol. Oh and I dont have a star on my tree, I have a spike, and I dont do any religious symbols for Cristmas - as I actually celebrate the Yuletide, and the winter solstice not the Christmas :D Angels are ok though. Traditional christmas items i wont be using at all.
AND SPIDERS!!!! I HATE SPIDERS, HOW COULD I FORGET!!!!!!! even the cute ones -there NOT cute!

In my contry christmas is all about "nisser" which is a sort of elf /santas helper in litterature, but also a hobbit/dwarflike creature living near the farms in folklore. So my merry victim can expect to get a packet that may contain traces of " nisse" weather you like it or not lol.

Ok and also, i always wanted an ugly christmas sweater. We dont really do them here, but we know of them, with great jealouxy. Not very black halloween I realise that -but maybe theres a black ugly sweater out there somewhere, you never know!

I'm pretty sure I'm going to do this ( 90% sure) but I'm going to hold off on making it official until closer to cut off just to make sure I'm not biting off more than I can chew. Bethene , I will definitely let you know soon. this sounds like fun.
