Decorating My Car For Halloween

I wasn't able to find any good window decals for Halloween this year. Spirit Halloween still has the same ones from last year, and I wanted something different.

As I went digging through our Halloween decorations this year, I found my dismembered arm and leg, so those got stuck in my car doors. That was a good start, but I still needed more.

Several weeks ago, I finally got to see Child's Play for the first time and I fell in love with Chucky. So much so, I decided I needed him for my Halloween decorations. I was going to make a 2-D Chucky for the yard out of some MDF board. But then I started searching online for a Chucky doll. As it turns out, Spirit Halloween sells a nicely jacked up Chucky, a new one, that was cheaper than the ones on eBay and Etsy!

So, in the car he went!

I decided to stand him on a box to make him a little taller.

The bungee cord can't be seen once I close the back door of my car.

I'm getting a lot of laughs as people pass me on the road, once they see that mangled little face. A guy that looked to be in his 60's stopped next to me, laughing his ass off. He said his mother was mortified. She looked to be in her 90's.

Embroidery Michonne

I tried to get this done in time for the season premier of "The Walking Dead," but it just didn't happen.

Here, we have Michonne fresh out of the embroidery hoop. The image was taken from an adult coloring book, and for some reason, I couldn't get the fabric to lay still under the paper this time. I think that's why her face is a little "off." I think it was more that original attempted tracing, than it was the fabric stretching in the hoop.
