Halloween Horror Nights 26 Prep!

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us, boys and ghouls! Autumn is in the air, and Halloween is creeping up on us. You know what that means — Halloween Horror Nights!

Some of the houses I’m particularly excited about – The Exorcist, AHS, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Halloween – have had my happy little horror loving brain so excited that I can barely focus. I’m finalizing plans and tickets. I’m freaking out with excitement because I know I’ll be there Sunday, finally basking in the awesome which is Universal, and Halloween Horror Nights.

I decided to pack my Blood Brothers shirt from Terror Threads to wear for the event itself. Fitting, since last year they had the Freddy vs Jason house, and this year they’ve brought Michael Myers and Leatherface back.  Plus, this shirt is ridiculously cool and comfortable, as are all of the shirts from Terror Threads. If you love horror, you’ll definitely love their products.

We start the drive to Orlando Friday night, so there probably won’t be any new posts here until I’m back. Can’t wait to come back with loads of pictures for you guys!

Here’s the rest of the house line up from the official Halloween Horror Nights site:

Nerd in New York

I recently went on a last minute trip out of town, and had a free day to run around in New York. It’s been eight years since I’ve been in the Big Apple, and I’ve missed it quite a bit. I’m from small town, middle of America, and big cities are always fascinating to me. It’s a constant feeling of go-go-go, where there is always something to do or somewhere to go — pretty much the opposite of how it works where I live! And I hate to be bored, sooo…

I took the train into the city, and headed straight for Times Square. I was greeted with comforting images:

Fathom Events: The Killing Joke

KillingJoke

One of my all time favorite comics I’ve read, and can easily quote, is Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore, with illustrations by Brian Bolland. If you aren’t familiar with it, The Killing Joke was a one shot published by DC Comics in 1988, and has one of the most widely accepted backstories for the Joker, though the comic stresses it could just be one of many possible back stories. As the Joker says in the comic: ” If I’m going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!”

Cosplans: Suicide Squad premiere

HarleyQuinn

It’s no surprise that I’m pretty excited to see the first appearance of my favorite character on the big screen. I’ve been a fan of Harley Quinn since day one of Batman: the Animated Series. And now, I get to see a version of her inspired by her appearance in Suicide Squad (the comics), and portrayed by the lovely Margot Robbie!

So, of course, I had to plan an outfit for the occasion. Here’s the cosplay progress so far:

Day Trip: Elephant Rocks

Hiking and nature trails are among my top favorite things to do on weekends. Luckily, I live in the middle of nowhere, and there are loads of state parks and trails and everything else around me to go adventuring on. One of my favorite places is Elephant Rocks.

Elephant Rocks, named for the giant boulders, which some compare in size and/or shape to elephants. The hiking is fantastic, and has some stunning scenery.

And there are some fantastic adventures to be had on this trail.

If you’re planning to visit Missouri, or maybe you’ll be passing thru the state sometime, and wanna check it out, you can visit this site here and learn more.

I’d love to cover more trails and parks in the future! Let me know what you think!
