A forlorn soul gazes at the shell of his former self. He'll search for his lost noggin later and keep the jack-o'-lantern for appearance's sake. This photo consists of two shots, one made partially transparent and then layered onto the other. The pumpkin is the foam kind, easy to carve and long lasting.
一个孤独的灵魂盯着自己身前的躯壳。他稍后再去找丢失的脑袋,为了看上去不至于太恐怖,先戴上个空心南瓜当脑袋吧。这张照片其实包含两张,一张半透明的覆盖在另一张上。南瓜是泡沫材料的,容易雕刻且耐用。

mirror, mirror

A partygoer admires his reflection -- just the sort of turn of events one expects on Halloween. To create the fun-house illusion, we mounted mirrored film to a sheet of curved posterboard and then slipped it into a frame.

disembodied limb

7. Disembodied Limb
与肉体脱离的肢体

Moths flutter around a lantern that illuminates the way for masquerading revelers on a dark night. Panic strikes when they realize the hand carrying the lantern is lacking a body. We wired vellum moths to a paper lantern, then hung it from a craggy branch, which was held by a hand reaching through a curtain.
飞蛾围绕着灯笼扑闪着翅膀,灯笼在黑夜为参加化妆舞会的狂欢者照亮前路。当他们发现提着灯笼的手没有身体时,恐惧瞬间来袭。我们用皮纸做成蛾子,用金属丝把它们同灯笼连接起来,然后把灯笼悬挂在蜿蜒的树枝上,从帘幕后伸出手来提灯笼。

毛骨悚然的糖果容器

It's Halloween, and patches are full of pumpkins just waiting to provide spine-tingling thrills on the big fright night. Carving them into jack-o'-lanterns is always fun, but transform a few into candy holders with looks that could chill, and they can play a crucial role as keepers of the goodies.
万圣节到处都是南瓜,等待着在夜晚提供令人毛骨悚然的刺激。把南瓜刻成空心南瓜灯当然百试不厌,不过也可以把它们变成有着惊悚表情的糖果容器,这样在糖果保卫战中它们可是能充当重要角色呢。

这些乐于助人的蜘蛛会为客人拿取小吃献上一臂之力。用剪刀剪下塑料蜘蛛戒指上的蜘蛛,然后用针从中间穿孔。把牙签插进洞里,再把牙签顶部涂成黑色。和小块零食一起端出,比如意大利干酪球。

虽然这碗节日潘趣酒不会产生和真的美杜莎(古希腊神话蛇发女怪)一样的效果,把盯着看的人变成石头。不过当你的客人把目光投向碗里,却发现一个蛇发妖怪朝它们看过来的时候,肯定会把他们惊呆的。
