Well, had a nice break from the Creep Factory, but now it's time to get back into the swing. I'm really happy about the new compressor I just scored! Its a dream compared to what I had been using. My old one was very noisy, making it virtually impossible to paint late at night. It's better suited for nail guns and stuff like that. This new one is basically as quiet as a refrigerator when it refills its tank. I must have good karma, because I got this for a song! It's basically new, lightly used by an art student for a semester. The kids dad even threw in 2 Iwata air brushes!!! I paid $150.00 total. I couldn't hand him the cash fast enough! Life is good.

Well, after my first solid year of mask and prop making, I decided to keep it somewhat low key at my homestead..I guess I was a little "too pooped to party"! Our scarecrow made its annual return, a new witch prop I made was there creepin people out, and the wife played "granny the candy passer outer" ...I threw on a Creep Factory Skull mask and hand set (and a store bought robe) and stalked about the yard greeting kids and parents.The Creep Factory was also invited to a Halloween art show at Stix Rideshop
(in Monrovia, CA) back on October 22n'd, where I rolled out some of my prototypes for display, and sold production mask's..It was great fun and I heard some great feedback and product suggestions directly from the public. Only 365 more days til next Halloween... time to get started on next years mask's and stuff!
