Every Halloween my mother sifted through my Halloween candy when I got home because she said that she needed to check it for “razor blades.”

Needless to say, she never found one.

I actually did the kids in this piece about a year ago, but never dropped in a background. After digging it up last week I thought that maybe, just maybe I should finish it…you know, rather than simply letting it get crumpled up in my closet.

I think I made the right choice.

    Definitely the right choice (finishing it I mean)! It’s cool, lots of fun :)

  • Thanks! I agree, finishing it was the right thing to do. Plus, it didn’t take me long…which is also a good thing. ;)

    haha…my Mom did the same thing…now you can go and it get it x-rayed for free lol…

  • I think if my wife and I had a kid she would be checking the candy for sprinkles of Anthrax or something. Maybe it’s a female thing. ;)

    I used to check my son’s candy too – hahahaha – I think back now and think it must have been terrifying for kids to be told we have to “check for razor blades first” hahahahaha

  • My mom always liked the people who gave out pennies because of the lack of “razor blades”…me, not so much. ;)

    omg….i saw an old school horror flick where a guy did that…but he put them in apples…damn, i cant remember what movie it was but in the end, his wife ended up cooking him an apple pie with the apples! hahaha…im a dork!

  • I’m not even going to question the very obvious logistical flaws of that scene. I do however need to see that movie though. ;)

    PS – I’ve never celebrated Halloween – My tale is about water slides, my mother was obsessed with checking them for razor blades before I was allowed down one….she never did find one ;)

  • I was never able to go down water slides not because of razor blades, but because the idea of human pee filled water always weirded me out. Same with public pools. Don’t laugh at me. ;) Glad you liked the piece Lisa, thanks!

    Very whimsical……….love the costumes……especially the cat boy ! MEow …….

  • I’m thinking about wearing the same thing this Halloween…though I don’t think it’ll look as “whimsical.” ;)

    I’m glad you finished this, Steve. It’s lots of fun and bright colours, with great costumes and kids having fun. Beautifully done.

  • Thanks Clarkey! I think I made the right choice in finishing it as well. Turned out decent. (Which is rare for me to say) ;)
