Happy Halloween 2015!

Wednesday Addams and a whole lot more!

Firstly, I would like to remind you that for all things Halloween, you should be following my new organization Benevents on Facebook or on the official website.

That being said, I have some exciting things to share and I had to share them here because I’m bursting at the seems with pleasure!

wednesday3.jpgAs many of you may be aware, for countless Halloweens I would dress up as my alter-ego Wednesday Friday Addams (Christina Ricci version).  It was my favourite Halloween costume and still is (but I no longer have long hair, so I’ve temporarily shelved the costume).  You may also be aware of Zombie Pumpkins, the website where I get all of my pumpkin carving patterns and tools.  I have written about the owner, Ryan Wickstrand, many times.  I have interviewed him and also reviewed some of his tools.  Each time I mention him on this site, or when I actually communicate with him via email or elsewhere, I beg for a Wednesday pattern and each time he never does it!  This has been going on for years and we would always joke about it.

Well, no more joking, for today I received this very email and the actual pattern:

I could not be happier! Thank you Ryan Wickstrand! It may have taken a lot of nagging and many years of me being patient (which I suck at), but I finally have my pattern! You can have her too. Visit his website and get carving. This will be the 9th pumpkin being carved this year for Panic on Pendrith. I will possibly post pictures once done, but in case I forget, it will surely make it’s way onto the Benevents site after Halloween.

And now, here are some random shots of Panic on Pendrith in the early stages of being set-up:

Benevents!

image  Fear not! I have not fallen off the face of the earth, I have simply been busy with life. On that note, I wanted to bring to your attention my latest endeavor: Benevents. What is Benevents you ask?   It is a website that highlights all of the charity events I put on throughout the year. These events raise money for charity, namely the SickKids Foundation.

As usual, Halloween will be one of the featured events.   And while I may not be updating this website on a regular basis with info about this years’ haunt, I am constantly updating the Benevents website and Facebook page.

imageI will say this about Halloween however, this years haunt is called, “Panic on Pendrith”. And it is an entirely spider-themed spooktacular!

Again, you can find out more about this on the Benevents website and social media.

If you want to donate, but cannot make it to this event, you can also donate online through the Benevents website.

I will  definitely update this site closer to Halloween when I have time.

Yours Goughly,

Rachel “Wednesday Addams” Brown

 

Pics and vids!

This may be the quickest I’ve ever uploaded footage after Halloween. Usually it takes me months to get around to it! Go unlazy Rachel go! Not only do I have a gallery of pics, but I threw together a spiffy little video for your enjoyment. Pics and vids were taken by both Wreck-it-Mike and myself. Some on an iPhone and some on a nice camera.

On a side note: I would like to thank everyone who donated to The SickKids Foundation at Pumpkins on Pendrith. In case you were wondering (many people asked) Haunt on the Hill keeps none of the money collected. We count it and then we deposit that amount to the online donation page on this website, which is a SickKids run page that was set up years ago when we first started collecting donations. SickKids has always been my preferred charity of choice.
