Ghosts and Goblins of 2010!!!

"When the Ghosts wail and sing,
The Goblins ears do sting,
And the harvest moon's the biggest it's been,
this year on Hallowe'en!"

Today is Halloweeeen!!! The one night where ghosts and goblins steal candy from innocent children...well maybe...anyway, here's some art and other festivities that led up to this day!

I was extremely inspired by these old 1920's costumes I found.

They were basically variations of the clothing style of that time but with pumpkins and cats as buttons or scarves. Really awesome, so I had to draw the coolest ones! It would be really interesting to go back in time and see how everything was back then...

Check out dis smirking pumpkin I carved when I was visiting home! I think he's got the hots for you!

We also got a swan gord which I had wanted to paint to look like a witch but instead it started to look like Gonzo mixed with the Joker.

Talula made friends with the pumkin!

And here is my costume!!!

It was always a dream of mine to be an extra on a Planet of the Apes movie. I love that makeup so much.


Lastly here's a cool Halloween song you can listen to!

So I hope everyone has a great Halloween! I'm going to the NYC Halloween parade today and will definitely take some pictures of that to post!

Happy Haunts,

Dang, I love vintage finds!
You'll often find me at antique markets, unable to afford things.
