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. 😀
I am SERIOUSLY jealous of that tablecloth.

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!

Halloween Countdown 2017: Little One-Eyed Dolly from Smeddley!

I gots a present!20170918_171814.jpg

My pal Smeddley and I exchange small gifts on occasion; I send her rubber ducky items, she knits adorable little toys for my Collection of One-Eyed Monsters. I think she simply knits in her spare time and needs a project to complete on occasion and asks me what I would like. This one was a total surprise until she asked me if I liked the ears. I said “sure”, and the next thing I knew, an adorable cyclops dolly arrived in the mail! Thanks, Smedd!!

 

Halloween Countdown 2017: The Haunted Archery Tournament!

Our dear pal Kenny used to be an archery instructor at a school. He was kind enough to send me some photos(and permission to use them) of the time he turned an indoor archery tournament into something  delightfully macabre with some building and crafting knowhow.

Grave Yard

I think that wall waaaay down at the far end is the area with the targets that the kids would shoot. I love these adorable little wood cutout ghosts!
They kinda look like they have beards.

 

Guillotine 2

This is so awesome…Kenny enthusiastically described this guillotine he made in a doorway, complete with robed executioner and bloody heads rolling out of a basket!!

 

Kenny & Kent

Kenny and his son Kent(also our friend) in their costumes for the event.
Says Kenny:  “I did a basic Steampunk costume and  Kent was Red Arrow. The shoot took place in Conyers at the county annex building.”
