The Haunted Library is located in Fenwright Manor, just behind those pocket doors in the foyer. Don't you just love the smell of old books? Actually it's just a how- to index

Franken_bride Project 2001

In or around October 2001 I was toying with the idea of doing a Frankenstein/Mad Scientist set up.   I did photo experiments using my ghost as a Frankenbride.  In this picture I set up my workspace as a lab with a strobe light and plasma ball.  I can't completely remember why I didn't use this

Pumpkin Gremlin

This is a concept for a gremlin that had a pumpkin  dropped on it's head.  This is the best picture I could get of the drawing.

Bat Spinner


 This is my bat spinner made two days before Halloween 2009.  It uses the flapping bats momentum to spin the bar. I will post a slideshow with instructions in the future.   Everyone can agree on how cool those motorized flapping bats can be every Halloween, but what about two? This project was three years in the making.  I can conjecture that this spinning bar was based on the circling sharks from the "graveyard of ships" scene from the old "Submarine Voyage" at Disneyland.  i'm not quite sure yet.                                                

Light up eyes


 These are my light up eyes for my skull mask. I had always wanted to do
lights inside the mask, as part of my ongoing haunted house project. I
found a project that could help me

With the return of the Hatbox Ghost to the Haunted Mansion this month.  I have decided to post a picture of when I tried to match the 2006 Haunted Mansion bride,"Constance Hatchaway" or as she is known as a Black Widow Bride who decapitated 5 husbands.

The Axe could not stay up.  But it worked well with  a strobe light.  In the dark, All I could see was the glowing eyes and heart, and when the strobe light flashed, it revealed she had an Axe.

Gremlin Puppet

I have had a desire to have some gremlins  from the 1984 movie "Gremlins" for a few years.  This has become more of an obsession over the past few days.  With that being said, I am going to have to learn advanced puppetry and animatronics.  The following art will be for the trick or treat candy eating gremlin.
