I have also been working on a more conventional apothecary complete with some of the grossest ingredients I could find. After seeing some of the other blog author's creations, I fear mine looks is severely lacking. Here it is in it's 95% completed phase.
This is diagonally across from the glowing apothecary. Hopefully our party guests will spend some time exploring both. They may even find a surprise or two.
Here are some close ups of the items that make up this gross gathering. I apologize for my photographic skills (or lack of). I am seriously considering taking a class at the local college. Till then, here is what I have with the best I can do:
|Dead Man's Fat (Vegi oil, butter, water), Twisted Twigs (dried curly willow branches), Earth worms(gummy worms and grape jelly).|
|Toadstool clippings (dry garlic), Graveyard Dust (talc), Eye of Newt (Cloves).|
|Hand and Brain both from Dollar Tree (little grow toys)|
|Petrified Butterflies (printed and cut out butterfly wings glued together ) Poison and Vamp Blood (Grenadine)|
|Vials are Walmart sprinkle pack I got last year for 50 cents. Jar of Eyes is a prop I got from Spencer's (animated), Dried Hell Fire (Volcano Rocks for a gas grill).|
|Swamp fog (lightly sprayed with backing soda water), The invisible man Eyes if from Dave Lowe Designs, The castor oil is a real bottle from my girlfriends late grandfather (60+ years old).|
|Coffin nails are just old rusty nails, the Kitten Souls is a joke prop I made for an old boss. The human flesh is thick cloth soaked in apple cider vinegar and coffee.|
|This is my collection of commercially purchased bottles for filler.|
|Just fake spider and spider web that accidentally ended up like this.|
|Test tubes from Martha Stewart, holder was made by me out of scrap wood.|
|Flower beads that swell in water.|
|Frog's Breath (Glow in dark web), Volts from Eels( tonic water, blue color comes from bottle), Just a random bottle of eyes in tonic water.|
Still collecting a few last specimens so I have just a tad more work to do. Time is closing in for the wicKED weeKEnD Halloween party (29th) so I am rushing with last minute details.
Since it is a rainy dreary day here in Virginia, I figured I would leave this post with some fun stuff Halloween stuff.
First, an awesome Facebook app. Just follow the link and allow permission (it is safe).
Who would not want a psychopath tracking them down on Halloween? Go ahead... take the lollipop!
Next from AMC, we have some Fear Fest Fun. Answer the questionnaire to find out what Movie Monster you are.
Turns out I am a werewolf. That explains a lot. Wonder what you will
I have seen this video posted at several other blogs. I just have to post it myself.
