So much to do and whats going on

It has been hectic around the shop mostly because of how sick I have been and trying to work. Both do not make a good combination so work has been delayed and has been really slow. I guess I feel guilty not working when I get sick so I still force myself to do it in the long term making myself sicker for longer. I guess a hard habit to break, so taking better steps of avoiding getting sick.

We have a lot of costumes to tackle and we thank everyone for being so very patient with us, always a big thank you. As we work we come up with new techniques, and we have a few more up our sleeve before the years end. Once I test some stuff out you guys will see what I am talking about. I guess it comes with the territory, you always want to test more durable ways of making things you did before. Or better yet a bit more predictable too, so it takes the guess work which can waste a lot of time for certain processes of our work.

Trying to tackle as many repairs as we can as we got a lot sent in last month and this month so hard to tackle all those and stay on top with all the current orders. Remember it is usually just 2 of us here with the every once in a while helper that can lend a helping hand. Usually we are on our own and tackling it all can get overwhelming. With that being said we have taken a lot less work over the next few months of opening but seeing how sick I was this last month it sorta put a kink into being ahead of schedule, I really tried guys but my body decided to try something else.

I am taking our yearly mixedcandy vacation for a week come end of this month so trying to do as much as possible. Seeing that we don't respect weekends and work through them we wanted to just make it a fun week with our friends. So if I am a bit hard to contact halloween day up to around the 6th of november it means we are out. So crazy work to be done here at the shop and a lot is getting done. I need to get a photo of all the heads are their various stages so you guys can see where we are at.


Emails, I need to finish answering them as I am still missing a few. So if you are one of the ones who has yet to get a reply please bear with us. Missing a few more emails and we should be done.

I need to head back to the FX place which isn't close to my house and get resin again. We got some the other day but I tested it last night and the lady sold us the resin that takes 15 mins to start to set instead of the one that kicks off in 2-3 mins, meaning I cannot slush cast a certain set of horns and hooves I need done asap. So back to square one with that which is really irritating seeing as I want a certain bull done and out of here soon.

So here is a bit of an update of what is going on. We are working, we are doing what we can but do expect some delays on such as I can only do so much in a month. Please understand that we will only provide the best work and will never rush to get it out just to get it out. We understand you guys make a choice on what maker to go with and I always thank you guys for choosing us. Slowly trying to get better about getting these guys out in a more timely manner.

With that said, thanks for reading. As always check our twitter for work updates and email us if you have any questions.

Been pretty sick the last month about 3 times now. Varying degrees of colds and such.
