But we didn’t get the brunt of it. That would be the north shore of Long Island and west of NYC from the looks of it. However we did get some serious wind and rain here. I have branches all over the lawn and returned two trash cans to my neighbors.
Today is about laundry and gathering what we need for FenCon this weekend. The cat sitter is ready to spend time with the cats and the cats have no idea what is going on except that the suitcases are out right now. I also need to gather a few things for my panels this weekend including, if I can find it, my Vincent cloak. I also need to find a Fez for Peter. Caroline has her wellness appointment today so part of my day will be at the Doctor’s office.
Faceoff was an interesting challenge. So far I am not in disagreement with who has been let go. I could sort out pretty quickly who has the short-term chops and who needs more time to get things “right”. In the world of specialty make-up, being able to think on your feet and roll with the punches shows the good from the great. Yes, you might have to sculpt that fast to get something done in time for the next days shoot. Small budget productions don’t have tons of time for set up. And haunted houses are a day in and day out grind. It is nice when you have the time, but don’t expect it. That being said, there are a time factors that you can’t get around, drying time for various things is one of then.
Hot Set I am not so sure about. I have built and dressed a lot of sets in my time. It is an interesting concept but I don’t know if the general audience would get it. I understand the lingo without the explanations that they give so that everyone else is up to speed. I can appreciate how much work went into each set. It could be a very interesting show especially to people who are doing web based episodes of things giving them ideas and short cuts that might lead them to not doing everything in front of a green screen. I will keep watching but I am not really expecting this to go beyond the first season.
Scratch the fez, someone has one so I don’t have to figure out how to transport it. Now I am onto a hat and some suspenders for Peter, which I think I have.
I am grateful that someone had a fez for Peter.
