Blue monster’s lonely castle

If you like birds, projection booths, lonely castles, hot air balloons and disco dancing zombies, never fear, DAY 22 is here!
Kristen Pepe does it again! With a wonderful little film absolutely packed with really cool monsters and cats, skilled and pretty color combinations, and some totally fantastic pop culture reference clues that make this short film enjoyable for everyone! For instance: did you notice the Night of the Comet movie poster in the theater where the projectionist bird works? There’s also reference to a certain teen witch, as well as some zombies who come out to play.

This piece is not unlike the sitcom Three’s Company in that there is a misunderstanding of a situation (in this case, Blue Monster doesn’t understand that Halloween isn’t about getting bullied, it’s about dressing up and having mischievous fun) and calamity ensues. There is plenty of calamity, and heartwarming selflessness as friends help each other, and there’s even a few spells you want to remember.

If you’re hidden away in your lonely castle, don’t end up like the Phantom of the Opera, come out and play with us this Halloween!

I’m sure you thought we forgot about things here in gothtoberland, but we have been busy getting everything ready for your viewing pleasure. That and we had a fantastic CrafttNight at AKBAR in Los Angeles putting together the fantastic cars that Lush Newton (day 10) designed.

 

But here you go. Have you ever lost your shoes? Really lost them? Especially the boots that you really loved and are just dying to wear to go out dancing tonight? Well, XKiller did, and she made a great flash animation about it. You can see that on day 14.

 

Day 15 features Miss Lori, who returns to gothtober with a puppet operetta about a besotted mother and her little girl. There are lessons to be learned about how to dress your child –  don’t you ignore them!

 

Day 16’s Dark Adams is also a gothtober veteran, and he gives us a peek into the Weird, Wild Old West (or at least what it may have sounded like.) Follow the instructions and download his mp3 file for your listening pleasure.
