Here is a photo of my witch’s hat and the start of my broom for my steampunk witch Halloween costume. The hat has copper wire sewn up in a spiral and a couple little keys on it. I hope to make my broom more steampunk by making it “do” something to simulate flight. We’ll see. The broom is made of alder twigs and a larger alder branch gathered near my home. Gotta love the windstorms this time of year!
As for my news, a story I wrote, Patched Up, is going to be featured on my coworker’s awesome Podcast for his Halloween edition. His Podcast, Friends of the Void, is a story-within-a-story with various author’s stories woven into a continuing thriller. Another of my ultra-creative coworkers also has a story in this episode, so it’s going to be totally awesome. Our episode drops on Saturday, but give the other episodes a listen because the main story is amazing. Also, Mat Hudson is a creative genius, so check out his website, too!
