Pumpkins, the iconic symbol of Halloween, have been taken to another level. Meet PumpkinStein! Farmer Tony Dighera designed a plastic mold that the pumpkins grow in, in order to take on the monsterous shape. Check out the article about his journey to creating a monster!

This weekend I completed a very impromptu prop, that I've been refering to as Annabelle Lee. She's just one of the many ghosts that will be in the cemetery this year. Besides a minor adjustment that I want to make, I'm really happy with the way that she came out and I'm really enjoying working with chicken wire and cheese cloth. It's relatively inexpensive and the fact that it's light weight is another plus AND the effect is really great.
That's easy... Mother Nature. While she's blessing us with cooler temps and beautifully colored leaves, she's also known for weather mood swings. This weekend, she blasted my little part of the world with intense winds. Granted, it's always windy/breezy in October but I've never experienced wind like we had yesterday in the 6 years that we've done the haunt. Yesterday, I was having a full blown panic attack, because we had just set up our huge entrance way the day before.

The Countdown Stone shenanigans have begun. All that I can say is that retaliation will be sweet. I have a few ideas for catch back, but if any of my Halloween friends have ideas for non-violent retaliation, they'd be welcomed >=)
