There is a wonderful story about how Neil has participated in the fundraiser every year. How he donated a copy of Stardust for the fundraiser, and what happened after, is also a good read.

The artist is Bill Crisafi. The print above, Dreams in the Witch House, is on my Yule shopping list! She was summoned by Darkness is another favorite.

Clear glass with a fortune telling hand on one side and a phrenology head on the other side. Testing diffusion methods with 2 different sheets of vellum. Tried white vellum and wax paper.
Final choice was tracing paper.
Nice warm glow from the flicker candles at different heights.

Found this great canvas photo op banner at Home Decorators. Turned it in to a mirror for guests to see themselves as skeletons. The mirrors in the faces are mirrored plexiglass. The plexiglass is lightweight and held on with duct tape on the back of the canvas.
The plexiglass was used in a stage production. It was pre-distressed so the audience couldn't see in to the mirrors on stage. Mr. Old Fashion Halloween is a scenic designer. He was kind enough to loan me the mirrors. The aging on the mirrors matched the canvas!
Not ready for Halloween to be over just yet. I tried some new things this year, like the banner, that worked well for my purposes. So, stick around, if you are curious, for a few more weeks. I took a lot of photos!

Rain is almost a given on Halloween night in Oregon. Waterproof items are a must out in the yard. Found these illoom balloons. My pack had 5 balloons. Zip tied the balloons to the boxwood. The balloons held up to rain and wind and were still glowing Tuesday night. The 2 button batteries used to light the tiny LED can be recycled.
