The Papier Mache Nightmare 2009

October 22nd, 2009

This year’s construction of our annual Halloween display called “The Papier Mache Nightmare” is behind schedule (as always it seems) due to a very busy last couple of months.


To everyone that has sent me questions via email please know that I am working on getting them answered and those of you that took time to send me nice comments please know that they were greatly appreciated.


Currently I’m hoping to finish all of my prop building by this weekend and the display is scheduled to be up on Friday, October 30th and Saturday, October 31st.


In the works are two large five foot Dungeon Rats named “Riff” and “Raff”, eight new pumpkins featuring some new techniques, cemetery columns and fence plus my modified Sentinels.


Things are progressing, look for photos of this year’s display and new tutorials sometime in November, until then please have a safe and fantastic Halloween 2009!

    Fantastic as always! The rats are really scary.
    I have made two pumpkins and a dragon, inspired by your website. I will get back with pictures after Halloween.

    I’ll be having my first Hallowen party, for my 40th birthday.
    But I’m sure it’s not gonna be the last. Too much inspiration in too little time…

    Greetings from Sweden!
