HORROR!

Kimo hard to believe it is another year, now looking at the comments I nominate three of your creations for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place . Those being John Henry , Margaret Goss  & Michael Jacobs  in no particular order. Maybe that should be a blog post and the community could vote on it?:)Endre

Good morning Kimo Stowell,

I've missed the Masquerade and Costume ball in the past and this year I'm going to be sure to make it! My attire probably won't be gruesome or bloody as I'm not into scary movies or being scared! But I'll come up with something.

Looking forward to seeing the pet posts.  Costumes on dogs get more inventive each year.  Good job on those ActiveRain centric horror movie posters.  Very festive.
