Hollow Sockets

I'm currently working on this years wind ghost - Sorrow. My first prop to incorporate hair.

Each year I make a new wind ghost that hangs in front of the window display on Halloween. Does that make Sorrow the first prop for Marrow House 2012?

I guess it does.

Blog Evolution

I created this blog back in September of 2010. I was going for an 'earthy' brown and black color scheme.
Even the actual blog text was brown. A weird sickly yellowish brown. I still cringe when I think about it.

In May 2011, I (very) briefly tried a new red and black look, with a new header.
I experimented using different colored borders on it, but it still didn't work. It was gone within an hour, and I returned the old look.

In September of 2011, I changed the header and colors for good.
While my sister commented on the font used being 'boring' (apparently 'Garamond' looks like 'Times New Roman'), I felt very much satisfied with the new, more sophisticated look.

Time passed and eventually I got bored of the header. The sideways left eye started to look strange and tacky. I wanted something new. Something exciting. If you're reading this you've probably already noticed the 'something new and exciting' about The House Of Marrow. If not, look for the huge rotting pumpkin that's currently taking up half of your screen. It shouldn't be hard to spot.

The Backs 2012

The dirt pathway was littered with autumn leaves, and on either side of it thorns and dead shrubs sprouted from the dark soil. Crude crosses of wood were posted into the dry ground, jutting from the earth at odd angles. On top of each was placed a human skull, some with withered skin and tissue still clinging to their ancient, yellowed bones. Flickering jack o'lanterns lined the pathway which led up to an old cabin. And shrouded in shadows, an empty wooden chair sat in the doorway. 

Once you've stepped upon the dirt trail, there is no way out but forward...

We're halfway to Hallowe'en.
