HDH100 - Varying Visages of Vincent... & a little BLOG CANDY-CORN!

Ok, macabre fans... this week marks HDH's 100th challenge! I can't believe it... who knew there were so many creeptastically cool people out there?! Thanks to everyone for tuning in and having fun with this little ol' blog :)

So, to celebrate this milestone, we're going to do a few things different this week >;) The general list of rules still apply (see sidebar), so be sure to follow them to be considered for the coveted Gruesome Twosome & Master of the Macabre titles!

There is BLOG CANDY-CORN to be had this week! That's right... keep reading...

Did you know that Vincent Price would've been 100 this year?!
Yes, so it is divine providence that this week's challenge is:

"Varying Visages of Vincent"

(translates to: the many faces of Vinny)
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that is inspired by the TRUE Master of the Macabre, Vincent Price.
A movie, character, poem, narration, song or quote... anything that the great Vincent Price has touched can be used for inspiration. If you need a little help, HERE is a link for some images, HERE is the official Vincent Price website, and HERE is a link to a website with some audio clips.

Now, about the blog candy... Here's a pic so far:


There are rubber and clear stamps, a handful of cards created by The Masterful Mistress herself, chipboard shapes and letters, altered chipboard purse & album pages, skullies, ribbons, floss, embellishments, Distress Stickles, rub-ons... Even a cute stuffed jacko (he's my favorite)... and much much MORE!

As we get more comments & challenge entries,
there MIGHT be more thrown in throughout the week!
AND some of the Minions will be giving away additional blog candy on their own blogs...
be sure to check them out!

The rules for entering blog candy drawing:
1. Readers shall hop to each of the Macabre Minions blogs to see their take on the challenge...
readers must comment on each of the (6) posts.
2. Spread the word about the candy corn via your blog, Twitter, whatevah. Then just comment on this HDH post with a link to the announcement about it.
3. If you play along with the HDH Macabre Monday 100th challenge, you get TWO extra chances to win... just linky up and then add two more comments. We will be selecting a Gruesome Twosome like we normally do.

Now let's see what the Minions have in store for you:

Sultana of the Sinister Lynx

Creepy Cricut Cween Donna

Devious Digital Demoness Susan

Agent of the Abominable Andrea

Temptress of Terror Teri
Cadaverous Concoctor of Chaos Creepy Glowbugg


We can't wait to see everyone's take on this VIVP (Very Important Vincent Price) challenge!

In case you don't get to drop by my blog (we're all freakin' busy) ... I thought you'd get a giggle out of this: The post I wrote for this piece is my 100th of 2011.

Oogie boogie, huh?

I just finished the bloghop. Hard work for me as I haven't done a blog hop for months and I've almost forgot how to comment on blogs.

But first: congratz for the 100th challenge. Although I don't have much time at the moment I love coming here and looking at the projects of the Minions and the participants. Sometimes, the first thing that I do on monday morning is checking the Challenge.

I also made a small lsidebar post to your candy. I haven't done this for a long time so I had to remember how to do ;-)

lachsekatze said...

Ohh and I did finish the challenge!
I was short before giving up because I couldn't draw Vincent Price. But I was lucky and found I film role of him I could draw: The invisible man.
