We haven’t been able to be in the Spook Show for a while as it hasn’t been able to be in its usual venue–long story. But, I do have lots of fun mementos and photos, including the rather extensive collection of costumes that Gruno and Gliz have accumulated. Here are a few:
I know it’s after Halloween, and I have a lot of my own puppet stuff to post, but I thought I’d share something with the arachnophiles out there.
Folks,I have not had any timeto blog and be part of the Halloween Countdown.I promise to make it up to you with a huge Halloween related post in the next day or so, and THEN you will see!
In the meantime, I am giving you something fantastic. Not puppetry, but deals with costumes and makeup.
Are you ready for silly color test footage of Boris Karloff in Son of Frankenstein??Here!!!
Steve and I traveled to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens yesterday to view the scarecrows. I admit, I was prepared for the worst, after the staff,crowds,and weather mangled my entries last year. However,The Mummycorn was not only fully intact, but looking great. It was also in a spot in which certain photos made it look truly as if it were stalking through the woods! Check these out:
At the Southern Museum in Kennesaw, Vapor and I did almost sixteen performances in two consecutive nights, adding a couple of shows due to popular demand. The occasion was an event called “The Haunted Museum”, which was for older kids and adults, and an all-ages Halloween festival took place on the same site. The show was called “The Tale of the Screaming Skull”, and uses total audience participation. I performed it in an adorable little depot across the street from the museum,which made the perfect puppet theater.
I made hats, each with the face of a character in the story, and once the audience knew what as going on, the kids were falling all over themselves wanting to play characters in the play. We had a great time, and my sixteen different dads out of the audience, who played my Screaming Skull, were terrific.
Many thanks to Laurel, who coordinated the Halloween festival and treated me like royalty while i was there. Steve also came on the second night, dressed as a Ghostbuster.
