Bubba Comes Home

Here is another great picture from Horrorhound weekend. This is the second time I've had the privilege to meet J.D.Feigelson, writer of Dark Night of the Scarecrow. JD's table was filled with dvd's, pictures and memorabilia from DNOTS. He also had the original mailman hat worn by Charles Durning's character Otis Hazelrigg in the movie.
When he saw me in full costume, he was thrilled! At times it was difficult to tell who was more excited, him or me! He liked my costume so much he gave me an autographed picture free of charge! I happily posed for several pictures and JD even let me wear the Otis mailman hat.  I was a bit surprised to see so many people taking pictures of the scarecrow. I'm glad to see just how well loved DNOTS is after all these years. What a fun experience!

Thought I should point out that there are two things missing from my costume. A keen eye will notice there is no rope around my waist. Yep I forgot it at home. And I left the pitchfork home too. JD said I should definitely bring the pitchfork next time.

Oh and I really like how my eyes can't be seen through
the mask even with the camera flash.  : )

  2. Recently was at someone's house for a "B-rated" horror/pizza/beer night and we got to talking about movies that scared the crap out of us when we were kids; Dark Night came up as one of mine. He was invited to a surprise 40th B-day party my wife had thrown for me a few weeks ago and he bought me a copy of the DVD, I was thrilled! Haven't seen it since it originally terrified me at age 10 or so. Watched half the other night and will finish it out tonight. Just wish I could rewind back to those days where I wasn't so cynical and would let things scare me! Great costume, man...

  3. It's nice to have those memories of things that frighten us when we were kids. Being able to enjoy those same things now as we are older makes me really appreciate them much more.
