Speaking of scaring the snot out of your friends and family, I saw this on their website:
“If you are a newbie to Nightmare or your crazy friends are dragging you here, you can purchase Monster Wards for $1 before you go into the event. Monster Wards are special necklaces that contain monster repellant. No monster will approach you if you are wearing a Monster Ward. Just DON’T get them confused with Monster Teasers, which will have the opposite effect. Only two Monster Teasers are sold per group and you have to sign a waiver.”
I wonder if the monster repellant necklaces work at my house too. Hm.
My 2 favorite things tonight: what kind of spread would you expect at a dark arts opening? Blood sausage and fingernail stew with an aperitif of red wine? Nope, not at this one. Milk and cookies it was!
Favorite thing #2: Fabric artist Emily Stoneking. Who knew fiber arts, with their warm and snuggly appeal could become peeled flesh and exposed organs. And somehow you still want to snuggle up with it. Or at least, I did.
And thanks Dawn for the amusing company tonight!
