I miss

my scarecrow.

I have given away and traded many of my props - many of them I never think of again. But this one haunts me (pun intended), selling him was a mistake. Death Studio no longer makes this mask so I cannot replace it.

He went in the year that I took a good look at the yard (with my Evil Artistic Director looking glass) and said....hum, why would there be a scarecrow in a cemetery? Or pumpkins?

And why are a bunch of monk figures coming down the driveway - they need a church or something, or they have to go.

So I gained the famous church facade,

but the following year I got rid of the scarecrow, and I have not carved a pumpkin since. (I have to be honest, carving 20 or so pumpkins every year was a big task....and not something I miss all that much.)

So last year I decided to create a scarecrow for my gated flower garden in the backyard. I did not finish him but I will this year, and I might have to add a few pumpkins. :)


  1. Wait a minute, that's YOU!? Oh wow, I love your haunt! I just put 2 and 2 together.

    I love the scarecrow, could the head be recreated some sort of sculpture medium?

  2. It's funny how things come full circle like that, eh?

    Thanks for the warning - don't sell your favorites, no matter how much they don't seem to fit in a the time. Check!


  3. I would miss that scarecrow too. What would we do without Death Studios?

    Oh, and nice to make your acquaintance.

  4. I am thinking of trying papier-mâché- but in the Northwest, not so sure. I figure I will make something now, coat the hell out of it and put it in the yard all of next month. If it can survive April - October should be easy :)

    And yes, if you like it keep it and find it a home!
