It appears the teeming millions are getting restless and have moved on to outright taunting and casting disparaging remarks on the lack of output this month. Normally I would give some elaborate excuse as to why I’ve been negligent from my duties all in an effort to mask likely pure laziness. Fortunately, in this particular case I’ve just been really busy. The first part of this month was dedicated to the Annual Halloween Party and the days since them has been either spent on my day (often leaking into nights as of late) job or processing hundreds of photos for this and upcoming posts. In an effort to prevent burning effigies figured it was time to get something out…I don’t want to here anything about nightmares out there.. you demanded a post.. I picked this one!
If you are like me, you are probably looking for another pair of shorts about now. Before you grab your AR’s and head into the woods, I should assure you this menace is just a decoration. Anyone that has been a reader of this blog in the month of October know I enjoy Halloween even more than Christmas. Each year we have our Annual Halloween Party and along with it usually comes a homemade decoration to add to the collection. A popular part of our party is the Haunted Trail (link here). Each year it gets bigger and bigger and each year my additions get more elaborate. This year was a big year for new designs. This killer clown was one of two for this year – yes, you will get to see the other one in an upcoming post. Here’s a night shot from the trail .. damn, this thing still scares me every time I look at it. Thought it would provide some therapy to get over my phobia .. failed
Hit the jump if you want to see how I went about making this decoration. The best part of this is that it gives me an easy platform to produce new additions for years to come. There were three goals going in – “scare-ability”, “pose-ability” and “storage-ability”. Think I hit this one out of the park!
