If you think it’s not time to start thinking about Gothtober, you obviously haven’t been to the CRAFT store lately! Suddenly, all of the little sand pails and BBQ notepads have disappeared and have been replaced by foam pumpkins and hay bales!
Maybe you don’t know what kind of thing you want to make for Gothtober, here are some of the things we’ve seen in the last 12 years:
3 minute films – crazy, funny, scary, weird, complicated, simple, sexy, terrifying, endearing, sentimental, naughty, bawdy, barmy, beanie, funky, musical, etc.
Crafts – Cut-outs, coloring pages, how-to-projects like masks, games or paper models
Recipes – Shared blueprints for delicious delectables, soups, salads, baked goods and other Halloween Time Treats.
Music – Recorded performances of a song, or a mix of other songs, downloadable mixes, sound effects and other audible goodies.
Stories – Written stories and ideas, shared lists of places or scary books or things to do, epic mysteries that keep Gothtober readers on edge, ghoulish poems, essays, tales from the crypt…
Photos – Photo essays and slideshows that can tell a story or just present things beautifully! Show us your sock collection, the guy who pumps up the inflatable pumpkin at the car dealership every morning, show us your town, show us your costumes!
Anything Else! – Sometimes people make things we’ve never ever heard of, which is very exciting indeed!
This year will be the FIRST year of the Gothtober Ichabod Awards, stay tuned for that, but in the meantime, get your gray matter gunnin’ for some ideas and send us your application ASAP!
