Just remember: if you find any razors in your candy, they are excellent for regifting the neighbors come Christmas. Have a safe one!
Spooky Horror blah blah something convention post is on the way. Editing photos right now, check back later. Or don’t, I’m not your mom/dad/legally appointed gaurdian.
I’m going to start this post with a Halloween Nerd blog history lesson. Lucky you.
According to Tumblr, this blog existed a year (and then some) before I started posting anything. That’s not exactly true. I started this blog September 13th, 2010 and by the end of day one I already had a post up. That was the last of my promptness. From that point forward, posts were so infrequent that I had a total of 4 in over a year (including the intro post). So I took it down and went on hiatus.
A few months later I revamped a bit and started over. Things don’t seem to be going much better this time ‘round. Not for the same reasons as before, mind you. Okay, so, partly for the same reasons. Outside of laziness, I’m trying to stay away from my bad habit of “shit I bought” posts. Those started as a ”sometimes” thing and ended up being all the things. My second post here was a craft post (I melted plastic). That was the original idea for H.N.. Not just crafts, or stuff I have, or food, but a mix of things. So to get on track, I’ve been buying projecty-type materials, both edible and not so much.
I’m starting with fabric ghosts A.K.A. The Ghost Project. The ghost project gained an alias because it has been living in my mental pocket (that’s a thing, shuddup) since the original inception of this blog. It was the intended first project, and after 2 failed attempts and a blog redux, I will finally be able to say “Look at this. I MADE it.”.
Halloween Nerd turned 3 on Friday the 13th. I’m pretty proud a’that. This is the longest I’ve ever phoned something in constantly. Consistency is the key.
PS: See that cupcake up there? Don’t try to eat that. It’s not real. Plus, I already licked it.
[For once, the lateness of this post isn’t on me. See the title image above? It took me two weeks to get it up there. Two. Weeks. Get it together Tumblr.]
Hey! It’s Halloween Extreme part two! (If you’ve no idea what I’m talking about, go read this. Or your fired.) “Hauls” seem to be a thing right now, so I thought I’d get in on that action. I’ll tell you now, the most expensive thing I bought cost me $10 and most of it is cardboard. That whole “randomly become a millionaire” thing hasn’t really panned-out yet.
[1) There will be a part two for this post. 6) This post is long but has a ton of pictures. Triangle) I don’t know numbers. Now ya know.]
Halloween Extreme. Sounds amazing, right? Hearing those two words together was a “shut-up and take my money!” moment. "Really?" Yes, let me explain! Then I can make fun of you for running to get your wallet for tickets to an event that already happened, stupid. Pay attention!
Not a big deal BUT I made a Pandora station for the blogamabob. Still working on it, so don’t judge it too hard Judge Judgington. Click the post date to listen.
Happy New Year! With that being said…
"Didn’t you say you were going to post more?" Shut up. "I thought you were doing Halloween Christmas!" Shut. Up. "Where’s the black Christmas tree?" SHUSH!
I had plans, I did. I also had good reasons for forgoing most of my intended to-do list, trust me. Ignoring H.N. wasn’t entirely intentional, but here’s the honest scoop, kids: The only camera I have right now is horrendous even in great lighting. Don’t believe me? There’s some great examples here. I was hoping to remedy this over the holidays but the funding just wasn’t there. So I’ve resorted to photo filters. It takes for-fucking-ever to render a single picture to JUST bad quality. So things are either slow-go or no-go until Febuary, the ladder being my preferred choice when fixing these damn pics. I’m still not dead, nor is Halloween Nerd.
I hope this makes you feel better. Though considering how many actually read this, by you, I mean me.
“You are awful at this. You didn’t even post on Halloween! Nothing. Not a picture, or a song, or, um, a picture. Just awful!”
Woah. Chillax. (Not to self: I hate that word, consider yourself warned.) I wanted to get more stuff up but quite honestly, I’m tired of just stuff. “Here’s a thing I bought, look at it. LOOK AT IT.” Bleh. I haven’t done a project since day one though. So I got a few projects together, and I’m working on the kinks. Kinks? Yes. This is my life, and if I actually got paid for project failures, well, someone else would be typing this up for me while I sat behind them eating lobster. Gold lobster. I’d share with them too, because I’m polite. Hopefully they don’t have a metal, shellfish, or metal shellfish allergy. Ummmmm, Oh yeah, projects. I has them. Posting will happen very soon.
Along with the projects, I’m having Halloween On Christmas. Super creative, right? This wasn’t actually my idea, my mister actually thought it up. Which means I finally get the black x-mas tree I’ve wanted for years now, with the exception of last year (I wanted to paint a tree like the TARDIS). Which for you, means that you’ll get to watch me try to mash-up these holidays as best as I can. And I’ll be (mostly) steering clear of The Nightmare Before Christmas, because ever since Disney realized how much of a potential goth market there was for it, they held a gun to its temple and made it do terrible, unspeakable things. Speaking of which, in all that marketing rapery, why the hell isn’t there a collectible head in a box?
So no, I haven’t disappeared. Believe me, it’s a positive as far as this blog is concerned. And if you find that head in a box, lemme know. But if you make that head in a box, you can keep it. Weirdo.
It’s almost Halloween and I’ve got 2 posts up this month. Damn I’m good at this… Moving on.
I found this at Wal-Mart and didn’t think twice about buying it. It was $5, and it looks creepy and amazing. If you too found it but chose not to buy it, you are a fool,and I too pity you.
