Well, my season is almost over...those of you who know me know that I prefer Halloween to any other season, even with this crazy and unpredictable Canadian weather! Well, it's only a couple more days until I start planning for next year!
It's not over yet though. Even though I was part of a group that entertained more than 1000 people last weekend (at Fort Edmonton Park's Spooktacular), I have been too busy to get photos of that all together because there is sooooo much still going on.
Last weekend also saw the Deadmonton Horror Film Festival and a Zombie walk and prom by the River City Zombie Committee - neither of which I attended, sadly.
This week is seeing some home decorating and last minute creation - pumpkin carving, costume for my son, building Eddie from Iron Maiden (though I've passed the face sculpting on to some others), and then...what to wear to work on Friday?
One of the others at work came up with the idea of Corporate Pirates - wear a suit, eye patch, bandanna and hook. That's cool I thought, being a Pastafarian and appreciative of Pirates in general (yes, even Depp did a good job, but enough of the films already, and enough of placing pirate costumes everywhere!!!). Yes, waring a suit AND being a pirate would be fun, and I was joking that I needed a wooden leg.
I seem to be currently attached to mine, but should I ever befall a tragedy that necessitates the removal I would ask for a wood-grain prosthetic. Of course, I'd also try and make one as seen in "The Ruins", just for Zombie Walks! So how can I make a wooden leg?
Head on over to Instructables.com and see!
I'll post some pictures in the future and let everyone know how things went.
