Halloween is Only 365 Days Away

Halloween is Only 365 Days Away

It’s never too early to plan for next Halloween.  It’s only 365 days away and the countdown starts now.

So after 5 or 7 or 9 years of buying costumes, you should have a decent wardrobe for next year.  If you have enough, you might be able to take one part from one costume and another part from another costume and even make a ‘new’ costume.

If you don’t have enough bits and pieces to make another costume, this is a great time to ‘buy forward, so to speak.

The Halloween shops have probably closed, packed and vacated your city by now; but if you have a local costume shop, they may or may not be willing to wheel and deal.  No merchant wants to carry over their inventory until next season.

Some merchants have up to a 60% off of selected items for a limited time. You might want to take a look before these deals go away.    Or check our Amazon Halloween costume store (look for the tab below our banner).  If we find any, we will post them today or in a day or so.

And guess what’s coming up soon?  More Thanksgiving stuff on our Amazon Store. Click tab right below the banner on top of this page.

Halloween Costumes.  Where do I Start?

Oops!  This should have been published a month ago.  Anyhow, this is our disclaimer.

Beginning next week, we will begin to process some thoughts that will help you make a decision as to what you might want to wear to your Halloween costume party.

In the meantime, you might want to simply visit one of our ‘sponsors’  Just click on ads in the right column, or the orange bar below, or the tab above which says ‘Amazon Costume Store’ and you will find many, many costumes; and the one you are looking for will probably be there.  At this time, availability as to quantity, size and whatever other parameters you might use should be there.  In two-three weeks, who knows?  OK, enough on the blantant sale pitch.  You know that we get a commission on every sale that is made through us.  Is that enough transparency?

Welcome to our Easter Amazon Store          

Our Amazon Store is listed as a tab in the bar above (just below the banner)

Give our Amazon Store a second or two (maybe even longer) to load, then scroll down…

If you choose to purchase anything from this store, you are actually buying it through Amazon, and you can expect the same great service they always provide.

Presently, we are featuring suggestions for the upcoming Easter holiday to include Easter Bunny costumes.  You will (with a little search) find Biblical costumes, as well, when you actually enter into the wide world of Amazon.

Sock Puppets n Stuff

Sock Puppets lets you create your own puppet shows in seconds, then share them on Facebook and YouTube with just a few taps. A great variety of puppets can be found from a number of different sources including children’s catalogs such as Kaplan , toy stores such as ToysRus, and big-box stores such as K-mart, Target and Dollar Tree. Another great source for puppets is yard sales and local publications such as BuySell Bulletin. Creative adults and children can make their own puppets from socks, felt, and other household items.

And nowhere was the French supremacy in the field of large inflatable more apparent than on Berlin’s Kurfürstendamm, the city’s main boulevard, where locals recently celebrated the street’s 125th anniversary with a performance by Les Plasticiens Volants, a French troupe of puppeteers who are world famous for large-scale extravaganzas that tell stories using giant puppets filled with helium and air and controlled by ropes.

With original music by Bruce Haack, scenery by William B. Pitkin & Kevin Frisch, marionettes by Coppola & James Wojtal, jr., lights and sound by Terry Alan Smith, and directed by Michael Leach, Puppetworks’ The Jungle Book is a fantastical journey of one of Mowgli’s adventures with Akela the wolf and Baloo, the Bear, and filled with temptations of the monkey folk and other such animals of the Indian jungle.

When you are learning ventriloquism, you may not get the drone at once, but a little practice will enable you to do so. When once you hear that clear, distant-sounding drone you may know that you have your mouth as it should be for ventriloquism, but until you do produce that you must hark back because, unless this foundation is laid properly, all that follows is unsatisfactory and your ventriloquism will lack that distant quality, to obtain which is to be a ventriloquist.

Educational wooden toys encourage curiosity and help to explore the things around.Wooden puzzles for toddlers and toddler puzzles games, matching puzzles memory games and colorful wooden shaped puzzles are really very allowable for a toddler’s play.Wooden marionettes and wooden string puppets give a great enjoyment to a child as well as they learn to express and expose themselves in a smarter way.

The award-winning puppeteer-actor has honed his skills creating and animating puppets since the age of 10. He landed his first paying television gig in his late teens for a CBS affiliate in Baltimore, where he ultimately attracted the attention of Muppet designer and future mentor, Kermit Love, who introduced the ambitious teen to legendary puppeteer Jim Henson, who created Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and dozens of other famous character.

Props Master and Props Designer

stage props cigarettes

The most common means of organizing props is the use one or several props tables.  A props table is simply a large table in the wings where props are laid out for use. Usually the table is covered with heavy paper which is divided into sections for each prop, appropriately labeled. The props are often outlined to make their proper place obvious. It is then quite simple to look over the table to see if anything is missing. Atlanta Props designed this grocery set for a Perdue chicken television commercial. Atlanta Props was responsible for the design of the set, the construction, and all the fixtures and props.

During Strike for each production, the Props Designer, in collaboration with the Prop Shop Student Manager , is responsible for returning props to Storage in good repair and suitable for future use. Makes sure all borrowed or rented props are returned in good condition. During Strike, the Props Designer will collaborate with the Prop Shop Student Manager in returning props to storage and insuring all items are returned in good condition. At the end of the day’s rehearsal the props master should organize the crew to put away props as needed.
