Not into zombies myself, though I have seen VHS 2, and the zombie segment was better than most. It was fun to see the guy who did those effects show how they’re done.
This Sunday, I have my monthly meeting with the local haunters group. It’s supposed to be the last meeting before the haunt season begins, but I think we’re already there. My social media is starting to flood with prop-building posts. The Halloween boards are already full of “when do you start decorating?”
My Halloween will be small-scale this year. We will likely be in the middle of moving house, so I’m hardly going to build for a yard I’ve never seen. I do plan on making things for a Month of Spookdays. I’ve been doing a lot of portraits lately for a sekrit project. Perhaps for October I will paint something monstrous.
It is a fine, cool morning here in Maryland, and promises to be a fine, hot day later. I am not a Halloweeniac who eschews summer. Summer is a time of anticipation. If we had Halloween year round, it would become ordinary. For me, Halloween prep starts in August. Just a few short days away!
I don’t normally go for playing cards, but I couldn’t resist pitching in on this Kickstarter:
A couple of coins popped up this week. I wish the bat coin weren’t $100!
The Dark Exact is the shop of Coleman Stevenson, a Portland, Oregon based artist.
I dig her style, and am itching to add her Tarot to the collection. The shop has a few different augury kits, plus scents, and other odds and ends.
And how cool is a matchbox ritual kit? That’s a stocking stuffer for all your witchy friends.
