Extreme Cosplay

The Dark Crystal played a major creative role in my childhood. Falling in love with the Skeksis creatures kinda sealed the deal back then. My brother and I would often talk about building a Skeksis costume when we were kids, but we never followed through. I think we built the head though.

A Dougherty Halloween: 2010

A ton of great shots from Mike Dougherty's 2010 Haunt and Party.
Just stunning. And fitting from the director of Trick 'r Treat.

(Thrilled that one of my zombies was part of all that.)

Thanks, Mike! These are amazing.
