Ok folks, remember Halloween 2006? We had what started out as a small contest – ya know… a costume, gadget, haunted house & jack-o-lantern contest, that is, until thousands of entries came pouring in! It became clear to everyone that Halloween is the holiday for Makers, so we’re doing an entire issue on Halloween this year! DIY HALLOWEEN 2007 is from the editors of MAKE & CRAFT and brings you 40-plus DIY projects for the holiday that’s made for makers. From the craftiest costumes to amazing animated props and the latest in computer-controlled haunted house effects, this special issue will include: headless Marie Antoinette costume, mechanical ghosts and ghouls, LED and laser jack-o’-lanterns, creature makeup and blood-spurting wounds, DIY coffins and tombstones, T. Rex rooftopper, flaming LED skulls, kid-tested haunted house tricks, and a special “Ghoulbox” section with Halloween kits, tools, and gadgets. Plus demonic decorations, hideous party snacks, and profiles of extraordinary makers and their creepy crafts.
If you’re going to Maker Faire, bring your costume and Halloween projects, if you’re working on something amazing now – let us know. Happy Halloween!
