STEP 2. Trim a 4 inch length of pipe cleaner and wrap it around a pencil to form a spring. Leave one end straight to stick into the wreath form.
STEP 3. Glue a googly eye on the curly end of the pipe cleaner spring. Repeat this process until you have 15-20 eyes, or as many as you think will cover your wreath.
STEP 4. Insert the eyes into the wreath form until the wreath has plenty of peepers. Hang on your door and let the scares begin!

We were also super excited to see that our friend from Sistas wit Style won for Queen of the carnival!!!! Here is what winner Kianna Rachal had to say about her win…
“…It’s fulfilling to see all the hard work put into Carnaval. It’s so exciting to see Sistas-Wit-Style come down the road with so much energy and excitement with smiles across our masqueraders faces — it brings so much joy… To prepare for Carnaval, Sistas-Wit-Style has been teaching free Caribbean dance classes to our Masqueraders every Saturday which are optional, our mas camp is open day and night for costume production… I would love to send special thanks to our designers at Sistas-Wit-Style; Annabelle Goodridge, Stephanie Dixon, Tiara Welch, Azer Moore. Our many volunteers and masqueraders as well because without them there would be no Sistas-Wit-Style…” – THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER OF CARNAVAL SAN FRANCISCO –– DIGITAL EDITION
Harlem Nights’ Joe I. Tompkins was nominated for an Academy Award for best costume design and we can see why just by looking at this movie still of the lovely Jasmine Guy as Dominique La Rue. Of course we love the Ostrich Feather details used throughout the whole film! And while the movie is now a cult classic, the costume design is more than enough reason to watch and the Academy agreed!
“I originally thought we should shoot in black-and-white, but after researching, I decided to make black skin tones the most essential color in the film and use a limited palette. That would set off and highlight the beautiful skin tones of our cast, which was mostly black. I didn’t know what Eddie and Larry Paull and Joe Tompkins would think about this, so I created a color chart to demonstrate my idea. After seeing it, they supported the idea, and it became the basis for the look of the entire picture. In that environment, a few very strong color accents seemed to jump off the screen, but most importantly, the skin tones of the actors dominated each scene.” – Woody Omens, the film’s cinematographer
