Hello interweb friends… I’m alive!
For those that don’t follow me on Facebook, well you should because I tend to update more over there, I have been busy before Christmas with creating a Jack Skellington and Zero for a Christmas Door Decorating Contest. There were three categories Most Traditional, Most Original and Most Tackiest door, then there was a Judges Favorite award as well. I toyed with the idea of doing a Scrooge with the three Ghosts but knew I didn’t have enough time to create 4 full sized bodies, heck I barely was able to get Jack, Zero and the Evil Wreath completed in time. The outcome of the contest? I won Most Original and the group that won Most Traditional also won Judges Favorite…even though numerous people came and told me that ours should have won.
I had thought about telling people they were for sale but didn’t know how well that would fly at work, didn’t want them to say I was moonlighting at work, etc. To my surprise, people asked me instead! So as of tomorrow, they both go to new homes. The lady that bought Jack wanted to buy both Jack and Zero but I had already promised Zero to someone else, so I told her that I would make her another Zero.
I paid the price by making these two guys in 40 hours. My Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is PISSED off. I need to go in and have Physical Therapy, I’m waiting on the Doc’s office to tell me that they faxed the referral over. My Doc’s office seem to take a very long time to do anything. It took them three weeks to get back with me on the results of the MRI on my knee. Good thing I wasn’t fighting cancer and needed to start Chemo right away! The only reason I keep going there is because it is where I use to work. The MRI results? I may have a partial tear of my ACL in my right knee. Have an appointment with an Ortho next week to get my knee evaluated.
Enough of that… Here are a few photos of Jack and Zero:
PumpkinRot has done it again. If I could just pluck out his imagination and meld it with my own… Frightfulish things would occur, at least in my own realm. They are already occurring within his own….
You can find the man of Rot and his darling of a wife, Bean at the following locations:
Yesterday I went out on a photo shoot with Rebecca Belcher to Gateway to Darkness Haunted Attraction. For those of you that don’t know, GtD is the only Pro Haunt in Alaska and they hold the bar very high compared to all of the Non-Profit Haunts we have. Michelle and Sam Marsh are the owners and both are active within the haunt.
The main theme of the shoot was ghostly haunted with the models wearing mainly whites and grays. Michelle worked the airbrush for whiting out faces while a couple of her makeup artists did the detail work. Sorry, I didn’t catch their names.
There were four photographers total, Rebecca Belcher, Sandee Rice, Mark Laroza and John, that I need to verify the last name of, and one videographer Kyle Murphy that is Som Ep’Laceak Media. The number of models numbered somewhere in the 12-15 range. Most were professional models both female and male. A few males, that had come with female models, were persuaded to join in the on the fun. Who can say no to dressing up before Halloween??!!
We had roughly four hours of shooting time, which seemed to fly by once everyone got into the flow of things. All in all it was really fun running around in the dark, the hard part was leaving and having to return to the bright reality of the outside world.
I’m going to post a few pictures for now, when the photographers make them available I will provide more and update the names of the male photographers.
