My personal Monsterfest and an Fall Kitty

Hello! This is my first post because I have spent all free time leading up to this past weekend knitting 3 shawls, sewing a dress for my 9 month old, and hemming and altering my bridesmaid's dress. I was doing all of this for my SIL's wedding. It was a truly beautiful fall wedding! I hope to upload a few shots to share. Until then, here is a Pointy Kitty I have made up from the Wee Wonderfuls site in some very Autumn colors. The kitty turned out much smaller than I expected, but it was not too bad to make.

For the past few years, my husband and I have taken time in October to have our own little MonsterFest. AMC used to have some really great ones, then they started putting commercials in them, and then the movies started being from the late 70s and up to the 90s. I'm a big fan of older movies, and this just was no good for me. So we make up our own. Tonight we will begin the festivities! We haven't exactly gigured out when we will watch what, but these are the movies I hope to work in over the next 15 days:

Phantom of the Opera - 1925
Diary of a Madman - 1963
Village of the Damned - 1960
Children of the Damned - 1964
House of Dark Shadows - 97 min (if we run out of time, this will be one of the first on the dropped list)
The Beast with Five Fingers - 1946
Masque of the Red Death - 1964
Tower of London - 1939
Invasion of the Body Snatchers - 1956
The Leopard Man - 1943
Kwaidan - 1964
The Mysterious Doctor - 1943
The Walking Dead - 1936
And the MXC Monster Episode, Monsters vs. Mascots

We love our MonsterFests, and what is great about this year is that we've only seen two of these before! Each year we think we've seen it all and there will be nothing new, but then we search and find new, old, scary movies to watch!

I must also get to work on my 4 year old's Halloween costume. He wants to be Rodney Copperbottom from the movie Robots. I think I have some scrap fabric that will work, and he wants to use boxes to make his costume, so I have a bit of thinking to do.
Will report with more before too long!

What a movie list -- I'm not even sure I've heard of all of them! Your Pointy Kitty turned out nice, good to know that it turned out smaller than expected -- I have the pattern too but haven't made it yet. I may have to enlarge it a bit :) Glad to hear you were able to finish all of your shawls and dresses and things for the wedding, I knew you were a busy gal. Thanks for posting and I look forward to seeing more photos!
