The other big change is that I'm actually talking about what I want to do in advance. Normally I keep things relatively quiet unless I found something really cool. Since I've started this whole blogging thing, though, I don't think that's going to work. I get much too excited about my props and they take a lot of time away from yarn crafting. Once I start the formal planning and construction, probably in April and July respectively, my pattern output is going to drop. It's just going to happen. But, by spreading out my prop planning and construction I'm hoping that I won't get so far into Halloween that I totally lose track of my yarn crafts. Not having to rush the Halloween related posts should actually make it easier for me to get patterns up from summer on. With any kind of luck I'll have most of my construction done well in advance and then I can spend more time coming up with some truly epic patterns. The other benefit is actually for all you wonderful people that read my blog. If I create something that you think you might like to try, you *should* have time to do so. I suppose there's something extra in it for me too, come to think of it. I'm always up for suggestions and ideas. The internet is a big place and I'm bound to miss some interesting stuff. If you come across anything interesting or that might be helpful, by all means let me know!
On to the spoiler, as it were. This year I think what I want to do is a mad scientist theme. I'm going to have to re-purpose a lot of my decs for it, but I think it will work. At the moment my thought is to have some manner of 'parts storage' in the bathroom. Kinda go with the slasher film shtick; organs on ice in the tub, blood on the walls, bloody towels, dissection kit, that kind of thing. Then have the 'main lab' in the dining room with labware (beakers, flasks, etc), lab tools (like my microscope. It's nothing fancy, came in a science kit my parents got me when I was little, but it does work) and some form of monster assembly. I'll have to change some of how I do food, though. You can't have a convincing 'monster on the slab' scenario next to a box of kitty litter, it just wouldn't look right. Consequently we're probably looking at big changes to the menu also.
