CalHaunts Nor Cal Rock Star: Mr. Chicken

You really need to move to Northern California, because we have (almost!) all the best haunters here.

O.k., maybe not, but we surely do have a bunch of crazy-talented folks in the CalHaunts Norcal Chapter Haunt Club. Brent Ross of DC Cemetery, Perfessor Evil of Haunt Project, and a bunch of others, including one of my haunt heroes, Mr. Chicken.

Other folks have posted about him before-most recently, The Frog Queen. I had it in mind to post about him, but with one thing and another, hadn't gotten around to it until now-mostly because of the Frog Queen's good example and because I got to meet him at last Saturday's CalHaunts meeting. He's a genuinely nice person and, like most haunters, is very free with his haunt knowledge.

Anyhow, for those of you not aware of him, he is one of those guys who not only knows his animatronics, but has the artistic talent needed to make his props look realistic. He does molding and casting, too. He did a great how-to for his Madame Leota prop.

I am fantastically jealous of this guy!

  1. Hey, thanks for the link to the Madame Leota prop. I had not seen that!

  2. he is a master--I just ordered the zombie mask for my animated skelly--can't wait!

  3. I do have to move.....could you imagine the trouble I could get into down your way? :D

    Do love Mr. Chicke's work work - just cannot say it enough.

    I am very jealous that you get to hang with Brent too...I really gotta move :)


  4. Hey, how come nobody told me about this post? :P
    Thanks for the shout out, Shelly! It was great to meet you, too!

    Chris, yes! join us... join us....
