Evergreen Cemetery

Evergreen Cemetery is a nice, atmospheric turn-of-the-century cemetery in Santa Cruz, California. I'll get a page of pictures up sometime soon.

Lance Pope

Another memory, this one on the first anniversary of Lance Pope's untimely demise. Lance was the creator and creative power behind Haunted Verdun Manor (and was keenly interested in werewolves). Next to him is a chango (transformation) animatronic built by Gregor Punchatz for Verdun. Lance is the one wearing a shirt.

We miss you, Lance, and know you've gone ahead to mark the trail for us.

This photo was taken at the old Forney workshop of Haunted Verdun Manor. The workshop moved to Terrell in later years.

Fursuit Bowling

Ysengrin Blackpaw throwing a bowling ball at the Moonlight Lanes in Santa Clara, California. Thanks to Diadexxus for setting up the fursuit bowling night and to Karwood for taking the picture.

Edit: The Moonlight Lanes closed in November, 2016.

Floating Werewolf Heads

Bet you wondered how we washed the fursuits. Well, here you go - both of our heads float in the same tub we use to clean our suits. We fill the tub with cold water, add rug shampoo, then drop in the suits and hand agitate.

Visiting Stag

Deer often wander through the yard; Ysengrin was about fifteen feet away when he took this picture.

View from the office

Yep, this is the view we have every day, more or less.

Edit: Well, up until we moved to a larger workshop actually down in the trees and closer to Boulder Creek, California, at the end of January 2004 ... there's a redwood that the two of us can't reach around together just outside the new shop.

Edit (2): As of 2016, the shop has moved twice more. First to Tracy, California (a more urban setting) and finally to Clarion, Pennsylvania (back out in the trees). Each time the shop has gotten bigger.
