Halloween Nerdtivities



This week’s assignment from the League: Halloween photo assignment

Halloween is nearly upon us, but there’s still time for another Halloween weekly topic! This week’s assignment for the League of Extraordinary Bloggers …
Photo assignment: Grab your camera and snap a few pictures of how you, or your home town, is celebrating the greatest holiday of the year: Halloween!
REMEMBER!: The League is always open to new members! Got a blog? Write a post in response to the weekly challenge, and you’ll be included. It’s that easy!
During Halloween, Laura and I mostly stay at home and participate in our own Halloween Nerdtivities.

Reading!


Laura and I both love to read, but we hate spending too much money on books, so naturally we are total library nerds. I like to borrow all the spooky books and comics I can read this time of year. The Bone series is a yearly must read.

Drawing!

OMFG! concept art of mine


My idea for the next monster cereal flavor, Bonilla.

Mr. Hungry

Mr. Slimy

Mr. Creepy

Mr. Hairy

Mr. Glum

Mr. Kran


I've been known to dabble in the art world. I love to draw and I'm pretty much the best I know of. I started drawing Mr. Monsters a while ago. They're pretty much a spooky version of the Mr. Men and Little Miss books that were so big in the 70's. I'd like to submit some of them to the next OMFG! figure series. If I had the means and the know how I'd totally make my own figures.

Decorating!



Not the best setup. The neglected potted plants fit right in now.

This was the first year we decorated outside, thanks to the kind donation. Also, who says toys aren't decorations?

These are just a few of our favorite Halloween activities. What do other Leaguers do to celebrate?


Jamie takes a stroll around her neighborhood and checks out the local decor at Whatever I Think Of.

    1. Why thank you Joe! It was a lot of fun to finally decorate outside. We do like to mix things up to celebrate Halloween. :)

  3. Thanks Eric! These guys were drawn with black Sharpie, then scanned in and colored electronically. It's a very simple, clean look. I sure like it. :)

    I've seen some of your drawings too, they're really good!

  4. Mmmmm... Bonilla cereal. LOL. And Mr. Hairy and Mr. Kran are my favorites. Though Mr. Kran looks like he might be up to no good.

    1. Lol, yeah, Bonilla just kinda came to me this month. XD
      I wanna think up some more monster flavors. Perhaps Creature of The Blackberry or a vanilla/chocolate flavor featuring Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde somehow or U.F.Oh's cereal.

      Mr. Hairy's pretty chill. Mr. Kran went all evil though ever since he became a cyclops.

      I'm glad you like my little doodles, thanks! More Mr. Monsters to come in the future.

    1. Thanks Dex! I really enjoy thinking them up and then doodling them done on paper. :)
