Halloween Food: The Mummy’s Hand..

Halloween Food:  The Mummy's Hand..

Happy weekend… this is from several years ago, but it was so good, I thought it deserved a repeat!

My dear creative friend, Chad, made this for the Halloween party …  and was kind enough to give us a tutorial, so we can all make our own!

Another Halloween Creepy Decor Tutorial & Printables: Ghost Portraits

Another Halloween Creepy Decor Tutorial & Printables: Ghost Portraits

For my guest post on Fed Ex’s Out of Office blog this month, I originally was going to do yesterday’s Creepy Portrait tutorial.  But, apparently that was a little tooooo creepy for them, so I did another idea:  Creepy Ghost Photos.

It’s a little simpler too, if you’re just starting with your photoshop skills, it’s a great one to start with.  The principle is the same, take old vintage photos and in this case, combine two to make one creepy photo which contains a ghost!… [ KEEP READING ]

Update: Related technique and more downloads: Ghost Portraits!

Did you know Great Aunt Gertrude was a zombie?  Or Ancient Uncle Elrod was a tad undead?  Unfortunately for my Halloween décor, I don’t really have ghouls in the family.  But we can fake it with a little photo manipulation.

Halloween Food: Dot's Mozzarella Eyeballs

These Mozzarella Eyeballs have been a staple of my Halloween party food for several years now.  They are delicious, and suitably creepy!

The curse of Halloween food blogging is that many of my Halloween delicacies, made up for the Halloween party, are done at the last minute.  So I can’t write them up very well before Halloween, and it seems silly to post the recipes AFTER Halloween.  So I was noticing that some of my really cool Halloween treats are relegated to quick photo posts, rather than giving them the treatment they deserve.  … [ KEEP READING ]

Braaains! Salmon Brain Dip every Zombie would just die for.

Braaains! Salmon Brain Dip every Zombie would just die for.

Really, Halloween is NOT that far away, and if you’re really into Halloween, like we are around here, it just makes sense to start thinking about things early! So, as part of my new “clean up old stuff on Dabbled” series, I realized that while I gave the recipe for this brain dip as part of a post on the food I created for a previous halloween party, I had not actually pulled it out into a post of it’s own.… [ KEEP READING ]

Geeky Halloween: Incredible Homemade Weeping Angels

Geeky Halloween: Incredible Homemade Weeping Angels

Don’t Blink!!  

It’s never too early to start planning for Halloween, especially if your ambitions are this big.

Check out this incredible build by HalloweenForum poster MacabreRob.

He built not one, but TWO weeping angels (of Doctor Who fame), and describes the entire process – from building the body, to molding the face.   LOVE it… I was thinking what a cool project building an angel would be, but I don’t think I’m up for anything quite this intense for our halloween decor.… [ KEEP READING ]
