31 Days of Halloween - Day 3




Some time ago I posted about a papier-mache Nosferatu head that I constructed for a display I was building for the Shaman Drum Bookshop for Halloween.

As you can see, Nosferatu is completed (though, like all vampires, proving difficult to photograph) complete with glowing eyes.



To dress up the window a bit without having to paint, and then repaint the walls, I created a castle-like setting for him with stone blocks and a barred window all completely cut out of paper and taped to the walls.




The interior of the store got a bit of the Halloween treatment as well. A corner of the children's section was webbed in with spiders.




Another sign was created for a display set on top of one of the low built in shelving units.

Now to get the decorations up in my house.

Man, I'd bet it's pretty creepy coming across that window display after dark. That is a really fun looking display John.

Btw, thanks for the CD, the music has definitely set the mood around my house...

Nosferatu just looms there in that window! Wouldn't be comfortable turning my back on him I don't think.

I love the children's display area, as well. Shaman Drum looks like a great place to let the creative juices flow. I once worked in a library where the director would never let us put anything in our Halloween display that "might be scary." Sigh...
