First week at Disney, and yet I can actually post.... It's nuts! I'm having a lot of fun, but don't expect me to spoil the Magic here... well maybe a tidbit or two, but nothing in depth. 
(Tidbit of the month: Apparently The Tower of Terror costumes cost somewhere around $1400 a piece.)
This monster is one of my faves, like a skele turned in to a scarecrow.

Of Divination by Tarot.

Found on Flickr, Image uploaded by Museo del Tarot.

I'm considering making a set of tarot or divination cards, that look ancient. Like, it should be falling apart in your hands, ancient. Like, so incredibly old, the paper is acting on par with cloth or leather. 
The paper should be thick, stained. The images drawn in ink and blanched watercolors, the language used should be a rarer language, the backs incredibly detailed. 
Oh yeah, it'll take a long time, but it sounds like fun. 
I don't actually beleive in divination, yet I own at least one set of divination cards. I use them in my still lives, but I think they are too shiny. Modern manufactured cards are sturdy, true, but they are too shiny and slick to fit in with a witch whose knowledge and tools has been handed down through several generations. Plus the clean-ness of the cards takes away from the effects I try to shoot for (grimy, unplanned, a whole lot of creepy). So I think I found a project I can do while in Anaheim that won't creep out my roommates too badly. I don't need my roommates going to the Disneyland heads and accusing me of devil worship. Although that would be a helluva funny story for you guys, wouldn't it?
Wait, its Disney: they'd accuse me of Chernabog worship. ;D

Santa Claws

Late for Christmas, but this is an awesomeness I HAVE to feature. Literally had a moment of "OMIGAWD AWESOME!" and woke up my husband in the other room and pissed my cat off.
I say its a great way to start up my featuring of other haunters again.
The holidays are dead and gone. Well... maybe not gone... rotting at least.

If I woke up X-mas morning too see this, I would have freaked the hell out, then laughed my ass off.
Marrow, I tip my hat to you buddy.
