Don’t Fear The Reaper

This is totally off topic, but it’s my blog! So there!

We are having a door decorating contest at work (and the judging happens soonish I think) and this is my entry:

The company name is crossed out for protection of the innocent!

I made it myself, from scratch, the only pre-made item is the hand, and even that had to be cut up (it had an arm. I…removed it) to work. I made the bars from paper and I typed up all that adding machine tape and bloodied it up. Then I suspended the whole thing with fishing line.

All the entries are really fun, so I may or may not win, but I don't care either way. I'm just really proud of how it came out!

That hand is disturbingly realistic and I can't imagine have to. . . free it from the arm. ((shudder)) I don't know what could top this!

O.k., I love this. I haven't posted my Halloween decoration pics yet but they have a classic black and white theme...so naturally this appeals to me. Bloody hand and all.

I LOVE Halloween. Your entry is classy, appropriately gruesome, and (most importantly) not TACKY. Great job my friend!

We don't actually do Halloween in Belgium, but this is really funny! Cool idea as well, to lighten up the workplace.
