her blood has the power to raise the dead

My first experience with Monster Mud, and Medusa is looking quite awesome. I need another coat of Mud and paint treatment is still to come. The guys at the hardware store thought I was quite hilarious when I was explaining what I wanted the drywall joint compound for. The one guy was begging me to come back and tell him if it worked, bring photos. I may have inadvertently created a future haunter.
She has mirrors for eyes and it looks great even in daylight. You kind of catch movement reflected in her eyes and it is quite spooky. I am going to try to shove some glow sticks inside her head on Halloween, and it should light up the mirrored eyes a bit as there is a small gap between the mirrors and the eye socket.

and there was light

Amazing photography, and the chandeliers blow my mind.
especially the medusa one, obviously.


The thing I love most about getting ready for Halloween is the ingenuity it brings out. hmmm...what can I do with a mannequin torso, an old tripod and some chicken wire? Why, make a Medusa statue for the cemetery obviously.
Here she is in the first stages:

yep, there is an exposed breast. Medusa is quite saucy.

Canadian Haunted Attractions

Too bad I'm always so busy with my own evil projects to get out to any of them.
Maybe this year since I started early.


I hate graveyard vandalism, so senseless. But lovely photo.
I am considering making a giant stone angel for my cemetery this year.

a beautiful photo of a frightening subject.
