Phoctober the fifth

More yard sales. I especially liked the last one. He had loads of what could have either been Halloween decorations or perhaps the unwanted lesser pieces of a macabre collection.

Why, I wonder, did they seem to work so hard to make the head appear realistic, but then craft those fingers so poorly?

Other Phoctobering:

All Phoctober posts from this site.

Absolute Vanilla pushes the envelope somewhat and discusses pain and human nature.

Wanderlust Scarlett provides a chilling look at what lies in wait on the other side of autumn.

because it is even more unsettling that way.

Reminds me of last scary movie I saw (I'm okay with aliens and such so I don't mean that when I say scary), Pet Cemetery. What really bothered me about how freaked out I was, was that some of the make-up/ special effects, I thought were bad, but that somehow only added to the creepy.

I really really do not like that thing. I can feel the frown lines deepening as I sit here, nasty nasty pastey white head thing. Baby in tree=much better.

That head is really realistic, not sure about the sausage rolls though.

Taffiny: Sorry to disturb you. Although I'm still not convinced that a baby in a tree is any less disturbing. And, I hope you don't mind that I've linked to your roses post for the sixth Phoctober post. You didn't identify them as Phoctoberly, but they seem right to me.

Ver: Yes. I suppose I keep thinking that they had a limited amount of time or money, and when the head was done had used almost all of it up, so they threw the fingers together in an hour os so.
