Strife Preview

Putting the finishing touches on my new prop, "Strife". Couldn't wait to post a picture, so here is a little preview.

Random Thought

One thing I have noticed from horror movies is that if you get naked, you will usually die within a few minutes. So keep your clothes on if you want to live.

Friday the 12th

My wife got me a shirt with this on it for Father's Day... I usually try to stay away from most of these shirts, but might have to wear this one.

I was wondering if "Thanks" is the proper response for when someone says "You're going to Hell, you know" after looking at your Halloween work.

First 2009 prop in progress

I finally got around to starting my first prop today. I hope it will come out the way I am seeing it in my mind, I drew a sketch of what I wanted it to look like but it is already morphing into something completely different. It's a scarecrow type prop with a lot of influences from... who else... Pumpkinrot. I hope I am able to do his work some sort of justice with this prop, which is kind of borrowing several ideas from several different props. I don't think it will be too hard or take too long to complete, but I don't want to post any pictures until it is just right. Hopefully I'll have some up in about a week or so.

I keep wanting to use the word "Pumpkinrotish", maybe we can all get that one into the dictionary one of these days.

Friday the 13th on DVD

I finally got around to watching the new Friday the 13th movie the other day. I have to say it was pretty disappointing. I don't know why I was expecting anything other than that since it seems like most of these remakes have been the same lately. Oh well, at least all the annoying characters died.

The creative juices are finally flowing, and I'm about to start working on some new props starting Friday. I've been sketching some ideas, and making plans for this years haunt as they come to me. I'll just say that it's going to be a lot darker this year, which will be fitting for the name I have come up with. I shot some video of last years haunt, but never got around to putting it together and posting it. I hope to make a video for that haunt, and make a really good one for this year too. I'm only about six months behind schedule, but still think I will be able to pull off good things. Our new baby will probably be arriving sometime around the middle of October, so the haunt is going to have to be sort of low maintenance this year, but I still think it is going to be the best one yet. It feels good to be excited again.

Pinkerton FX

A friend of mine sent me a link to this place, and I thought they had some pretty cool looking work. It's a little cartoonish, but the more I look at some of it the more I like it.

I really like this "Horseman Skull".
