Thanks to my haunter friend The Boneyard Creep, I was able to think of a different way to pose Sam in my haunt that will make it different from other haunters.  I've made a little bit of progress, his costume is complete! And I will be posting another video soon about the new progress I've made on him. Also, I am almost at 100 subscribers!!! SERIOUSLY awesome.  After starting my channel only a month ago, I was able to get to 100 subscribers and it means more to me than people may think.  When starting this channel I honestly didn't think anyone would watch, but I was pleasantly surprised :) I will be posting a video on the new contest/ giveaway ASAP so make sure you're watching so you have a chance to win!

On Thursday May 16th, I made my first ever appearance on Haunter's Hangout and it was such an honor to even be asked! Being so new to the haunter family,  I thought it would be a while before I ever made an appearance on the show.  However, to my disbelief I got an email from our friend Deoblo asking for me to be a guest.  I have to admit though, when I got the invite I got extremely nervous.  I kept thinking "what am I going to talk about? I have NOTHING compared to all of these seasoned and well known in the haunt community haunters" But hell was  I wrong! EVERYONE made me feel so welcomed and part of the family immediately and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside haha I know I keep repeating myself, but knowing that I have all of you to back me up is what keeps me going when I want to give up.  Getting ideas and praise from the haunt family is why I will be around for a LONG time to come. 

        There's nothing better than a bunch of Halloween junkies getting together and having a great time! My husband even said to me the next day " As long as I've known you, I've never heard you laugh like that!" As always, the show is a blast to watch and even more fun being on it. I am so happy that I was given the opportunity, and hope to appear on future shows (next time wih more props!) So, if you happen to have a couple of free hours to sit down and watch, I advise you do so! Seeing the people on the show and checking out their other videos is what the haunter family is all about.  Being able to bounce ideas off of each other and see the kick ass props they've made and how they made them is what is making this community even larger.  Having the support of all of you makes yard haunting possible! 

    Be sure to check out Deoblo85's channel for the past episodes and the last 2 remaining for the year.  Believe me, you WILL NOT be disappointed :) Fantastic haunters and down to earth people and so many different styles of haunts, you won't know where to start.  Oh, and don't forget to subscribe to those on the show and those who are watching live.  They are who got me started in all of this, and who I keep getting my inspiration and motivation from.  YOU GUYS ROCK!

When first learning about other home haunters and the awesomeness they are creating in their garages and basements, I came across a well known haunter PumpkinRot.  Seeing his work is what inspired me initially to become a home haunter.  Once I started to do a little more reseach, I learned about the haunt community and how many other crazed Halloween fans (other than myself) are out there! I have been inspired by so many of the other haunters and the amazing work they've done.  Another haunter I came across is Scott Stoll of Stolloween.  His paper mache techniques is what fueled the fire to get this baby started and how I learned a TON. Paper mache is something you have to have a shit load of patience for and it's a long drawn out process.  It took me forever to make just the head on this guy, but I wanted to learn more and know that when making him, he would last in my haunt for years.  He has some poor design qualities but those will be fixed for this years haunt!


In my video,  I give you a quick look at Rott and explain a little about how he was made.  He has been a huge leearning tool for me as I head full force into  home haunting.  I also show some work that still needs to be done as well as future plans.  I will be adding more to his display this year and am hoping to have the opportunity to create even more monsters/ props as big as he is.
