Doesn't that just SOUND like me?
Anyway, if you've been following me for some time, you know one thing I REALLY hate is to leave something undone.
From the mad scientist lab when I was 8 (redone some 25 years after the initial concept), to redoing "The Orchard" portion of our Harvest theme 3 times before I was happy with it.
I felt that 2015 really finally nailed down the Harvest theme, and it's now time to move on.
However, moving on to something that needs to mesh well with the Harvest for the pumpkin carving party...
I was recently forced to go back through every one of my photo albums, and stumbled on a concept from early 2007.
This concept was semi-abandoned and at the time morphed into the headhunter/field of skulls we did up to 2010.
Originally, however, I was taken with the stories of Baba Yaga. The Bone Mother.
Fences made of bones, and skulls providing the lighting.
I even made an attempt really early in 2007 before going with the torches and impaled skulls.
I really wanted these to be the primary source of lighting, and at the time I just couldn't figure a way to get that accomplished, so we moved to the torches and left this concept buried somewhere in the recesses of my mind.
My wiring skills, and available lighting have both come a ways since 2007.
In fact, I actually have a fairly decent way of lighting that can be rather easily modified to be put in skulls...
But there was still the matter of how to build "the Bone Mother", and how to make the cobbled masses of bones the skulls sit on.
This song's been stuck in my head for the last few months trying to answer THAT.
