Midsummer Scream!

Another Midsummer Scream has come and gone, and I cannot wait for next year, when (hopefully) I can be a vendor there, again!
Artis David Everett of Chicken Lips chats with a
fan next to his delightful dead Madame Leota.
Every year, David Markland and Claire Dunlop - plus the White Bats, their personal army of volunteers - gather together the very best of the Hallowe'en community for this incredible weekend convention. The vendors display a dizzying array of strange, unusual, and spooky wares, from makeup and costuming to movie posters and soaps to paintings and sculpture!
The Ghostbusters of So. Cal. were in the house, with their packs and coveted copy of Tobin's Spirit Guide.
I discovered a new (for me) vendor in Haunted Manor.

And there was just so much cool stuff to be had! I really wish I'd had more to spend!
I can honestly say that I'd never seen a mouse murder house before, but I suppose it was inevitable.
The Hall of Shadows was filled with small, walk-through haunts which were a ton of fun, plus there were some very elaborate and drool-inducing displays.

I tell you, when I've paid off all the dang attorney's fees from my divorce, there will be some serious thought about the decorating style of my new place... 
 To all the folks at Midsummer Scream, see you next year!

Monster Coffee

This is about how I feel today, with all the middle-aged lady's lack of REM sleep. Or sleep in blocks of longer than three hours...

I would love to know who made this mug! If anyone knows and can send a link to the artist's page, I'm more than happy to give credit.

Summer Reading

In all honesty, I haven't read any of these. I just love the cover art! So vintage creepy!

Click on the pics if you dare!

 Happy reading, my Darklings!

9 Months in the making, but it's finally here!

HAUNTCAST POST MORTEM 11 - Dungeon of Doom featuring Brent Wilson of Planet Doom Haunted House, Jasper Anderson of, David and Claire of Midsummer Scream and music from The Spooky.

The site is being migrated to a dank place, and should be in its new, fetid home in a few days. It will then be available in iTunes, Google Play, Sticther etc...

BTW, Baker has also started a Patreon page for Hauntcast, so if you have a few bones to throw out to us monthly, head on over:
We are 2/3rd of way to our 1st goal of bi-monthly shows. If we reach this by next week I am going to drop a CNC tutorial video for making tombstones. Please support us on for more frequent shows, video tutorial and product review and special content for patrons. Thank you!
