There is one store, in particular, that has decorating down to a fine science. Don't step on the mat (and by 'don't' I really mean DO!) or you'll be attacked by a bevy of mental patients trying to break down the door to get to you....but no worries, the fuzz will show up to take them all down.... This is all achieved by a couple of cool tv screens behind a door, and a well choreographed door shaker and even a few shoots of mist through the cracks! This same store also plays horror movies and has a row of seats set up with more mental patients/zombies, rocking in the seats.... I'm sensing a theme in their decorating! If you are in Edmonton, you have to check out the Halloween store on Gateway Blvd by the Toys R Us. Plus , if you dare to actually buy something.... watch out for spiders.....
I brought the kids back a few times.... and bought some cool zombie things for my son's costume....
Halloween for me also means all things Steampunk: And I've been immersing myself in imagery for inspiration for my costume. While I haven't started the infamous gun yet, I did assemble many other things for my costume - I'm going to wear it for a trial run at the very first Edmonton Comic Expo Oct 20-21
Here's my idea of steampunk:
What can I say - like the hat! LOL
Now I'm sure that anything I put together won't be this elaborate, but I'll sure have fun trying!
Let's talk steampunk books! I recently read a great Beta read called Beautiful Freaks by Katie M John
here, and it's put me in the mood for more.
In the past I've read Boneshaker - Cheri Priest -great read,
And this series (To die for!)
clockwork Princess is out March 19 - I CAN'T WAIT!
But I want to read more, so I'll try these two next:
Looking forward to them!
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving - Stumpy, our one legged turkey, turned out grand last night.
