Shadow Wood

There are three ways into Shadow Wood.Welcome to Shadow Wood

Walk the road, past troll and witch,
Or roam the potter’s field,
Mind the dark things in the ditch,
Don’t test the over-keeled.

There is another way to go,
A well worn avenue,
Where friendly spirits want to throw,
A party just for you.

So make your way and move your feet,
But don’t get lost between,
The porch lights and the Tricks or Treats,
On the night of Halloween!

Indy Haunt Fest June 26, 27

Indy Haunt Fest is June 26, 27 in Indianapolis. Mrs. Spookyblue and I will be there, along with whatever mustering of monsters we can fit into the truck.

The lineup includes a haunter’s auction, hearse rally, zombie crawl, make-and-take classes, and presentations by haunt pros such as Haunted Attraction Magazine co-founder, and commercial haunt designer, Leonard Pickel.

Your old pal Spook will give a “Monster Mache” demonstration, and we’re also hosting a foam carving make-and-take. This hands-on covers old school methods that don’t involve searing hot wires, killer fumes, and accidentally setting your shoelaces on fire.

Folks can choose to make a 10″x12″ tombstone, or a “rotted wood” sign (about 14″x10″).

We’ve had to miniaturize things just a bit to fit into the time allowed, but the techniques can be scaled to any size. When the carving’s done, we’ll paint our projects to look like real wood, brick, or stone.

Class size is limited, so if you’re interested in attending, contact us for more info, or to reserve a spot.
