Sleepy Hollow Hayride - Newtown, PA

It's October... and so warm it almost doesn't feel like Halloween time. As I have for the past several years, each weekend I help put on a show for people in the Halloween spirit at Sleepy Hollow Hayride in Newtown, PA. I help manage the zombies, witches, and ghouls that haunt the hayride and field of fright.

 Henrietta, the fire breathing dragon has been one of my favorite scenes on the hayride for my entire time at Sleepy Hollow. This year she is terrorizing a hayride wagon instead of the a school bus like she did in the past. Henrietta is unique to Sleepy Hollow, and enormous... plus did I mention she breaths fire?!?!

One of the newer characters to haunt Newtown is this awesome specter. He's a hit even with the other terrors of the farm. Here the specter poses for a photo with some of the other scarers.

I was having fun trying to photograph the fire twirler. I really like how this photo turned out. It's hard to balance the motion blur with the shutter speed needed to capture enough light. I think it turned out pretty well.

Retro Con 2017 Stop Motion Animated Commercial

Hey guys, I'm getting really excited for Retro Con 2017! I always get the chance to meet awesome celebrity guest as well as buy a bunch of toys at the show. Once again, for this years convention I've created a fun Stop Motion Animated commercial featuring lots of action figures. Each years these videos get bigger and better. I love how we always have new 70's & 80's characters to interact in the parking lot outside in the convention center parking lot.

Power Rangers Blue Ranger & Zord - SDDC The Loyal Subjects

I just got my newest shipment in from the Loyal Subjects Super Double Diamond Club. Like every installment we got another translucent action vinyl figure. I really wish instead of saying you'd get exclusive action vinyl figures by joining the SDDC they would have said you'll get exclusive translucent figures. Every figure is the same gimmick and I'm tired of it. Can't get get Glow in the Dark or a special paint scheme. What a waist of money. I don't even think these figures display nice in or out of the package.
