Halloween Windows

So that time I did two Halloween windows and never talked about them. Here we go!

These ghosts!!! I know, crazy spooky scary. This was my Halloween window for the Rare Device//Noe Valley store. It had to be done rather quickly, so I stitched up these ghosties.  I kept the gold diamonds that were up with the Cactus window because, why not, they’re cool. I like this last photo, it looks like they’re having a party and they”re singing.

It was probably the simplest installation I’ve done, but it still took me forever. (People who install quickly, so impressed with you.) I also printed up some postcard sets and 8 x 10 prints.

Happy October!

I can’t believe it’s already October! And it’s so hot outside today!! I could only handle 30 minutes at Baker Beach before bailing for shade and iced drinks. So when better than this beautiful, sunny day to start some new Creepy Portraits for Halloween!

I sat outside my favorite coffee house (in full shade of course) and started my fifth creepy portrait. Here’s an in progress look:

I had so much fun doing these last year! I didn’t think of the series until the last few days of October, so hopefully I’ll have several more done this time around. Here’s Creepy Portrait #1, #2, #3, and #4.

Happy October!

Day Job Land

Ahh I haven’t updated in so long! I’ve returned to day-job land and haven’t had much time to get crafty lately. The only projects I’ve been working on have been christmas gifts, which would be spoilers if I posted them! Ahh such a dilemma!

Halloween seems like forever ago, but I never posted my finished sly fox costume! Roos hasn’t been in the mood to put it back on for me to photograph, but I’ll get him to because I loved it and never got a good photo. For now, here’s the one terribly lit/surreal/kinda creepy snap that I have:

Creepy Portrait #4

I think I’m going with a Victorian haunted house “creepy” for these ink drawings. I’ve never been one for gore or violence so the unsettling, eerie, someone-is-watching-you vibe will have to do.

I’m pretending that this woman is some kind of evil headmistress, either boarding school or orphanage…or that she’s the wicked stepmother to portrait #2. I suppose I should start drawing different shaped noses…
