"Who ever is bitten by a werewolf....

"Who ever is bitten by a werewolf and lives becomes a werewolf himself"~Maleva, the gypsy woman played by Maria Ouspenskaya.

Lon Chaney Jr. starred as the Wolfman in the indisputed horror classic.. Wolfman, which was released December 12, 1941.

This werewolf softie is made from wool fabric with a felted wool and fur face. He has little fur ears that are lined with brown velveteen fabric. His teeth are made from Sculpey. Brown eyes peer out through his furry face! He wears a green check jacket made from a brothcloth blend fabric with distressed buttons. His shirt is made from a lightweight canvas with a pistachio nut logo on the front. He wears black wool fabric pants and even has a rope belt!

"Even when a man is pure of heart and says his prayers at night, may still become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright"~ Curt Siodmak

Don't be Somebody's Zombie!!!!!

A zombie appears in spooky books, films and popular culture. They are typically depicted as mindless and under the control by someone or SOMETHING by the casting of some magic spell.
Is there a possiblity to be under such an influence in everyday life { just not in the way we visualize it would be }... like in films ? Would you know if it if you actually were under such an influence? If you can be affected by love...why not evil?

This little guy, thankfully is a "good zombie" and made from new and recycled materials.

Creation of a Monster

In the original horror classic film, Frankenstein which was released in 1931 the monster was created by Dr. Frankenstein himself. Boris Karloff played the part of the monster. My inspiration for creating and making this monster softie came from that very movie. He is completely handcrafted...knit from yarn except for his scarred face...and is fabric backed. He stands about 14"tall with button "bolts" on the sides of his neck. He is waiting for you!

Spooky Lighthouse

This gourd was handpainted by Dorothy Woropay. A spooky scene, the waves crashing against the rocky shoreline with bats flying in the moonlite night sky.

Pumpkin Head Fairy

The season of Halloween is drawing near! It has inspired me to create this pumpkin head fairy.
It was made with both new and recycled fabrics. The front of the body was knit with various colors of wool yarn. Vintage buttons adorn the little sweater. I was not able to capture the full sheer black wings that are attached on it's back. It is as though the wings got lost in the photo!
