A lot of pictures on this site were hosted on Photobucket before they disabled photo embedding. If you'd like to see pictures for a particular post, please let me know, and I'll prioritize getting those images fixed next!

Not like I need another witch (especially considering there won't be a haunt next year), but she'll be animatronic (of course that justifies it!). We're talking moving eyes, eyebrows, lips, eyelids, articulated hands...yeah, it's gonna be awesome.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake...

Attack of the 2009 Photos!

I didn't actually take any pictures this year (again...) but I've been taking stills from the 2+ hours of HD video I shot.
Here's the first batch...I'll be getting the video up in a few weeks

3-Axis Zombie Completed

Let's get you up to date with this guy...
I finished sculpting and prepared the mold walls...
...and started layering on the plaster
First the front half, then remove the dividing wall, coat with vaseline, back half, then separate them...
Then I made a core...
and finally did a pull in foam latex...
Lastly (at least, until I decide whether he'll get some sparse grey hair), ol' Zombie got an airbrush job with rubber cement paints
Not too shabby for a last minute job

How many stakes does it take to haunt a yard?
This many:

Decommissioned: 1 virus-ridden laptop (I call it the Schlaptop), 1 dead-bulb projector

Happily, replacements were found at the last minute.

Regrettably, I didn't get very many pictures of the haunt at all this year. The good news, however, is that I got over 2 hours of HD video. The bad news is that I got over 2 hours of HD video...yay editing...

2009 was an incredible success. I'll be posting all the projects that were completed in that last frantic month and the final haunt video over the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
