Halloween Countdown 2017: Doombuggy Maintenance Technician Costume!!

I had dearly hoped to have a Halloween party this year, but…it just wasn’t in the cards. To make up for it, our friends Kenny and his son Kent had us come over this past weekend for a Halloween-ish get-together. We worked on costume and craft projects and watched Harry Potter movies (which always seem to be on TV whenever we go to their house) and had good food and fun.

Usually they set me up in front of the tv with a table, since I am almost always drawing. Right here we were watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (the best, as far as I’m concerned) and I was catching up on my Drawlloween entries.

Kenny and Kent went all-out on the decor; note the Darth Vader pumpkin as the centerpiece, R2-D2 brownie and light saber pizza cutter. šŸ˜€

Halloween Countdown 2017: Skull Excavation Kit!

Target, in my opinion, really knocks it out of the park most years at Halloween. I love discovering all the small toys and inexpensive little trinkets that are put out by the shops at Halloween, and Target’s dollar section at the front of the store did not disappoint this year. I found these “Excavation Kits”, some with skulls and some with two different tombstone designs, to save to play with later for this blog. And so today, because I’ve had kind of a crappy day and I want to pound things into dust, let’s get on with our excavation!

The packaging is great. I bought an extra one to hang on my wall of tiny weird toys.

Halloween Countdown 2017: The One-Eyed Halloween Beast!

One Eye Beast 2017

 

Here is the One-Eyed Halloween Beast for this year, and what a beauty. She is made from a giant yellow pompom, one bloodshot wiggle eye, a felt set of eyelashes I had lying around, a hair bow, and I cut up a Publix shopping bag with my pinking shears for her limbs. It’s a little tradition I started a couple of years ago, and as I expected, I’ve run out of room for my growing family of creations.

I have christened her Beauxdacious.

See last year’s here!

Halloween Countdown 2017: Koorven der Poompkin!

Sorry, had an attack of Swedish Chef-itis, there…. Woohoo, folks, I picked out a wee pumpkin from a “patch” I went to on Friday, and at last I had a chance to carve it today!
