Gruesome!

With the move to the new abode, Halloween decorating has been a rushed affair, to say the least. In fact, I've only done some of the yard haunt, and am forced to skip the interior altogether this year. It's sad, but necessary, considering that most of our belongings are in boxes. Heck, I wouldn't even know where most of those decorations are at this point!

Fortunately, my outdoor decorations are primarily stored together, with all of the smaller pieces fitting inside my life-sized coffin. This made it rather easy, as I rolled the yard pieces directly off the truck into the back yard until I could get to them. One piece I'm rather proud of is my "life-sized" (or is that "death-sized"?) Gruesome prop! For those unfamiliar, Gruesome is a character created by the amazing Eric Pigors of ToxicToons, who got his own amazing mask produced by Trick Or Treat Studios a few years back. I began work on the prop last year, and he was briefly featured in the yard haunt then, but he needed a lot more work. While I still need to do some tinkering with him after Halloween, I decided he looked good enough to take a spot near the graveyard this year.

Unfortunately, I only have a crappy iPhone 4s camera, so my pics aren't the greatest (plus, I need to do some playing around with the lighting for the haunt before the big night). Anyway, here's what he looks like as of this moment:
