Halloween Video prank


Baalatova meets the Skellies

Hello dear readers, you probably want to know what happened at the meeting.

Baalatova and the cats arrived at the Skellies' dwelling.

Baalatova (Tired, after the long walking-limp) :

Lol, am a pleased to meet you, can I  first sit down and rest?


Please do.  we are very grateful for your visit.


The reason we so much appreciate your visit is that we need to consult with you about our problem. We believe you may be able to help us. Our dearest wish is to become ghosts.  We already applied to the Ghost Academy for training but got no response.  Rumors say there is a list of application so long, it may take years (in skeletones' time) to receive an answer.

Baalatova (surprised):

I do not understand why you want to be ghosts.  Why not stay as you are, good looking skeletons with unimpaired bones?


We are tired of staying this way.  We want to be able to float around silently in a sheltered mansion, to boo with pleasure and earn the respect of fellow ghosts.


I can help you skip the Academic stage by turning you directly into ghosts, but I shall need to find my magic wand in order to do so.  I must warn you though, without academic training  you will face DANGER.  The slightest storm, not to mention tornadoes and hurricanes, can blow untrained ghosts puff- away into endless space where they will be turned into dust.  I also have to disappoint you. Ghosts CANNOT haunt together, even when are fully trained graduates of the Ghost Academy. It's a rule. One ghost in one house. This means you'll be separated from each other.

Skella and Skelly  (deeply shocked):

Oh!  No!

Baalatova: Let me think of a solution.  Meanwhile stay in touch.  My home is not very far away. You can come visiting whenever you wish.

Baalatova (turning to the cats):

Leona and Felina, will you please show me the tree where you found my shawl?  I want to look around and search for my magic wand.   I lost both shawl and wand at the same tragic fall. Maybe I'll find the wand there.

Leona and Felina (Both together):

We'll be happy to help you.

Baalatova leaves accompanied by Leona and Felina.

(To be contd.....)

Dear friends,  do you think Baalatova will find an alternative occupation for the Skellies or will
they wait for a response from the Ghost Academy.  Let's wait for the next Halloween.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!  (Watch the video bellow)

Baalatova's potions shelves and table

Dear readers,

I'm afraid I became addicted to working with styrofoam.  Cutting it is effortless and the results are good.

This little shelves are made of styrofoam.  The legs are wooden beads from a bracelet which was a cheap find.


This other wooden shelves unit will be kept for another project.

Baalatova received great gifts from very dear and generous friends.  As soon as the house is
completed their names will appear.

Blessings to all of you

The cats found a black shawl

Hello dear readers,

Since we last left the Skellies, there has been a very important turn of events.

Leona and  Felina were sent on a look out for Baalatova to see if she was coming their way.  Also to try and persuade her to  stop by and visit the Skellies.


Look Leona, there is something black and strange hanging down the tree in front?


We'll have to get nearer and see what it is.


I've never seen a thing like this.  We'd better go back and bring it to the Skellies to examine.

It's a shawl.  Ages ago I used to wear one like it on cool nights to keep me warm.

Skelly suddenly excited:

 How fortunate! Now we have a good excuse to make acquaintance with Baalatova.
 It must be cold roaming around at nights and a shawl to warm her up can be welcomed.    
 We shall send it to her with the cats.

The cats,  a little fearful,  approach Baalatova.


Hey Leona! I'm so relieved to see you again and happy that the terrible spell
did not last. Did you like the eye soup?

Leona :  Starts stuttering ......

Felina (Saves the situation):

We found this shawl hanging from a tree.  Would you like to have it?

Baalatova (Beams with pleasure):

Why!  This is my shawl.  I lost it together with my magic wand in that terrible flying- broom accident!  Oh how I missed it!
What can I do for you in return.  I see you are shaking.  Don't fear, I am not going to try any new tricks with the wrong wands.

Leona :

It is the Skellies you have to thank.  They asked us to bring  it to you.  If you like to thank them
personally, they are not far away from here.  We can show you the way.

Baalatova, after wearing the shawl feels comfortable and cozy and  in a compliant mood.

Oh well, lead on.

And this is how it happened that Baalatova will be coming to meet the Skellies on Halloween Day.

felina     , there is something strange hanging down from this tree.  Lets go and see what it is.

Working on the the witch's house

Dear readers,

Now it's October and the days are slipping away and, before you know it, Baalatova the witch will
reach her home.  I hate to think what spell she'll cast on me if she sees that her home is not ready yet.
She'll be right to be angry.  There was plenty of time to finish it while she was slowly limping home.

Let me show you what I managed to prepare lately.

A fireplace made out of food styrofoam tray.

A long low shelf made of another food syrofoam tray. The legs are wooden beads and skull beads.

The injuries Baalatova suffered from that terrible "flying broom" accident, will make it hard
for her to sleep in a hanging hammock.  I decided to build her a bedroom on the roof. Until it will
be ready, she can sleep on a mattress near the fireplace.

Blessings to all.

The Skellies' Tale continues

Hello dear readers,

Did you know that there is a great difference in time for skeletons and for the living.  A year long for us the living equals a week for the skeletons.

The Skellies are  frustrated. A "week"  has passed and no news from Leona and he friends.
Without the cats the Skellies have no link with what goes on in the living world around them.

At long last, Leona still a lizard, found the soup. Yick!! she found it so disgusting.  But was brave enough to take a sip.

Leona speeding back to the Skellies with some of the soup still stuck to her lips. She has turned back into her beautiful cat self and is very happy.

A happy reunion with the waiting Skellies.

Leona tells them about the nasty experience with Balaatova the ancient witch and her failure to turn her into a lovely Lioness.  She also complains about how revolting the magic soup was.

And as they stayed there all together, the issue about becoming ghosts came up.  Leona suggested
consulting Balaatova who was still limping but slowly approaching. The Skellies agreed it was a good idea.

If everything goes well the meeting will take place on Halloween. (to be continued.....)

For my new friends who have never read about the previous events poke here.

Blessings my friends and a happy creative week to all of you.
