Halloween has begun to take over my studio, and I couldn't be happier! It feels so good to start sculpting pumpkins and skeletons and witches again. It's like being reunited with long lost friends; that is if your friends happen to be pumpkins and skeletons and witches ;)
My first batch of Halloween goodies are going all the way to Pennsylvania to the National Halloween Convention. Check out the web site (one of my pieces is even featured on the Home page!). Spookytime Jingles is going to have a huge display at the convention featuring many of the site's wonderful artists and Chicken Lips will be right there with them.
I SO wish I could go myself to this show! It is full of amazing decorations, special effects, props and some of the most God-awful frightening "Haunted Houses" in the world! This stuff is right up my alley. As a kid, I used to build "Haunted Houses" in my backyard. My parents and neighbors would indulge me by going through them (often times crawling on their hands and knees). Even with my limited budget of what I could afford to buy in the way of props at my local Five and Dime store, I still managed to scare the bejesus out of them! I can only image what I could do with some of the props and decorations available now. Take a look at the web site and see just how far we've come from plastic spiders and glow-in-the-dark paper skeletons!
