Voodoo Shanty

Posted by Sharkey

Martha loves Halloween and every year she outdoes herself.  For her Halloween Special this year, she and her talented TV crew created a Haunted House so scary, that even I was too afraid to go in!  Luckily, Francesca and crafter Kristin St. Clair showed me that it was all for fun!

If you missed Martha's Haunted House, you can catch it again on Monday, October 31st at 10am on Hallmark Channel!

Franny, maybe I can go through it with my eyes closed and it won't be so scary!

But when I do open my eyes, look at the first thing I see!  It's the horrifying Voodoo Woman!  I don't think the Haunted House is for me!

Sharkey, seriously!  There's nothing to be afraid of!

This isn't a REAL Voodoo Woman, it's Kristin St. Clair!  She's one of the amazing crafters who works on Martha's TV show.  It's only a costume, just scarier than ours!

Kristofer Buckle did a great job on her makeup.  You can't even tell it's her!  And the contact lenses give her an extra spooky effect!

Wow, this isn't so bad, after all.  Kristin's Voodoo Shanty is great!  Look at all of these jars of creepy crawlies!

Kristin collected real dead birds, snake skins, and hair balls for the set.  Yuck, but they really do the job!

Franny, I really like this box of bones.  Wasn't she so nice to think of her canine guests!  This party is going to be great!

  • Good Morning F & S

    I just love your costumes you both look great. Mom has all her candy ready for the kids. I get to see all the costumes because Mom has to hold me when she answers the door otherwise I'll run out front and chase the kids ;)

    I'm not happy even a little bit this morning I have a 9:00 appointment with the groomer. In fact we ALL do!! The carpets are getting cleaned and so are we Mom said it's Fall cleaning for everything and everyone :(

    I think I'll go hide so she can't find me.........

  • Good morning girls,
    If they had a Project Runway show for animals, you girls would definitely be on it. The both of you are just too adorable in your costumes.
    Good luck with the groomer Zoe. Hey, if you eat her brush, she can't groom you. Just a thought.
    My friend Harley just got groomed yesterday. I get done next week again. Oh, the price of being handsome. hehehehe
    I hope everyone has some fun today.
    Later,

  • Hello Ladies,
    I watched the Halloween special, and the only thing wrong with it, was that you were not in it more. It was very spooky and your costumes are the greatest. Will you be in those for trick or treaters on Monday? I don't get to go to the door. I stay in the tv room with Dad. A lot kids come to our house because Mom and Dad give away "real" candy bars as some of the kids call them---full size. Well today is the "D" day I have been stressing about all week---the doctor. We have gotten 4 inches of snow already and it sure was funny this morning as Mom was chasing me around the yard in the snow, in her slippers to get a sample of my poop when I was doing my business. I think the doctor will be happy at my weight. I hope so. I have gained some back. Did I tell you I have these cool stairs now, so I can get up and down the couch and bed. Someone told Mom just to let me sleep on the floor and she laughed. I guess they know who is boss. I will try and report back later, as tomorrow is Dad's retirement party. Have a good day all and keep your paws crossed for me at the doctor's office.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    OK now I see. That’s makeup and she doesn’t always look that way. Had me worried for a minute there with you two so close. I thought that she had Franny for sure but it’s all part of the act. When Daddy dresses up for trick or treat, he tries to scare me but that doesn’t work. I know who he is by his smell. Now don’t get the wrong idea here, dogs identify people by their smell. Daddy takes a bath regularly. Mommy is going to do the shopping this morning so no walks for me until later on. Just hate that but on the other hand, she always brings me home something good to eat. Until she returns, I’ll just take a nap.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., First of all we had a beautiful sunrise this morning. With a little fog, a few clouds, and some sky showing, we had a pink, light blue, and white colored sky over our Puget Sound area. It usually looks like that with much brighter, darker colors at night. Sure love seeing you two adorable girls in these photos! Franny, you were so good to help Sharkey finally get over her fear and go through Martha's Haunted House with Kristin St. Clair in that scary costume! I got to see GK on Martha's blog today and he look so relaxed on the patio! Hey Basil, my prayers are with you, my buddy and my paws are crossed-do well! Hope everyone has another great day and take care! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Will you two be handing out treats for Halloween in your costumes like last year? Franny you look totally unfazed by the Voodoo Woman, she's very scary looking. I don't blame you Sharkey.

    Saying that your Mom loves Halloween is an understatement. :wink: I saw GK chilling out on the patio on MommyM's blog. I think this year he needs devil horns for all of his extracurricular activities. :wink:

    Good luck today Basil Boy at the Dr.'s. Try not to tease your mom too much.
